Ship Spinning RETURNS! + Roam Report

SO YAY! Ship spinning is back god damn am I happy no more staring at some fucking retarded blank door cause incarna is a pile of wank.

Any who.. Fuck updates! ROAM TIME! I went a poodling about this morning with some mah brick buddys. I was whoring myself off in a ranis. Glory was leading the roam and we literally went round about 20 jumps and found Nada.. Zip.. Zilch.. BUT with only a few minutes till DT our hero tackling malediction saved the day and managed to tackle a rapier abit of gate in a bubble in 4K- we all dived in to help out Chaos Overdrive who was by now dieing fast. Just as he hit 30% hull the Rapier took its last breath and exploded in a firey ball of homocidal glory. With the Maley saved we hit station and slept through the downtime! Next to time someone shouts For chaos or glory! Im going with chaos.. Not that anyone would shout that .. Ok well maybe me!

After downtime small roaming fleet went up to go to Y-2 to harras goons and TEST-icles. We ended up snagging a few kills on the way like this Tengu who got luckily deloaked by one of our tackle. Shortly after we hit a ROL Ihub and Tcu which both went Kaput. During which a small 3 man gang headed our way so some of us hit the gate and nabbed the Crour and Curse. We reshipped and headed back towards Y-2 playing cat and mouse with a couple frig gangs and nano cruisers who got the beat down and lost a few of there friends. Like this falcon, cheetah, scimmy, Jaguar and a couple rifters. After that we hit Y-2 didnt get any fights from goons so headed back to 1dh where we had our way bared by evoke in a large fleet with more logi. We engaged anyway for the lolz and lost a few people trying to bypass them after disengaging me included :P I lost my huggin as soon as a fly catcher that bubbled us died cause I was webbed and scrammed :(

But all was well in the end! We got most the fleet home safe and lost a couple of drakes but in retrospect it was fucking awesome fun :D

On a more recent note I just undocked from station to see a nuet cane undock behind me into the large fleet waiting outside locked him up took out a chunk from his shields with my Artys and then as he hit armour they fired again. And I stole the killmail :D WIN! No idea what he was doing... moron.

All in all so far a productive day :)

The man with the bigger stick

Its common knowledge that the man with the largest stick will win. Unless the man with a smaller stick is a Ninja in which case it doesnt apply.

Nothing beats chasing Goonswarm round the Park (Delve) with a big stick which shoots missiles and flys in space. I hopped into EVE tonight hoping for some instant PVP and low and behold the gods of New Eden laid down there blessings and I was shortly shipped up aligned and in fleet with a bunch of guys from Brick and Morsus + Other factions. We started chasing goons through a few systems out from 1DH till our awesome tackle caught up with them and they decided to stand and fight in Querious about 5 jumps from 1DH. Battle report is here! Report is fully constructed yet as some mails arnt posted and not all of the goon fleet got on. They were to busy burning away from us.. cant think why!

All in all was a good fight so thanks Goonies for standing tall and going in guns blazing <3 There was a scuff with Nulli shortly after but during the goon engagement my ISP had "issues" and I was out for 10 minutes. Not cool! Either was a great night and good to finally get some more kills under my belt.

Props to the Logi for keeping me alive while I was dc'ed! And during the fights was nice to log back in to find my drake still intact. And props to the FC's and whoever grabbed the reigns and pulled us in some more kills. Awesome teamwork from all! Starting to think moving into Brick was a damn good choice ;)

Fly it like you stole it!

Better late then never

Hai Guys!!!!

Im back, Somewhat anyway and I have a new home! Within the infamous BrickSquad. After considering a few options and believe me there were quite a few. I decided on Brick was a change of pace for me and nice to get back to 0.0 even though It wasnt on my mind till it came up.

Thanks to all who mailed, Spammed convos and replied on the forum, If I find Brick isnt to my taste I will hit some of you up for a chat! But dont hold ya breath as so far it's been a fun ride. After being sexually molested by Spacestripe I hit the apply button and got coms sorted blew myself up and landed in 1DH- in Delve. Sorted myself out with some ships and headed out to meet the fleet. We flitted about for abit before meeting up with our "Temp" Allies Evoke/Ewoks and some other people. We were off to kill a goon tower that was coming out of reinforced and were hoping for a good fight but they never showed and the tower died without incident. After someone decided to have a E-honour fight with Evokes Scimmy+Drake gang and we got owned after they warped right on top of us before we could warp onto them. We lost a fair few guys during the engagement but it was a blast so thanks Evoke and pals! <3

We reshipped into some more throw aways and headed out to intercept another TEST gang if I remember rightly! Snagging a couple of kills along the way. . They pretty much ran after we snagged a few stragglers and wouldnt stay to fight :(

Sorry there isnt any links for kill mails and battles tonight the posts abit late and I cba to find them. If anyone would care to link the killboard links in the comments I'll update them asap.

