  1. Nice podcast. Too bad people keep thinking they have to dump on E-U. Eve-Uni has been dying for 5 years that I know of…


    E-U *does* work to keep people in the game, and it does work to educate players about the game, for almost a decade now. To dismiss that is to dismiss all the players, in all the alliances that are still out there today. One of the things it does is provides a place for players who *aren’t* a part of any other group or organization to build relationships in game that they might not otherwise meet, then take those friends and go elsewhere.

    I’ve enjoyed watching E-U keep on, keeping on for 5+ years myself now. Here’s to many more!

    • Agreed. They provide a great service to both their students and to the community at large, and nobody can honestly deny that. If you’re EveU and reading this, as a non student with no affiliation, I salute you.

  2. I don’t think any alliance is above reproach. EVE Uni has done awesome work for the community but it doesn’t mean they’ve done the best job, taken the best approach, or wont ever be overshadowed by something in the future. It’s fun to speculate!
