As we’re talking about market tools - how about the most versatile and one of the longest running one:


Thanks for the info!
I tried that goldenjoysticks site but it’s very slow to roll down the pages so I gave up.

Thanks again CCP for another “week” of Eve Online intensity . I particularly enjoyed your highlighting some more valuable information about mining. And the links that you included to the excellent “Saarith’s Mining Guide” and also to the “Guide: Overview of Level 4 Mining Missions.” I see everyone’s incredibly hard work at keeping Eve relevant and thriving and evolving. And I’m constantly amazed at everything incredible coming from the player community. And also too at all the never-ending hard work that CCP invests in all of us.

Sometimes Eve seems more real to me than reality. Whether that’s says something good or something bad about real life on Earth today could perhaps be argued or debated. But what wonders to be seen at the level of immersion offered by CCP and all their dedicated employees at this unreality. To anyone that wants to finally escape gravity and fly off away into the furthest reaches of the unreality universe.


What’s the ETA on “Move to PLEX Vault” finally being ■■■■■■■ fixed?

So moon mining no longer looks like “pew pew pew… pew pew”?
10/10 ING

Thank you for your weekly efforts, CCP Phantom!

Didn’t find any mistakes today. :blush:


How do you block a dev so you don’t have to see tripe like this?

You could just leave the thread again and ignore it very politely?
Just a suggestion.

But it’s actually a good question if it’s possible to block someone on this forum.


Thanks for posting another great condensed summary of ‘This Week In Eve’.

Now I understand CCP wanting to promote more Mining in Eve but wasn’t this guide already featured a few weeks ago in the Guides And Community Info section ?

Working on that.


The EvE Story is using Voice over from Harry Potter.

So what happened to EveGate, closed on Wed. 27-Sept, not mentioned in current ‘this week in EVE’

I am delighted to see that the content of the summary is not instantly forgotten but sticks around a bit. Yes, I mentioned the mining guide in a previous summary, but now Shriven Intaki published as follow-up the result of a 1-month long research showing details about each mining mission. That was worth pointing to.


@CCP_Phantom, Where has this weekly summary gone? D:

@Adan_Dimaloun The weekly summary will be back! :smiley: The previous summaries got cancelled due to focus on EVE Vegas and the Lifeblood expansion.
