Popped but Revenged

I got popped on a gate. I jumped into the system and fucked my warp up like nothing else. I watched as a broadsword consumed my super fragile nano fit thrasher. Remembering gate camp 101 with my corp I tried to make it back to the gate but I exploded first. I was able to warp off in my pod however and get that safe.

I felt bad. My ship wasn't really fit very well but at least it was fit. It only had t1 mods on it and there where no rigs so the total value was not even a million isk. It was very similar to the way I managed to die the last time. Only, I got my pod out this time.

So I announced it to the corp and apologized. It was cool. I'm the one that felt awful. However, I had a level 5 mission to salvage before we went out on a roam.

As I often rant/lament about listening to people discuss mission running is like listening to religions collide. Level 5 missions came up and one person was discussion how you need about a dozen ships and multiple logies. Another said that a half dozen battleships was okay with a carrier.

Yet here we are, a Noctis, a battleship, and a carrier and one of us is not kicking a single bit of ass.

After the mission was finished, we went out on the roam. To be honest, we went to chase down the E-UNI fleet that was doing a low/null sec roam. Most of the fleet had already tangled with them and ripped apart their larger ships. They still had a few with them however. So, we met up with the rest of the fleet and we chased them down.

I managed to nail a thrasher. I figured, a thrasher for a thrasher is good. I felt a bit redeemed for my earlier loss.

Eve Uni kinda scattered and melted. They slipped into a high sec island to wait out their aggression timers while we waited for them. They have a Only Shoot if its Red policy. This saves you from getting a GCC (Global Criminal Countdown). We have a shoot and kill it all policy so we have reps going to keep us healthy while the gate guns try to kill us and we wait.

However, we got tired of waiting. They knew we where there and we had stuff to do. So we headed out and they slipped back into high sec. On the way through the +1 lookout called out a broadsword in the same system I had died in. I asked if it was the dude that took me out and he said yes. "Oh please, he killed me can we kill him?"

Bait time. He got baited out into the belt. He got locked and then the entire fleet jumped in. It was the most ridiculous kill mail whoring situation I have yet seen. Once everyone had him targeted with something aggressive he was rendered down into nothing in a few moments flat. He was told in local "Why." I have to admit, revenge was amazing at that moment.

A little more roaming and not much else found. The downtime notice came up and everyone headed in to station.

I'm liking this stuff.

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

Have you done your Eve Vegas Survey?

I did attend Eve Vegas to the shock of many. I'd already paid for it and allotted the time. It seemed that I should go.


I went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover as well. This is not the space to discuss those amazing places or my new Camera.

Eve Vegas was a bit harder for me to go to then I expected. I've detached from Eve for the most part these past months. It is very easy to be angry, frustrated, and bitter about the past that I lived on. The game, its development, and the players move on while I find myself emotionally stuck. That emotional stickiness does not need to be given to everyone else. Part of experiencing it was shielding people from it. But, as I accepted my items and stared down the poor gentleman that tried to put a wristband around my wrist, I realized that I wasn't in as good of a place as I had hoped to be.

That is where the Survey comes in. There are a few things that I could say and did say. A few of the questions made me want to say a bit more.

One was …

Your ideal roadmap

To try to be a bit more interesting then blogging yet another daily list of summit meetings, how about a question?

In the producer session, as we try to figure out how to fix and improve our communication with teams and how we figure out who should be gone to for features and changes, we discussed the road map.

We discussed what 'our' ideal roadmap would be. This breaks down into the individual roadmaps for each member of the CSM. After all, we are individiuals and we have different dreams for Eve. We have different goals and features that we want to move forward or go back to.

How close are we to what CCP is looking at and planning? We discussed their safety mesures to weigh the value of features. What will this feature do for Eve? It is not enough to have an ideal road map of things you want. Those things have to have value and that value needs to be enough to dedicate the time to the feature.

Do you have an ideal roadmap? A path for Eve to head in the next year or two once …
