Holy Sov Wars Batman

So just as my HAC and Recon skills are finishing their relative training our alliance has now formed a coalition with the alliance that we were friendly with previously. And we are using this coalition to invade the adjacent space that has some very lucrative systems and stations. So far we have attacked one system and started on some others. The first has been relatively easy to get to the 2'nd reinforcement and should be ours shortly. With the next systems being a fair amount harder as the owners seem to want to protect that space with mother ships.

So we have our work cut out for us. But in the meantime there is plenty of pew pew to be had in our roams. I have even gotten to take a Zealot out and enjoy this beast of a ship for the first time. I was on top with damage and was a kill mail whore for the first time in my carrier on our gate camp. That was until we landed on a gate and our scout let us know a counter fleet was up and had landed on the other side of the gate. Well it was a Drake / BC fleet slightly larger than our own fleet which consisted of 3 heavy assaults (one of course was me), multiple BC's and 3 battleships. So we waited for them to come in and that they did. Unfortunately they had logistics with them. Well we engaged and started attacking their logistics. One went down and that is when they started to lock me up. Now the fleet commander had order the HAC's to wait until they were attacked and then jump into the next system. Well since I had an aggression timer I decided to warp away to another gate. And this is where I made my mistake by coming back right away. As I landed and reaggressed the primary target the previous logistics pilot came back in another ship and it all went downhill from there.

The FC called for us to split and I was pointed up at that time, so in the same day I got my first kills and lost my first Zealot.

 I have to say that I really enjoy this ship and look forward to flying it more often. While this ship has me excited I am so very glad to say that the Recon skill is about to finish up level IV. With this ship I look forward to some fun neuting times of logistics and other ships. I have been looking forward to this ship for quite some time. However once I have the support skills for this and the Zealot trained up I am going to start my long training towards the carrier once again. I even found a kind of recommended training path for a carrier that I may take.

See it here.

Anyway more pew pew to write about next time. Thanks for reading.

Long Lost Alt

So a lot has happened since the last time I posted and I am sorry for not being more on top of this. Basically I have been really busy outside of Eve and been only getting online for our Friday roams. Because of this I have limited my isk intake and finally broke down and sold my alt for some money to continue to play. Alas I will miss the little guy but it was time.

Now my main has since then finished Amarr Cruiser V and I can now fly HAC's as well as have T2 medium weapons. So I am starting to look into getting at least one Zealot as something to roam with. Next on the list of priorities is that of the Curse. I really am looking forward to this ship as I feel it is not only a great looking ship but also one of great respect amongst others out there.

At some point I would like to put together a Recon gang involving all combat recon ships and possibly logistics. I have decided that I am going to bulk up my support skills for both the Zealot and the Curse before moving on to heavy interdictors or the guardian at this point. And then I can continue to look into training for a Carrier at some point there after.

For now though I have been leading battlecruiser sized gangs around the area. Our last one had 20+ attendees and was well rounded. The only thing we lacked were logistic ships. Which would have come in handy considering we landed on top of a similar sized gang with two logi's and we ended up doing well against them but lost in the end. We had maybe 3 or 4 get out with there ships while we took down 5-6 of theirs. It was still fun and happened at the start of the night rather than late into the night like what has been typical of our roams as of late.

Hopefully tonights roam will work out well and maybe we can even get some logistical support tonight. As for the alliance we are in the middle of a possible move from our current location due to Havens and Sanctums no longer being available where our blues live. Only time will tell on this one and there are a lot of suggestions as to what we should be doing floating around right now. Mostly political and at this time I don't think I want anything to do with them, but only to pewpew other ships and maybe make some money in missions.

Which I have thought about potentially buying one of my dream ships for missioning, the Nightmare. I am still up in the air on this and will probably make a decision on what I am going to use to mission soon.

Anyway thanks for reading.
