Christening

"Ares has me pointed."
"Is it peanut butter?"
"Its peanut butter!"

Or such as the coms after the boys decided to poke the brave newbie nest after we chased and fought them, had, Flying Dangerous jump in a million stabbers (or so it seemed) and found ourselves lacking in spaceships.  http://seventwo.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=20442196

Over the course of the evening I died twice, losing my mighty Jaguar. First was a battle with Moon Warriors when I capped out and couldn't keep capped in. I was hoping I'd be able to cling to the Talos but it was not to be... at least that moment. The boys did kill him before we left the field. And then we stayed on their station and fought them and fought Eve Uni and eventually went to reship some more. http://seventwo.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=20441300

It was an interesting evening. We were rolling kitchen sink. Shield nano stuff. I've missed productive kitchen sink groups. We had everything from interceptors to nanoing Typhoons. Then the boys wound up trapped in Brave Newbies home system because they'd not stop fighting them and met the truth of being blobbed as people screamed, "Get Wrecked" in local. In the end it was all Altaen's fault for having shot at them and stirring that in the first place.

In the end they decided to extract themselves. Reships after reship. And the insta warp was compromised. So yes, that was quite the fire in the end they were burning in. http://seventwo.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=20442457

It was quite the productive kitchen sink fleet. We didn't win any type of ISK efficiency war. We never tried. Somewhere there we lost two typhoons, an Ishtar, a Tempest, and what seemed like a dozen cruisers. We reshipped in random places, ran home and switched, and ran back out. Some left in battleships and returned in cruisers. Others came home via the pod express. In many ways I like these fleets the best. They are not a polished representation of what we can put out. Instead, they are like familiar slippers. Warm, comfortable, fun, relaxed. They are the fleets that I grew up on and they are almost a type of comfort food. No logi. No ECM. Just space and taking every fight everywhere.

These are not suicide fleets. Oh yes, we may die. We probably will die. But we will take a lot out with us. There is a difference between taking all the fights and suiciding your ship stupidly. At these moments it is the strongest. Loss is accepted and dismissed. no one is scolded for dying.

It seems a fitting way to christen our new alliance. We finally got around to making one.

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 …
