Better Omega solo PvP

November 24, 2016

One of those rare few times that I am able to log into EVE and perform some activities outside the station, solo PvP is not my forte yet I keep doing it; badly.

Why would you keep doing this if all you ever do is die? That is a pretty solid question - since I am not a killboard whore these kills don't really bother me. I have scaled back from taking battlecruisers out on solo roams, so this is like experimental PvP - even for this old Omega (only in clone state).

Total cost of ships here is around 109 mil ISK - they were all going to die. I am not that bad an Omega, even if I am stic…

War Dec Round Table - video

November 2, 2016

Wars never change. I have spouted that more often than not, and we are all aware of how war decs in EVE seem to have fallen into further stagnation. Just around the corner are the Alpha Clone states, free to play EVE.

War is going to fuck them up! Will this finally bring change to war dec mechanics? Are war decs even a part of the NPE touted so well by CCP recently at EVE Vegas?

There is a LOT covered in the new NPE, and AURA spoon feeds players the basics of several different game mechanics, but not a war dec. This mechanic has simply been left to players to be the curators and fountains of…

Slow blogging - projects, projects, projects

October 25, 2016

I am still alive. I have not quit EVE - but I am preoccupied with some other projects. Now that we have that off our chest, lets get into some details.

Mass of Wrecks

The universe of New Eden is growing and is only going to get bigger very soon when the November update arrives bringing with it Alpha clones. While I myself am not in a position to be a huge teacher of old tricks to these new dogs, the Mass of Wrecks fleet will be a good place for these players to "cut their teeth" in unscripted PvP combat.

Mass of Wrecks fleet is a themed events fleet, designed to be like an event simil…

It starts with an Alpha

October 14, 2016

Since CCP's dev blog announcing that they were adding clone states into the game, the community has had lots to say on the matter. Then came the announced changes to the EULA. Which seems to have generated a lot of focus on one area, 3rd party Gambling sites are now banned from EVE Online - everyone has forgot about the kids already.

"As we move toward the introduction of alpha and omega clones, there are a number of changes we need to make to the EVE Online End User License Agreement in order to ensure that it stays up to date with the new access paradigm that will introduce free access to…

War Dec Project - round table

September 25, 2016

The war dec project hosted here has been on hold since January this year, due to a lot of changes and development happening with-in the game, and those that are still in the pipeline. This list is not exhaustive here are some of those changes:

  • Citadels release
  • Removal of Watchlists
  • World War Bee
  • Shadow of Serpent event
  • Purity of the Throne event
  • Alpha Clones

While I have mused about how War Never Changes, and Citadels Rebalancing War Decs - has war changed yet again into something more stagnant and predictable?

Toxic Yaken has been gathering pilots to host a round table…

How is the war dec going?

September 16, 2016

The time has been flying past and recently a friend who used to fly with us what only seems a few months ago returned to play EVE via one of the sign-up offers he was sent. The mass of changes that had been introduced to the game encouraged him to take up a 3 month subscription.

Tonight he asked, "So how is the war dec going?" Predictable was the answer. Just a few days ago they suffered 5.6b ISK loss in Jita. "Typical trade hub camping tactics" he mused, "Does no one do what we used to do and go hunt their targets?"

Since there is no longer a watchlist, it is now a buddylist, there is n…

Against the odds: Mass of Wrecks wins

August 30, 2016

This weekend in EVE saw some player organized events taking place, from Theomachy on Saturday, to the pew4reps Vehement charity fleet, and of course the Mass of Wrecks events fleet on Sunday. A conflict of schedules, but the show must go on, and the roam went ahead as planned, even with diminished numbers. The FC on the night, Serventos was actually the first player to get a kill in the Theomachy event. Great start to the weekend.

Then on Sunday night he led the Mass of wrecks fleet on a roam that resulted in 4.33 Bil ISK in kills with a 99.8% Efficiency for the fleet. Yep, 15 pilots all in…

Mass of Wrecks - Sunday 28th August 20:00

August 27, 2016





Mass of Wrecks launches its first fleet tomorrow into a storm of content taking place over the weekend. The scheduled fleet now competes with a #pew4reps charity Vehement fleet. That has not deterred the organizers who are going ahead with the fleet and schedule, hoping that the schedule conflict may actually provide content for the Mass of wrecks fleet. For full details check out the Mass of Wrecks Website:

Gallente Grind - Sunday 28th August
