    Nah. Just don't be lazy and you'll be fine.

    You guys even have an AUTZ corp--- oh, wait, no.


    We're actually pulling 100+ guys for most AUTZ ops after Dansara spent a few months rebuilding it, the point of my post is to keep the moon miner viable as a fight generator and avoid the stupidity that comes from the current garbage of '3 timers and a week of time for a citadel with no fuel in it at all thats not defended'


    Man, you guys must have hated Dominion sov if you can't handle three or more timers for a thing.

    Given the rate that your alliance (and others) slaughter rorquals in our space, one would think you'd see the fight potential in these things.


    The POTENTIAL is there, but, given current citadel tactics everybody is simply going to put these to down time for vulnerability and at best you'll be ganking miners while its active.

    The structure itself will end up entirely immune, which sucks because like or not hitting a moon miners is a fairly huge part in nullsec warfare, its one of those things that allow smaller entities to harass larger entities in a meaningful way, not just 'lol ganked ur hulk'


    I tend to agree with your view. I simply hate the aids that short vulns have provided and railed against this prior to cits launching. I feel like CCP got the balance completely backwards and Keeps shoulda had Medium vuln windows and Mediums the Keeps.

    CCP rebalancing windows to favor larger structures and generally a bit larger vuln times would be a good thing.

    Moongoo represents the smallest part of our income for our alliance. Shifting it to be a group activity that others can come party crash is about as good as you can get in EVE. More things in space that go boom is always a good thing. We all abused the top down income stream for all of these years. Time to let bottom up income flourish even more than it already is.

    Smaller entities will indeed have to adjust. Invite others to come mine and tax them. Shift to other income streams. Wail and gnash your teeth. The choice is yours.

    Fun fact. We had been investing in this for years ahead of time on a personal and alliance level. I am pretty smug about the random Reddit post a while back showing a single spec can of mine that was full of goo. Checkmate.


  • I run for CSM on the platform of Completing Captians Quarters. in Council of Stellar Management

    Not that any of this matters cause you won't get on but...

    Understanding how the CSM can effectively work might be your first stop.

  • Aryth for CSM 12 in Council of Stellar Management

    This is where most people would list their myriad reasons they are running for CSM. Maybe they would write out long platform statements with some overarching narrative. Their dreams of how to make EVE great again.

    I am not going to do any of those things because I don't need your votes you terrible pubbies.

  • ♛♛ Bobmon for CSM 12 ♛♛ in Council of Stellar Management

    Bobmon got along well with everyone on the CSM. The key thing about CSM11 was the rebooting of the relationship not only within the CSM itself but also with CCP. When you are picking a candidate keep this in mind as anyone you vote for should be someone that can get along with a group of their peers.

    Bobmon can do that for you.

  • The socket was closed in EVE Technology and Research Center

    This morning it has reversed for me. To login i now had to ENABLE the ssl check. Ahh CCP never change.

  • The socket was closed in EVE Technology and Research Center

    How many of us experiencing this are TWC?

  • Monthly Economic Report - February 2016 in EVE Information Center

    Could you include contracts in some of these #s? A great portion of null economic activity is in the form of contracts.

  • [Citadels] Changing NPC taxes in EVE Technology and Research Center

    So happy to see taxes in ISK. Makes things so much easier for owners and just in general.

  • REOPENED! 300b bond, 1.8%, need investors, overcollateralized in EVE Gameplay Center

    Someone shoulda took the amnesty! (I know I know it wasn't open then.)

  • Something Wicked this CSM Comes - Aryth for CSM XI in Council of Stellar Management

    Obviously you and I must be listening to different interviews, Mental Incapacity, because we've reached entirely opposite conclusions.

    Aryth is, I'm sure, a skilled and knowledgeable player. He certainly talked with a lot of self-assurance on the matter of the 'jewbal' and his previous exploits.

    However, despite his personal relationships with Sion, The Mittani and Mynnna, he is deeply out of touch with the realities of the CSM. Multiple CSM members have come out over the last few weeks to talk about how the biggest trouble with CCP is getting them to even acknowledge you. In the interview, Aryth glossed over this fact by insisting that his communication attitudes of 'blunt truth' and 'no filter' will get his message through to the (supposed) right people.

    Here's my question: No-one at CCP has to listen to you and no-one at CCP, barring the summit, has to be in the same room as you.

    How are you going to get heard, Aryth?

    What strikes me about your attitude is that you're running on all the same points Sion and The Mittani did. What exactly, apart from that fact that it's you doing it, makes you and your campaign any different from theirs?


    That is the thing. I am not going in with the expectation to "get heard". I can just use the media to be heard if I want. You know, like Sion had to and then things changed.

    As of this week, CCP Guard (that's me) and CCP Logibro have been handed management of the CSM. Any questions, or queries regarding the CSM project should be directed to either of us in the future.

    Don't forget to vote in the coming election!


    Luv you long time.

