Le PewPew: These Heels are Breaking in


It was Dave Lash's idea to shoot the station services and see if people would come out to fight.

It was another Rupture and tackle fleet. We managed to kill a Drake three jumps out. It was eerily similar to the Cyclone kill the night before. Point. Web. Blap. Out. This time I didn't stay for the pod and the gate guns did not shoot me.

They docked and undocked things. A Loki. A Rokh. A Malidiction. A Jaguar. Loki and Rokh played games. Our fleet swirled around, Scythe, two interceptors (one was me!) and nine Ruptures. It went well until local spiked to 70 people. We popped the Sabre as local spiked. Jump bridges.

24 Naga, 5 Scimitar, 2 Jaguar, a Lachesis, some Tengu, Tornados, Cynabals, Lachesis, Falcons and some more stuff came in. It seems that shooting their station did indeed create a response. We stayed and fought as the tackle landed but when the massive Naga ball landed we just bailed. We knocked out some tackle and a stabber fleet issue. I got tackled  I tackled, they blapped that tackle. Someone knocked me down to 25% shields before I hit warp.

We lost two Ruptures and got chased a bit. On the other side of the gate we stood and fought their tackle that had landed.  A crow died and a Jaguar. Their Scimitars jumped through and we bailed off of that gate. DP managed to somehow burn out his MWD, kill the Jaguar through the Scimitar reps and warp off in armor.

Now we are down to a handful of Ruptures, me and the Scythe.  There were some Tengu in some random system and it seemed like it was time to try to kill the Tengu. I wound up tackling one and he tackled me back which turns out that it is very bad. However, I was powerful! I was also out of the Scythe rep range. The FC ordered me to drop the tackle and bail. Somehow, and I don't know how, I worked my way free, avoided being blapped (I think this is because missiles are terrible) and made it into warp as I hit structure.


This interceptor thing is very, very dramatic. 99% structure. And then back into battle to rescue one of our Ruptures! With no armor. But then we managed to kill a Huginn instead. I really have no idea what was going on.

We hobbled back home, somehow the Ruptures managed to kill an Arazu on the way home and the battleship fleet it was with bailed from four or five Ruptures on a gate, taking gateguns.

Interesting night.

  1. Thanks for coming by, please do so again!

    I tackled your Stiletto yesterday at the station, but you took out my Condor. Should have gone for the Ruptures, but that was my mistake.

    1. I remember getting tackled. I was like, "eek tackled!" and then "yay, untackled!" and ran away.

      Fun stuff :)

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…

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…
