Description

Empires of EVE: A History of the Great Wars of EVE Online is the incredible true story of the dictators and governments that have risen to power within the real virtual world of EVE Online.

Since 2003, this sci-fi virtual world has been ruled by player-led governments commanding tens of thousands of real people. The conflict and struggle for power between these diverse governments has led to wars, espionage, and battles fought by thousands of people from nations all over the world. There have been climactic last stands, wars for honor and revenge, and spies who caused more damage than a fleet of warships.

Empires of EVE is the history of how political ideas first began to take hold in EVE Online, how that led to the creation of the first governments and political icons, and how those governments eventually collapsed into a state of total war from 2007-2009.

The best book about the best game, worth playngEVE

Play EVE Online, i was there in 2014 at the fall of INK alliance when we migrated tonthe Drone Lands, i was there when Goonfleet destroyed in straight warfare Nulli Secunda. I took part in the 2016 MoneyBadger Coalition to evict Goon out of nullsec as a revange for Nulli Secunda. EVE is what you make of it. Needs a second volume

The most entertaining history you will ever read

This book makes WW1 and WW2 seem extremely boring in comparison. It also illuminates human nature in a more pure way than any history book as it is more accurate than real history could afford to be.

Another amazing job.

I already own the hardcover book and I was a apart of some of these wars and the times they happened in, but I wanted to hear Andrew tell the story again.

Not. Disappointed.

Andrew is a storyteller, both written and when reading it up like this and you can feel his excitement about the content in this audio book. On four separate occasions that I remember off the top of my head I found myself with goosebumps all over my body and shivers running through it. Cochises "All appropriate emotions were applied. We hated them" I had to register to four times before managing to move on.

Brilliant. Thank you.

Loved it!

I really enjoyed this, and I am looking forward to Part II of this virtual space epic. I suggest looking up a starmap of EVE Online on Google to help follow what's going on, especially if you haven't played EVE.

great performance for a great work

the author does a great job adapting his work to audio. focuses largely on nullsec wars and power struggles among player owned corporations through 2010. engaging throughout as a non fiction war novel with particular attention given to the real world players that influenced these events.

From Someone that has not played EVE Online

This book is absolutely fascinating and captivating. This reads like a history book, with the important events highly detailed in a way that allows even non-players to understand and appreciate what’s going on. I can’t recommend this book enough if you enjoy history in general, or find online communities an interesting subject.

a great story for newcomers, to learn of what came

This was a great catalogue of history. Just getting into Eve it's been helpful to listen and learn what came before while I learn the game. Narration is spot on and quotes from leaders of the factions are pretty neat. Andrew's knowledge of the evolution of EVE really helps paint the picture. Please continue on!

a history that should be glorified

being an Eve online player, and starting in 2014 it's great to Nova source about some great events, great betrayals and some of the best player interactions in all of gaming (that I know of)

The facts of war are dense, the editing is not

As someone newish to Eve I found the historical retelling of the great wars of Eve fascinating. However, chapter by chapter it too often bleeds together. Goonswam, Red Alliance & Band of Brothers are without a doubt extremely influential but little outside of those alliances are covered...for 18 chapters no less!

cant wait for the next part

even If the speaker Skill is not on the same level as other professionals. He makes that Up with passion for his Work. while the Game might be not for everyone. the Stories of betrayel, Community and Epic Battles can inspire and i really Look Forward to the next Part.

Great, but sometimes boring

Great concept with great execution, although it can be a bit lengthy at times. A little less details on some parts would have sufficed. I would rather have had the story reach the present than know every single detail about every single battle/empire. I hope there will be a part two that covers the time from 2009 until today.
