Grand Theft Wormhole: The Aftermath

I think I expected things not to be normal for a few days. Robbing the corp was terribly exciting. Rarely do I wind up in that many random situations in the space of one day.

Diz wanted to hear what happened that night. I actually got on coms voluntarily to tell him.  He lamented that he missed it.  “I never get invited to these!” he said.  We had a good chat on coms as I moved Tengu and started trying to tally my haul.

Vov and I were on a buzzed, endorphin high from the entire thing. He wound up writing an eve-mail to the corporation to offer them their stuff back for ISK. I have no idea why he wrote it. I wasn't giving anything back and he had already broken most of the things down. Maybe he was going to see how far he could drag things along.

The following day, when he logged in the MOTD for the corporation channel had been changed"
"We have been robbed by a new recruit, See your mail and check standings. I wil be rebuilding the office and and I will be getting with you individually to asses the losses and begin helping to regain personal assets. The corp is now closed to recruiting obviously and we will be pushing a war dec against these ex-fatal ascension assholes. I'm getting with our sister corps and talking with the alliance as soon as my work hours permit."
War decing Team Liquid would be amusing. For one, they are not very active right now. Those that are active are mostly not in Team Liquid at the moment. It would be interesting for the wormhole corp to come and lay siege on them. It might get some of them to resub to amuse themselves. Supposedly there is a co-corp that will be contacted. We wait to see how events unfold. People do like their war decs.

The C3 corp contacted us and Vov sent them over to me. We chatted for a bit and they seem to be a very cool group of people. Hopefully, I have some new friends.  Their haul was around 4.5-5 billion with just under 500 billion in POS modules destroyed. They were debating doing more when the corp came online but someone deleted the bookmarks.

When the CEO of Vov’s new corp logged in, he wouldn't talk to Vov. He even ignored and blocked him after telling him to stop talking to people in chat. Vov, for someone as intolerant as he can be, can be amazingly chatty and likeable when he wants to be. The corp seemed to like him just fine and understand that this is Eve and their CEO didn’t do the proper checks. Vov belives that they have Stockholm syndrome. The two most blinged Tengu (one went to me and one to our new friends) belonged to one soul who only has 200m left in his wallet. However, the CEO has promised to replace everything himself out of pocket. Nice of him.

Most of my ISK intake was the Tengu. One has been sold to someone in THC2. One was stripped down and sent to Jita. One lives in my high sec hanger and I tickle its chin. He lives next to the Viator that I also stole. I always wanted a second. I decided to let Red Frog do the moving for me.  I broke things down into contracts and shipped them off to Jita. I decided that someone else could take the risk of moving a bit over two billion in loot.  Once they made it to Jita, I checked prices and firesold most of it. The difference between buy and sell prices were 1-2 million isk. For the high value items it was not worth my time to deal with the market wars in Jita for a million ISK.  I took a billion for my personal wallet and everything else has gone to TCS.

The T1 hulls all have sold at TCS.  Molden Heath is hungry for Drake hulls it seems. The random items will be sorted for their resale value at TCS, reusage value by me, or liquidated. I have a lot of missiles now as well. Vov is selling me a lot of his haul for TCS. He is very supportive of Retail by Piracy.


I've been chatting with one of the C3 members in THC2 public chat. Cool dude. I love meeting new people.

That is the side of the evil thieves. Life is normal. Taking things is part of what we do. It is fascinating in its own way. The entire concept of 'stealing' is supposed to be bad. Yet, inside of my social circles it is a fine and normal thing. I'm sure there are some people who will keep their distance, unhappy with my choices. 

That is there call. There is a path that we all walk. I cannot walk everyone's path and make every person happy with me. Those people will accept me for what I am (Pirate Queen) or they will not. For some, this will devalue me as a person. For others, it is just another adventure in a video game.

And for the voyeurs, I hope you've enjoyed it.

  1. It was 500 million* worth of pos mods destroyed. Total haul of ~14-15b (5b for myself, 4b for sugar and around 5b to the c3 corp).

    To put that in perspective, thats roughly 30 plex total. So the ceo is somewhat deep in the hole right now if he intended to replace everything that was taken/destroyed.

    1. Yeah, that's somewhere around $500 worth of PLEX. I really need to find a CEO like that then "lose" a lot of stuff...

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

Have you done your Eve Vegas Survey?

I did attend Eve Vegas to the shock of many. I'd already paid for it and allotted the time. It seemed that I should go.


I went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover as well. This is not the space to discuss those amazing places or my new Camera.

Eve Vegas was a bit harder for me to go to then I expected. I've detached from Eve for the most part these past months. It is very easy to be angry, frustrated, and bitter about the past that I lived on. The game, its development, and the players move on while I find myself emotionally stuck. That emotional stickiness does not need to be given to everyone else. Part of experiencing it was shielding people from it. But, as I accepted my items and stared down the poor gentleman that tried to put a wristband around my wrist, I realized that I wasn't in as good of a place as I had hoped to be.

That is where the Survey comes in. There are a few things that I could say and did say. A few of the questions made me want to say a bit more.

One was …

Your ideal roadmap

To try to be a bit more interesting then blogging yet another daily list of summit meetings, how about a question?

In the producer session, as we try to figure out how to fix and improve our communication with teams and how we figure out who should be gone to for features and changes, we discussed the road map.

We discussed what 'our' ideal roadmap would be. This breaks down into the individual roadmaps for each member of the CSM. After all, we are individiuals and we have different dreams for Eve. We have different goals and features that we want to move forward or go back to.

How close are we to what CCP is looking at and planning? We discussed their safety mesures to weigh the value of features. What will this feature do for Eve? It is not enough to have an ideal road map of things you want. Those things have to have value and that value needs to be enough to dedicate the time to the feature.

Do you have an ideal roadmap? A path for Eve to head in the next year or two once …
