Eve Online Recall Program announced, gives free game time to absent players

Friday, 4th April 2014 09:23 GMT By Dave Cook

Eve Online developer CCP Games has unveiled its new Recall Program, which looks to get absent players back into the game. I’d make a Total Recall joke because the game’s set in space, but it’d likely be shit.

The Eve Online: Recall Program was announced over on the CCP blog, which will allow players to gift seven days of free game time to their friends in exchange for rewards. It is hope that the incentive will get absent players back into the fold.

Inviting members can only claim rewards three times in a month, but it sounds like it could be a decent scheme to get people back.

Said CCP, “It is our ongoing mission to reduce the barriers for players joining – and rejoining – Eve Online so you can continue creating more unforgettable experiences together.”

The rewards in question range from items of player clothing, to free PLEX and even a cosmetic ship skin blueprint copy for the Mackinaw Exhumer – The Mackinaw ORE Development edition

    I admire your restraint, Dave. Nothing to say on the article, but it’s nice to see someone who’s able to show restraint when they know they can’t be humorous. I’ve seen too many sites trying to force that, attempting to be continually hip and funny, and the result can be somewhat grating. It can also frequently be insulting and/or offensive, since they’re trying more to be funny than thinking about the kinds of jokes they’re making. Basically, it’s an attempt to be extroverted over the Internet, I guess.

    I’m not a fan of that, to me, it just gets in the way of reading the news, since often a person isn’t insightful enough to actually make a joke funny enough to be worth interrupting the news for. I know the VG24/7 ladies and gents are prone to being sassy every now and then, which you are also being in this article by being self-deprecating, but I don’t mind that. You can be sassy whilst reporting the news, but trying to be funny whilst doing it means you waste two paragraphs on trying to be funny before actually, finally getting there.

    And it all feels very self-congratulatory when they do that, like they can treat you that way because they feel that they’re the best, and you’re not just going to go and read another news site to get away from it. I could really name names, here. There’s one site in particular that’s absolutely awful about that, forcing jokes that last for paragraphs before getting to the point, and often using headlines which are either trolling clickbait, or unclear as to what the article is supposed to be about. In that respect, I think you guys have a lot of integrity.

    That’s why I like coming to VG24/7.

    I can just read the news. Sometimes it’s sassy and opinionated, and I’m okay with that, I even like that. But what you don’t do is try to lead anyone into thinking a certain way, or try to let your opinions cloud the facts. I respect that. I don’t actually think you’re appreciated enough for that. Most notable was your coverage of Elder Scrolls Online, where you all had very different opinions of it ranging from positive to negative, and none of those opinions were pushed out. Nor did you try to obfuscate some opinions in favour of others.

    There’s no politics.

    I think that’s what I’m trying to say. :I Usually people who’re trying to be funny like that are also trying to be incredibly political. It’s weird. I’m having trouble actually putting this into words.
