Business post: Jita, the cheapest hub

There are many places for you to shop. Actually all stations in the game. However a few stations became frequent in trading, usually one per region. You can see them on eve-marketdata. The largest, having twice the traffic of the second is Jita IV - Moon 4 - Caldari Navy Assembly Plant. The second is in Amarr. The next three are about 2/3-1/2 of Amarr: Dodixie, Rens and Hek. They are followed by smaller ones, 1/5 of their traffic.

There are two interesting (and profitable) things in this:
  1. Jita is the cheapest
  2. You can find more buyers than sellers in the other hubs
The two statements are obviously connected: more buyers mean higher prices. #1 is obvious, both the lowest sell and the highest buy order are higher in other hubs than Jita. #2 means that if you set both a buy and a sell order and update them regularly to be the lowest (obviously not by 0.01), your sell orders will be completed more often. This also means that if you want to keep selling, you must transport items from Jita.

This is quite interesting, as most areas are closer to some other hub than Jita. Yet the people haul on the long way everything there, just to sell them for the lowest possible prices. In some cases it's defendable: as sellers are often buyers too, they rather sell for cheaper than buy their supplies for more. It's especially true for nullsec people who buy much more than they sell, since their main product is liquid ISK from anoms. The JF comes for supplies to the hub, dumps that few deadspace items into buy orders and stack up with new stuff.

For other residents, I'd rather blame stupidity. Dodixie is a mission hub, most of the NPC kills in the region are within 4 jumps range. The missioners buy implants for their LP, haul them to Jita, dump them to my buy orders, I haul them back to Dodixie and sell them with 5-10% profit. Same thing with Amarr. I have no idea why don't they set sell orders in Dodixie or Amarr instead. But I also have no clue why they farm Gallente/Amarr LP when they could farm Thukker or Sisters LP instead for twice as much profit.

Anyway, you can make billions from buying all kind of stuff in Jita and hauling them to smaller hubs. Despite they rarely fill, I still suggest to set buy orders in the selling hub (no higher than Jita buy though) just to catch a rare local seller. Just don't be stupid and haul them in freighters. Transport Tengu for the small ones, Occator+double-wrap for the bigger ones.

This also means that if you aren't a trader, just farm something, consider selling it in a nearby hub. You can move your supplies from Jita to that hub via a hauler corp.

The kills of 2014: #9 CONCORD and #10 SOLAR FLEET

It's hard to believe that CONCORD is the #9 alliance on the killboard, probably because other NPC kills aren't listed. This alliance has a pretty elite killboard, obviously.

Below you can see what alliances contributed more than 100B to the killboard of the analyzed one. You can see that "extremely successful" Miniluv had about 7% of the CONCORD losses, so did about the same percentage of suicide gankings. The GRR project has bigger part of CFC losses and that's officially irrelevant.

Rank Alliance B Damage done B Damage taken ISK ratio
1 CODE. 445 0 100
2 Goonswarm Federation 292 0 100
- #NPC Corporations 398 0 100
- Sum of small ones 3104 0 100
- Total 4239 0 100

The inflation factor of this alliance is: 100% as they need no help. Please note that if players are listed on the kill, they get 100% of the kill, even if their effect on the kill is minimal, so these kills are the pure CONCORD kills, there are probably more CONCORD kills.

Below you can see the monthly activity distribution chart. "Month" is here 1/12 year and not exact calendar month. Also, sorry for the ASCII graph, but creating so many proper image charts would be exreme work for all the alliances. Colors refer to ISK ratios, pure red means below 20%.

Now this is one of the moments where statistics doesn't only provide numbers, but insight. I mean we've all known that CODE is ganking with 90%+ ISK ratio, Goons beaten NC., PL farmed BRAVE and Provi to lick their wounds of B-R. But I've (and probably you've) known little about SOLAR. Sure, they are one of the largest alliance, you probably also heard that they were evicted from the East, then temporarily lived with the CFC. But you probably considered them another mediocre alliance, which is pretty far from the truth. They are pretty green and not only in January (B-R). They won against every big enemies and didn't accumulate serious pirate losses. Despite their troubled history, they remained a serious and successful force.

MoA only kills dumb ratters and can never win strategic fights

The title is a common Goon trolling, claiming that the massacre of their members is irrelevant, as only system ownership matters. Well, they need to find a new line:
Yes, I'm sure the damage control will start that "it was just FCON", but hey, who forces you to tolerate these failures in your coalition? I'm also sure they will take it back, just to lose something else, and such losses have a price:
ION-FG is now the Capital System of Mordus Angels
From: CONCORD
Sent: 2015.07.27 22:15
This system is now your Alliance Capital and all of Mordus Angels's sovereignty structures within it receive a defensive bonus.
Yes, the minions of evil have to grind long because every system MoA takes becomes their capital with defensive bonus.

And the best part is yet to come: ION-FG isn't just the first system MoA took from the Imperium of Evil. It's the first system anyone took from them in the Aegis Sov system. Not PL, not BL, not NC., not Nulli or any of the strong and "elite" did it, but MoA, making MoA the strongest strategic opponent of the Imperium.

Finally, let us contemplate over the fact that MoA is being "hellcamped" again, which clearly stops their activity, so a bunch of ratters totally didn't die and FCON was totally not evicted from Pure Blind. I wonder what make line members show up in the camp? Oh wait, being obedient minions do.


