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 :)

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
