The corp would have "mining days" when we would all tool around in Thorax's and Domis filled to the gills with things like harvester mining drones.

You know you feel old when most of the things being talked about from the "bad old days" happened three to four years into your Eve career.

Let's see what I remember....

Xetic vs Stain first alliance war

Goons were a small corp flying frigates, and would never own space


Burn Eden



Gate rats in High sec

Making instas for fast travel

BS was the king of ships

Cruise missle Kestrels

Real player pirates that scared the hell out of you

Yulai was the shopping hub

Ryctor stole so much damn ore from cans that he brought about the aggro changes.

The thing I miss most are the old players that made CAOD and the game really felt like you were on the side of good or evil. Eve was a healthier game back then.

I remember back in 2004 roaming through large areas of null sec without ever seeing anyone, heck, even roaming through vast amounts of high sec and never seeing anyone.

EVE feels a lot busier now than it did back then but still just as vast, and a lot more dangerous, and I'm quite happy with that Cool

a alliance with a few Jump freighters was unique

There were jump freighters?

Back in the day logistics was carrier-jumping module compressed low end minerals from highsec.

There where carriers?

Everything was done with the good ol' badger/iteron , lovely going 20 jumps through null and no one to scout online.

But really old days? Raven torp with a full rack of damage mods, enough said.
