    Just as I did last year, I'll be liveblogging selected panels and events at Fanfest over on EN24. As always, my coverage will focus on panels relevant to nullsec (and for the most part is limited to 'shit I care about as an alliance leader, plus what the fuck is gonna happen with DUST and how worried should I be').

    While much is covered on EVE TV, they don't tend to broadcast the roundtables as much - and that's where the action is for us nullsec dudes. So my hope is to be able to take you where EVE TV can't, and provide the nullsec community with the issue-specific coverage it desires.

    Here's what I'm planning to cover:

    Fanfest 2012 Coverage Schedule


    THURSDAY
    16:00 - Fleet Warfare (This conflicts with the CSM Panel. CCP, I call bullshit on this one, CSM should be at this roundtable.)
    17:00 - 18:30 - DUST 514 Keynote
    19:00 - Catch me on the Alliance Leader Panel on EVE TV


    FRIDAY
    11:00 - DUST 514: Battlefield Roles (if I'm awake)
    12:00 - DUST 514: Seeding the Universe (likewise)
    13:00 - Nullsec
    18:00 - Orbital Warfare


    SATURDAY
    12:00 - DUST 514: Alliances
    14:00 - Ship Balancing
    15:00 - World of Darkness (call it morbid curiosity)
    16:00 - 18:00 - CCP Presents

    I don't know if we have a thread for general fanfest commentary, so I'll use this. Mods can break it our or something.

    I had actually looked forward to at least some of the bullet points on the http://fanfest.eveonline.com/en/events/evetvschedule but I just checked in right now and they still have the Ersatz StevieG so maybe I should just kill myself irl.

    Somewhat entertaining thus far. Lolard and I are watching on Test mumble and making snide comments.

    Fuck, I have to leave now, and was waiting for the DUST keynote. Please someone make a full recap so I can mull it over after real life is done for the day.

    I intended to liveblog the Fleet Warfare panel but it was standing room only and I couldn't type. tl;dr - The Fleet window is being revamped, they are considering ways to deal with the fact that we can't broadcast between fleets, titan-tracking is a hot-button issue, and people want command ships to be required to be on-grid to provide bonuses. I got a round of applause for suggesting that the command ship change would be a great idea, as it would force rorquals to siege in belts. :trollface:

    god dammit.

    The Links problem is obvious and can be dealt with more elegantly than that. The problem is that Links can be running safely inside a POS shield, and Links in general give too large a bonus. Making them "on-grid" only will discourage the small-gang/solo players utilizing a link ship, and encourage gate-camp blobs to just warp their link-alt onto the gate. This is not a good fix. Just adjust the bonus percentage so you don't get the absurd 30% better performance out of the ship, and of course no-longer allow them to project bonuses while inside a POS shield.

    For those of us without the stream, can someone contextualize this and why Grath is smugging.

    Dust looks better than expected.

    But better than cold spaghetti isn't saying much.

    The only reason why I would play dust going by what I've seen is because its free. But then I'm not that much into FPS games

    The stream also seems to die from time to time which is annoying as hell

    Wow. Tuned in for the past 5 mins. Looked like a bunch of half-drunk ugly people yelling into microphones at one another.

    That pretty much sums it up; it's most likely a lot more fun being part of it than being an observing bystander.

    Bolton just started yelling at the very end. It was like he was expecting every slide to be his last slide and wanted to go out with a bang, but they just kept on coming.

    Next year Mittens, next year, me, you, the bar, and somebody who we can pick out to be our topless dancer (Kesper will do just fine). You can help me weave my way through the finer parts of not being a loud over bearing american in a strange country.

    Lying here in the darkness
    I hear the sirens wail
    Somebody going to emergency
    Somebody's going to jail
    If you find somebody to love in this world
    You better hang on tooth and nail
    The wolf is always at the door

    Everything can change

    Things can get a little strange

    Well, fucking up on the sauce has happened to the best of us. But unless you did something properly nasty, it's what you do the morning after that really counts. Face the music, eat humble pie and learn your lesson.

    Keynote stuff:

    Redesigning POS's to make them scale able - 1-2 years

    Incursion like group pve mining, rewards moon minerals. Got a lot of applause, seemed like it might be an Inferno or winter expansion thing

    3rd party are getting expanded access to the API, able to read and write back to it. Adding in a new developer license, no weird restrictions and will be free.

    I still don't get how redesigning poses will claim the attention of the entire art department, like Stoffer said last night.