Watch out EVE! Randys Back!

Fly It like you stole it!

CCP Zymurgist Email

As the title suggest's I just receieved a new email from the man himself as all fansite owners will also no doubht recieve about now. Zym has taken over as Fansite Community leader it seems and has some interesting little changes coming in! I am looking forward to the Skype press conference and hopefully will get to listen in and maybe post up my own questions and ideas regarding EVE the game and Its community. Im sure there will be some great input and hopefully shed some light on the issues that have been arising and hopefully some awesome new ideas from the man himself :)

Bring it on Zym! Looking forward to it

Sorry for the Typo Zym x] All fixed now ya stalker :D


I've been wanting to come back to EVE alot more then I have been but there's nothing Inspiring about ship spinning at the moment. With nullsec on the back burner due to the recent conflicts and the fact its now basically a ISK machine for the russians I have no interest in going in to get constantly  whelped under the command of a FC who couldnt lead a piss up at a brewery or sitting for hours inside a POS only to be stood down because everyones balls fell off during the last half a hour of waiting. Highsec is a good option while I decide where to go and what to do, with Rand and Dee now capable of flying 3 out of the 4 maurader's available the Kronos, Paladin and the Vargur. Rands now also fully capable of flying the Matar and Gall capitals and has all his gunnery skills maxed out Im currently working on Medium Pulse Spec as I wish to fly the Legion in some death or glory roams in the event I find a suitable corporation that doesnt sit on there ass all day complaining about shit no one cares about.

With Fanfest coming up in several months regardless of my reduced presence in New Eden I am still going. I am hoping that it will provide the much needed moral boost and inspiration to get back on the horse and ride full steam into the nearest blob while screaming something about a guy named Leeroy Jenkins down the fleet comms. Im looking forward to meeting new people and people I know but have yet to get face time with. Amos, Dusty, Klin and a couple others should be attending so it will make for a nice little group.

For the people planning on going to fanfest sum up your reasons in one word? Mine is Inspiration, Whats yours?

Friday, 30 September 2011


While im stuck at work most days for 12hrs *sigh* I have been occasionally logging onto EVE to partake is some AFK mining while watching big bang theory :D

The dates are up for fanfest and Im debating on going :) Wondering who else out there will be partaking in the awesomeness that is fanfest!?

P.s Pancake that killmail sucked get better fail mails!

Playing EVE Passivly

Sooo it's the summer and EVE is on my play with passivly list. Which mostly revolves around setting up 20 12.5hr invention jobs a day + Anything that needs building and AFK'ing a freighter to and from jita. Now the beauty of this passive play is that I can build up ISK stocks while Im out for the summer and get it all blown up in the winter. Now so far passivly I can pull in around 500-600m isk a week depending on invention success's. A couple of bad batchs even when followed by a couple ok ones still breaks the production line alittle and also it doesnt help if the stations slots are full for 24hrs as that adds unneccesary time onto the queue! However seeing as Im not relying on it for anything I dont actually care that much :D

I'll be wrighting up another fiction post soon and will be posting intermittently!

Love you guys!


Quiet month!

Im not dead! Honest..

I've been enjoying the intermittent sunshine down my end rather then playing eve. I always end up taking time off during the summer to recharge my batterys :)

So far its been an amazing week. I recently picked up my new car a Black BMW 323i SE <3 She's beautiful and I have named her Evey. Haha.

Also Im still keeping up with invention during the day as a passive job! I will update on my invention success's tomorrow when I dont have work.

Much love

Arrogance and Ignorance - Is this the end?

