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 ...

Polarisation without purpose

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Let's go! Out to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, where two drones are all that my directional scanner cares to show me. No tower, no ships, no wrecks. Those poor little drones, left all alone in space few pilots will pass through. At least there are two of them, ...

Messing with a Magnate

Friday, January 31st, 2014

How's the home system looking tonight? Pretty normal. No ghost sites, a bit of gas, the static wormhole. That's about it. I resolve the wormhole, jump through to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system, and update my directional scanner. A tower and no ships. This evening is just stuffed full ...

Raking in the relics

Monday, December 16th, 2013

It's time to strike out solo, my decision in no way influenced by being alone in the home system with only a static wormhole to keep me company, nopers. Jumping to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system doesn't give me much to look at, my directional scanner giving a clear ...

Hiding capabilities

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

'Some minor industrial infractions going on', so says my glorious leader when I come on-line. Aii is around along with Fin, and I can only guess that they're oreing it up. 'Just a bit.' So it's more like some miner industrial activity? Ha ha ha! Thankfully, the evening can only ...

Trying to ignore distractions

Monday, November 18th, 2013

I have no expectations for this evening. I'll just get myself on-line and see what's out there. Of course, that's not to say I won't be disappointed, but with any luck my level of disappointment will be greatly reduced. For example, it's disappointing to find that all but two of ...

Missing a Venture's a minor adventure

Saturday, November 9th, 2013

There's nothing to update at home, just a refresh of our static wormhole. It's straightforward to resolve, and I jump to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system to start today's adventure. My directional scanner is clear from the K162, and my last visit being only three weeks earlier gives me ...

Weirdos from another w-space system

Monday, September 23rd, 2013

Let's see if I can find someone to stalk. Space has seemed pretty quiet of late. There's no one in the home system, of course; that would be too easy. I'll try next door. Resolving our static wormhole and jumping to the class 3 w-space system has nothing and no ...

Getting reactions without a reaction

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

I'm scanning in a huff, having missed hitting a hauler in a case of horrible happenstance. I only continue scanning in the hopes that I will find a better opportunity further down the chain, which, considering I am in a class 1 w-space system, does not seem terribly likely. But ...

Empty ships and null-sec rats

Sunday, August 18th, 2013

So I don't come home with a tower. But that pretty much describes every day, so I don't think I should be judged for that. Sure, I could have destroyed the tower, after blowing up the Impel transport that carried it, but sometimes the lure of bringing home something so ...
