ABA Scalding Pass

ABA Scalding Pass

Our null adventure has hit a roadblock, but are we sad? NO! Fuck NO! To give you a bit of background, we took a couple of systems in Scalding Pass using the new Aegis Sovereignty System (a.k.a fozziesov), which makes it easier (somewhat) for any alliance large or small to attack/claim regions of null security space.

We used this chance to branch out of low-sec and embark on our null experiment and with a bit of diplomacy we gained blue status with a local alliance Feign Disorder, FEIGN. The kicker was they had allies (Gone Berzerk, BZK) that would not set us blue and had eyes on taking our new found sovereignty! This is what we signed up for, sort of, some null sec fights and the chance to make some ISK down in glorious null space. The issue for us was we had long logistics lines and few members living in our new home.

We couldn’t take the fight to BZK becuase they were hold up in FEIGN’s station, cowards. We couldn’t repay their sovereignty attacks with our own as we would be attacking our blue allies. What a bag of shit! We know it’s a harsh life in New Eden, but for fuck sake, we were fighting a losing battle on that score.

We just weren’t ready for this, we didn’t have time to get our ships down there nor setup a decent logistics route. The forces we were up against were nothing to write home about, a fail Zealot and Dominix were giggle worthy kills by our skilled pilots. Their local trash talk was the usual tripe of links to GIF’s and poorly constructed sentences, so it seemed appropriate to read them a bed time story:

Vi’ana > need a bed time story?
Vi’ana > once upon a time there was a corp, they had 48 members and poor KB stats
Vi’ana > they were bold and brave and thought #fozziesov was their chance for glory
Vi’ana > little did they know that #ABAForever was a devious and wicked foe
Vi’ana > #ABAForever were too looking for #fozziesov fun
Vi’ana > but the true difference was, #ABAForever had so many bitter vets that it did not matter
Vi’ana > getting sleepy yet?
CaNy0uSaS > yepp
CaNy0uSaS > yaaaawn
Vi’ana > rest little one, I will continue with my bed time story
Vi’ana > #B.Z.K thought they were safe in there little world of null
Vi’ana > lashing out at what they percieved as threats in the vain hope to look l33t
Balton Wait > tldr… sry…
Vi’ana > they sent their pitiful forces to claim what they could in hope to make their mark in a harsh land of new eden
Vi’ana > some lost their fail fit zealots (lol), other said NO, we can win the station
Vi’ana > but t’was all in vain for #fozziesov said NO, the owners shall have timers
Vi’ana > and all your entosis is for naught
Vi’ana > rejoice shouted the members #ABAForever
Vi’ana > we shall have our services and will not be without the NES for our skins
Vi’ana > and all was well untill the next day when the dastardly BZK came back to entosis and so the story continued
Vi’ana > night night little ones

Sure, it was a bit adhoc, I was drinking a fine red wine at the time, but no matter. There was no response from our agressors, I must have put them to sleep. Eventually though they did reinforce our system, so now we are choosing our options and planning the next move. What will that be you ask? Well that would be telling wouldn’t it and I don’t leak intel!

See you soon BZK.

Another New Home

J2-PZ6 Station

J2-PZ6 Station

So after moving all my crap to our low-sec home I felt a sense of acomplishment. I was “home”, I could now get down to the serious Internet Spaceship stuff! Hold on, what’s that? We have a null-sec station now? WTF!

Hold on, hold on, I’m not moving my crap anymore, I’ll go old school and buy what I need down there and wing it! A certain song comes to mind, “Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and smile”….

I’m off, a lone ceptor heading to my new (new) home! It’s only 22 jumps, through low and null security space, should take me no time at all.

The trip to our new station was uneventful, I didn’t even sightsee, a few reds in local on the way; I see we have our standings set! A few blues greeting me on the way was a nice touch, making me feel like I was going home!

Landed in the system and headed for the station for a quick image of our new home! Dad Lost The Keys! Oh yeah.

