Open Letter to CCP Regarding Blackout

***(Definition of Krab: Someone whose main gameplay style is focused on ratting and mining. Their “PvP experience” is mostly orbiting an FC in a massive fleet and pressing F1. Their goal is to ensure they are as safe as possible in nullsec. Not to be confused with industrialist or other people …

It’s Happening: 48 Hour Warning – Nullsec Local Blackout

As announced on July 5th, in 48 hours, at downtime on Friday, July 12, local chat across all nullsec space will be switched over to delayed mode. This means that it will behave as local chat in wormhole space, with pilots only appearing in the local population listing should they choose to post …

Dev Blog: Nullsec Local Chat Blackout coming to An EVE Near you.

Lina Ambre reports as the SCC announces that its Fluid Router network is under threat and that Capsuleers should prepare for an inevitable communication blackout across Nullsec. The Drifters also seem to have ramped up their attacks, targeting more than just structures, adding to growing

Planting the Interstellar Grove: Training Pilots for NRDS Nullsec, from Scratch to Academy

Lesson Two: Best Practices
This term is usually loathed when it’s used as business-world jargon, but I happen to believe rather strongly in the idea of “best practices” if it’s meant in good faith. The principle is bone-simple, and in our case works like this: roll an alpha …

Reformation Through Drifter Event

CCP’s done something interesting with the “Drifter Siege of nullsec structures.” Hopefully CCP can understand why they are so popular. For years now structures have been far too spammable and tedious to remove which in turn has put a damper on other’s willingness to engage in prolonged war. …

Eight Principles for the Betterment of Eve

A week ago, I was decisively elected CSM.
I ran a campaign grounded my Eve background and balance ideas. In my CSM bid I had more concrete ideas than any other campaign this year. But even in that document, I admit that CSM members seldom get their concrete ideas inside the game; this is …

The Cosmopewlitan: Goons & Co. kills yet another undefended Keepstar in Vale – An Analysis.

In what seems to be the monotonous theme of the “Next Great Northern War,” Goonswarm Federation and its allies destroyed another undefended Keepstar citadel in the north; this time in the P3EN-E solar system of the Vale of the Silent region.

It was a no show for the Pandemic Legion / …

Goonswarm Federation led forces kill another two more undefended Keepstars in the North

Goonswarm Federation led forces killed another two undefended Keepstar citadels in the last wake of structure bashing in the Tribute region. The 0-YMBJ and M-OEE8 keepstars fell to the tune of 1500 enemy pilots. The kills are the latest on a long string of undefended structures killed by the …

Planting the Interstellar Grove: Training Pilots for NRDS Nullsec, from Scratch to Academy

Lesson One: Seeding the Ground
My career in EVE seems defined by inheriting leadership positions: my very first corp was run by people who looted all the assets (right during Christm- uh, Yoiul, even!), quit to form a troll squad, and then left the game entirely. I took over as CEO, ploughed ISK …

Matterall: Talking in Circles

I never really have high expectations for the CSM in part due to bloc voting. With rare exceptions the CSM seems to be ineffective at best. At worst, they are tools for the big political blocs to push ideas that favor their gameplay style or a way to leak information. You have to be pretty naïve …

Breaking News: Skill urself to Disband

Skill urself (INGME) burst onto the scene a couple of years ago; a supercapital-heavy, aggressive, and highly selective alliance which refused to be constrained by the blue donut mentality of nullsec. They could easily have negotiated their way into holding sovereignty, but instead elected for an …

INN Propaganda Analysis of “Imperium vs PanFam”

As usual with the flare up of war we see an increase in propaganda. Some of it is fun and done in an endearing spirit mixing playful natured banter with art. We’re going to be taking a look at the other side of war propaganda: an analysis of try hard misinformation propaganda that is designed not …

Interview with CSM Candidate Anveri Vestigo

With the CSM elections coming up we have a number of candidates each with their own ideas and proposals for Eve. Many are concerned with the direction Eve has been going in while others simply advise for minimal tweaking. In the hopes of giving some non-nullsec bloc candidates a voice, EN24 …

The Imperium Takes a Bruising at The Battle of WH-JCA

Disclaimer: I am a member of Sniggerdly, in Pandemic Legion. Whilst I’ve made best efforts to keep this article as neutral and fact-based as possible, like speaking to friends in The Imperium to get their side of what happened; the opinions I am surrounded with are those of my own alliance, …

In Defense of Elitism: The Narrative Against Panfam

If the word “elite” conjures up a visceral disgust in your stomach, or an image of a schoolyard bully shaking down a weaker child for his lunch money, you are not alone. Since the time of Band of Brothers, “elite” has been a dirty word in the everyday vernacular of some …

A Sorry Tribute: War in the Post-War Galaxy

The “invasion” of Tribute begins, or so we are told. It’s not really an invasion, of course; the attackers have no interest in taking or holding the space, though much of it was taken from The Imperium during World War Bee in the summer of 2016.
What’s it about?
The war has …
