Pokemon Go is an unprecedented success, but Nintendo recently admitted it won't directly profit from the augmented reality game, leading to a loss of $6.7 billion in Nintendo's market value on Monday. Nintendo's market value rose by $7.5 billion on July 11th, just after Pokemon Go went public and became an instant, massive hit across the globe. Since its launch, Pokemon Go has added nearly $12 billion to Nintendo's market value, meaning today's dip, while sizable, isn't a total disaster for the company.
If you're one of the millions of Pokémon Go addicts, you know that waking life carries a new, unrelenting question: what Pokémon are around me right now? The need to keep trying to catch them all has probably soured a few dates since the game launched three weeks ago, but fear not, amorous players: the PokeMatch app has arrived to set you up with the similarly poké-obsessed.
Here at CCP, we’ve been looking at many different ways to raise awareness of EVE Online and promote New Eden to a wider audience.
After the success we’ve seen over the course of the last couple of years with additional coverage of Fanfest and the amazing player gatherings that you all host, plus community focused marketing such as This is EVE, This is Fanfest and some of the amazing videos that have been put together by the community, we’d like to continue on the path of showcasing the creativity, ingenuity, diversity and dedication of our pilots.
In short, for our next campaign, we want YOU!
We’re looking for EVE players who want to take part in filming, where you’ll talk about your EVE experiences and stories. We’d like to hear more about your escapades over the years, and the shenanigans you’ve experienced as a part of what is by far the best and closest knit community in online gaming.
Those who want to take part may need to make an overnight stay in our filming locations, and of course any costs for travel and accommodation will of be covered by CCP for those who are selected to tell their stories, with a few in game goodies thrown in as a thank you for dedicating even more of your time to taking part.
At this time, we’re pretty flexible on the dates that we’ll be filming, so we’ll be looking to see what kind of suggestions for stories are submitted, and will arrange filming and locations with people on an individual basis.
If you’d like to take part in this project, here’s what we’ll need from you!
You’ll also need to include a brief “Video selfie”, no more than a few minutes where you can introduce yourself and talk about an EVE related story that has particular meaning to you, along with a little on how you’d describe EVE to a new player to encourage them to sign up and fly with you.
If you’d like to be considered to take part in this, we’ll need a submission from you before August 1st, 2016.
You can submit your details, along with your video by filling in this handy survey!
We're looking forward to hearing from you!
