  • [June] Fighter Damage Reduction in EVE Technology and Research Center

    The magnitude of this overreaction is hard to believe.

    As compared to VNI ratting, carrier ratting is very active and requires a lot of attention by the player. There should be a reward for that. It also requires that you put more ISK on the table. There should be a reward for that.

    A 20% damage nerf plus a 15% increase to the chance that rats will gank your fighters is just ridiculous.

    The damage nerf alone would be ridiculous. The notion of trying to make one of the most active forms of pve in the game even more intensive is just punitive.

    I hope you will reconsider.

  • [SOHCO] Tight Knit Null for Adults in EVE Corporations, Alliances and Organizations Center

    I definitely have issues if I'm posting in this thread at this hour. Let's be clear.

  • [SOHCO] Tight Knit Null for Adults in EVE Corporations, Alliances and Organizations Center

    Good morning, recruitment forum!

  • [SOHCO] Tight Knit Null for Adults in EVE Corporations, Alliances and Organizations Center

    Happy Friday, everyone! Cool

  • Looking for a chill corp in EVE Corporations, Alliances and Organizations Center

    I would suggest you look into one of our allies - maybe BLUEP or C.R.Y.

    Good luck!

    Good night, recruitment forums.

    Thanks Plyn!

    South of Heaven [SOHCO]

    Classy: We insist on mature members who demonstrate wit, humor and sportsmanship. No ignorant behavior toward others will be tolerated.

    Tight-Knit: We are part of an 12-year, multi-game community. As friend friends with deep roots, we have cultivated a collaborative, zero-drama atmosphere.

    Organized: We have seasoned leadership with proven a track record across multiple titles. Our decision-making is consistently transparent, thoughtful and well-planned.

    Entrepreneurial: We encourage members to be engaged, take risks, create content, and help us to build our presence in the game.

    Relaxed: We emphasize participation in fleets, but we respect real life priorities. We seek a balance between improvement and fun.

    Sovereign: We are committed to null-sec as the most unique and exciting way to experience EVE. We are a proud member of the Blades of Grass alliance. Read more about their philosophy here.

    Current Status:

    Last year, we were active participants in the war against the Goons and settled into their former stronghold. Our alliance occupies a truly choice pocket in Branch, with a Keepstar that serves as military hub for the region. We have an excellent industrial backbone and perhaps one of the best markets in all of null-sec. We recently repelled Triumvirate are currently between wars.

    We maintain a weekly rhythm of corp-led fleets, in order to develop our skills and tighten our social bonds. This includes two scheduled roams each week, as well as social mixers involving some combination of PvE and booze. In addition to SOHCO-generated content, the alliance and coalition provide fleets of every size, in every timezone, every day.

    Our corp takes pride in a reputation for hitting above our weight class - we maintain a lean roster of active pilots. One of our main goals is to continue building SOHCO's capital fleet. If you are a dread, faux or carrier pilot, or aspire to be one, please check us out! We will make capital ships available to you, or assist you in acquiring your own.

    Applicant Requirements & Next Steps:

    We prefer applicants who are USTZ, PvP-oriented and have some previous exposure to life outside of hi-sec. SOHCO hopes to see you in at least one fleet per week. We also expect active communication on our message board.

    That said, we do not see ourselves as "elite" - we are still learning (and making mistakes) every day! If you are a newer player with strong initiative, we will absolutely consider you.

    We would also love to have some miners join us, provided that you maintain a PvP presence too. We offer generous buybacks for ore and ice.

    If you are interested, I encourage you to get in touch with us by doing any or all of the following:


    • Join the channel “SOHCO Public” and have a chat.
    • Send me an eve-mail.
    • Register and post an introduction at sohguild.com.

  • Advanced Audio Settings Changes in EVE Information Center

    To be honest, for my first year or so in EVE I was one of the 91% who never fussed with the advanced sliders. But then I discovered that there was a way I could turn off the loud "station interior" sounds, which are especially obnoxious if you play multiple accounts (and one is docked). I became a fervent member of the 9% that day.

    Looking at the way you guys have grouped things, it seems pretty logical. EXCEPT for the one that matters to me, of course. My wanting station interior off on my docked account doesn't mean I don't want any "atmosphere" on my undocked account.

    So I think this change puts me back in the 91%. The advanced sliders aren't useful to me anymore, and I'm just going to live with being mildly annoyed at station interior sounds for the rest of my EVE career.

  • pyfa v1.29.4 - The Python Fitting Assistant in EVE Gameplay Center

    Hello. Thank you so much for maintaining this amazing tool. I don't know if the EVE Community could function without it.

    My installation seems to have encountered some problem. My "All 5" clone doesn't have all 5's. It's missing advanced weapon upgrades completely, and weapon upgrades is capped at 4. All of the buttons to edit or fix it are disabled. Can anything be done short of making my own "All 5 Copy"?

  • RLML and HML balance pass in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Overall - it is nice to see CCP working on missile balance. Some love to heavy missiles is welcome (though I think a light touch is best), and nerfs to RLML are long overdue.

    As to the specific changes

    1. As others have said, I think you need to start this balance pass with a review and adjustment of launcher PG requirements.

    2. As others have said, I think clip size is an important variable that you may be overlooking.

    3. Personally I agree with nerfing range. I understand why that bothers some people, as it does fundamentally change the capability of several hulls. But it makes sense to me conceptually that RLML should emphasize shorter range, burst and oppressive anti-support (without also being such a powerful anti-cruiser weapon).

    Fozzie, I think much of the recent changes and balance passes to the game have been great. With this one, it feels like you are trying too hard to be non-disruptive to current fits. I suggest you take the opportunity to step back and think conceptually about what you really want the RLML system to be.

    Thanks.

  • Returning player | 59m sp | LF PvP corp | WH / 0.0 in EVE Corporations, Alliances and Organizations Center

    Loved the post - appreciate when people take the time to convey what they want and who they are.

    I'd love to add you to our roster, but my corp is focused on USTZ. Would humbly suggest that you look into some of our allies, who have more of an EU presence: BLUEP or R3MUS. This alliance is very well-organized and just a great group of people. Fleets occur in every timezone, every day.

    Feel free to drop me a mail or hop in SOHCO Public if I can be of service. Best of luck in your search!

  • [SOHCO] Tight-Knit Null for Adults in EVE Corporations, Alliances and Organizations Center

    Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday. We've had a great response to our recent recruiting push - excited to get to know all my new pilots!

  • [SOHCO] Tight-Knit Null for Adults in EVE Corporations, Alliances and Organizations Center

    Sorry for the belated reply. Due to a recent deployment, we've had to ease up on our recruitment for now.

    I'm glad you were able to join a corp in our alliance with a stronger EUTZ base. Look forward to flying with you!

  • [SOHCO] Tight-Knit Null for Adults in EVE Corporations, Alliances and Organizations Center

    Another weekend is nearly gone. I'll be online for a bit this afternoon, if anyone would like to chat about SOHCO. :)
