I realized it’s not that bad…

Today’s loss of ship and the resulting loss of pod. Most of my ships are either stolen or otherwise grabbed. The amount wasn’t too bad, but I did have a bit of a “oh poop. that’ll take some market work to repair,” feeling come across me.

Either way, those Negative Ten guys had a very efficient gate camp. I’ll take less shortcuts around the Hek area from now on. Or bring friends.

That’s What She Said

A long time ago, I named my Iteron, “That’s What She Said.” I think I was watching the Office (American) during that time, and the iteron in all of it’s penis-like glory just got named that. It wasn’t a Roc sized Iteron, just an Iteron Mk3. (FYI, rumor has it, that Roc’s Itty is at least a little bigger.)

Anyway, dick jokes. Good times.

So, I decided to continue the Dodixie buy/sell of some pvp modules, and with one specific module, I earn anywhere between 700k and 1.5m per module. Another module, a scanner probe, has seemed to be a near constant price war. I usually ignore it when the penny fights are with quantities much lower than what I am selling if the market volume has been high anyway. But I decided to buy out the lower priced sale orders and just resell them.

Since I was given advice to try and pick a market near a PVP border, I took those shitty modules (which aren’t really shitty, just commonly used/forgotten/destroyed) and moved them there. Put them up on the market. Undocked to head back to Dod, bumped into another ship, and then promptly lost my little Itty. Oh well, there is 2 million gone. No biggie, and frankly, whatever. It’s certainly something I recouped price wise in the last few hours anyway.

I am beginning to like this. Just the right mix of numbers, travel, and play that I can seem to “handle” these days with my busy schedule.

One thing I did find, however, was the new low-sec area – and I think tonight I am going to take my cane out there, or something similar, and see what I can’t scare up or how fast I can lose the cane. ;)

Market PVP or – One of the nicest ways to play EVE

So, I haven’t had much real time to commit to shooting at ships and losing my own. Nor do I feel like losing any right now; though I can afford to replace them. It’s just a slow slump.

However, I am still quite active – and have found a new version of love in this game. Market work. I think it’s cool to be able to, in a bit of downtime, sit in station and buy something for 6.8Mil and sell it back, within minutes, at 8.5Mil. That’s a profit of about 2 million, less fees, for items I never really even touched.

This could. Nay. This will get fun.
