Outer Ring is perhaps the worst region in the game. As a 0.0 NPC region, everyone has access to all four of its stations, all of which are far apart. ORE stations do offer missions as well as coveted, expensive Mining Barge BPOs; as a result, all the undocks are perpetually camped for those billion-ISK drops, making mission running for the few shitty exclusive ORE items nigh impossible.

History

The longtime inhabitants of the region, NORAD, survived invasions by both Band of Brothers and the nascent GoonSwarm in large part because both alliances got bored and left as soon as the opportunity to take more valuable space arose. It does have two advantages-- the truesec is supposedly bugged, leading to higher-level battleship rats in places where they shouldn't be, and one of its constellations previously hosted a 10/10 static complex, which supposedly means that you can scan out 10/10s there more easily. Otherwise, a wasteland; since RISE abandoned the region to become a BOB pet back in January 2007, no one has bothered to claim it. Currently host to Cosmic Anomalies, and several faggot alliances and the bane of all industry-oriented pubbies.

Map One

Thanks to Raleigh for this map

  • The branches are color coded in order to be easier to read
  • The Map has very few crossed lines

Map Two

Thanks to Jacinto Naysmith for this map

Some points:

  • There are only three systems with NPC stations.
  • 2 paths that go back to Syndicate are dead ends; they go to their own little pocket of syndicate that does not connect with the rest.

Map Three

The original was made by Ombrey of the Eve-o forums. While the above map is easier to read, this map shows the truesec of each system.
