If you’ve been following EVE Online this week, you might have noticed something unique. In a world where we talk mostly about the player war and the great player-run corporations of EVE Online, it’s not everyday we see NPC factions bombarding each other. Yet twice this week capsuleers have been treated to these events.
On Tuesday, EVE Online saw a flurry of activity as Naglfar-class dreadnoughts from the Minmatar Republic started to bombard the planet of Tanoo II, the capital planet of the Ammatar Mandate. The three Naglfar dreads were destroyed by capsuleers who rushed to the defense of Tanoo II and it led to some speculation as to what could possibly be going on behind the scenes at CCP Games, the developer behind EVE Online.
