Amarr Empress Boldly Faces Down Space Pope in Tense Standoff

Rhiannon Williams 2015-07-20

In a surprising turn of events on Saturday, the Amarr Navy released a statement announcing a ceremonial Imperial keel-laying of a new ship “based on the Abaddon-class combat battleship platform.” While this was interesting in itself, what was really eye-opening was the announcement that Her Imperial Majesty Jamyl I was confirmed to attend, ending her…

TMC Archives 2015-07-20

The Battle of Tsushima. A pivotal engagement in the Russo-Japanese War at the beginning of the 20th century, this engagement was one of the most significant meetings of surface fleets in the formative decades when naval tactics were still adjusting to the rapid technological development that took place in the latter half of the 1800s.

Submission 2015-07-19

A mysterious ping went out to LAWN Alliance earlier tonight advising Interdictor pilots to “get to Roua now and ask questions later.” Shortly afterwards, a Cerberus fleet under Pittsburgh2989 was called and multiple-bridged by Titan into Roua.

Fozziesov has been out in the wild for a few days now, but it affected the nullsec landscape months before its deployment.

New animations for utility modules and Doomsdays on Singularity

TMC Archives 2015-07-18

CCP have released some new animations for utility module effects and titan doomsday weapons. The modules demonstrated here are those that have an effect ship-to-object rather than on the ship itself, so are more of the squiggly-lines-in-space type rather than the shimmery-effect-on-ship type. The Doomsday effects are, of course, more of the oh-my-god-what-just-happened-to-my-Naglfar type, and…

ALOD: Yolo’ing your Swag

Submission 2015-07-17

Normally at TMC we get killmails that involve supers and poorly fit industrials, with the occasional combat ship or PLEX hauler wandering into our sights.
