Although not as prolific as some, over the past several years we’ve put out enough blog posts to make it difficult for our newer participants to know what is truly important. While I consider all of our posts worth reading there are some that provide distinctive guidance and insight regarding how the HMA operates. To […]

HMA Sues SCC for Libel


The Secure Commerce Commission (SCC) is a CONCORD body mandated by the four empires to regulate interstellar trade and commerce. As one would expect, neutrality is a fundamental requirement of their mission. However, a recent court filing calls that impartiality into question. In a class action suit on behalf of all participating HMA members, attorneys […]

HMA Introduces New Mascot


As part of our ongoing community relations efforts, the HMA is proud to announce that we have adopted an official mascot. Tentatively known as Herman, this lovable capybara has clearly seen his share of violence. Much like the animal upon which he is based, and the organization he represents, Herman is a friend to all […]

Leading the Way to New Horizons 


Dear Hek Mining Association,    I am both honored and humbled to stand before you today as the newly appointed President of our esteemed organization. First and foremost, I want to express my deepest gratitude for the trust and confidence you have placed in me. It is with great enthusiasm and a profound sense of […]

HMA Appoints New President


Oye M’Beltas, Over the past three years, it has been my pleasure and privilege to serve as President of the Hek Mining Association. I am deeply proud of the work we have done and the relationships we have built. In good times and in bad, the HMA has remained a place where all people are […]

Haters Gonna Hate


As a pro-ganking organization, the HMA has our fair share of detractors. However, none have been more vocal nor more venomous than RGC Godfather and his cult of personality. After being kicked from RogueCorp and briefly banned from the HMA for shooting blues (see I’ve Got The Blues), he has made it his life’s mission […]

CODE and the HMA


One of the most common criticisms of the HMA is that we are just a wannabe CODE. And, while I don’t personally consider that to be the insult it is intended to be, it is important to understand that this just isn’t true. While the HMA does (very loosely) adhere to our own Hek Code […]

Reintroducing the Hek Mining Association


Wow… what a way to end the year, ‘m’right!? First, we have the occupation of Hek and the surrounding systems by a hostile Minmatar faction. Second, our beloved home finds itself on the path to gentrification as the powers that be push its Security Status from 0.5 to 0.8. Although these unwelcome changes might seem […]

The Art of Diplomacy


Despite its sci-fi trappings, Eve Online is in many ways analogous of the real world. Alliances fight over resources, territory, and influence in an endless ballet of creation and destruction. And, while military might is certainly necessary, the real war is still fought primarily at the bargaining table. Making friends and influencing people has always […]

Echoes of Reason, Intrigue, Mercenaries, and The Azbel. 


The ongoing conflict between Nebula Industries Frozen Assets, and FL33T in EVE Online takes another captivating twist with the introduction of The Azbel Proposition. In a surprising move, Sn3aky Viking reaches out to FL33T, specifically addressing [FL33T] BearThatCares. His proposal to sell his Azbel in Hek adds a layer of unexpected diplomacy, further complicating the […]



Currently, Hek and the surrounding systems finds themselves under occupation by hostile forces. Known as the Minmatar Fleet Alliance [FL33T], they come claiming liberation but offer only subjugation. Toward that end, their first goal has been the total eradication of the Hek Mining Association and all those who support us. Perhaps, justifiably so, they see […]
