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.

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…

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.
In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 
I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.
Since I logged …
