Wardec

I logged in with an evemail on each account. I was a bit puzzled. While wildly popular, I do not often get Evemail, much to my sadness.

One of the other pirate corps wardeced us. We fly with them and we shoot at them and they at us all of the time. It seems that the relationship has always been a level thing. So, when the war dec came in I wondered what had happened.

It seems that they are unhappy that when they pewpew with us they have to deal with gate/station guns since they are all flashy red. We stay yellow because being flashy red is inconvenient. Therefor, the wardec is to level the playing field, per them.

I was going to comment how we are not technically 'pirates' or 'outlaws' because we stay above flashy red. However, this kind of defines it for me. We're a low sec PvP corp. We are called pirates.

Hmmm. At first I had a rush of 'oh shit'. Then I realized I didn't care. I'm cautious of them anyway and never hang around them. A day ago, they asked us to come probe out the carrier that I didn't get on the kill mail for. I dunno, it makes me roll my eyes. I was worried for my high sec shenanigans but then I realized that they don't do high sec.

I'm not dropping corp and running. Low sec is still just as dangerous as it was before. I didn't trust the group then and I am glad that I didn't get warm, fuzzy feelings for them as I have another corp we run with. This corp even says that they are not blue to anyone or anyone blue to them.

This is why I am here. Sure, there is the newbie thrill of it all. At first I had a 'should I stay in station and play my alts?' moment. Then I realized that no, nothing has changed. The funny part is that I go out of town for 10 days next week. I will still play, but my login will be from England. They may or may not get tired of it. It is their isk to spend. I am sure that there will be others in the future.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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 …
