Literally Anyone Else For CSM18


As some of you might know, our best frenemy RGC Godfather is running for CSM18 on a platform of… wait for it… killing ganking (among other things). For full details, check out his CSM Campaign Thread. If it’s not obvious enough from the title, allow me to spell it out for you. I think this […]

Rules of the Road


Communities are defined by rules, either implied or explicit. They indicate both what behavior is expected and what behavior is prohibited by its members. The HMA is no exception. Although our rules as an organization have changed significantly over the years, our rules for the expected behavior in our fleets remain largely the same. Our […]

Accept No Substitutions


They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If that is true, then we have reason to be deeply flattered. As many of you are likely aware, there are elements within Hek and the surrounding systems that would like nothing more than to see our humble organization wiped off the face of New […]

Armistice with Nebula Mining Operations


For reasons I do not feel at liberty to discuss, it has come to my attention that the rogue elements within Nebula Industries And Frozen Assets are likely acting without the consent or possibly even awareness of their alliance leadership. Due to this state of affairs, I am requesting a temporary end to sanctions of […]

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves


Greetings and Salutations, As many of you know, Hek and the surrounding systems are currently in a state of disarray. Multiple groups have taken it upon themselves to challenge our position as the regulatory authority in area.

However, as our buyback process is heavily dependent on this tool, it does put us in a rough spot. Of the available alternatives, we feel that Janice will serve as the most […]

Shooting Up, Part Three


I was a big fan of DUST 514. For those who aren’t familiar, this was a PS3 exclusive first-person shooter which ran from 2013 to 2016 that (debatably) connected with Eve Online. To be clear, I wasn’t very good nor do I think the game itself was very good. But, the idea of an FPS […]

Bosmang Learning & Accreditation Program


Oye M’beltas, As mentioned in our anniversary post, one of our main objectives for this year is to develop a program to help provide skill plans, training, financial assistance, and vetting to prospective HMA fleet leaders. While anyone can, and is encouraged to, run an HMA fleet a Bosmang is one who has shown that […]

Everything is Permitted


One of the fundamental tenets of the HMA is that we neither recognize nor issue permits in lieu of fleet participation. In other words, the only way avoid being griefed or ganked by the HMA is to be in an HMA fleet. This is an important distinction between us and other CODE-Friendly organizations. Most who […]

Recommended Reading


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 […]
