Dabigredboat Banned From Eve?

Earlier this week in the battle of DY-P7Q, Dabigredboat could be heard giving orders on the his live stream to crash the node. Logs have recently come to light which show him ordering the fleet to attempt to crash the server by repeatedly logging on and off again.

Seraph IX Basarab – A modest proposal CCP: Bots for Christmas!

A very simple and basic thing occurred to me as a possible solution for the issue of bots. Before I get into it I’d like to start with a historical example themed for the season and hopefully that will help better explain my idea.
This isn’t an article for theological apologetics, but …

Wyvern dies to a Prober and two HICS

A wyvern died to the hands of Triumvirate members today. Mobius T’au and Casper24 spotted a lone Wyvern earlier this weekend and started to monitor his behavior. Keeping a close eye on the pilot they noticed that the Wyvern pilot had left his Wyvern and sold his character. So they went back …

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.
Why does illicit RMT exist? Because there are buyers with money. They want to bypass the obstacles, they want to progress even when they suck. Let’s face it: …

Jester’s Trek: Three approaches

I got lots and lots of really good comments on my tent-pole post last week, Overwhelming Force. And I was really pleased that a lot of you just GOT it. The post was necessarily a little bit subtle — well, as subtle as a post full of WWII references can be — but a lot of the comments …

DY-P7Q And The Aftermath

With the announcement of The CFC finally going into full deployment mode in their latest GSF CEO update, the stage was set for a fight between N3 and CFC/Stainwagon forces. DY-P7Q tonight lit up as numbers in local climbed up to nearly 1700+ with carriers, dreadnoughts, and titans alike bridging …

The Fast and the Furious: Syndicate Drift

(What follows is a refreshing “departure” from the regular “a titan got tackled and we cynoed in some friends to kill it off” sort of battle-report, we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.)
So this one cold winters night, 4 weeks after the initial planning phase. I was …

GSF CEO Update: Four Pages of Tears

If “grr goons!” was ever a thing then in The Mitanni’s most recent CEO update “grr Slowcats!” is most definitely a thing. Rarely has a CEO update provided so little in actual content and so much in complaining. The update does however provide two pieces of content for CFC pilots.
Full …

Today was not a good day for supercarrier producers in RUS blocks renter alliance Atrocitas. Sources inside Atrocitas have confirmed that the first CSAA contained a Nyx in production and the second contained a Hel. Both these CSAA’s were destroyed by N3 today.
The first CSAA came out of …

Goonswarm Station Aborted

In the early hours of Friday morning Goonswarm attempted to drop a station in 1P-WGB. N3PL and SniggWaffe pilots spent hours tracking a Goonswarm freighter moving through a number of titans in the Catch region. From the movements of the freighter they concluded a station was going to be dropped by …

Battle Report: Thursday Night Extravaganza

Yesterday night, SOLAR Fleet decided to kill a onlining POS that was placed on a R64 moon. This attempt went different than Solar had in mind…
Alliances often try and do a sneak attack while POSes are onlining. This is because the POS has no shields which means that you can use Fighter …

The EVE Advent Calendar

CCP decided that this year’s Christmas would have its very own advent calendar to count down till Christmas.
The past Christmas presents have been amazing . Last year was a great example: all EVE players got a festival launcher and snowballs making the eve community have multiple laughs well …

Hello my fellow pilots,
With the latest content patch, released last Tuesday, CCP brought us Twitch Broadcasting integration into the Eve Online client. As a YouTube video maker I was really looking forward to this feature, however, after trying it out I have some real game breaking issues with it …

Greedy Goblin: “Pay to save time” in games is nonsense

There is a common view that “good” microtransaction games allow players to just “skip the grind”. There are tons of pages about “time rich” vs “money rich” players. All nonsense. Why? Because games are selling the ability to spend time with something …

Jester’s Trek: Transparency

2013 has been a year full of controversies among the player base both small and large and I want to wrap up my commentary on a couple of them before the year ends. With that, let’s talk about EveCorpration1231533.
You see, a few months ago the CEO of Blackwater USA Inc. — a member corp …

Weekend War on Two Fronts

Western Front: The folly of Markus Dixon
Late Saturday evening a group of CFC Dominix fleets were busy moving back to their staging system in G-0 when Ncdot took notice and decided to drop them in KLMT with a smaller Proteus fleet. Another cyno went up on the grid seconds later as S2N brought in a …

X.I.X sides with N3 versus DTF; signs NIP with CFC

Recently, panties were in knots across New Eden as the Legion of xXDEATHXx began SBUing CFC space in Vale of the Silent in a seeming abandonment of their seeming amicable relations with the CFC despite a soft reset.
X.I.X siding with the N3 is altogether unsurprising given their undying hatred of …

Seraph IX Basarab: Might Be a Long War

The “Halloween War” began when AAA, Solar, Black Legion, Darkness and others joined into the third largest coalition. This was a move surprising to most although it seemed like the most logical conclusion to others. This prompted N3 to strike at AAA’s staging system of GE- and off …
