scaning is boreing

when you dont find anything
when you do find things it can be very fun
but if you keep finding wormholes it gets very well old very fast

iv been flying around in my fleet still with the 2V a lot everyday
im starting to pine for a red to come in to 2V just so i can kill them
which they have now and then but iv managed to be in the wrong place everytime and not get on the kill
aaa well next time i will be sent to the action istead of gaurd duty :P

apart from that the Cap ship is comeing along got all the BPC's now
and my new ship fittings for the ishtar, phobos and Dominix are working wonders which is good

thats it really all is good

some quick tips on scaning
probing is very complex system as it IS based off real life probing biggrin.gif

iv seen loads of guilds and people tell me stuff that is soooo wrong
learn the basics and then build up on that my tips are:

space is 3D if you scan on a 2D plane then only the 3 closeit probes will give you good reading
but if you scan in all your probes will give you a boost (its hard to arage but can be done)

spend some time setting up the probes before you start hunting (you can use the SHIFT key to move them all around at once and also change all there scan ranges at once saves a lot of time)

if your scaning for cosmic then dont shove to meny probes out it wont help

if your scaning for a ship thats moveing as meny probes as you can and make sure to spread them out (maby leave one in a know safespot)

and a pic to leave you thinking

i lost a Domi


very annoyed at myself for yesterday
loseing ships used to be a way of life for me but iv not lost one to pirate gangs like that for some time
it is without a dout the most stupid thing in eve iv done for a while (outside of eve i can make you a list)
so i lost a Dominix
so here is how it happend
i login ready to do corp mineing and find out there is a red in my system (GA9P-0)
it was zyxeli in a Vagabond now on its own a Vagabond so i join a new intel iv become part of for the 2V -CSS pokect, togever with the corps that live in 2V we get fleets up and kill pirates who enter our space so far its doing fantasicly well and we given pirates a hard time :D, so i join a fleet who is hunting him, at this time im heading to the H9-J8N gate where serprise Vagabond lands and moves to lock me down (without setting agrro) i sit and think and get orders to move to 2V where i can lead him in to a trap (sure that sounds like a plan) i jump he follows.
on the other side... an ishtar under the flag of Kausal. i think to myself aaa crap im not going to be able to warp am i
so i do the motions of telling the fleet who are waiting in 2V -CSS to come save my ass and acting as if im trying to get away.
they warp scram me down and the ishtar deploys Bouncer II's which hurt a lot while the Vagabond deploys its drones and starts to fire on me. i deploy my heavy ECM drones which stop the Vaga and then move on to the ishtar. the drones do way to much damage and my sheilds melt and my armor tank wont hold for long. i tell the guys to hurry up. then they tell me where am i... we can see you... im like crap! i did not tell them i was at the GA9P gate not the 2V gate and thus the time wasted for them to get to makes me die in a ball if fire just as the 1st fleet ship lands and the two pirates run away. i get away in my pod. :D
now in the whole fight i had smartbombs where i could of killed all the drones there with (the vagas 1st then moved on to the Bouncer II's coz they had no web on me).
so i sould of done that right off the bat but i wanted to keep them there so much, coz i knew my freinds would come and save my ass, but because i gave bad intel they where seconds too late :)

aaaa well i lost a domi big deal i live and learn
i will buy and outfit a new one and change the fitting so it is even better than before :) then wait for them to die this time

at any rate i love the rush PvP gives you even if im the one getting the pasteing :P

an eventfull week

again real life is getting in the way of my eve time
which is normal i think :D

but even though that its still been an eventfull week as some major things have happend to me

my cap ship training is getting there i now have capital ships at level 3 so thats now just 4 days till i can fly my Thanatos which i think is so cool
then starts the training to be able to use it in a fight (and jump it to somewhere useful) so thats like another 100 days still (arg)
the skill books cost a lot as well it really hurts the bank account

iv also managed to get hold of all the BPC's (Blue Print Copy) for it a freindly corp thats in my alliance is going to give me the Capital Ship Components and iv just been down to jita (ARG) to pick up a Thanatos BPC (50 mil, ME 2)i was very happy
iv got a lot of mins iv allready donated to the corp to help build the beast so now i just got to wait

i also wintnessed a Cap ship gang getting owned at a gate
at the time i was in my Viator so i could do nuffing to help (or i would of)
so i sat there and watched 4 cap ships 1 dread and 3 carriers get torn apart bit by bit
after they died a blue fleet came in and sceard all the reds away (good timeing lol)
by the looks of things the cap ships warped in thinking they could take the red gang only to be overwellmed by a force that is more powerful and very well orgazised
i took some screens as well

all in all i say thats eventful
inside my alliance as been eventful as well with my best freind leaveing VVA for a another more PvP foucasd alliance (we will see how that works out)

just leaves the fact that eve is never a dull place

ooo boy lots of stuff

so i am home from my holidays
which was very good thank you for asking everyone :D

1st thing when i get back is a lovely group of chat rooms telling me VVA is at war and a evemail to seal the deal
large problem is that its going to start in 1 hour from the moment i loged on (fanstasic timeing if i do say so)
so my brain overwelled i log off call it a day

i come back move back to 0.0 and later in the week there is a fleet to hunt the war targets we fly around but as with any war iv ever been in the targets always hide and they have very good intel so you cant jump in on them (god dam it) so i get no kills just a long trip there and back

after that i have started a new job in Real life and thus have less time in the day for eve :(
but i came on one afternoon to find a massive attack was being held in a 0.0 inside provi
the system was called d-gtmi so i get in my Hyperion and head down there over 600 people in system all dukeing it out at a plaint
so i head there
get in close in a few targets and deal some damage (which was fun) then before i know it i get called primary (probley due to the size of the hyperion) and and dead before i even blink
the lag was just amazeing (i stop fireing but my mods keep on going) was funny as hell
lost my Hyperion but i got out in my pod (which i thort was worth it :D)
later that same day i was flying around and we come accross Oli Robbo who was in a Cyclone
i join a fleet which was allredy hunting him (with some of my freinds Cneagle, Humongo and Jorrel Baas) i pick up my Phobos and we catch and kill him at the 2v-css to ay-ycu gate (we did not get his pod coz i was a dumb as a set my bubble up too soon hitting myself all day for that one)
he was a good sport and we had some funny convo with him in local at wich point he made his mind up to take the pod express home and i got this very funny chat log :) and screen shot
