Heroes – Eve BB #54
Welcome to the continuing monthly EVE Blog Banters and our 54th edition! For more details about what the blog banters are visit the Blog Banter page.
This whole hero thing is very subjective. What is a hero to some, can be a villain for others ! To address the question on Classic Heroes in Eve. I guess Chribba qualifies. The most trustworthy person in Eve. It’s even his job in Eve to be trustworthy and is widely known within the game. Another one would be Eve University that did a lot for the game, but I cannot pinpoint that to one person. Sindel Pellion and her Angel project might be a hero, especially for those she helps.
But these are somewhat obvious examples of heroes in Eve, I guess the classic ones. So I would disagree that we don’t have any. But since Eve is somewhat different from other games / MMOs the heroes in Eve are different as well. Pirates and scammers can become heroes. A good FC will be a hero within their corporation. And maybe even outside of it. Eve being different is what attracts the new players I would think. These are usually the stories that get into the press. Even the main stream press.
I’d say don’t worry too much about heroes. They usually become one without the intention of becoming one. If that honour befalls on you, very well. If not, just carry on being yourself ;).
