They can do it!

The Women of EVE and CCP specifically. We always hear about the “hostile” environment for females in EVE online, and how the 4% women is very low.

You ain’t seen nothing yet!

Project Discovery have now had a bit of time out in the wild. (ed. first blog post is out : Post I ) As expected the EVE community mistreated the “hamsters” even though CCP and MMOS were warned and asked a few times, if they were ready for the potential popularity. Thus the first few…

Geckos and Quafe and Panic, Oh My!

  New Eden awoke yesterday morning to a mild outbreak of panic on the markets, fueled by a single screenshot on r/eve.  As the EUTZ players read the news over their morning coffee and cornflakes, mixed responses began to flow in, was it a hoax, or was it true, and what should people do with…

Make Mine Meta

A certain CSM candidate have repeatedly been referencing the “main character” in “One Night in Bangkok”, with the view from the top and the different game he plays.

Voting season is about to close and we will be inaugurating the new group we will call the CSM 11. Its been an interesting season of propaganda and personal soapboxing, as always, but I was particularly triggered by the hat-gons mood this year. The field had a nice range of different candidates from the Imperium,…

WiS: A Vision that was lost

We are now coming up on a big  crossroad for EVE Online, and for CCP as a developer. I have speculated and shared my thoughts with many players, and seem to often be in an optimist minority. I decided that I should share a few things and review where we were, are, and could be…

Elliot Waves and Market Wizardry

In the world of the trade wizard the spreadsheets are alchemy and the TA (Technical Analysis) is scrying. Predicting people is bordering on impossible, this especially true when obfuscated by anonymity and resulting absence of social rules and conventions. In business the term “in good faith” is supposed to govern rules of behavior and reduce…
