Camped in the Station

The actual story:

It was a work night and I had logged in to spend a while discussing low sec with someone who wishes to dip their toes into it. I also had dinner to make and in general I was worn out. Floyde told me that he had some courier contracts from my high sec staging system that needed to come in. none of it was a big deal but it was the type of activity I could do while chatting and waiting for the next phase of dinner to finish.

I jumped my Rhea to my low sec border system and docked. I never warp from jump. I am too paranoid for that. As I was docking someone came and sat on my cyno without shooting me. I figured they wanted to see if anything else was going to come in. Then a Harbinger warped in all red outlaw like, and stared at me as well.

It is just my cyno Velator against a Stabber Fleet Issue and a Harbinger. The Stabber FI warps off and the Harbinger finally shoots me. I was sipping soup at the time and almost dropped it getting my pod out. I was slow and he did nail my pod but I warped out in a quarter structure (trained cyno alts for the win).

I went and checked the high sec gate and back to make sure no one was scouting my Rhea. I undock and the SFI appears as I start aligning. Now, I always stop as I align and I refuse to dock my Rhea in a kickout. When the SFI appeared I was not concerned until I saw him picking up speed and heading for me. No thank you. Ascendancy set and max skilks  or not I dont warp that fast. I redocked as he slammed into me.

Hmm.

We redid this a few more times over the next fifteen minutes. Brando came to scout himself out and commented that the SFI was a 100MN bumping fit that was cloaking.

Ahh. That made sense. As soon as he bumped me they'd come to assist or cyno in. Yuck.

Brando got himself out and Dave came to assist. However, Dave's brave Keres was taken down by a gatecamp. I decided to log off the Rhea. I didn't want to risk it with someone actively hunting me. Said SFI also logged off. About a half hour later I extracted my Rhea with no problems. I gathered up the contracts and found out they where to big for one fit. I nudged Brando who assisted with his jump freighter and we got everyone's stuff to them.

The dramatic reenactment:

Seeing Diz on Jabber, I decided to have a hysterical breakdown as to my stressful evening of having my Rhea camped into station.

Me:
Diz an evil 100000000000mn stabber fi camped my rhea into a station. I was just trying to do honorable logistics before bed. It was terrible. A villainous gate camp ambushed and tortured Dave as he came to assist!

I think the two are very similar.

  1. Next time don't log out. Just go AFK and let him camp the station while you eat, sleep or do something else.

    1. Also don`t forget to send Gevlon your electricity bill as he clearly lives in Hotel Mom not paying for his own electricity and has enough pocket money to declare perma war on goons and pay for a perma running pc.

      Because hey, why safe some real life money if you can just waste it by doing nothing and not having any benefit at all from going afk. Fk me, right?

    2. If you can't afford to leave your computer on, you can't afford Eve.

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 …
