Seraph IX Basarab: Black Legion… Best Legion…?

In my years as an Eve player I’ve enjoyed keeping up with Black Legion. Since Eve is such an “old game” no matter how many years I put between now and my start, I still consider myself “newer.” Rarely if ever is there a benefit to misinform others about your knowledge …

The Veldspar isn’t real

There is a common misconception among many players who play an MMO for free: that they are somehow needed for game mechanics to work. Good examples are the miner crying “we are making your ships” to gankers and those who “pay” for their EVE accounts by PLEX bought for ISK …

Jester’s Trek: Something in the air

Just a quickie.

Find the thing on this Blink page that makes me wonder what has gotten into the air-handlers at CCP headquarters.

Trebor Daehdoow designed a little CSM logo that shows the six stages of being a CSM member, starting from the 2 o’clock position and then going in a …

Something Happened on the Way to the Bookies

Today CCP announced that BLINK was appointed the task of doing a lottery. This is not just a lottery with normal prices. No this time the prices are Guardian-Vexors and Gold Magnates. These ships are special and were given out as prizes for tournaments. CCP and Somer BLink might be pleased but the …

EVE needs players, not accounts

I have 11 EVE accounts. I also “pay” for the account of my girlfriend. I placed apostrophes, because CCP saw $60 from me all together, making EVE my cheapest game. I subscribed for the game with my main account and then used a “pay for 3 months, get 6 months on a second …

Bob’s Corner: A Nomadic Lifestyle

My last alliances were all located in one 0.0 region or multiple regions that are located next to each other. These alliance all made their isk in their own regions that they lived in. this includes the pilots as well. This is fun but it also means that you are stuck in one place and you will have …

Check out this insane timelapse of Jita traffic on a single hour in

Battle Report: Tuesday Night Victory Lap – Erebus Down!

Rack up another Titan kill. This one apparently brought you to by a character named Wicked Princess who left left DooM and NCdot  over a year ago.
She apparently maintained an alt in the corp with POS rights much now to the dismay of NCdot and their titan pilot Kaira Ripley. It turns out an …

EVE Trading focused expansion

I believe EVE needs a trading-focused expansion. Why? Because in EVE, everyone is a trader. Of course most people are “traders” in the same sense as the Covetor-miner is participating in PvP. The previous expansions made several obscure or hard to handle features easier. Just consider …

Is It CCP’s Job To Protect Players From Other Players?

First of all, I’ve no problem with game mechanics that help protect players to some degree, such as Crimewatch and CONCORD and security status. Game mechanics are objective criteria and rules. They apply equally to all players, without prejudice. I’m also in favour of educating players …

Supers, Titans and Dreads.: NCDOT State of The Alliance

Here is the NCDOT SOTA, it happened yesterday and the most important bit of it is the fact that NCDOT will lose one corp Rionnag Alba (R A). They also welcome Evolution into NCDOT. Ohh did I mentioned they will be causing ruckus around Inmensea?
There is a call for fleet comps to be moved (mostly …

Shadow Cartel Nyx down in Dudreda

After successfully killing a titan detailed here, earlier in the day. One of the super pilots involved, Mr Bio, was not so lucky when it was used in a later engagement against Dead terrorists and friends.
Below is an account from Kurt Meyer explaining what went down.
The killmail can be found …

Shadow Cartel snipes a titan in Haine; Then loses a Nyx.

August 21st, at 11:20 eve time a Titan belonging to Tal Jerrico from the corp Retired P0rn Stars, died to Shadow Cartel shortly after downtime.

 
The story behind this titan death was that he was moving his titan towards downtime to be “safe” so to say. He moved his cyno alt into …

Dev Blog: Terms of Service History and Clarification

Greetings,

As many of you may be aware, CCP made some changes to the Terms of Service (ToS) last week. The purpose of the ToS update was not to change anything in regards to policy or how we handle cases involving impersonation. The purpose of the update was to pull bits of existing policy into …

Garth’s Trek: Assisted Suicide

And now an important message from Jester’s evil twin, Garth.  The opinions of Garth are not the opinions of Jester (unless they are).

Time to make some fuck-wits cry.
CCP Falcon is upset because EVE players are EVE players:

Customer Support has been made aware of the use of a specific …

Liquid ISK or PLEX?

It was suggested that I convert all my ISK into PLEX, in the event I do return to EVE someday. That’s not bad advice, since as the market history above shows, PLEX prices have steadily increased over time. Keeping my ISK liquid, it would simply lose value over time, whereas in PLEX (as in …

Dev Blog: Drone Exploit Warning!

Attention pilots!

Customer Support has been made aware of the use of a specific defect as a tactic in combat. The defect has to do with assigning drones to another pilot and then moving into the safety of a forcefield without having the drones deactivate or return to your dronebay.

Abusing …

Greedy Goblin: Alts and the ToS Change

The EVE blogs and forums are exploding with the new ToS “not”-change where impersonation of other players and organizations were banned – even if it’s true.
I’ve protected the ToS change and still do. But it needs clarification, explanation and maybe more changes. It clearly needs …
