Return of an MTU Hunter

A few months ago I decided to take a break from EVE due to personal reasons, I have now returned to continue my journey, after all, those MTUs aren’t going to pop themselves.

EVE has changed a little in the few months I’ve been away, with a permanent free trial being added to the game, meaning that you can now play EVE (with trial limitations) indefinitely, for free. I want to make it clear that EVE going “free to play” is not the reason I’ve returned, I was coming back anyway, and besides, I love my shiny T2 ships and modules too much to not subscribe. I am excited at the prospect of having a lot more potential friends to play with though.

When I logged back into EVE a few days ago, the first thing I noticed was a number of EVE mails waiting for me. I wish I could have been there to reply to these mails as they came in, but everyone needs a break at some point:

EVE Mail

EVE Mail

Win Anin’s killmail can be found here, also if you look at her killboard, you can see she racked-up quite a few MTU kills. Lady Mordea’s killboard can be seen here, she also managed to pop a few MTUs. I’m very happy that people found my guide useful, put it into practice, and had fun with it.

EVE Mail

This is a little late now, but I’ll link my current fits here for anyone interested: Hecate and Svipul. Both fits take you to the limit of CPU and PG, so ensure you have good core fitting skills before attempting to use them.

It’s not every day someone creates a corp in your honour, the sentiment is very much appreciated. Here is manxman69’s killboard, he has killed an impressive number of MTUs thus far. Keep up the good work!

I have received a few more EVE mails which I will be posting at a later date in a seperate blog entry. If you wish to send me a mail, please do so, I enjoy reading them and reply to almost all of them. EVE mails weren’t the only thing waiting for me upon my return. I had been added as a contact with neutral/good/excellent standing to no less than 10 different people, 1 of whom had also sent me a mail. I also had an application to join my corporation, which had unfortunately timed-out a long time ago.

Now that I’m back, it’s time to return to the crazy world of MTU molestation, and as you can see from my killboard, I am slowly easing my way back into it. I’m also close to achieving 500 MTU kills, I think reaching a milestone like that deserves a medal, don’t you?

Empty You

Some time after starting MTU hunting I decided to create a new corporation dedicated to the project, so I left my old highsec ganking corp and founded Empty You [EMTU].

Empty You

Yes, friendly fire is legal.

I do wonder, was the obvious pun based on the acronym “MTU” intended by CCP when they created them? If anyone knows the answer for certain, please let me know.

I’m happy with this corp name, and it will remain somewhat relevant even after I finish this project and eventually return to ganking. I’m not too happy with the corp logo though, I tried to make it look like an MTU, but I’m sure it could be done a lot better. If anyone reading this can come up with a better logo, post it in the comments or send me a mail in-game, you’ll be rewarded for your time. I also need to change the corp URL since the EVE Wiki no longer exists, I’ll use the URL for this blog instead.

Corporation Killboard

Whilst I consider MTU Hunting to be very much a solo career choice, the corp is open for membership regardless. So if you want a corp to rest an alt in, steal the whopping 5.2m ISK in the corp wallet, or try to AWOX me, send in an application today! If you are relatively new to EVE, and genuinely interested in hunting down MTUs and wish to join, just be aware that I choose activities such as ganking and MTU popping because I am online very sporadically throughout the day. Doing activities like these allows me to log on for half an hour and feel like I have “achieved” something by the time I log off again, even if I only popped one MTU, or a shuttle, or something. For that reason, you shouldn’t join this corp on your main character, you’d be better off joining a corp with more members and active recruitment. I’m always happy to teach and give tips on scanning down MTUs to anyone who contacts me in-game anyway.

Which reminds me, I’ll be putting up a step-by-step guide to hunting down MTUs on this blog in the near future, it will have lots of pretty screencaps and everything, so keep an eye out for that.
