Cruiser Roam - Fail

I guess I am risk adverse and lacking the proper mindset for PvP.

I still don't understand how 4 T1 cruisers and a rifter are going to come out positively with 2 talos and 2 hurricanes. Then, a falcon decloaks and everyone just explodes in a nice, bright light.

I don't consider possibly killing a ship that is bigger then I am but ultimately everyone dying in fleet a good fight or fun. Gods knows ships are going to explode. I have zero problems with throwing myself into the fray for the greater good of the fleet and battle. Sometimes shit just isn't going to work out and bad things will happen. I don't understand what the point is of taking a battle that you know is bad from the very start. I really, really am not getting it. I'm trying to do things that others swear to me is fun. It's not anymore fun to do then it was conceptually.

I also don't like null sec. I have not yet found anything about it that makes it worth going into over empire space.

I don't think I should win everything. I don't understand jumping into something that you can not emerge from in the vague chance that maybe something magical will happen. I guess that makes me risk adverse and not fun. Perhaps, I don't have the proper mindset for PvP. When everything about a situation says 'don't go' and you ignore that all to go, I guess you shouldn't be surprised.

The sad part is I fell to peer pressure to go and do something I didn't want to and didn't have the comfort level to do. But I always think I must be missing something since other people want to do it.

I guess what I'm considering to be fun in the game is to miserable and boring. Its one of those moments when you wonder if paths are dividing again.

I do like the game however. I guess I'm just going to have to change who I hang out with. Such is the life of a social game.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…
