Missiles Burning in the Night

I guess this complex is mine. I orbit the beacon, confused as to what happened and overlook the situation again. Not knowing how to approach FW I've just been approaching it by slamming headfirst into it. I'm a bit lonely. I'm used to having more company. While I can listen to my boys on coms it is odd not having them in space with me.

My Faction Warfare life is very different from the one I normally live. Slowly, I'm learning the names of the systems. I have dotlan up in the background and I'm determined to hover along the front line to increase my chance of meeting someone. It may have been a busy night because space was very empty of complexes. I wandered for a while but I am still leery of Tama. Eventually, I moved a few systems over and saw a suspect and a war target in system. There was a small complex and I decided to plunge into it and see what was up.

On field was a wreck and an Atron. I went after the Atron at full speed. MWD on, long point, missiles, damps, manual piloting. I hit him a few times and he warped off. Okay. I keep thinking I've dropped my point but my cap was fine so I guess stabs? I finished off the complex and went through to the next system. There, I went to another complex and found a war target Incrusus. He warped off when I arrived. Confused, I completed the plex helping to secure the States.

I did another one or two and then I went to dock. I haven't yet decided on how my skills will go. I have Rockets V finishing by the time I wake in the morning. I'm not excited by this. Once, I would have been but now I understand how badly my support skills are and how a shiny T2 icon will not fix the world for me. Most of my other skills are still terrible. My navigation tree makes me weep.

My methods for fighting in Faction Warfare are simple. I stick to Novice and Small plexes for now and attack or defend as needed. I'm made of glass but I spend little time worrying about it. My alt is not yet a month old. I cannot hold her next to Sugar as any type of measure. So I do not and in that I am experiencing things a bit differently.

I think, in the end, this adventure will change me. I think it has changed me. When I feel my hesitation kick in I push it down. The ship is already purchased. I can avoid fights all day long. Why worry? In this environment I am fighting alone and for the State. I chase out those who would attempt to subvert the States control or I face them in battle.

Mighty Condor, Burning Bright.

  1. I wish you had joined up with the GM. The State are already in a higher tier.
    I had wrecked a ship with your name for CSM. You've got my two votes at least.

    1. Thank you for the support. I went Caldari because I'm combining learning about missiles with the FW thing. I have no other missile users and it seemed to be a good time to stack as many different things into one adventure.

      Gallente is my true love. My first account was Gallente. I do long for the Federation and maybe one day I will be able to atone :)

  2. Why does it not surprise me that Sugar has a well thought out plan of why she joined Caldari FW.

  3. Though it would have to be fearsome asymmetry, which I'm not entire sure works :)

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 …
