Drone Regions Could Suffer Without Extracted Alloys

  • YC114-04-25

    The Drone Regions have undergone a dramatic reshaping as CONCORD begin issuing bounties upon the destruction of Rogue Drones. In line with this change, valuable extracted drone alloys are no longer available. Zazhas, an officer within Ethereal Dawn [ED], believes that these changes will bring about “more co-operation" between miners and combat pilots. When it comes to manufacturing, he feels that while transport of goods can be problematic in null-sec, these changes may require a few more imports. [...]

        The Mittani Faces Outcry

        • YC114-03-27

          ​ Jita, The Forge - Protests are taking place following the recent words spoken by The Mittani, the re-elected CSM Chair. He was recently quoted saying: "Incidentally if you want to make the guy kill himself his name is [Removed]... He has his own corp... find him." Speaking to the capsuleer, however, he finds these comments and the aggression "unprovoked". A number of capsuleers have called for the resignation of The Mittani. While he has many supporters, there seems to be those who feel that as a [...]

          Pandemic Legion Titan is Destroyed

          • YC114-03-20

            Amamake, Heimatar - A few nights ago, a mixed fleet of Faction Warfare capsuleers, mostly in dreadnaughts and battleships, ambushed and destroyed a Pandemic Legion titan in Amamake. The planning itself was done in secrecy – only the planners themselves, Tekitha and Lock Out of Shadows of the Federaion and First General of Wolfsbrigade, along with a few trusted aides were informed of the plan, with the hope that it would help keep details of the attack from Pandemic Legion’s spy network. Most of the [...]

                DED Report: Red vs. Blue Sees Unprecedented Growth

                • YC114-03-09

                  The long running capsuleer organisation Red vs. Blue has over the past week seen unprecedented growth, increasing in membership by over a third. This news has been met with enthusiasm by the industrialists of their home region of Lonetrek, where demand for ships, modules and ammunition is at an all-time high. DED records for February show the organisation to be behind more ship losses within New Eden than any other, destroying 10,500 vessels that month alone. Red Vs. Blue is dedicated to maintaining a [...]

                      YC 113.10.01 - YC 113.10.31 The situation this month was similar to September; whilst most sovereignty warfare occurred in the Catch region, Delve saw the highest level of ship losses. In Catch, further stations were lost by Against All Authorities (AAA) and their allies to the attackers, though AAA were able to re-secure multiple systems after losing them, namely N-8BZ6, YHN-3K and AOK-WQ. Fighting in Delve has reached new heights, with 20,678 capsuleer vessels destroyed there this month. This is the [...]

                        YC 113.11.01 - YC 113.11.30 Further fighting in Delve this month saw the Goonswarm Federation alliance capture several more stations, taking five from Brick Squad. Morsus Mihi and Brick Squad seem to be drawing their attempt to take hold of parts of Delve to a close, with their activity in the region being far lower than in previous months. Goonswarm scored 1,790 kills through the month, with Delve seeing 15,272 capsuleer vessel losses. Whilst lower than previous months, this level is high in [...]

                          YC 113.09.01 - YC 113.09.30 September saw continued pressure from White Noise, Red Alliance and their allies being put on Against All Authorities (AAA). AAA lost several stations, with a total of 16 stations falling to the attackers this month. Despite the amount of territory exchanging hands, the number of capsuleer ships being destroyed in the process was relatively low, totalling only 8,765 for the month compared to 19,420 in August. Delve however has regained the top spot that it had held for [...]

                            YC 113.08.01 - YC 113.08.31 August saw a large number of the alliances that make up the Drone Region Forces (DRF) coalition launch an assault on the Against All Authorities (AAA) alliance homeland of Catch. The key systems of HED-GP and GE-8JV have fallen to the DRF, with fighting causing a colossal 19,420 capsuleer vessels and structures to be destroyed by other capsuleers in Catch this month. This level of fighting is the highest seen in the Catch region since CONCORD records began in late YC109, [...]

                              YC 113.07.01 - YC 113.07.31 This month saw elements of the DRF, primarily NC., Pandemic Legion and Raiden launch an attack on the Goonswarm Federation home region, Deklein. The primary goal is believed to have been to acquire a grasp on as many technetium rich moons as possible due to their immense income potential. The initial launch of the campaign saw limited success; however the attackers were rapidly repelled. This conflict saw Deklein increase in terms of numbers of vessels destroyed from 4,529 [...]

