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

Attacked object: Amarr Control Tower Small

 "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.

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 …
