Seraph IX Basarab: Elo Knight Interviewed.

I sat down this evening with Black Legion’s Elo Knight, arguably the single most famous FC in 0.0. I expected quite a few things from speaking with the man and what I found was someone of few words, humble of his capabilities and hopeful of his future. We spoke almost an hour while he was …

Mabrick: Take Your Time. I’ll Wait.

CCP Pokethulhu had an interview this week with VG 24/7. Nosey Gamer mentioned it here. That led me to Neville Smit’s post about it on his blog. Now that was a post well worth reading three times, so I did. I’ll probably read it again.
There is not much I disagree with in the post by …

Battle Report: E-YJ8G

Things heated up in E-YJ8G as a Pandemic Legion slowcat fleet got tackled in the system. Several hundred Domi’s and Tengu’s poured in system in an attempt to kill the carriers. NCdot formed a slowcat fleet of their own to respond to the threat and combined fleets with PL. This put over …

Seraph IX Basarab: The Ragevengeance of Mittani

Glimpse Of The Mits
I’ve never spoken to The Mittani online or in person and I doubt the guy has much of an idea I exit let alone who I am and what I do. That’s not to say he should, in all honesty as far as Eve goes I don’t consider myself much of a blip on the radar. I’ve …

Seraph IX Basarab: Winning the War in the South, N3 Edition
