Greedy Goblin: Get Burned in Jita announced

Goons did not learn from the high losses last year and announced that on this weekend they will organize the third Burn Jita. I wrote already how can you turn this event into “got Burned in Jita”. This post is just a reminder and summary.
The first thing is to remember that despite …

Yesterday, Pandemic Legion (PL) nabbed themselves another Titan. This time the Ragnarok of FomkA.
eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=23030437

Titans and Supercapitals; powerful, expensive, and unable to dock. Every good pvper desires one of these (or several) on their killboard. PL are …

I Want Isk Exclusive Interview

Recently I got to sit down with I Want Isk and ask him a couple of questions about the EVE gambling site iwantisk.com that he created back in 2013
1.First, why don’t you tell us a little about yourself?
I am a coder full time. I dislike having bosses and as such I have coded things that I myself …

Open Thread: EVE Legion

So, today my internets are going wild with the apparent trademark registry of the EVE: Legion brand on behalf of CCP Games. All this, according to trademarkia.com, a site dedicated “To be the world’s largest and finest online legal technology platform empowering individuals, small …

Rage Rolling with No Holes Barred

For those of you less savvy to the wormhole world, Rage Rolling is a popular wormhole PvP operation designed to use the mechanics of limited mass to chain collapse wormholes and find targets. A fleet is formed up in the home alliance’s wormhole, chilling at POSes, or running PvE at home …

PLEX: The Final Word

In my original article, I laid the blame for increased demand for PLEX, and thus the rate of of inflation, at the feet of CCP. As if they had no good reason to keep adding new uses for PLEX. While I stick by the premise that CCP’s actions do indeed have a direct influence on demand, I screwed up …

Lowsec: Industry on Hard Mode

Industrialists are often looked down upon by the PVP oriented players in EVE. Those who mainly manufacture and trade are viewed as people who take little risk in-game. They are seen as safely riding the coattails of nullsec empires, or as people who exist isolated in highsec where they hardly …

Mabrick: Building Better Worlds for Whom?

I’ve been at Norwescon 37 all weekend, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t read the dev blog Building Better Worlds before I left. It doesn’t mean I haven’t thought about it constantly since last Monday. It doesn’t mean I haven’t read Jester’s initial post …

BRAVE pilots Experienced something new

Last Night or early in the morning depending where you live, Brave Newbies tackled a couple of drunk COW carriers.
Titans and Supers are often ships that people see and then go :sigh: However newer pilots such as brave newbies react different. Feel free to watch the video yourself and hear what …

Last night during US-TZ a Black legion Erebus fell in lowsec to the hands of Pandemic Legion.
Pandemic Legion had started to follow certain members of Black Legion in an attempt to catch them with their trousers down. It is unknown if this was one of their targets but we know at least that a PL …

Jester’s Trek: Traitor

29.7b ISK Freighter Down.

You’d think with the amount of times we post unfortunate freighter ganks on this site pilots would be wising up and realising that carrying nearly 30b ISK of cargo might not be as safe as you otherwise suspected, however this is not the case as demonstrated below.
With a 29.7b ISK loss (loot …

Seraph IX Basarab: Conflict in the New Polarized 0.0

While the CFC has been a prominent power in New Eden for several years, its future became uncertain during their “Civil War” as James315 calls it. That of course refers to the CFC’s conquest of Fountain, Delve, Period Basis and Querious from TEST Alliance and allies such as Tribal Band. That …

Breaking: All BRAVE API Keys leaked

Today capsuleer “Faceless Enemy” claimed in the EVE-O forums to be in possession of a list of all the Brave Newbies Pilots API.

The Good Stuff?

For the professional pvper drugs, (combat boosters) are not just an addiction, they are a way of life. Exile, Blue Pill, X-Instinct nestles in cargo beside ammo and nanite paste as stock standard supplies. Though, for the majority in EVE, it’s an area that is mysterious and unexplored. Why?
For 3 …

PLEX Prices, Economics and CCP’s Responsibility

A year ago, that is where PLEX were, which equates to an increase of 38.5% in the last 12 months. That is pretty close to the 39% we need to reach 1 billion. The question is not whether we will see 1 billion ISK for PLEX, but rather when. More importantly will be

Jester’s Trek: The lost gem

I’m coming up to my fourth Iceland trip in the last thirteen months. Each of these trips, my suitcase has come home progressively lighter on the return trip than the outgoing trip. That’s because each time, I’ve been bringing small and large gifts for people I know I’m going …

Dev Blog: Building better Worlds

One of EVE's strongest selling points always has been its player-centered industry; it creates lots of interesting gameplay around resource collection, distribution and transformation. This concept fuels not only the economy, but conflict as a whole. Since most assets can be lost, they acquire …
