Inty Fail

28 04 2010

Never proceed to engage a Arazu with a crow, and assume it has no scrams, and orbit at scram range, and forget that a arazu can scram up to 18 km.

If you read that, then you can probably figure out what i did ūüėÄ


CCP lied to us on the Tyrannis trailer!?

21 04 2010

On the Tyrannis trailer, despite how pretty it is , seemed to mislead us about the features in Tyrannis. It asks us whether “we will rule with benevolence or ruthless tyranny” I don’t know about you guys, but making machines mine doesn’t seem very tyrannical to me. ¬†From what i have seen on singularity, there are no aspects of manipulating people on planets, which not only is a huge let down, as that was one of my most desired features, but a misleading trailer. Whether CCP actually planned to have us rule over PEOPLE is unknown to me, although the hope is still inside me that they will include this in the next revision of Tyrannis, or ¬†Incarna (if it is ever released). It is quite¬†disappointing¬†to have a trailer advertise something different then what is being released, but lets hope what is actually being developed will make up for it ūüėÄ


Eve gate ie: facebook in eve

21 03 2010

In 2 days we get a public alpha of eve gate ie: facebook for eve. It is basically what ive described, facebook for eve. You get a profile page, a home page but what is interesting is a calender page and a new people and places page. I see ¬†the calendar as something eve needs dearly. It lets alliance¬†schedule¬†ops easily, rather than rely on mail, and this could potentially bring in more people to fleet fights, as we know now exactly when it is. Another cool feature is that you will be able to use it out of eve. I dont know about you but ill¬†defiantly¬†be keeping tabs on what my alliance mates are doing while i’m in school ūüôā ¬†Ill be testing it out when they release the alpha on sisi. Ill be sure to include screenshots. Until then, fly safe and kill lots

My first blob

13 03 2010

Last night, I had a awesome expereince with 150 man blob, my first ever blob. We were told to get into sniper bc’s / hacs, so I got into a eagle , and made my way to the rally point. about 30 minutes later, we started heading out through the networks of jb’s.

Eventually, we reached the final stargate before our destination. A hostile fleet was sitting on the other sode, composed mainly of sniper zealots. I was having issues with getting on fleet coms, so I had a alliance mate relay orders to me on vent.

The FC gave orders to jump through, and immediatly after i pressed the jump button, eve crashed. The absolutely worst moment for eve to crash, when I was jumping through into a hostile fleet. Thankfully, I managed to relog, still in my ship. Good thing I was just a neglible little eagle. The lag was epic on the other side. Now I see what everyone is complaining about. I could barely scroll my overview and find primaries, even though they were broadcasted and supposed to be at the top of the list. Not being on the right coms didn’t help either.

Eventually we managed to kill and rout the enemy fleet, bringing in the first victory of the night and sadly, the last for me. I survived this battle unscathed and we were ordered to warp to a pos, so we can regroup with some capital support. Cyno with lit, and loads of carriers came in. We were told to align and warp to gate. The enemy smartly chose this time to strike, with around 10 stealth bombers uncloaking, and dropping bombs on us. Being a sniper fitted eagle, my tank was not very tough, with only a LSE II in case of emergencies. I rapidly debated in my mind whether to try and MWD out of the massive blob around the gate and risk getting hit by the bombs for full damage, as the MWD greatly inflated my signature radius, or try and navigate out with no propulsion mods, and take on the bombs for reduced damage. I chose the latter, which led to my demise. One bomb hit me-75% sheilds, okay that was not so bad. A second , third, forth barraged me. I rapidly slammed the need sheilds broadcast button, praying one of our logistics would rep me in time- a prayer that was made in vain.

A few bombs later, my ship exploded, and promptly, the enemy fleet on the other side decided to jump through. I took this oppurtunity to leave the system in my pod, and made my way towards jita to buy myself another sniper ship. Once I arrived, I bought a ferox instead of another eagle. The ferox has a few advantages over an eagle, mainly it’s price and tank. A ferox would have survived the bomb barrage, where as the eagle didn’t. Even if it didn’t, the loss wouldn’t hit me as hard as a dead eagle. Once I bought the ferox, it was pretty late , and I decided to call it a night. Let’s hope next time I don’t die ūüôā until then , fly safe and kill lots ūüôā

What do you guys think? Comment and tell me about your first blob experience.

As you can guess, i just got my first faction lewt from 0.0 ratting ūüėÄ

I was just doing my usual thing, when i warped into the next belt and i read those beautiful words on my overview. Dread Guristas Extinguisher. :O :O, i promptly killed it, and found a faction sheild amp, a faction explosive field, a crystal tag and 1000x guristas ammo.

Not bad for a few weeks in  0.0 eh?

Lack of content

6 03 2010

My dear readers, as you may have noticed i¬†haven’t¬†made a post in a very long time. ¬†This is not because i have given up on my blog. This is simply because i have nothing to write about. A very wise man once said don’t force posts, only blog when you have something to blog about, and i entend to follow that rule ūüôā

So please, have faith,  subscribe, and remember, the best things come to those who wait longest.

First 0.0 roam

25 02 2010

As the earlier post states, my corp has moved into 0.0 with an alliance. Yesterday i took part in a roam with them. To correct the title, it was the first low sec roam with the alliance :P. I happened to be in my manticore at the time, so i joined fleet and i was designated scout. We moved around a few low sec systems, in a bc gang, and were told to use gank tactics, which means attack at gates and station, kite and kill :).  There was;t as much action as i was expecting, but was still more interesting than missions.

I also , interestingly, had my first experience with lag. Even when i used to pvp in high sec, i would almost never have any lag during fights, and if i did it was very rare. I jumped into a gate in my sb, and sat cloaked as a scout. A few minuts later, i heard shouting on vent as a typhoon was about to jump through. Funnily enough, i see gate activation, but no typhoon. As the rest of the fleet jumps through, the aggression notifications appear on my screen, but i still dont see anything. WTF CCP?  I get the call to jump back through if you can by the FC, as the typhoon managed to tank us and reach the gate. I could still approach, but as soon as i jumped through, eve just crashed, prompting me to relog.  Thankfully, as soon as got back on, everything was back to normal.

We moved around a bit more, eventually getting bored and started aligning to the gate to leave. But miraculously, on the other ¬†side of the ¬†gate we were camping(which i was sitting at cloaked¬†hehehe) a red mega arrives and jumps through. ¬†We butchered it¬†mercilessly¬†:D. It didn’t even survive 2 minutes. ¬†Can’t blame it though, nothing (sub cap) can survive ¬†against 10 BC’s on their own. After that we just burned back to home system, split the loot and parted our separate ways (Unfortunately¬†i had to log off at this point).
