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?

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday so yay for unallocated skill points.

Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked.

In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end of A…

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…
