Remove You

CrazyKinux has been doing the blog banter thing now for several months but I have never posted a response to any of the topics before. Why are things different this time around?

(1) I really want to win a keychain because that sort of thing would make my day. It is really about time I replaced my eight year old "Hello Kitty" one anyhow as it's nerdy and a keychain about an internet spaceship video game would be considerably more mature.

(2) I immediately knew exactly how I wanted to respond to the topic and I am very opinionated about this one.

The topic for this edition of Eve Blog Banter is:

"Last month Ga'len asked us which game mechanic we would most like to see added to EVE. This month Keith "WebMandrill" Nielson proposes to reverse the question and ask what may be a controversial question: Which game mechanic would you most like to see removed completely from EVE and why? I can see this getting quite heated so lets keep it civil eh?"

What game mechanic would I want removed from Eve? That's easy! So without further introduction:

Fuck All Of You

"Keep it civil?" Come on now. The mechanic that needs to be removed completely from Eve is the ability to login. The thing that would make Eve step off the precipice from "Good" to "Perfect" would be if CCP finally got the balls to removed players from the game. Just for a minute imagine how this would affect the landscape of the universe:

(1) Peace and Quiet:

Everywhere I fly and everywhere I go I hear idiots. Babbling over every communications channel like a bunch of four year olds. Whining about one thing, spouting gibberish about another. My brain can't take it anymore and I have to imagine that the poor space itself can't handle it either. We all need a break from it, a permanent one. I got your back Siseide, Dantumi, D7-ZAC, Malkanen and J155545. If we could only prevent people from existing in the universe you would be able to continue on in your peaceful and noble existance. Soon we will be alone and the only voices I hear will be the ones in my head telling me that I have to murder my neighbors dog ASAP because he is actually the Devil in disguise. I'll get you Spot... just you wait.

(2) Pollution and Litter:

You people just don't care about the beauty and nature surrounding you. I land in one system just to see ten drones abandoned in a corner. I jump into another to find twenty-five jettisoned cans floating next to a gate. Debris from shipwrecks, abandoned stations and even frozen corpses. Let us not even begin to talk about the CO2 emissions from all the ships! Does no one have any concern about how we are raping the vacuum that nature has spent billions of years cultivating to be totally devoid of any matter? Every time you fill that vacuum with anything you are completely throwing off the balance and ecosystem that had been thriving and refining itself for longer than you can even begin to fathom. Way to be a bunch of inconsiderate assclowns. The universe would only be better off without you leaving your droppings everywhere you go.

(3) Real Life Productivity:

Let's stop with the role-playing for a minute here (because I normally RP hardkore and to the max when I blog). Do you all realize that Eve is a game? Tens of thousands online at once with some of us spending way too much time online doing something that means nothing. A lot of us even spent a good portion of offline time reading stupid ass forums and posting stupid ass blogs about stupid ass video game shit. Imagine if you spent all of that time doing something productive? If we had pooled our time together into something useful we probably could have cured Cancer, resolved worldwide poverty and traveled to Neptune to meet the super-sexy-all-female-race-of-super-aliens-with-four-breasts. Right now people are suffering and a number of us are missing out on alien sex because we ignore real life responsibilities and problems to fly internet spaceships. Disgusting and embarassing. You should be ashamed.


It is hard to imagine that anyone is going to come up with a better blog banter submission than this so please just contact me in game or via email when you need my information for the Hoodie. If possible I would really prefer the keychain as well but that is a discussion we can have more in depth in a week.

People (and Eve players specifically) are a virus. We are a plague. We destroy and devalue everything we touch just by existing and removing the ability for us to login would make the universe of Eve into an Utopia of incredible proportions. Well at least until CCP ran out of money thanks to lack of subscriptions. To that I say... stimulus package?

Standing On The Shoulders Of Girls

Dwarfs standing on the shoulders of giants (Latin: nanos gigantum humeris insidentes) is a Western metaphor meaning "One who develops future intellectual pursuits by understanding the research and works created by notable thinkers of the past."
In this case the giants just happen to have boobs. Our friends over in the Hellcats corporation have come into the spotlight thanks to a recent IC report. As a result, the universe has taken notice of a group that has transcended the social norms to excel at the most hardcore of lifestyles. It is thanks to this success that I have decided to stand on their shoulders and follow their example by making my corporation a bastion of encouragement and success to an often maligned and pushed-around minority of peoples. The Hellcats have made it okay in the public eye for a female pilot to engage in the same activities and random acts of violence as anyone else... by why stop with just girls? For the entire existence of existence, one group has had it worse than any other:


So without further introduction, I bring you The Python Cartel, the first corporation exclusively for men. No further women will be allowed and all current female members will be expelled (Kerblamo you will be removed by the close of business today). In addition, I have drafted up a new logo that personifies our corporation and spaceship flying males everywhere:

A picture (or in this case a logo) is worth a thousand words. Soak it in men because the light at the end of the tunnel has finally appeared. We are here for you.

