Hydra dead? Awesome! Fair enough there's always something going on in eve. It's got to be aaa next on the chopping block as well as ROL.

Massive scam occurs again. I wish I had the time and patience for EVE but just reading stories and hearing about the amount of time (and equivalent real world money) that goes into these scams more than makes up for that. :D

Seems the rzr thing has fallen through as we dont really have enough members now so we are merging with another ex atlas corp who we get on very well with and were looking to join another alliance (don't ask the corps name it's really bad, I mean really really bad).

Well bobbys with brick squad now. He's a part of the NC!. Oh and cry havoc went pop saying that members were bored and the game performs badly. Personally I think there must be more to it as the servers been bad for ages. Oh and as a nice gift to myself for earning money trading shit I bought myself an Apoc navy issue. It's sexy as hell. put two 1600mm plates on it and the armour hits 30k. Monster tank!

Beychae just come north. Don't go with one of those flakey southern allainces, most of whom are going to die in a ditch. The north offers stability and quite frankly that what you need now. I'm sure someone will pick your corp up. Rzr maybe a no no but there are plenty of others. Some of them could do with more members.

Resubbed to check out new PC and monitor (very nice by the way). Thought I'd go get my mining barge from 0.4 and bring it back to high-sec space. Got my ass blowed up by a pirate at the warpgate :)

That's me and EVE, right there.

Just missed the free re-sub offer due to moving house / dead power supply. Any idea how often CCP offer free re-activation?

I just lost a Nighthawk in lowsec after I'd been there about 5 minutes on a mission. Other than admittedly impressive scan-fu on the part of his wingman, fucking fuck. This is why I hate PvP. I have never, in almost 7 years of playing the game, had a single fight in which I was not immediately and utterly dominated by the other player and the outcome of the engagement was obvious within the first 10 seconds, and the remaining 5 minutes was tedious orbiting while I waited to get killed.

I don't understand how this can be fun. And I'm not being rhetorical - I literally do not understand, and I would like someone to explain it. In 1-on-1 PvP, isn't the outcome dictated 90% by the ships and their fitting? Where's the skill, other than in making sure you press the right F-keys after you've reloaded ammo?

I've probably been unlucky every time this has happened because I've never gone out looking for a fight, although the absolute roasting I got this time left me wanting to chuck the whole PC in the bin. I thought I'd have a fighting chance in a T2-fitted Nighthawk but this time a fucking Tengu caught me - can you get worse luck? I was on him with drones and a full rack of heavies immediately but I never got him below 90% shield and it was just a matter of time before he broke my tank - firing what seemed like one t2 heavy every 10 seconds but doing 600+ damage every time. This is bullshit.</whine>

The tank on a Tengu is insane. They can tank the maze which is the highest complex in eve. 1 v 1 pvp is rare these days. Which is a pity. Bare in mind he was likely faction fitted as well. Sorry for the loss dude but that's eve. For better or for worse.

One of the guys I know flies a Tengu looking for 1v1 pvp all the time and he absolutely swears by it but it is worth several billion.

Effortlessly obliterating someone is fun if you're the one doing the obliterating of course. But you're partly correct, most times the outcome of an engagement is determined in advance, particularly in a 1v1 situation such as you describe where there's a huge ship differential. The key I guess to winning these kinds of things in a lesser ship is not being in a position to be engaged, or appearing to be something you're not, or having backup waiting in the next system etc. But yes, once that Tengu engaged you you were mincemeat.

Well new expansion is out. No idea if it's improved the lag. Also it's more of a care bear/ empire patch. Wonder when I'll see a sansha mothership...

you can set barrages to all fire from 1 button press using groupings. so it wasn't 1 heavy missile, it was all of his heavy missile launchers in one package.

No idea you played matey, whats your main toon called? I noticed a crazy hair welsh chick in bennyhill, was that you? (I am Alderdoc BTW)

This was an attempt to replicate my Real Life face, sadly lacking sideburn options or actual glasses (rather than 10 identical pairs of shades!)
