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).

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

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
