Here are a few pictures that highlight my corporation’s venture into Wormhole space to strike it rich.
The daily routine was scanning for sites, mining ABCs with Orca boosts, and compressing Ore down for transport to Jita.
Our capacity to haul large amounts of Ore out of Wormhole to Jita increased significantly when we got a Rorqual into our C6.
Boosted Hulks mining Arkonor was king at the time. Each full jetcan was worth around 13-16M.
Orca boosted mining operation.
We once caught a Tengu with a tank that we could not break. After toying around with it for a while, we eventually let the pilot got and gave her the location of a return Wormhole as we destroyed her scanning alt.
As we build up our PVE arsenal, we needed Carrier support to run the C5/C6 sites. I paid 715M for a Thanatos during this time and I still am in possession of this specific Carrier.
Purchasing skills for the Carrier. Notice that we used the MOTD to communicate on the current Wormhole status.

As we became more proficient in Unknown space, we started to train up skills for Tengu, Drake, and other PVE specific ships.
Our weekly hauls started to get large and larger as our mining capacity increased.

Another Thanatos shot.
Carrier assisted site running.
This is a shot of Megacyte, which was king at the time. Due to the large availability of ABC ore in Wormhole space, mining groups like us were driving the price down.
When you inhabit the highest class of Wormhole space, you are bound to run into some major players. Here is a shot of an Aperture Harmonics’ Dreadnought bring used to mass collapse a connecting Wormhole that was connecting our two systems.

You spend a lot of time looking at these in Unknown space.
One of the most powerful things in Unknown space is Intel. If you have the knowledge, you can dictate everything. The little Helios was one of the most useful ships for me during my time in Wormhole space.
Defending Tengu shot.
Space potato beauty shot. We had a Remote Repping Dominix doctrine that served us well.
Protecting our home.
Every few weeks the rate of respawn for all the sites would dwindle down to almost nothing. Like nomads we would find a new home and setup shop to strip the system.
Extreme hatred for the POS/Reaction UI.
Capital ship shot.
Wonders if there will ever be days like that again in EVE. Adventure with a sense of Gold Rush.
Always good to save screenshots, never know when they will be useful again.
Those are awesome pics.
Sitting here remembering all those good times. Bringing a tear to my eyes 🙂
i like the ‘Another Thanatos shot.’ it’s my desktop now.
I would nearly make me want to go back to W Space
Lived in a seperate wormhole with haav0c at the same time this was happening with DRK! These were the good ole’ days!
