Most Famous EVE Player?

While watching The Mittani’s interview over at Ten Ton Hammer I began to wonder, who is the most widely known player in the EVE universe?  Heroes and villains, CEOs to corporate turncoats, alliance leaders to low sec privateers.  Let’s let Google decide who the winner is!

CHRIBBA 739,000

THE MITTANI 52,000

CRAZY KINUX 41,900

ROC WIELER 33,500

KUNGUTSUMEN 30,400

JADE CONSTANTINE 24,200

SIR MOLLE 21,100

LETRANGE 16,800

MYNXEE 10,500

HAARGOTH AGAMAR 9,390

VUK LAU 4,770

DIERDRA VAAL 4,090

KIRITH KODACHI 3,990

WENSLEY 2,420

DARIUS JOHNSON 730 

A clear winner is Chribba, who maintains a huge online presence as the owner and operator of numerous EVE related websites including EVE-Files, EVE-Agents, and EVE-Search.  He also apparently has a Dreadnaught in the high security system of Amarr and can often be found mining veldspar in his “Veldnaut.”  Further reading will tell you that he is widely known as a player worthy of extreme trust and offers brokering services for the purchase of super capital ships including Titans.  I personally use his EVE-Search program on an almost daily basis to read the forums throughout the work day. 

The Mittani was also not a surprising second place.  He keeps a large internet presence with his regular featured articles on Ten Ton Hammer with his Sins of a Solar Spymaster series.  The Mittani can also be found almost daily on the CAOD forums at EVE-Online.  Assuming that you can trust what he says concerning the formation of the Goonfleet Intelligence Agency and his pioneering of the espionage meta-game within EVE, you would be extremely hard pressed to find another player who has had more influence over 0.0 politics in the game. 

I was very surprised to find Darius Johnson, former CEO of Goon Fleet, to be so low on the list.  Given his recent presentation at FanFest, you would assume he would have a higher ranking.  Perhaps he just does not maintain a large online presence outside of the private Goon Forums themselves.

  1. Beowolf Schaefer – 8290 hits, not to shabby if I say so myself.

  2. Hey, #4 is a great starting point.

    Very interesting experiment. I guess I will have to market myself more.

  3. Hey you both just increased your count by one just by posting here!

  4. Make that 2!

  5. The numbers fluctuate all the time though. I just googled Mynxee and it said 21,800 hits. LOL. Neat list though, just fun to be on it!

  6. Well I grouped them all with Eve Online and then the player name in quotes to try and filter through anyone else out there with a similiar name.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Hmmm… late to the party as always. Am kind of surprised I don’t get more simply because I have the most common name. Oh well. Yay for Eve fame!

    Edit “Results 1 – 10 of about 429,000 for wensley” – ahem
