    • YC120-08-08

      Capsuleer forces of the North and Imperial Legacy clashed last Wednesday in the system of X47L-Q in Pure Blind over the armor timer of a Keepstar citadel. The Keepstar, which had been reinforced a day earlier, is a major staging point for Northern efforts in the region against Imperial Legacy.

      Interview with Lasker Emanuel

      • YC120-03-16

        An interview with Lasker Emanuel regarding capsuleer vs. capsuleer combat " Something about being perched on that edge makes me feel alive." With over 5,000 star systems and several dozen trillion inhabitants, the New Eden Cluster is rich with opportunities for cunning entrepreneurs to hunt for fame, notoriety, ancient relics or trade goods. For some capsuleers, the cluster may even give the impression of a sandbox on a playground, where the strong prey on the weak and the only rule is that there are [...]

        Revenant Down in Providence

        • YC120-01-04

          On the 17th of December YC119, at roughly 13:50 a Revenant supercarrier belonging to Mister Meseeks Lookatme was destroyed in the Providence region when it unknowingly cynoed into a defensive trap. Providence is an area famed for the welcoming attitude residents have for new Capsuleers operating in their region. Provibloc residents allow unknown Capsuleers to come and go in their space freely, as long as they do not harm any of the residents. Despite this known policy, a small hunting party decided to [...]

          Revenant Down in Aunenen

          • YC119-11-30

            At roughly 12:35 on 12th of November, YC119, a Revenant super carrier was spotted warping to a safe spot from the Aunenen free port citadel. Soon after, the Revenant was scanned down and destroyed. The Revenant is a rare vessel as it is a supercarrier never designed or built by any of the four major factions in New Eden. Capsuleers who set their sights on obtaining one would have to pit themselves against the True Sansha incursions that specifically target lowsec space and hope to pick up a blueprint [...]

                Possibly one of the largest battles ever seen in HighSec space occurred on 21st of August YC119.

After other alliances of the Imperium coalition had followed Goonswarm Federation's lead, Pandemic Legion [-10.0], an alliance closely connected to Pandemic Horde, reacted as well and declared [...]

                        The Imperium is a large coalition comprised of multiple alliances led by Goonswarm Federation. The coalition currently resides in the Delve region of null security space. Since they moved into Delve, they have been mining constantly using the powerful Rorqual-class industrial capital to eat their way through asteroid belts all over the region. The Rorqual while it is an important asset for any mining fleet, can also be a hindrance. The Rorqual's industrial core when active, provides a very large boost [...]

                        • YC119-08-10

                          The Keepstar-class citadel is the most sought-after citadel in the whole of New Eden. Developed by Upwell Consortium they are extremely powerful but come with a very large price tag. A Keepstar will cost you around 200 billion ISK and are the only structure large enough to dock Super carriers and Titans. There were only four known citadels in the depths of wormhole space; two belonging to Hard Knocks Citizens [HKRAB], one belonging to Lazerhawks [LZHX] and one belonging to Inner Hell [-INHE].

                              Providence, New Eden - Ten years ago, in early February of YC109, a small group of pilots came together with the idea that they could make Sukanen, a low security system, safe from 'pirate' activity. FuriousPig and Irons of IronPig [IRPG] and Dreamy of Mystic Lion Hearts [-MLH-] formed Sev3rance [-7-] with the hopes that they could manage active aggression through the standings system of NRDS [Not Red, Don't Shoot]. Although the prevailing attitude from outsiders was that the program could never [...]

It has extremely powerful webbing and capacitor draining technology. The Caedes also boasts powerful hacking technology. Anyone wanting to add a Caedes to their collection will be expecting to have to pay around 140 [...]

We, at Interstellar Correspondents, approached several capsuleers with for their opinions on the coronation ceremony.
