Saturday Night Part Two: Whos POS?

Having just quelled a high sec uprising into low sec in "Saturday Night Part One" I received a conversation request.  I thought that it was one of the people we had just killed sending me the conversation.  I accepted and was surprise to see, "We have a Revelation shooting a POS and don't have the numbers on to kill it."


"Hold on."  I then started to type very badly in my excitement and dragged Diz into the conversation with me.  We agreed to help.  This is not a group we have personally worked with often.  Normally we are evenly matched in numbers and we shoot each other.

However, the call of "capital tackled" is like a mating cry in low security space.  All sorts of groups will band together to create enough DPS to kill that ship.  "Go dock!" I said.  Diz relayed that we needed damage.  Everyone reshipped.  In a flurry of confusion we transformed into a kitchen sink of death and ran for the system the Revelation was seiging on.

"Who is it and what is he shooting?" we asked as we assembled on the gate waiting for the warp in.  He linked a name and two separate corporations that were both on the grid.  I started to run them through Eve kill as he said,  "They are shooting a small Amarr tower."  This is when I stopped listenind and my mind blanked out. I started to log in another client.  "That's my tower," I muttered but I don't think anyone heard me.  I logged in my alt and sure enough a starbase notification flashed up.

Report: Starbase in is under attack

 "They are shooting my POS."  I said.
"It's yours Sugar?" I was asked half a dozen times in shocked tones.
"Yes.  It is mine.  Kill them."

We did not kill them.  There was some miscommunication where our FC thought they had already tackled one of the carriers or dreadnoughts   We jumped in to soon and spooked them, shattering the entire operation.  I dropped Sugar in to check on the status of the tower.  They had it down to 63% shields which is kind of sad for an undefended small POS being shot by a dreadnought.

Counter Terrorism Tactical Assault Group is a newly resurgent PvP corp looking to stake its claim in lowsec. We are looking for members of all ages, from freshly liscened pilots to scarred nullsec veterans.
We operate on a NRDS doctorine in high and lowsec, and NBSI in null.
We host frequent lowsec roams, a future lowsec home, and eventually nullsec territory. On the side we run missions, rat, run cosmic sites, and other activites to keep the old warchest full for the pew-pew. We also maintain friendly relations with industrials who can supply us with ships at more than fair market prices.
For more information about the corp, to talk setting standings, or to ask about applying, contact Kotehos.
"We will rise again."

So, the Counter Terrorism Tactical Assault Group is NRDS (Not red don't shoot).  I guess that does not go for POS.  My alt has a positive sec status, zero kills, two deaths and two members in her corporation.

The Revelation pilot sent a conversation to the other group that had found them saying, "Hahah you won't be cathing me tonight." and he left the system.  Fine by me. No kills but my POS was still up.  I did some stront adjustments to change its timer in case they decided to shoot it before or after downtime.  I also dropped in some hardeners.  If they had that much trouble shooting it I'd make it that much harder for them.

With a cloaky scout in system watching the POS we headed back out to reship and have yet more adventure that night.

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday so yay for unallocated skill points.

Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked.

In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end of A…