Several months back I decided on a skill plan that would give me access to Gallente Heavy Assault Cruisers along with Heavy Tech II drones. The ultimate end goal here was to be able to fly one of the most powerful and versatile (and expensive) cruisers in the game, the Ishtar. A few weeks ago I completed a majority of that training and purchased my first HAC. Before we get into how it fared up until getting destroyed today, let's look at the different ways I was originally considering fitting this ship:

(1) Active Armor Tanked Ishtar

Able to tank close to 400 DPS normally and well over 500 DPS overheated. 520 DPS with drones and light blasters factored in. The downside? You are slow and rely on getting in close to lock people down for the Ogre's to be able to hit. You'll easily be popped by a blob and you are extremely capacitor dependant:
[Ishtar, Active Tank]
Damage Control II
Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane II
Armor Explosive Hardener II
Medium Armor Repairer II
Medium Armor Repairer II

Y-T8 Overcharged Hydrocarbon I Microwarpdrive
Initiated Harmonic Warp Scrambler I
X5 Prototype I Engine Enervator
F-90 Positional Sensor Subroutines, Scan Resolution
Medium Electrochemical Capacitor Booster I, Cap Booster 400

Light Neutron Blaster II, Caldari Navy Antimatter Charge S
Light Neutron Blaster II, Caldari Navy Antimatter Charge S
Light Neutron Blaster II, Caldari Navy Antimatter Charge S
50W Infectious Power System Malfunction
[empty high slot]

Nanobot Accelerator I
Auxiliary Nano Pump I

Ogre II x5

(2) Buffer Armor Tanked Ishtar

Same DPS as the active tanked fit but not reliant on cap or armor repairers to stay alive. Nearly 10,000 Armor HP and about 60,000 EHP on the entire ship. Throw on some slaves and you'll take a massive beating before anything takes you down. Once again, the big downside is that you have to risk a 150 million ISK ship at point blank range where it is extremely vulnerable (probably even more than that after you factor in the price of Trimarks).
[Ishtar, Armor Buffer]
Damage Control II
1600mm Reinforced Rolled Tungsten Plates I
Armor Explosive Hardener II
Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane II
Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane II

Y-T8 Overcharged Hydrocarbon I Microwarpdrive
J5b Phased Prototype Warp Scrambler I

50W Infectious Power System Malfunction
[empty high slot]

Trimark Armor Pump I

Ogre II x5

(3) Buffer Shield Tanked Nano Ishtar

Now we're talking. A ship that goes well over 2000 m/s before overheating the MWD with a good amount of agility and a big shield buffer that gives about a 32,000 EHP cushion if anything does catch you. 341 DPS just out of Berserker II's and 483 DPS if you're in a position to add in blaster DPS. Berserker's I have found to be a much better choice than Ogre's for this fit as you are more concerned with avoiding web/scram range and you need drones that can catch your targets without any outside EWAR help. This fit is also a little bit less expensive as your lows are filled with cheap modules and the rigs are pretty cheap unless you decide to upgrade to shield extender rigs. Most importantly, this fit is very survivable compared to the two above which is vital when flying around blobby lowsec in a ship that costs as much as 8 fully fit Vexor's would. In case you couldn't tell by my tone and enthusiasm, this is how I decided to fit my first Ishtar:
[Ishtar, Nano]
Damage Control II
Overdrive Injector System II
Overdrive Injector System II
Nanofiber Internal Structure II
Nanofiber Internal Structure II

Y-T8 Overcharged Hydrocarbon I Microwarpdrive

Anti-EM Screen Reinforcer I

Berserker II x5

How Did It Do?

Pretty well. If there is one ship out there that is very, very well suited for taking on a poorly coordinated gang of larger ships solo, it is the Ishtar. In one of its early fights, I was able to easily gank two very poorly fit battlecruisers while some of their friends ran and various other onlookers warped in and out of the belt I was in. It wasn't a significant test but it gave me a feel for how my ship handled during actual combat.

