Stuck in SV5

So im stuck in my pod in SV5
:D i knew if i went to this CTA it would be my Megathron's last. well at least it was a good fight :D
also a well run sinper fleet but if you get called primary you going to die 
i see wensley in local :P he killed one of my corp mates who was unlucky to fly in to there trap at a cyno in his cov ops

well not much really to blog about apart from the waiting in SV5
i have not been on much as i had pressing uni work to get on with (dont want to fail how ever much i love to play eve)
and apart from that things are going very well
with FACTS on EVE getting new members (waves corp mates in Facts forums) and we are for once in our corp history makeing more money than we are spending (which means we can buy nice things for the corp and members). we are doing our own PvP ops never before have i had a FACTS only PvP op outside of high sec war decs
which i really enjoy, i may even get pratice my FC'ing some more

here some screens i took today

Another day of managment and fun

So if you hold a place of alliance director you seem to get drafted to do things at stupid times of days :)

One of these things is hauling in my Cov ops transport over 2 billion worth of minerals to jita to sell for the alliance
The amount of money that had going in to my account that day was dizzying for me (ok 2 bil not that much but still it’s quite a lot just to pass hands)
But that was a while ago

Also helping escort freighters is another one of them respocen abily :D
New sinience upgrades level 5 pirate decation field and the cyno jam upgrade 
It’s all good fun helping beyond billions of stuff come in to system to help upgrade our money making power :D I will be enjoying the new sites that come live soon and also being able to cyno jam our system

I really love a good slug out between 2 fleets and fleet sizes where you don’t instant pop if you get called primary 
So while I am waiting to escort this freighter there is a red fleet handing around in our way
R3, X-R3 they are hanging around in heavy drake and shield support fleet
so like a good boy I’m already in my Myrmidon, which I love to bits did you know the Myrmidon is the 1st ship I got a kill in :D also the 1st ship I lost to PvP at the same time,  so I fleet up and we move to engage them...
Here is how the fight went from my point of view (1st time I don’t this in my blog as well)
So we all meat up in x-r3nm and got on the r3-k7k gate. Then found out they were on the misaba gate so we jump in aline, then they all warp to us on the x-r3nm gate so we reapoce and then they land and jump we follow after. so what happens after is a slug out where the two snail across the grid the drake fleet moving as fast as they can away from our tackles and us trying to keep up with them in our mix of ships.
I was hanging back a bit as my myr had long range rails and drones that and be controlled at long range. So we start popping them one by one. We also had logistics with us but the problem being our movement pace was all different and some people moved out of range of the logistics and thus were blown apart in a hail of missiles and drones
Overall we did much better than them with not many losses and lots of kills :D
After that they left whoever had been takled to die and ran away
Another fun match: D

How to have fun loseing ships

so the next day comes along and my freind and corp mate Humongo tells me that a friage gang is setting up in 9UY to go help take on a red fleet. So I get my trusty ishker (not my ishtar :D) and head on down join up. there is a large gang in 9-F0B2 so our little gang (we numbered just 20 frigates) headed over to y-mpwl where there was a Moros under attack, once we get there the reds start to leave, did manage to kill a Prophecy before he got out which is always fun. So the large red fleet is now in 9uy and we ordered to meet up with another large blue fleet to take them on. meet them in 9uy as the reds jump out toward 9-fob2 again.
So the blue fleet we are with follows them in to 9-fob2 and we then follow the blue fleet :D. the fight that followed was a blood bath for our side. I think it was reported they had 9 Guardians which means a LOT remote repi was not able to take down anything but a lonely manticore which I ponched on too fast for them to re. then I died in a hail of fire so many bubbles going up my pod as well.
but I had a hell of time dieing what I way to go in a fight like that fire EVERYWHERE!
So I was not done with that fleet for the day
I had ended up in my new clone and get right back in to my trusty Myrmidon (you will rember form the report above)
A new larger blue fleet is being formed to kick there ass and I join up and race with them to the D-GTMI system. Where on the gate to t-rpfu we warp (well most of us) I’m the 1st to land and BAM local starts to spike. then one hell of a slug fest begins and with our own logistics this time and most of their taken down or ECM'ed we wipe the floor with them
very nice fight
later one we catch another one in FX-7EM then I call it a day and head home

cloaky reds and reading blogs

Ok so anyone who knows anything about Ushra'Khan knows that they like they cloaky ships. Now I have no problem with cloaky ships or Ushra'Khan (I won’t call them UK as confuses too many thinking they all come from the United Kingdom which I live in lol) but I really don’t like ships that just cloak up and wait in sectors for days on end.
now to be honest its not Ushra'Khan that have been doing this the most in my area of Provi but one came in today that was Ushra'Khan and it has gotten my back up about the 24/7 cloak as I have faced a lot of them since the Dominion patch. When I see a red in local I get in a PvP ship. In fact if I see a red anywhere I can get to I get a PvP ship. This means I am in a PvP ship till they leave and coz they are just cloaked somewhere AFK I can’t get a fair fight out of them so I just waste my time waiting to see if I can kill them. I do give up and find PvP somewhere else mostly 9uy area. What really annoys me is when I come online with a mission to do something that isn’t PvP and I am faced with a red so I am forced to go somewhere else to PvP which I did not plan.
now PvP always comes 1st for me I don’t get a lot of kills but I do my fair share and I’m always in the top 10 killers in my alliance even if it is number 10.
So basically what I am saying is I wish these reds would just fly around abit more! I mean I don’t mind if the fly around attack every god dam ratter and miner in the system (to be honest I think it’s a good thing it reminds people we are in 0.0 not carebear land) I just want to see them active and doing things. what I really hate is knowing they are just AFK wasting my time (the time of their alt) and the time of my friends if they where active I problem would not be able to catch them still but at least I would be able to try... which I think makes the game a whole lot more fun.

Anyway that’s that rant over with

On the note of other people
In my efforts to find out more about the world of EVE I have been reading other blogs
I’ve read other blogs for a long time now such as, roc's ramblings (I do have I iphone and I do use capsuleer after all in fact funny story is I meet pyjama sam at fanfest which was really interesting), EVE online wormholes, Diary of a pod pilot, life in low sec and the others I have a bit of a back log on and need to catch up reading so I can’t hostily say I’ve gotten that far.
But as 0.0 is my world and I love the place 3 blogs and stood out for me...
A Mule in eve this blogger has been livening in 0.0 for some time and its fun to find read and learn from his experiences
Eve's weekend warrior who has just moved down to 0.0 it is most amusing to see how the move has going (joined up with Ushra'Khan :P so I hope I don’t see him AFK cloaking systems)
Rifter drifter who is just about to move down to 0.0 (joining up with -A- I believe)

so there are a lot of 0.0 bloggers but these all stand out as they are very good blogs and they are all around where I live :) which is always good
They are also all red to me LOL the life of someone who lives in CVA space I guess :P
But it is most amusing to see hed-gp talked about from another angle or anyone saying anything about the proviblob which I am sometimes a member of :)

Any rate that’s it with my current musing
All that is happening with me at the mo is I’m building up a bit of a buffer and I’m trying to be more active in PvP (means I move out of my +5 clone now and then).
Looking at buying my Proteus and Deimos still trying to work out the fit for both.
My Alt is still projessing with the skill I will soon have him in a Stealth Bomber and then a ratting battleship which will be so much fun!

So everything else out of the way
Enjoy the photos :D
