So, anything interesting happening on the eve map? I was thinking I might get a Cov ops frig and sniff around the war areas to see can I spot a fight or 2.

Well there's definitely fights, judging by the various Reddit posts.  Horde Fleet vs. Karma Fleet (basically the newbies in newbie ships going at each other) seems to be the latest.  One guy in a 1.5B officer-fit Loki decided to hot-drop some ratter; tackled him, pushed his cyno button, and called it in, only to discover he was in high-sec when Concord showed up.  Fun reading material.

Just read about the dead titans on TheMittani. Probably not the financial hit it was a few years ago, but still. Ow.

Best place to see fights is to hang out in Saranen and watch things die on the station undock.  Otherwise, it's really hit or miss when and where combat happens.  The majority of the sov work is being done by Australians at the moment.

People use Talo's, Catalysts and apparently stealth bombers though those could have just been used for wardecced targets.

Edit: All of Deklein has been taken but they still hold out in Pure Blind and parts of Fade for the moment.

What is Eve?

Itís a good spaceships game played on the internet you should come play it with us.

Who Should You Play It With?

I said you should play it with us but we should get to know each other a little more, first. That way we can better understand your needs.

Do you love to log in and afk rat for five hours of each evening? Do you want nothing more than to be an anonymous fleet member amidst a thousand others only three of whom even know you exist? Do you live to click a link that makes you a slightly better statistic amidst a sea of management analysis? Did you pay ten dollars just for the privilege of mournfully trudging your way through painstakingly making 50 posts in three months just so you could rat in some space that the dumbasses went and lost anyway? Are you the kind of person who likes needing space support groups to soothe your space nerves?

Wrong guys.

Alternatively, do you want to be one of a few dozen people roaming around together, probably drunk, because it is fun to be with your friends in space? Do you want to be able to link particularly awful Landsknecht posts in fleet chat and not have 239 people out of 255 find that Lowtax wonít let them read it? Do you want to be space-rich beyond your wildest dreams? Well we can arrange all of these except the last one.

This is your chance to be in at the beginning of something new. Something exciting. Something potentially very stupid indeed.

Causing quite the kerfuffle on r/Eve right now, along with the SA threads.

I went down to Saranen last night, and there was 438 odd in local with a bunch of Goons talking shite. Not much happening to be honest, just a few logistic boosted gangs sitting on the station and the odd cyno field going up. It was all rather boring.

Shockingly I didn't say a word in local. Maturity has finally hit me I guess  ACK!

Edit

I saw this posted on local last night, I don't know anything about the guy referenced but I guess some people might be interested

Also all ships not just carrier fighters can be moved like Homeworld, when the expansion is out on Wednesday.
Expect bugs galore.

Its a go, and [this is taken froma reddit post] the goon supercapitals are stuck in their staging systems logged off awaiting overloaded drone bays, bubbles, the risk of
being pointed by small ships, someone building a citadel at their log-off point, people monitoring the systems and unable to fit any of the
new modules while also having their hp nerfed. Also no more freemoves for players in jump drive ships when they resub.

Can you resize your sov map post above to 800x600 or something, so it's not so wide?  Esp. since it's out-of-date now.  Reddit has an animated gif somewhere with the sov changes during the war; watch the yellow area shrink to almost nothing in 5 frames, maybe link that.

So I still give no fucks about fleet lag battles.  I am however curious about whether all this citadel crap is finally implementing dockable stuff in W-space, and I can't find thing one about how these things are built anywhere on CCP's site, past some years-old theoryposts from the devs.

Not sure about any that have been successfully installed in W-Space, but I know a couple of freighters have been wrecked carrying citadels.  A few others in null and lowsec have been destroyed while anchoring and vulnerable.

Eve 13 anniversary celebrated with fireworks and a capsule skin [though there is bug with the capsule skin atm].

Wish we could still do this

Depends what you mean by built but if you mean put it in space, then it must be 1000km from another station, another certain distance from other celestials [asteroid belt for example], which is less than 1000km and not in certain protected systems like Jita, rookie systems for example, otherwise you can put them anywhere. You launch it from cargo, move it around and rotate it it you like, set the vulnerability timers for it and if the outline of the citadel is green emans you can build it there. Takes some time to build after it is built it has a 15 minute [for astrahaus at least] vulnerability timer where it can be destroyed outright and after that an enemy needs to go through the vulnerability timers that you have set to destroy it. You can control it like a immovable ship, give it rigs, market, ew modules etc.

I logged on for a quick fly-around (in Empire space) and found a citadel which I docked in. That was pretty cool.
