Bungling in to a battlecruiser

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

The Viator transport is swapped for a Myrmidon battlecruiser, a fairly sure sign that his planet-goo collecting is finished. The Imicus scanning frigate is swapped for a Nereus hauler, though, which makes me wonder if a new hauler will make itself vulnerable, for small values of vulnerable given the state ...

Making ISK and missing ships

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

I'm a masochist at heart, apparently. Returning to the home w-space system may be worthwhile this evening, though, what with all the anomalies that have popped up recently. There are also three signatures, however, and I had better check to see what they are before making any firm plans. One ...

Wormholes popping

Saturday, June 14th, 2014

Lurking on a wormhole, waiting for a scout. I can't really say why, because beyond this w-space system being his home there is little reason to believe the Imicus frigate will come back this way any time soon. I think I'm more frustrated at the new behaviour of the interface ...

No chance to chase

Friday, June 13th, 2014

It's a full house when I finally get my ship on-line, fashionably late to the party. 'What are we going to do?' Good question. Scan that second signature in the home system for a start, and if it's gas I can leave my colleagues to suck on it for ISK. ...

Managing to kill a low-sec rat

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

The barely scratched Epithal hauler is back in his tower, where he sits for a moment before going off-line. I dunno why, his stupid ship will let him collect all his goo with little threat. But he's gone. The Helios covert operations boat returns from wherever, and is joined by ...

Not everything comes to she who waits

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Sleepers can get bent this evening. Well, the few in our one remaining combat anomaly and those that don't really count in the couple of ore sites. I wouldn't even venture in there normally, so ignoring them tonight is simplicity itself. I scan for our static wormhole, warp that way, ...

Single-handedly destroying new player retention

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

It looks like a standard start to my evening, but it's easier than normal. It seems our static wormhole collapsed in on itself and spawned a tiny Big Bang—so, a bang, I suppose—for its replacement to be on the same locus. I warp across to take a look, the wormhole ...

Having a go at a Helios

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

Two pods are at the tower with the Orca industrial command ship. One has stowed his Retriever mining barge, the other left his behind as a wreck in the ore site, kinda helped along by yours truly. I'm curious to see what they do next. A Buzzard covert operations boat ...

Not killing a ghost

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

The new signature at home is a new pocket of gas. We have people for that. Not me, I'm hitting the wormhole. It's adventure time! Jumping to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system and updating my directional scanner shows me a tower and no ships. Okay, not so much adventure ...

Taking a guilt-trip to low-sec

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

Leaving our static wormhole behind, I see a pretty standard tower lacking ships on my directional scanner in the neighbouring class 3 system. Warping in what I hope is the opposite direction in order to launch probes flings me in to a second tower, but as this one is also ...
