One Shots Massively staff pick week continues, and Brendan Drain -- our resident EVE Online fanatic -- is up to bat:
This isn't just a nicely composed picture looking down an Archon class carrier; there's actually a fantastic story behind this screenshot. It was recovered from a stranded nomadic wormhole fleet that wandered into our hidden home system. I wrote up the cutthroat tale of how we "recovered" the ship for an edition of my EVE Evolved column back in 2009. I don't want to spoil the story, but to give you an idea of how things kicked off, I can say we named the plan "Operation Bastard."Keep your eyes on One Shots all week to see what the Massively staff loves playing and showing off. Next week's theme is all about gear. It'll be your chance to show off your most epic armor and weapons and tell us all about how you acquired them! The week after that is pet week, and we can't wait to see your awesome pet companions and hear all about them. Just send a screenshot to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your name, the name of the game, and a paragraph or two telling us about what we're seeing!
