Happy New Year to all four of you reading this blog!
Now that we’re done with that, let’s go back to EvE. December was a quiet month for me, real life I’ve been busier than usual and due to Steam sales and spending more time with my friends and girlfriend, I was slacking on the game a bit.
I did try out a few new things and I will be doing that some more in the New Year, seeing that I still want to go out in wormholes and see if I can kill some sleepers. I might even go check out null a bit, seeing that I have gotten an invite to join on a few roams with a guy I know that’s settled in Null.
Industry wise I’ve been slacking the most, I didn’t feel like calculating the logistic side of manufacturing this month so I’ve basically done nothing more than checking if I could manufacture items from what I had in stock, so my lines have been shut down the past few weeks. I will change that this week seeing that I’m doing invention again.
Speaking of which, I’ve been thinking about creating, or even buying a new science alt. One that I can use to invent more or just have my research chugging along, seeing that I only have one industrial character and a large POS that only I use, I figured that maybe having a second indy alt wouldn’t be such a bad idea.
Trading wise I’ve been fairly quiet too. I made a bit of profit on some items and loss on others. I’ve had a few 0.01 iskers send me angry eve-mails, which brought a smile to my face. And I’ve played the game trying out a few new items. My plan for this month is to actually do some research on more items instead of only selling and buying the items I use and manufacture.
I might also decide to move to another hub with my trader just because I want to see the action there, it’s not the smartest idea to do so if I don’t have the correct standings, but I don’t have them in the hub I work now and honestly don’t care that much about it, I’m just trying to figure out the market a bit and make a small profit from it.
Speaking of profit, according to jEveAssets and my Aura tool on android, my profit for this month was about 2b, so that’s not too bad for not doing much. I still have way too much ISK in my wallet though.
I need to start investing this, I just need to figure out in what. As everyone knows, you have to spend money to earn money, and this amount is not earning me anything as long as it stays in my wallet.
I’m starting this year with a total of 3 accounts and 6 Characters. I have 2 unused slots left and one of the characters is just a placeholder for a dummy corporation I created a few months ago.
If all goes well this year, I will be filling these slots and I might even start dual training.
Yesterday was a fun day on EvE. Not only did I receive a few evemails about joining WH corps, I also tried out something new.
Let’s talk about that first. What did I do? Well in a spur of the moment I decided to try and get the last Interbus Custom Office in our system down. I was checking my planets and saw that most offices had already been shutdown except for one. So I asked people in the channel I chat in if they were up to it and after about 20 minutes of me going to Jita in 3 accounts and buying a few “glass cannons” we were ready to start.
Seeing that I didn’t actually know what to use to destroy the POCO and I thought that you might get a suspect flag (can you tell that I haven’t read up on this?) I decided on two hurricanes. Neither of them doing that much damage, one was at 750dps, the other 540dps. The lower DPS one wasn’t able to use T2 turrets so that was why it was a bit lower.
The third account is a newbie 1 month old one that was flying a drake with 150dps.
Suffice to say, what I had was not nearly enough to take it down. Luckily I have people who sort of like me enough to come and help me.
Hey guys, when did we get shadows?
Seeing that we’re all noobs one way or the other, our DPS total was about 3-4k across 6 characters.
While we were shooting at the Office my Industrial character was slowly making her way to Jita in an Orca to buy a gantry and the necessary upgrade items.
When I got back to our home system we were at about 40% shield left. So I did what any person would do. I let my Orca drones fly out. That’s right, we have an orca on our Interbus kill mail!
I’d have laughed if the Orca had the final blow
It took awhile, but I’m pretty happy with the fact that our corporation is currently the proud owner of a POCO. I have no idea how long it will take but I like it because we did something new, and as a group. It was fun.
Yay, building things!
While all of this was going on I was looking at the wormhole mails I got and talking to one in particular. This guy turned out to be fun to talk to and I was planning on sending my application right after we were done with what we were doing.
Unfortunately, this person’s patience level wasn’t very high. Seeing that I was busy on 4 accounts at the same time I didn’t look at my main’s chat window a lot. After a few minutes he started to tell me that I should quit my corporation immediately and apply to his. I told him I was a bit busy and he kept telling me I should quit and that he’s waiting for my application.
Suffice to say that I reversed my earlier thoughts on him being a nice guy. Which means that I’m still looking out for a corporation to join. My forum post doesn’t seem to be too popular. I guess nobody wants someone with +30m SP but absolutely no idea what he’s doing.
I will need myself a babysitter in W-space.
Stay tuned o7
I did it. I made a ‘Looking for Corporation’ post. The only problem now is, that I haven’t posted it yet.
I can’t decide on whether I want to have my main (this guy) or the alt that I have in RvB in a WH.
Logic dictates that I should do it with my main character. He’s most skilled, almost able to jump into strategic cruisers and in general the character I like playing with the most.
But will this fact not change when I am no longer able to go out without the “fear” to lose a ship.
Because this is what this is all about, I’m afraid of the life beyond High-sec, I never even went anywhere but high sec for longer than a few hours.
Fear of the unknown is something most humans deal with, and I’m dealing with it in a game.
I’m trying to do what most people in high sec are afraid of doing, and that’s taking that step towards the other life. Where danger lurks everywhere. Or at least that’s what us carebears think it does. Maybe I’m exaggerating, maybe I’m not.
But I have to make a decision
