What an weekend

Not in a good way.

I missed out on a very exciting weekend full of huge battles and ass stomping on the part of my alliance. I missed most of the drama of burn Jita as well. I was enjoying the feeds when I got to glance at them.

I also managed to low my Myrm (finally) down in low sec. Due to my inattention as well. As always, you get comfortable and you make mistakes. I made mine because I got distracted and missed someone scanning me down. Fast scanners are fast and you have to stay on top of things. I was very tired, to tired to be playing and distracted and he landed and I was like shit.

One of the irritating things, was that as he landed on me and I tried to warp off, I had no warp options. This happened a few times and then they popped up. Yay me. So he tackled me and I asked for help. The only person nearby was buzzing around in a frigate. I knew I was going to die. He'd been after me for about two months and I had been giving him the slip.

So I sighed, and started to fight back. I knew I was going to die. My T1 fit shield Myrm is a PvE ship played by my non PvP toon. Its a decent enough fit to survive a bit in low sec and I got him into armor before he took me down.

I put a simile face in local when he tackled me. No reason not to have a pleasant attitude about it. He said "Goodbye" and I said "Yup" as I popped and warped off. I was annoyed but I was mostly annoyed because I had just finished a really good mag site and had about 40mil in my hold in salvage. That will teach me not to drop off between sites from now on. Frustrated, irritated, etc, very much so. It is what it is. I've been doing a good job keeping people away from me and today I screwed up.

I was able to see the new affects in the nice new format CCP made for us to see that I was tackled.

When I logged back on later, my CEO says he is going to have to harass me for my fit. My fit is fine, it may not be the best but it is what my toon is capable of. I've been playing a toon for PvP that I shouldn't be. Therefor, I'll stop and use my other toon with her battle cruiser instead. She would probably have won that fight as well. Such is the cost of learning.

I lose a ship and I learn. Considering its the third time I've been popped in PvP on that toon in five months, not to bad.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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