Readjusting To Eve


Some things have changed since I last played this game. Tier 3 battlecruisers and Ancillary Shield Boosters now exist. Ship prices have doubled. There also seems to be some serious power creep as everyone flying around in lowsec is in a fancy faction cruiser or a Tech 3 cruiser. I'm scared to even fly my Cynabal around as the cost to replace it means I probably just won't when it gets blown up sometime soon. On the upside, the Incursus is still cheap and it seems to have magically grown a 4th low slot. Someone actually tried to tell me that the Merlin and Incursus have now surpassed the Rifter as the scariest T1 frigate which sounds like absolute blasphemy. My first stab at flying the new Incursus:

[Incursus, New]
Adaptive Nano Plating II
Small Armor Repairer II
Damage Control II
Magnetic Field Stabilizer II

1MN Afterburner II
J5b Phased Prototype Warp Scrambler I
X5 Prototype Engine Enervator

Light Neutron Blaster II
Light Neutron Blaster II
Light Neutron Blaster II

Small Anti-Explosive Pump I
Small Auxiliary Nano Pump I
Small Auxiliary Nano Pump I

Hobgoblin II x1

I've been told though that I should be dual-repping for maximum tank. We'll see. Flying a blaster ship with no Magnetic Field Stabilizers seems like the type of thing a little girl would do and I'm not happy to consider it.

Mission Runners Are Cute

We tackle a Drake in a mission:

[03:47:32] Evangeline Macdowell > hey
[03:47:33] Spectre3353 > hi
[03:47:38] Spectre3353 > 100 mil and you can leave with your ship
[03:47:40] Spectre3353 > you have 30 seconds
[03:47:42] Evangeline Macdowell > cmon let me go
[03:47:47] Spectre3353 > you have 20 seconds
[03:47:50] Spectre3353 > 100 mil into my wallet
[03:48:00] Evangeline Macdowell > lol you so dumb then
[03:48:01] Spectre3353 > 10 seconds

We tackle his pod:

[03:48:18] Spectre3353 > this is a ransom for your pod
[03:48:23] Spectre3353 > you have 30 seconds to pay me 100 million isk
[03:48:24] Spectre3353 > 30 seconds
[03:48:37] Spectre3353 > 15 seconds
[03:48:54] Spectre3353 > 5 seconds
[03:49:01] Evangeline Macdowell > lol my pod isnt even woth 10
[03:49:59] Evangeline Macdowell > sorry, you wasted time on me
[03:50:14] Spectre3353 > killing you is not a waste of time
[03:50:20] Spectre3353 > it makes me feel happy
[03:50:30] Evangeline Macdowell > but you made virtually no profit
[03:50:42] Evangeline Macdowell > I can understand the reason for ransom
[03:50:51] Spectre3353 > because profit is only secondary
[03:50:59] Spectre3353 > blowing you up is emotional profit
[03:51:50] Evangeline Macdowell > Well Im glad because turns out I just made a profit off of you
[03:52:18] Spectre3353 > excellent!
[03:52:22] Spectre3353 > im really glad to hear we could help you
[03:52:34] Spectre3353 > if you want us to help you get ship insurance again we would love to be of service
[03:53:16] Evangeline Macdowell > Thanks, but I see it being the other way around in the future =)
[03:53:26] Spectre3353 > youre welcome to come kill me any time
[03:53:26] Evangeline Macdowell > Have a good night.
[03:53:31] Spectre3353 > just ask and i can tell you where i am
[03:53:32] Spectre3353 > you too!
[03:53:33] Spectre3353 > good night
