Saturday Night Part Four: The Final Fight

Downtime was coming.  It had been a long and strange night as detailed in Saturday Night Part One, Part Two and Part Three.

My POS had not been attacked again.  Local had gone up a little bit.  I wondered if these guys were going to try to move in.  Down time was fifteen minutes away.  We were quite full on PvP and halarity from the night when a Maelstrom lands on the gate and aggresses one of the drakes.


"Its a trap."
"I don't care, kill him."  And they went after him.  I had been dumping loot at the station and landed thirty off.  My job was to grab point if it was lost but needed to try to avoid gate guns.  As I landed a Scorpion also landed and a Falcon decloaked.

This is one of those moments I love about a good fight.  You know where you want to be.

Vov and I went for the Falcon.  Vov started laying into it in his Tornado.  I went in to lock it down.  The Falcon did not like this. He stopped trying to jam Vov and started trying to Jam me.  He did succeed but it distracted him from Jamming Maq in his curse.  While he tried to kill me Vov killed him.

Falcon down.  An angel got its wings.

I warped to a pounce 200 off the gate to lose gate guns.  I then dived back down and as brawl with the Maelstrom swirled on.  The Maelstrom was boosting like a boss brawling with the boys.  One drake went down and it started on the other.  Maq turned his attention to the tempest and started to neut him out.  The Maelstrom lost point on Razor when Razor was in half structure.  Then the tempest went down and we started beating on the Scorpion as it deaggressed and went for the gate.

Good fight.  We started to loot the field. I grabbed some stuff and went to dump it.  As I did so Razor goes, "There is a probe salvaging the falcon wreck!"  The falcon is a T2 ship and the salvage has the potentual to be very valuable.  Someone pilfering my field?  We had worked hard all evening to litter the gate with wrecks so that it looked nice and healthily camped.  We had worked to make the map nice and red so that people looking for fights would come find us.

My wrecks!1

I landed 60k off the probe. He finished salvaging the Falcon and I went for him.  Full MWD attack Jaguar in route!

The entire time I expected him to warp off.  Right up until I had him pointed and started ripping his ship apart.  Probe down.  I warp back to another pounce and to my vast amusement, I have the shakes from engaging this probe by myself. It is two minutes to down time.  Razor scooped the rest of the wrecks.  I let my timer count down and dock as down time hits.

Good night.  Good fights.  A ridiculous amount of fun was had.  Everyone is full.  My sec status is down to -9.4 from -8.7.

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. …

Have you done your Eve Vegas Survey?

I did attend Eve Vegas to the shock of many. I'd already paid for it and allotted the time. It seemed that I should go.


I went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover as well. This is not the space to discuss those amazing places or my new Camera.

Eve Vegas was a bit harder for me to go to then I expected. I've detached from Eve for the most part these past months. It is very easy to be angry, frustrated, and bitter about the past that I lived on. The game, its development, and the players move on while I find myself emotionally stuck. That emotional stickiness does not need to be given to everyone else. Part of experiencing it was shielding people from it. But, as I accepted my items and stared down the poor gentleman that tried to put a wristband around my wrist, I realized that I wasn't in as good of a place as I had hoped to be.

That is where the Survey comes in. There are a few things that I could say and did say. A few of the questions made me want to say a bit more.

One was …

Your ideal roadmap

To try to be a bit more interesting then blogging yet another daily list of summit meetings, how about a question?

In the producer session, as we try to figure out how to fix and improve our communication with teams and how we figure out who should be gone to for features and changes, we discussed the road map.

We discussed what 'our' ideal roadmap would be. This breaks down into the individual roadmaps for each member of the CSM. After all, we are individiuals and we have different dreams for Eve. We have different goals and features that we want to move forward or go back to.

How close are we to what CCP is looking at and planning? We discussed their safety mesures to weigh the value of features. What will this feature do for Eve? It is not enough to have an ideal road map of things you want. Those things have to have value and that value needs to be enough to dedicate the time to the feature.

Do you have an ideal roadmap? A path for Eve to head in the next year or two once …
