The Pirate Reaction

I've been amused at some of the discussion and interest in Tags 4 Sec in the low sec, pirate community. This is a big deal for us. I know that people are crying over the scanning changes and the skill point changes and generally flooding the forums in sweet, salty oceans. But there are two things more important in the long run for me and the health of Low Sec Space in general.

1 - Tags 4 Sec. I can talk and talk and talk but right now I'm rather tired of hearing myself. Instead, I skimmed my chat logs since the patch and will now share the secret, inner world of what some pirates think of the Tags 4 Sec change. In one motion I rip away the veil across the land of PvP.
"He's wanting tags like crazy to avoid cops"
"Ended up dying because I was webbed by the (tag) rat and couldn't get out until dram was dead"
"I think I looted that fight, and the half structure transporter"
"I almost died to negotiator"
"I had to heat my guns vs (tag) rat, wtf"
"Clone Soldier Negotiator Tag only took clearing like 30 belts"
"m8 he just wants to come to low sec for sec tags like the rest of us"
"Wait until everyone who is stockpiling them floods the market. We'll be burning stacks of tags to stay warm"
"Sard, you should stream yourself ratting for tags"
"Yarrbear scum"
"I have a fellow scholar ratting for tags in a cane"
"Swear to god these new tag rats are the only good thing to come out of this expansion"
"I'm likely throwing away a few bil by not selling them asap but I don't actually value that few bil compared to being able to get more sec back"
"I doubt I'll be raising my sec at all. Aside from how much it'll raise from ratting if this turns out to actually be profitable."
"All these tag rats keep raising my sec"
"I can vouch for arty for ratting. Super ammo efficient, great projection"
"I'm looking for fights... with tag rats"
The second important thing:


I give zero fucks about what other people would do with their ISK. It is my ISK and my internet spacepixel precious.

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

Have you done your Eve Vegas Survey?

I did attend Eve Vegas to the shock of many. I'd already paid for it and allotted the time. It seemed that I should go.


I went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover as well. This is not the space to discuss those amazing places or my new Camera.

Eve Vegas was a bit harder for me to go to then I expected. I've detached from Eve for the most part these past months. It is very easy to be angry, frustrated, and bitter about the past that I lived on. The game, its development, and the players move on while I find myself emotionally stuck. That emotional stickiness does not need to be given to everyone else. Part of experiencing it was shielding people from it. But, as I accepted my items and stared down the poor gentleman that tried to put a wristband around my wrist, I realized that I wasn't in as good of a place as I had hoped to be.

That is where the Survey comes in. There are a few things that I could say and did say. A few of the questions made me want to say a bit more.

One was …

Your ideal roadmap

To try to be a bit more interesting then blogging yet another daily list of summit meetings, how about a question?

In the producer session, as we try to figure out how to fix and improve our communication with teams and how we figure out who should be gone to for features and changes, we discussed the road map.

We discussed what 'our' ideal roadmap would be. This breaks down into the individual roadmaps for each member of the CSM. After all, we are individiuals and we have different dreams for Eve. We have different goals and features that we want to move forward or go back to.

How close are we to what CCP is looking at and planning? We discussed their safety mesures to weigh the value of features. What will this feature do for Eve? It is not enough to have an ideal road map of things you want. Those things have to have value and that value needs to be enough to dedicate the time to the feature.

Do you have an ideal roadmap? A path for Eve to head in the next year or two once …
