    Day 3: A quick day, with only 7 ships to throw into the grinder. And it was a grinder, at first. However, three stil made it through: a rather sneaky Tengu to combat the increasing measures of ze evil campers P, an oddly ignored Basilisk, and finally a majestic Caldari Shuttle to cap off the festivities. No-one brought any fireworks in spite of being asked (and there should be plenty floating around out there after previous days' wrecks).

    In total over the last three days:


    • 52 ships were flown.
    • 23 Arrived (more or less) safely at their destination.
    • The killboards report ~33bn worth of losses, but don't include a number of deaths and also fail to calculate the value of a number of items, especially researched blueprints.
    • 3.1bn worth of bounties were paid out.
    • Just over 4bn worth of insurance was paid out.






    Last day lottery!

    Not as spectacular as previous ones, but still, the rest has to go!

    the internet has selected, #67: Shallanna Yassavi, who'll be getting those last few ships and their contents in a in a (comparatively) modest contract.P




    BONUS ROUND

    Something I didn't think of at first, but now have to fix… As previously mentioned, all those lost ships means a sizeable chunk of insurance has been paid out, even at the base level. That has to go too. So again, the internet has selected, #32: Glathull, who gets whatever is left in my wallet at the end of the day.



    That's it. All gone. Thanks for the entertainment and I hope you all remember to kill (or lose) it forward. Maybe I'll see you people around some day, somewhere. :)

    Hehe, gotta say this thread is definitely interesting to say the least.

    So on average how many players jumped on Tippia's Transport Targets this time, over 1/2 dozen ?
    And was everyone fleeted during this or was it every man for themselves type of situation ?

    I imagine collecting the Loot drops must have been a grab bag / free for all situation (There Can Be Only One) right ?

    Anyway, gratz to Kirikarasu for getting the Leftover Lottery, that's definitely a major farewell contract.

    It was essentially Marmite, Ralph + alt(s), and some random Kubinen inhabitants that may or may not have been in cahoots in some way that I'm not sure of. Also, there was the single attempted alpha gank on the Irjunen undock, who unfortunately was faced with a brick-tanked Bustard… it didn't make much of a dent, but it was funny. Lol

    In total, I'd say that I had at least a dozen different characters gunning for me at various times — a definite improvement over yesterday. Oh, and funnily enough, this mix probably made it a whole lot easier to get things through. Everyone was too busy looking out for everyone else and being interrupted by the competition to give me full attention.

    As for the loot, it was probably a bit of first come first serve, but whenever possible I tried to have some kind of suspect or limited engagement timer going so stuff would be easier to grab for just about anyone.

    Also, remember when I asked if you needed a ship?
    If you look at the Obelisk, you'll understand why — I had a couple to choose from… P

    Day 2: More opposition, more cat-and-mouse, more infighting, and definitely a few very silly moments. Lol

    The more all-around-facepalm one was when everyone involved momentarily forgot that DSTs have inherent warp stabilisation and you need more than a simple point to keep them in place. They also have a bit of a tank. So it took a while to get it down to half shield, at which point I noticed something in my overview… and warped off. The Brownstone Brick lives to see another day. P

    A less happy, but far more silly, outcome was the salvaging under fire that my Damnation's tank allowed for… and being a Damnation, it allowed for a lot. Too bad the salvage didn't survive the explosion. Cry

    Another bit of silliness was the Scimitar (no KM up yet, apparently) that completely ruined some gate infighting by repping everyone around before being blown up, and the aforementioned second Bowhead that spat out a Nightmare in a brief stroke of good fortune… except that everyone had weapons timers and couldn't board it, other than me… except (again) that I can't fly battleships, so no luck there either. Lol

    All the fun meant that only 19 flights took place, leaving 7 more for the last day, and with 10 more (plus the aforementioned Bustard) surviving the trip: An Obelisk that snuck by before Marmite got themselves sorted, a standard uncatchable Crane, a rather fast Svipul, a very uninteresting Myrmidon, a Purifier (that almost got caught), a Huginn that did get caught, but managed to scare off the tiny ships (with a bit of a help from a third party intruder), a Legion, a Crow, a Loki, and an overtanked Sleipnir that also got away from a fight in all the confusion that ensued..

    If it has Large Rigs on it, then it's definitely a Collectors Item.

    I think the Large Hybrid Locus Coordinators in the contract come from that one, so yes. It's that old, and even then, it had been through a couple of (mainly L2 mission-fit) iterations before it ended up like that.

    End of day 1, lots of stuff exploded, some stuff didn't.

    The losses are available for all to see, and while there were some good loot, the eponymous fairy seems to have a deep aversion to Battlecruiser BPOs and fancy battleships. The Bowhead kill would require an entire symphony orchestra worth of sad trombones to really convey what happened. Lol

    (Btw, if anyone knows of a good rule of thumb to value TE/ME research, please chime in — most of the blueprints were maxed out, so whatever they show up as will not be the whole truth).

    Out of 26 flights (probably… if I counted them right, which is doubtful), 9 arrived at their destination, be it through stealth, speed, feinting, or just being a sneaky bastard: an Anathema, a Raptor, an Ishkur, a Talos, a Prowler, a Buzzard, a Taranis, a Proteus, and my oldest ship, the first Cormorant I bought back around Christmas 2007.

    So why are you quitting? Just tired of CCP?

    That would be the ultra-concise version of it, I suppose.

    I started playing EVE because it was a very special oddity of a game where the devs very explicitly promoted and supported a wide range of player-driven gameplay and emergent behaviours. Over the years, as the game and the devs have changed (and that's a chicken-and-egg debate for another time), it has lost a large part of what made it special.

    What CCP seemingly wants the game to be, based on their development decisions, is not the game I want to play. At the moment, I'm not sure I can really find it anywhere else either, but that doesn't translate into EVE's still being worth-while — it has simply joined the ranks of games that aren't doing it for me. Instead, I've picked up other games that do other things, and that's entertainment enough for the time being.

    At least two of the PLEXes were earned from people who left the game for some reason and who left them because I had said something clever in opposition to whatever it was that made them leave. Same for a couple of the BPO duplicates.

    My bounty definitely is. Too bad that it will now (hopefully) go to the kinds of people who were the opposition to the guys who gave me those bounties. (Hmm… I don't really mean “too bad”, do I…?)
