...I'll Need a New Ship...

The nice part about shooting people near faction warfare systems is that there is a greater chance that a basic fit is going to be available somewhere at a station for a price.  I spent way to much refitting my Rupture after I died to a somewhat mistimed attempt to poke at a Huginn for the fleet.

Oh well.  Shit happens.  I discovered I didn't give any fucks about the loss other then the desire to do a quick refit into something and get back out in space.  I was a bit startled by my matter of fact lack of care.  While ships explode and I fully expect it to happen, I find I am often disappointed that I didn't make what was wanted to happen happen.   This time I was reminded of when I lost a Rifter to tackling a Drake for Ender, giving him the time he needed to break free and kill the drake.

On this occasion the FC asked me to aggress and see what happened.  The Huginn pilot waited until I was in half armor to aggress back.  The fleet came to save me but I died just as they landed on grid and before the reps could land.  Oh well.  It was a good try and for once I wasn't fretting when I was sent first to go and try to hold something down.  In retrospect, I was rather calm and thoughtful about the entire engagement.

It reminds me about the fact that armor repairs are end of cycle and shield start of cycle. My Rupture couldn't hold up at the end.  That was okay as well.  Ships die and this one didn't die from something stupid that I or anyone else did so I walked away from it with the desire to reship and continue.

The boys have been out of late in a somewhat disorganized  organized group where people log in and wander off to join whomever is floating about trying to kill people in space.  I am terrible at inviting myself into situations.  Public announcements for fleets make me happy.  Sticking my head into a fleet to see if they mind me coming along leaves me somewhat nervous of rejection.  Not they my boys have ever, ever rejected me. It's a me thing and I've been spending more time twiddling my thumbs then joining fleets of late.  It's something I need to correct and be a bit more "Sugar is on the way rawr!".  Also, it's a great chance to fly my Jaguars and try some new things.  Moral: Self Invite until they kick me from fleet if they don't want me :P

Anyway, at the start they were running around in shield stuff but cruisers and battlecruisers.  I undocked my Jaguar because my Jaguar is, I believe, my favorite ship and went to see if I could poke my fingers in their pie.  I joined just as they were deciding to reship into armor and roam.  I turned around but Diz and I got held up when Ren was met with a Vexor and Caracal playing gategames with him.  After a moment of confusion we figured out where he was and went in for the kill.

The Vexor pilot went down and I tackled the Caracal.  In my mind I thought missiles due to it being a Caldari boat and kept myself at the edge of my point range in a rapid orbit to negate missile damage and hopefully he had heavy assault missiles that wouldn't be able to reach me.

The Vexor went down and the Caracal popped.  I went for the pod and to my surprise, point even with a fail misselection of my disruptor.  Well, okay.  I killed the pod but it seems that it didn't effect my sec status this time.

In local his friend goes, "You could have spared my mates pod :( " and I could only answer, "No. Not really after I caught it."

After that we roamed out.  Space was pretty dead until the Huginn.  I did kill a cyno noobship at some point.  Then I died to the Huginn and purchased and fit up another ship and we headed back home.  A quite night but a good night with a lot of things to think about on many levels.

I'm rather excited that I will be able to fly the Thorax and Vexor soon.  T2 medium Hybrids are near.  I'm still not loving the armor Rupture, I don't use missiles (they are on my do not like list) so a few new options will be fun.

  1. The thorax is a hella fun ship, tho alittle pricy compaired to most the other cruisers, think they are goign for like 14mil, not that, thats super expensive or anything lol.

Maybe one day!

 [15:32:10] Trig Vaulter > Sugar Kyle Nice bio - so carebear sweet - oh you have a 50m ISK bounty - so someday more grizzly  [15:32:38 ] Sugar Kyle > /emote raises an eyebrow to Trig  [15:32:40 ] Sugar Kyle > okay :)  [15:32:52 ] Sugar Kyle > maybe one day I will try PvP out When I logged in one of the first things I did was answer a question in Eve Uni Public Help. 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

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f

What are all of these buttons for?

My snooty villager, Naomi, wants to move out. I picked her because she is a blue cow with some wild makeup but we have not really bonded like I have with Savannah and Mitzi... oh wait yeah wrong game. So, my clan is almost finished the second step of the Manhunt in Division 2. We just have one more zone to clear and then we can hunt down the secondary target to reveal the next... err wait, waaaaaiittt... Sorry about that. Resetting things. What do I want to do? That has been my problem for a while now. If I play Eve, what do I want to do in Eve? While I did PvP it was never my draw. The old PvE sucks. The new PvE may be okay but do I want to do it? Who am I? What am I? And do I need to be unique and interesting? I think that I may want to look in small wormholes and try a exciting, fragile life. With some of the ships that are available I can, perhaps, have an interesting life where I may or may not fall prey to someone but it does not have to define what