You stand at a crossroads CCP. What you do now will decide the future of EVE. Or maybe it wont?
All I know is in the several years of playing MMO's never before has this kind of rioting been seen. Public flogging of any Dev/GM on the forums who was brave enough to come and try and tackle the bush fire with a water pistol. After several "incidents" which I should not have to repeat again the EVE Online community lashed out with a vicous attack on all fronts at there beloved CCP. Riots have perked up all over new eden with Jita, Amarr, Rens and Dodixie feeling the full force of the player base as they try and make themselves heard. Monuments are being shot at, channels are being spammed with "NO TO MT!" And forums are being blown apart from the shear awesomeness that is the playerbase. <3 You guys.

Only one devblog was posted since this started and it was a blatant "Fuck you" from CCP to us. The paying customer. I have to be honest and say it was the biggest pile of horseshit I have ever had the misfortune of reading. Since then it has been silent on the dev front with no communication what so ever. I am very very annoyed along with thousands of other players at the way this is being handled by CCP. I fully endorse a mass walkout by the CSM. I am with everyone when we say "ANSWER THE FUCKING QUESTIONS" And I am also probably not the only one hoping CCP come up with something better then that sorry fucking excuse for a devblog. Whoever masterminded that needs to be made to go to the forums and talk with the masses or kicked the fuck out of the office for that shoddy arrogant and damn right fucking ignorant response to the crys from the players for confirmation. CCP if you cannot figure out what we want. You should just shut down the server now.

Now I know why the blog roll suddenly went alot quieter... Shame on you CCP. Shame on you!

Rolling Trend.

I've noticed with many but not all of the blog's I held dear and near to me due to there awesomeness have for one reason or another quit eve, or just stopped blogging. This is a sad day as they are blogs I have read for over a year and really enjoy reading! I take my inspiration from them in some ways. Perseus over at Aggressive Tendencys was part of the reason I started PVP write ups luckily he is back to blogging again and providing entertainment galour even if its not as often as I'd like! Kirith Kodatchi over at Inner Sanctum of Ninveah was the reason I started my fiction I enjoyed his write ups and they were always entertaining to read during work. Along with many others they have shaped and influenced in some way how I present my blogs and how I come up with new idea's or topics. Everyone on that list has in some way made me want to check in everyday to see if anything new is up but alas some are dieing out and more seem to heading that way! Is this the be all end all of some of the most famous and infamous bloggers of the Eve Online community? Will there be people there to fill there shoes?

If anyone has any blogs they think are "worth the read" please drop in a comment! I'll always read a couple of posts before deciding wether to add you to my watch list! New/Old doesnt matter!

AT9 Write up of the Final Round!

I will trying to do this WHILE the AT9 Finale is running. So the data is upto date accurate so hopefully this goes well! Good luck to Hydra and Outbreak! COME ON HYDRA!

So the Outbreak team fielded 3 Sleipnirs, 1 Claymore, 1 Scimitar, 1 Huggin, 3 Sabres and a Thrasher and for Hydra they have 3 Vindicators, 1 Onerios, 3 Sabres and 3 Keres!

This is going to be a interesting match especially if those sleipnirs are autocannon fit a nice close range balls to wall fight is about to go down. Less then a minute till go time! 

Here we go! The first blood is drawn with the first Vindicator going into deep armor along with a sabre and another sabre. The sabre is down and so is the second sabre, one vinidicator is down now too! Damage being spread across the outbreak team but nothing substational. Hydra just lost a Keres along with there final sabre. The second vindi is about to hit structure and soon to be nothing but dust! Outbreak sleipnir is very close to armor! 2nd Vindi is down! With the Hydra Onerios hitting low shields. The sleipnir from Outbreak hit half armour before being saved by the scimmy. Hydra's final Keres is dippinginto armor being repped at the moment by the onerios, So far most of the DPS from Outbreak is being tanked by the onerios Outbreak switched targets to the Onerios which has now dipped into armor with the other Vindi at low shields and the final Keres is still hanging on with full stats all round. Outbreak sleipnir just hit structure! He got to close to the Vindi! And Outbreak lose a Sleipnir! Not a flawless victory for outbreak it seems. Outbreak has just lost a Sabre aswell and yet another one. It looks like Outbreak may have given them a little chance to shoot more stuff. Outbreaks 3rd sabre is down. Looks like Laedy is now ontop of the Huggin which is slowly going down. Deep structure and BOOM! Huggin down for Outbreaks team. It doesnt look like Outbreak is applying any damage to the Hydra team. The Outbreak Scimitar is now hitting armor and is in structure and boom! Scimitar down for Outbreak. 3 vs 4. 2 Sleipnirs 1 claymore and a thrasher remain for Outbreak with a Vindi, Onerios and a Keres for Hydra. The second sliepnir is downed by Laedy! With the 3rd following close behind! Claymore is going down too now with it reaching armour. The onerios is at half armor as the Claymore explodes. The final Keres died awhile back but I didnt see! The lone thrasher from Outbreak finish's off the Onerios as Laedy pummels the thrasher into the floor! A good match but not a fan of fixs.

