Triage Carriers

So much happened over the weekend that I did miss some things that I remembered as we chatted over coms last night because we were bored.

Was it Friday where we dropped the triage carrier and somehow a terrible, terrible situation didn't happen?

I think so.

I started writing this last night. It has three whole lines, which is not very impressive. However, I was reading some other blogs last night and I was debating how well formed and indepth they sound. Compared to my posts, which are excited chatter babble about my day. Ahh well, I'm enjoying myself and if I gush a bit, I gush a bit.

Anyway, at one point during the previous weekend of destruction, we ran away from another fleet. They jumped a drake through. Poor drakes, they are such bait. The tank on them makes them an excellent ship to hold out for the rest of the fleet. Something said this way bad to us. Our Cynabal started to flirt as the drake shook its ass. Sure as shit, the Cynabal engaged outside of the drakes scram range and local started rippling up.

"Bail!" We're not proud. Also, their fleet turned out to be 7 drakes, 2 scimis, some hurricanes, a harpy or two a vulture, some ewar shit, then a few more drakes, a talos.... We ran.

Then we reshipped into armor ships, battleships, and a cyno. For some reason, the best idea of the night was that we were going to drop a carrier.

And we sure as shit did. A battleship fleet with two battlecruisers, now nine strong, ran out to hunt this other group down. We found them about 3 systems away. Almost thirty people in local. The huge fleet was sitting on a gate. We jumped an abaddon in and they tore into him. Then the rest of us jumped and he lit a cyno.

Now, as we discussed it later, things should have gone terribly wrong.

Our carrier dropped, and we started ripping into their fleet. The cyno ship was in 75% structure when the carrier repped its armor fully back. Their scimis started repping the harpy which was the primary. We switched to a talos and started to melt it when a nidhoggur landed. Then the falcon decloaked. We killed the talos, killed the falcon, and then melted the harpy and started chewing on a hurricane when they bailed. Thier nidhogger left the field, and they deagressed and frantically tried to get to the gate and jumped out and bailed on us. We had point on as many things as we had ships so they had to go for the gate because they were not warping out.

How did this not go badly for us? With their vulture on the field we'd not have been able to eat the drakes at any decent speed. If they had changed primaries the battlecruisers would have been toast. They focused their fire, the entire time on the abaddon.

We jumped the carrier back out as soon as it had cap and then we ran home.

This is my Low Sec Lifestyle. I love it.

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 …
