Fitting Day

I've been fitting out my ships for a while.

The 4/10 plex from the other day did not drop an A type mod but it dropped a bunch of C types for a net haul of about 350mil. Not bad for something that took us under 10 minutes to complete.

My exploration has picked up again and I've been pulling some decent items from sites. I've been much calmer lately about selling stuff. I tend to gather a bit more and then make a high sec run when I am out of sites or need something else to do. I lost yet another covops frig, however this morning. I warped in and saw that it was a site that I can not do. Then about 30 seconds later I decloaked and the missile batteries beat the fuck out of me. Of course, I did not insure that ship. Yay me.

Anyway, I refit and all that good stuff and decided to go to bed with what I had. Once awake, I headed back down, making sure to buy some extras of the stuff I keep losing with these frigs, and got to work scanning and fitting ships.

I had to spend a bit more money fitting my Oni. The Meta 4 mods were 10mil a piece. Agh. blargh. Woe is my wallet. Ahh well, its creeping back up. I've had some pretty good scanning days recently.



Then I can't fit my T2 neuts yet. Gah. Well, I doubt I'm taking them out tomorrow and if I do I'll switch them to T1s. Still bit by bit the 4 ships got built and put together. I converted my ammo to faction ammo and made sure that all the guns were bound the ships were armed and they were ready to go.

Now I was all excited so got one of my corp mates to let me shoot him so I could rep him and see how I did. I quickly established I sucked. Especially when another corp mate bounced on, put me into deep structure and then started wailing on the corp mate in his new shiny ridiculously powerful ship. I frantically attempted to keep the corpmate alive and escape myself. Ahh, boys and their spaceships.



POS bashing means the dreds come out. I got to light the return cyno. That was my first cyno as well.
Then we decided to do a gatecamp. Here was our fleet: Protus, Hurricane, Hurricane, Raven, Abaddon, Loki, Tengu, Megathron, Navy Megathron, POroteus, Oneiras. What a nasty gatecamp we were. A poor destroyer hopped in. The bet on coms was that the Navy Mega could shoot him if he could lock him before he warped. He missed by a second and a half, so we told the guy in local. He then came back at 20k and let the Mega try to lock him again before warping off. That kind of shanangans is why Eve is so fun.



Of course, I got shot for telling the guy about the bet. my poor shields. I was armor tanked however so it wasn't a big deal. Still. Ouch.

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…

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 of A…
