If there's one thing the EVE Online
community is well known for (apart from the occasional colossal scam
or game-breaking exploit
), it's producing great videos. In its nine-year history, EVE
has birthed some very talented video editors who have produced everything from political propaganda and instructional videos to amazing cinematic stories and machinima. The official game trailers have always turned heads, but I'd bet a significant number of current players were first introduced to EVE
through player-made works of art like Kyoko Sakoda's War Has Come
or Mercenary Coalition's Lacrimosa Tortuga
It's easy to fixate on only the best EVE
videos ever made, but in reality, dozens of new videos are released every month. Some are cinematic story pieces or alliance propaganda videos designed to motivate the troops, but most are just compilations of good PvP fights. While PvP videos are unlikely to grab the universal acclaim of incredible films like Clear Skies
or Future Proof
, they arguably show the very core of EVE
at its best: good fights, solid strategy, and pretty explosions.
In this week's EVE Evolved
, I look at four great new EVE Online
videos produced just in the past few months.
