Submissions: Three Years (I hope I’m wrong)

I will preempt this post saying you NEED some tinfoil on your head to read this but also maybe just maybe you don’t.
What would you think if I said CCP Games will be no more in 3 years? Would you call me a madman, crazy, theory crafting loon?
I hope I am proven wrong but I want to explain why I …

Jester’s Trek: How do you stop

A reader challenged me to a really interesting mental exercise this week that I’ve decided to take up. It’s going to get me yelled at and cause yet more misconceptions about me but hey, I can’t seem to say “hello” this year without causing that. So what the hell, eh? …

Seraph IX Basarab: Renting in New Eden

Renting is a part of 0.0 living that few people seem to really understand. It has been described as “space feudalism” with a touch of criticism to say the least. The Goons referred to Band of Brothers as an “evil empire” for doing exactly that. It was so until they saw that …

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 …

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 …

Last night during US-TZ a Black legion Erebus fell in lowsec to the hands of Pandemic Legion.
