The returning war - Day 1

Day 1

Today it was the big day we finally we got a war! Personally I love wars, the adrenaline, the precision, the tactics and especially the smell of burning ships.

Because it was the first day I thought to take is cheap and see what the enemy will be doing. I got in my Rifter a few miniguns and tackling equipment will do the job. The war started late, we got the rights to shoot at 22:50, a few minutes before time we gathered at a spot and waited for everyone to come. Than we got the last minute intel. and we where search the system. Meanwhile in local the CEO of the enemy corporation was smack talking about how good he is and that we are bad. But he didn’t want to fight us and stayed at his save spot. After camping a station for 45 minutes we decided to go and look in a other system. Also in the other system there was nothing. We regrouped and waited for orders. Eventually we decided to head to there HQ and search there, there HQ is in low sec but we took the risk. But than when we where heading to there HQ we found a war target.

It was a drake he just jumped trough the gate and we where sitting on the other side waiting to jump but then we saw him we didn’t jumped but attacked him. Trough my speakers I can hear the fleet commander say: ‘’Point I want a Point!!!’’ So I turned my afterburner on a flow at full to the drake. When I got there I switched on my tackling equipment and a few seconds later he couldn’t go any where, also a few of my fleet members also tackled him. With all our guns we shot on him and in less than half a minute we where trough his tank. The armor and structure where going even faster before I knew it his ship was gone. Than I saw it: his pod… Immediately everyone locked his pod and started shooting it almost looked like instant pop. When I got back to my sense I check my mail and yes there it was, my first kill mail of a pod!

Trough my speakers I heard everyone saying ‘’good job’’, ‘’that’s how we do it!’’ After the short celebration we waited for orders. The fleet command decided to got back. When we where heading back a few jumps before our HQ we heard one of our fleet members say that he found on in our home system. On our own we warped as fast as we could to the location when I got there my wish got fulfilled.

It was Minmatar Battleship Tempest model. It was there all alone hanging in front of a station, all alone. Because he was shooting on of our fleet members he couldn’t dock and I think we scared him a little when he saw our fleet warping in. Again we used all our guns and drones this time it was a little harder than the drake, but we got him down again when his tank was down it almost looked like instant pop. We tried to lock his pod but it was to fast, again we celebrated out kill. It was getting late so I decided to dock and get some sleep.
It was a great day just one of us got killed and we killed even more enemy’s also we destroy way more isk than they did.

The returning war - Day 0

Day 0

For a few days I heard some rumors that there will be a war. Today when a woke up I check my email and saw the following message form Concrod: ‘’ has declared war on . Within 24 hours fighting can legally occur between those involved.’’ Directly I went to my chat channel and asked some information and yes there will be a war within 24 hours.

I got in my mammoth after blaming Scotty and loaded it with some of my ships. Than I flow to different solar systems surrounding our home base. I dropped the ships with there fittings and in every station I dropped enough ammo for all the ships that where stocked there. After that I came back to our home base and assembled a few fittings for my cruisers and than I also flow the cruisers to the desired solar system to a random station. (Because my mammoth can’t fit 2 or more cruisers)

When I was done placing my ships I was check my mail for some info about the war targets. I check a few website about them and than I thought about our first war, it was also again them. But it was a lot harder because we also got there alliance on our teeth. The rest of the day didn’t do much just flying around and talking to people than I went to bed and thought about tomorrow.

Here is my entry for the contest ''which game mechanic would you most like to see removed completely from EVE and why?''


‘’Autopilot deactivated’’ I wake up and see that I’m in zero sec, no concord, no justice, no friendly’s. I select a asteroid belt and press the ‘’warp’’ button, I see my ship aligning and after a while it starts to warp. I see all kinds of planets and stars it looks like Christmas lights but this are fast movie Christmas lights. When I’m out of warp I look around to see if I can find any rats, sadly I can’t find anything so I select another asteroid belt and press the warping button again.

While I’m in warp I can see that more pilots are entering the system, I open my search tab and check the background of the pilots to see if there are any pirates around. While I’m searching I got a messaging popping-up: ‘’Scaim is inviting you for a fleet invite’’, yes I think my allies are here so I press ‘’yes’’ and keep continuing searching for the other pilots.

Than I see it, my worst fear ever: a whole corporation is hunting me. Fast I warp to a station but 3 enemy pilots are camping the station luckily I warped at 0km so I can dock ‘’Yes!’’ I thing by myself. But than it happens: I’m looking at my screen and I think ‘’this can’t be happening!’’ I try it again but it doesn’t help. ‘’Now what I think? I’m stuck outside the station with 3 enemy pilots!’’ I scatter all my courage and try it again…

I think this happened to all pilots ones. If it’s a station a gate, when you are trying to enter your ship or something else everything has the same problem: Scotty! He is the most annoying thing/human/robot in the whole eve universe! I know that without him Jita and Rens will be a mess but can’t it be a bit different or only use Scotty in a few systems? Because who needs a irritating bastard in 0.0/low sec that only helps you to die?

My first point of why Scotty should be completely removed is because he is really and I mean really annoying, it’s just like a little kid that smashes your stuff until it breaks. If you never ever encountered this problem let me give you and example:

You just brought yourself a pc, not a regular one but one that you build on your own. You worked really hard to understand tutorials so you can build the computer and you saved money for years to buy it, when its finally done some annoying kid comes by and smashes your pc to bits. Now you are really, really angry so what do you do? You shout at the kid or perhaps kick him but no! You can’t do it because he runs away to his home so you can never punish him or ask him why he did it! And this is not everything a few months later you got yourself a new pc and it happens again. Some kid comes it smashes your pc kid runs away you can’t do anything about it. It’s even the same kid! And now think that this happens every single month and you can’t do anything about it…

Yes people that’s how it feels! You are mining for 3 months to get your Battleship and some kind of thing (Yes I consider Scotty as a ‘’thing’’) won’t let you dock/jump so your ship gets destroyed! Than you are really furious, you want to kick Scotty trough the airlock or just jetcan him so he will die in an hour but no, you can’t.

I don’t know why in the name of god you can’t jetcan/kill/punish Scotty. Scotty is a real criminal he has tons and tons of murders on his name and even more vandalism. Also I think even the npc’s don’t know how to get to Scotty because if the knew the concord will have Scotty arrested a long time ago. So maybe even the concord and the other characters also have trouble with Scotty? If a concord wants to jump to arrest someone they get the same message if they just joined a fleet? So the concord are also like damn you Scotty!

So I think we all can now agree that Scotty is bad, really bad. He just irritates people and he also is a criminal. But before we all jetcan Scotty we will have to find a solution for Jita…. I know what you are thinking. ‘’O crap o crap! Obelisk is bumping my rifter!’’ ‘’I’m stuck in a Obelisk help me!!!’’ Yeah we have to find a solution to that maybe a female thing, just in Rens and Jita that’s not so annoying as Scotty and people will be nicer to her. (Maybe we can call her…. Zoey?)
So this story is coming to an ending. Maybe somewhere in the future this will actually happen if not we just have to live with the thing that punish us all.
