Never know whats in store when you log onto Eve.
After a very stressful day where our wormhole was doing its best impression of Grand Central Station, with 3 outbound and 2 inbound wormholes active, I was excited to log on for a quiet night of some home space mining. So much for the best intentions.
Warped to our open grav site and we had already hit the good stuff and okay stuff, so i decided to open the static D. Well damn if it wasn't what we had been waiting for. An empty system with 37 sigs. So i jumped in and started scanning for a grav site. Found one quick, got one hulk mining and proceded to scan down the rest of the system. Figured I would bomb out and learn it was a class 5 and null static or something else that would prevent a move to a "vacation property". Well got the 4 outbound holes scanned down and they were B274, Z647, N062, and D382. Best guess was this was a BZ static combo. Not good for permenant home, but damn fine for a vacation site.
All told there were 15 ladar, 8 grav, 3 mag, and 6 radar, and 5 unknown (including the K162 i created).
So figure I need to make sure of at least the B274 static so I close the hole and yes its a static. Go for vacation home.
So figures its a night I am on solo, so I start the setup of the Medium POS, while at the same time closing the D382 and N062 holes. Got the D382 closed, but left the N062 just critical (first attempt at a 3Bkg hole, well except for that one drunk night in college, and really she wasn't that big).
So finally at about 2 hours past my intended play time I had the Medium online with 1 Corp hanger up, the hole as secure as possible, and a few ships in system, along with about 4 rambling corp emails notifying people what to do.
We are excited at the chance to mine to our hearts content and even more so at the opportunity to refine in k-space at 100%. Here's to hoping for a safe week of cruching ABC ores.
P.S. on the recruitment front we have added 2 peeps and are still looking for a few more. In game channel "Life in the Hole"
Assault Frigates - Squeezed Out of the Meta - The main problem with Assault Frigates is nothing to do with the ship class itself directly, but more a problem with the overall meta and realities of EVE ...
