Relive the exploits of legendary EVE Online assassins

Michael Zenke

Almost a legend among EVE Online players, the acts of the Guiding Hand Social Club spurred a well-known article in the UK's PC Gamer way back in 2005. That piece, and interest in other high-profile incidents like the EIB scam, led to other articles like Jim Rossignol's Escapist piece on the Great Scam.

That original article has never been 'nicely' available online, until now. As the jokesters on the CVG site say, "This article was originally published in the September 2005 issue of PC Gamer (UK edition). It has literally taken us that long to upload it."

The article, Murder, Incorporated, takes a look behind the scenes at the dirty world of online contract killings inside EVE space. Modern politiking and corporate warfare has no doubt made this seem like child's play. Just the same, Tom Francis' artful wordplay makes the infiltration of Ubiqua Seraph by the Club less like guild drama and more like a Cold War-era tale of cloak and dagger politics. It's well worth a read.
