venge roam

The last couple of weeks has been slow for me kill wise, have died a few times getting into fights I shouldn't havent started like this However tonight my illustrious leader rixx fancied taking a mwd venge out for a spin, now a venge is one of my fave ships ski grabbed one and out we went and we with a couple of the other stay frosty lunitics got some great kills.. it started with this enyo, the faction NOS was a nice drop..then we found this algos.. we killed him twice I think but I missed the other kill. Lastly I almost soloed this nice Talwar, rixx arrived just before he popped.. then I did something stupid (ish) we found a incursus at a plex, rixx and I warped in and started eating it, then a punisher landed, the incursus was almost in structure so I peeled off to grab the punisher..what I didn't realize is rixx had burned out his launchers..then a Tristan landed as well..I didn't realize till rixx popped he hadn't killed the incursus. Saddly the 3 frigs managed to pop me before I could finish the punisher. Can't seem to find the loss mail but will link it later. Was a good fight but I was gutted the faction NOS in the hold dropped too :( Still was a fun Friday afternoon. /astral

cutting teeth

Ok so got on a kill mail for stay frosty today..was roaming about looking for some poor fool to fight in a maldiction when I heard 1 system over were some nice targets. I warped over and did a little digging and found my friends were getting ready to kill a caracal at a large plex. Being in a inty I decided to go for tackle, and ran in guns blazing..

Of course I couldn't break the tank of the caracal but I did hold it still till back up arrived. I warped out at 50% structure but we killed it. It's slowly coming back to me.

A Humble Realisation

I used to consider myself a fair pvp'er. The last week since I joined Stay frosty have mainly been moving some ships out to hevrice and doing a little Roaming in between, and I have come to realise I may have been ok a couple of years ago..the game has changed some what and I am found lacking.
Since joining I have had only 3 fights, lost 2 and drew one.  The draw was my vengeance Against a stabber..I could'nt close and he couldn't break my tank with his tracking. My first loss was a rifter, was a fair fight and I was soundly beaten. Second loss was a slicer, landed far too close to a incursus and didn't make range fast enough..was a little bad luck and a little bit me not reacting as fast as I should.

So it seems I am not the player I once was. But then I'm not the player I once was...

Before I couldn't afford to replace my losses a always flew on a shoe string budget, nowdays I have isk.. not billions but I'm not skint. And I have several stable incomes supporting Astral. Guess all there is to it is to keep plugging away until I get good again, or better at least.

And my early impressions of stay frosty..rixx was right.
Awesome corp and a great bunch of pilots.

A collection of thoughts.

Do you ever feel like everything your thinking  is overly complicated?
my thoughts at the moment is that exploration is no longer viable as a solo profession in eve that can match lvl 4's for isk, that said I dont want to leave lowsec.
I could go to null and be a drone for some alliance but thats not really me also gun turret diplomacy posted a elleqent post wich pretty much sums up my experience with null.
I could go back to faction warfare but found that didnt hold my interest long.
which only really leaves piracy. there are 2 corps I concidered asking to join, stay frosty run by rixx javix over at Evoganda, or go back to fla5hy red. however my isk is still primarly generated by astral, if he drops back to flashy (again) it makes it harder to get the isk I need to buy shiney death now I am thinking make more money to buy a plex to duel train vespa so she can run lvl 4's but that could take a couple of months and a billion isk i could use to buy ships...

my head hurts.
