"el oh el oh el" as DP Would Say

Oh how amusing and fantastic the deployment has been. Is the weekend almost over already? The local groups are fantastic. Local has been classy. Fights have been had. Our participation has been fantastic.  People get their shit together and moved with us. We've fleeted. We've roamed. We've maintained a lot of organization much to our own surprise.

Our morning fleet started when we ran to the null sec hole to poke at  XDeath yet again. On the way we killed a Tornado and a Cynabal. Then we jumped into null and managed to catch a Vaga on the sun. We skirmished on their station and killed a carriers fighters before we left as more carriers and all the sniping things undocked. They undocked all of the things on us (again with the carriers to the gate). We decided to recoup and regroup. At that time WEAZL was engaged back in Tasti with some Tengu.  The call went out! Assault frigates sprinted back home. Rawr!

 We wound up killing two Tengu that belonged to the hot dropping corporation from yesterday. A very nice tackle by Floor nailed down the second Tengu as we buzzed around at full speed after killing the first and trying to tackle the rest of the fleet. We had to leave a stabber behind to kill the Tengu.

After that, we reshipped again. The assault frigate was a late call in our packing. And some people use MWD and some people use Afterburners. We've been cannibalizing fits and refitting people on the fly. I brought a stack of Jaguars and I am now down to just one after giving them out and me and people losing them. We have been burning through ships faster than expected. We've had to do supply runs from Jita as well as ship sharing and contracts flying in the middle of combat to get people into the right ships. It has been a lot of fun and very intense.

Reshipped we went back to null sec. They seemed a bit mad. The gate was rather full. The boys managed to kill a Talos anyway and we also nipped a Falcon as we all died to bombs and bubbles and alpha. It was glorious. I we on top of the Falcon who was trying to jam all of us as we killed him. TiDi had hit so he exploded slowly as I made it out of the bubble and died.

Back at the campgrounds we stood down the official fleet and put together a kitchen sink of shield ships to go off and do stuff. I decided to undock my stabber. I had put it together a while ago but never flown it. Bold and proud we ran off into space. We were disorganized and a fleet of assault frigates and all the ECM jumped through us. Then they came behind and pincered us with a stack of talos and pointed things.

It was quite a cute tactic and well done. I think we may have irritated them some. But they pincered us and killed Brantus. We saw they were trying to pinch us so it was starburst time. I was about to warp off when pointed. I jumped knowing I'd die on the other side. But we have to try. They were taking down another squad member that had to jump. Would I make it out? Nope!

My kill mail. el oh el oh el as DP would say. http://seventwo.killmail.org/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=19557901

Three blackbirds and two falcons. Webed, scrammed, jammed, damped my entire bar was illuminated with bad things happening to me. I've been giggling. They put together a solid 7-2 fuck you fleet. We're not going to engage that in our kitchen sink fleet. That being all of the jams. They did kill three of us in the process. It has been hysterical. The three fights we have had previously they did not bring all of that ECM. Heheheh.

I had to putter AFK and the boys wound up getting hot dropped by XDeath. No one died. Amused as hell we docked up and started prepping for the next fleet. Down to my last Jaguar and my Wolf hopefully I'll be set to make it till we head home without reshipping.

I think the locals may be tired of us?

Word from the Heath is randoms have already started to appear to camp the various gates and hang out. Exciting times. Also, the fight with Goonswarm was frapsed and will hopefully be edited and posted soon along with possibly another good fight we had against Dead Terrorists that I missed because I was at work.

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 …