                                YC 113.06.01 - YC 113.06.30 This month saw a colossal swing in the balance of power within the null security regions, with the group of alliances known as the "Northern Coalition" (NC) almost entirely losing their grasp over their holdings of several years. This sudden collapse has taken place after months of warring with the DRF (Drone Region Forces) coalition, resulting in the regions of Tribute, Branch and Tenal changing hands. The focal point of this collapse was Tribute, which as the home of the [...]

                                  New Eden - A group of capsuleers, led by Krissada, are attempting to disrupt the “ISK farming” currently occurring at Sansha Incursion sites. They are planning to destroy Sansha motherships as soon as they arrive through their wormholes and in doing so hope to cut back the amount of ISK earned by capsuleers who attend the incursions simply to collect bounties on the lesser Sansha forces in the area. Krissada is apparently aggrieved that "bears" are able to "farm" for ISK in high-sec Incursions with [...]

                                          9UY4-H, Providence. A few weeks ago an eight-man corporation known as Trzciciele Kawy planted Sovereignty Blockade Units (SBUs) at all the stargates in the system of 9UY4-H in Providence. The system is currently the home of Chribba, one of New Eden's most beloved capsuleers. Chribba has pledged to keep the station - known as Chribba's Cottage - open to the general public for as long as he holds sovereignity there, making it rare among capsuleer-owned stations.

                                            New Eden - In a startling change of pace, EVE University [E-UNI] has announced a temporary suspension of their Wartime Standard Operating Procedure [SOP]. This policy, which forbids ratting, mining and hauling while under wardec, has served to protect many new pilots from losing ships and modules they really couldn't afford to lose. According to Irdalth Delrar, "the reasons for the SOP have faded into legend" and many new pilots suffer under the restrictions, so therefore came the decision to [...]

A capsuleer task force quickly assembled and responding managed to destroy Citizen Astur’s Revenant, after which Citizen Arson re-emerged from the wormhole piloting a Hel Supercarrier and re-engaged the capsuleer [...]

Weeks ago Fuzzy Logec CEO Nekumi negotiated with Akara Ito of the Goonswarm Federation and believed that she had "bought 3JN9-Q, O-2RNZ and AGG-NR” for 30bn ISK and an agreement to supply Goonswarm with a number of capital ships per month. Goonswarm had even offered Nekumi an escort fleet to keep Fuzzy Logec's [...]

The channel, named "SCC-Lounge", was created by Caleb Ayrania. He revealed what goes on inside the channel: “A lot of rather serious talks about New Eden’s market often go on, and we do try to offer a lot of help to upcoming merchants when they decide to try their legs in ‘the seas of maritime’ trading.” Caleb also told of his future plans for the [...]

The corollary to such large fleet engagements is the occasional loss of ships, this has given rise to 3rd party looting and salvage operations. One of these pilots, who prefers to remain anonymous, was observed during the battle of Altrinur. When speaking to him, he was very confident that given proper piloting skills, “correctly manoeuvring [through a large fleet battle] is not dangerous at all". He went on [...]

After several hours of battering away at the wormhole with ECM and drones, capsuleers were taken by complete surprise when a small fleet of frigates belonging to Sansha's Nation emerged. Reacting to the sudden threat, they fought back the first wave which was left stranded as the mysterious wormhole closed behind them. Moments later, two more wormholes spawned on the spot, releasing first a lone [...]

Morsus Mihi, once a cornerstone alliance of the Northern Coalition, saw its territory much reduced and the coalition effectively eradicated by a sustained assault from the so-named "Drone Region Forces" earlier this year.

At approximately 19:15 New Eden time, Slave Ation09, piloting a Revenant Nation super carrier, invaded the solar system with a fleet of supporting Sansha Nation battleships and cruisers. At 20:00 in New Eden, a fleet of over 40 capsuleers warped to the hostile vessels and engaged the Sansha forces. More than 100 capsuleers and rising from across New Eden are forming up in [...]

The competition asked capsuleers to look at a provided image from New Eden and write a short story on how they interpreted the picture.

The event, which is also known as "Frigfry Fridays", will be held on the first friday of each month in the Amamake system.

On being victor, Nausea said: “It still takes a little getting used to, that I managed to take the crown in the end, but it feels amazing and strangely satisfying.” Fame has come with a price as Nausea conceded that there have already been a few capsuleers eyeing up her title "with a hungry gleam”.

No flagships were fielded today, but several large ISK offers to throw matches kept things interesting.

This also applied to lower ranking participants who saw no need to put in much effort as they were already out of the finals based on points; the last match of the day [...]
