Sunday event, Stay Frosty FFA

The previous weekend was very busy for me. But I did manage to play a bit, mostly because I made time for one event that I was looking forward to. Namely the Stay Frosty FFA.

In general, it was ok, I didn’t have nearly as much fun as I did last time I joined in a FFA but at least I didn’t leave after an hour.

I had about 20 punishers and 20 rifters set up for this. I sent them to the nearest Hi-sec station thinking that whenever I got podded I’d ship back.
The rules of this event were quite simple, no podding, only frigates and no grouping/boosters.

But seeing as this is EvE, these rules were broken quite a lot. As a solo roamer it was nearly impossible to get any KB’s. And that was extremely frustrating to me. I doubt I would have been as frustrated as I was if I had not seen as many groups as I did.

Warping in an asteroid belt, thinking you’d get a few shots at multiple people, and immediately being scrambled, webbed and painted by Brave Newbie people was not that bad the first time. But it happened too many times to be called a coincidence.
They were there to screw things over. A bit after my third death at the hands of BNI I heard about a cyno being lit.

Reach for the skies

Me, being the nosy capsuleer that I am, jumped straight to the cyno. To be greeted by a bunch of BNI Thorax’, which made me lose both my ship and pod.

No big deal, just upgrade the clone and get back to the fight.

There were a few other gangs too, and after being podded for the 6th or 7th time I decided to call it. I spent some time with my gf watching the new episode of Dracula, and afterwards joined for the last half hour of the FFA.

Which was pretty fun, this was what I wanted, going from belt to belt, seeing two, three people fight and just get in there and take shots at whoever was winning. No killing blows (I checked and the last one before the end said 4 hours ago) but it was entertaining. Even did a small bit of damage to Rixx Javix’ Merlin. Yay!

I’m floating!

My killboard has been spiced up a bit. And I lost a total of 28 ships.
But if there’s one thing that I really learned in this FFA. It’s that I’m really, really bad at PvP

Stay tuned o7


I haven’t been able to spend too much time in game the past few days. I’m feeling a bit ill, which is making me dead tired, which in turn makes sure that after work, I want to do nothing but lie in my bed until the weekend arrives.

And it’s almost there! So that’s good. 

The hour or so each day I do spend in game, I spend updating my orders, my factory jobs and my skill queue’s. Although the last one is something I won’t have to watch for a while now seeing that all three of my active characters are currently training a 7 day skill.

The month hasn’t fully started yet or Aura tells me the bad news, I’m in the red. What does this mean? Well, easy, Aura (the android app) has this handy feature that checks your ISK flow each month, by counting how much you earn and spend. It’s pretty simplistic seeing that it watches your wallet, but I like watching my wallet and it helps me because then I won’t have to do it.

Since the start of the month I have spent 3.7billion ISK and made about 3Billion.. As you can imagine, those numbers should be reversed. They are a bit skewed though because they don’t count sell orders, and the negative ISK flow seems to mostly be coming from buy orders I put up. So I guess I’ll have to use jEvEAssets at the end of the month like always.

I like how all of these little apps are making my life easier, I have my spreadsheets, but at least I don’t have to put everything on there. I think I might go crazy if I had to do that.

Speaking of ISK flow.. I decided to do a good deed this month.

I’m just assuming here that most of you read EvEoGanda, if you don’t, then go have a look, it has some pretty good content.

Now after making said assumption, you should all know about the upcoming FFA. Seeing that a year or so ago (might be more, I am bad with dates) I had tons and tons of fun in an FFA made by The Tuskers, I decided to donate for this FFA.

It’s a great way for newbies to have fun in PvP without actually sacrificing ships of their own, and it’s fun for old carebear newbies like me because I can actually try my hand at PvP too and I know where to find it for once! So it’s a win win situation.

If you’re a newbie, or a vet, I urge you to join the fun and blow up some frigates. The more people the merrier.
She wants you to join too! – Rixx Javix sure makes pretty posters

And I’m sure Stay Frosty will be grateful if you help in donating a prize or two yourself.
As for now, I’m going to prepare myself for the weekend, where I’ll probably venture in a WH again in search of a kill..

Anyone taking bets on whether I’ll get killed or kill someone?

Stay tuned o7
