EVE Online's war correspondents: player journalism as history

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    This chapter examines three news sites ? EveNews24, TheMittani.com and Crossing Zebras ? attendant upon the 12-year old Massively Multiplayer Online Game, EVE Online. It explores the role that EVE?s journalists and the historicising process of journalism play in constructing the game?s history, and considers the relationship between this journalism, fan practice and the game community. It concludes that EVE?s journalism does produce history, but that this is a history of and for an elite group of EVE players, arising from fandom of a particular approach to EVE play.
