Greedy Goblin: Masters, servants and minions…

There is a big confusion between who has power over who. The main reason for that is mixing people with groups. Groups make no decisions, people do. If there is democratic vote, everyone has 1/N power. If there is dictatorship, the dictator has power, the followers do not. However – unlike in …

Conflict Drivers: The horns of the Null-Sec Dilemma.

The 0.0 dilemma, we have all read about it. Eve is dying, the big blue donut, coalitions destroying the game. Before I begin to dive into my idea to spark not only the content machine but a fundemental paradigm shift in 0.0. Lets examine what we agree and disagree about.
What we agree on

OverView: Crius Main Theme Released.

The EVE Online Crius expansion is nearly upon us, and as the release date nears we get more bits of content, now we get to hear the theme music for the Crius expansion.

Kirith Kodachi: Lifeline

So earlier this week as part of the Blog Banter I claimed that EVE and its community does not help enough new players for finding their way in this complex universe. Now let me lay out the broad strokes of what I think needs to occur to improve the

Jumping into the SOV , Power Projection & Nullsec Stagnation Discussion

After reading Manfred Sideous discussion post (EVE-O forum link) I decided to jump in! My suggestions would be as following:
Sov and Alliance Section
The fact that a single entity (a coalition) can hold 1/3 of the game is weird to me. The Hacking module could be a excellent module make more active …

Watch This: Bringing back the Solobond…

Many of you might not have been around when gangs of nano-fitted Vagabonds roamed the wild scapes of null-sec, wrecking havok on everything that moved. Let’s face it, the Vagabond was one of the most overpowered ships back then. I personally saw a solo Vaga pilot take on 10 pilots on his own …

Submission: The Scumbag’s guide to the Galaxy…

My Two Isk: The Eve-Dust 514 Link

When I started playing eve online, It took me awhile to understand the importance of the link between the pilots and the mercenaries of Dust 514. Now that I understand the concept, I want to give my opinion on the subject. I’ll start with the features that are currently in place.
