Super and Titan Down in Genesis

Just over 4 hours after a Nyx was killed in Cobalt Edge a further Erebus and Nyx joined the past weeks tally of super-capital loss mails after being destroyed in the Aring system of Genesis, starting March off  with a bang.
Both of the ships mentioned above were part of the Psychotic Tendencies …

TISHU Titan Down: Chaos Theory Behind the Kill

I have always liked Eve’s “Butterfly Effect” trailer as it really expressed one of the greatest aspects Eve – small actions can have consequences beyond the obvious. The following story will deal with the background of a recently destroyed titan and offer some insight into …

Dev Post: Change to the CSPA charge default.

Afternoon Space Friends,
Another quick post here to let you know of a change Five-0 have ready for testing on Singularity.
When Scylla is released, the default CSPA charge for newly created characters will default to 0 ISK instead of 2950 ISK.
For any existing characters that have their CSPA charge …

Greetings Capsuleers,

Vanguard Frontiers: 600 Billion ISK Heist

On the evening of 27th February 2015 I was contacted by Non Erata, a Canadian Eve Online player and former member of Vanguard Frontiers (VAF). He wanted to give me information of a heist that was 6 months in the making and that may put his name into the top 10 Eve Online thieves in game …

In Its Wake There Will Follow A Storm

EVE Players await the imminent arrival of CCP’s second phase of changes to the game’s sovereignty (sov) mechanics. Two lengthy dev-blogs were forecast by a sheepishly grin-faced CCP Fozzie and should arrive any day now. Clearly, CCP is bracing itself for a torrent of feedback from the …

No Need to Make it Complicated

I think EVE is at its best when it is a social game. While the game can be played as a solo affair and I am sure there are those who prefer it so, I think it is the relationships with other players that make for a great game experience. The game mechanics allow for players to join together to form …

The Small Things: AUTZ hit hard by down times, My Picks for CSMX and MORE!

Welcome to the sixth article in an ongoing series on EN24 where we will be looking at the ‘small things’ that might not make a full EN24 article but are either funny or interesting enough to share anyway!
We here at EN24 will be running one of these articles once a week after scouring the …

Nyx Down in Cobalt Edge

As with my previous posts it really is proving to be a costly year for supercapitals, with more dying each day.
This time it was Nyx piloted by Vlaxius Nym of Shadow of xXDEATHXx alliance which met it’s end in the system of KI2-S3 in Cobalt Edge.
To dredge up the details of fight I …

Providence Bloc Locks Horns with Low Sec Entities over Moons in the Ziriert System

Pandemic Legion Kill Revenant!

This morning one of the rarest ships in EVE, a Revenant, died at the hands of Pandemic Legion.
The ship was piloted by Ingeneer of Prelium Ultima alliance who are primarily seen around Impass, as shown by the loss taking place in the system of 6E-MOW. The story started earlier this week, when PL …

Leak: New Skins!

Caprisunkraftfoods on Reddit has linked a massive list of leaked skins.
I’m particularly partial to the amazing Khanid & Sarum Amarrian ship skins, while some of the other races’ ships are quite lackluster. Take the Aeon skins for example; both of these are things I could see myself …

Dev Blog: Balance Changes Coming In Scylla

Howdy Ishtar lovers

Although us balance-oriented folks have been very busy working on things like the NPE and Sov (!?), we took some time aside to put together a high-impact pass for Scylla (March 24) and I want to tell you about it!

As always, we are reading your feedback, monitoring …

The o7 show was aired this evening at 2000 Eve time and there were some great announcements and some really interesting stuff on show in CCP’s flagship live dev blog. In the following article we will run through the main announcements that were featured.
UI Modernization: New Ship Icons

How about a little consideration

Kill mails. You know ‘em. You love ‘em. You want ‘em! For a great many people in EVE it is all about the Killboard. We will race across New Eden with complete abandon for the chance to get in on a juicy capital kill mail. We will frantically unplug implants to keep them off of someone …

Peering Into the Bottom of the Bucket

New Eden has never been in danger of running short on villains. In fact, depending on one’s point of view, just about everyone is a villain. “My side is good, their side is evil”, seems to be at the heart of much of EVE political thought. It is likely a simple fact of the human …

Leviathan Down in Black Rise

Super capital wrecks have been strewn across low- & null-sec since Phoebe and this month has been no exception. To add to the current tally of 9 supers and 2 titans which have died as of February, another titan joins the scrap heap of eviscerated dreams.
The Leviathan-class titan was destroyed …

Dev Blog: UI Modernization – Icon Strategy
