Travails

 

Didn’t want to play EVE this weekend. Not only did I not want to play it, I deliberately avoided any blogs or articles or anything like that. This happens from time to time and passes as quickly as it comes. I think sometimes I just get a little burned out and need to spend a few days away. I did play a little bit of Dust514 and I really wish I could tell you about it in further detail but I don’t want to run afoot of CCP’s rules for those of us taking part in the beta. Needless to say, I think you should take some of the unadultarated praise with a pinch of salt and have reported back to CCP with my findings.

Anyway, my heavily pregnant wife has now finished work and is spending a few days down the south of Scotland with her parents meaning I have what is known colloquially in Scotland as an ‘empty’. We missed the AAA train back from our deployment up in Okagaiken so Jeg is coming round my place tonight for pizza and beers so we can fleet up back down to Catch. Be sure to look out for us on our way back down to HED this evening!

Should we get back down at a reasonable time, I’m thinking I might FC a wee frigate roam. Inspired by some great blogging over at Dischordant’s blog, I really fancy taking his Firetail fit out for a roam:

 
[Republic Fleet Firetail, Dogfight!]
 
200mm AutoCannon II
200mm AutoCannon II
E5 Prototype Energy Vampire
 
X5 Prototype Engine Enervator
Balmer Series Tracking Disruptor I
J5b Phased Prototype Warp Scrambler I
Experimental 1MN Afterburner I
 
Small Armor Repairer II
Adaptive Nano Plating II
Damage Control II
 
Small Projectile Ambit Extension I
Small Projectile Collision Accelerator I
Small Anti-Explosive Pump I
 
I always feel like I want to fly something a bit more substansive than a T1 frigate but balk at fitting an AF properly for ~70m ISk knowing I am going to probably just welp it anyway. Something like the fitting above seems like a happy medium between between fun and value. Of course, the other option is that we end up in some AAA roam where we spend most of our time calling CFC dicks in local and telling Rundle and Jade to make the Lost in Eve a bit less than FOUR FUCKING HOURS LONG.
