And right over here, we have Alludra (Hey, AIE, I think you’re awesome). This week we are joined by special guests Hoots and Lanctharus who are here to talk to us about AIE in EVE. Welcome!

Ok, we’ll be digging into EVE shortly, but first, let’s cover this week’s news…

AIE News

We need your guildie of the month nominations! Since the officers can’t be everywhere and see everything that everyone does, Jedhai needs you guys (yes, you AIE!) to give him some nominations. There is an ongoing post in the community section of the fourms, you can also PM him as well, or send an email to And, speaking of guildie of the month, congrats to our winners from July: Khatlyn and Tanaria from Final Fantasy XIV. Khatlyn and Tanaria are married in real life, and in game they are both super helpful people. To help everyone else get know our awesome guildmates better, Jedhai conducted a short interview with them, available on the guild website,

And, in just under three weeks, the celebration of all things Frogpants will be occurring at the Snowbird Ski resort near beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah! Get more information at, including the schedule of events, a list of guest, and a link for the last few remaining tickets. Also, take a look on the Frogpants forums, there is a whole section dedicated to Nerdtacular, including people looking to coordinate rides! Also, there is a meetup for the event on our meetup site. AND, if you can’t go, and want to hang out with local guildies, use the meetup site to plan any Real Life guild events! the site is www.meetup.com_alea_iacta_est.


Summer of Love is coming! We are looking to have the schedule for our annual Summer of Love soon, though due to a scheduling conflict with the tail end of Nerdtacular, we will be pushing things back by a week. But don’t worry, A COOP, a Wedding, and shenanigans are being planned. And, of course, the very important Remembrance Day!

And even though San Diego Comicon didn’t give the fans what they were dying for (Trailer!), there was a fair bit of WOW Movie News- including posters featuring both Durotan and Lothar. Wowhead and the Nerdist both have a good wrap up of the panel- plus, there has been a promise of a real preview in November, probably at Blizzcon. And, every report from SDCC has said that the footage was amazing.


Not related to SWTOR directly, but additional amazing news from SDCC- there was a three minute Episode 7 behinds the scene reel that was shown at Comicon and quickly put up on youtube. It MAY of driven a number of adults to tears. Seriously, if you have not seen it, go watch it now!

Are you in SWTOR and want the Cantina Speeder? Some of our generous guild mates have been kind enough to share extra codes on the forums.

This week on SWTOR Escape Podcast #98, @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-98 talk about the official and unofficial community resources available for SWTOR outside the game: podcasts, websites, videos, blogs, streams and tools. They talk about some of their favorites in each category and where you can go for more.They also cover other game news for the week from SWTOR in general and from our guild, Alea Iacta Est. And, a huge congrats to our friends over at the Escape Podcast, as they near their 100th episode!

The folks in Final Fantasy are well on the way for the components needed for the workshop console panel. Materials to make the components or components for future phases/item pieces are being stored on tab 2 of the FC chest.

And with that, let’s get back to Hoots and Lanc and find out what’s going on with AIE in EVE..



Okay, that’s a lot of reading. What’s the summary?

Summary: you don’t need to bring out massive fleets with giant ships to capture sovereign space any more. You just need to control the battlefield with this little doo-dad called and entosis link.
