Seraph IX Basarab: Breaking the Stalemate in Fountain

We’re in a period of the Fountain War where no one’s really making a push “across the river.” Each side seems to have stabilized and seems content with burning the other’s structures. The longer the war goes on the more unstable each side can become. Grunts get burnt …

TAGN: Remember the Lazamo – Bloodbath at 3WE-KY

This morning there was some running around as a possible fleet action built up in Fountain. I got into game and into Lazerus Telraven’s fleet, which got left behind waiting on a titan while the other fleets moved out.
Then it was announced that we had a cyno in place and that our fleet …

J4LP and Null: Growing Pains?

[Note: Interviews took place outside of game, so I’ll be paraphrasing the responses of interviewees.]
Stumbling, Falling, Clucking
Whilst the war in the South is still burning brighter than the sun, there has been much debate about which side will end up on the wrong side of the ax and what …

Why Z9PP-H wasn’t exactly what CCP Games expected.

Yesterday’s node fiasco has truly caused an outcry within the EVE Online Community, I wish to point out yetanotherderp’s comment which seems to sum up pretty much what’s the word around the players I have talked to:
CCP got greedy. It’s no coincidence that they decided to …

The War in Fountain – The Z9PP-H Node Crash

Everybody should be aware that there was a big-ass battle today in Z9PP-H in Fountain. It was all over the Twitters and forums and such. It was a battle that kept escalating for nearly six hours, at one point reaching 2200 pilots in system.
I was made aware of the battle about 4 hours into it. I …

TEST And the CFC are duking it out in Fountain, here is the live

Dev Post: Skills getting a name remix…

After receiving feedback to improve certificates (uh? do people still use those?), CCP Ytterbium went on to the EVE-O forums and expanded on a new skill-naming scheme, here is the low-down:
Hello people,
As hinted there, we are in considering ways to revamp certificates and make player …

How would TEST finances look like if I manage them?

When Riverini of EN24 re-posted my article over reaching half trillion, he also added a comment: “TBH, I wonder if a guy like Gevlon or DannyCentauri would have been in charge of TEST finances how would they look like today…”. I’m glad I was bored and had some time swimming …

The money barrier

As you might have heard, this morning CCP announced that they had recruited Sean Decker, a former Electronic Arts Vice President, as their Senior Vice President of Product Development.  Most recently, Sean was the VP overseeing EA’s F2P gaming strategy.  He’s also a former …

Opinion: The Power of Propaganda

My apologies beforehand. This is an opinion piece. Take it as such. My views will always be bias as I am an N3 member.
Propaganda. What is it exactly? Posters? Videos? Spin? It’s all of these things. Manipulating the masses with visual, auditory and critical thinking. If it is to Demoralize, …

Fiddler’s Edge: Ebb and Flow

I write this from a hotel room overlooking the Bosperous. Istanbul, once Constantinople, lynchpin of empires and synonympous with international intrigue, seems an appropriate venue for holding forth on the current state of affairs in nullsec.
My apologies for such a long gap between posts. My …

Original press release
REYKJAVIK, ICELAND – July 2, 2013 – CCP Games, the world’s leading independent developer of massively multiplayer games, today announced it has hired Sean Decker as its new senior vice president of product development. Decker will lead the company’s worldwide game …

Ground Commander: Is Dust on track?

Leither Yiltron is a ground commander, planetary conquest coordinator, and a 2 year veteran of the Dust metagame. Check out his blog at hsandc.blogspot.com
For the moment, the short answer to the question, in the exact words and tone, is: no. It’s probably not for most of the reasons …

Dev Blog: A New Live Event for July

Attention capsuleers! Have you ever pointed your camera drones at some distant nebula or beautiful sight and thought “I should have studied photography at the Science and Trade Institute instead of becoming a pod pilot”? Well, if so, Team Illuminati has a new event coming up for you to …

A Ripple to a Tempest

Being in N3, I’ve had quite a bit of fun. From killing Solar to killing CFC Fleets. But these were nothing but ripples in the pond. Small to large engagements. Nothing more than Sov wars. Blowing ships up and pushing our blobs of color all over the influence map. If there is one thing …

Breaking: S2N Citizens drop all sov + Steals Wallet.

Word is on the street that a director in S2N Citizens just dropped all their sov in 9 regions, after being allegedly brought out by the CFC (this is unconfirmed).
I’ll post my RAW feed here and update as intel arrives:

s2n citizens just dropped all sov
word is goon spy burned stole all …

A 500 billion isk revenge? Surely You’re Joking

If you’re going to strip a director’s roles and lock him out of his possessions, be sure to know who all of his alts are.

So that’s the TL’DR there, apparently a coup happened in Surely You’re Joking alliance and one of the directors got his main sacked. Causality …

Let the Industrialist Decide What Role Her Hauler Will Have

CCP Rise has posted details about the latest thinking on industrial ship changes. I decided I’d have a closer look at what CCP is proposing as an industrial “balance.” What a mess. You can read them for yourself here.
Though I think it is intriguing they’ve split the Iteron …

Broken Allegiances: Gallente Faction Warfare

Drama is commonplace in EvE Online. One example of this is the recent spat that occurred in the Gallente Militia between a few alliances, notably Rainbow Dash Friends, Monkeys with Guns and Villore Accords, where internal war declarations have taken place and continue.
I was provided with the …

TAGN: EI-O0O Back in TEST Hands

After yesterday’s non-fight for the final timer in EI-O0O, it looks like TEST got their act (and their allies) together and managed to lay claim to the system yet again about 16 hours after losing it.

Which means that a special little corner of north Fountain is still being contested.
The …

Seraph IX Basarab: Analysis of The Mittani’s War Update

Having been afk for more or less 3 or so weeks has made my experience catching up on the 0.0 politics and wars akin to chugging a pint of bullshit espresso. It may be difficult to discern the different angles of propaganda. Both sides seem to be claiming their victories and claiming “turning …

Regarding exploits and SMA’s not dropping loot…

Structure bashing is a common occurrence during times of war. The sprawling wilds of Nullsec, huge fleets form up to smash stations, SBUs, TCUs, IHUBs, and POSes. These fleets range in size and composition from Cruisers, Battleships, Capital Ships and Supercarriers. The main factors for timing a …

Mabrick: Financial Hemorrhage or the Cost of Victory?

The war in Fountain continues. The current winner of that conflict depends on who you ask and what day you ask. It is a hotly contested war both in New Eden and around the blogosphere. With all the propaganda that gets thrown around, how’s a capsuleer supposed to know who’s on top?
You …
