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.

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!

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f

What are all of these buttons for?

My snooty villager, Naomi, wants to move out. I picked her because she is a blue cow with some wild makeup but we have not really bonded like I have with Savannah and Mitzi... oh wait yeah wrong game. So, my clan is almost finished the second step of the Manhunt in Division 2. We just have one more zone to clear and then we can hunt down the secondary target to reveal the next... err wait, waaaaaiittt... Sorry about that. Resetting things. What do I want to do? That has been my problem for a while now. If I play Eve, what do I want to do in Eve? While I did PvP it was never my draw. The old PvE sucks. The new PvE may be okay but do I want to do it? Who am I? What am I? And do I need to be unique and interesting? I think that I may want to look in small wormholes and try a exciting, fragile life. With some of the ships that are available I can, perhaps, have an interesting life where I may or may not fall prey to someone but it does not have to define what
