Thank you Drop Gods

Oh drop gods, how sweet are thou... unto thy will I thank you for these gifts...

I had taken my items to the trade hub earlier and dumped it on the market. I decided that I wasn't in the mood to move my Viator for some reason so I did the run in a rookie ship.

(woo... driving and not getting run over!)

After the morning and a nap, I woke up refreshed. My sleep schedule and work schedule are completely trashed but, whatever. I went out and discovered that the site that I wanted to run was still there. However, I had no one to help me run it.

After I wandered over to another system, I made myself feel better with some radar and mag sites. I then hopped into the high sec system that hovers alone with a static 2/10 plex and found a 4/10 plex. That, I decided, to try to do on my own.

It went okay, I have to admit. I made it through although it took a while. However, the drop was shit. While it was a faction shiny, it wasn't anything worth anything. The damage I took getting it cost more to repair then the fucking mod costs on the market.

Mildly, disheartened I managed to convince some help to attack the 5/10 plex that was *still* there and untouched. With a bit of encouragement I got him into his Machariel and into the plex we went!

Oh the loot gods were waiting for me. This plex had been around for about 12 hours. In about 15 minutes we cleared it and nailed a cynabal blue print copy and a b-type invul mod of some sort worth about 700mil.

Oh, I gloated. I love finding expensive shinies and pulling a bil worth of stuff out of a site makes me happy erry day. So, as I gloated I re scanned my home system and found the exact same 5/10 plex again. Woot! This time I got a corp members help and pulled yet another cynabal BPC out of the plex.

Plus I found 2 radar sites to top it all off with.

Then, we went and did 4 missions and I wound up with a Noctis full of salvage.

I did fuck up and get uncloaked on a gate with my scout. I must not have made sure my cloak kicked in. That bit of inattention caused me to lose my covops. Whoops. Fortunately, my copmate recovered my covops cloak and the probe launcher did not drop so he got shit from the wreck :)

My covops toon is not in my corp. Because this guy is not from 'our area' he did not know that it was my alt. I was in system in my noctis salvaging when this happened. So, he started to comment to my corp mate who came to get my shit how he just missed an afk covops pilot. We trolled him lightly but he didn't want to do a 1v1 with another Cynabal.

However, an hour later I bounce through the gate in my Noctis and my wreck is still there. With all my shit in it. Plus, a wreck full of capboosters. So I loot everything and salvage my wreck, pulling an armor plate off of it. That armor plate almost covers the cost of the covops.

Win with a lose. Very nice.

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways.

So am I.

Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills.

I don't like them.

That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it.

When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said that t…

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…

Nothing and Everything Changes

I can mark the passage of time from Eve with Intuition's age. He turned four last month. Today, Corbexx sent me a chat on Steam and we spent hours chattering about this and that as if it was yesterday. That is friendship.

One of the things we noticed is that our NDA is about to expire. That and the leavings of several people left us gossiping up a storm. The NDA was never a good NDA but we chose to respect the spirit of it even if the letter of it had the strength of  wet tissue paper.

Life is fine. The husband got a promotion at the start of the year. I am up for one at the end of the month that will be a fascinating life change. We also got our rental property goals started. For any that wonder how much of a basement dweller I actually am. My husband has the entire basement of the new house.

I think of Eve quite often. For one, I have it in my reddit feed. I mostly skim the titles and skip the topics. The general mood has not changed even if the people saying it has.

I saw that …
