HMA Open PvP Tournament (December 2022)


UPDATE – This Tournament is temporarily postponed. The HMA, in coordination with the Hek Fight Club, is proud to announce the first HMA Open PvP Tournament, starting December 1st at Midnight. The rules are simple. 32 Pilots will be entered into a Single-Elimination tournament. Once pairings are announced, each pilot will have five days to […]

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 […]

HMASeAT, Take Two


I am proud to announce that we have finally managed to install SeAT on our trusty web server here at RogueCorp HQ. As some might be aware, we first began using SeAT about four months ago as a means of managing Discord access (among many other functions). Unfortunately, due to technical issues with the virtual […]

Introducing Phase 2 of the HMA


Oye M’Beltas, For the past year and a half, the HMA has been a regular feature of Hek and the surrounding systems with our public mining fleets. However, this is only a small part of what is intended for the HMA. From the beginning, I envisioned the HMA as an economic powerhouse – controlling resources, […]

What Does The HMA Mean To You?


As we prepare to move into Phase 2 of the HMA (foreshadowing, much) I would like us all to take a moment to reflect on where we’ve been and where we are going. For myself, the HMA was never about mining. It was about generating content while helping new pilots ease into the world of […]

Enemies vs. Adversaries


Eve Online has a reputation as a toxic cesspit of sociopaths and malcontents. However, in reality, nothing could be further from the truth. What outsiders fail to grasp, and what distinguishes a true capsuleer, is that we know that these are only roles that we play. While there will always be people who take things […]

Poll: Is Ganking Good For Eve?


Given the near-constant controversy, I have thrown together a quick poll to try and assess the communities opinion on ganking. UPDATE – Due to abuse of VPNs and Proxies we had to make some changes to our site and reset the polls. Hopefully, it should now more accurately reflect the will of the people. UPDATED […]

Why We Gank


No policy of the HMA creates more division than that we gank other miners. So, why don’t we just stop? Why don’t we reverse-course and declare that the HMA will no longer participate in or tolerate ganking? With a stroke of a metaphorical pen, we could put all of our disagreements aside and live in […]

Where Do We Go From Here?


When I founded the HMA, I did so with the singular goal of driving new-player engagement. To that end, I consider it an unqualified success. Despite the best efforts of our detractors and adversaries, our fleets continue to be a regular sight within Hek and the surrounding systems. However, one cannot deny that we are […]
