The Cold War is Ends!…War Begins

I am not going to cover much of the events leading up to the giant fight at B-R5RB because there is going to be tons of information on what happened and right now everyone is still sorting it out. I want to do is say that I could not be…Read More »


Where is the POCO Destruction?

So here we are months into the Rubicon expansion. An expansion that put Customs Offices in high-sec into player hands and that was supposed to mean more pew pew and less free ISKies. Well so far its not exactly doing a good job spreading the content around. Combat in high-sec…Read More »


War Profiteering Example: HED-GP

Earlier this week I wrote a war profiteering guide for eve online. Today I log in to find that the CFC and allies are engaged in HED-GP against N3/PL in a Tidi battle that was huge. This fight is the perfect example for what players should look for when trying…Read More »


War Profiteering – Guide

In eve war is both inevitable and necessary. The entire economy rests on combat because without destruction there would be no reason to create and no reason to trade. Today I will discuss how you can make a profit from the wars that fuel eve-online. I wouldn’t recommend getting involved…Read More »

Transporting Valuables? Think again

This isn’t a new topic by any means but due to some recent high value kills I decided I would discuss transporting expensive goods. Every day there are transport pilots who get ganked and don’t seem to learn from their experience. A player cannot avoid being ganked, they can however…Read More »


Market Trading – Prevent Taking a Loss

 Have you ever bought an item to resell only to have that item drop in price? Well you’re not alone and there is a rather simple solution. Items routinely go up and down in price and often someone is left holding the bag. Several times I have bought items at…Read More »


DG #1 – Eve Wardec

Dear Golden,
I found out about Eve-Online a few months ago when some of my friends started playing. We like it so much we decided to create a corp so that we could easily communicate. Earlier this week we got a notification that our corporation had been war-dec’d by another corporation….Read More »


Rubicon Speculation Report

I made a few speculation investments based on the information we were given before Rubicon launched. Some of them made isk, some of them lost isk, but overall I made a profit. I invested in the ships that were the least used in the hope that they would gain the highest…Read More »

Dominix/Armageddon Investment Status

It has finally happened! The Dominix is selling for more than its resource cost in Jita. For those of you who are not aware I wrote a speculation post and a two month update where I mention that several battleships will be a worthwhile investment. My predictions that it would…Read More »


SOMERblink Incentive For GTC Purchases – More to Come?

Recently SOMERblink increased its ISK payout for buying GTC’s from them (200M to 1B ISK). This is due to the fact that CCP is pushing their re-sellers of GTC’s to stop allowing websites to offer incentives to players who buy from them.  I am not here to get into the…Read More »


New Info on Siphon’s!

CCP posted their latest blog which discusses how the new Siphon units will work in Rubicon.
Here are the important notes from the blog:

Siphon units will only take up 20m^3 of space when in a ship
No setup time required
Once placed cannot be picked up
Can be attacked/accessed by anyone
POS does not shoot…Read More »


High-sec POCO’s not as great as we hoped

After watching the twitch stream about new features coming in Rubicon I was ecstatic about being able to own Player Owned Customs Offices. This would allow me and my friends to own a small piece of land and make a relatively small income to spend on more pew-pew. That changed…Read More »


Rubicon Announced!

Today CCP had a live twitch stream where they talked about their new expansion Rubicon slated for later this year.
Here are a list of the expected changes for those who missed the live stream :
HS customs offices are fair game – Players can control HS Custom offices and set their…Read More »

Playing Among is not Playing With

I’ve never been lonelier…

“What is an MMO?”  As more and more games get announced with the MMO tag, I’ve found myself questioning its definition more and more.  In the present wave of MMOs, arguably with Guild Wars 2 leading the charge, the industry seems to be pushing the concept of…Read More »

Adventures of an Eve Scrub 3 : POS Bash

 Let me begin this article with the fact that my journalistic commitment has genuinely harmed my employment chances. Due to my last article about Awoxing, I had roughly fifteen other corporations take a look at me, and do a quick Google search before snorting derisively and told me to go…Read More »


The Reason to Diversify – Eve-Online

With the Odyssey 1.1 patch now fully up and running there was a bit of commotion over Mining Foreman Mindlinks. Apparently they can be purchased using Loyalty Points from the store. Normally a change such as this isn’t too game breaking but when the item is worth over 1 billion…Read More »


Odyssey 1.1 Speculation

So you are sitting on some idle cash and want to make some extra ISK while you get ready for CCP’s latest expansion, Odyssey 1.1. The question is: Where should you invest your isk to make the most of it. As always there are clear indicators of when and where…Read More »


How shiny are the moons of Fountain?

As many noobs in this game, I still have this childish admiration for the greatest ships in Eve: Super-Capitals. These gargantuan demigods are so big that, rumor has it, they can even work as stations! These things however, are expensive, more expensive than I could even conceive. For that, they…Read More »


Goonswarm’s Rental Problems

Goonswarm has announced their intention to rent their available space to other corporations in order to make more ISK.  With the war in Fountain and Delve winding down, this is not really that surprising. Wars cost money and, as valuable as those regions are, they can be worth even more…Read More »


Adventures of an Eve Scrub, Part 1

One of the first things that I ever realized about Eve Online is that I am terrible at it. I get blown up probably once every few days. Sometimes by carelessly wandering into an NPC encounter I can’t hope to win, sometimes by trying to transport expensive mining materials through…Read More »


Plex The Gold of New Eden?

