Patience brings the PewPew

I was running around earlier today, somewhere in a sleep deprived hazed. I found a few sites and happily scanned them down and ate their goodies. From what I can see, via the Dev Blogs, the newest items that are coming into the game will be found in the exploration sites. That is rather nice. I hope that it means I will have a chance to make some nice ISK while everyone is looking for these new toys.

Speaking of ISK, the market has crashed when it comes to mods. Some thing it is because there are fewer meta 0 mods to make people say 'fuck it' and reprocess everything. It is good that the meta 1-2 cost less for people, but bad for people like me. So, in the end, the changes did nerf my Salvage income. This will be a possible buff to my exploration income.

Anyway, one of my alliance mates found a hurricane that had been pewpewing folks a bit earlier. He was a -9 so the alliance mate went to see if he could get the hurricane to engage. While he did that, we set up people on each side of the system. The third exit was to a high sec pocket, and his sec status was way too low.

He flirted with my alliance mate who was in a drake. That type of fight can be interesting depending on what people are flying. He eventually docked up. We decided to hang around and wait on the gates. It's been super slow in game the last few days with the release of Diablo 3.

Patience won. After a bit the cane undocked again and hopped the gate right into our little, waiting fleet.

It was a not a fair fight for him in anyway. We then proceeded to hold him there, in structure, while our alliance mate jumped the gate and got on the killmail. Killmail whoring. However, he did a lot of the work trying to get the fight.

Killmails themselves are an interesting topic of conversation. For some people it is a brag sheet in which they say they are amazing. To me, it shows that someone actively PvPs. It lets you see what they do (groups and etc) and what fits people use from when they die. I'm not overly obsessed with the ISK efficiency. Some people are. For me, its more along the lines of showing that I am PvPing actively and regularly. A lot of people go on about their PvP experience but can't pull anything to reference it.

Free Intel, sure but the player behind the toon still matters. I'm not obsessed with them. I just like that I have a proven track record of getting out there and fighting. Only the battles that end in explosions generate killmails. Not all battles end in explosions. However, one of the things CCP was discussing was to make support characters show up on killmails. Logi take aggression for repping you and assisting you so they deserve a spot on the killmail. I think it will cause more people to not mind doing the logi thing because right now, you don't show up so it looks as if you are inactive.

Anyway, after the fight I was thinking that I shoulda taken pictures. Damn.
