Torvald's 24 hour Proving Grounds marathon
Speaking of milestones we want to give a shoutout to EVE Partner and streamer Torvald Uruz who completed a gruelling 24 hour 1v1 Battlecruiser Proving Grounds marathon on the weekend, completing dozens of fights back to back and giving away billions worth of ships to viewers.
It was a mighty effort and you can check out Torvald's Twitch channel for future streams!
Oz takes over CCP TV
Many players will be familiar with Oz from his regular New Eden market streams on his Twitch channel or from his Trust, Trading and Trillions presentation at last year's Fanfest. Oz recently took over CCP's own Twitch channel to give viewers his informative take on the markets, the New Eden economy and to talk about ESI. Check out the VOD, it's full of great information on trading... and so many graphs! 👇
Jonny Pew returns
One of EVE's most prolific content creators has returned after a long hiatus. You might remember Jonny Pew from his Youtube channel or his appearance (as Sir Livingston) in the classic This is EVE trailer from 2014.
If you enjoyed his content you'll be pleased to know he's resumed regularly uploading videos to his Youtube channel and they're as good as ever. If you've found your way to New Eden recently and aren't familiar with his videos then check them out - you might find them informative!
