HACs Are Broken. . . Aren’t They?

Bill McDonough 2021-07-06

We hear it all the time. In fact, we hear it so much that we accept it as true. The Heavy Assault Cruiser meta is broken. And so, Heavy Assault Cruisers themselves are broken. Unfortunately, this is both right and…

Cherrypickers Must Die

Elthar Nox 2021-07-02

Cherrypicking is the worst thing in EVE Online. This is a rant, so hold on to your analysers. The method of using a cargo scanner during exploration is a despicable act – it has repercussions that spread far further than…

Undeadenemy 2021-07-01

Seir Luciel 2021-06-28

When Goons first entered the game, “the veterans of EVE Online laughed at the naivety of this swarming pack of new players in terrible ships” writes Andrew Groen. “Goonfleet embraced this idea, and co-opted the idea of the ‘swarm’ for its own self-image.
