A Better Choice

A fleet for combat interceptors was up again. Remembering my unhappiness with the Taranis I went with a claw this time. Technically I can fly the Amarr ones but I decided to go the easy route and lean back on the familiar. A Claw is not a Stiletto but it feels pretty damn good anyway. The funny thing is that I prefer my Ares to my Stiletto but hated the Taranis. I wound up really liking the claw. But first, the most important thing.

The Claw has adorable stubby wings!


I'm reminded of the first time I saw a Wolf. I wanted to fly a Wolf so badly from that time. It was amazing and sturdy and killed everything. It turns out I actually hate flying Wolves. Oh well. The Claw, if I cannot fly my Stiletto or Ares is not a bad backup plan I have discovered.

Having no idea how to fit it I did the smart thing. I whined in corp chat and got fits off of other peoples loss-mails. I'm getting better at this fitting thing. The more skills I have the easier it is to swipe fits from people. Win, win.

The bubble immunity of interceptors is amazing. The entire caught in a spiderweb thing that I hate so much goes away. But the Claw is not a Stiletto and I learned that when the first kill (a Merlin) died because before I could lock it because my locking range was not a Stiletto/Ares. Frustrating that but I did remember it for the future.

I didn't have a lot of time for the roam. It was a work night. I rarely join into fleets on work nights. I normally hate having to log off in space or in random stations. I always feel like I run into fleets or gatecamps and burn in a fire when I'm alone. However, in my interceptor I was empowered. We killed a Cerberus who had his drones out and on auto-aggression before we bailed as they formed up. Sweeping around in them is rather fun and we covered ground at a tremendous rate.

I had to leave however. I made my deep safe and used safe log out, enjoying knowing when I came back I could just head home. From the looks of the kill board the boys found something that found them back about half an hour after I left.

I'll keep the Claw. The stack of Taranis will go in the trash (aka I'll sell them).

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

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f

What are all of these buttons for?

My snooty villager, Naomi, wants to move out. I picked her because she is a blue cow with some wild makeup but we have not really bonded like I have with Savannah and Mitzi... oh wait yeah wrong game. So, my clan is almost finished the second step of the Manhunt in Division 2. We just have one more zone to clear and then we can hunt down the secondary target to reveal the next... err wait, waaaaaiittt... Sorry about that. Resetting things. What do I want to do? That has been my problem for a while now. If I play Eve, what do I want to do in Eve? While I did PvP it was never my draw. The old PvE sucks. The new PvE may be okay but do I want to do it? Who am I? What am I? And do I need to be unique and interesting? I think that I may want to look in small wormholes and try a exciting, fragile life. With some of the ships that are available I can, perhaps, have an interesting life where I may or may not fall prey to someone but it does not have to define what
