Com'plex' Theft

Around an hour ago, I noticed a group hanging around in system that our alliances co-corp calls home. Most of them are off in high sec hunting war targets. Why high sec? I still don't understand the appeal.

But none of them were around when I asked wtf was in their system. I think I planned to scan the system and then promptly forget.

Its been a rough day.

So, I wandered into the next system to hear one of my corpmates lose his thalos to a random gang he had decided to fight. Ender kinda asks him he if is willing to wait a few moments before he goes and tosses another ship at them.

However, the wait was to long and they vanished. Which happens. Wormholes make for an interesting flow of people sometimes.

I joined the fleet. I was floating around, scanning for some sites. While we sat on the gate I found and bookmarked a radar and mag site to do later.

However, Ender noticed the group in the alliances home system and decided to go probe them down to see what he could see.

He found them sitting on a 5/10. I was wondering why I had missed a 5/10 in the system. That is when I realized that I had forgotten to scan the system. I'd jumped out when my corpie was fighting the other group and had just forgotten to go back in at some point.

He tackled a fleet issue tempest who just sat there and let a drake tackle him. The Raven and Tornado fled before we landed. Our suspicion is that they were all one player triple boxing. The others ran back to a wormhole in system. We followed and the wormhole had POCOs up with their corp name on them.

Oh well. One less Fleet Tempest flying around.

And then there was this nice 5/10 plex all untouched and full of goodies.

So our reward for the nice 5/10 that we did all socially and carebearingly came to be a Gistum B-Type 10MN Afterburner, Gistum b-Type, Explosive Deflection Amplifier, and a Cynabal BPC.

One of my friends asked me, "Find any complexs?"

My answer, "Yeah. We killed someone and took theirs."

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…

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…

My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.
In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 
I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.
Since I logged …