Amazing AT! Especially the PL upset was funny. I still think Shadoo should keep that promise to go after goons! Good work guys all of you! Been a awesome time! <3

Rand o/ I had to quick type so some spelling may be off! Apologys <3 xxxxxx

CCP hire more of her!

CCP Sunset is like the EVE Princess.

Special thank you to Horizon's Edge.

I'd also like to put out a special thank you to a friend of mine.

His name is Suicidalpancake and yes.. He is pretty suicidal! He runs a blog over at Horizon's Edge. And I have only just realised that I've been getting a fair amount of traffic from his end! So please go have a read he has some great stuff on there regarding corp management and POS Security for all you newbies and such!

Ta Pancake! <3 :D

Busy couple of weeks for CCP!

So off work for 10 days! WOOOO! Yea time to get with the blogging.

So unless you hide under a Veldspar rock you would have been keeping up to date with recent events with CCP. First up would be that CCP have announced a License that you can now aquire to claim "Money" for third party apps and such. While this is amazing for people like capsuleer it is not so amazing for people like Rixx Javix over at Eveoganda or Dotlan or Eve-Files ect ect. Why you ask? Simple reason.. There is a claus in the license agreement which basically states that any and all people receiving "monetary" donations or payments ect HAVE to purchase this license which is $99 from what I saw.  So guess what? If your EvE related site has a donation button on it you have to cough up $99 a year to CCP to be aloud to accept donations. Not doing so without the license will probably eventually mean you get sued. Fun eh? Theres a threadnaught well underway and well I cant find the link right now so go look yourself <3

Next up Lulzsec a "group" known for it's DDOS'ing of sites and hacking aswell targetted EVE Online the last couple of days. Bringing EVE to a stand still for several hours due to CCP taking the entire server network offline just incase anything was or had been breached. Hence the random server cut offs late evenings the last few days!

Also the Aurum. It's to late for a rant about that and the effect it will have ect. So I shall leave that for tomorrows post! Yes 2 posts in 2 days.. Unbelievable!?

And INCARNA IS COMING!!! Yes folks tuesday the 21st CCP will destroy *cough* I mean deploy the Incarna patch. Downtime is considerably extended running from 05:00 UTC right through to 19:00 UTC. Which probably means at some point the next day knowing CCP and there patch deployment schedule. Personally I cant wait in some respects. I do wanna see the new turret animations and such and the space upgrade as im calling it now with the new nebulas. But Apart from that not interested. I dont want to buy vanity items. I dont wanna paint my spaceship and I sure as hell do not want to disembark from my god damned ship every fricking time I dock in station. I play eve to fly ships. Blow shit up and occasionally carebear when im bored! If I wanted funny hats and wallpaper I'd go install the sims. But I dont.. So please CCP for those of us who just have the wish to be malcontent little bastards and love shitting in someones back yard just to hear them cry in the morning give the option to turn it OFF! Not just for a month.. Not just till you decide you cba to listen anymore but for good? For aslong as WE like. I know there will be a few people who agree with me on this point. Nothing more frustrating then having to make using the station UI more fecking complicated.

I just cant wait for Jita to turn into the next Goldshire. ( Only Ex WoW players will get that ) and you end up having the 14yr old station trading virgins cybering with whoever has the tiniest bra and the biggest tits for ISK.

That is all.

Fly Reckless!

