As our hole has all but bottomed out (the result of "visiting" too many things in the beginning), we have been forced to turn to our static Class 2 for things to do. I realize now that this is the way it should be.
So last night our first neighbor of the night was a system with 2 POS's (but only 1 online), no sign of activity and a lot of signatures, but few anomolies. Is this a corp that just knows how to run the anomolies and not work the signatures? Well any way, we fired up the probers and quickly found 3 grav sites. Getting our resources mounted, we hit the ABC's of our neighboring system and cleaned out the cream of the crop roids from a few belts.
With 5 Hulks mining and a Commander in a Myrm giving cycle time bonuses, it did not take long. Also with only a lone rigged Mammoth hauling we also quickly fell behind and had a number of cans in space. We finished the night with a single Orca run to clean up the remaining 6-7 cans. Never saw a single probe, or hint of another capsuleer.
So I think our small corp has passed another W-Space growth point. We are ready and willing to raid our neighbors cupboard for goods. Yes, it feels safer to stay within our system and the safety of the POS, but I don't think a Wormhole can sustain a small corp for long. So as we now wait for our system to rebound I am confident we will work it smarter and also in a way that still emphasizes the importance of raiding our Class 2 Static.
Overall, I think this also shows the importance of the Static Wormholes when seleceting a W-Space home.
