Downtime Update

It’s time. Time I come back to you, my readers.

I have a semi-decent connection now and can finally start playing EVE and organising the small rag-tag group of pilots I call my Corp. It’s great to see a small number of people wanting to work together – but we need a few more. Yes, things are on the up, we’re getting to know one another better and to work together.

With Corporate assets and contacts increasing, we’re getting better. But there is something missing; numbers. I’m not speaking of large numbers, no. Has it not dawned on you all that a small group of well-trained pilots can take on much larger fleets? For some – I’d say not. But for the intelligent people amongst you it must have.

For now, lets talk about today…

The Corp wallet is looking a little sparse to say the least, so I set the tax rate to 75% and decided it was about time we got together and started tearing holes into things for fun and profit.

First mission today before DT: Blockade against Serp.

Hmmm, good mission, plenty of bounties – only problem is running them solo in a shield tanked Ishtar means the Damps could cause a problem. I say a problem, more like the most annoying 45 minutes I’ve had in a while. The second spawn had me Damped down to an amazing 9km targetting range. I was impressed – in an angry way. So impressed, infact – that I started snarling. Which set my mood for the rest of the mission.

I asked Corp chat for help, or rather ordered the only other online member able to help me. Which she did, much to her credit.

It started fine, “primary Frigates, Cruisers and BC, I’ll concentrate my DPS on the BS.” Quite a simple thing to understand, and she did follow it through.

Fantastic, the Sensor Damping rats were dropping like flies to her Brutix. I concentrated on destroying the BS rats.

Here’s a copy/paste of the channel chatlog:

[ 2010.10.03 09:51:38 ] Dossie Kielle > Warp to me when you undock.

[ 2010.10.03 09:53:37 ] Dossie Kielle > Frigs, Cruisers & BC are primary. Kill the Vice Admiral and I pod you.

[ 2010.10.03 10:19:16 ] Dossie Kielle > Plain Admiral is trigger.

[ 2010.10.03 10:22:06 ] Dossie Kielle > Sis, stop attacking the Admiral.

[ 2010.10.03 10:22:26 ] Dossie Kielle > Shoot something else or I’ll start shooting you.

[ 2010.10.03 10:23:00 ] Dossie Kielle > Kiyo: CEASE FIRE.

[ 2010.10.03 10:23:12 ] Dossie Kielle > I will start shooting you if you do not decist.

[ 2010.10.03 10:23:28 ] Blacknightingale > Leoooo 🙂

[ 2010.10.03 10:23:29 ] Prismwind > ^^;;

[ 2010.10.03 10:23:35 ] Blacknightingale > wake up 🙂

[ 2010.10.03 10:24:07 ] Kiyo Tigerpaw > i am awake just playing with my box 2

[ 2010.10.03 10:24:27 ] Dossie Kielle > Pay attention, I told you NOT to shoot the plain Admiral.

[ 2010.10.03 10:25:06 ] Kiyo Tigerpaw > like i was doing much damage to him anyway

[ 2010.10.03 10:25:21 ] Dossie Kielle > You shoot a trigger again, I will switch to the Phobos and pod you.

[ 2010.10.03 10:25:23 ] Blacknightingale > thats not really the point i guess Leo 🙂 its what WoW guys call “pulling”

[ 2010.10.03 10:25:46 ] Blacknightingale > you tick off the wrong guys & that triggers more trouble

[ 2010.10.03 10:26:10 ] Dossie Kielle > Destroy the Admiral and you’ll cause a new spawn meaning I might lose my precious drones or you lose that ship.

[ 2010.10.03 10:26:59 ] Dossie Kielle > Either way, I will not be happy. Lets manage aggro and keep possible losses to a minimum.

[ 2010.10.03 10:27:37 ] Dossie Kielle > Now you can shoot the Admiral.

[ 2010.10.03 10:28:16 ] Dossie Kielle > Highest bounty = trigger. Keep killing the triggers and that means one or both of us lose our ships.

[ 2010.10.03 10:34:33 ] Dossie Kielle > Vice is trigger.

[ 2010.10.03 10:34:52 ] Dossie Kielle > VICE IS TRIGGER.

[ 2010.10.03 10:43:03 ] Dossie Kielle > Kiyo: you shoot the next trigger, I will – in honour of the lord Khaine – tear off your head and shit down your neck. Just a friendly warning.

[ 2010.10.03 10:43:21 ] Eledhan El’Eridan > your such a sweety rikki

[ 2010.10.03 10:43:58 ] dischordia > doing blockade or buzzkill?

[ 2010.10.03 10:44:04 ] Dossie Kielle > Blockade.

[ 2010.10.03 10:44:26 ] dischordia > heheh gl on the faction spawn

[ 2010.10.03 10:45:36 ] Dossie Kielle > Lord Admiral is trigger.

[ 2010.10.03 10:48:21 ] Dossie Kielle > The damps set my mood for the mission.

[ 2010.10.03 10:49:12 ] dischordia > i know the feeling dossie

[ 2010.10.03 10:49:50 ] Eledhan El’Eridan > yeah, with some of those spawns they can knock you down into 4 digit lock ranges

As you can tell, I have a way with words when I’m in a good mood. Anyway, fly dangerous boys and girls and always listen to your FC.
