The HMA prides itself on being an inclusive community. Everyone is welcome to take part in our fleets as long as they are willing to abide by our rules. So, what do we do with folks who either fail to abide by our rules or refuse to join our fleets? Well, whatever you want to. […]

Oye, m’beltas! If you’re not familiar, The Expanse is a book and TV series chronicling the adventures of the crew of the Rocinante as they navigate the perils of a war-torn solar system. Throughout, one of main drivers of the plot is the oppression of those who live and work in the asteroid belts. When […]


HMA Salutes: Solstice Projekt

0 Comments

Love him or loathe him, if you’ve spent any amount of time in Hek in the past decade you almost certainly know of him. In truth, this is an acknowledgement long overdue. You see, despite having no formal affiliation and having declined my many attempts to recruit him, he is nonetheless the Godfather of the […]


The HMA is Dead, Long Live the HMA

A time comes in every wannabe cartel boss’ life when he has to admit that things just aren’t working. While I still believe in the business model I tried to rollout for Phase 2, I lacked the motivation, organization, and influence to make it a reality. And so, I am humbly walking back those changes […]

Day 1 It’s hard to believe my three-month rotation is almost up. At the end of this week, I finally get leave to head planet-side and visit my family. Knowing that every wreck I pull in brings me one step closer to them makes all the difference. Don’t get me wrong. I love the work […]

So Long, and Thanks for All the Ships

As many of you are likely aware, CCP has recently made changes to Security Status as it relates to high sec systems such as Hek (see Changes to Security Status & Abyssal Filaments). While this may seem like a godsend for the mining community, I am inclined to disagree. As I’ve shared before, ganking is […]


HMA Salutes: Jak’rat

Ganking Ventures with a Catalyst is like clubbing baby seals. Sure, it’s fun, but it’s not terribly sporting and more than a little wasteful. So, what is a connoisseur of combat to do. Well, if you’re Jak’rat, the answer is to even the playing field a bit. Why shoot Ventures with an over-powered anti-frigate platform […]
