Conquering Personal Demons

I went out to shoot some of my internal demons in the face with autocannons.

I was bored to a certain extent yesterday. The boredom was aggravated by loneliness. My new schedule has descyned me with everyone for the week days. Plus, when everyone is on, its still all ATX all the time. So, after being insulted by random people in Gevlon's chat room who take my lack of arguments as a lack of intelligence, I decided to go occupy myself.

The other day I accepted an invite to go run level 4s. I decided I'd run them in my Jag since the person was more looking for company and newer players. A few times, with spawns, I found myself tanking the room in my jag. I just popped on my tank and speed tanked the room. I never got past half shields.

This event made me go, hmm... maybe I can do this now. After all, I've been playing for seven months, I have a logistics 5 character and I can do some plexs alone. Also, I expected there to be more ships in the missions. I remember there being more ships when I was new. However, we did the Angel Extravaganza and I was not overly impressed with the number of ships.

I think the level 5 missions have skewed my perspective.

I invited someone that I chat with and nearby to come fleet with me. I warned them that I had zero idea of what I was doing and not to trust me as a fleet commander or a tank. He said he understood. With that out of the way, I bounced Sugar and Chella up to the .06 high sec mission systems of Molden Heath.

Chella has an Oneiros up there. While Sugar purchused and fit yet another Hurricane, I sent Chella off to find and bring back my Noctis. It's been sitting about 6 jumps away for 2 months now. If I start doing these with any regularity, it will be useful to have again. I may have to tribox and stick my scout into it (I just stopped to check about that and she can fly one with the Ore Industrial Skillbook. Win).

Once I got fit and setup, I went to the first of the 2 level 4 mission agents there. That agent offered both Sugar and Chella low sec missions one after another. I declined the ones I could, rolled my eyes and went to the other agent. Once I got my missions, like a pro I pulled up eve survival and tried to figure out if I could tank the mission.

My end decision was, "Probably" which sounded good to me. I undocked, got everyone coordinated, and dropped Sugar into the mission. With aggression pulled I dropped in logistics and called for the fleetmate to come join. Then the mission was over.

Okay... so we did another one that was longer. It had 3 gates and a multiple spawns. Beyond having to buzz around the board some, it was also not a problem.

So, with two simple missions I put a bullet between the eyes of my greatest demon. Level 4 missions.

  1. I'm sorry you ended up with bad experience on my channel. Please understand that in 99% lack of arguments means lack of knowledge, intelligence or effort.

    1. I didn't have a bad time, I was amused. If feeling superior makes them feel better, better for them. I've improved their day.

      I'll admit, the market discussions are not interesting to me but I'm reading them and trying to learn about them. Just as I have been back reading your blog to pick up that information and make better choices.

      My laid back, idle chat style does not fit well with some of the serious market types. Oh well :D

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
