This weekend was probably the worst stretch of failure I have experienced since I graduated from the academy. Six lost ships including three Incursus's, two Vexor's and an Ishkur assault frigate, all fully loaded with modules and drones and ammo. All I have to show for these losses is a single Thorax kill. To make these losses sting even worse, I was podded two different times after two of these encounters. I have become extremely frustrated with the unresponsiveness and lag of my pod controls once my ship is destroyed. I certainly need to come up with some method of ensuring that I can escape with my pod intact if I get destroyed. The estimated value of these ships and their modules and the lost implants is well over 50 million isk. I am not quite poor but it is still a tough pill to swallow.
At least one positive thing to report, eve-pirate.com, a well known and respected pirate publication has published one of my stories! This is only the beginning... it is obvious that at this rate I will soon be rich and famous.
