  • Vitoc Illness from infected Pod Goo Dangerous for Capital Pilots in EVE Communication Center

    Yesterday I submitted over fifty samples to an Duvolle Laboratories facility for extensive testing. These biological samples were gathered from a range of ships in both my own hangars and those of other pilots. The intent of course was to establish the beginnings of a database for which to assess the possible extent of the issue. Naturally, I chose a non-Minmatar institution to reduce the inevitable claims of bias that would follow any findings by Matari science.

    Unfortunately, the tests have not been run as the samples were rejected by the lab. Apparently the Gallentean researchers lack the constitution to handle fifty Fedo's and complained excessively about the smell when they opened the transit cages. It is a shame really, those Fedo's have been licking decks clean of pod goo residues for years and are undoubtedly loaded with the stuff.

  • Vitoc Illness from infected Pod Goo Dangerous for Capital Pilots in EVE Communication Center

    The whole thing has CONCORD's grubby finger prints all over it. CONCORD craves stability above all and what does the Vitoc Method ensure but the imposition of order over an otherwise disgruntled populace? Doubtless they will turn to some other explanation to deflect blame away from the Amarr. Better to blame some external factor than to allow for further discord to impact the status quo.

    Now if you will all excuse me I need to go lie down, I feel quite...tired.

    This is in really poor taste and punishment worthy IMO.

    Frankly I'd class it as harassment as well as vandalism.

  • Dev blog: Fortune Favors the Bold in EVE Information Center

    The Prospect may not have the +2 warp strength of the Venture, but it does get +3 lows and covert ops cloaking.

    Sounds like an even more annoying stabbed FW LP farmer. That can warp around invisibly. And fit more WCS. And gets a 10m sig radius reduction. I don't like this thought.What?

  • [UNITY] The Path Ahead in EVE Communication Center

    TRIAD have rejoined the Ushra'Khan and together have begun pushing back at the recent Amarr encroachment into our home systems. A united effort and considered strategy is required to reverse the tide of battle thast has been running against us for too long now.

    Consider this a redoubling of our collective efforts. Although personally, I am now returning to my pod for the first time in nearly five months so consider anything I have to say as mere commentary until I've punched a few holes in some Amarrian warships.

  • [PROPOSAL] Highlighting corp buy/sell orders in your wallet tab in Council of Stellar Management

    I often set buy/sell orders for my corp but find that these are listed in my wallet orders tab as identical to my personal buy/sell orders. This makes it difficult if not impossible to know if I have enough ISK in my wallet, or indeed the corp wallet, to cover it all at any given time if I am buying/selling in amount sthat exceed either wallet (which happens all the time!).

    I would like to see corporation buy/sell orders given a blue highlight on the orders tab in a similiar manner to how they are already highlighted on the transactions tab. Or marked in some other intuitive manner!

    For bonus points, add the totals for corp orders to the summary at the bottom of the orders tab.

    Thanking helpful +1's, CSM's and UI dev's in advance. ;)

    cheers,

    Meh double post.

  • Dev Blog: Player Owned Customs offices in Hi-Sec in EVE Information Center

    About the new skill....

    Who has to train it? Is it trained by the CEO and applied to the Corp in the same way as a skill that increases max Corp membership?

    If so, do we really need another skill that only a handful of characters will ever train and becomes nearly compulsory in order for the Corp to compete? It just doesn't sound very interesting and will be a barrier to entry for newer players trying to develop their characters/corps.

  • L4 High-Sec Sisters of Eve Security Agents in EVE Technology and Research Center

    I'm in favour of the SOE treating all four empires equally and placing a lvl 4 agent inside the territory of each nation.

    If they don't I may be forced to interpret this as a slight against the Brutor tribe and become upset about it. I'll think of a justification after the fact in order to give everyone else reasons to be annoyed with me, they seem to enjoy that.

    Now there's a thought. Since we were nice enough to hand Broteau over to Republic justice, they can surely reciprocate by handing over members of a known terrorist organisation.


    And if those suspects have no knowledge of or direct connection to Atlanins? What would the point?

    Broteau was apprehend at the scene of the crime with overwhelming evidence of his guilt from the outset. You are calling for the Republic hand over individuals who they may not even have in custody with likely only circumstantial connections to a crime against the Federation.

    I fail to see what you expect to be gained other than a show trial for political benefit.

    My impression is that things are getting pretty out of control in the Republic. That a lot of you are looking around and wondering what the hell happened. That's a pretty bad place to be, and I sympathize.


    Hardly. Things were out of control back when Midular was struggling to run the government and getting no-where. The Elder's purge of proven traitors largely cleared house and allowed for the Republic to begin getting back on its feet. It was always going to be a slow process but now that the Tribal has been formally convened we are seeing clear signs of progress.

