An Impairor Excursion

I decided that I wanted to see one of these uncloaked structures before the entire story changed or something and they went away. So, this weekend while moving an alt from one spot to another I decided to rebel against my orderly plans of market stocking, blue print copying, and mineral hauling. I would see some of the Eve Online that I've been so invested in and playing so little of late.

My mighty Impairor undocked. Bright and sleep it lept through stargates, charged through the depths of high sec on my stealth mission for adventure. While it looked as if it had things to do there was a secret agenda. In each system I scanned my overview until suddenly, I saw it. Boldly, nay defiantly, I broke free from my autopilot route when I saw my first unidentified structure on my overview.


Bold Impairor. Fly golden bug. And fly it did with nothing but its civilian miner and laser it flew boldly towards the unknown.


I've heard about how big the uncloaked structures were. And they are amazing slender needles that sit in space surrounded by a cloud of dust. I learned that the beacon was 134 off of the structure. That did not stop me. My Impairor switched to its main engines and slowboated as only a rookie ship with an alt with no navigation skills can creep across 30k of space until I could use the 'look at'' command.


Pretty amazing stuff. I love it. I hope that we can look at a redo of stations at some point. I know that the art assets will have to be redome but I still want it anyway. I also knew that these things could be dangerous. I felt a thrill. Would drifters spawn? Would they challenge my bold Impairor?


So sleek. Pewter tinted with greens. It is more gold against the blue of the Caldari nebula. I bounced off of it.


Oh noes! An attack! Panicked I fled. Run bold Impairor! It will take you long enough to get into warp that they will cross that 100k and actually hit you at some point. Run Impairor run! Escape into the night!

I made it away. So close did they come. 123K off as I slipped into warp. I feared they would follow but I landed upon the Saisio gate alone. And I jumped.

Good by unidentified structure. Thank you for the adventure.

  1. Apparently those structures are so big that you can warp from one tip to the other...

    ...that would be fun to try if I was convinced that CCP is going to do anything for high sec dwellers. But then I wouldn't be bitter...

  3. I love how CCP Games is tying in the emerging lore with the ongoing development of EVE Online. Can't wait to see how this new story with the Drifters evolves.

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

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

CSM9 - Day 140

The week has been the Summer Summit for CSM9. That did not mean that the world stopped for us. Things in Eve moved forward because we have the Oceanas release coming on the 22nd. CCP Fozzie has released a small interceptor tweak . Interdictors are also being retouched for fine detailing. The thread about it is up. This is not a rebalance where the ships gain complete new roles and identities. This is focused on fine tuning. I have spoken up about the fact that the situation where Titans were being bumped out of POS shields was not acceptable to me. I’ve voiced my disagreement as have other players. CCP Fozzie has posted changes to cyno usage outside of POS force fields . I am not fully happy with this change. I am happy that it will stop the Titan bumping issue. I am not happy with not being able to light cynos on shields. I feel that it will negatively affect tackling ships hugging force fields and I have expressed that. The topic came up in one of our Summit Meetings with CCP Fo
