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 […]

I’ve Got The Blues


There comes a point in time where every community has a moment of crisis where a battle is fought for its heart and soul. And, judging from the the chaos and toxicity running rampant in our in-game channel, our moment has finally come. I regret to say that I am directly at fault for our […]

Have You Bought The Farm?


No aspect of HMA operations is more misunderstood then the role played by Amygdala Farms. And, this is mostly intentional. On its surface, it appears to be a silly little way to add some RP to your SP Farming. And, that is exactly how it started. However, as time progressed, Amygdala Farms proved itself the […]

Your Friendly Neighborhood Cartel


I would like to start today’s post with an apology on behalf of myself and the HMA. Sakanne Kujaki, our actions – although true to the letter – were not true to the spirit of the HMA. There is a fundamental difference between failure to adhere to our regulations and refusal to adhere to our […]

Authorization Imminent


Oye m’beltas, In the interest of improved security and convenience, member authentication is now being handled by SeAT. Primarily, this is meant to control access to our Discord server but offers additional functionality that will become more relevant as we expend the activities our fleets engage in. This is currently live and we will clear […]

We Are All Winston


It is not uncommon for people to want a figurehead to rally behind. It is human nature to follow a leader whether they gained that position through charisma, competence, luck, or (in my case) persistence. Although deeply flattering, this is actually something I have tried very hard to avoid. It has always been my goal […]

Shooting Up, Part Two


In our last episode, we discussed what would be needed to make the new Eve FPS a success. Today, I’d like to show an example of gameplay from a narrative perspective. Fingers crossed, this is a window into what we can expect. Enjoy. Tom Capsuleer logs in to see his familiar Captain’s Quarters. He sits […]

Shooting Up, Part One


Although far from perfect, Dust 514 was a solid effort that filled a void I didn’t realize I had. For the first time ever, we were able to experience the world of New Eden from the perspective of the boots on the ground. However, despite its aspirations it never quite delivered on the promise of […]

Don’t Be An Asshole


At the HMA we have one rule that stands above all others and forms the core of our values. Don’t be an asshole. It seems straightforward but what does it mean and how does it influence our operations? Specifically, how can an organization that actively welcomes gankers and griefers claim that they are not assholes? […]
