Weekly Ship Lose Quota: Met

I really don't get PvE. Its rather sad and a bit embarrassing that I am so absoutly terrible at it. To compensate for my vast inability, I normally avoid it and spend my time finding other ways to make ISK.

Today, I decided to be bold and try to do some of the anomaly hanging around the system. I scanned one down that had no escalations. I pulled up the guide on it and it seemed like it was something I should be able to do with a battle cruiser and a logi.

Frigs, cruisers, battle cruisers a few battleships. They were in 5 spawns. The spawns were triggered by killing the highest bounty/biggest ship. I figured with spawn management I'd be fine.

It didn't work out that way for me.

I landed in the anom, got aggro from the NPCs and landed my logi. I rolled my logi off of me to keep her out of the way of future spawns. With reps running I puttered about popping frigs -> cruisers -> battle cruisers and as I popped the 2nd to last battle cruiser with plans to clean up the battleships from low to high, the 2nd spawn hit.

I was mildly worried. I cleaned up the battle cruisers and turned to the frigs that had just reached range. Happily, I popped a few. The DPS was rather high but my reps were steady and rolling in. Then I got webbed. I webbed and popped the webbing rat and then got scrammed.

Oh.

Then I got webbed again.

That is when I said calmly to my corp, "I am going to die."

I webbed and popped the stuff holding me down. I broke free, hit warp, and blew up just before it disengaged.

Sigh.

In corp chat, "Damn. I went to make a sandwich. Do you need me to tank it?"

"No. I'll just try to get my wreck."

Not my smartest decision.

So, down two ships, I swallow my pride enough to ask him to clear the anom for me. My pride does get in my way. Normally, I just die quietly in the depths of space and slink away, embarrassed at my inability to do PvE activities. Sometimes, some people (Ender) are sweet enough to laugh at my loses from looking at the corp kill log. Pleasant really, when that happens.

It seems the anom did not agree with the walk through about how it was going to spawn.

Ahh well.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.




It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