Plex or Pilot’s License Extension allows players in game to buy game time with ISK, and players who have real money to buy ISK in game. This system benefits all parties by providing money to CCP and ISK or game time to players. For years now, I have seen players…Read More »


The Market You Didn’t Know Existed

Corpse collecting, sure it is a little odd but that shouldn’t be all too surprising in Eve Online. Now corpses don’t have any real value, they cannot be refined or salvaged for implants, but collectors are still going crazy for them. Players are always trying to find ways to make…Read More »


Why Live in Wormhole Space?

There are upsides and downsides to living in wormhole space but is it worth it? Obviously there is the money factor, money is easy to make in wormholes and even though players might struggle at first anyone can make it work. The other reason players like to live in wormholes…Read More »


Can You Create a Trade Hub?

Is it possible to create a new trade hub? Well the question has been asked before but to adjust it: Can one player lay the seeds of creation for a new trade hub? A trade hub obviously has to have more than one trader supplying resources and buying the excess,…Read More »


Can CCP Improve Low-sec?

Since the start of Eve players have been discussing how they can improve low-sec and encourage high-sec players to join in the fun. Unfortunately there is little that can be done to encourage players to leave the safety of high-sec for the unknown of low-sec.  Here are some of the…Read More »


Time to Invest in T2 Ships? – Eve-Online

So CCP is done balancing all T1 ships and we have seen some crazy price changes because of the adjustments in mineral cost and demand of the ships. Do you think it is over? I certainly don’t. We know that CCP is working on balancing Command Ships and fixing medium…Read More »


T2 BPO’s – The Misconceptions – Eve-Online

There are many misconceptions about T2 BPO’s and I will do my best to show you why T2 BPO’s are not a big deal. They don’t give a huge advantage to those who hold them, and they don’t upset the balance of the market. Most importantly they don’t usually generate…Read More »


Odyssey Speculation Update – Eve-online

Two months after Odyssey Where are the markets?
Well it’s been two months and how have some of the investments I mentioned earlier done? Well it has been a rather slow start, but quicker than I initially predicted. Though I still think it might be a year before these ships gain…Read More »


How Important Are Traders to Eve-online?

How important are traders to eve-online? Typically traders are seen as middlemen who have little interest in providing goods to players at a low cost but that isn’t exactly true. Traders drive the market prices down and are able to make goods available where they are typically not. This in…Read More »


Why Do Small Corporations War-dec? – Eve

Why do small corporations war-dec other corporations? Well I wish I could say that wars happened between two entities that hate each other but generally the wars that do occur are from a greifing corporation just to have fun and get a better killboard. This is one of the things…Read More »


CCP Hires Ex-VP of EA

That’s right CCP just hired Sean Decker as their senior VP of product development he was previously with EA as their VP of the group “play4free”. The forums for eve-online are already alive with rage as players assume that this is the start of a bad road for CCP. As…Read More »


Eve-Online Odyssey Probe Changes!

In Odyssey probe scanning is getting a rework and it looks to be a full overall. With improvements in scanning, ease of use, and making the scanning system look better will no doubt make scanning a more viable profession for beginners and veterans. I have noted some of the bigger…Read More »


Effects of Wealth in Eve-Online

What would you do with billions of Isk in Eve-Online?
This seems like a stupid question to ask, to the average player the response is along the lines of “They buy a big ass ship and go kill shit with it.” However after investigations and trials I have determined that players…Read More »


Eve-Online BS Mineral Changes

We all knew it was coming but did you invest soon enough? We have received the new resource costs for battleships on Sisi and it looks like once again there will be a rise in buying, selling, and building of ships before the patch occurs. The numbers could change and…Read More »


Eve-Online Hacking in Odyssey

Think Eve-online is complicated? Just wait until the 4th of June when their new hacking and Archaeology interface is released. At first glance it looks really interesting but as I started to read about it I have some concerns. One of which they don’t mention is when hacking will the…Read More »


Eve-Online Trading Guide 5 of 5

Speculation
Speculation is just what it seems to be gambling that an item will go up in price and investing before everyone else knows. This tends to happen before the expansions go live. It is difficult to find what is going to be valuable before everyone else, and it requires lots…Read More »


Eve-Online Trading Guide 4 of 5

Station trading
Station trading is the lazy man’s trading. All you do is go to a major station like the ones in Jita or Dodixie and place buy orders for hundreds of items, and then sell those same items in the same station. The profit margin on this is pretty slim,…Read More »

Trade Routes

I consider trading routes as places players go to buy and sell items routinely. They can be from one trading hub to another or from one mission hub to a trading hub. This requires several things in order to be successful. First off they player needs to do extensive…Read More »


Eve-Online Update News

Today CCP released their next part of the expansion for Retribution. This includes many bug fixes and a few capital ship changes. Players also received a new limited edition battle-cruiser that looks to be cool and functional which is refreshing after the Echelon which was ugly and useless. The market…Read More »


Eve-Online Trading Guide 1 of 5
