Tonight after our alliance’s SOTA meeting we were having some trouble in local. We were being harassed so our little corporation decided to try and do something about it. We fit up our kitchen sink fleet, asked some of the alliance members if they wanted to join in, we had an amalgam of t1 frigates, destroyers and 1 assault frigate and 1 interceptor. We also had someone join us in a t2 logistics ship. Our glorious Space Pope joined us in his venture, since he got more dps with 2 drones in his venture than he did in an Incursus, seeing as he has no gun skills. This is what happens when you get a bunch of industrialists together to try and PVP.
Our fleet mind you, was shit, I could have been alpha’d by a destroyer, less than 1k tank, but I was fast, had tackle and thats all I needed. I barely eked out 70 dps, and I wouldn’t be surprised if that was how most of our fleet was. We had fun though, harassing the locals, we had a BS scrammed at one point but I missed out on the fun, they docked up after their timer however so we didn’t get a chance to have some real fights. It was good and I was surprised by the turnout for our crappy fleet. Shout out to the Space Inquisitor Zack Jew for FC’ing for the first time. hahaha. Anyways, it was interesting and was at least something to do while PL hot-dropped our home system to save some towers.
So I believe I am the worst corp Member we have. In all honestly I lose ships to stupid shit, and have terrible ISK efficiency, even though I do try and PVP. Compared to some of our carebears, I’m not that bad, but compared to everyone else who has actually gotten in fights, I am the worst. I embrace it, lost my ratting Vexor Navy Issue to a Loki, Tengu tag team the other day. The worst part, they didn’t even do the most damage, the rat did. I think if I had been against the Loki only, I might have been okay, I got him into armor fairly quickly. Anyway here’s the hilarious Killmail and my beautiful Killboard.
On top of it all I was talking to the CEO of our Corporation, Cinnamon ToastCrunch, and I suggested that in order to add some fun to our corp and other silly things we can do we hand out awards to people for the best KB of the month, or best Killing Blow of the month. It could add some spark to our corp and some friendly competition, which as everyone knows, increases comraderie and friendship.
Here, is what I received for the fruits of my labors.
Overall, I would say its quite a productive day, and our leadership is not at all bored. 🙂
Live long, and don’t let KB’s stop you from having fun.
A main source of income for most of our corpmates is ratting, since we can’t sell a lot of stuff on the market, people rat to get nice bounty ticks as well as for the occasional tag which as a corporation we have decided is okay to sell. The Clone Soldier Negotiator tags are the real biggies, at 25 million ISK a piece those bad boys are coveted by all of our ratters. Another thing that the ratters get is Meta level loot. As we can only build Meta 0 loot, a lot of ratters like to use the Meta 3-4 modules to pimp their fits. They melt the rest of the modules down for minerals. Instead of mining, the protect our miners. In this particular instance we had a corpmate who couldn’t break the tank of a BS class rat, so we warped in to help him out. The amount of drones on the field was insane, because you can reach higher max dps with drones than with t1 guns many of our members use drones as their main damage source. In the end we had a fun time, didn’t lose any ships and continue to make progress!
Before you all get your knickers in a twist because we have a stratios on field. We clearly stated that you could buy BPC’s off the market, that includes faction and pirate ships. I myself have a Navy Issue Vexor, and an Astero for Exploration. Building faction ships is far easier than building t2 ships.
Today one of our corpmates scanned down a C2 wormhole. So we decided to delve in and mine Arkonor until we stripped the belt. We thought, the only reasonable way to do this is to bring procurers and have a hauler move the ore back. Sure enough 4 procurers and a Miasmos later, and we have a sweet little mining operation happening. Many of the members need the megacyte for some more advanced modules and ships.
The Arkonor that was mined was amazing. I myself got a little over 1k Arkonor. Which isnt amazing. But I gave my proc to someone else while I continued to run logistics. It was a fun time. The only crappy part was our operation was untimely ended by a Russian in a stealth bomber. We all got away safe but that was it for wormhole mining for the night.
Today our Space Pope decided to risk his holy life and his ship and travel from our previous home over 30 jumps away in a t1 hauler to move some old minerals we had left there. These minerals are crucial to our production line as we are currently running low on Pyerite and Mexallon since the heavier ores are harder to get a lot of and Plagioclase is not in our area. After making the 30 jumps safely to our base. He promptly went out ratting in his new destroyer, and got scrammed and killed by rats on a gate.
However, his ships destruction was not in vain, I managed to kill all the rats and in the name of the Space Pope sacrificed their lifeless bodies that float in space until the end of days. It was an interesting day to say the least. Mining and manufacturing continues as normal.
As always, fly safe, D-scan every 20 seconds or get blapped!
Today the corp decided to head towards a democratic system, in which every director position is run for, then elected by the masses. Cinnamon and I decided to run for a co-position. As Secretary’s of Industry we feel we would make decent leaders. So we drafted an epic campaign speech.
“Our manufacturing division will not stop, not for pirates, not for war, not for anything. We plan to reach the upper echelon of production efficiency, every ounce of sweat to be recorded, every mineral to pass through our hands to be used to its full extent. We aim to out produce even the Amarr and Caldari in their times of greatness. Everyone will hear and know that the Pioneers of New Eden are the hardest working and most disciplined corporation out there. We will not fail you. We stand before you as Co-Directors of the Manufacturing Division, humble, because without you we are nothing. Without the ore and minerals mined by your hard work, for which many of you have bled for, we would not be able to produce for you what this Empire needs most. It is not ships you need, nor guns, nor ammo, what you need most is Hope, and we provide that. We look into the future with desire and determination.
Vote Ryan and Cinnamon for Secretary’s of Industry and lead this Empire into a New Age!”
I mean, how do you not get inspired by that. That right there makes me want to make another account and join the division to be under their leadership. Seriously, we may be at a disadvantage but we sure as hell aren’t giving up. This Empire will thrive. We will prevail. Now that Gaius Toralen has accepted his position as the Space Pope of New Eden, we will go into battle with the gods covering our back. Leading our bullets straight and true, guiding our missiles, fueling our starships. With a goddamn Pope on our side, we will prevail! ALL HAIL SPACE POPE TORALEN!!!!
Fly safe, D-scan every 20 seconds, or risk being blapped!
This was my first trip ever into a wormhole, and it’s like nothing else. With the radars whacking out from the cosmic signatures the local chat is broken. It’s beautiful out here. Empty space, nobody around but me.
Having loads of fun, got lots of Arkonor and Bistot to fuel our megacyte needs. We should have enough now for most people to build pretty much anything they want, all we are running low on is the basic minerals. With less than 500k of any one mineral we won’t be able to mass produce anything much less mining ships like procurers and retrievers.
Other than that today wasn’t very interesting, still stockpiling Blueprints as well as organizing the Manufacturing Division. Hopefully, we get everything cleared up soon so that everybody in the division knows what’s going on and who is doing what, and when it needs to be done.
