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? […]

HMA Salutes: Clipped Wingz


Normally, the HMA likes to save our accolades for those who directly contribute to our goals and objectives. However, we also like to recognize pilots who embody the spirit of Eve Online. Along those lines, we would like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of Wrathful Hawk and his corporation Clipped Wingz. Their accomplishments […]

A Miner’s Tale: An Introduction to Mining with HMA


Today we look to the stars of Hek, a location in Minmatar Republic space: bordering the threshold of both highsec and lowsec space. Home to the Hek Mining Association. My name is Kaito Subaru, a miner, just like the rest of you. I came to EVE: Online from what is shy of 16 years ago, […]

HMA Salutes: Tornado Innovations… and friends.


Here at the HMA, we like making friends almost as much as we like making enemies. And, best of all, is when you can have both. On the surface, New Eden appears to be a galaxy driven by conflict when in reality it is driven by relationships. Every single organization lives and dies by the […]

A Conversation with the “Princess”


You know you’ve made a name for yourself when the self-titled “Heroin [sic] of High Sec” feels the need to reach out and insult you directly. To be fair, I have been very vocal in my opinion of the entire Safety. organization. However, truth be told, I have a great deal of respect for them […]
