Live Event: Angel Cartel conduct planetary attack in Oddelulf!

BREAKING NEWS: MOLDEN HEATH PIRATES REPRESENT AND KILL ALL THE THINGS!

It seems that CCP had a live event today. I logged in and in one channel some of the guys were chattering about an event going on in Oddelulf. I was not sure if serious. A live event, in low sec and in Molden Heath? Wat?!

This is the 'news' story of the event. I jumped into a Jaguar to go and see if this was a real thing or random lies. As I ran towards Oddelulf I got this link to a forum thread about it. And a website about Tech 4 News?

How cool. Masty and Crafty were killing all the things. I pushed my Jag and hopped into system while asking for a fleet invite.

I decided to land far out so that I had some room to take in what was going on. Local was crazy with 45 people in it. All sorts of stuff was on the field and I think people were killing NPCs. Whatever. Pewpew! I decided to try to chase down a rifter that I hoped was not paying attention.

However, he noticed and got into warp just as I hit my scram! Damn it! Next!

The field was flowing back and forth with people. I buzzed about and attempted to get a warpin on people for the RANSM boys to come in and do more beating. My goal was simple. Tackle all the things.

They were regrouping and trying to probe down a fleet that was somewhere in system with a safe. Having chased down several ships to have them run, someone in a noob ship landed right on top of me. With my mighty Jaguar I went "ROAR!" as I tackled and destroyed it.

For a moment it was very quiet. Space ship wrecks errywhere. I was trying to chase down something or another.

Then more people started to roll in.

I got called to the sun. While we went to regroup and see if we could get back on field. There were four of us (Domi, Domi, Maelstrom, Jaguar) and a whole fleet of them. We landed around 70k off of them. That was just too far. They tried to alpha my Jaguar but again it was too mighty! While the Maelstrom started to pewpew at them I warped off and tried to get a better reentry angel to maybe land on a Falcon.

But it was to no avail. They managed to take down the proud pirate warriors of RANSM and Crafty fell after tanking over 247k of damage in his Maelstrom because he is a badass. We were just not able to get the people and positioning to break their fleet and open up the situation. Very frustrating.

The forum thread we updated with our glorious destruction but the forum admins deleted it. It was not in their RP mode I guess. Very sad. I also make the assumption that they don't want people to not come to the low sec events because of the entire pirate contingency.

But that is sooo Eve! Live Event that turns out to be a Dust 514 promotion is attended by players and interrupted by pirates. We had pretty much no idea as to what was going on other then bodies in low sec, undock and kill everything.

This is the Kingdom of Yarr. Welcome.

Small Aside: I had a nice visit from a blog reader yesterday and a good chat. I appreciate the support, advice, and suggestions that I have received to improve my blog and make it a more pleasant experience for those that are kind enough to keep up with my ramblings.

Edit to add: Turns out that forum section is a role play section. Never looked at it before. Who knew. Oh well. All the things are still exploded.

  1. I know, huh? :Roleplaying: in an MMO about big spaceships, and huge spaceship battles? I thought that was just everyday life ... prob was A Long Time Ago, In a Galaxy Far, Far Away.

    But don't worry, It Has All Happened Before, and It Will All Happen Again. ;-)

  2. I'm curious to find out what blog platform you have been using? I'm experiencing some minor security
    problems with my latest website and I would like to find something more
    safeguarded. Do you have any solutions?

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 …
