Fieldtrip

I've never been good at forcing myself to do things that are not fun in Eve. In truth, I tend to become bitchy when I force myself into situations I don't want to be in. It is not a mood I enjoy being in. A cranky adult is an unpleasant experience. I should probably bve writing about the industry changes and some other stuff. I expect I'll work my way around to it.

Right now, I'm distracted. You see, for reasons I cannot fathom Siuil and Vov decided to do a bunch of 4/10 and 5/10 DED sites that Siuil found pooled in a back system. On most days it would be an amazing situation with five sites piled one on top of another in one place. This time it was far from that because earlier in the afternoon an incursion had hit the system.

Incursions are more than annoyances in low sec. People often move out of the area all together. Some groups do run these incursions to great results. But, when it comes to the day to day movement and activity they are, in my opinion, a nightmare.

Not that kind.

Every time someone in low sec complains about how horrible incursions are people tell us to suck it up and that they are not that bad. I can only roll my eyes. I have abandoned two ships two systems away and I will go and get them later. Dealing with the gatecamping blapablaping rats is not worth losing my ISK making boats. Getting into Isto is a trial and when the idea came up to go on a field trip we said, "Okay!"

So off we go to somewhere far away. I did a jump planner and saw that it would be several midpoints. I covered my eyes but I will survive. I've done this before and I've gotten damn good at it. Time is ticking down. I came home from work and started to get my things shifted. I'm just buying new boats instead of trying to make multiple trips out of Istodard. Maybe I will lose them all and shit up my ISK efficiency some.

The biggest part is balancing both my logistics and the sudden influx of corp logistics on each other while figuring out where my staging systems for things are going to be. I think I have it all figured out. This is why I love my personal chat channel. I will set the MOTD with all of the pertinent information. It takes me forever to learn new systems. Everyone else is rattling off names and I'm squinting at Dotlan in frustration.

Such is life. It will be interesting to see if the POCO war with Kelts will continue as well as other fires the boys have stirred up. My POCOpire may be in for a shaky time (as in my losing it all). We shall see. I think I have enough Data for an overall monthly look at my POCOs. I'll get that written up and it will help me see if I will rebuild my empire should it fall (I probably will because I am stupidly stubborn sometimes and I am very focused on these urban renewal projects of mine).

And if it all burns down?  Well, it can rise from the ashes. Someone has to have a Phoenix somewhere.

    1. My lifelong dream of becoming Aridia POCO Baron is soon to come true!

      What are you smoking to have taken that from this post, friend? Sharing is caring.

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
