Thrilling Internet Spaceship Stories! February 7, 2013Posted by Wilhelm Arcturus in entertainment, EVE Online.
Goonswarm has put together a new guide for new players and made it available publicly in .pdf form.
Traditionally, the new player portions of their Wiki (which is a gold mine of information, lore, and bee caricatures that I have spent hours pouring over) has been viewable by all. Their recent effort to update their guide for new players took an odd turn and eventually came out in the form of a pulp science fiction magazine, complete with ads and tales of the astounding.
The .pdf is available for download here.
While oriented towards Goonswarm, the whole thing is worth a look whether you are a newbie, an old hand, or have no real interest in EVE. Better than Breathtaking Dogfights.

The order of upcoming cataclysmic player events in EVE Online looks to be coming in the following order:
- Destroy Jita
- Hulkageddon V
- The Economic Aftermath
The first two you have probably heard about one way or another. The third might be news to you.
More after the cut since this whole thing became much longer than I anticipated.
Have the Goons Wrecked the EVE Economy Yet? October 30, 2011Posted by Wilhelm Arcturus in entertainment, EVE Online.
Sure, The Mittani brings up ganking regularly on Twitter.
So what is going on? Have oxytopes quadrupled in price as predicted? Are the Goons having an impact?
We’re going to wreck the entire EVE economy September 30, 2011Posted by Wilhelm Arcturus in entertainment, EVE Online.
It’s time to inflict Goonswarm’s rage on Empire once again. Jihadswarm was a way for Goons to cause suffering and rage in unsuspecting pubbies, who (naturally) had no idea that they could be hurt in empire space. Unfortunately, Jihadswarm had few lasting effects on the EVE universe. By hitting everywhere, it failed to hit hard enough in any one spot. That all has changed now, as the finance team has come up with a way to hit a small slice of empire space, and yet have a much larger impact. The isolated pain of random pubbies is not enough. It is time for Goonswarm to hurt everyone in EVE, and so reap the misery of a wronged universe.
I knew it had been too quiet in EVE.
CCP hands out new captain’s quarters.
The Mittani throws the mob red meat.
Goonswarm in Esteldin! August 5, 2010Posted by Wilhelm Arcturus in entertainment, Humor, Lord of the Rings Online.

Doesn’t look all that fearsome, does he, standing around in the crafting hall at Esteldin?
Still, what could he be thinking? Is he planning to infiltrate us even now?
Not the most role play compatible name I’ve seen certainly.
He’ll probably disappear only to be replaced a short time later by a character name Goonwaffe due to political intrigue.
EVE Online Makes the BBC February 24, 2009Posted by Wilhelm Arcturus in entertainment, EVE Online.

The defeat of BoB in EVE Online was big enough to make it to the BBC it seems.
The story is short and to the point. The best quote for me was from Mittani:
“We don’t have any advantages, so we can’t obey your stupid ‘space bushido’. We’re going to spy, we’re going to use defectors, we’re going to lie, cheat, steal and be bastards.”
But can you say “bastards” on the BBC, or is that reserved for the web site?
Thanks to my friend Steven for IM’ing me with the link!
