Nicks and Cuts: Logistics for Outlaw Corpmates

Fiona Apple - Criminal

If anything will drive me back from the land of flashy red outlaw is the GCC that logistics ships gain for repping their outlaw corpmates. Every time Sugar takes on something and Chella assists, Chella takes GCC and gets a sec hit. I see this being a regular whine for me in the future.

Somehow the stars aligned slightly off kilter and my need for Chella as my logistics pilot has increased. I blame MacG. He asks me to come tank stuff for him so I go and tank stuff for him. I don't often think first before I do said tanking and we wind up in some interesting experiences. Mostly because I am terrible at PvE. I dive into it with a senseless enthusiasm and then wind up shrieking and wondering what I got myself into.

I recently said, "By our Powers combined" reference MacG and I taking on content above us. Ender goes, "Did you just drop a Captain Planet reference in chat?" and I could only answer, "Yes," with zero shame.

Anyway, MacG finds an Angel Mineral Acquisition Outpost. I confused it with the 4/10 Angel Cartel Occupied Mining Colony. If I had realized which one it was before I warped to it I would have suggested that we wait for help sooner.

Instead, off we went. The power of two battle cruisers and a logistic ship. Somewhere after the third spawn in the first room I began to get a clue that it was not what I thought it was. I did a search and realized that I was in a bit over my possible head. The first stage was finished pretty easily. It took us a little bit but we got it done. It was the second stage, where we trotted off a few systems over into a stationless pipe that I had a few instances of panic.

I went back and forth about doing the site in the system. Finally, I took a deep breath and decided to just go for it. We would stay aligned, pay attention to scans and wait for combat probes to drop on us. However, I panicked and I panicked badly when two separate fleets came through the system. Plus, the system is stationless and full of POSs which are full of ships which clutter dscan.

Eventually, LR came back from afk and ran over to help us at the end. The systems were clear with players but the biss NPC was terrible. He has over 2mil ehp, and the spawn triggered Chella. Suddenly, my logistic pilot is trying to outrace a NPC with a frigates speed. I have to warp her off grid and they of course target the next squishiest thing on grid... MacG.

He almost gets away...

We almost get the main guy killed first...

I saw his explosion. Well shit. This is when carebears go terribly wrong.

Of course, the site does not drop anything for us. Ahh well.

The sec hit is easy enough to counter. I have Chella assist combat drones. This gets her on a few kills and she picks up the sec gains to counter the hits.

What it does not fix is my logistic pilot taking GCC. This catches the attention of people going through system. It gets her shot by gate guns and station guns. And, its irritating.

What it does not fix is the fact that they are in the same system and I am pewpewing the evil hoards of NPC pirates that threaten to overwhelm empire space with their awful red crossness.

So terrible... red crosses... such horror must cleanse space...

Chella is repping the brave soul fighting back the terribad invasion when... whoops, hahahahh GLOBAL CRIMINAL COUNTDOWN CONCOCORD SAYS YOU ARE BAD!

Just... sigh.

Maybe one day!

 [15:32:10] Trig Vaulter > Sugar Kyle Nice bio - so carebear sweet - oh you have a 50m ISK bounty - so someday more grizzly  [15:32:38 ] Sugar Kyle > /emote raises an eyebrow to Trig  [15:32:40 ] Sugar Kyle > okay :)  [15:32:52 ] Sugar Kyle > maybe one day I will try PvP out When I logged in one of the first things I did was answer a question in Eve Uni Public Help. It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

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

Summer in Iceland - Day Six

It is the final day and we have moved past Sion's shark consumption. We left Cafe Loki and just strolled back through town. I wandered in and out of stores looking for soft gloves or socks. There are lots of gloves, socks, scarves, hats, and etc all over the place but most of them are made of wool and are as harsh and scratchy as anything I have ever seen. I wanted something soft and silky and amazing and I didn't find that which is okay. The general game plan was to find this Ice Cream place across the street from CCP. It seems that they make their ice cream daily and it is the most amazing ice cream ever. So, we head to this ice cream place which is also near a grocery store and some museums. We go in and Corbexx orders some terrible concoction of salted peanuts and some candy that I hate. He said it was delicious. I was stuck staring at the flavors and not knowing what anything was because I'm illiterate in Iceland. I also have an ongoing problem with catching the
