Eve Blog Banter #7

Welcome to the seventh installment of the EVE Blog Banter , the monthly EVE Online blogging extravaganza created by CrazyKinux . The EVE Blog Banter involves an enthusiastic group of gaming bloggers, a common topic within the realm of EVE Online, and a week to post articles pertaining to the said topic. The resulting articles can either be short or quite extensive, either funny or dead serious, but are always a great fun to read! Any questions about the EVE Blog Banter should be directed here . Check out other EVE Blog Banter articles at the bottom of this post!

This month's topic comes to us from CrazyKinux, and he asks: "What 3 things haven't you done in EVE and why? Would you be willing to try one day? Why so? Why not?"

1) Scamming - While I accept that the game allows it I find it hard to subvert my own personality to take advantage of people in scams. Along the same line, Corp theft, even from truly horrible corps and CEOs, is something I can't see myself doing unless it was part of a dedicated operation to infiltrate and take down an enemy.

2) Command Ships - Although in Eve for over 2.5 years only now am I training for this class of ships. I skipped them for several reasons: expensive, role mostly covered by other vessels, and training Battlecruisers V is a dead end (besides command ships) while training Battleships V opened up a variety of ships such as Black Ops, Marauders, and Capital ships.

3) Moon mining - I've always wanted to try moon mining but the opportunity has never provided itself in a steady framework where I had the time and resources to dedicate to it. I've always been tied up with invention and manufacturing. Perhaps someday I'll find the time to set up a POS at a moon with something worth mining.
Latest list of participants:


  1. Likewise on the scamming. I've assisted in a corp theft a friend was pulling off, but my moral stance on stuff like that's the same as yours.

    People say it's just a game, you can do anything you want, but you still need to be true to yourself.

  2. No scamming, no! :P

    Good luck on the CS side, I find they are such great ships and I hope you do too!
