The Curious Case of the NPE

Kael Decadence 2017-04-23

The First Haunting Last year at EVE Fanfest, CCP introduced the new producer for the New Player Experience: CCP Ghost. As some readers of my material here and listeners of The Mind Clash Podcast might have gleaned by now, I am not a fan of Ghost and I don’t necessarily think he is as amazing…

David Matterall 2017-04-22

Northern Coalition (NC.) and the Initiative (INIT.) squared off Friday in TXW-EI and 1-NW2G in Syndicate and Cloud Ring respectively. The campaign to relieve INIT of its moon holdings in the area is progressing, sometimes slowly, but the crusty veterans of NC surprised themselves. All except FC Vince Draken, who has built a reputation on…

Preventing Burnout in Eve Online

Quendan 2017-04-22

My first-time endearment with EVE Online lasted less than a month, I went from wide-eyed newbie to burnt-out bittervet with one late-night rage ping. You see, I liked the idea of EVE. Stories of galaxy-spanning conflicts and intrigues, tales of betrayal. All this made EVE sound more like a second world, rather than a mere MMO…

Horizon Zero Dawn Review – A Worthwhile Scifi Adventure?

Chase Gamwell 2017-04-22

Note: When I first started playing Horizon, the screen had a tendency to feel…cluttered. Luckily, there’s a dynamic HUD option that will only show information pertinent to the player’s current actions. I’d strongly suggest making this change. It goes a long way in scaling back the HUD and increasing immersion. It’s also worth noting that…

Building Blocks of an Empire

Cody Pollard 2017-04-21

  How to build a corporation from the ground up is a question that has been around since EVE’s inception. For the most part, whether your intentions are to recruit a bunch of highsec missioners to farm them for taxes or build a group of PVPers to move out to null, the basics remain the…

The Drafting Table: 10mn Phantasm

Robby Kasparic 2017-04-20

The Drafting Table embarks on its first two-part series covering the Phantasm. This week is the regular-sized afterburner variant. Backstory I’ve been in a bit of a rut with regards to cruiser sized ships after the Ashimmu. The Phantasm became an intriguing option because it offered a couple of things I had not toyed with….

The Case for Fixing the Corp Finder

Porkbutte 2017-04-20

Welcome to EVE! If you have put in the effort to make it through the new player tutorials, and have stuck with your NPC corporation long enough to realize you don’t want to be in a non-player corporation, stepping out into the vast ocean of player-run corporations can be overwhelming and daunting. Thankfully, CCP has…

A Tale of Two Nyxs

Moomin Amatin 2017-04-19

Goons are going to Goon The definition of “Goon” has morphed somewhat over the years. Nowadays you get labelled a Goon for having any association with The Imperium. This means that any member of The Imperium is a Goon. Any friend of The Imperium is a Goon pet. Anyone posting anything that remotely agrees with…

Kyonoke: A Goon’s Tale

Submission 2017-04-18

The Keepstar was supposed to be a beacon of hope. It had instead become a place of fear, and desperation.
