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. …

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…