Docked up and set clone, time to get comfy in my new quarters and prepare for the PvP fun we will be having down here in Scalding Pass. No more moving my shit around thats for sure, I’ll fire sale if all this goes to shit.

Journey To A New Home

Obelisk

Obelisk

I hate moving crap around New Eden! I mean, you either do it in short hauls in something nimble or take the plung and stick everything in a frieghter and take the risk of ganks. I chose the latter! Yeah, yeah I know!

Getting out of Matar space into Gallente space was easy, in fact I felt rather safe down there and have been for at least 3 years! Once on the Gallente/Caldari border things got hot. I had 32 jumps from my old home in Matar space to my new home all the way north to Caldari space.

As expected Goons were on practically every gate for the last 10 jumps, scanning the shit out of me at every gate. I had about a 500m isk of crap that I could probably have organised and reduced to about 100m to haul. I did shrinkwrap it of course, but I think that is even more of an invite to gank, just for the sake of it.

If you’re new to EvE, the Obelisk is a capital frieghter, its slow and aligns about as quick as a pot smoking old age pensioner with arthritis! The plus side, it can carry shit tonnes of cargo. I had it hull tanked, cuz, why not.

After each jump the number of reds in local was getting me sweaty, entering Kamio confirmed I was being stalked. Rather ironic, since I was hauling a tonne of crap to start my new life as a pirate. Would be amusing to lose all this to a gank before I’d even become one! A small frigate burned towards me and bumped me, here we go.

I was obviously aligning to the next gate, but now I was bumped off my alignment and was essentially a beached whale trying to get back on course. Another bump, this time from the oposite vector, yay, thanks for that Mr Ganker, you just helped me align to a station!

Fuck this for a game of <insert reference>, I’m docking this piece of shit ship and calling it a day. There was no banter in local chat, and I didn’t iniate any either, no use provoking anyone; I’d still have to get this ship to my new home at some point.

This was a good time to wax lyrical in corp chat and lament at how long its been since I lived this for north. I’ve missed Caldari space, it can be full of shit heads, but I have missed the old systems and regions I used to call home when I first started EvE.

After a few hours of corp chat, local looked empty. I bought a shuttle and scouted the rest of the route (8 jumps), pretty clear. Fuck it, I want this move over and done with. Back to the Obelisk and off we go. The last seven jumps were uneventful (yay), get scanned on the last gate before my new home, fuck off… I’m going for it, jumps…. Yay! local is empty! Dock up, I hate frieghters.

I bet you thought there would be a loss mail in this post! Fuck you.

Vi’ana Joins Stay Frosty. [ST-FR]

Well I’ve gone an done it. After years of skill training I think its time for me to use those skill points and become a PIRATE. Yep, I’m going to be the scum of New Eden and intend revilling in the wins, losses and total failures. Sure I’ve had PvP experience before, but there is nothing like commiting to a role in EvE and playing it out to its max.

Stay Frosty.

To that end I’ve joined the awesome boys and girls over at Stay Frosty.! Yes, it’s Rixx Javix’s crew, so no pressure there then (fuck). How hard can it be? Kill anything that flys and is’nt blue! The learning curve will be a bitch and yes I’ll have to therory crafting ships again, but that’s the fun part too.

I think at this point I need to set some goals. Some will be easy, whilst others will require a modicum of meta play. Trying not to be too abitious:

  • Become -10 (should be easy enough)
  • Get a serious amount of bounty on my head (I’m sure my victims will oblige)
  • Become infamous (thats gunna take a lot of work)

So, this brings me to the reason for this website. I’ve been know to wax lyrical in the past so what better place to document my adventures (good and bad) than here on this shiny new website. I’ll be including After Action Reports (AAR), stories from my travels and experiences as well as fucked up things that may happen along the way. With a large dose of wonderful EvE Online screenshots, a smattering on videos (again, the good and the bad) and maybe even some Twitch streaming for the balls out laugh out loud moments.

I need to get my shit togther a bit before heading out for the hunt, but be sure to follow me for updates to this site and your chance to comment.

At this point I’d usualy say Fly Safe, but I think that would be hypocritical.
