Stainwagon vs N3 – Chimeras, Rattlesnakes and Dreads! Oh My!

Today, we, the Stainwagon, were in for a real treat! At 12:42 EVE Time, NC.’s i-Hub came out from reinforce in G2-INZ — not the usual USTZ timer one might expect in the region. To compensate, NC. called a full power CTA to save their precious i-Hub’s shields! To further secure …

Phoebe and Jump Freighters – Working as Intended?

With Phoebe a number of things changed, mostly to do with capital ships and the change that got the most attention was obviously jump fatigue and the fact that capitals can now jump through gates in low and nullsec.

Target Caller: Here a Clone, There a Clone…

This will be a short post.  On the o7 show, CCP announced the end of medical clone upgrade costs.  And, apparently, some people lost their minds.  Reddit has a few posts about it, and TheMittani.com has a feature article explaining why this change is a good thing.

Fight at U-QVWD – Battleship Graveyard

U-QVWD, a stationless border system between Curse and Catch, has been the site of much back-and-forth action between HERO Coalition and PL. The IHUB was put into armor reinforce on Wednesday to avoid a Friday night timer, and with no station this would be the final timer for U-Q. HERO Coalition …

Open thread: No more Clone grade… and no more skill-point losses.

I am opening this discussion here regarding the recent announcement on the EVE Online o7 show by CCP Terminus on the considered removal of Clone grades and the removal of Skill Point losses due to inferior clone podding.

Kirith Kodachi: The Measure of a Game

So the question for this blog banter is how can we tell if CCP is succeeding with their new bold road map that has started with Rubicon expansion and started to accelerate with Phoebe that was released this week.
Personally, I feel there is only one measure that matters to us the players and that …

Dev Post: Cynosural beacon activity leading up to Phoebe

Target Caller: The Great Mission Statement Challenge

A mission statement is nothing more than a summary of an organization’s vision. What are they trying to do? How do they go about it? What do they value? Since it’s written by the organization itself, it’s heavily idealized and subject to propaganda. Sometimes, the organization falls …
