Perspectives

I've been thinking about ships in a somewhat utilitarian way. I've also discovered that I find that to be interesting. Chella needs a ship for my exploration of the Amarr story line. I've moved her to Amarr for now and she has been puttering around in a blockade runner. But, I think I'd like to put her in something else for her explorations but I don't know what.

Ships have always been eyed for their value surviving combat or getting me around low sec. With Chella following about the high sec stuff I find that I can fly whatever I want. Something fast and agile with enough tank not to pop to a random artillery Thrasher on a gate if I stop paying attention.

I'm debating Daredevils just because, why not. I don't know if they will fill all of that. I have no idea if Chella can fly interceptors. Maybe? I'm to lazy to look right now. But maybe there is something better? 

It's been a long time since I just sat down and looked at ships. I've had my stable of old, familiar hulls forever. There are ships that I've never thought about flying because it was silly to fly them where I lived and what I did.

But all of those restrictions are gone.

I can do whatever I want just because I want to. I have no ones billboard to harm. No one to offend with a wrong decision. No one over my shoulder at a loss mail.

It is still hard to take in.

So, I think I'll start flipping through ships and decide what I really want to fly.

  1. Passive regeneration shield Wolfs make fine combat encounter mission runners up to Lvl 3. Tough nut to crack. Impetuously pounds NPCs. Super easy to fly. Delightful off brand use. Still a Wolf.

  2. You know, I haven't seen an insta-lock Thrasher in a long long time....

    Makes me wonder where all those people have gone.

    As for ships, I would pick a cloaky T3, they're pretty much the optimal solution for travelling.

    I'm not sure what you mean by 'Amarr Storyline', is this the spooky Drifter menace? Or the COSMOS missions? (If the latter, I'm not touching this discussion, because I don't know what's involved.

  3. +1 for T3, confessor perhaps for Amarr flavor.

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…

The lack of perfection

I had the pleasure of having Keskora Yaari. We met a bit after I started the CSM and hit it off. As friendships often do it developed into being about the people and not the medium that we met each other in. My new house has a guest room (my previous one was taken over by my mother who moved in and never moved out) and it was fun to have someone in that I could babble about a large part of my last six months of house renovations.

I tried to pamper and spoil her. Those are always the most fun things to do when a friend comes over. I did make sure she was stuffed full of local interesting things. It is only fair, after all. My abilities as a host have improved and I was pleased with myself.

One of our interesting links, outside of Eve, is dogs. We are both dog people. Over my years blogging I have discussed and shared time my creatures. From the passing of Nyx to the acquisition of Intuition. He is doing great by the way. He is two and a half now!


We discussed Eve some but it wasn't…
