I’m all for adrenaline. Hands shaking is awesome. Being scared of whatever is going to hit you in the game is great, too. I guess I need to change the wording from “in” to “of”, because I guess being scared in the game is fine, but being scared of it isn’t.
Thanks for making me aware of this.
I remember converting my first bear, not sure he truly was one. He was a miner, actually a professional, who did all the math and ■■■■ and afaik wasn’t afk. I’ve managed to convince him to go on a suicide roam with me, searching for haulers.
Two hours we went through half of highsec, finding nothing. Met plenty of people, had some nice chats. I was -10 in a Rupture, which attracted a bit more attention than usual, but it wasn’t that big of an issue. After two hours we called it a day, went back to Hek. At the in-gate in Hek, suddenly he saw an apparently autopiloting, untanked hauler filled with ■■■■ worth 300 million ISK.
I warped to the station. He warped around five seconds later, but to 10km distance to be sure that, if he’s APing, he’ll be close. The hauler warped in, I blapped it, he got out of warp.
Then it all went really quickly. Not sure we had the LOOT ALL button back then already, but I don’t think so. He grabbed it all, but for some reason saw items left and wanted to grab them, blinking as suspect. He said his hands were shaking like a washing machine, trying to grab the rest of the stuff not realizing that it was HIS cargo that was showing and not the wreck’s cargo … and got blown up by some guy at the station.
Adrenaline. It’s one hell of a drug.
From then on he did whatever “creative content” he could do. He provided logi for awoxers, he ganked, did all kinds of stuff I didn’t even get to know. From then on he had more fun than he ever had.
Hey, would you be interested in pissing off the farmers with me, in invasion space?
I’m a professional, you’d be in good hands.
