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.

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

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

CSM9 - Day 140

The week has been the Summer Summit for CSM9. That did not mean that the world stopped for us. Things in Eve moved forward because we have the Oceanas release coming on the 22nd. CCP Fozzie has released a small interceptor tweak . Interdictors are also being retouched for fine detailing. The thread about it is up. This is not a rebalance where the ships gain complete new roles and identities. This is focused on fine tuning. I have spoken up about the fact that the situation where Titans were being bumped out of POS shields was not acceptable to me. I’ve voiced my disagreement as have other players. CCP Fozzie has posted changes to cyno usage outside of POS force fields . I am not fully happy with this change. I am happy that it will stop the Titan bumping issue. I am not happy with not being able to light cynos on shields. I feel that it will negatively affect tackling ships hugging force fields and I have expressed that. The topic came up in one of our Summit Meetings with CCP Fo
