So I was hangin out in EC- reading with my feet up on my Hounds dash when I noticed 5 MH freighters running back and forth from Torrinos, getting caught in their own bubbles 70 off, and slow boating it to the gate....next a Titan warps to the gate...... Yeah I know what your sayin, "big deal Snot, go back to jita"........but does anyone else out there want to know this ****? Maybe a gang thats been roaming for 2 hours with nothing to show for it and is now 4 jumps away but heading in the wrong direction?

So I thought wtf, If this does not exist yet, why not make an EVE wide Intel channel on delayed mode that anyone can dump intel into which might be useful for others. Whoever deems it useful can private convo the provider and never be seen. Sure you can dump bait into the channel but thats what scouts are for etc. I figure the channel can be used for reporting:

Gate Camp Details
SOV Timers
Bombing Targets
Ratting Moms
Roaming Gang Details


Anything else that might make someones time online a little more interesting.......and who knows....maybe intel on what your doing will be on there....Wink

Anyways the channel is up and ready for use. I will be throwing Intel details on what's going on in EC- in there and wherever else I go, so feel free to do the same for anywhere else in EVE.

And as always.........in before.."I took a dump, Is there intel on Jita in there, die in your hound lately,..........and ah yes.......umad?"....Rolling Eyes

Fly safe :)

The problem with such channels, at least the ones that report bomb targets or say freighters slow boating, is that if such channels ever became even somewhat useful the standard MO for moving a freighter or whatever would be to keep the channels open to know if you've been spotted allowing for easy logoffskis or altering of plans.

These channels already exist in many forms just with different groups having access that tend to be alliance or friendlies populated. Perhaps making new friends or perhaps joining alliances that already think ahead might be in order Snot.

You made my point……all the existing channels are for blues. This channel is for any intel EVE wide that may result in an opportunity for a fight, gank, hot drop, or whatever plain and simple. Dissecting its use case by case is a little weak for obvious reasons...Rolling Eyes

If I was a freighter pilot I would have the channel up when I was moving stuff as well. Doesn’t mean when I see someone post..”Anyone got a gang close to Vale convo me”….I’m going to log off or grow an extra heightened sense of awareness more than the usual freighter pilot has….Wink

Make no mistake, I couldn’t care less if you join and I’m not begging anyone to. It’s simply an option available for anyone at anytime to supply intel on opportunities they know of. I could easily see a gate camp getting bored and post their location with an alt just to attract a fight. Win or lose it beats sitting on your ass sometimes.

If someone has a SOV timer ticking down and wants to turn the system into a meat grinder, evemail me the system and timer and I will post them in the channel details. Got a POS timer? Evemail me and I will load them to the channel also.

In a game that’s supposed to be a sandbox I figured an idea like this might be useful.

Fly safe..
