Fanfest 2013: April 25 - 27, 2013
Announcements. I expect a lot of information and features to be released during Fanfest.
"A huge amount of detail coming from Fanfest then." - CCP on Video 4:10

EVE Fanfest 2013: EVE Keynote Along with the keynote all of the other Fanfest videos are up on youtube you can find them here.

EVE Universe: Origins  < New trailer doesn't really have anything to do with Odyssey though.

Features and Ideas Discussion lots of features and changes don't make it into the devblogs check them out here. Forum links listed here in no real order:

[Odyssey] Small Navy Cap Boosters CCP Fozzie states this is the last of the changes for Odyssey 1.0 I assume.
[Odyssey] X-L Weapons Balance
[Odyssey] Clone Costs Clone Costs are being lowered by 30% can't argue with that.
[Odyssey] Navy Battleships Posted: 5/13/2013
[Odyssey] Tech 1 Battleships - Build Costs It is beyond me why they let this sort of stuff just slip into the forums. I guess they don't want mass hysteria as everyone slams the market buying up battleships. I am sure by now the price has already adjusted. So if your wondering why your paying 40 million more for your little T1 Battleship this is why. So if you thought the ore changes were going to drop prices in the mineral market think twice before dumping your stocks or speculating on that shift.

Sensor overlay changes in EVE Odyssey
Odyssey Ship Balancing
U and I made some changes: Odyssey UI changes A few consolidations of right click menus and a few other chat changes.
Probe Scanning and other Goodies for Odyssey A great list of changes coming to exploration and a few other things explained.
Reinventing the Radial Menu for Odyssey
Dual Character Training Wow, this is an excellent feature that I think will only increase the ability for this game to reach out to more players. I don't think we can even see how far reaching the effects of this change will be for isk, PLEX, and players.
Hacking in Odyssey  "This first release of changes to Hacking and Archaeology are just the tip of the iceberg. In the future we hope to add in much more variety into the subsystems you encounter whilst hacking." - CCP Bayesian
WantToTrade: Tags for Security Status The complete run down on the new system for gaining security status from -10 to 0, as explained during CCP MasterPlan's Fanfest presentation.
Resource Rebalancing in Odyssey: Numbers!
Resource Shakeup in Odyssey: Just don’t call it a Cataclysm Reading through these changes nothing strikes me as an oh snap I am going to invest/change what I am doing. I guess there will be even more ore so prices will go down? I guess the scanner could be cool. This whole devblog seems like a piece to a puzzle that we haven't quit seen the whole thing.
Odyssey Summer Expansion Starbase Iterations
In the Navy: Changes to Navy Ships in Odyssey
The Great Ship Skill Changes of Summer 2013 "All of this will happen for the Summer 2013 expansion." Which we now know is Odyssey. This Devblog has the most far reaching effects for me in-game and you would do well to sit down and take a hard look at all the skill changes being made. For new players the skill change for industrial ships will go a long way towards letting you fly around with a little more cargo. Also note if you could fly it before you can still fly it after the expansion goes live.
