Eve has instances....

They are called "Stations"...

Is it really an instance if you're still in local with everybody else?

Bryan Ward said...

lol. those are some big instances.

Casiella said...

Did you mean "epiphany"?

paritybit said...

Dammit, I was going to point that out and then I thought that I shouldn't be rude.

Helpful hint: Use Firefox, it's got a built-in spell checker ...

@Casiella and paritybit, thanks for the catch - indeed but it doesn't seem to work on the title...

Are not the solar systems different "instances" you have to load when moving between them. They are completely independent of each other. In fact I think busy solar systems have there own server.

Letrange said...

What distinguishes an instantce from a zone is the ability to have other players come into it. if someone is in a system, they do not have exclusive access to it. When you're in a station you have exclusive access to your stuff.

Let's say star systems (not solar). And I think you could argue that they are zones. Or open instances.

Letrange said...

oh zones for sure - most of em spawn mobs or sites and anyone can go and take em out first come first served.
