About five years ago, on April 27th, 2008, I joined the Massively team and wrote the very first issue
of the EVE Evolved
column. Five years later, the column is still going strong and delivering its weekly dose of EVE Online
to thousands of readers. I used to worry about running out of ideas to write about, but regular game updates and hilarious player shenanigans mean there's always something interesting going on in New Eden. When EVE
hits its 10th anniversary in May, this column will have been running for just over half of the game's lifetime. In that time, I've written over 250 in-depth articles, guides, in-game stories and opinion pieces on EVE Online
and a few on DUST 514
As usual, I'll be celebrating this anniversary by rounding up this year's column highlights and giving away two 30-day Pilot's License Extensions
to two lucky readers. To enter the competition, write a comment explaining which EVE Evolved articles from this year you liked best and what topics you'd like to see covered in the coming year. You will need an active EVE
account to claim the prize, so be sure to include your character name in your comment if you want to be in with a chance. If you'd rather not give out your character name or don't have an EVE
account but would like to give the game a go, you can sign up a new trial account
and use the name of your new character.
In this week's EVE Evolved, I look back at the highlights from the column's fifth year!