Fiction - The Return

I stumbled out of the medical bay gleefully aware of the morphine still present in my system.  The amarrian station glittered like I was inside a star; I was having a hard time focusing… The noise of the place slowly filling my ears, It was hard to distinguish the sounds at first and in fairness the whole landscape surrounding me was like looking into a glitter filled Christmas globe all snowy with golden flakes with the occasional movement.
I reached for what I thought was a chair which turned out to be a disposal robot however he did not seem fazed by the fact a large Gallantian had suddenly dropped into his world as he lost his footing over the bottle of Quafe on the floor and fallen smack bang on top of him. I groaned unhappily aware of the pain starting to manifest itself on my forehead as I place my hand on it. I pull myself up things looking a little more into focus now. I’m standing on the promenade that stretches the length of the station. Morphite Reinforced Glass separates everyone here from the vacuum of space.  I finally find the bench and park myself on it. Got to hand it to the Amarrians even there benches were high quality refined tritanium plastered with a thin layer of golden flak the cushions where soft and you sank into them as you sat down. They were more like regal couches then benches for weary station dwellers.
Looking ahead I could see an Abaddon floating idly outside the station windows, As if keeping watch something didn’t seem right. It was quiet... There were no people wandering the promenade no staff no security at the doors. Funnily enough I don’t remember seeing any nurse’s or doctors or any other viable human life form.  I started to wonder how long I’d been out... Where I was… When I heard footsteps running towards me and a voice shouted down the staircase just to the right of me that led to the ship hangars.
“Oh For crying out loud Rand! What in blazes are you doing here! We’re on red alert! You should be in the Med Bay!” Screamed Counter obviously out of breath from running the length of the hangars. “What the fuck is going on Counter? One minute I’m grinning like a five year old watching that Raven getting DD’ed then I wake up to find myself groggy and at an Amarrian station, Ya mind filling me in how long I’ve been out? And where the hell everyone else is?”  I grumble still acutely aware of the pain throbbing away in my head.
“Rand you were out for 3 Days, You just collapsed doctors said Exhaustion. We got you back here for medicals we know how stingy you are with your cloning. Then a distress call came about 78AU out near the barren planet that houses most of the systems inhabitants just a basic planet terraformed for real estate. A wormhole had appeared apparently just outside the planet’s atmosphere, Reports of thousands of ships appearing and people being slaughtered that’s all we got before the transmission cut out. Since then each planet along our route has gone silent. I sent out a scout to get eyes on the situation and before he died... We got this” Counter’s voice trailed off he clicked a button on a small remote and on the Gigantic Holo-Screen above the main archway to the centre of the station appeared a flickering image of massive devastation.. Ship carcasses littered the sky... Laser beams were burning across the image and in the background you could just make out hundreds if not thousands of Battleships...  They were tall and bulbous there three hull sections covered in massive spikes. I turned and ran towards the hangar; I needed to get to my ship!  This couldn’t be real I thought! I had dreamed this! Imag’s planet... Completely destroyed by the… Oh god… Could it be a vision of the future…?  I considered the possibility while I and counter ran towards the Megathron and Hurricane still floating in the gravity clamps.  There was no time to greet the new crew we had work to do and fast...

Suddenly the station jerked violently... They had arrived... Thousands of Sansha littered the sky’s... Like Angels from hell they descended on the station there lasers scorching the shielding, Red lights started flashing and sirens sounded. Like hell was I going to go through this again! “Counter fire up and let’s get the fuck outta here!” I screamed... terror and anger both Vying for control of my vocal chords.  “Way ahead of ya Randy” Counters voice grunted through the comms. I looked across to the viewport to see his Hurricane tear out of the clamps and micro warp drive out the main exit and into space. “Main entrance is clear Rand, Looks like they came in from a different Vector.” I don’t reply. I have too much to do. I have the crew manoeuvre the ship out of the station and set warp to high security space. Messaging counter to go and do the same. If my dream was a vision we have 4 days till Imag’s planet is destroyed. I will not let that happen.

“This is the Captain speaking. Buckle your seatbelts boys and girls. We’re about to go to Hell!”

All across the ship echo the words “Ooh Rah!”

This was gonna be one hell of a bumpy ride.

You just got solo'ed

Hey guys im back! I took alittle break from EvE for my bday and some various RL catching upto do! But im back and sexier then ever! Last couple days Ive just been pottering about doing level 4 missions for some isk. Anyway today Im cashing in a mission and my bud calls out that a drake is robbing his wrecks while he's mining in his hulk and he cant warp as he keeps bumping him. So im like ok cool I'll come to your rescue *flexs*.

