This is the last version of the Alternative Map, created by Ben Derindar. It showcases the claimed territories of the various Alliaces in EVE, as well as the ongoing Wars between them. The map was created from a screenshot of the ingame map, that was later altered in an image editing program to add highlights and labels. The creator relied upon ingame information, personal experience and player input to keep the map accurate overtime.
The Alternative Map was in a popular contest against the Alliance Map by Righteous Fury to continue the Territorial Map by Quarath. It followed a style similar to that of the original map, but ultimately, the Alliance Map won out.
