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?

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…

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…

My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.
In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 
I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.
Since I logged …
