I have to say the idea of a media acct is cool. But this spawned an idea in my head about a challenge.

How is life in null for a new char right away? Or how far can that first bit of isk trade in a year’s time? Etc…

Thoughts?

Finders & Keepers

I started Eve about 3 1/2 years ago with one account. Like many a young noobin, once I figured out that you could clone the game client to run multiple at once (pre-launcher), I gleefully plotted out skill queues for the two other slots on my account that I would now actively play in conjunction with.

Right.

Of course I very quickly realized that CCP was much more business savvy than I’d originally given them credit for, and I learned to swallow that red pill that we all eventually do: that alt accounts are almost as much a part of Eve as undocking. Sure, you can absolutely play and enjoy this game with a single account, and many people do. But the nature of the beast is simply that alts make the world go ’round, and your Eve experience will magnify exponentially once you go down that secondary or tertiary…

Gil’s Tip #2

Tip two, because I assume I’ve tipped before. I’m a good tipper. Forget what the waitress said. In today’s roam with my alt, I came across a Catalyst and decided to take it out via suicide. The story follows.

[00:17:48] Cp Markus > lols
[00:24:39] Cp Markus > how long does it take to blow up a pod???
[00:25:59] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > **posted killmail**
[00:26:05] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > dunno, I just blew one up in short order.
[00:26:31] Cp Markus > lol bragging about newb kills is for pussies
[00:26:43] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > It’s just easier when getting my sec status lowered.
[00:26:44] Cercis InoAtari > vaginas? where?
[00:26:46] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > Also, he wasn’t a newb.
[00:27:00] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > I kid. OF COURSE HE WAS!
[00:27:27] Cp Markus > lol says the dude hiding in a station lols
[00:28:05] Cp Markus > hey he’s back out here in another catalyst lols
[00:28:53] Cp Markus > I’ll give you 20 mil if you can do it again lol
[00:29:15] EPIC Immortal’s > ya come out now bro

This was the guy just took the catalyst from

[00:29:39] Cp Markus > Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt vs epic…… hmmm my money is on epic
[00:32:09] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > what system?
[00:32:12] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > erm belt.
[00:32:26] Cp Markus > the first one
[00:33:26] Cp Markus > lols target jammers eh?

[00:33:35] Cp Markus > hold on he’s on his way

Apparently this Cp guy, who’s been around since early 2011, doesn’t know which chat window to type into…
He targets me with his ship. A drake. Then proceeds to get himself slain by CONCORD because he decided to just up and shoot me. I suppose he could have mde the mistake, but I’d like to think betting on stupid paid off this time.

[00:34:14] Cp Markus > hmmm……

Yeap, it would seem, it does.

[00:35:03] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > lol. CP Markus just got himself CONCORDED
[00:35:20] Cp Markus > dont bother me lol
[00:35:50] Cp Markus > ship for ship
[00:37:42] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > Oh, CP….
[00:37:56] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > –I return in the newb ship, take his stuff, then link his stuff in local– etc…
[00:37:58] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > thanks for the stuff.
[00:38:13] Cp Markus > lol its cool, just figured you can have a merry christmas
[00:38:18] Cp Markus > i can get it back no problem
[00:39:37] Cp Markus > you know whats really funny…. is watching my alliance slam you (:

Oh, alliance chat. Good. I open a chat convo. Hoping to gather more tears, and hoping for a wardec on this shit lazy empty corp I am in, before I jump out of it into another nullsec corp I am going to try to sneak into. (An earlier chat convo was had about that, prior to this stuff in local. Here’s to my next target.)

Chat Convo…

[00:40:33] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > o/
[00:40:41] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > Don’t bother salvage – it’s gone too.
[00:40:49] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > But I can contract the fields to you if you’d like.
[00:40:54] Cp Markus > lol you think i care????
[00:41:00] Cp Markus > hmmm nah
[00:41:06] Cp Markus > I’ve got plenty lol
[00:41:12] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > You’re so vain. You probably think this song is about you.
[00:41:16] Cp Markus > scammers and pussies dont bother me
[00:41:33] Cp Markus > its a game bro, i was gonna lose that drake and that shit anyways
[00:41:55] Cp Markus > i just went ship for ship. but you scooted out like a bitch, so its all good (:
[00:41:58] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > of course you were. as I was going to lose my cat and the sec status. ;)
[00:42:27] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > Well, the folks at TC-26 say thank you for your time, energy, and most of all… tears.
[00:42:40] Cp Markus > lol no tears for queers.
[00:43:01] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > So you’re saying you’re not crying, or you’re gay? I don’t understand, but do have the strangest erection.
[00:43:43] Cp Markus > im definitely not a queer… lols,
[00:44:07] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > Darn. Well fly safe then. o/

Catalyst and Sec Status

I’ve taken to pausing Gilbert’s skill queue for a little while; I am stuffing into an alt’s queue the skills necessary to make faster kills with a suicide catalyst. If you recall, that character is largely my corporation infiltration character. This is fine. He’s still in this ghost-town of a corp. Which really serves him well, imho, because I’m ruining my sec status so I can find other corporations that would like to help a “new pirate” on his way, etc.

Hoping, all the while, I gather the tears and maybe even a corp warpdec too.

Win some, lose some… (scams)

You would be surprised at how often people still fall for the ole “two items for the price of one” scam, or various forms. The recent UI changes (among others) have made it harder to contract scam, imho, but I still find it fun to try sometimes. The below was one of tonight’s conversations.

[02:02:43] Gilbert Hamilton > o/
[02:02:50] Siphre Darine > o/
[02:03:00] Siphre Darine > u need a plex ?

[02:03:39] Gilbert Hamilton > Ok. I’ll send you a link to contract. sec.
[02:03:46] Siphre Darine > k
[02:03:55] Gilbert Hamilton > 470m ok?
[02:04:14] Siphre Darine > k
[02:06:19] Gilbert Hamilton > [Plex]
[02:06:43] Gilbert Hamilton > nice bio details btw
[02:06:48] Siphre Darine > missing some zeros
[02:06:51] Gilbert Hamilton > always forgetting those percentages.
[02:06:54] Siphre Darine > u too
[02:06:55] Gilbert Hamilton > your bio? it’s all in there.
[02:10:14] Siphre Darine > 470 million not thousand
[02:10:36] Gilbert Hamilton > it says 470 million. not sure what you mean.
[02:10:44] Gilbert Hamilton > [Want To Buy]
[02:11:18] Siphre Darine > not for 2
[02:11:38] Gilbert Hamilton > [Want To Buy] It’s not for two.
