Laptops and PvP

I have a very nice alienware laptop. it is the M14X. Its pretty damn fantastic and plays Eve well. But, I admit that I am spoilt by my huge gaming monster with my duel 27 inch monitors.

That means I've slacked about setting up my laptop to actually play. The last time I really played on it I was mining. Now I'm not mining anymore but my PvP character has nothing set up. I corrected that today. After a kinda fail day trying to get some stuff done in London I decided to hang out on Eve while my body recuperated from walking the city. I'm super tired as I write this.

I was convinced to log into teamspeak and come help take out two ships. I slipped into my armored rifter to do some tackling and went to join in the fun. I quickly failed at everything because half the people were on comes and several in chat and it just didn't work out at all.

So, I loaded up team speak, dug my headset which I had dragged with me, and went out with them. Second try: much more successful.

The person doing the +1 had two thrashers on gate. Everyone was trying to convince everyone else to take gateguns. Its common enough in high sec. As we sat on the other side of the gate a hurricane popped in and just sat there. The guy had a 5.0 sec status and basically started calling us names on local. The thrashers from the other system jumped in and for some reason he thought they were attached to us.

He decided to play locking games so we played them back. Once he locked me I stopped orbiting the gate and started to orbit him. This went on for a while. However, we had a Vaga heading to us from one of our corps. Basically, we were low on the DPS.

However, the hurricane is just sitting on the gate mocking us. Its pretty funny because he is just setting himself up for it. Eventually, he releases drones. At that point, I bounce to the nearest planet. Its very obvious that he can take gateguns, kill me, and jump the gate before we can take him out. I suspect that was his idea.

As I warped off the Vaga was warping in. I counted for a second and warped back as the Vaga engaged. I tackled, the blackbird jamed, and he was rendered into space dust. Gate guns then started to rock my rifter and I quickly found myself eating gateguns. I warped off and managed to leave at half structure.

Teeheehee. Rifters tanking gateguns. How amusing.

This post left unspell checked because I am tired.

Edit: Spell checked it the next day :D

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

Maybe one day!

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

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