I land at the belt 5km from the drake lock him up and hit orbit at 18km just incase he has a scram and web ect. I start ripping him a new one when a gaurdian warps in I immediatly switch targets lock up the gaurdian and burn right for him drop a point on him and off the drake because lets face it raping there nuetral repper is just funny. He stands no chance my cynabal having every skill at level 5 now! Ripping through him within a couple of seconds and he explode's into a expensive ball of dust. I switch point back onto the drake he makes an attempt at running away but you cannot escape a cynabal! And even he crumbles to my awesome guns after a short while. I offer a GF in local but there trap failed they lost all there ships and to top it off they were solo'ed by what they thought was a carebear so they remain mute and docked up for the next hour or so.

I think my responsiveness gets 10 out of 10 for that fight I assessed hopped in a ship I knew could handle the job and went in with malicous intent. I didnt expect the gaurdian to warp in let alone land 30km from me, either way I was quick to change what needed doing in order to get the most out of the situation! Im learning slowly ;)

Thanks again for the kills guys! Next time get the abaddon to aggress too :P

Agent changes being put into effect!

Hey guys as you may remember I did a post about possible agent changes that I'd been playing with on SISI well guess what yours truly brought you the first look at them and well CCP kicked up a gear and must have read my post ;)

Because they are being implemented! Heres the devblog feel free to take a look and remember Harsh Worlds top blog for upcoming news mwhahahah!

Woop Blogger works again!

Hey guys! Sorry it's been a couple days been a hectic week! Blogger was also down for me for some reason with some people able to post but everytime I tryed I got the whole unavailble message pop up. Episode 3 of Harsh Worlds Podcast will be released tonight!

And I've been dicking about with RIFT. After reading a fellow bloggers post about it I decided to give it a spin while I was round the parents and I have to say I'm impressed it definatly rivals WoW in every department. Graphically it's stunning on maxed graphics it's such an amazing scene. The combat is fluid and well just plain fun and the class system is extremely impressive! I'd suggest going over and trying out the 7 day trial. If your into fantasy MMO's then this one will definatly tickle the Elf inside us all.

On EvE related news due to RL this week for me's been quiet with enough time between work and car ect to continue with the invention stream. So far profits are good on average of 10 bombers being built every 2 days all the isk has been recovered and now the profits are starting to roll in which means I can start filtering ISK back into the main corp wallet! And keep people happy with ship replacements hopefully in the next 2 weeks. I do have to remind myself to flip some funds into the fuel division for next months fuel! But with the fuel bill being paid on the next 10 bombers and having 20 more togo on build I think it's safe to say so far it's been a massive success!

Anyway time for me togo fuel up with some petrol grab some breakfast and get under the car bonnet again so see you all soon!

SISI - Agent Changes?

So doing my little bit of snooping last night on SISI otherwise known as Singularity the test server for EVE Online, I came across some intriguing and very sought after changes! They have finally decided to look into revamping the agents! *Cheers* However whether or not these SISI side changes bear any fruit in the real world on TQ is another matter. The following changes have been noted and tested to some extent.

Visually the capacitor is more readable now with darker orange blocks and less of them representing what capacitor you have available so instead of say 100 blocks in total on a Battleship it's now 50 but there a lot more predominant then they used to be. Personally I think it's a nice small change and it does look a lot tidier.

Next up are the agents! They have finally gotten round to changing agent divisions to something a little more simplified. So there are now 5 divisions as far as I know. Security, Mining, Manufacturing, R&D and Courier. All involve one task and are pretty easy to identify by their names. No more courier missions in Security! No more mining missions popping up after running Angels Extravaganza! This is a welcome change and I will personally drag CCP out of the closet and into the fire if they do not see them through. You heard me guys... I'd hide if I were you!

Also with the agent changes comes the removal of their effective quality now it's simply Level 1-4 no more -20 or +20 agents they are all the same which again is a damned welcome change it will spread out pilots across more systems rather than hunting for those "Prime" agents with the best quality and such Pay outs remain roughly the same with some missions I managed to get pulling in more than they did before. This also means that skills relating to agent quality have been removed and skill points reimbursed. Someone has mentioned that Level 5 agents dropped on some pay outs from around 90,000 Loyalty Points to 60,000/75,000 Loyalty Points. Personally so what 60k is still a boat load so HTFU and stop your bitching.

These changes while miniscule in the grand scheme of things will defiantly make life a lot easier for people who run missions (Myself on occasion) and will also cause the populace to spread out as opposed to favouring the big mission hubs. A lot of space is being left unused and wasted and CCP's remedy is to put something in the space worth going for and what better than a level 4 agent where high sec is concerned. No more lagging in Ichoriya no more station bumps and can spam in Motsu! GO FORTH AND BE FREE MY MINIONS!

