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.

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
