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 :)

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways.

So am I.

Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills.

I don't like them.

That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it.

When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said that t…

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…

Nothing and Everything Changes

I can mark the passage of time from Eve with Intuition's age. He turned four last month. Today, Corbexx sent me a chat on Steam and we spent hours chattering about this and that as if it was yesterday. That is friendship.

One of the things we noticed is that our NDA is about to expire. That and the leavings of several people left us gossiping up a storm. The NDA was never a good NDA but we chose to respect the spirit of it even if the letter of it had the strength of  wet tissue paper.

Life is fine. The husband got a promotion at the start of the year. I am up for one at the end of the month that will be a fascinating life change. We also got our rental property goals started. For any that wonder how much of a basement dweller I actually am. My husband has the entire basement of the new house.

I think of Eve quite often. For one, I have it in my reddit feed. I mostly skim the titles and skip the topics. The general mood has not changed even if the people saying it has.

I saw that …
