What does the concept of "home" mean in EVE Online?

Some say a man's home is his castle. For others it is wherever they lay their hat. The concept is just as nebulous in the New Eden sandbox.

In EVE Online, what does the concept of "home" mean to you?

Home = ISK.

Home is something I've never had much of a concept of in Eve. It's normally easier to sell ships and buy new ones at a different location than move loads of them.

Nullsec changes hands a lot, so I've never felt at 'home' there. Certainly nothing like the trailers make out of fighting for your own bit of space.

Strangely, wormholes are the nearest I've ever had to a 'home' due to the logistics involved and long term deployment in one hole.

You mean "mate", mate.

I spent some time in a wormhole and honestly I really felt like the POS was my 'home'. Now that I'm out and doing other things, I don't really feel like I have a home.

The more bookmarks I already have in the area, the more homelike it feels.

I have a fair bit of crap, so wherever I move it, that becomes home for a while due to the effort involved in moving. I usually anchor one or two things, get to know the area, maybe set up some PI (that reminds me...), and that makes it feel more homely. Currently, home is Hjoramold.

"Home" is one of the reasons I want corp-independent mini-POSes. I'd feel much more at home if I had my own built-up-over-time little shack out in deep space to keep my ****, instead of parking in an anonymous NPC station with twenty other pilots.

Certain chat channels. Spaceships come and go but afternoons with TheButcherPete are priceless.

"We will create the introduction thread if that is requested by the community. Also, we will have an ISD Seminar about the CCL team in the coming weeks in which you can ask your questions about the CCL team and provide some constructive feedback to us." - Countless pages of locked threads and numerous permabanned accounts later, change is coming.

My home is my wormhole. It's not much, but I wouldn't live anywhere else.

Where you live.....get out!

Once you think you have it all, you have actually become ignorant towards everything else.

'Home' for me is the system where I've currently set up shop, put my spare ships, spare junk, my BPO library, etc. The different stations kinda like the different 'rooms' I guess.

Though I still remember my old stomping grounds fondly, whenever I am in Hek, I just get all nostalgic about when I was a noob, running missions here, mining, then finding out about exploration, and starting up my ore and mineral trade, expanding t manufacturing.. Ohh good times... I learned a lot of the things I use today down there.
Nowadays just with bigger numbers ;)

Does railgun ammunition come in Hollow Point?
