Jester’s Trek: COTW – Inferbiconyssey

So an anonymous commenter dropped a rather flippant little question into my most recent CSM update that I feel deserves a longer response than I can give in the comments:

How about this… in the broadest of terms, what can we expect for the summer expansion in terms of its scope. From 1 to …

Lord Road: Solo Sniping [101]

The reasons why I decided to write this 101 are very simple: first, because vanity is definitely my favourite sin – I love bragging. Second, because CCP overpowered interceptors and now we all play eveceptors online. I hope that after reading my paper some of you will consider that sniping is …

Seraph IX Basarab: CSM Causality – As you sow, so shall you reap

I’ll go ahead and give the TL;DR at the start since it may be a tedious story to follow and some may not care. The main point is that Jayne Fillon has, by his own admission, violated the EULA and has no place being in the CSM. He has done this by impersonating me with an alt and attempting to …

Everyone Wants to be a Ninja.
When it comes to Eve online, or for that matter any MMO the path of stealth is often a popular one. The assassins, the rogues and the thieves have always had a certain allure to them and it came to no surprise that as soon as I had got my head around the colossal …
