I think we can all agree that Toot is the only piece of evidence I need to support that claim.


Actually, my experiences with Toot in-game were all rather positive. He taught me a lot about conducting myself in lowsec so now I know how to keep tabs on what's happening around me and not to get blown up through idiocy (though it still happens, like the most recent being forgetting to turn my d-scanner back to 360 degrees while in a FW plex; I deserved to get blown up at that point).

The shit-talking that goes on in Eve is usually just a half-hearted attempt to extract tears. Often, if you don't give your instigator access to tears and instead engage in intelligent conversation, they'll react in kind.

New players arent ostracised at all. Just you.
You wont even give people your API ffs how can you expect any decent corp to accept you.

Also stop expecting things to be handed to you and dont cry about stuff when it isnt easy. Its a computer game, dont take it so seriously.

I've talked to multiple corps that wanted an API key to determine if I was a spy.
Asking for an API key implies a level of distrust in the corporate environment. That's a precedent that colors my expectations of the mentality of the corporation and its alliance. I didn't say I was knocking on players who ARE willing to share API information. But I'm not going to do it myself, because that's not the environment I'm looking to join.

I have no idea where this is coming from. I didn't ask anyone for anything, aside from a group of people to hang out and just play the damn game with.

Well just know that every corp ever is going to ask you for an API key. Some will ask for more information than others, but it's a ubiquitous practice.

There isn't a level of distrust in the corporate environment, by the way. There's a level of distrust towards those outside of the corporate environment. Spies do exist. People are trying to steal from them. That level of paranoia is justified.

They distrust those outside their corporation precisely so they can trust those inside their corporation.

Once they establish trust with you, then you'll be fine. It's always a walled-garden philosophy in Eve. Getting in is difficult, but once you're in you're golden.

There's a history of people hopping from corp to corp building what looks like a nice resume. These people are effectively deep-cover spies who try to get into director roles and steal everything (or, into capital fleets and sabotage capital fleets before fights).

Any corp that is competent will ask for a API upon recruitment, most wanting the full API. It's the first line of defense to keep out corp thieves or spies. When looking at your API they will be checking things like what alt characters you have and what corps they're in. They might dive deeper and check your alts past corps too or they can check your in-game bank transfers. They can find out who's been giving you money or who you're giving money too and back check those characters. They will also check killboards and forums for any clues. If any of their cross references find a known spy or pirate corp, they terminate you.

There's ways around that of course and good spies and thieves will find a way. Most spend months setting up their next heist. Most will make a new fresh character with ties to no one. Then launder money through the market too keep it clean and fund it. Slowly gaining the trust of the corp or alliance until they steal enough to make it worth it.

So yeah, spying is very real and there's a reason they don't trust you and want your API. I know because thats how I made my ISK. I stole pretty much all of it from corps or doing side scams. It's well documented, check out my videos here:

I inserted a spy and stole a carrier
Created a fake corp and joined a alliance...then stole all their assets
Convinced a freighter to join our hauler convoy...hijacked him...and stole all his stuff

I have some other EvE videos too just browse my channel.
*end shameless plug*

TenTron, you still playing? I see Prons on killboards all the time, so the corp is still active.

My account is still active, I just hit 100mil SP about 6 months ago but I haven't played in about 2 years. I log in to talk with my friends, hear the gossip, and read emails. I haven't PvP'd or scammed in forever.

I love the game but just burned out on it. It was my main game for like 5+ years and I probably have thousands of hours on it. I'll will come back to it at some point and thats basically why my guy is still training.

Project Nemesis is still flying and killing stuff. Some war decs and random low sec/0.0 roams is mainly what they do. That remote rep nerf that changed how nuetral rep worked pissed a lot of PRONS off and some are taking vactions. It made them fight a fair fight and who wants fair fights?

Because ECM is useful against smart bombs. ;P

Burn Jita. Every year we gather everyone together and kill freighters.

If you dont know - in high security space you cant kill anything without NPC police killing you *almost* instantly.

We get 100 dudes in high damage cheap ships and kill expensive cargo ships worth hundreds of times the cost of our entire fleet.

We had 4 fleets up at peak.

FANFEST ROUNDUP:

They revealed their roadmap for the next 12months, 3 years and 5 years.

12 months:

Balancing Battlecruisers and Battleships
New Battlecruisers
Full dust integration
Scanning and exploration overhaul
(summer expansion)

Pve dust stuff
Your own bases fully compatible with Eve
Moving dust to nullsec to affect player built planetary infrastructure

3 years: This is where it gets really interesting.

Boarding actions with Dust mercs in ship to ship combat.
New fighter class with OCULUS support - being able to fight on an interceptor/bomber level like a flight sim rather than the captain of a ship AND being able to transfer to atmospheric flight to support dust mercs.
Planetary colonisation with space elevators and dust integration

5 years:

Walking in stations with OCULUS
Combat in stations with oculus and dust

Walking in stations was postponed following the Jita riots because everyone thought it was fu­cking gay, but this new OCULUS system is insane and being developed outside so it isnt taking away from Eve like the previous iteration.

Trailer for next expansion:
