EN24 sat down with Jin’taan to discuss his recent exit from Provibloc (read his leaving statement here), and the more general state of affairs concerning the conflict in Providence. Jin’taan is a well known and respected player, currently serving on the CSM, and was the lead FC for Provibloc for some years.

I was wondering, can you give a potted summary of your time in EVE?

I’ve been playing this game for a third of my life. But, sure, the general story is – Hisec -> Provi -> Razor -> Provi -> Love Squad -> WHs -> Provi -> TEST.

Provi seems to be a bit of a recurring theme here – was there anything that drew you back?

My corporation, Pentag Blade. And beyond that, I felt Providence was always one of the best places to learn in EVE.

So why do you think Providence was/is one of the best places to learn in EVE?

It was a place that always had content. Someone was always coming after you in Provi.

Do you think that its content heavy nature is likely to continue going forward, or is that as a concept somewhat dead now?

Probably, just not the content I personally find engaging. I don’t find hunting ratters fun. I left after finding out that the type of gameplay I enjoy (FCing large fleets/contesting strategic objectives) was no longer something likely to be a viable strat for Provi, as multiple alliances (MENTL/CF) were leaving alongside YF.

What are your thoughts on the NRDS [Not Red Don’t Shoot] set up in Providence?

I like the ideal of NRDS, but it’s not something I find differentiates Provi from anywhere else practically, outside of encouraging bueracracy[sic].

Was there ever a concerted attempt to improve Provibloc’s strategic capability?

No, and the lack of that is something I feel cost us a significant amount of equity in this conflict. Numbers were not a problem for us up until the very end when NC. got heavily involved. I tried to get stuff sorted on that front but there’s only so much one can do.

Do you think that said lack of strategic vision was linked to the reluctance of Provibloc leadership to permit actions outside Providence?

Not entirely sure there. Like I said in my leaving letter I don’t think the leadership is bad. They just have a different measurement of good to me. I was free to go do stuff where I wanted, but no-one in Provi was ever going to deploy, leadership or no.

On a related note, do you think that the separation of civil/military power in Providence is a good thing?

Not really. It encourages decision making which doesn’t work in this era – on both sides. Less reason to run defence fleets, as money making is someone else’s job. Less reason to want to make an economic structure to support your military. That sort of thing. Whilst the rest of EVE was using Rorqs, Provi couldn’t support them.

You mentioned in your leaving letter that this current conflict is somewhat linked to you personally – what happened?

I got in a pretty heated debate with Reza on the CZ podcast which hastened the deployment of WAFFLES (and later PL) to Provi in order to ‘punish’ me.

Do you think that Provibloc will exist in a recognisable form within the next 3 months, or will PL win a total victory?

I don’t think it’s possible to win total victory over Providence. That’s not IMO realistic. But PL can certainly sit on top of them until there’s very few left.


Legacy has been engaged fighting PL, but not in a very committed way. Do you think that that is likely to change?

No, though I wouldn’t want to talk for my new home, as I don’t know for certain.

Speaking of your new home, why/how did you decide on TEST?

I basically looked at the map for places to go. Wanted to be somewhere I’d have freedom to try new things, and other FCs to learn from, without immediately putting myself in the same position I was in Provi.

You are something of an EVE celebrity. Did that impact the TEST recruitment process in any way?

Outside of the exceptionally warm reception I received in TEST, not really. Though I do expect I’ll be allowed to FC sooner than most recruits.

  4. I’ve learned new things through your web site. One other thing I’d really like to say is that often newer pc operating systems often allow much more memory to get used, but they likewise demand more storage simply to perform. If one’s computer cannot handle extra memory along with the newest software requires that memory increase, it could be the time to shop for a new Laptop or computer. Thanks

  5. Some tips i have observed in terms of pc memory is there are technical specs such as SDRAM, DDR etc, that must fit the specifications of the mother board. If the personal computer’s motherboard is kind of current and there are no os issues, replacing the ram literally takes under 1 hour. It’s one of the easiest pc upgrade types of procedures one can visualize. Thanks for spreading your ideas.

  6. Great blog post. A few things i would like to make contributions about is that laptop or computer memory must be purchased in case your computer can’t cope with what you do along with it. One can deploy two good old ram boards with 1GB each, as an example, but not one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should look for the maker’s documentation for own PC to make certain what type of memory space is required.

  7. I have really learned result-oriented things through your website. One other thing I want to say is that often newer pc operating systems are likely to allow far more memory to use, but they likewise demand more storage simply to run. If your computer cannot handle a lot more memory as well as newest software requires that memory space increase, it might be the time to shop for a new Personal computer. Thanks

  8. Things i have seen in terms of laptop or computer memory is there are technical specs such as SDRAM, DDR or anything else, that must match up the specs of the mother board. If the personal computer’s motherboard is rather current while there are no main system issues, modernizing the memory space literally will take under a couple of hours. It’s among the list of easiest personal computer upgrade processes one can visualize. Thanks for discussing your ideas.

  27. One thing I want to say is that often before purchasing more pc memory, have a look at the machine in to which it can be installed. If the machine is definitely running Windows XP, for instance, the actual memory ceiling is 3.25GB. Applying a lot more than this would merely constitute just a waste. Make sure one’s mother board can handle the particular upgrade amount, as well. Good blog post.

  28. Thanks for the points you have contributed here. Something else I would like to convey is that laptop or computer memory demands generally rise along with other improvements in the technology. For instance, if new generations of cpus are made in the market, there’s usually an equivalent increase in the dimensions preferences of both personal computer memory as well as hard drive space. This is because the software operated by simply these processor chips will inevitably increase in power to leverage the new technologies.
