Unscouted Freighter Best Freighter

I was rather distracted when there was some comments about Diz facing off with a grup of cyclones a few systems over and seeing if we had any backup nearby. I undocked without thinking about it and headed in that direction. I admit, I was multi-tasking working on my work stuff and moving my body towards the need.

Once I dropped out of warp I pushed my laptop aside and started to pay attention. It is amazing how much more interesting Eve is then my job. We staged on the gate and had a Cyclone jump into us. Dher shot it and I jumped with it but he warped off before I uncloaked. I therefor warped to the gate where Diz was and had a face off with another Cyclone. Diz suggests we go to a belt, so we go and sit at the top belt to see if the fight wants to come to us. Then, Dher says that he has a cyclone pointed and needs backup.

No idea what was going on. We turned around and head back to him. I jumped through and now there are two cyclones and a drake. The one cyclone was the one we had shot at earlier and the second was the one that had faced off with us.

Mildly confused, I targeted everyone to figure out who we were shooting. Once I had that down I started to shoot the cyclone with the red in his shield bar. He was ASB fit because his shields kept jumping back. I sent my drones to the other cyclone and pointed the drake.

The first cyclone went down. Confused if we were shooting the drake or the cyclone, I saw the second cyclone's shields going down so started to shoot him. Someone was damaging the drake as well. To top it off, other members had caught up.

The cyclone exploded and the drake was just through shields as I started to shoot him.

All three ships went down. Dher said that they shot him the entire fight and he burned everything out but one Invul. Scooped the loot and to my job the gateguns were shooting everyone elses drones and not mine. I called them back to me and hit my safe to wait out GCC.

Dher also goes, "Come would be great." Very true. None of us were on coms for some reason. It is interesting how well we synced up anyway. Diz did scold us for going after the cyclone when he and ren were working down the drake. But that was more because he didn't get a second tasty cyclone.

I got a neat little convo in game from someone who has been reading my blog and wanted to say hi. That type of thing is a little fun. It also helped occupy me through finishing my work, having the program crash and wipe it, and refinishing it again so that I could go on a roam with my boys.

Canes, canes, errywere!

It was late and I was sleepy but of course I went out. A bit more ammo in the cane and we undocked. We poked our head in to see who the latest group was in Skarkon when Diz goes, "Fenrir on the gate!"

We jumped and headed for the gate. It was a 60au warp. "He has a rifter to web him," Diz said. (Webbing is used to snap slow fat assed ships into warp instantly)

Ender somehow manages to magically teleport himself ahead of all of us and call point as soon as it decloaked. We all landed and frantically shot and bumped it until...

Transcendence.

The rifter left when we all landed. Local was spiking up. We looted the wreck of all of the small things. I wound up with two Mining Forman Crystal links or something. Yay stuff. Unscouted freighters for the win. Plus it was full of goodies.

Local spiked so we ran away to the next system and docked to wait out our GCC. Local spiked for a bit as two gangs passed through but filtered back down.

The rest of the roam was unproductive. We stared down a few people, tried to grab others, had a faction warfare blob gatecamp bail when we landed, then a talos take gcc while kiting a group of canes and drakes...

A weird night. I was too tired appreciate some of it. We got to Amamake and no one was there. The question was where to look and I spoke up and said I was tired and needed to be taken home.

But things happen. Hurricanes are found afk on gates to faction warefare plexs and don't aggress back until they hit armor.

This is everyone landing as Ender kills the target.

This is Ender and Ren shooting Razor who bitched about not getting on the kill.

So tired... I kept nodding off in warp... docked up a few jumps away from home. Up 23 hours, time to crash.

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

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 of A…

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…
