BB46: Actions Have Consequences

April 25, 2013
By

With the return of Live Events such as the Battle for Caldari Prime, clearly the prime fiction of EVE is back in favour as part of this new thematic approach to expansions. However, EVE's story is very much a tale of two playstyles, with an entirely player-driven narrative unfolding daily in parallel to the...

Nullsec Revamp Part III: Weapons of War

March 26, 2013
By

Mord Fiddle and Kirith Kodachi are having a discussion about what should be done about supercaps. I think they both have good points, and they've also provoked some thoughts of my own on the matter. Super Predators I agree that there's a need for some kind of dedicated subcap ship that can act as...

Down With Hangar Queens

March 25, 2013
By

So you may have heard by now that the pirate noobships people found on the test server were given away to PAX attendees; a CCP employee has confirmed on Reddit that the vessels will not be exclusive to PAX, but that they will still be limited, special edition ships, and not given out for...

Trebor for CSM8

February 20, 2013
By

Trebor is running again! As someone who sent him a mail asking that he do so, I'm very pleased, and he will definitely be receiving one of my votes, as promised. In the terribly unlikely event that anyone reads this blog who hasn't already made up their mind who to vote for, I endorse...

Nullsec Revamp Part II: Live In Your Space

January 31, 2013
By

Anyone who has spent any length of time in nullsec or involved in sov war will know that structure grinding is miserable and that most nullsec systems are empty, held by alliances who don't make any use of the space, but will happily jump on anyone stupid and masochistic enough to attempt grinding any...

BB44 – Nullsec Revamp Part I: Intel Gathering

January 17, 2013
By

The EVE blogosphere is abuzz with discussion about the Local channel and intel gathering methods – so much so that Seismic Stan of Freebooted has made it the topic of the 44th Blog Banter. Rixx Javix of EVEOGANDA has dramatically declared, "If you change it, I'll quit!" Now, I have touched on the linked...

Market Intervention: PLEX Price Controls

December 13, 2012
By

Over on Jester's Trek, I posted a comment explaining why CCP can't control PLEX prices by just spawning and selling PLEXes willy-nilly. I do think CCP needs to take action to bring the ever-increasing PLEX prices we've seen in the past year under control, but it needs to be done intelligently.

Terrible Ideas: Capsuleer Candidates – Taking EVE F2P

December 3, 2012
By
Pilot's License Extension

We all know from their experiments with micro-transactions in Incarna and DUST that CCP wants the profits that can come with the F2P or hybrid business model. Their first attempts to bring micro-transactions to EVE had less-than-stellar results, while DUST is being built for F2P and MT from the ground up, but has not...

Terrible Ideas: Democratizing Boosts

November 21, 2012

Here's a thought: What if boosts didn't have to be concentrated in a single boosting ship?

Terrible Ideas: More Mining Iterations

October 24, 2012
By

Be warned: This post is a bit of a rambling grab bag of topics. You know what I enjoy? Kitting out my high-end PVE ships with blingy gear. It's great fun for everyone – both the people who fly the blingy ships and the people who blow them up (and loot the resulting wreckage)....
