Lately we've been ganking miners in highsec. Anything within one jump of Egghelende, because all them belts be ours. A good number of Fwedditors have been getting in on the action. We've been supplying free Catalysts and Thrashers for the job, as cheaply fit as possible to get the job done. And according to Rina, our CEO, the loot and salvage is actually netting us a profit. Enough to afford new gank ships. Perpetual gank machine.
The miner ganking is done during slow periods. It keeps people interested and active. And it moves those not yet outlaw closer to being so.
Dudes like this give miners and carebears a good name. I don't hate all carebears, just the Whiney McWhiners. After we ganked his Mackinaw, he sent us an evemail:
ahh blast, you blew up my mackinaw! haha, good manuevers guys saw a blob of red drop in on my shit from across the room... funny when my roommate started screaming like a girl hahah xD cheers you guys!This guy has the right attitude about this game.
I guess one of the pocos we put up last week has turned a profit. This spurred Fweddit into throwing up two more. Now we own six. Soon, reimbursements for all the things. That might be a bit of a pipe dream.
If it means we get to do less orbiting buttons and missioning, then all the better. Fuck some of these faction warfare mechanics.
I got my 150th killmail for October tonight. No great achievement relative to other folks, but it's triple my previous best month.
I haven't been terribly active this last week, so some of the better battles that happened, I missed out on. Eve University is as terrible as always. Their two kills, they just held ships down so that the gates guns could take them out. Valid, though cheap, tactic.
And I missed out on a huge repping battleship brawl on an iLaw poco. Iron Oxide dropped a battleship gang on them. The battle raged on for awhile, but nothing was actually lost on either side. I'll assume that means the repping was pro on both sides.
We have a new doctrine in the works. But we've yet to try it out. So won't speak about it quite yet. Looks promising though. I have a couple skills to raise if I want to be helpful with it.
