A couple years ago there were still bpcs floating around for mines so I am guessing some people still had some BPOs. For nostalgia. I haven't seen anything about them lately on contracts though. I was hoping to get a BPO if possible someday.

Someone in my bloodlines corp called shenanigans on me the other day when I was regaling them with the story of how before I ever played eve I would look through the old fan art/screen shots section of the old eve-o site. And found a screen shot of some guys pos where he built a sphere of warp bubbles around it and mined the crap out of the area. By the time I started playing mines were not a thing.


There was a contract up in Jita a few months ago selling a Mine BP for a massive sum. Was a nostalgic moment for me.

In the age of the portable structures they need to bring back mines, they just need to set parameters were they can't be at place too close together and their damage must be limited and not installed death.

They should make a ship called a mine layer with bonuses to deploying mines faster than normal ships and has increased cargo while fewer mid and high slots too. Maybe like a T2 Bantam, etc!

No stacking penalties was SO much fun.Could make a raven lock as fast as a frigate and kill it off with torps in one volley .Now THAT was funtimes camping gates in nullsec.




Damn you UAE ... you're making this a bittervet saturday evening for me Cry

We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.

Don't forget sitting 150km off a gate pre Warp to 0 and pre nano-nerf and then racing your own missiles in to a target on the gate so you basically alpha'd the poor guy with a massive hit of 5+ volleys all at once.

Taking bids on it if anyone wants it. I've had it for as long as I can remember :)

Need stuff moved? Push Industries will handle it. Serving highsec, lowsec and nullsec - and we do it faster and more reliably than anyone else. Ingame channel: PUSHX

That BPO is odd there isn't a view contracts option for it, it's copies or the mines. Looks like ccp might have nuked it.

I miss the times when "a large fleet" meant 100. I have no connection to or longing for the silly sized fleets we have right now.

We still have torp kestrels, they are called Manticore. Although they used to use cruise instead of torp =). But now they use torp so now they are torp kestrels.
That would be a torp Manticore then. I was referring to the Kestrel and not only could you fit torps, you could also fit whatever you liked in it's launchers. Hence, we do not still have them. Blink

I liked it when u could park yourselves in a 0.6 system and be alone in system for days on end.

When the thorax was an uber miningship! Big smile

The moment i had mined enough minerals to build my own Mega.

Ah the good ol' days.
