Eve Echoes is the Mobile Version port of the 2005 Space Sandbox MMO Eve Online that predominately put GOONS on the map of online gaming. Wanting to continue with the vigor that is GOONFLEET in Eve Online, we would like to re-activate the GOONaganda machine to really rustle the masses who have quit, forgot about, or better yet promised they would never play it again! With the failed outcome of SG and its scattered hives of bees, there is an extraordinary opportunity and a lot of lost GOONS out there in space that could use a pick me up!

30 days ETA until the release of Eve Echoes: The Mobile Eve Online

(Paraphrased from Inimicul) If you don't know what EVE Online is, you're probably too pure for these forums. Flee now. Save your sanity and soul. However, if you get aroused at the thought of non-consensual space ship PVP on your cell phone while you're at work, taking a poo poo, or ignoring your family, then this is good news for you. CCP has licensed the EVE IP to NetEase Games to make a mobile port based on the EVE Online universe. This will be a pretty close copy of PC EVE but some changes made to be more mobile-friendly. Mostly, a complete rework of the UI. Echoes will have the same map as EVE Online but the two games are separate. Characters and assets don't carry over from one game to the other. This will be a fresh start. Hell, I don't even think the market will be seeded. Those who went through the Beta tests say it really captured the spirit and felt just like playing EVE Online on the PC.


Join us in Discord to strategize, plan and fully lay out our plans for Eve Echoes' upcoming launch. Help us get a handle on organization and numbers on those who intend on participating.



There will be one server for the whole world so expect a lot of chinese. If you played Second Galaxy you will know this can make things very interesting.
The UI has been streamlined a metric fuckton to make it playable on mobile devices. More tweaks are to be expected so it's only going to get better.

FAQ!
Q: How big will corporations be in Echoes?
A: 500, 10+ corps in alliances, added coalitions.

Q: Will my 5 year old tablet run this game?
A: There is a chart of officially supported CPUs and minimum specs linked below. As they do more optimizations, it's getting better and better. It's already dropped from 4GB of RAM to 2GB and the list of supported CPUs has exploded. Look up the specs on your phone (google that poo poo, you heathen) and see what CPU it has. Look on the below list. If it's there, you're golden. If not, eh... Cross your fingers or throw your wallet at the problem.


Q: How many accounts can I have?
A: You can register with your Google or iCloud accounts, Facebook, or email addresses. Can you guess which is going to be more secure?

Q: Can I run this on my computer?
A: NOX, Memu, Bluestacks - They work, in that preferred order of quality.

Q: How does this differ from Second Galaxy?
A: SG and NetEase are both Chinese developers and apparently have been bitter rivals for some time. SG did beat them to market with a playable mobile space ship MMO but so far not a day has gone by where they've need to do some kind of emergency maintenance to fix a bug that has turned up. Usually in a very high profile sovereignty war.

Q: Is Echoes going to be P2W?
A: No, pay to skill train faster.

Q: Can I fly a titan?
A: Supercaps aren't in the game yet. They've said they're going up to tech 10 this round. Besides, the test probably won't last long enough for people to train up to and build one anyway. Right now, battleships are as big as it goes.

Q: You didn't answer my question earlier about the differences between Second Galaxy and Eve Echoes!
A: (Sigh) You're right. There are too many unknown game mechanics just yet. I'll just add random observations below:
I can confirm that Echoes will not have Recruits or Wingmen as SG does.
Echoes won't have directional scanning. Neither does SG but I wanted to add it here.
Echoes use the same skill training plan that EVE does. You have a 24-hour queue you can dump as much info as you want and any skills that take longer just keep going. I currently have a 5 day skill sticking out the back of my training window so I'm good for almost a week. I just toss smaller skills in front of it as I decide to. You can rearrange them on the fly and progress made just pauses. You only need ISK and time.
SG uses some terrible combination of time and resources where you can spend days not training anything at all if you hate mining and are in a lovely high sec corp.

We are looking to fill the ranks with GOONS who desire a comeback, or a fresh start. Perhaps you desire the opportunity to pioneer deep space in the palm of your hand? Whatever the reason be, it is time to join the Swarm once again to blob our enemies to death while choking our data plans and overheating our radiated cellular devices.

Nah, it's going to be all about ratting in EE, at least to start with. Plus, being a mobile game there is auto attack (which honestly EO really ought to have itself with how engaging it is) so multiboxing your phone, your tablet, your old phone, the tablet you bought for your kid and just stole back, ect should be quite dooable really.

This one is an Eve Online port. It is like Eve in your hand, while you poo poo. Its great, give it a go on launch, you hate it, delete and never look at it again.

Still not quite getting this concept.

Eve was always leave your stupid computer on for stupid long hours doing dumb poo poo with voice chat on in the background waiting for something interesting to happen.

Alternatively spending hours moving some stupid pile of poo poo a stupid pile of jumps with scouts ect to not get ganked.

How exactly does that translate to playing for 10 minutes while i'm making a stupid pile of poo poo at work?

There are a couple reasons why someone might play this over regular Eve: Online.

1. It's a fresh start and a new universe, without the baggage or issues of an established universe that has been through dozens of exploits where individuals we able to attain infinite wealth.

2. It's mobile, and there are things you can do in a 10 minute timespan to progress.

3. It's likely to be far more casual, so if you weren't space important in EO you can fake it till you make it and trick a bunch of pubbies into following you, at least for a little bit.
