That Didn't Help the Cause

Of course, because it is new, I am infatuated with following my new change of security status. I figured that I'd pop it back over -5 along the course of the week since this is my busy work week and slow gaming week.

I'm not one to turn down pewpew or think about too much because of the sec hits. During the course of the day, it was busy down in Molden Heath. The group that the boys had their battleship brawl with returned and were very unhappy that we would not undock. They returned with fourteen people and we had four active.

One of them said he hated people that would not undock and fight. It did not help that the boys were playing station games with them. When I peeked out I discovered that life of being shot by others without the station and gates giving a damn. They had sent a megathron to the station. From the DPS it was putting out the chances that it was super tanked were very high. Mix that in with the fact that they had already shown a habit of supertanking their ships and yeah... it was not a fight we were going to take.

This made them quite mad. Undocking a carrier to rep someone just made them super livid. "You have cap support! Fight us!" the guy raged in local. "No thank you," we told them politely. "You should be called capital noobs and not Capital Punishment!" Somehow his language failed to sway us from derping into their fleet and eventually they left after wasting about half an hour.

But it was a day for station games. We found ourselves back at the same station with the same people playing with archons from the previous day. The guy talked just as much smack in local this time as he did the last. With more DPS on board we poked at their archons but didn't have the mass to bump them off the station. Then, smack talker himself undocked. The boys instantly started to shoot him. I didn't because of my sec status. He was waiting for me to shoot as were the archons.

However, this time he over committed. He went GCC and docked. Then he undocked and did it again. The boys shot him and I joined in and we started powering through his tank. The archon started to rep him just as the fleet landed and we broke him into armor. As the fleet landed we powered through his reps and killed him. This is why I was so cautious the other day when they went after me and I was trying to dock. We then went for the archon who had taken GCC to rep him (he was flashy red, they are in the same corporation, familiar story that). He had deaggressed and docked before we did anything.

Then we left. I would probably not have played that game if I had any power to be in charge. I just dislike the station game thing. Still, I should try to be a bit more patient about it but bleh.

That was all fine because he was flashy red so no sec hit. We then wound up killing a sleipnir in 0.0. Again, no sec hit.

It was when we kind of figuring out what to do that the idea came up to do a quick ship escort down from high sec. A lot of people had ships trapped up there as well as some fragile stuff. We assembled the fleet and went to get everyone down.

However, there was a small gatecamp at the high sec to low sec gate. This gatecamp of death was composed of a drake, brutix, harby, exequror and another thing or two I don't remember. Since we had shiny things enroute we pounced on them corrected the situation. Safety first and all of that. Caldari Navy Ravens and Navy Apocs and Logistic Ships are fragile, delicate flowers. One would not want the paint scuffed by a gatecamp. I can only guess they planned to take GCC when they shot at people because my GCC tanked after this do to their high sec statuses.

We got our shiny things down and out, almost got to shoot a carrier, and then I had to break off for the night.

My punishment for the brutix, harby, exequror, and a random vexor that we also killed a moment later was a plunge down to -6.0. Maybe I'll be motivated to work at it for the next few days now.

So, my current security status gain and loss. The small climb in the middle of the ship kills is a plex I did with a corpmate and some random npc that I killed. This is directly after my previous list that shows the pod kill.

And I'm down to a -6.0 from a -5.4.

  1. There are times one has to embrace what he is.

    You should accept -10.0. You won't evade it anyway.

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 …
