Getting an Epithal

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Back in the home system, I repair the damage to my Proteus strategic cruiser after the curious case of the onffline tower. Now to return to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, where I'll ignore the Epithal hauler up for grabs by the same tower, what with the Onyx heavy ...

Slow chase

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

Maybe I'll go back for that hauler. Now that the tower no longer has a vice-like grip on my strategic cruiser, I could take my pod in to grab the Epithal and claim it for myself. Or maybe I should at least scout this system properly first. My opportunistic assault ...

Blink and you miss it

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

The class 3 w-space system has been subdued. The Venture mining frigate we nearly caught returns to the tower, the pilot stutters, and goes off-line. It's time to scan properly. There are four anomalies and twelve signatures, two of which we know about. One is our K162, the other the ...

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 ...

Taking on a Talos

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Hello, there's a Talos on the wormhole home. The battlecruiser isn't really blocking my way, as I'm sure I can evade a single ship on a wormhole, but what else do the pilots of this class 5 w-space system have around? I've been at a distant tower, watching a hauler ...

Mobile boring unit

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

I'm about to recall my probes, but my curiosity gets the better of me. What type of static wormhole does this class 5 w-space system hold? It's not a particularly interesting question, admittedly, but there may be a reason why the system is unoccupied. I have time to find out, ...

Stopping at the start of a chain

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

I have a bit of spare time, I'll have a poke around the w-space constellation to see if anyone is out and about. Of course, I pretty much have to uncover the w-space constellation first, what with wormholes needing to be scanned, unlike stargates, but I'm expecting that. I ignore ...

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, ...

'Ceptors are scary

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

Checking the exit to low-sec takes me to a system in Metropolis, where there is no sign of the Astero frigate or any other members of his corporation. They've definitely moved out of today's neighbouring class 3 w-space system, with a little help from us. There are a couple of ...

Looking for wrecks

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Pop, pop, pop. High-sec rats are easy. So easy, in fact, that I launch probes to scan the one extra signature in this system to keep myself entertained between target acquisition and cycling my autocannons. It's a wormhole. I may go there, I may not, particularly as a capsuleer tagged ...
