And so it seems that the Ancient Gaming Noob is getting all the screenshots and battle reports that used to be the bread and butter of my blog. This is partly because of my timezone, but also partly due to Real life issues that have come up recently.
Please take the time to read TAGN’s posts on the Delve war:
Also of note is Jester Treck’s blog posts on the reasoning behind the war and musings on why we’re fighting at all:
While I’ve been a bit active, My timezone has mostly been gate camps and small harrassment fleets and I’ve gotten no kills due to insta-cane killmail whores (note to self: build and fly an instacane for killmail whoring). Of note, I am now able to fit tech II bubbles on my Onyx, meaning that I’m approximately 42% more effective as a HIC pilot now. This makes me happy as I sometimes found myself with an inferiority complex vs light dictors who’s bubbles are bigger than a HIC IV, bubble IV pilot.
On another note – it seems merlins are the flavor of the month with the current alliance tournament. As my RL friend is getting into nullsec shortly I gave him a bit of practice with the actions of tackling and burning towards an opponent. Also we had a bit of discussion about the advantages/disadvantages of short/long range guns on a tackler as well as scrams vs disruptors, whether to fit a web, etc. quite an educational session, even for me as I know a bit of theory but have only minimal tackle frigate experience. I also tried out the new anciliary shield boosters, using Jester Treck’s double 150 merlin fit here
Anyway, I think I’ll be able to get some time over the next week to get really stuck into more fleets and hopefuly bring some good stories. Perhaps I’ll have to adjust what I’m looking for in terms of blog material.
What aspect of nullsec would you like to hear more about? Suggestions anyone?
