Blog Posts - Null Sec



An Ibis in Immensea

We had gotten word earlier in the week from our CEO that we needed to go on more fleet ops.  Or, more specifically, that we needed to click on more participation links for fleet ops.  Eight such links a month was the requested amount. And eight suc...

The Proposed Phase Two of Sovereignty Changes

There was a big, big dev post from CCP yesterday about their next phase of changes to null sec sovereignty.  The first phase came with Phoebe back in November, which introduced jump fatigue.  That expansion changed the null sec map… before it...

Black Friday for SBUs

Today looked like the day I would be able to really test the reformed computer.  Over the last couple of days there had been much hurffing on Jabber about a big fight coming today.  After taking LBGI-2, N3 had been pushing on the Y-2ANO, the gatewa...

Returned from Omist

While my weekend… and, really, the last week… was spent mostly focused on World of Warcraft, I did find some time to drop into EVE Online.  I sort of had to, or end up stranded. Shortly after the Phoebe expansion hit the game, as in the...

A Consolidation of Empires

I will be interest to read what Andrew Groen has to say in his planned book A History of the Great Empires of EVE Online (the Kickstarter has six days to go as of today) about the state of affairs that exist today in null sec space. Life is change of...

Tackling in Syndicate

One of the things that has often been said about EVE Online is that a new player can be useful on day one.  In any operation there is generally room for the new guy in a basic frigate who is willing to get out there and tackle hostiles for the fleet...

All The Way to Placid for a Kill

Well, two kills actually. It started with the usual lure.  The call went out for a Baltec fleet for a strat op. I am all about the strat ops, and I happened to be home and sitting in front of my computer, so off I went to join Shock Fist, Reagalan,...

A Quiet Tower Shoot at KDV-DE

There was another chance to shoot things with lasers last night.  Reagalan was leading a fleet into Pure Blind to finish off one of the towers that had previously put into reinforce.  The destination was KDV-DE. We were a little slow getting off. ...

Lasers and Towers and Black Legion in Pure Blind

The tempo of operations has picked up a bit in Deklein.  The rumor on coms is that The Mittani has returned from some press junket and is getting all the veterans of foreign wars, now loafing about the region, warmed up and engaged so that we are re...

Siphon Extortion – Working as Intended

Our alliance chief sent out a pastebin over coms the other day featuring a “nice towers, shame if something happened to them” extortion approach.  (Name replaced with SG for “some guy,” which is his approximate level of notor...

Lasers at Last

I might be coming out of my EVE Online malaise… a bit.  Aside from corp day ice mining, I haven’t really logged on to do anything in the game aside from update skill queues.  And I even let that slip at one point. Oh sure, now the Neoco...

Chasing Around Deklein

There was a time last year when merely watching the Jabber announcement feed would end up giving me a quick fight a couple times a week.  I took note at the end of February 2012 that there was always a party. Hostiles would show up and camp the undo...

Cyclone Fleet Bags Two Carriers

Okay, our intrepid allies, Gentleman’s Agreement, and their Rokh fleet had the larger part in the carrier kills.  But we were there. I was just sitting down at the computer for the evening and wondering what I should do when the call went out...

And Sometimes We Just Fly in Circles

Every time I see a call go up for a Drake fleet, I try to join if I have the time.  My hope is to winnow down the Drakes I have stashed around in null sec, as CCP’s nerfs to my longtime favorite ship have made it unlikely to remain useful in f...

Returning to EWN-2U a Year Later

A year ago I was posting about what was really my first big fight in null sec.  I had been on some fleet ops previously, but had either been so lost, or the fights had been so fast, that I barely knew what was going on.  So up to that point I had o...

What Happened to the War Fever?

We’re going to war. This is a fact we can’t ignore. We’re going to war. In case you hadn’t heard before, I think they think we’re going to war. We’re going to war. I think they think we’re going to war. We...

First Bounty in Venal

I managed a few firsts last night. I got into my first fleet op of the year.  It seems that Black Legion is up for fights in Venal.  An operation got called, so I put down World of Tanks and joined the fleet. It was also my first time taking out my...

A Year in Null Sec

A year ago yesterday I first set foot into 0.0 space in EVE Online. Well, at least on purpose.  There was that incident early in my career. This time around my friend Gaff, who had been in null sec for some time as part of the TNT alliance, sponsore...
