Best Items from the Dominion 1.1 Patch Notes

Dominion patch 1.1 has been deployed in EVE Online and you can find the full release notes here.

But two things caught my eye in the notes.

EVE Voice, Mail & Chat

  • Voice fonts have now been added to EVE Voice. This new feature will allow you to alter your voice during chat to increase or lower pitch or to change from male to female voices. This is certainly not going to be abused in any way.

Too true indeed.

Drones

  • Drones can now be used to attack Zephyrs in wormhole space.

I would have loved to have heard a live feed from the first pilot unsuccessfully trying to get his drones to kill a Zephyr in wormhole space.

Now to wait for the EVEMon update so I can see how long it will take me to fly a super carrier and deploy fighter bombers. (New with Dominion 1.1, and things I am unlikely to ever even see, much less fly!)

And why does “fighter bomber” always bring up the image of a P-47 in my mind?

Hulkageddon Returns!

If you are mining in EVE Online you had best keep an eye on who is coming and going in your system and make sure you have a your shield booster ready to activate, because it looks like Hulkageddon will return.

Yes, from January 7th through the 14th of 2010 the swarthy pirate set will be vying for billions of ISK in prize money plus special achievement awards, all for killing the most mining ships in Empire space.  You can even send in your guess as to how many Hulks you think will die in Hulkageddon II.

This is just the sort of emergent gameplay that sandbox games encourage.

Coming to a New Eden solar system near you!

Meanwhile a co-worker also reports that somebody is offering up a bounty to the person who can kill the most Zephyr scout ships in a 24 hour period.  Does somebody have any details on that?
