Breakfast explosions

I woke up at 0830 again local time. My trusty breakfast of Japanese rice balls accompanied me as I logged on and was convinced to come out in my rupture and do a little bit of roaming.

There was a gatecamp in a nearby system that they decided to breakup. About half the group was near the system and the rest of us ran to the titan to hotdrop. It was not a big fleet, about seven of us to their 6. We had a mix of battleships, battlecruisers, cruisers, and a logi. They had battleships and battlecrusiers. They even had a smartbombing Tempest.

They were baited and engaged. Once everyone engaged we popped the cyno and landed. This is where things got a bit awkward. We didn't spread our points like we were supposed to. I think that the call on the tempest got people distracted. One of our bait ships popped as we landed and when the cyno lit the camp started running for the hills.

The only weird part is that we fleeted with a member of the corp that has wardeced both of our groups. I admit, I'm a bit bitter about these things. I'm all for us shooting each other but the wardec is a bit much. However, I didn't question it and his ship is the one that went pop.

We looted and gave him all of the loot. Classy folk we are. However, I'm not all that happy to be running with people who wardeced us. The reason is more complex then gateguns. Its all sorts of ego issues and penis size problems. It makes me shake my head but I dislike feeling as if I have to watch them as much as the people that are not fleet purple.

The random roams are lovely. I feel so much more informed with what I am doing these days. I still get into arguments about the just dive in and shoot school of thought. I do understand that you have to start shooting and cant just learn but I just can not agree that the best way to learn is to take pure ignorance and try to learn from your mistakes.

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

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

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f
