Grand Theft Wormhole: The Aftermath

I think I expected things not to be normal for a few days. Robbing the corp was terribly exciting. Rarely do I wind up in that many random situations in the space of one day.

Diz wanted to hear what happened that night. I actually got on coms voluntarily to tell him.  He lamented that he missed it.  “I never get invited to these!” he said.  We had a good chat on coms as I moved Tengu and started trying to tally my haul.

Vov and I were on a buzzed, endorphin high from the entire thing. He wound up writing an eve-mail to the corporation to offer them their stuff back for ISK. I have no idea why he wrote it. I wasn't giving anything back and he had already broken most of the things down. Maybe he was going to see how far he could drag things along.

The following day, when he logged in the MOTD for the corporation channel had been changed"
"We have been robbed by a new recruit, See your mail and check standings. I wil be rebuilding the office and and I will be getting with you individually to asses the losses and begin helping to regain personal assets. The corp is now closed to recruiting obviously and we will be pushing a war dec against these ex-fatal ascension assholes. I'm getting with our sister corps and talking with the alliance as soon as my work hours permit."
War decing Team Liquid would be amusing. For one, they are not very active right now. Those that are active are mostly not in Team Liquid at the moment. It would be interesting for the wormhole corp to come and lay siege on them. It might get some of them to resub to amuse themselves. Supposedly there is a co-corp that will be contacted. We wait to see how events unfold. People do like their war decs.

The C3 corp contacted us and Vov sent them over to me. We chatted for a bit and they seem to be a very cool group of people. Hopefully, I have some new friends.  Their haul was around 4.5-5 billion with just under 500 billion in POS modules destroyed. They were debating doing more when the corp came online but someone deleted the bookmarks.

When the CEO of Vov’s new corp logged in, he wouldn't talk to Vov. He even ignored and blocked him after telling him to stop talking to people in chat. Vov, for someone as intolerant as he can be, can be amazingly chatty and likeable when he wants to be. The corp seemed to like him just fine and understand that this is Eve and their CEO didn’t do the proper checks. Vov belives that they have Stockholm syndrome. The two most blinged Tengu (one went to me and one to our new friends) belonged to one soul who only has 200m left in his wallet. However, the CEO has promised to replace everything himself out of pocket. Nice of him.

Most of my ISK intake was the Tengu. One has been sold to someone in THC2. One was stripped down and sent to Jita. One lives in my high sec hanger and I tickle its chin. He lives next to the Viator that I also stole. I always wanted a second. I decided to let Red Frog do the moving for me.  I broke things down into contracts and shipped them off to Jita. I decided that someone else could take the risk of moving a bit over two billion in loot.  Once they made it to Jita, I checked prices and firesold most of it. The difference between buy and sell prices were 1-2 million isk. For the high value items it was not worth my time to deal with the market wars in Jita for a million ISK.  I took a billion for my personal wallet and everything else has gone to TCS.

The T1 hulls all have sold at TCS.  Molden Heath is hungry for Drake hulls it seems. The random items will be sorted for their resale value at TCS, reusage value by me, or liquidated. I have a lot of missiles now as well. Vov is selling me a lot of his haul for TCS. He is very supportive of Retail by Piracy.


I've been chatting with one of the C3 members in THC2 public chat. Cool dude. I love meeting new people.

That is the side of the evil thieves. Life is normal. Taking things is part of what we do. It is fascinating in its own way. The entire concept of 'stealing' is supposed to be bad. Yet, inside of my social circles it is a fine and normal thing. I'm sure there are some people who will keep their distance, unhappy with my choices. 

That is there call. There is a path that we all walk. I cannot walk everyone's path and make every person happy with me. Those people will accept me for what I am (Pirate Queen) or they will not. For some, this will devalue me as a person. For others, it is just another adventure in a video game.

And for the voyeurs, I hope you've enjoyed it.

  1. It was 500 million* worth of pos mods destroyed. Total haul of ~14-15b (5b for myself, 4b for sugar and around 5b to the c3 corp).

    To put that in perspective, thats roughly 30 plex total. So the ceo is somewhat deep in the hole right now if he intended to replace everything that was taken/destroyed.

    1. Yeah, that's somewhere around $500 worth of PLEX. I really need to find a CEO like that then "lose" a lot of stuff...

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. …

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…
