2022.01.21 20:37 LiberatorPig Old Soldiers Never Die
| For months Ive been docked in Jita. Pirating, fighting, killing and dying is the last thing on my mind when Im warm and cozy, well fed, well loved, watching my seed grow. Its an easy life when the glory has faded and all there is left to do is be a good man and die. Yet a truth a remains. Old soldiers never die. |
New Eden is as familiar to me as any place. I’ve been around it a few times, in all directions, with one intention. Live. Fight. Kill. Die. Repeat. Lets begin.
The Beasts of the South are always a favorite of mine. They’ve held down Deklein as long as I’ve been around. Ive got a few dead clones floating around their Space. During a pass through their asteroid fields I chance upon a lone Procurer. It doesn’t matter how long I’ve been away from the controls. The repetitions are burned into the plasticity of my brain. It does all the right things to defend itself. Drones, Energy Neut, Shield extenders. Had friendlies been nearby perhaps the effort would have been rewarded with a second chance at life. As it was, there was only the two of us. Once all its efforts had been exhausted it went the way of all noble miners, its legs went limp and bowels emptied into the jaws of a hungry pig.
The Vale is an area I once waged a viscous one man campaign against the Lunar and Violent by Design Corps. Nowadays a skeleton crew scours the area for mineral and anomalies. I was excited to find a pack of procurers discreetly mining the once populated system of Q3-BAY. I charged into the pack and drug one down while the rest made a timely escape. In a matter of seconds it was devoured. I looted the corpse and destroyed the rest. It was like it never existed. Where there was once a living breathing procurer, now there was only the vacuum of space and Amoral asteroids.
During another pass through Deklein to stop by the station I use, my intuition tells me to make a quick pass through the fields. This young retriever went from peacefully mining to being wiped into oblivion in a matter of seconds. I didn’t even use my weapon upgrades, it would have been overkill. This was like a farmers wife casually ringing a chickens neck for evening supper. The Capsuleer piloting the retriever informs me that my mother sucked his dogs dick. His exact words not mine. Considering my mother is alive, and that I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, I believe him. I’d prefer not to think about it though.
With all due respect to our Big Brothers from Asia, I call them all Dragons. You ought to know where they dwell. If you don’t, just head east and you’ll find them. I once dedicated a quarter of a year to engaging them every day. One thing I learned is how damn good these guys are. If they lose they sweet talk you into getting yourself killed. Never trust Big Brother Dragon. In this case it was my favorite scenario. I love when ships wait next to stargates. This Dramiel went from peacefully chillin next its hometown stargate to being under heavy attack at point blank range from yours truly. Sometimes in these fight they don’t even get a shot off. This one did, but it was too little too late. In true Dragon form the capsuleer tried to sweet talk me into a trap afterwards. I politely declined. I know their tricks.
System FAT was always a graveyard for me. NOVIS and HAND operated a tight and disciplined defense of the area. I once spent a week in dead space in my Succubus picking off miners only to be killed in the most elaborate trap I’ve ever witnessed. They were really good. Nowadays it’s a ghost town. Theres still some capsuleers making a living out there, and one such interceptor was peacefully camped next to his stargate when I came through. I put it down nice and quick and moved on, not thinking much about it.
Fountain in my opinion is the bread basket of New Eden. My God it’s beautiful out there. Theres just something about it that makes me want to roll down my window each time I pass through, take in a big breath, and smile with a sigh. Others must feel the same way because it has always been thriving with capsuleers. Retribution has held down the western part for as long as I can remember. They have a beautiful industrial operation that is extremely well defended. Ive been chased off numerous times while trying to bring down a big beautiful Coveter. My efforts weren’t entirely in vain when I found a pack of retrievers. Check out their names, its hilarious. Im a huge fan of The Office so these KMs are really special to me and Im grateful for the user who created them.
I ended up having a last shot dog fight with the Condor interceptor. A wise capsuleer warps in at 10, 20, 30 km to prevent landing directly on a defender. In all my repetitions and getting caught for coming it at 0 KM you’d think I’d have learned my lesson. Nope. I came it at 0 and it was waiting for me. THERE WAS A FIREFIGHT. Seriously it came down to last hit and I got it. o7.
I was raiding northern Fountain when a Dramiel starts following me. I recognized the pilot, McBastard, as a former Corp mate of mine. I know he’s good. I go through a few stargates and he stays on me. Im excited because he’s willing to warp in on me at 0, which is exactly the distance I like to fight. I roam with a build to attack miners. I carry in my inventory a specific build to kill faction frigates when a situation like this arises. I switch out my build at a nearby station and move back in. McBastard eagerly continues his pursuit and I end up taking the fight as he warps in on me at 0. So here’s the thing about fighting other veterans. You have to be fucking perfect. So my deadliest range is 5km. When I’m destroying miners that’s my orbit. In fighting other frigates, I do not set an orbit and instead approach at 0 during the fight so as not to lose any distance between us. In this fight I made the decision to orbit instead of approach. My thought was that this was going to be close and I wanted my optimal range. I also believed double webs would keep him firmly in place. In this fight I set an orbit and it was favorable until the the Dramiel created distance. Heres another reason I like setting approach to 0 instead of orbit. NO MORE ADJUSTMENTS ARE NEEDED. Frigate fights last seconds and having to redirect is done furiously fast. In this case, as I went to select approach I accidentally unlocked instead. Devastating. Even more devastating was my own foolish decision to try and target again instead of withdrawing. It came down to last shot and this time I was the one on the receiving end.
McBastard is a great sportsman and capsuleer. He sends me humble message and in return gets to hear my sad salty excuse for losing. At the end of the day victory is based in execution, and McBastard executed and therefore was the better pilot.
Untold here is countless encounters with miners and combatants who got away or were well defended. I’m grateful to still have a strong community to go up against in glorious battle. You are all incredible. Thank you for all the shout outs in local. It brings a smile. o7

