How did you get into the game?

Ash: Friends!

Phyridean's Pub Quiz

Before Tiericide, each race had a mining cruiser. For the Caldari and Minmatar, the Osprey and the Scythe, their logistics cruisers, held this role. However, the logistics cruisers for the Gallente and Amarr (the Exequror and Auguror) were not those races' mining cruisers. Which cruisers were the Gallente and Amarr mining cruisers?

Check out the Ghosts in the Machine contest!

    1. I can't help but feel you should have mentioned the role that Officer modules play in facilitating scams!

      1. I'm actually not terribly familiar with officer mod scams. I've heard of them, but not much more.

    2. Love you show guys keep up the good work .