    Unique, yes. At least I didn't say that I consider us to be superior or the chosen of a higher being or what have you. That would have just been plain arrogant of me.

    Throughout the duration of the Great Exodous the Republic continued to fall on economic and social hard times made worse by increasingly frequent labour shortages in the outer colonies as more and more people packed up and left their homes behind to settle in the Federation.

    My point here is simple enough. Vast numbers of Minmatar who were born and raised within the Republic and its Tribal culture now live within the Federation and have been there for only a few years. Those are the people who I have been referring to as not yet being fully integrated and at considerable risk of being alienating by recent events. The article highlighted by Katarina Musana is an excellent example of this.


    Question and Statement #1:
    What caused these people to just pack up and leave the Republic in the first place? To me it sounds things were pretty bad for them if they felt they had to leave. The tone I am getting from your statements implies that the Federation should have denied them entry and a place to live and work. In fact, you seem to imply that it would have been better for all involved if we had shut our borders and sent them back to the place they were trying to leave in the first place or shunt them off into the far reaches of null sec.

    Generally, when someone is leaving a place to settle in another place it is because they are either being oppressed, persecuted, or dismissed by those in charge. If everyone is so concerned about the Minmatar living as Federation citizens, why not ask them instead of blowing up their factories in the name of an exiled leader who spoke against violence and looked for a peaceful solution to the problems at hand?

    The hypocrisy of the Bloody Hand is appalling.

    My second question for you sir, and any other Republican for that matter:
    If, say for reasons, a large population from the Federation had moved into your territory, would you have allowed them to keep completely to their own ways or would you have asked that they at least observe some of the basic principles and laws of your Republic?


    As I said, the cause of the Exodous was the poor state of the Republic's economy at that time coupled with dissatisfaction over the leadership of the day and their failure to address the problem. Primarily, people left to find work because they could not find it back home. Things have improved since and continue to do so, but not enough to spark a reversal of the trend on anything like the same scale.

    I do not believe that these huge numbers of people were inspired by ideology to uproot the lives, it was simply born of a necessity to provide for themselves and their families.

    As to your hypothetical question, would I expect a large Gallentean population to assimilate into Minmatar Tribal culture? No, I would not. I would not, because they cannot. We are born Minmatar, we are born a part of our Tribe and the greater Minmatar whole. It is not something that could ever be awarded by sitting a citizenship examination. That is the fundamental difference between us, the Federation, and indeed the State or even Empire, believes that it can make anybody from any background into a citizen or subject.

    While I don't think you could ever say that any people as a whole are "flawlessly integrated" into the Federation, the historically-minded among us will notice that most of the Federation Matari have been living in the Federation for generations, and that they've in general managed to be integrated quite nicely. They're a huge segment of the Federation, making up a number of extremely powerful voting blocs, living everywhere from fully integrated metropolises to relatively monoracial enclaves. They enjoy greater standards of living, on average, than citizens of the Republic. They are free to follow their tribal culture - or not - as they choose. With that in mind...

    I suspect that the Bloody Hand may now be finding new recruits among the Minmatar population within the Federation.


    ...I'm very curious about your reasoning for making that statement.



    Less than eight years ago it was identified by the University of Caille that the beginnings of an unprecedented and massive exodous of Minmatar into the Federation had begun. They were later proven right as the influx of immigrants intensified and continued for years to come until the trend was finally curbed by the advent of the Elder War and transitioning of the Republic's government under SanbMatar Shakor's leadership.

    Throughout the duration of the Great Exodous the Republic continued to fall on economic and social hard times made worse by increasingly frequent labour shortages in the outer colonies as more and more people packed up and left their homes behind to settle in the Federation.

    I believe that the correct focus here would be for the Gallente to make a greater attempt to understand why this happened and to take steps towards rectifying their attitudes towards Tribal culture. If they continue to blithely disregard it then we are all doomed to see a repetition of this incident and worse.


    Why do you say that? Because the Bloody Hand will continue to burn down factories? Or are you arguing that this is an emergent behavior due to the fact that you Minmatar are these special "tribal" folks? 'Cos it sure doesn't look like that to me.

    Stop making excuses for what is really just criminal behavior. Stop trying to paint all the rest of the Republic Matari with that brush. I don't think they really appreciate it.


    I suspect that the Bloody Hand may now be finding new recruits among the Minmatar population within the Federation. The Gallente should be considering this possibility and asking why this may now be the case and what they could do to change opinions and address the problem at an early stage.

    Or, they could follow your lead and blindly insist that there are no underlying issues surrounding this event and that Gallente society has flawlessly integrated many millions of immigrants in only a few years, miraculously eliminating any and all sources of racial tension.

    Sadly, I'm fairly sure that is not the case as we are not discussing a hypothetical event here.
