Yes. It Was Worth It

Linkin Park - What I've Done

My first dip into outlaw status was unexpected.

But as I often do... let me back track to earlier...

Earlier, the boys got in a massive (by our scales) battleship fight. I didn't go along. They owned all over it. They managed to drag their intital eight battleships just jumping into the fight into a hot drop with triage carriers backing them up. They lost two out of fourteen. The other fleet lost 20 out of thirty one.

They were all sorts of worked up after that. When everyone got settled back down we went looking for trouble. Space has been rather busy of late. It is a good thing. End of summer reactivation means more people. With all the chances to the game and shifting of null sec there is a lot of moving happening.

Anyway, the boys found two members of a corp that can perhaps be called enemies. I doubt we will ever see more then eye to autocannon with this group. It was enough. Their proteus engaged our bait damnation.

That led to the swift destruction of the proteus and his sleipnir friend that came to assist him. With that completed, there was a general run back to see if another fight could happen by the other bait ship. However, he was not able to get anything decently engaged.

During the hot drop, a third party member said, "You hot dropped for that?" to which he was told, "We'd hot drop for just you to!"

With nothing on the horizon there was a general decision to go and bash a POS they had been looking at. I downshiped to something faster and more tackle capable then my hurricane. The goal is to take out whomever comes to try to hot drop us before the drop happens. So we had a nice subcap fleet to support our capital ship fleet.

This is the second time of late someone was manning the tower. Someone decided to try to reload the guns in a cheetah. The cheetah was popped and we managed to tackle the pod as well. Suspicion is that the pilot was quad boxing accounts. That slows the reflexes a bit.

I popped his pod. I didn't think twice about it. The FC goes, "Sugar, grab that pod" and I said, "Already on it". It was a nice pod kill as well at 288mil. He had some nice implants in. I didn't think much about it until I checked my sec status when I noticed that I had GCC. Mentally, I expected it to be around -4.8 or -4.9. I forgot what a pod does to you.

For anyone that would like to see what pod killing does to your sec status in low sec, here you go. I have a stack of sec gains from running exploration sites. It is a nice showing to see how small gains are and how huge hits are. Also, my sec hit was instantaneous but my sec gains have to wait on the 15 minute 'tick'. I will also note that not every ship I shoot is reflected under my security status log because shooting outlaws does not create sec hits or gains.

Hello flashy red outlaw status.

And the only lesson that I learned is that pods are often full of surprise goodness.

  1. It's sad to see that blobbing has become the norm even in lowsec. It used to be that you could get small gang fights, but now when you engage with 2 man it almost always means you get outnumbered 8 to 1. Even so called 1v1s are more often than not 1v2 or 3 (booster, falcon).

    Sad.

    1. It goes full circle for all sides. Sometimes we are out numbered. Sometimes we do the out numbering. Sometimes it is equal(ish).

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. …

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.




It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
