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.

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 …
