Over the Great Wall

Over on Failheap, a few players have decided to do some internet spaceship tourism and head over to Serenity, the Chinese Eve server. While there’s a slight undercurrent of ‘beat up the natives with their primitive fittings and obsolete RRBS fleet techniques’, there’s also a joyous spirit of adventure and shared friendship. Also, free stuff.

Oh well, turns out Chinese Eve players aren’t so different after all.
The turnout has been so unexpected that a new sub-forum has been created to deal with the volume of threads, and to accommodate the cross-cultural exchanges as players from both servers talk smack at each other, make wild claims about life in their respective countries, and complain about how terrible Gallente ships are.

Failheap you never cease to amaze me. We go forth with the intention of trolling and mayhem and somehow end up with the beginnings of a wholesome cultural exchange.
