DUST Mercs: Why the Weapons Lab & Trainers are Critical

Its past time CCP added the weapons lab and virtual trainers into New Eden for Dust mercenaries.

Greedy Goblin: Ending RMT, rewarding PvE and doing good

My last post about RMT wasn’t general enough, therefore was unable to reach its goal. Now I’m back with a broader approach.
