Reintroducing the HMA Structure Network


Let’s get straight to the point… structures are an expensive pain in the ass. And yet, they are an essential infrastructure element for many groups. They offer freedom, flexibility, and (at sufficient scale) cost savings. So, what is a small corp that wants the benefits of structure ownership without the upkeep to do? Why, they […]



People often express misunderstanding about the nature of the HMA. While everything you need to know about us can be found in the pages of this blog, who in our busy day and age has time to read multiple blog posts. So, here is a brief summary of what we are and what we do. […]

My Orca Was Ganked #itfinallyhappened #nsfw


It is with a heavy heart that I announce that after two long years the HMA Flagship was finally the target of a dedicated strike team of gankers. On 2023.04.25, a combined team of Train Wreck. and Safety Set To Red pilots targeted me for destruction. While stepping away to attend to other duties they […]

Oops… I did it again [Happy Anniversary]


Boy does time fly when you have the attention span of a cocaine-fueled housefly, as it seems I’ve missed yet another anniversary. As of March 16th 2023, the HMA has been bringing you murder and mining for two whole years. If you’ve been with us from the beginning… Why? If you’re one of our newer […]

2nd Annual April Fool’s Invasion


Oye M’Beltas, It’s that time of year again. Time to invade Uedama, the Gank Capital of New Eden. With Orca boosts and ECM support it is our intention to once again clean out their belts. As before, there will be prizes for participants who bag themselves some gankers. So bring your mining ships, your gun […]

Why “Join” The HMA?


The most significant obstacle for the HMA has always been getting people to participate. I don’t necessarily mean getting people to join our fleets although that can sometimes be a challenge. What I am referring to is getting people involved and engaged in furthering the growth of our friendly neighborhood cartel. Over the past two […]

Introducing the Hull Integrity Test


Honoring our love of both puns and violence, the HMA is proud to announce that we are no longer performing sanctions of unregulated miners. We will now be performing Hull Integrity Tests, or HITs, to ensure that those mining in and around Hek are doing so safely and responsibly. Although nothing is changing policy-wise, framing […]

Enforcing Compliance


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. […]

Who’s the Bosmang?


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


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 […]
