  • Your Year in EVE – Video Data

    7. January 2021 13:00


    The year in review video for EVE in 2020 has now been sent out to all eligible EVE Online players, allowing them to immortalize their achievements, activities, and victories in New Eden in 2020! For the first time, this video allowed players to select five categories in order to personalize their video to better reflect their chosen activities throughout the year.

    The criteria for receiving a video involved all non-deleted player characters needing to have been active between 1 December 2019 and 1 December 2020. They also needed to have an active Omega subscription to create the video. All data points were collected for these characters.

    Most data points have a percentile rank value attached to them which indicates a value‘s relative rank within a list of values. So, a “Top 10%” indicator means that the character in question has a value ranked in the top 10% of all character values for that data point.

    Here is a summary of what each statistic displayed in the videos represents, with all of them calculated for the period between 1 December 2019 and 1 December 2020:
