Medicore Fleet

Today, we took the Mediocre fleet out and tried to do the pewpew.

One of my alliance mates had an interesting tangle today where he had a fleet of Eve Uni members attempt to take on his Maelstrom. It did not go that well for that fleet, although he said that two of them did make it off the field.

For others of us, here we sit in a familiar scene. This is station camping I guess. It seems to be the inevitable outcome lately. We are sitting here. Now and then the station disgorges a frigate or cruiser. We try to kill it. Because we are terrible at station camping we don't have an instalock anything with our fleet. It is a rather hit or miss practice with lots of cheering and booing as we lock and miss.

This is not how the mediocre fleet started or why it was formed. The fleet name was in fact given birth by a comment after it was formed. Before this moment, it was just us logging in and fleeting up to go visit the war front for a little while.

Today, we are defined as a medicore fleet because of this:

Engaged a harbi that agressed on the station, undocked, cyno lit up, deagressed, mediocre fleet jumped in had roughly 20seconds till i could dock, was unsuccessfull and went popped soon after. At least we stopped the pirates from getting their spin counters up! :D

The mediocre quality consisted of four drakes, three canes, a harby, a keres, and two scimies. With twenty four people in local we decided to bring along logistic to help extend the fights and balance everything. However, one of the Eve Uni rifters also shot the Eve Uni Talos so I guess we had a rifter on our side as well.

It didn't quite work that way.

The War has not been as eventful as expected after the chest beating and 'come at me bro's' tossed around. Of late, we jump into system and they dock up. We've been cutting our fleet in half sometimes. They have taken booty shaking classes in an attempt to up their appeal. We were told that we come at the wrong times to fight. Sadly, our lives can not be dictated and I'm unable to avoid going to work so that I can log on at a more convent time. We work with what we have.

I'm not sure we are doing this right. We keep having to wander off on our normal roams to find fights. In fact, business is as normal, if not calmer now that they won't come out of the station. I'm a little puzzled.

Anyway, after the fight we were accused of dropping 12-24 ships.

Comment:
LSC undocked on command to engage harbinger WT. Cyno followed to drop 1-2 dozen, I was primaried, scrambled, and dropped before I could get range.

While amusing, no, we dropped 4. The rest of the fleet warped in. We did burn him down. I'm not sure what is expected when you are running around in an ewar cruiser. We keep trying to jump into system and get fights. If we spike local, we are not getting anything. The 'battles' are all being played on top of the station these days.

Why did we drop anyone?

Why not is really the question.

Also, we had ten people counting the 4 that dropped in.

However, as we landed on grid people started to scatter. Grabbing points and shooting whatever could be shot became important. We had a ridiculousness moment when the Talos was called a Naga and people kept going "What Naga? What Naga?"

The blackbird was immediately taken down. Then the Naga aka THALOS was shoot as was the Tempest. The Tempest deaggressed so we put a bit of focus into it, losing a handful of frigates we might have been able to shoot.

Ahh the moments. After we were done, we tried some frigate chasing. They'd often just warp off or dock. We also tried pod grabbing, but the damn things are hard to lock and fast.

We stayed however. After all, someone else might come out. We chased the people sitting off of the station, probed out and popped a blackbird, nailed a thorax, and in general attempted to have epic battles.

Some Tuskers were also in system and managed to have a little fight near the Bosena gate. We also tried to hop into that but they took care of business before we could get on grid.

Thanks to our incredibly short attention span we heard that there was a Reha next door so we ran that way to see if we could find it.

Edit to add:

We didn't get the Reha, but we were able to steal the large caldari tower that they were unanchoring and pop the mammoth. :D Win!

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 …
