Crash the Camp; Sub Revenge

Earlier in the evening we had an offer of a brawl with Eve Uni. While people assembled themselves one of our drakes was caught in a gate camp several systems away.

Undock to go save him...

But it was to late. Sigh. He podded his way to where we were and we shipped him into something else so that we could brawl with Eve Uni.

After we waved goodby to them we shipped up and went hunting. The gatecamp was run by our new favorte friends. I was given word that they caught someone from Eve Uni in their trap as they passed through...

Not a problem.

Nice little fleet.

With word that they were still there, we streaked towards them. At least one of them would be GCC due to their attack on Eve Uni. That meant they would not be on gate but would be close by. With two bait ships sent in, they pounced. Bait jumped gate and the rest of us came in afterwards.

The situation was not nearly as pretty. Their drake/drake/cane/rapier quickly turned into a cane/rapier escaping and two drake wrecks.

The tables were turned. We slunk past them and crept into the next system. We tried to engage them a few more times but people were starting to yawn and post battle fatigue mixed with it being late night for many members kicked in. We headed home and broke the fleet down.

Time for some more time on SiSi for the AT Practice.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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 …