In it's final encounter, I was able to kill a Retribution, Thorax, Brutix and almost a Blackbird and Pilgrim before finally getting caught into web/scram/neut range and then pummelled by a Drake and Armageddon. Their gang was less than coordinated and pulled the whole ninja movie thing on me (warping into the engagement area one at a time instead of together) but it was still impressive to see how quickly my drones were able to dispatch my targets while I was safely flying circles around my targets at a speed they could not catch. I was pleased to see that my Berserker's were even easily able to catch a Thorax flying at 1000 m/s which previously my Ogre's could not.

I would have to say that the most significant strength of the Ishtar is its ability to almost completely separate your ship from its DPS. Sure you can do this in other drone boats but most other drones boats either don't have this level of DPS out of drones (400-500 DPS out of heavies which a Vexor/Arbitrator/Ishkur can't even come close to) and this level of manuverability (Dominix and Myrmidon can field all or some heavy drones but the ships do not nano well). In an Ishtar, you can unleash your drones upon a target and then worry almost exclusively about your own survival and evasive manuvering without having to consider the tracking or optimal range of weapons on your ship (except of course if you're the only person with a point in which case you want to stay in disruptor range). The downside is the fact that your drones can be destroyed, the fact that they have travel time and the cost associated with flying a popular T2 cruiser.

What Will I Change With The Next One?

There are certainly some things I could do to further increase the effectiveness of this ship.

(1) Train Sentry Drones

The travel time of drones, especially heavies, is a significant downside to how I am currently flying. Having the option to drop a set of sentries to snipe or do instant damage to a target would be a big plus. Whether or not I want to spend the weeks it will take to use tech II sentries is another question entirely.

(2) Train Heavy Assault Ships to level V

Again, a decently long chunk of training but the increased control range and more importantly increased drone bay size would just add to the versatility that is already offered. Will also be beneficial when I finally train over to fly the HAC's that other races offer (Zealot and Vagabond look delicious).

(3) Stop Being Cheap...

...and put on some shield extender rigs. Would give a slightly bigger boost to my tank at the expense of ISK. Maybe.

How To Abuse Newbs

I know I talk a big game. Occasionally I might get a solid kill that makes me look like I have some talent but more often than not I get my ass kicked by anything that can fight back. As a result, I have made a serious career out of determining who cannot fight back and taking advantage of their weakness. It might not be all that glorious but holy fucking balls is it fun. There are a lot of newbs out there. A lot. So I figure it's only fair and couldn't hurt to share how you too could be taking advantage of and viciously abusing pilots who are new and haven't got a clue:

Step 1 - Find an area of lowsec space where lots of stupid newbs show up. This is generally going to be a lowsec system that is close to busy highsec and probably close to a factions starting area. I have had great success in the general area around Minmitar/Gallente space near Amamake as well as some areas of Caldari space.

Step 2 - Find some targets. Use local chat and use your scanner. Find the pilots that appear to be young or still in an NPC corporation by right clicking their names in local chat and selecting "show info". Look around on your scanner for pilots who have not yet renamed their ships (ie: "Dickwad's Vexor", "Jizzeater's Bantam", etc). Look for ships that may be missioning that only have Tech I drones and less than five drones deployed. Use all the information on scan and in local to your advantage to determine who is a clueless newb and who actually has their shit together.

Step 3 - Abuse game mechanics and act like a complete scumbag in order to get the target into a compromising position. I usually start off by inviting the person to fleet. The worst thing a person can do is accept this invite as you now have the ability to warp directly to them wherever they are at as well as tell their ship where to warp. If you already know a target is located somewhere where you can engage such a safe spot or mission, you should be aligned towards their general area and warp to them as soon as they accept fleet. You never know when someone is going to accept an invite and then leave three seconds later so take advantage immediately before you lose your chance.

If the person is in a location where you cannot engage due to sentries or you land out of scrambling range, immediately warp your squad to another location where you can engage. I usually take my targets straight to a safe spot where no other random idiots could ruin the fun. If your target is in a station, you should try to dock and determine which one and then wait outside for them. It is a great idea to have instant undock points bookmarked for each station in the areas where you hunt not only for escape purposes, but so you can instantly warp your fleeted targets as they undock before they can do anything to stop it.

Lastly, make sure you don't ignore your partners emotional needs! If someone joins your fleet and you ignore them, they are going to leave and continue what they were doing. Don't let this happen! Distract them with pillow talk about whatever you think will hold their attention long enough to not notice the certain death creeping up. Alternatively from obtaining their attention through trying to find something in common, you can try to confuse them for a few minutes by using very bad english and discussing totally nonsensical subjects like ice cream, clowns, donkeys and snow globes.

Step 4 - KILL IT DEAD. You have gone through all the steps above and tricked someone into either letting you locate them or into letting you warp them to a safe spot. Now is the fun part! Blow up their crappily fit missioning Osprey and rejoice for you have successfully abused a newb! Nice job! Soak in the almost guaranteed tears and go look for a new target!

[22:20:45] Carrion Crow > wow you are so clever
[22:21:03] Carrion Crow > do you think i can be like you one day?
[22:21:14] Spectre3353 > its going to take a lot of hard work, dedication, and a gigantic penis
[22:21:15] Spectre3353 > but sure

[02:14:54] D'anima > lol that was quite the waste of your ammo and time 
[02:16:13] Spectre3353 > hi

[02:16:15] Spectre3353 > no it wasnt

[02:16:19] Spectre3353 > my ammo is purchased so i can have fun

[02:16:22] Spectre3353 > killing you = fun

[02:16:27] D'anima > lol

[02:16:39] D'anima > glad you enjoy yourself :D didn't set me back at all

[13:48:57] Spectre3353 > can you leave fleet and join mine for a minute so i can link you some stuff? 
[13:49:51] Diluded > one sec

[13:49:54] Spectre3353 > sure

[13:50:36] Diluded > done
[13:50:40] Diluded > ive left fleet

Additional Notes - Never say "No one would ever fall for this!" to yourself. If you can think of some way to trick someone into exposing themselves, chances are that it will work on some idiot at some point. No matter where someone is, no matter what someone is doing, do not be afraid to at the very least open a conversation and try to convince them that you have some awesome modules to trade to them over in that nearby lowsec system. Make stuff up. Lie out your ass. Act like a complete and utterly uncivilized dirtbag if you have to. Just know that a positive attitude and pretending to be a nice guy will get you some free kills and occasionally even make you a few bucks and that is what Eve is all about.

What It Takes To Kill A Taranis

We gathered our ships at the entrance to lawless space. Funny how we have spent so much time trying to circumvent the law in empire but we never really headed out into regions that they did not control to try and practice our craft. Taranis, Nemesis, Ishkur, Sabre, Tristan, Crusader and Stilletto. With a small, fast gang of frigates that hopefully would not garner too much attention or be easily caught, we jumped into nullsec and began our trip. We caught a few ships and lost one of our own but in general the run was quiet. The hours crept by. Syndicate, Outer Ring, Cloud Ring, Fade, Deklein, Branch, Venal and then finally Tribute. We must have done a hundred jumps and my eyes were blurry and bloodshot. "This place sucks" I remember thinking. The lack of sentries made our frigates more effective but what does it matter if there is no one around?

As we moved into the Morsus Mihi controlled system of D7-ZAC I spotted a heavy interdictor on the gate. I tackled the Phobos and the rest of my gang jumped in to beat on his armor as long as we could before he decided to jump. I checked my scanner for potential help but all I saw was ships that couldn't possibly do us any harm. Devoter, Flycatcher... Erebus? It isn't every day you see a titan on scan and I assumed it must be at a POS nearby until I saw it arrive only kilometers away. A titan? On my overview? I watched as my gangmates moved themselves into position to flee and began to warp but I froze for a few seconds, gaping at the mechanical monstronsity. It was so huge, and... and glowing orange? I had only a few more moments to sit back and realize my mistake as the discharge was finalized. My Taranis was vaporized. The rest of my fleet had been smart enough to warp out but I had been too dumbfounded by the situation and paid the price...

Your Blog Sucks

I chose that title because it is more succinct than "Please Stop Spamming The Interwebs With Your Boring Crap Because It Takes Traffic and Attention Away From the Truly Good Blogs". Yea that's right, you heard me. The guy who has spammed the net with dozens and dozens of blog posts about blowing up internet spaceships over the past year is calling out all the other Eve bloggers for spamming the web with useless drivel of low quality. Here is a recent snippet from CrazyKinux that provides some insight as to why I feel the need to express myself this way:
CrazyKinux's Musing by CrazyKinux:
You read that right, FIVE HUNDRED PLUS blogs! The actual total is 535, but since some of the blogs aren't active anymore, I'm not gonna be fussy with the actual headcount.
Over 500 blogs based partially or solely around Eve-Online are in existence. Do five-hundred people even play Eve? Maybe, but I can tell you for damn sure that there aren't that many good writers or people with interesting stories in Eve to justify that many blogs. Let's take a look at some of the stuff that people are creating blogs for because they just absolutely have to share:
Disproportionate Reality by Drakan290:

I started out waking up really late, thanks to a failed windsurfing expedition yesterday… I couldn’t get it up (that’s what SHE said), nor could I move forward, every time I’d get on the board with the sail, I’d go straight into the wind until I fell over… Yet, in 8th grade, I was a windsurfing natural; I could just get on the board and go… I guess all that growing up and weight additions really got to me.
Wait... what? That... that's what she said? Maybe this is just a joke and he's getting to the part about explosions and lasers soon:
Disproportionate Reality by Drakan290 (cont):
After about 5 minutes of probing, I finally pinpoint the site, a highsec LADAR site without any clouds – basically a LADAR mining site with RADAR containers… And this is where it gets interesting. I go in to scout out the site cloaked, fully expecting a decent amount of force and to be uncloaked, but not only that, I expected with the 3 other PvEers in local, it would be run. Seems my pinpointing skills, elite frigate and gravity capacitor rigs really came in handy, because the site was too hard for the other three guys to pin down, and I had it all to myself.
That's the interesting part? You probed down a LADAR site? Oh god, my brain. It's melting, I can feel it and it hurts. But wait, I'm sure the PvP is coming. I know there will be battleships and drones and hot chicks in bikinis perched on a yellow Corvette. It's all building up to something that will blow our mind:
Disproportionate Reality by Drakan290 (cont):
I killed the Bulkers and reminded myself I’d need another blockade runner to move the minerals back up to Octanneve for sale, if it did indeed spawn something of value, but it didn’t. All I got was a Tritanium and Pyerite drop. With such a boring day, no gatecamps, no unsolicited NO TR roaming gangs, I called it a night and dropped off of EvE.
That's the end? That? It's like I just went to dinner with a fat chick, paid for her meal and her movie and then she refused to sit on my weener when we got home. Why did you make me sit through that horrible date and then not even give me some fat chick sex at the end, drakan209? You think the internet and blogging is a joke? You just don't do stuff like that to people and expect to get away with it. I will remember this and one day, you will pay.

Oh well, let's move on. Surely there are more quality blogs out there that can make up for that catastrophe. Let's look at the list and choose one at random. Coke and Whores, eh? How could a blog with that name possibly fail. Here is a snippet from the first post:
Coke and Whores by leboe:

Welcome to Podlogs. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!
What a tease. You get linked to from CrazyKinux, you name your blog something that awesome and then you don't even make any posts? When I check back in a week there had better be at least one new post about coke, whores or preferably both. Oh, and I don't mean the soda-pop type of Coke.

Let's try one more random blog before we totally give up on the universe of Eve blogs:
EveNewb by Spectre:

The fundraising contest will last one week and one week ONLY. Simply transfer as much ISK as you would like in game to 'Spectre3353'. Put 'Pirate Fundraiser' as the subject/reason and you will have done a great deed for a great group of people!
I don't even know how to describe how sad and ridiculous this is. Your blog isn't popular and you aren't a talented writer. What makes you think that you're worthy of free video game money? Why don't you get off your ass and play the damn game yourself and maybe you'll have some ISK to spend. People who create posts like this that beg for money make me want to punch kittens. Well honestly, punching kittens sounds fun regardless of the situation but that is completely besides the point.

This brings me to my point: You don't have to have a blog. Does it seem like everyone else's blog is better than yours? That's probably because they are. We don't need a blog about how you just ran a level 2 mission and we don't give a shit about what kind of dumplings you were eating during that fleet mining op. If you don't have something worthwhile and interesting to post, then don't. Stop spamming this community with your awful crap just because you think you have something significant to provide because believe me, you most likely do not. For every Wensley, Mynxee, Roc and Kirith, there are a hundred Drakans, Leboes and Spectres clogging up the bandwidth and covering all the quality with their loud, obnoxious and useless crap.

Please my friends, this is your chance to help save the Eve Blogging community...
