The other night I turned on my television to find a film called ‘Noah’ had been recently added to the available films, the description and trailer aroused my interest so I pressed play. ‘Noah’ in my eyes is the captivating retelling of a biblical tale about the trials and tribulations of a man named Noah and his family. The traditional story of ‘Noah’s Ark’ has been retold many times and many believe in different versions. The version I will link for you all to read pushes the idea that god wanted to save more than just one pair of each creature, he wanted to save enough males and females to continue reproduction after the ‘cleansing’.
In ‘Noah’ the film Russell Crowe portrays Noah as we all love and know him very well, he characterises Noah as a wise man who believes god is guiding him in his actions. We see Noah grow from a young boy into the wise old man that builds the Ark *spoiler alert* with the help of fallen angels known as ‘The Watchers’ *spoiler alert*. We now arrive at the curveball I will be developing on throughout the article. At every twist and turn Noah is enacting acts of violence above and beyond what you’d believe the saviour sent from God to be capable of. In order to defend the Ark, God has miraculously told Noah to build, he must kill any man, woman or child which threatens to kill him or the creatures onboard.
To me this states that there will always be violence regardless of any divine intervention and this is where I want to bring this over to games such as Eve Online. In Eve Online you have a universe created and run by a company called CCP, New Eden is the name given to this universe. In New Eden you can create what is known as a ‘Capsuleer’, this is where you can play God. You can create your Capsuleers image anyway you like, you can then choose which faction your Capsuleer belongs to (as you play the game you’ll realise it doesn’t matter who you start with, you always end up flying all the ships).
Heaven or the Garden of Eden, whichever you wish to choose, we all know has guards known as angels, angels will stop any evil spirits from entering this sacred place. New Edens equivalent is known as ‘Concord’, Concord is only present in high security space (high sec). For our example we will consider high sec to be the Garden of Eden, in high sec you are able to declare war on other corporations or alliances but to engage players outside of war declarations or duels you will be attacked by Concord and destroyed. If you attack other players in such way enough times you will find it very hard to fly around high sec let alone live in it. There are many people who live this way of life in-game and do what is known as suicide ganking, a community has even been set up around it with minerbumping.com as their ‘hub’.
Some would say that games such as Eve Online and to be honest all forms of media are pushing humanity away from religion. Now that you’ve read this short piece take a moment to yourself and think about the following statement/question; As a society we are subconsciously using video games/media of all forms to act out the ‘sinful’ sides of us. When we play video games or create media we are aware that we are not actually confronting people face to face so it is highly unlikely that any real threat exists to your wellbeing. Are we as a society acting out what isn’t socially acceptable or what all religions deem unacceptable by their deity/deities?

Hey this is MCKen3311, the following video is of a bling Navy Armageddon I killed in my orthrus on the way home from a roam. Come and give it a watch guys, it’s worth it 😉
My amazing kills can be viewed at the following link: Navy Armageddon kill.
Addressing one of the fundamental features of Eve Online seems fairly straightforward on paper, but the science of Economics is far from united and uniform. In this first article, I take real world economic theories and see how they compare to the in-game economy of Eve Online. Inflation, opportunity cost, ISK creation, and what you should do about them is covered within. Though Technitium was once lauded as the most valuable resource in Eve, do you know what the most valuable resource in Eve really is?

Christmas is once again upon us, for some this is a time to create memories with loved ones. Whether that be spending time around the fireplace singing carols or just spending some time in the company of loved ones you’ve not seen for months. Others see christmas as a time to create content day upon glorious day on their favourite video games for example Eve Online or Battlefield 4.
At Worldwide Content Creation we are interested in finding out what content you are creating or have already created in this magical period. Currently we strive to promote solely the efforts of players in Eve Online, It doesn’t matter who your alliance is or if you’re red to our alliance (soon to be created) we will publish whatever we believe to be an inspiring piece of content creation.

Myself and the rest of the team are looking forward to hearing back from you.
Wednesday 26th of November, This date for a select few signalled the realisation of what POS’s, any race and size, are able to do. POS stands for Player Owned Starbase, it is one of the few structures in Eve which can actually be attacked and destroyed. Many will not get to experience the joys of setting up and running a pos of their own, in order to set up and maintain a pos you will need roles within the corporation you’re a member of. Eve has a tendency for players to use the trust bestowed upon them to exact hurtful punishments on their ‘superiors’. Established corporations are very reluctant to give out permissions for this exact reason. The following link will take you to a story of how a player used his roles to take billions of isk worth of assets from his corp hangars.
On Wednesday 26th of November renters from all over the drone regions (north-east on the link) came together to finish off an amarr medium POS. This amarr medium POS for the sake of the story will be called ‘Jerry’. Jerry was no ordinary POS, he was an experiment by ‘Stoseph Stuarts’ (myself) to test the reactions of the multiple renters in a region known as ‘The Spire’. The Spire is one of many regions being rented out in the drone regions, the drone regions consist of the following regions; The Spire, Etherium Reach, Malpais, Kalevala Expanse, Perrigen Falls, Oasa, Outer Passage and Cobalt Edge. These regions account for almost a fifth of all player owned Null Sec systems in Eve Online.
My experiment was to set up an amarr medium POS in the following constellation, E65-47, as a forward operating base deeper into hostile sovereignty space. At the time the main staging point for myself and my friends was a system known as Skarkon, our forward operating base was the only station system in Null Sec that we owned at the time, CT8K-0. My main aim for this POS was to test out how long it would take for a hostile response fleet to show up and evict the assets I had placed. It took around 3 days from setting up Jerry to the initial attack from the renters. This initial attack came sooner and was much stronger than anticipated, the hostiles fielded a 70-90 man fleet which was kitchen sink based (multiple ship types/no planned doctrine). Renters from all over the drone regions came to help the locals kick me and Jerry out. Some of the killmails from this initial assault can be found here; Purifier (770 mill), Magnate (5 mill), Crow (27 mill), Manticore (41 mill), Manticore (34 mill), Oracle (84 mill), Corax (13 mill). For this first engagement Jerry killed 974 million Isk worth of ships for no losses, despite no losses the majority of Jerry’s offensive weapons were now incapacitated.
24 hours passed and it was go time for Jerry’s final stand against these bad guys who really wanted to kill him. Jerry fought valiantly for about half an hour, alas the might opposing fleet was too strong for him. This Oracle (89 mill) would be the last hostile Jerry would kill. Poor Jerry and all of his parts can be found in this battle report.
Overall Jerry would come to kill 1.063 billion Isk worth of hostile ships, whilst only costing around 200 million Isk himself. Please don’t let Jerry’s death be in vain, go out, explore, travel into the deepest depths of space and try out a POS like Jerry for yourself!!
Please mail ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ with any and all results of your own. I am looking forward to hearing back from many of you.
I know this looks like a mail, you are correct. I’m ‘mailing’ everyone out there to let them know about my new website, I am no longer going to be posting on my blog ‘Stoseph’s Content Creation’ but instead will be posting articles under my new and improved website ‘www.worldwidecontentcreation.co.uk‘.
As the site develops you will see new features such as a translator for all of the non-english speaking readers out there, an affiliate program link for Eve Online (get your friends playing the game) and in the future much much more.
So hey come on over and check us out, you’ll find articles about all sorts of activities in the game. Who knows maybe one day you’ll have something you want to publish via the site 😉
www.worldwidecontentcreation.co.uk, we’re waiting for you!
I know this is the site I’m swapping to, I thought I’d help you out and bring you straight to the site 😉
