Pirates, Pirates errywere!

Burrring! Burrrrrrinnngggg!

I answered the TEXN/THC2 Molden Heath Batphone. "Hullo?"

"Moros tackled."

"Where? What do you need? Okay, on it."

I hung up, switched into my cane, undocked, and started typing half completed sentences into our alliance chat.

Moros Tackled. RANSM comms. DPS. Need peeps.

"Where?" I posted the link and logged onto coms. Requests for fleet invites started to fly as battlecruisers sped through the systems.

"He's in half armor."

"I think we just broke his tank."

"Yeah, he says his tank is broken."

Collective, "Shits" were heard. "How long?" I was only 3 jumps away at that point. Go hurricane, go!

Is this killmail whoring? Yes. Am I ashamed? No. :D In fact, I am delighted to be old enough and considered able enough to answer the batphone. However, in the defense of killmail whoring (which needs no defense :P), whenever a capital is tackled like that you are expecting backup to come at any moment. Until the ship was down and everyone was safe, people were going to be needed.

I landed one jump out as he went into structure. "I'm not going to make it," I moaned. I then landed in system when he was in half structure and bounced in.
"You're here, Sug."
"You said he was in structure." This is where my lack of expierence comes into play. In normal fights structure = pop. This is a drednought. It takes a few more minutes for a battlecruiser/cruiser/frig pack to make him go pop in structure.

I landed on the field.

Pirates! Pirates! ERRYWHERE PIRATES! It was a pirate kitchen sink corp fleet.

This is the pretty clear picture.

And this is what was actually happening. For anyone that does not play eve, the non purple squares are drones. Drones are very tiny and you have to be super close to see them in your regular playing field.

Pew! Pew!

Transcendence

Why didn't he self destruct? They were chewing at him for over 10 minutes. The reason is because he is a decent creature. In local they chatted as he sat through seige and they tried to kill him. He'd had his ship for two years and he was happy to go down fighting. He was found shooting a POS. The call went out and rippled across MH with good response as they tackled him and waited for backup.

And he died. And we gave the gf (good fight) in local.

I flew my flashy red GCCd self back home. Not the brightest idea but I was buzzed a bit.

Somehow my sec status is now -4.0...

  1. One small step for Sugar [to flashy], one giant leap for your corp/alliance KB. ;-) lol

  2. The "exploded" player was actually a very decent target, that is a pleasant surprise. He was not angry for losing is ship. A gentleman. But was he alone shooting the POS, thats a mistake if you ask me to be alone on that shiny ship. Did anyone came to is rescue ?

    Congrats on the Capital kill, and congrats on being able to use the bat-phone.

    1. No one came to the rescue. We bailed quickly.

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

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