Tech 2 is actually kind of fun..

So as you all know I've been toying around with the T2 invention sideline. I have to say it's actually quite fun once it starts rolling probably due to the lack of actually barely needing to do anything. Every 12hrs I add more inventions and every 24hrs I build X amount of ships. Profits coming in are ranging from around 180-200m ISK a day so far. I have at the moment around 600m ISK in ship stocks left to sell so thats always good but im finding Im back logging blueprints however that is not a bad thing this time round as it means Im having a constant stream of build jobs and nothing ever stops! I am now spending the time getting research manager upto level 4 on both toons to allow me to double the inventions im running at the moment atleast this way I can put a second set on the same line to start after the first lot finish allowing me to reduce the flapping about and also means inventions are constantly running none stop. Same with build jobs currently I run 6 jobs of parts and 6 of ships simaltaniously over the two toons. This however is proving to be ineffecient so Im now training Mass Production 5 then onto Advanced Mass Production 4 on both toons. This will allow me to double the build output one toon can focus on the continuous supply of parts and the other can focus on the continous supply of ships allowing for a constantly flowing chain of ISK! Atleast thats the plan. So far starting capital of 500m ISK for POS+Labs+Fuel and also the BPO's for 2 cruisers and 2 frigates and around 100 datacore of two types, two of the ship data interface and the goo to build the components I have the 500m ISK returned along with 145m on the market and a further 290m ISK in ships currently on build with all the rest on top. So profitable so far? Yes extremely but things can change so im keeping close eyes on the market and making sure that the price I pay for certain items never rise's above a specific margain. So soon it will stand as this in way of a "Production Line" 20 Invention jobs running alongside 20 manufacturing jobs. 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Average estimated turn over of 200m ISK a day. Actual daily income at present 90m ISK upon start up. Profit Margain varying at 82%-101%. Invention success rate currently stands at 49% 30m ISK in datacores has returned 20 copys so far at around 10m profit per copy equating to 200m ISK worth of profit in end production. Once the lines been fully setup with the relevant skills this will be the estimated outcome of a daily run although I will be allowing for drops in invention success among market fluctuations but as it stands the investment was a solid one! I will keep you all updated on how it comes along.

Any Q&A regarding T2 Invention dont hesitate to drop me a message on Randunip and I shall guide you as best I can.

The little Dramiel that could

Recently I bought myself a dramiel, purely because I could. I've got to say I've never had so much fun flying a ship there fast manoeuvrable and do a lot of damage and the best part there cheap! 50m for a dramiel is a damn site better than it used to be that’s for sure! All hail CCP for putting faction stuff on the market tab now all we need is the modules! Hint Hint guys! The other reason I chose the Dramiel is because when I fc I like to stay in the fight while also having the ability to stay alive and nothing quite frankly comes close the dramiel for small engagements while being able to pin targets for the fleet with relative ease.

So last night I took my new toy out with a small gang to review its performance and this is what happened.

I formed the guys up in Mendori after KBP was buzzing like a wasp's nest. We took the rear entrance into Providence low sec was relatively quiet as we went through Rahadalon and down towards Assah there was a gang of 2 Hurricanes a Rook and a Rifter floating about but they didn’t want to come anywhere near us for fear of being pummelled into the floor. We hit G-5 and jumped in to be greeted by an empty local. But upon arriving at the next gate a Maller and a Caracal jumped through they managed to warp as we were just landing I noticed them burn to the sun and went there myself with the fleet not far behind. Call was made to drop bubble upon landing and we snagged the Caracal. Maller was smart enough to align out on landing and warped again as we hit the sun leaving his friend to die a bloody death. After a bit of local banter the Maller pilot wanted a 1v1 which Zamoxli happily obliged to everyone else warped in and whored the kill mail with scrams etc. The Maller pilot was really cool about it all and shortly afterwards I got convo'ed we pulled him into the public channel we have and 30 minutes later he joined us in Serenity Rising.

After this we moved along to the out gate and waited for counter to arrive in his interceptor from KBP route as he was late arriving. He managed to bait a Dramiel and a Enyo to engage him fleet jumped in and started pounding away the Dramiel for some reason wasn’t moving so I snagged him as he tried to run away and blew him up into teeny tiny pieces I managed to get a couple of shots on the Enyo before he popped too. They didn’t seem too happy in local after refusing to offer a GF which in fact it was.

