I’ve never played Eve Online past the trial period, but I do enjoy a good Eve story. So when I received an email from Anthony today, one of the enemy Eve players in the video, asking us to check out an Eve Online PvP video, I bit. I have to admit I wasn’t really expecting much, but was soon shocked by the quality and production value of this 40 min film, as this cannot simply be called a video.
While the film was released a few weeks ago and is the third in the series, the first two concentrated on battleship tactics and PvP battles with little storyline behind them. Rooks and Kings: Clarion Call 3 on the other hand is an epic story that spans more than a years time chronicling the conflict between two Eve Online corperations, the Rooks and Kings and AHARM.
No knowledge of Eve Online is needed to enjoy this film as the narrator breaks down the storyline and technical aspects for all. This is hands down the greatest machinima film I’ve ever seen and quick possibly the best machinima video ever made.
Now go grab some popcorn, get comfortable and get ready to enjoy of 40 mins epic Eve Online action. Big thanks to Anthony for sending this to us!
I can’t wait for the sequel :)
Despite everything said this year about Incarna, jita protests, monocles……… Eve pvp best pvp.
Don’t get me wrong, love Eve. But a years training and grinding ISK to find no one will fight unless they outnumber you?
And I’ve been on both sides, is no fun losing a 600m ship in a 6v1 battle.
Is limited fun clicking orbit/point/web/fire as one of 6 fighting the single player that probably logged off half way through feeling less inclined to be part of “humanity” when you rob him of a month of effort.
Best PVP remains DAOC. Hands Down.
