What a bitter taste...

I lost a plex this morning. How bitter it tastes. How frustrated I feel with my lack of skills to kill people and defend what I find.

I've said before that the early entrance into low sec leaves me very frustrated at times. While, I assume that it has been very good for my PvP learning curve, there are still some negatives.

Negatives - like when I lose a plex.

I found a 5/10 this morning. After wandering around, begging for assistance from my alliance mates logged in and receiving no interest, I decided to go at it alone. I have an armor cane and my logistics ship. I should at least be able to get myself off grid if I was unable to deal with the DPS. I figured that I would kite them and chew through them until I could make it to the second room. Hopefully there I would just take out the faction rat and grab the loot and run.

A few minutes in, just as I was about to start moving forward, combat probes land around me. With a sigh, I knew that I was going to lose the plex. I was by myself, duel boxing. Not the best situation for me to be in. The first probe wobbled around and stabilized. Then three others landed with it. There was no way that I was going to finish before something landed on me but I kept chewing away until the probes were pulled back. Then I bailed.

It took them a minute to realize that I had bailed. Then they used core probes and scanned down the site.

Next, a waiting game. Either they wanted me or they wanted the plex or both. I spent a little bit of time reading the killboards to find out who they were as I watched the gate to the plex, cloaked.

Eventually, when I did not come back out they dropped a buzzard onto the gate to check out how far I had gotten. A minute later a tengu lands. Wrecks start to light up my dscan.

Sigh.

I took my little plex running crew back home and went out to scan some more.

It's been a while since I was run out of my sites like this. At least I got to watch the Tengu take 40 minutes to grind the site down.

Could I take him? I don't know. Some would say yes. Some would say no. My solo confidence level says no.

At least those armor hardeners are still selling away.

Maybe one day!

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
