I went on an RvB ganked roam the other day. There were about 121 people in the fleet. I had tons of fun, despite me not having done much.
When I logged onto my RvB alt the first thing I did was ask in the corp channel if something fun was going on, and I got linked to the fleet. After joining it, joining the channel and setting up my mumble I was ready. Ready to do 22 jumps to the staging system. I wasn’t quite in the right fit, seeing that I was just flying one of my Kestrels, like I always do, and it was an Assault Frigate fleet but, I’m a tackle, I was good enough.
After arriving 10 minutes before we’d go out to Null-sec I had my first “woah” thought going. It’s been ages since I was in a big fleet so when you warp to the commander and see about 100 people fly around, you’ll look at it for a few minutes and just take in the view.
The mumble channel was quite fun too, the fleet was made up of Reds and Blues and there was some friendly banter and shots given to each other. Which made me laugh so hard that my sister came to ask me what was so funny. I couldn’t quite explain it to her.
A few jumps into null one of the scouts told us that there was a Talos and some other ships on the gate, so we all jumped in at the same time. Causing a spike in local and probably making them scared. I wasn’t on any of the kills due to TDI. By the time I had the Talos targeted he blew up.
But no worries, it was fun.
About 20 minutes later we flew into a bomber, who had just dropped a bomb. I tried my best to burn away from it, but that didn’t quite work out. My kestrel blew up, and seeing that we were in Curse, I had nothing close by to get into. But it was getting late and I had to go to work so I called it then and there.
Despite not seeing much action myself, I had a lot of fun in that roam, mostly due to fleet chat, mumble, and the local chat spikes.
When the FC tells everyone to say hi in local, and everyone does, it’s good enough to bring a smile to your face.
Stay tuned! o7
I started a new job today, so I have a lot less online time than I did in the past couple of weeks. Which means that I won’t be able to update my inventions as much as I’d like to. Unless of course I sneak into the game on my work laptop but, I’m not going to do that just yet.
The one thing I did forget to do yesterday was to update my skill queue, and while I was at work I couldn’t help but think of something that I had forgotten, but I just couldn’t think of what it was. Until I got back home after going to the gym first.. I had forgotten to update the skill queue of my RvB character. The horror!
I had to rush upstairs, turn on my computer and quickly update, I’m sure some of you know what this is like, not having your queue running feels a lot like having wasted the precious, precious time to skill up. Luckily I only missed about an hour, so it wasn’t that bad. But it’s been a while since a game basically compelled me to log in just to update something.
I wonder if the people who do station trades have a thought process like that too. I wonder if they think about logging in to update their orders, or if they just don’t really care much if they miss it a few hours, or even days.
I’ve been looking into the markets a bit to maybe do some station trading, too bad that I can’t decide on what product I might go for. I could go to a mission hub and do it with ammo, but what use would that be when I’m also supplying the ammo there.
Not that that’s what I’m making, no sir, not at all
There are still so many things I want to try out, and there’s so little time. I’d love to try my hand at wormholes, but maybe I should try out exploration in general first… Yeah, I’ll do that, wormholes are probably way out of my league.
I found something! Too bad it wasn’t worth the time finding it
ps: I just noticed that Merchant Monarchy put up a post about my blog. People are actually reading what I’m writing, yay! Thanks!
I spend most of my time on my industrial character updating invention jobs. Most of them run for approximately one hour, so every hour or two I update them. It takes time, but it’s worth it. Too bad I’m starting a new job monday so I won’t be invention as much as I usually do. Good thing I still have a whole bunch of T2 Blueprints ready to manufacture.
If only I wasn’t so damn lazy, because I still haven’t gotten all of the materials to create most of them. I should do something about that, later.
I did look into ship building, I had a whole bunch of procurer bpcs lying around my hangar so I decided to invent a few.. With 1 out of 10 becoming a Skiff blueprint, I’m not sure if it’s going to be worth it to try and make more of them.. Maybe if I run out of the other copies.
I wanted to do some pvp in RvB today but unfortunately it meant me taking 24 jumps, and I’m in a pretty lazy mood today. Well almost every day, who wants to take 24 jumps, come on!
I might try harder tomorrow, we’ll see
And this is what I do in GTA V looking at the view
I think it’s safe to say that at least 90% of the people out there love explosions. Or at least looking at them. So what better way to say ‘I love you’ than by showering them with rockets/missiles.
My newly subscribed character Lctus Aivo has just joined Blue Republic and seeing that I haven’t played with rockets in a long time, I decided to stock up on a few of them. I based myself at blue base and have about 50 kestrels waiting to be blown up, or do some blowing up themselves. Why a kestrel? Well why not? They’re cheap, easy to fit and can still pack a punch if flown correctly.
Or so I’ve been told seeing that I have no idea what ‘flying correctly’ actually means. I got a fit of a friend of mine, which we tried out a few weeks ago, me in a punisher and him in a kestrel and holy crap that Kestrel was fast! In the end the Punisher did win but it barely survived. I think that at the time I had about 10% hull left, so it was only a matter of who would be firing the last shot.
I joined RvB together with a corp mate who bought a new character just for that. I’m looking forward to flying with him and the other RvBers.
Now to go and blow things up
I flew the Kestrel tonight in a fleet along with other Blue’s, I loved it. Despite not actually packing a punch, the kestrel is still pretty fast, and seeing that I fit it with a Microwarp drive, scrambler and webber, I helped a bit in keeping the other fleet’s ships from fleeing. Or at least I like to think that I did.
First fleet: Big succes!
