Space Cadet Online - Eve Online Player ramblings

Against the odds: Mass of Wrecks wins

August 30, 2016

This weekend in EVE saw some player organized events taking place, from Theomachy on Saturday, to the pew4reps Vehement charity fleet, and of course the Mass of Wrecks events fleet on Sunday. A conflict of schedules, but the show must go on, and the roam went ahead as planned, even with diminished numbers. The FC on the night, Serventos was actually the first player to get a kill in the Theomachy event. Great start to the weekend.

Then on Sunday night he led the Mass of wrecks fleet on a roam that resulted in 4.33 Bil ISK in kills with a 99.8% Efficiency for the fleet. Yep, 15 pilots all in…

Mass of Wrecks - Sunday 28th August 20:00

August 27, 2016

 

 

 

 

Mass of Wrecks launches its first fleet tomorrow into a storm of content taking place over the weekend. The scheduled fleet now competes with a #pew4reps charity Vehement fleet. That has not deterred the organizers who are going ahead with the fleet and schedule, hoping that the schedule conflict may actually provide content for the Mass of wrecks fleet. For full details check out the Mass of Wrecks Website:

Moving forwards: New Websites

August 27, 2016

In recent weeks PvE has been getting a lot of discussion and awareness raised by the player base. While I am not against any more PvE changes to EVE online, I do think it could do with a bit of an overhaul, (I do have a post draft saved somewhere). My time has been taken up so much lately trying to plan a PvP based event in Mass of Wrecks events fleet. There has now been event conflict with the #pew4reps charity vehement fleet, which the organizers just happened to plan to take place on the same evening as mass of wrecks maiden fleet. Content guaranteed - even if our fleet will be smaller now.

Making Time for PvP in EVE

August 16, 2016

The last few weeks feel like they have been hectic, finding myself lucky if I can log into the EVE client for more than 45 mins at a time. Most days in fact I have not even been able to find the time, or remaining energy to play. Cursed with old age and adult responsibilities, has me taking more naps in the last few weeks than I ever have. That's just old age catching me up, right?

In my limited free time I have been focusing most of my efforts into planning the Mass of Wrecks event. Check out what happened on the o7show. The event was first mentioned, but it also turns out that the #Broadc…

Blog Banter 77 - Got it all wrong Doctor

July 19, 2016
Over at Sand, Cider, and Spaceships, Drackarn asked an interesting question as part of Blog Banter 77:
 
Blog Banter 77 - The Malaise
  • Is there a malaise affecting Eve currently? Blogs and podcasts are going dark and space just feels that little bit emptier. One suggestion is that there may be a general problem with the vets, especially those pre-Incarna and older, leaving and being replaced by newer players who are not as invested in the game. The colonists versus immigrants? Is this a problem? Are there others? Or is everything just fine and it's just another bout of summer "ZOMG…
