Not only are there numerous blogs giving their opinions about the happenings and politics in the game, but also several sites dedicated to delivering news in a journalistic format. It is, as an old meme goes, serious business. But when there are people that take something seriously, there are those that just have to lampoon it.

Community Spotlight: K162 Space

By CCP Eterne
| Comments

One of the most overlooked aspects of EVE Online is the market. The men and women who prowl the trade lanes, looking for deals that can turn them rich, don't get the acclaim that the FCs and alliance leaders of EVE receive. But they're still making it big. There are several blogs who have lifted the sheet on the practice of the marketeers, with K162 Space being a leader among them. Inauspicious Beginnings K162 Space was not always a market-oriented blog.

Of the various activities available to EVE Online® players, one in particular has been around since day one: reprocessing. It grinds ore into the minerals needed to start basic manufacturing.
