For some reason, I struggle to keep track of what rats are in what region, or to find a good single page source for that information. So, here’s a dump of that information in two formats:Continue reading
tl;dr – Be excited about finding abandoned structures. Be potentially excited about reinforced structures.Continue reading
What do we mean when we talk about AUTZ, EUTZ, USTZ?
EVE time zones roughly line up with peak playtime for that time zone. Since most people have 9-5 jobs that’s basically local evening hours.Continue reading
Wanting to convert Loyalty Points to ISK-equivalents? No problem, this is a quick three step process:
- First, make sure the items you’re purchasing with Loyalty Points is a good investment. Use the Fuzzwork LP store search page (https://www.fuzzwork.co.uk/lpstore/).
- Second, purchase any necessary items at a major trade hub (because the prices at the LP station will be stupid).
- Then, go to the station and purchase the item.
Unfortunately, the in-game interface for finding a station belonging to a particular NPC Corporation is a bit clunky. Here are two out-of-game tools to help.
Itemdrop.net’s Station Search (higher complexity)

There is no asset safety in wormhole space.
But, there are ways to keep assets safe(r).Continue reading

While in fleet, you can right click the squad commander and add the entire squad to your watch list, in addition to drag and drop from the fleet window.
Thanks to Roboboy for this TIL.
Dropping this here so I quit losing it! Also looking for a more current guide to rolling wormholes with battleships, as I think there may be some applicable changes to prop mods and Higgs rigs.
Learning to EVE turned three today. It’s been sadly neglected this last year, but I was surprised to see a pretty consistent stream of traffic despite the low level of recent activity. I’m super happy that people still find some of what I’ve learned helpful!
I’ve been really busy with RL, after a sudden and unexpected change in my employment situation, which upset the apple cart a bit. Blogging took more time and energy than I could muster between trying to pick up a few bucks here and there, getting acclimated to a new job, etc. I still enjoy writing for EVE Onion News, and even log in occasionally to blow something up (thank you Blackout!) or to get blown up (argh.. seriously… I turned off my torpedo launchers when I tried to overheat).
Things are settling down to a new normal, so I think now’s the time to get back at it. I have some videos ready for edits, and a few articles wanting to be written that are insufficiently snarky for EVE Onion. 😉
See you soon!
