Eve Parodied to Rap Music: Bittervet Paradise

Warning: Blame Major J Silva. This is what the CSM does to some of us...

"Bittervet Paradise"

As I jump through the cyno to make a valley of death
I take a look at my corp and realize their bittervets,
Cause we've been dropping and jumping so long,
That even my holding alt thinks my bitter is strong
But I ain't ever dropped on a fleet that didn't deserve it
We be dropping cuz we punks? You know its not heard of
Better watch that ship you engage and what you try to gank
Or you and your fleet will be wrecks in space.
I really to bail by I gotta go
As they pop, my depot's already dropped cuz I'm not a fool
Im the kinda pilot that the newbies wanna be like
In my Nyx at the POS waiting for the bait to light.

Been hot dropping all damn night, living the bittervet paradise
Been hot dropping all damn night, living the bittervet paradise
Keep dropping every fight, living the bittervet paradise
Keep dropping every fight, living the bittervet paradise

Look at the station that I be facing
I can't dock in that place, I'm stuck out in space
So I gotta be cautious and watching local spikes
To many drops in the night, got me waiting more fights
I'm a million skillpoint capsuleer with ISK in my hand
Got my super logged in and a beacon for my fleet
I'm a pimped out officer fit bitter vet
And my corp is all the same and we got all the right tools
Death ain't nothing but a cyno away,
I'm dropping on everything, frigs or falcons you could say
We're 23 but can our fleet become 24?
The way the pings been looking I don't know.

Tell me why are you so blind to see
That we're fishing for a fleet for a gank to be

Been hot dropping all damn night, living the bittervet paradise
Been hot dropping all damn night, living the bittervet paradise
Keep dropping every fight, living the bittervet paradise
Keep dropping every fight, living the bittervet paradise

Power projection and the ISK, ISK and the ozone
Hauler after hauler, cyno after cyno
Everyone's been jumping, but half of them ain't looking
at where the beacons go, and who might be lighting, soon
They say we gotta watch and that someone will teach us
If they can't kill me now how will they reach us?
Their corp can't. That corp won't
Smack up in local, that's why I go and jump out, fool

Been hot dropping all damn night, living the bittervet paradise
Been hot dropping all damn night, living the bittervet paradise
Keep dropping every fight, living the bittervet paradise
Keep dropping every fight, living the bittervet paradise

Tell me why are you so blind to see
That we're fishing for a fleet for a gank to be

  1. Billion skill point pilot? No way a million skill point pilot would be dropping supers. But a billion SP would make a VERY bitter bittervet.

  2. If we're poking fun at this song, here's a parody from EQ2.

  3. I played with this one some time ago... I just wish I could put it to music but I can't carry a tune in a sack...

  4. Meh, as parodies of "Gangsta's Paradise" go, this is not one of the better ones out there. There are just too many places where the syllable count doesn't fit the rhythm, and that makes it a bit awkward.

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 …