PS: to make an already great day perfect, in the wake of the disastrous Burn Amarr results, the leader of Miniluv, Warr Akini resigned. To underline that failure, he held a weekend ganking event in the proper ganking systems with proper crew and got better numbers than they did in Burn Amarr, proving my point that dragging around "bros" (morons and slackers) slows you down. Let us remember to this "ultra-competitive over-achiever" who failed to get to the top half of the pilots of 2014, despite PvP-ing relentlessly. He now returns to real life where he "consider myself extremely successful" (just like the miners who just don't have time to be at the keyboard) but we'll never forget his brilliant idea of taking highsec POCOs to serve as eternal monuments of the supremacy of Goons. Our sorrow over his departure is mixed with genuine fear that he might be replaced at the helm of Miniluv by someone with more competency than invertebrates. As a parting gift, let as provide to his request "in an active month, Miniluv kills more than one trillion ISK. Please point me to an organization that can achieve such mayhem in a single month in EVE and remain financially stable!" How about a corp of me + 7 players as good as me?

PS2: meet the brightest Goon in the block, who was so mad at losing his bling ship and pod that he threatened his killers with EULA violation (which was immediately reported of course):
Gaara's sniper: i'll make sure you all suffer with my 22 rattlesnake multiboxing

A-social =/= alone

At first I dismissed them as trolls. But there were so many "you have a girlfriend, you must be social" or "you have a blog, you must be social" comments that I have to accept it as a widespread concern, despite being bizarre to me.

Two soldiers are not 2x stronger than one, that's why they don't wander around alone.
Specializing in tasks increases our overall performance, see comparative advantage.
In rare emergency situations we need help of other people.
Due to lack of artificial intelligence, we can only discuss ideas with other people.
These are just a few examples out of the million ways where cooperating with other people is a positive-sum action and bring us closer to our goals. Forfeiting these advantages because they include interaction with other people would be quite dumb. Other people are objectively existing entities, discriminating against them is completely unjustified.

But then who is "social" if everyone should cooperate with people? Simple: socials don't cooperate with people, they are with people. Socials put the cart ahead of the horse, they don't seek people to solve a problem together or get mutual advantage, but just because they are people. This can (and usually do) reach the bizarre position when they stick to people who have absolutely no utility (the morons and slackers) or even harmful to them (abusive relationships).

Another distinctive quality of a social relationship is that the social finds the partner unique and irreplaceable, despite it's obviously not true. With an a-social mind, even if the partner is the best available (well, it's just optimal to pick the best available), there must be a second best available to pick if the current one fails. For a social the replacement is pretty hard and usually a long crying period happens before even the seeking for replacement starts.

Finally, socials wish to be liked by their partners and very much prefer partners who like them over partners who are actually useful. Salesmen are a perfect example of partners who are outright harmful (will scam your money out of your pocket), but people prefer to "cooperate" with them due to their excellent ability to show (fake) respect and liking to their targets.

Finally, the "magic question", to decide if a relationship is utilitarian or social: "would it matter if your partner would be replaced with an android capable of the same stuff?"


PS: fitting advice from SMA: always use T1 guns and T1 ammo in your marauder.
Fitting advice from GSF: always use deadspace and faction items on an AFK Ishtar.
Fitting advice from LAWN: always be cap stable.
I guess the proper ship is fitted with deadspace cap recharges and T1 guns. I can't wait to see it!

The kills of 2014: CODE. and Brave Collective

The #7 killer of 2014 was the New Order of Highsec, the ganking show of James 315. You can see that most of their activity is done by The Conference Elite, they kill more and more as time progresses and they are most active in late EU - early USTZ. Their biggest enemy is CONCORD, listed under "NPC loss", while their allies are Goonswarm and other CFC elements. It is also clear that among all alliances I've seen they are the most focused on solo PvP. (If you wish to comment that killing miners isn't PvP, please don't do it here, do it in Gamis local instead).

Below you can see the corps of the alliance with more than 100B of its activity:
Rank Corp B Damage done B Damage taken ISK ratio

3 NEW ORDER DEATH DEALERS 604 62 91
- Sum of small ones 195 28 87
- Total 5778 719 89

Below you can see what alliances contributed more than 100B to the killboard of the analyzed one.

The inflation factor of this alliance is: 134%. Below you can see which alliances helped it the most by shooting the same target. Please note that damage is capped by own damage, so if the analyzed alliance did 1B damage, X did 2B, Y did 8B, then X get 0.2B help, Y get 0.8B, as their help provided 1B de-inflated damage.

Let's now see Brave Collective, which collects newbies and fly them bravely in dangerous space. The most surprising thing is that the main corp, Brave Newbies Inc. isn't that bad, only 42% and its second corp, Dropbears is almost good. Bearded BattleBears and BOVRIL bOREers Mining CO-OP are indeed horrible, probably that's why they left Brave Collective and joined alliances that fit their skills better (-A- and RAZOR).

As expected, they are red against everyone except renters, NPC corps and ... Nulli Secunda (probably the reason why Progod left). Their allies were TEST and Spaceship Samurai and the most important thing is the constant growth of activity over the year with both US and EUTZ presence. They fly and kill small ships and lose badly in small gang, but in blob they are ISK neutral. So there is future for them.
