-Me, Saturday, early morning…
-Decide to explore null sec. I’m not a null sec guy. I hate blobs, bubbles, and secret intel channels.
- Fit up a fancy pants cloaky pvpish explorer ship. I picture it dropped on by 50ish titans 3 jumps in. Undock anyway.
- Go looking for a wormhole into null. Don’t trust the front doors. Find a hole to a low sec. It’s close enough I guess.
- First low sec system has a ratting vexor at a belt. Its a trap. Has to be a trap. Warp in anyway.
- Uncloak, point, overheat everything. Get ready to die in a fire.
- Local jumps up by 4. I continue to get ready to die. Vexor, Vexor, Atron, Condor on scan. My heart beats weirdly in my chest. First vexor pops.
-Maybe I won’t die? New guys engage and frigs pop then a vexor pops. Last vexor runs. Gf’s given.
-I continue the few jumps into null. Already surprised I’m not dead.
-Scan and explore things. Conclude data sites are junk.
Find first ghost site. First quality loot. Didn’t die.
Find weird drug manufacturing site. Find many drug blueprints! Get really excited about my new potential career as a drug dealer!
-Relic sites are ok I guess.
Nervous about how empty the systems are. Expect to die as i jump through each gate. Take a wormhole to a different null region.
Load up on drone goo and chips and stuff. Just over a billion in the cargo hold. Definetly going to die now.
Find a purifier sitting off a gate. Has to be a trap. Uncloak, point, overheat everything. It pops.
-(Was fit with no launcher, just cynos! Told you it was a trap!)
-Sneak past a few bubbles. Slowly make my way back into low sec. Not sure why in not dead. Get back to high sec.
Unload my booty. Prepare my career as a drug dealer. Realize drug dealing is more skill intensive than i thought. Maybe just a side hustle then.
Buy cool new ships with loot money.
Fly one of said ships to a nearby ice belt. Miners have littered the belt with their cans of ice. I steal, then explode cans to clean it up. Public service massage: Keep eve litter free!
Tengu decloaks and attacks. Definetly going to die. I point and overheat everything. Can tank the tengu fine in my fancy new frig! What?! I’m about to kill a tengu. Woot! Shields down.
Then shields are back up. Orca is repping the tengu.
-Switch point to orca, overheat everything! (Suspect orca, best orca.) Kill drones like it’s going out of style.
-My heart is beating weirdly in my chest. Hands get shaky.
Dodge fire from the tengu, an algos, and a thorax while my timer runs out. Chip away for 28 minutes at orca!
Orca pops literally as his alt in a Augoror land! Oh the joy and pain from each of us at that moment.
-Gf’s were given.
I don’t post much, but despite the fact that eve has been dying for all of the 10 years I’ve been playing, I still find it awesome that this game can bring such a crazy rollercoaster ride of emotion any given day.
Fly dangerous! 07
