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

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
