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 :)

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…

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…

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…
