Do capsuleers dream of Earth?

Do we capsuleers have dreams? Do we dream about eve, do we fantasize about how we envision EVE? I am sure we all do, and maybe I should make a series about it. But as of this writing, I can only pick my own brain. And yes I do dream about EVE Online. I admit that my in my dreams and fantasies about …

Evesterdam or not

New Capsuleers Welcome: Where Should You Go?

Preamble

CCP’s Missed Opportunity: Discord

Most games rely on a sense of community to maintain its health and stability. This is especially true for MMOs and even truer for Eve. The sandbox nature of the game compels players to develop relationships and those grow into communities.  Without community no game “stays fun” forever. …

Advising New Players – Are We Doing It Wrong?

For as long as capsuleers have flown in New Eden, newer pilots have asked those of us with more experience where to begin. For as long as I can remember, the answer has been to point them to one or more of the nullsec newbie-friendly groups because conventional wisdom has dictated that getting them …

To keep? The Keepstar?

This morning when I woke up, I noticed that Lazerhawks was unanchoring their keepstars. For those unfamiliar with recent events, yes this is a big deal. Hard Knocks a wormhole group just like Lazerhawks came under siege by The Initiative and Goonswarm Federation. The objective of this siege was to …

Finding Purpose in Eve Online

I am fairly new to writing. And sadly this will show in my pieces.                                         
The hope I hold is that I become better with time. However, this is no guarantee. I only recently took up writing because of my passion for EVE. I have …

Liars and Propagandists on Co2 Disbanding

Circle-of-Two continues being the obsessive topic of Goonswarm propaganda. To a certain extent I understand why. Without Co2 refusing to follow the rest of the Imperium to their lowsec retreat, WWB’s ability to counter-attack and retake the north during 2016’s WWB was impossible. The entire …

Theory Lab: Neuting Archon

Prior to the fighter changes the Archon was the go-to carrier of any serious capital engagement. They were both the Triage backbone and a respectable damage platform. Thannys were begrudgingly accepted on fleets, Niddys had their smaller fleet roles and somewhere in all of that there were also …

Memories of a better time

Why do people look back? Why do people think the past was better than the present.
Eve players in general always seem to look back through rose tinted glasses. But why do we do it? That question activated me profoundly. It spurred me into writing a piece, this piece about eve online and eve online …

Botting is the automation of a particular activity in EVE, so the player does not have to do it themselves. It is a bannable offense and …

The Inevitable Fall of Fort Knocks

J115405, better known as Rage, is a system in wormhole space which has been home to the Hard Knocks (HKRAB) alliance for more than half a decade. J115405 is — by all standard metrics — an unremarkable system, a class 5 wormhole with class 5 static like two-hundred-and-forty others; but …

For The Horde: (Some of) CO2 Joins Pandemic Horde

Around a week ago, gigx and Da Winci delivered an emotional message to the members of Circle-Of-Two: the alliance didn’t have a future. A lot of time in the address was focused on the difficulties they’d faced trying to find a new home either for the alliance or for the corporations …

Hunting Content and Solutions

What if I told you many alliance leaders and fleet commanders are not very good at getting meaningful content? It’s not entirely their fault. The continued softening of Eve in an attempt to have a broader appeal is not helping. However they do still play a large role in poorly approaching the …
