EVE online with Microsoft Excel

EVE Online gets official support for Microsoft Excel.

Fans have jokingly referred to EVE Online as a “spreadsheet simulator” for years, as many MMOs involve looking at spreadsheets. In 2020, the game even got a spreadsheet-only mode, making it easy to keep track of massive space battles even if your computer can’t handle rendering all those ships.

As part of today’s EVE Fanfest, developer CCP Games announced that a new JavaScript API will allow players to export spreadsheet data directly into Microsoft Excel; it will “help players access and calculate everything from profit margins to war strategy, making it easier to conduct the day-to-day operations of EVE.”

It’s an official partnership with Microsoft and the developers plan to share more details later this year.

Although it looks like a meme, the ad Strong crowd reaction at Fanfest. The PCC says Excel support is “another step towards the PCC’s goal of making MMOs more accessible to casual and veteran gamers.” The developers also plan to modernize EVE with audio and visual overhauls, as well as an improved user interface in the works.

EVE Online also receives a series of story events called arcs, which will provide years of dynamic stories to expand the game’s NPC empires.

“With arcs, we’re preparing EVE for the next chapter with a steady stream of narrative content that highlights player actions and decisions,” creative director Bergur Finnbogason said in a press release. “Veterans of the Triglavian invasion may remember the fall of Pochven, which changed the trade routes and supply chains of New Eden – the tales accompanying the arcs may have similar effects.”

With or without a spreadsheet, EVE Online’s Million Dollar Battles it’s legendary stuff, even if it doesn’t always live up to the bill.
