Oh, you didn't expect me to take GCC?

Instead of going to bed like a good girl, I spent some time ratting and playing with FRAPS. Hopefully I'll have something to put up. I have some concepts...

Anyway, there I was buzzing around minding my business ratting when the only other person in system undocks in a Rupture. There is only one belt in the system, I'm at it, and I'm in a Jag. A quick look at him shows that he is a 4 year old toon. My estimates of it being a complete fail rupture are somewhat low. I'm the cautious type.

So I book out of system. My home system is next door anyway. I need to go to bed, badly. I therefore, check the belts around my home. Then the rupture jumps in system and so does a thrasher. Hmm. I go and hang out at the POS for a bit and scan them. They are looking for me it seems. The Thrasher is about 2 months old. The Rupture the same guy from next door. They don't know I'm home. The thrasher leaves system but an Incursus comes in. I decide to move to a better dscan spot and go visit a pounce I have over one of the gates.

The Incursus lands on the gate. He sits there. I stare at him. Rupture is still in system. Then, he decides to start moving away from the gate.

To me, it smells of bait. I take a deep breath and it still smells of bait. So, I roll back to the POS. I then change my route and head to the station where I land 20k off of the Incursus. How interesting.

I dock.

I switch into a Hurricane. Both are still in system.

I undock.

Rupture and Incursus sitting off the station. The Rupture takes off when my cane shows up on grid. The Incursus sits there. I switch to barrage ammo. He sits there some more. I MWD towards him to close the distance and target him. He is still sitting there.

I wonder what station games he thinks I am playing... The normal station games?... I guess I am... they just might not be the ones he is expecting...

I'm amused now. I'll take global erryday.

PewPew. Incursus in half shields. His shields are repping. Interesting. Pewpew. Incursus in Armor. Pewpew. Incursus in half armor. I'm about 30k out now and nailing him with barrage from autocannons. This is so not an alpha setup.

Pewpew... he docks.

Damn.

I roll back to the POS to debate my options and wait out GCC.

They decide to leave.

Oh well. I tried :D I'm proud of myself for that.

Sec status is back up to -4.4. Go me!

I hope I'm doing this pirate thing okay...

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

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

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th
