Intercepted

I discovered interceptors. Or, more accurately, I discovered that I could fly interceptors. When I first started, interceptors was one of the first skill books that I purchased for myself. I got it with the aim to eventually fly them around when I wanted to run from point A to point B in a small fast ship. Chella just never reached the point where she could fly them. Every time I started her on Gallente Frigate V I got distracted by something else.

While doing something else I idly checked to see if Sugar could fly interceptors and to my surprise, she can. Thrilled, I stole the skill book that has been sitting in a container for almost a year now and plugged it in. Now I can try my hand at interceptor tackle sometime or another.

However, I'm mostly just obsessed with the ship. It is physically beautiful to my eyes. It looks like a dragon fly. I am often disappointed in the looks of ships in Eve. I grow used to them or don't mind them or am horrified by them but rarely do I look at them and go "Oh my how lovely".

I've noticed some Minimtar ships have quite the insectile design philosophy going on. My Scimitar reminds me of an insect and I named the Stilitto Dragon Fly because well... it is.

I ran around a bit today and saw something interesting. Nulli often times hangs out in the area. However, a massive spike like that was unexpected. Nulli Secunda was moving its capital ship and super capital ship fleet. They decided to take a detour through Molden Heath. Local spiked to over 60 people. Only three belonged to my corp.

When I undocked to see what was there I was greeted with a dscan containing, 9 Aeon, 13 Archon, 2 Avatar, 2 Chimera, 4 Erebus, 1 Leviathan, 1 Moros, 4 Nidhoggur, 12 Nyx, 4 Revelation, 1 Rorqual, 9 Thanatos and 2 Wyvern. There was also a Anshar rolling along. Probably full of fuel for all of those caps.

I guess they are moving per their new plans.

To bad I didn't warp to the cyno to snap a picture of all that capital ship. The ship names were pretty amusing. The things one sees puttering around can be quite interesting.

  1. And I thought the 100 ship birthday fleet that rolled through the system I was ice mining in yesterday was big. I guess Molden Heath really is where all the cool kids hang out :)

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

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

Maybe one day!

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
