Good to see a game keep churning right along these days.

Don't play EvE but happy for those who do. Congrats

Right now the Russians control a big chunk of Eve. It would be great if this made Eve's power struggle a whole lot more interesting.

Probably not, my guess is that the Nexon pairing probably won't attract all that many new JP players, especially considering the game has always been available in Japan, just not with a localized client.

I am guessing you must play a lot of Japanese language games?

Not sure where you got that from, but I do play some JP games, mostly console however. Though I've also spent some time in FF11/14, which has a very sizable JP population as well.

Right now the russians control almost nothing. Once again, like in the past, they banded together to conquer enemy space, then started fighting themselves. But i see your point, who knows how 0.0 will be split among the powerblocks one year from now, after they settle in.

Is this available in Korea, too?

@Space Cobra

as a localized client? no, but those who wants to play from Korea can still use the English client as far as I know, just like the Japanese players did before CCP partnered with Nexon.

Am I the only one who wants to play on this server because it's a fresh start? I'd love to play on a server where there are no huge alliances already in place and everyone is just starting out.

You seem to have misunderstood the article. All CCP did was launch a new localized client and partnering up with Nexon, there are no new server, as the new Japanese client still connects to Tranquility.

@laelgon Never mind, for some reason I thought they were getting their own server like China did. Derp.

The Chinese got their own server because of the Chinese government. Much like how global facebook isn't allowed in China, instead they have a Chinese version of facebook the government can monitor. The Chinese authorities did not want their citizens on global EVE where they can't watch them. Not that there isn't a way around that but the Chinese client is China only.

CCP has always wanted one game world, they created another server because its the cost of doing business in China. China wants their citizens away from rabble rousing westerners whose ideas may harm social harmony.

It amazes me why anyone would want to play a game where the devlopers CCP are so complicit in the cyber bulling . I don't think expansion to into new countries is what CCP should be concentrating on now . They should be looking at cleaning up thier act and making sure sanctions against extreme cases as we have just seen are far more effective and servere . I cant think of one other gaming company that would have mishandled recent events ( a months ban for what is actually a crime ) in the way they have. CCP are a disgrace .

@NValca Yes until CCP takes the appropriate steps expect to see it in every single EvE post.

They already took what they consider to be appropriate steps. If you deem that sufficient, then call them, email them, write them, hell, call your congressman if you want.

Or you can just keep yelling in these threads, which accomplishes nothing other than annoying other readers.
