What a year it has been so far for the EVE: Valkyrie Community. Not only have we now launched on Oculus Rift and PSVR and released two major free updates working with the Community, but we’ve also – take a deep breath for this next part – seen three Battle-the-Devs events, two Double XP weekends, a PSVR subreddit AMA, incredible player organized tutorial nights, EU Vs NA tournaments and Duel Nights, a Rumble in Reykjavik EVE Fanfest Tournament (our second, the Tournament of Champions is on the way for EVE Vegas!) two creative competitions (three winners getting their entries made into in-game decals), one player-run sticker challenge, multiple community live streams, IRL player presentations, video guides and podcasts, a host of Pilot meet-ups including Fanfest in Iceland, G-Fleet in Germany, Newcastle in England and more on the way! Phew!
This is only a handful of the bigger stuff going on, and there's a ton of other memorable moments our Pilots have had just by being part of the community and playing EVE: Valkyrie together. There’s an awesome thread on the EVE: Valkyrie Community forums where Pilots have been sharing their experiences. Here’s just a few of the finest:
“The wtf moment when @Beans75 got really good and killed me 5 times in a row.” Takn
“the first time I went through a warp gate... straight into an asteroid!” GeneralStargazer
“That first carrier takedown. Watching that ship explode and break apart for the first time was an awesome mouth agape moment.” Wan5
“That time @MrShooter filled the carrier corridor with so many mines that it was like flying through blue jello.” Superkev
If you fancy getting involved in the EVE: Valkyrie community, or want to share your finest experiences head on over to our official forums and check out the thread for some of our pilots' most momentous events.
You can also find out how all our pilots chose those wonderful callsigns.
It’s amazing to think that this is only the beginning. With another platform launch on the horizon and new pilots joining the ranks every day, the community is going to get bigger still and even more awesome (if that’s possible)! We're looking forward to reading more of your memorable moments, and we raise a glass of Quafe to you in the Crow’s Nest for all the moments that are still to come.
Fun times, pilots!
