    I realized that by selling ark that i mine whole, i can get 500,000 every 20 minutes or so in my osprey, and thats only the base, with no more skills, additions to my ship. Thats pretty sweet.

    Some guy in E-Pros is buying ark for 3200 a unit.

    Not only has the Trinity site gone live, but today the initial beta of the Trinity Engine went live on Singularity. Initial reports from intrepid Goonswarm members:
    Also trip report:

    + frames per second through the roof. FFA 1 had like fifty wrecks and at least two hundred drones with ~20 people fighting and I had no slowdowns.
    + things are shiny

    - holy christ ram usage (although CCP may have built it with debugging features enabled which would explain the ram usage and makes sense considering this is the first public testing)
    - grid load lag still exists but after the initial loading lag there is no "studdering" or persistent slowdown.

    Sounds quite encouraging so far, I'm probably going to give it a look myself tomorrow.

    I was going to say 500k/20min is lame, but in an osprey that isn't bad I guess (although you could probably still make more ratting in a caracal but wtvr). I'm getting into a retriever tonight so It'll be interesting to see how strip mining in e-pr0s compares to Raven ratting in same. It will probably suck without serious gang bonuses etc. but meh.

    Salvaging III is only necessary for salvaging faction spawns and t2 player wrecks afaik.

    Where is Sansha space? I only say that i was happy making what i was because im a noob who played a year ago in empire. Someone wanna tell me how to make more money in more detail? Armor-tank a cruiser means little to me.

    I played this a lot a few years back, but got really bored with the corps I kept finding (every time I joined a new one that claimed to do pvp, it just turned out to be a bunch of pansies who would leave an alliance because, heaven forbid, they were getting attacked by other alliances) and ended up grinding way more pve than I ever wanted. (Remained very dull even after Revelations, though it was a lot better on the rare occasions that I could find a group.)

    If I went back now, could I actually get some 0.0 action right off the bat?

    Am I right that they slowed the economy / increased mob difficulty again? I see a night as a time line for making 20m. The last time I played, you could do that in 3 - 4 hours in a BS by farming mid sec L3 and L4 missions and by selling implants / slightly rare items. There would be days where I'd make 70 - 120M. The time before that (about a year earlier), you could split 20M between a couple of people every 2 - 3 hours doing the same thing in a couple of missile frigs.

    Lvl 3 also gives a universal 50% increase to salvage chance, so it's definitely worth it (15% chance as opposed to 10%).

    Is this from ratting in goonspace? If so, the difference is that Angels are significantly harder to kill than any other NPC race. We just captured some Sansha space from BoB though, so we have at least some alternative.

    And I thought I'd mention this because it's hilarious and it shows what kind or assholes our enemies are: Today we recieved word that BoB has kicked out one of their tenant/slave alliances because they had the apparent audacity to try to stand up on their own and fight back against some random pirates who have invaded their space. This basically means that the tenants' assets are now locked away in BoB stations that they can no longer dock at.

    For actual ore mining, barges really aren't that great. If I really go crazy I can make a Dominix that mines just about as well as a Covetor and tanks much harder. Barges are only necessary for Ice Mining. If you're serious about Ice then you want a Mackinaw most of all.

    EDIT:

    Attention Newbies

    If you are attacked in space we cannot actually help you if you do not tell us where you are

    I am thinking about applying to you guys. I am not a newbie though. My main have 16,5 million SP and is a combat pilot. I also have two alts with around 7 million SP, one industrial and one combat. All my chars have the last name Jolar.

    I would appreciate if someone could direct me to someone I could discuss it with, just reply here or send an EVEmail to Theron Jolar.

    I'm in Veritas Immortalis atm, before that I was in FREGE (until they got kicked out of the drone regions, when my weak corp decided to jump ship and join the enemy).

    EDIT: Fuck it I am going to go and apply, hopefully there wont be any problems.