  • Dev blog: Structure fitting in the EVE: Citadel Expansion in EVE Information Center

    When you iterate on the refine. Keep in mind the current bonus's are much larger in null and even that isn't enough to see much refining.

    Glad to see more details! Thanks for the info.

    The reprocessing rigs have me a little worried. Right now, the maximum base reprocessing rate available in highsec is 52%, but with drilling platforms, you can get 59%, and nullsec gets its 60%. I feel like this is a pretty drastic increase in highsec reprocessing efficiency; is there a reason why it's such a large increase?


    Ideally, you want this to be about a 3% spread between highsec and othersec. That way it somewhat offsets the shipping/risk.

  • Dev blog: Structure fitting in the EVE: Citadel Expansion in EVE Information Center

    The 3 hour window on medium and the 6 hour on larges seems awfully low. These are going to be practically unkillable if buried in really off hours. There is little reason to have to do 3 awful hour timers for something that costs 600m-1B fitted.

    Lol. Go for it. This owns.

    you can lie and say your not, but it is common knowledge that you are a paid employee and shareholder in tmc. you should be blocked from running like sion.

    i have nothing against goons. but if the rule applies to one it should apply to all.


    Since there are probably dumb enough people out there who believe that.
    Let just go on record shall we.

    I am not a TMC shareholder.
    I am not a TMC employee or contractor.
    I have never signed a TMC NDA.

    I am however an axis of Evil. He got that part right.

  • Something Wicked this CSM Comes - Aryth for CSM XI in Council of Stellar Management

    Most you of should have never heard of me. This is intentional as I prefer to remain behind the curtain. I am perhaps the most Xenophobic of all the Goonswarm Directorate and this has manifested itself in essentially a shadow broker persona. When it comes to EVE I have mostly done everything there is to do with a handful of exceptions. WHs are not for me for example. But hey, that is what minions are for right.

    My focus is the meta, game mechanics, economics, and empire building. I am a soothsayer, cartel leader, mass manipulator, and the transmission of our war machine.

    My platform can be summed up very simply as this:
    Anything that promotes discreet mechanics that build upon each other to form a complex player ran empire, or even small businesses, I am going to promote. Anything that is siloed or has little relation to other systems I will lobby against.

    I see EVE as a large organism that benefits from complex interactions. As far as I am concerned, the future of EVE is about territory, space meta, Doomsdays glittering across space, sandcastles burning off the gates of EC-.

    Every story needs a villain.

    I am pretty qualified for that.

    Not to say anyone is leaking anything...

    ...but anyone who's leaking NDA info, anywhere, not just here. Who's worth 2 grains of salt knows never to leak anything in such a manner where the source can't be pointed elsewhere, and impossible to trace back to the individual.

    Which makes the quote in question literally worthless...


    Coming from me it doesn't. Coming from someone like Elise, who has access to everything, it absolutely doesn't. It's fair to say I dont know everything about PL's inner workings, and I cannot rule out the possibility he shared something with someone privately that I am obllivious to. But I have spoken to him, at length, in the past, and know this is not something he would do flippantly, or in order to give PL an advantage. The offer for CCP to read our forums was to show that we are being as open as we POSSIBLY can be about this. Hell, I know Elise has made the same offer in the past.

    CCP want to keep this matter between themselves and Manny, even though, in exceptional circumstances (like hydra cheating) everyone knew everything, and all of the information regarding the bannings in the tournament were completely publicised. Perhaps because CCP had proof. Because this is not the case in this particular incident, I cannot help but feel CCP does not have any proof.

    This isn't a democracy, CCP get to decide what to do. But the fact they won't tell us is going to create a bad vibe between us. We want to be open on this. Unless CCP can show us proof, then I have to call their accusations bullshit. I know manny, I certainly dont know the CCP employees who chose to remove him. So until anything changes, I'm siding with manny on this, and saying that his removal from the CSM was based on poor assumption, rather than objective fact.


    As someone who was in the know. He is guilty. I know you probably don't want to take my word for it but he very much was.


    Don't take this the wrong way, but im not going to take your word for it no, especially not considering you're in goonswarm, an alliance i would seriously consider to be using CSM intel for market speculation.

    IF you can show me proof of it however...

    That being said, I think it's really ****** of you to come out and say 'yes he was cheating' without saying why, even if it is just to say 'it would not give PL an advantage' or the opposite. It sounds like youre trying to play petty politics.

    This isnt a personal attack on you, but honestly, the CSM SHOULD (heh) be above politics and a way in which all alliances try and improve the game they play in. Using it to score cheap points seems like a really crappy thing to do. Either tell us what you know, or dont say anything, because you stir the pot and its not fair on anyone.


    I leaked everything in had directly into structures tweetfleet slack for this very reason. Saying who leaked and what he leaked weeks in advance. Directly in front of CCP. So, yes, I have "proof" for the taking if you were one of those 350+ people who saw it.
