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.

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…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…
