The Rising of a Corp Thief

"Hi, you killed my hoarder a while ago. I'm interested in robbing my corp and becoming a pirate."

And that is how I wound up helping someone get the help they needed to rob their corp.

I didn't remember him. A quick killboard search and I did. He was a Hoarder running distribution missions in low sec mostly AFK out of boredom. I had called out his intel to the boys because Diz had me ahead scouting and acting like bait. They picked him up a few gates later and popped his ship. I sent him a conversation about the event to make sure he was not a newbie. That particular night was a night of autopiloting everything into low sec. It turned out he was not. He was good natured about it. We had a good chat, and I thought nothing else of it.

Therefore, the conversation request surprised me. However, I was willing to run with it. I made it clear that I'd happily help but I was not making any promises to enroll anyone into my corporation.

What I did was establish the basics. High sec industry corp. He couldn't fly the Mackinaw and Hulk in the ship maintenance array of the POS. I started to explain basic POS rules to him while I called Vov (making sure to use extra Vs). Vov responded, I dropped him into the conversation and let him take over.

As he headed to assist, he taught him what to do, what to take, and made him work through a series of steps to clean everything out. He had him empty to POS, take every ship he could, empty the corporate hangers, access the wallet tab that he had. Once that was accomplished we got the password changed and Vov helped to scoop ships.

All of that was accomplished over about an hour or so. What was next was the corporate hangar array, the ship array, and the labs. It was a stationless system so the tower was running blue prints in the lab.

"Once you do this, there is no going back." Vov warned him.

"I came to Eve for the pirate things, the thefts, the dark stuff," was the response.

"Make sure you have plenty of ammo," Vov responded.

They took down the arrays and the labs. He was rewarded with a few hundred million more in loot and some researched blueprints. The total theft time was around two hours. I was bouncing about, tackling things at the time. It was interesting to see Vov work him through it.

When they were done, Vov docked up with him and traded him everything.

"What do you want in payment?"

"Nothing," he responded.  "Now, remember you can hunt down and kill your corpmates still."

And thus we left him. He joined my public chat and plans to go off to FW and move onto piracy past that.

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

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. …

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …
