Teasing the Noob doesn't always work out

I got into a motorcycle wreck last night so that means plenty of time over the next few days to play Eve! (I'm okay and it wasn't my fault).

While I have not yet found another 350mil isk skill book, I have found something even better. I found a 4/10 DED Complex and it dropped a stack of high grade shiny mods to the tune of 1.3bil isk. That is split between me and my corp mate. I found the 'plex, he tanked the 'plex, I assisted him in clearing the plex, so we split the loot.

So I will gain about 500-700mil isk from the sales. I am quite happy. That will bring my isk earnings for the week to over a bil.

I have a little system loop that I do for scanning. Scanning isn't fast for me yet. I have to hunt down the sites, bookmark the entire system, hop a combat ship over, do the site and open the containers while keeping my eye out for local and such things. Then drag the items out. I'm willing to take the smaller sites that others ignore.

I was in my alliance's home system scanning when I found a complex. I asked them if anyone wanted it since they were hovering about not doing much and it was right in their system. They said sure because it was named Dirty Site and when I went to give it to them, said they were kidding. The site sucked and not to believe anything they said. Just good natured trolling teasing.

Teasing. I know I'm the only one excited about my new skills. Still, just say no thanks. That's fine, I learned my lesson and didn't offer them anything else.

At the end of that scan the 4/10 complex popped up at the same time my corp member whom I did a previous 4/10 with came up. I asked him if he wanted to do it and he said hell yeah. So we cleared it and popped out with a 1.3bil in Type A and Type C mods.

I am very, very glad that I am getting into scanning. Word is that CCP is going to nerf NPC loot a bit. They are dropping drone minerals and replacing them with bounties. Bounties may be cut across the board (I'm expecting it). There is rumor about lowering the tag amounts at the LP stores and they are going to take T1 mods out of drops. All this means that my salvage income will tank a good bit.

Thankfully I am advancing. I am enjoying the fact that I can do more for myself when it comes to my income. I was not earning very much when I was running missions. I've not put the time into running level 4 missions because I have so many other things to do. The exploration thing works quite well for me with a little bit of thought. Some, I have to skip, but all in all I'm easily pulling 50-100 mil out a day from the sites. Some days, like today, I find nothing. I did find two in my home system. One I could not do alone and one that someone else had started.

But I'm sure I'll find something and even if I do not, that is fine as well. It can't be every day which is what keeps it interesting.

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
