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 :)

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

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 th

Maybe one day!

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio
