Working Title

I Never Said I Was Quitting Eve

An indefinite break is a very ambiguous term. It could mean three days. It could mean three months. It could mean forever. In this specific case, my break lasted around six to eight weeks. A few days ago I did start actively playing Eve-Online again. Apparently most of these people who saw me online don't understand what the term "indefinite break" means:
[ 15:15:37 ] Laedy > u quitting eve? 

[ 19:48:47 ] Calculon > Weren't you quitting, Spectre?


[ 05:31:08 ] Jaxxon Voers > wtf?
[ 05:31:30 ] Jaxxon Voers > i thought you quit eve to go play Maple Story 

[ 20:10:47 ] Avan Sercedos > spectre I thought you quit


[ 20:13:09 ] Lila Morgan > Spectre

[ 20:13:13 ] Lila Morgan > thought you quit 

[ 03:09:28 ] Baeryn > Spec, I hear you're quitting EVE

[ 03:09:43 ] Baeryn > Me an' Mynx will split your stuff 50/50

[ 03:09:51 ] Spectre3353 > im not quitting nothing 

[ 03:16:53 ] Ragnar Remis > hey spect

[ 03:16:59 ] Spectre3353 > dont 
[ 03:17:00 ] Spectre3353 > dont say it

[ 03:17:10 ] Spectre3353 > if i hear it one more fucking time im going to kill someone 
[ 03:17:20 ] Kyle Langdon > i heard you were quitting


[ 03:29:45 ] Spectre3353 > you guys remember the first time i quit eve

[ 03:29:52 ] Spectre3353 > and then i started playing again 2 days later 
[ 03:29:54 ] Lana Torrin > why do i get the feeling i have missed something important...


[ 02:26:45 ] 00sage00 > wtf spectre is back

[ 02:27:24 ] Jorshan > wasn't he quitting eve or something? 
[ 02:35:16 ] Casiella Truza > Dude needed an ego stroke, evidently ;)
I hate you all.

Minmitar Ships

While I was inactivate, I left my toon training towards Tech II Medium Projectile weapons and Minimitar cruisers. While I still have a couple weeks left to finish Minmitar Cruiser V, I have completed the weapons training and have purchased several Minnie ships including the Rupture, Stabber and Hurricane. My first tries at fitting them:

For the Rupture, I wasn't sure whether to fit falloff rigs or trimarks but since tracking enhancers are so buff these days, I opted for the trimarks:
[Rupture, Tank]
Damage Control II
1600mm Reinforced Rolled Tungsten Plates I
Tracking Enhancer II
Gyrostabilizer II
Gyrostabilizer II

10MN MicroWarpdrive I
J5b Phased Prototype Warp Scrambler I
Stasis Webifier II

Small Unstable Power Fluctuator I
Small Diminishing Power System Drain I
220mm Vulcan AutoCannon II, Barrage M
220mm Vulcan AutoCannon II, Barrage M
220mm Vulcan AutoCannon II, Barrage M
220mm Vulcan AutoCannon II, Barrage M

Medium Trimark Armor Pump I
Medium Trimark Armor Pump I
Medium Trimark Armor Pump I

Warrior II x4
Valkyrie II x1
For the Stabber, I can't help but laugh every single time I look at it. Which fucking game designer at Eve decided that any ship should roll with ONE light drone? Give it no drones. Give it two. But one light drone on a cruiser? Why even bother? Anyhow, I went with a pretty standard fit although I am kind of wishing I had fit falloff rigs here as well instead of rigs that barely buff an already thin shield tank:
[Stabber, Nano]
Tracking Enhancer II
Gyrostabilizer II
Nanofiber Internal Structure II

10MN MicroWarpdrive I
Warp Disruptor II
Large Shield Extender II

220mm Vulcan AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet Fusion M
220mm Vulcan AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet Fusion M
220mm Vulcan AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet Fusion M
220mm Vulcan AutoCannon II, Republic Fleet Fusion M
50W Infectious Power System Malfunction
Small Diminishing Power System Drain I

Medium Anti-EM Screen Reinforcer I
Medium Core Defence Field Extender I
Medium Core Defence Field Extender I

Warrior II x1
Lastly, we have the ship that I am really excited about. Battlecruisers are one of my favorite ship classes and I now have access to at least competently fly all except the Drake. I bought two Hurricanes to try out, one as a nano-speed ship and the other as a plated-tanked ship:
[Hurricane, Nano]
Damage Control II
Tracking Enhancer II
Gyrostabilizer II
Gyrostabilizer II
Nanofiber Internal Structure II
Nanofiber Internal Structure II

10MN MicroWarpdrive I
Warp Disruptor II

I have not gotten a chance to fly these ships much yet but so far I like them. I even pulled a Python(tm) on someone today and managed to try out the Stabber in a T1 cruiser fight to the death. It was fun but for some reason afterward, my opponent yelled at me in local chat:
[18:25:27] Spectre3353 > shlen?
[18:25:33] shlen > сек
[18:27:06] shlen > what do tou want?
[18:27:24] Spectre3353 > just to talk
[18:27:27] Spectre3353 > how has your day been?
[18:31:37] Spectre3353 > gf
[18:31:49] shlen > пидорас
[18:32:39] shlen > whore)))

[18:33:32] shlen > буржуи вы пидоры хлеще чем все остальные))))
[18:34:03] shlen > Spectre3353 это тебя шлюха касается
[18:34:40] shlen > Spectre3353 че притих говнодав
[18:35:12] Spectre3353 > does anyone know what he is saying
[18:35:18] Spectre3353 > babelfish translations dont really work too well
[18:35:22] CpHarding > nope
[18:36:33] shlen > пидор какой нахуй транслейтет ))))) шлюха как ебли вас так и будем
[18:36:44] RedHairedDude > ban?
[18:38:34] shlen > я те в жбан ща ебну бан ему блять козлина ебаная! ебло офф сделай дырка
[18:40:06] shlen > ладно хуесосы буржуйные будет время вас еще выебать
[18:40:54] LLIycmpuk > ыыы
I'm not honestly sure what any of that means but based on his gestures and demeanor I believe he was thanking me for relieving him of his ship and it's contents and then inviting me for tea tomorrow. If anyone knows Russian, please feel free to clue me in on exactly what all that text translates to and what time the tea is occurring. Thanks!

He is calling you a fag, whore, something about goat fucking, and a cocksucker.

Sounds good to me!

I love my stabber <3

But yeah 1 drone is sort of bad joke :(

Clinton said...

Welcome back! I gave you until the end of February too.. damn

Cozmik R5 said...

Yay, he's back!

That means BOZO needs to give you your stuff back, right? :)

I haven't flown a Stabber in a while... maybe I should!

Yargok said...

WB Spex!

I too have started flying the minnie fleet.. Setups seem pretty similar to yours.

Prefer the nanoshield Cane so far.

Oh and with Arties, the cane is sexy for some fleet action!
100km BOOM!

00sage00 said...

I fit my minnie ships almost identically, except for the armor cane.

I use a third gyro instead of tracking enhancer because you are already fighting at in-your-face range. And a cap booster is unnecessary on a passive tanked ship with cap-free weapons (I don't fit a cap booster on the Harbinger either). Anything fast enough to require constant MWDing will be dead quickly. Or you could add a second web if you're worried they'll be that fast. Or if you plan on trying to MWD circles around targets, just fit a tracking disruptor and switch the neuts to medium sized.

I thought you quit EVE.

Wensley said...

Pah, my "did you get confused and think your pod was an elf" comment (or whatever it was) didn't make the list. Or is that because I give you shit for being an elf rather than for quitting.

Laedy said...

Hey, I also once quit EVE. I lasted about 2-3 weeks. And I gave away most of my stuff too!

btw his nick "shlen" has very similar pronunciation with russian term for dick/cock.
i was trying to be closer to Russian meaning than to appropriate expressions in english language - it seems you really got him

Spectre said...

Sage: I guess I'm still of that mindset that my guns use cap after flying Gallente/Amarr for so long. I'll have to come up with something better than the cap booster to fit.

Wens: I just did a search for the word "quit" in my logs for the past week which is probably why I missed that quote :/ It was a good one though.

Anon/Name: Thanks for the translations. I am disappointed that he wasn't discussing tea but was instead calling me a capitalist cocksucker.
