My Billion Isk Bounty

About a week ago I got a convo from someone I haven't seen in a bit. He was moving on to bigger and better things and moving to null sec.

He noticed that my bounty was no longer a rounded number. I drained my last bounty a while ago and posted about it. I had reaccumilated another one through 'donations' from friends and I was back up to 15 million. I think the number was 15,151,515.15 or something very silly.

He goes, "I'll fix that," and laughs. I look at my bounty, count zeros and wonder if it really reads a billion. About 40 seconds later Mane goes, "Sugar your bounty is a billion isk? Log Chella on and pod yourself."

However, the person that set it goes, "Don't be naughty and go drain it." So I promised I'd keep it until I had to drain it. And I did. I've been living my life like normal. Sometimes I have to fend off people asking to pod and split it with me. I guess there is the chance that I have no alt, no corp, no friends, and am stupid. It doesn't hurt to ask. Someone else asked if people are hunting me down. I told them not anymore then normal.

Today, I was chatting with someone who noticed by bounty and informed me that I was #13 on the 'most wanted list'. Bountys are bullshit but I had to admit, I was amused that I was ranked so high.

I was amused. It was not until we were halfway through our roam and commenting about sec status (some went flashy red, I went down to -3.9 from -3.4) that one of my corpmates finally noticed my bounty status.

To a point, I'm shocked they didn't just pod me right there. However, I was ordered to drain my bounty immediately upon reaching home. I even got the direct command from Ender who did not approve of the chance of someone randomly popping my pod and getting it.

Sigh.

Bounty payment

For your termination of Sugar Kyle we have paid you the bounty that was set to his head: 1,000,000,000.00 ISK

They have not yet fixed the gender issue payout. However, they responded to my petition about it. I'm sure its in a long list of 'minor bullshit one day'.

Bounty free again.

Some will believe that I set it on myself. If you look at the top list, some people use it as advertisement space.

It is what it is... it was cute while it lasted... Ahh well...

Comments

  1. Who the hell placed it on your head?
    Was it someone you really pissed off? (and stupid enough to not know about self-podding)
    Or was it someone who like you and wanted to give anonymous gift?

    1. Someone that likes me, I know who it is, and it was a lulz gift. :) Plus, they've been trying to see if they can get my corp/alliance to pod me for the bounty.

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. …

Have you done your Eve Vegas Survey?

I did attend Eve Vegas to the shock of many. I'd already paid for it and allotted the time. It seemed that I should go.


I went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover as well. This is not the space to discuss those amazing places or my new Camera.

Eve Vegas was a bit harder for me to go to then I expected. I've detached from Eve for the most part these past months. It is very easy to be angry, frustrated, and bitter about the past that I lived on. The game, its development, and the players move on while I find myself emotionally stuck. That emotional stickiness does not need to be given to everyone else. Part of experiencing it was shielding people from it. But, as I accepted my items and stared down the poor gentleman that tried to put a wristband around my wrist, I realized that I wasn't in as good of a place as I had hoped to be.

That is where the Survey comes in. There are a few things that I could say and did say. A few of the questions made me want to say a bit more.

One was …

Your ideal roadmap

To try to be a bit more interesting then blogging yet another daily list of summit meetings, how about a question?

In the producer session, as we try to figure out how to fix and improve our communication with teams and how we figure out who should be gone to for features and changes, we discussed the road map.

We discussed what 'our' ideal roadmap would be. This breaks down into the individual roadmaps for each member of the CSM. After all, we are individiuals and we have different dreams for Eve. We have different goals and features that we want to move forward or go back to.

How close are we to what CCP is looking at and planning? We discussed their safety mesures to weigh the value of features. What will this feature do for Eve? It is not enough to have an ideal road map of things you want. Those things have to have value and that value needs to be enough to dedicate the time to the feature.

Do you have an ideal roadmap? A path for Eve to head in the next year or two once …
