In what is hopefully the first of many community-sourced summaries, A Scientist’s Life in EVE has bravely taken on the job of reading through every entry, weighing up the thoughts of all contributors and putting together a cohesive summary of the entire banter.

The question asked in Blog Banter 36: The Expansion of EVE, was as follows:

“With the Inferno expansion upon us, new seeds have been planted in the ongoing evolution of EVE Online. With every expansion comes new trials and challenges, game-changing mechanics and fresh ideas. After nine years and seventeen expansions, EVE has grown far more than most other MMOGs can hope for. Which expansions have brought the highs and lows, which have been the best and the worst for EVE Online?”

Widely predicted to evoke a unanimous answer from all contributors, which expansions actually proved the most popular and most reviled? How did our banterers arrive at their conclusions?