2022.01.21 20:37 Creepy-Soil Help! I'm summoned for jury duty
Wow, A DAY BEFORE I return to campus I get a jury summon from my county circuit court. AND it's Friday afternoon so there's no way I can contact the court office until Monday morning. What a dick move RNGesus.
It's scheduled on weekday in February so there's no way I can attend the court without missing my classes and probably one or two midterm, especially I will be taking 17+ credits with parttime campus job. I realized MD doesn't grant special exemption from jury duty for fulltime students and probably have to make an appeal and hope my judge is having a good day to grant me an unlikely exemption.
Does anyone have an experience like this? How do I get out of jury duty as a full-time student? I heard horror stories where the asshole MD judges give no excuse for students despite their real concerns like missing finals.

2022.01.21 20:37 VoltsIsHere The 7.62x51 caliber needs a rebalance
I never realized how odd the stats were of the 7.62x51 caliber was until today, the balancing just doesn't make sense. M62 ($9) only has 4 more penetration than M80 ($3), and one less damage. Three times the price for very little difference, plus M62 is a tracer round so it can give away your position. M61 ($19) has 64 penetration, meaning it will penetrate any armor in the game basically guaranteed, and M993, which is found in raid only, has 70 penetration, which literally guarantees it will penetrate any gear in the game in one shot.
M80 is able to be used at such a low level, yet performs so much better than other ammos at the same stage in the wipe, personally I think it should be slightly nerfed, M62 be buffed, and M61 should be slightly nerfed and decreased in price.
This is coming from someone who has 2850hrs and almost strictly use this caliber.
Here's what I suggest.
M80: 41 Penetration -> 40 Penetration | Price increase from 3$ to 4$
M62: 44 Penetration -> 47 Penetration | Price increase from $9 to $10
M61: 64 Penetration -> 58 | Damage increase to 72 from 70 | Price decrease from $19 to $17
M993: Keep the stats the same, but add a barter or a craft for it. I suggest 2 green gunpowder, 2 red gunpowder, and one TNT brick to craft 60 bullets. This would cost about ~155k roubles to craft, meaning roughly 2650 roubles per bullet, which compared to M61 at ~2375, it seems to be a good comparison.

2022.01.21 20:37 noxioussaint I’m the joke.
I have nothing to say. But I need to say something. I feel like you said it’s all… you speak for yourself. But it turns out, for all you would talk (and you’d go on and on), you never really said a thing. Which, in the end, made sense. But at the time?….
What was I thinking? Was I thinking at all? Was I thinking too much? I thought you were enough. But truly, I have had enough. I just couldn’t tell the difference. …I didn’t want to.
What were you? What weren’t you? I thought you were everything. But if all you were was inside my head… did that make it self-love?
If it was… Then how could I hate you, Without hating myself?
Ugh. Did I ask for you? Did I ask for the hell that you put me through?
Is it because I laughed at the prospect of heaven? Because I thought the joke was the idea that I deserved anything less than your punchline? I am the joke. I am an act. They all stand while I sit. I stand for nothing. You stand for me. You cut off my legs. Crippled me with love, so you could be the one to heal me. That’s what you do, right? After all, it’s in the name.
Is that the joke?
Why aren’t you laughing?
…I thought it was funny.
I’ll shut up.

2022.01.21 20:37 DM_ME_YOUR_NUTSACK Tip: If you don't want to forget taking care of something (bills, trash, whatever), put it directly into your way.
Need to take the trash out? Bag it and put it right in a doorway you frequently pass through. A bill you have to pay? Place it on the middle of the floor in your bedroom. Make yourself step around/over it and tell yourself that this is place you chose for that item to dwell until you address it.
The idea is to subvert and challenge the "out of sight, out of mind" thinking. You can avoid taking care of the issue all you want, but you still have to physicaly step around it.
I used to bag my trash and keep it in corners or against walls. It really encourages "piling up" and found that placing them more in my direct sight and paths helps me a lot to just take care of them.
Edit: plz don't do this if you're hoarding lol
