Title: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE
Post by: Furiously on January 07, 2014, 03:42:07 AM
Just wanted to vent. I cleared a few belts last night for a change of pace. I sit cloaked AFK in a belt to go grab some water. Come back right as a Dread Gurista spawn pops!

I kill all the escorts, and watch the Dread warp off. I forgot you had to kill them first.

Let me know when you finally find your first officer spawn and it kicks the shit out of you.

Shit is real in null sec these days. Even the belt rats are scramming and jamming and webbing. I am sure one of these days I will lose all my drones and have to sit in a fucking anomaly or belt until someone can come and kill the Dire Gurista Shithead frigate who has me scrammed. God it is going to be embarrassing. Probably the best reason to keep my alt active!

The only way to play eve is three accounts at once. I will never believe any different.

I finally got my Buzzard for scanning and casual stuff.  Just to tool around, I've been trying to get to the Eve Gate just to see it.  Gate camped on arrival, 2 gates away.  Now sitting in a pod a customs bureau waiting for off hours.

How did you die to a gate camp in a covops?


Title: Re: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE

Sounds fishy.

See the thing about Cov Ops is that they have this Cov Ops Cloak...

I did a tour of Eve gate, the Titan wreck and a few things here and there in a hound but for some reason I can't remember, I didn't always warp gate to gate.


Title: Re: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE

I actually look forward to gate camps in my cov ops and blockade runners...breaks the monotony of the trip up!

Not warping directly to the next gate is the smart thing to do in nullsec, where bubbles are in play.  But in lowsec, there's not reason to warp around if you're in a hurry.


Title: Re: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE
Post by: WayAbvPar on January 16, 2014, 01:13:42 PM
Yeah if I jump into a system that is populated, I burn off in some random direction for a couple of minutes and then jump to zero on the gate. If the bubble still catches me, I am usually on the very edge of it. Also messes with their timing if they are looking to decloak me in the bubble (since they would normally assume I would jump right away).

Or I could just fly an inty and ignore everything  :oh_i_see:

What other good sight seeing places are there?


Title: Re: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE
Post by: Phildo on January 16, 2014, 04:10:43 PM
When you say titan wreck, is that different from Luminaire, or did they actually let players kill the NPC titan there?  Because otherwise, there's a live NPC titan there.


Title: Re: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE

It's the wreck of "Steve" - an Avatar in C9N-CC piloted by Cyvok. First one built, first one destroyed as I recollect. CCP put up a memorial to it - not the usual wreck debris but a badly damaged Avatar.


Title: Re: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE
Post by: Phildo on January 17, 2014, 07:30:46 AM
Oh yeah!  Well, there's an NPC Leviathan in Luminaire.  And is that guy still running Eve Cemetery or did he finally get tired of Goonswarm knocking it over?


Title: Re: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE

The titan in Luminaire was destroyed and the debris rained down in dust 514. Keep up.


Title: Re: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE

If a Titan rains down and no-one is there to watch it, does it make a sound?

You forgot to call me grandpa at the end of that.

Don't worry Phildo I'll always think of you as a newb.  :why_so_serious:

21 N3/PL titans down and counting in B-R today. Goons have lost 9. Something like 60k Euros in PLEX value up in smoke so far.


Title: Re: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE
Post by: Sir T on January 27, 2014, 11:43:41 PM
There's something like 11k viewers watching a Twitch stream of the battle apparently. Gotta love that 1 fps action.


Title: Re: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE
Post by: Comstar on January 28, 2014, 03:54:05 AM
90 or so Titan's reported down, 2-1 favour of CFC+Russians over PL+N3.

I'm very close to wanting to come back. Dammit.

I was sitting there watching jabber pings and feeling the same way.

Quote from: directorbot
Death toll: CCP have stated that a database query shows that we killed 59 titans and lost 16.

That is INSANE.

CCP trolls their own players....

Good to see the inevitable CFC / PL super-cap rumble kick off in such a big way.


Title: Re: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE
Post by: Kitsune on January 29, 2014, 03:19:54 PM
I'd heard that CFC lost the big capital engagement with PL last week, is this fight a different one?


Title: Re: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE
Post by: Phildo on January 29, 2014, 03:27:15 PM
Yes.  You're probably thinking of the one where the CFC/RUS fleet all got black-screened and massacred.


Title: Re: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE

Whatever is going on, it made the front page of yahoo.com and Boston.com. That's notable.


Title: Re: Sometimes (usually) I hate EVE

It was quite fun reading the Kugutsumen write up, probably more fun than being there, but a massive titan brawl (90 titans, 400k USD$ worth of value sort of numbers) is pretty epic. The morale boost to the CFC will probably be pretty substantial unless they manage to counter-welp.

Bought my first Plex (in game)and funded my alt account for a month last night. I have my EVE big boy pants on now!


Thinking about buying a 6 pack of Plexs while they are on sale.
