Greedy Goblin: Defeating Burn Jita

I don’t know if the last Burn Jita was last year or will be on this one, but I’m completely sure that there won’t be any in 2015. The Goons either realize that “destroying your game” is no longer funny or tolerated, or they will be remembered this year.
This post have …

Dev Post: Pirate Faction Cruisers

I’m back!
Getting to finally show you guys these is very exciting! I hope you understand the delay. The drone changes outlined in this Dev Blog had a big enough impact on the balance for pirate cruisers and battleships that we really wanted to wait on posting these. Thankfully, that’s …

How We Vote

One of the interesting things about the CSM election is the use of the Single Transferrable Vote system, which was introduced in the previous election cycle. As some of you may live in areas of the world where it isn’t commonly used, here is a quick primer.
In STV, instead of voting for a …

Battle Report: Bear poking and drive-by doomsdays

What started off as a regular Saturday night roam quickly erupted into a nice brawl as the fleets of C0ven and Nulli Secunda met around a Nulli tower in the Esoteria system of A1-AUH. In the hopes of poking Nulli for a fight the forty strong C0ven fleet set about reinforcing Nulli towers until …

Coalition Sovereignty Mapping

The Goal
The simple fact is there is no such thing as truly independent sov holder in todays null sec. Everyone, either by choice or by need, has a list of blues to help them. Looking at a map of alliance sov is outright impractical. Just like you can’t specifically target a corporation in an …

One Man Army: Kestrels

Since people complain that if someone has links they’re not technically solo. This edition is to change that. Since these videos are shorter (10 minutes or so each, I decided to feature two from the same pilot). Both videos are cheap t1 hulls, unlinked, no implants, no boosters. So people …

Dev Blog: The 49-U6U Slaughterhouse

In the early hours of 27 January 2014, a chain of events was set in motion that caused what is arguably the largest single player vs. player combat engagement in the history of online gaming.

A 21-hour-long engagement ensued, which became known as The Bloodbath of B-R5RB. This fight, along …

EVEOGANDA: Lotka-Volterra

The Lotka–Volterra equations, also known as the predator–prey equations, are a pair of first-order, non-linear, differential equations frequently used to describe the dynamics of biological systems in which two species interact, one as a predator and the other as prey.
I won’t bore you …

TweetFleet: Expansions

Today’s tweetfleet brings us a truly hilarious newbie question posted on the EVE reddit by user Crazy_Lee:
I’m three days old. What expansion/s should I install?

Watching the comment count soaring over 160+, the first thing that came to mind was this iconic scene of one of my favorite …

OverView: Rettic’s Sounds for Flying Series.

Overview is a new EN24 column where we spotlight community driven efforts to enrich other player’s EVE Online experience.
If there is one thing I seriously loath about EVE Online it is the choice of music that comes packaged. Yeah, I am aware of the shocking revelation that EVE having sounds …

Submission: Power Struggle

When you first started EVE Online you’d have found yourself in one of many Non Player Controlled (NPC) corporations most likely running missions. They often talk about the corporations having their own police force and being able to control vast amounts of space, for example the CBD …

Kirith Kodachi: Willful Ignorance

I’ve been listening to the interviews of CSM 9 candidates on Cap Stable podcast and got to the one for Sion Kumitomo, one of the CFC / Goonswarm candidates (with Mynnna being the other official candidate). Listening to his interview infuriated me.

In November of 2012 I wrote about the …

Greedy Goblin: The inverse effort/skill vs reward problem

This post and the following discussion helped me a lot to understand the “PvP-er” mentality, and also to understand a serious problem with the EVE learning curve, resulting the infamy of the game.
In the post Von Keigai told us his long and finally successful hunt for an Iteron V in …

Hoovering Their Way to PL

April Fool’s is a time for merriment and silly pranks. Usually, articles are posted and dismissed readily. So when members of the esteemed Pandemic Legion woke up to find a thread welcoming DYS0N to PL from noble diplomat JEFFRAIDER, many threw their doubts and concerns down to the date the …

Seraph IX Basarab: The Importance of Being Earnest

This is a departure from the usual type of article; but, I thought it was a unique enough perspective, rarely championed, that merited publishing. This comes in a time in which concerns over certain actions are legitimate game play or not. We’ve all heard the stories about the scammers, …

PSA: The fourth and final issue of EVE: True Stories is out.

Today, the fourth and final issue of EVE: True Stories is out. Thus concludes the epic saga of the downfall of Band of Brothers as told by Daniel Way, based on the not-so-objective account written by the Mittani.

This is a moment for reflection. It’s the first time that we at CCP have …

The Day After the Drone Changes: An Analysis

Following CCP Fozzie’s Dev Blog concerning the upcoming drone revamp, the wheels of theorycrafting and musings began afresh yesterday, with Alliances across New Eden creating threadnaughts and Eve personalities writing blogs on their views and opinions on what this will mean for the long term. …

PSA: On the matter of yesterday’s drone changes…

CCP Fozzie chose probably the worst day to release a high profile dev blog regarding drone changes, April 1st. In fact, many here at EN24 thought it was an very subtle April’s fool joke, but after careful revision we noticed it was indeed the real thing.
Today CCP Fozzie went into the …
