I have been playing Eve since 2006. Since I started out I've watched a few trade hubs develop but Jita has always been the busy hive of scammers and traders that it is today -albeit things are much busier now than they used to be!
I am curious to hear from older players on how Jita was in the early days and how it grew into the monster that it has become? Is it true that Jita used to have mission agents? Is that why it first developed into a trade hub or is it more to do with it's location?
