Dominix

I purchased a Dominix a few weeks ago before I could fly it. Prices were low so I grabbed it.

Yesterday, I was able to start flying it. The Dominix is a drone boat and a battleship. I didn't buy it for its personal firepower, I got it as a drone boat for logistic support in the level 4 missions that I do with my corp and friends.

Being able to get into a ship and move it around on Eve does not mean that you can fly it or fly it well. A well skilled player in a much smaller ship will destroy a newbie like me in a big ass ship like the Domi. However, I'm not trying to kill other people and I use it for a particular type of group play right now. Therefore I am fine with my choice.

The nullsec players that I met scolded me for rushing. They said I need to stick with frigates and fly them until I can fly them perfectly (meaning tech 2 weapons and tech 3 ships) and then I can move up to the next class.

I can see the point of this opinion. However, I have several different styles of game play. I have my solo play, my play with my friends who are about the same game age as me, my play with my experienced corp mate and my game play in low sec with my pirate. I use different ships for all of these tasks. I am not a bad ass in any of these ships but they all have differences.

So, after I picked and chose and hoped for the best we set out to go and play a little and do some shake downs.

It is a nice ship.

My salvaging abilities as I duel box are getting a bit better. The Noctis is an amazing ship. I am salvaging my level 3's and the level 4's. When I work as a group it is split. When I work alone its all mine. Tasty, tasty salvage has really been doubling and tripling what I bring in. I rarely bring in less then a mill from a mission with a lot of things to shoot.

I also had a container full of salvage I had forgotten about. I got it off of my pirate's level 4's right before I went on vacation. He burns through the missions and I salvage them. It is a lovely combo and it brings me serious cash. He did about 4 or 5 missions that night. I salvaged most of them and wound up with about 27 million. For me, that is good money. Now, when I salvage his level 5 missions I wind up with that much off of one or two. However, those are in low sec and a bit more dangerous of an undertaking.

I do not use my Noctis. I use a Catalyst. It is fast, it is agile, and it is cheap to replace.

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday so yay for unallocated skill points.

Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked.

In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end of A…

My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.
In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 
I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.
Since I logged …
