My Valuation

So, 11 months in and Command Ship V (almost) under my belt I've decided to ask what is my value. What have I turned myself into and how useful is it?

Looking at myself I find that I do not know. I've been playing for eleven months. I do a lot of random things but I don’t do any major thing. I’m self sufficient but not in an amazing way. I can fly Minmatar up to battlecruisers decently. I am terrible at missions. I fly two types of logistics. I’m not brilliant about fitting ships. I have absolutely no idea how to fit a mission ship.

I’ll define myself as average. I manage not to die most days.

Command Ship V is about to finish. For some reason it has been a very long slog to drag this skill all the way to the top.

Skills tend to give smaller rewards for their cost as they increase. A skill may give a 3% bonus per level. However if the 5th level of that skill takes a month to train the question becomes: “What cost is that 3% bonus?”

Command Ships is a rewarding skill to take to V. If I look at the actual skill it says, “Skill for the operation of command ships”. That Is not very exciting. However, the skill is not where I need to look for the bonus. It is the ship itself.


Command Ships Skill Bonuses:
5% bonus to Medium Projectile Turret damage
10% bonus to Medium Projectile Turret Falloff

Percentages count. This particular ship is now my money maker. It is my pewpew boat allowing me to clear sites faster and with less ammunition. It is as close to a blinged out mission ship as I will be getting for a long time (forever?).

If I had gone the path of Medium Autocannon Specialization V it is a 2% increase in damage per level and will take over 20 days to train. So, for a similar amount of time I got a 5% bonus. Eventually I will chose to gain that missing 2% as well. But everything is about time and time management.

This is wonderful and I am personally pleased with it. Yet, it does not raise my personal usefulness. I don't fly a command ship as a command ship. I cannot use nice links and other such amazing things. Therefore I do not wish to classify my command ship abilities to be any higher than they are. I have Leadership V but I have not spent any appreciable amount of time in the skill tree.

According to the Eve Character Appraiser:

Character Specials:
95.15% Combat
4.85% Industry
Has very low sec status..
Price: 3,555,222,749.43 ISK

Very low sec status.. pashaw... its only -5.3 or something like that. I guess I can buy me again if I needed to. If I add in the 2 plex transfer fee that bounces me up to being worth about 4.5bil on the Charater Baazar.

Maybe I shouldn't have run these numbers. :P

  1. Actually this tool is kinda outdated to evaluate a character. A one year old character (19mi sp) is usually worth between 3bil(terrible char with very few skills to level V) up to 10bil (Tengu char) and if you can work a little on your sec status considering that you are, i suppose, specialized in minmatar and that you have a nice kb you can probably ask for 6.5-7bil

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

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

Summer in Iceland - Day Six

It is the final day and we have moved past Sion's shark consumption. We left Cafe Loki and just strolled back through town. I wandered in and out of stores looking for soft gloves or socks. There are lots of gloves, socks, scarves, hats, and etc all over the place but most of them are made of wool and are as harsh and scratchy as anything I have ever seen. I wanted something soft and silky and amazing and I didn't find that which is okay. The general game plan was to find this Ice Cream place across the street from CCP. It seems that they make their ice cream daily and it is the most amazing ice cream ever. So, we head to this ice cream place which is also near a grocery store and some museums. We go in and Corbexx orders some terrible concoction of salted peanuts and some candy that I hate. He said it was delicious. I was stuck staring at the flavors and not knowing what anything was because I'm illiterate in Iceland. I also have an ongoing problem with catching the