We moved off towards 9UY4-H which is Chribba's system and plan was to dock up for a quick bio and then move off again. However upon landing at the 9UY gate our scout reported a couple hostiles on the other side counter legged it to the gate and jumped back to us only to be followed by a Dram, Stiletto and a Sabre. Counter went after the Stiletto after I called the Sabre primary and while we were popping the Sabre Counter lost his crusader. The dram ran away as fast as he could and they refused to play anymore or make any stupid moves so we jumped into 9UY and docked up for a bio. En Garde brought a 10 man gang into system and then left while we were having our smokes and ham sandwiches! The rest of the night was uneventful with Ruby losing his crusader to a cloaky hurricane off the Kari gate because he was 1) Drunk, 2) It was like 6am for him and he hadn’t slept and 3) He was flying directly at him! I jumped into Kari and logged for the night as I had work early all in all a fun productive and awesome roam! And the dram has already proved its worth.

On another note Harsh Worlds Podcast is going to be moved to every 2 weeks which gives me plenty of time to edit and plenty of time to do all my other stuff! Next episode due out Saturday next week on iTunes and you can follow our feed at www.serenity-rising.com.

Till next time!

lilfleebs bday suicide roam.. Without the suicide


We went out roaming in celebration of fleebs 100th birthday... Lol actually I'm not sure how old he was but hey never mind! We formed up in Keberz only to find upon jumping into HED-GP everyone wanted to be a pansy and run away so we dicked about for a bit and one of our guys got bombed and died which cause hilarity on comms for about 5 minutes. We continued on towards KBP- to find every system empty and not wanting of our fleet’s attention... At this point I had to log off for 10 minutes and within that time the bastards snagged a cloaky hurricane!

We continued onwards after I arrived to no applause from our ewoke and evoke friends regardless of the fact we bought with us gifts of isotopes and party poppers. After some mooching around in TU- we moved back into KBP to try and entice them with pancakes cooking skills... the smells wafted through the station and within minutes a drake came outside to play escorted by two scimitar companions. We engaged the drake spread points and when they started cycling reppers on the drake we poured all the dps we had onto one scimitar only to have him explode in a glorious fireball. The other 2 docked up obviously a little hurt about their failed attempt at... Actually I’m not entirely sure what they were attempting to do to be honest.

Anyway literally just after the tears from  TeamSpeak had died down the orca that had warped to station previously undocked and we proceeded to bump it a little for lolls and started draining his shields down he hit armour and expecting him to dock upon reaching structure he merely floated there and died. To our surprise and glee we ended up with a nice drop granted most of it was in a courier contract package totalling 70,000m3 you can see from this kill mail here, that he lost a fair amount and to top it off a cut from a conversation with our dear orca friend is below!

[ 2011.05.02 11:46:16 ] Wurzellocher > o/ 
[ 2011.05.02 11:46:27 ] lilfleeb > I am sorry for your loss. May i ask what happened? [ 2011.05.02 11:46:45 ] Wurzellocher > yeah, had a bug .. warp drive didnt cease operation, so i wasnt able to dock again
 [ 2011.05.02 11:46:51 ] lilfleeb > oh damn
 [ 2011.05.02 11:47:02 ] lilfleeb > i am really sorry 
[ 2011.05.02 11:47:07 ] lilfleeb > i though you would just dock
[ 2011.05.02 11:47:15 ] Wurzellocher > well, i lost around 1.5 - 2 bil, including colaterals fopr contracts. . will see, if i get it reimbursed .. otherwise shit happens ...
[ 2011.05.02 11:47:17 ] lilfleeb > i feel quite bad actually
 [ 2011.05.02 11:47:31 ] Wurzellocher > np. you ot a nice addition to your kill stats ;)
 [ 2011.05.02 11:48:06 ] Wurzellocher > fly safe and good hunting

Lesson here kids... Never try and warp off during downtime when hostiles are camping your station. 
It was also beyond us as to how he couldn’t deactivate his warp drive as he had been pointed around 10 times!

Oh well joy's come to those who wait and our ships unfortunately lived to fight another day!


P.s Harsh Worlds Episode Two will be released tonight due to editing software dyeing on me!
