No thank you Mr Trap, not interested this morning

I scanned down a 4/10 this morning in a neighboring system. Space was pretty quiet so I decided to go and do it. It meant a reship on my side to my armor cane and an undocking of my oni to keep me repped. Yes, I am terrible at PvE but at least I get it done.

It worked out beautifully. The only time it got a bit warn was when I was waiting to take all the aggro in the second room.

Reps me! Reps me!

I read lots of bullshit from people who do not live, nor even dip their toes into low sec and null sec about what a risk free environment we have.

When I was in the second room, a member of a corp that is unhappy with us passed through in their pod. I decided to pick up the pace and went for the faction rat who would drop my loot. If that corp was up and awake, it would not take them that long to find me. My scout was sitting at the gate, cloaked. I try to be careful. Inattention has already gotten me killed stupidly, recently.

I scooped the loot and found out that Eve has forgiven me for the not very brilliant drops recently. I scored a Gistum C-Type Adaptive Invulnerability Field which is about 470mil from what I see. *love* I'll offer it up to my corp mates before I take it off to sell it. This is the most expensive shiny I have popped all by myself so far I think.

As I was looting and salving the wreck (love T2 salvage as well) the same pod from the same corp came back in with someone else. Scan says, "Tengu, Drake".

Interesting. I get myself collected and start moving my toons. The Tengu vanishes without dropping probes. The drake hangs around. It smells like bait and a trap to me.

Now, do they think I'm going to go for this drake? Do they think I've not noticed the Tengu? The Tengu is cloaked for a while and then leaves system. The drake is still fucking around. I dock everyone, and watch with my scout. The drake continues to shake its ass obviously on the gate. I continue to ignore it. Then bingo... the rest of the fleet jumps in.

Drake, Talos, Scimi, Drake, Tengu.

Hello Mr Trap, I'm not interested today. They left system. Local stayed quiet. I scouted myself back home and settled my shiny into my hanger.

People ask me how do I make my ISK? I carebear, just like erryone else.

Bed time, work calls.

  1. Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements
    would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design.

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…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…
