Blog banter 48

We Welcome to the continuing monthly EVE Blog Banters and our 48th edition! For more details about what the blog banters are visit the Blog Banter page. This month’s topic is a request from CCP Sisyphus who wants to know how important is Lore in EVE Online?
“How important is ‘fluff’ in Eve online? Would eve online be the same if it were purely numbers and mechanics, or are the fictional elements important to the enjoyment of the game? Would a pure text, no reference to sci-fi or fancy names, still be an engaging game? Should CCP put more or less emphasis on immersion?”
I felt the need to contribute to the blog banter this month, I have quite a passion for this subject as I'm sure almost every blogger will. ever notice how almost every blogger try's their hand at fan fiction at some point ( with differing levels of success)? the back story in eve is vague enough to write in almost any story you could imagine but detailed enough to provide a rice emersive environment, and the best part, its constantly growing changing and evolving ..due mainly to the players. One of my favourite parts of the "templar One " novel was where mordus is describing how he came by a wreck of a revelation after quite a well known null sec battle, the players are generating the fiction and the fiction inspires us to generate more! Taking away the fiction in eve wouldn’t really hurt the game play but it would be like having a colour TV for the last 20 years then going back to black and white. Dont take away our fluff!!!
