Dat Rorqual Killmail

Oddelulf seems like a quiet system. It sits on the other side of a high security gate. It has two stations and three low sec points. It is an anchor to Molden Heath's largest low sec pocket. There is one asteroid belt and an Icebelt. There is a level 4 agent in high sec that will send you on missions there but out side of that it appears to be nothing more than a sleepy Low Sec system that people travel through.

Occasionally it winds up on the front page of Eve kill, however. Such as the Rorqual that was killed last weekend by the King, Ueberlisk.


Oddelulf attracts delicious delicacies into his trap. He has but to stalk his system and wait. This particular situation was that they lit a cyno on a station with a small undock. The Rorqual landed outside of the docking range and Ueber undocked in his vindo. Point, Vindi webs, and a call for backup. The Thanatos and Archon that came in on the cyno docked. They undocked in a Drake and Prophecy. It didn't work out. The Rorqual died.

I know the above because I went to Ueber to ask him what happened.

For the most part the kill mail did nothing but ignite the envy that happens when something big and shiny is killed. It took me a few days to realize that it was on the front page of Eve Kill. A few more passed before I realize that a large chunk of Eve would wind up looking at it. The realization struck when the comments started to wander into the land of weird.

For anyone that does not know, eve-kill uses the disqus comment application to allow for kill mail comments. These comments can add invaluable information into the fight. They are more often used for insults and rage. One cannot forget the smart comments as well. I do find much amusement in the witty statements. I'd love to have that type of sharp wit but I content myself with the butter knife of my thoughts.

It is odd coming under the public eye. There are the normal CFC (Cluster Fuck Coalition) and RMT (Real Money Trading) comments. There are some pokes at Ueber. Such insults always fascinate me. It is easy for me to forget that not everyone has Ueber as a daily part of their lives. They don't hear of his hunting habits as he scans down and stalks the innocent mission runners that think they can dip their toes into low sec, complete a mission, and take off. After all, there is only one other person in the system.

But the commentators do not know any of this and that is obvious. From the one about killing defenseless ships to the insults that Uber learn to PvP. People who do not know the story just fill in some blanks and have at it in the comments section. Maybe it was a battle Rorqual that exhausted all of its drones attempting to kill the defenseless Ueberlisk!

  1. Congrats to him. I hope he was able to pick up most of that drop. It would buy a lot of Vindi replacements. :)

    1. Ueber sleeps on a giant hoard of loot from his kills to the tune of sixty billion or so. Such slumber doth that dragon do as he settles upon his hoard and waits.

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…

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. …

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 …
