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...

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…

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…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…
