Dev Blog &Twitter Wars FTW

Posted in Uncategorized on July 31, 2012 by shaleelianne

Today, CCP Punkturis announced in her dev blog that rigs saved in fittings will now be fit to ships. We will be given a question to verify that we do want to fit rigs- though we will be able to tick off that question from popping up every time after that.

Secondly, cap boosters and ammo will be loaded if saved in your fittings. Awesome, right?

Also, there’s a new tweek that will load all of the mods that you have skills for instead of how it was before, where it would refuse to load anything from your fitting if you couldn’t use a particular mod.

Thank you Punkturis for all of your hard work, it is greatly appreciated!

I really love these new changes because I am one of the people who fit ships for my corp. It is time-consuming and this will make it a whole lot easier!

These new changes brought about a new discussion on Twitter about having a –buy the whole fitting – button.

I replied that I think in theory it is a great idea but that in practice not so much.

A heated debate ensued!

Honestly, I do think a -buy the whole fitting– button is a good idea. It would make mass buying easier. I’m pretty certain that I’ve sat in Amarr bitching about that exact thing, that there should be a way to buy everything at once. I know I have.

However, what I pointed out on Twitter that got people’s tempers flaring for whatever reason is that, it’s EVE, and that button will probably go mostly unused because there are too many douches who will go to great extremes to fuck something useful up.

What I imagine happening is something like:

Random dude buys up all the 1mil mods of common X fitting. He remarkets them for 10mil. Now your ship is heaps more expensive. The window is going to say ‘buy this at X amount?’ and you’re going to click ‘nah’. And then you’re going to individually go thru and buy all the things except for the bloated priced mod.

I can even imagine people with grudges going to extremes, stalking your loss mails, going to your market hubs and mucking around with the things you buy just so you cannot use this button!

The only way the -buy all the things– button will be useful (in my opinion!!) is if you are allowed to untick the bloated price item, but still buy all the other things at once. Like a warning would pop up stating ‘X’ item is one gazillion ISK more than it should be, remove?

Yup, I think that would work.

What do you guys think? Are you in favor of the -buy it all– button??

Battle for Kourmonen

Posted in Uncategorized on July 10, 2012 by shaleelianne

Battle for Kourmonen
– by Almity 

Minmatar and Amarr forces clashed in Kourmonen last night. Amarr intel reported a Minmatar fleet camping gates in mixed ships around Kourm and Kam. Fweddit formed up one fleet while a heavier fleet of armor BC’s was assembled.

The Amarr forces gathered and engaged the Minmatar fleet on the Huola gate in Kourm. Amarr started loosing Battle Cruisers until a cyno went up and Sobnichiz’s Archon jumped in. After the carrier went Triage and started getting reps on the Amarr fleet the battle swung in the combined Amarr forces favor.

The Minmatar soon counter dropped with an Archon of their own. Bahamut420 arrived on field and went Triage and started repping the Minmatar forces. At the same time five Amarr Dreadnoughts undocked from various stations and prepared to cyno into battle. Once the call was given Almity, Shalee Lianne, and Ryven Krennel from Imperial Outlaws jumped in Revelations. RTSAvalanche from TMFED dropped his Phoenix, and Scatha from Moar Tears Alliance brought a Naglafar.

The Archon of Bahamut420 was called primary and melted under the combined firepower of five dreadnoughts. Minmatar warped out and what was left on field was quickly killed off. Good fights were called in local ending a hell of a battle.

Clearing Up Rumors

Posted in Uncategorized on July 6, 2012 by shaleelianne

I wanted to write this to clear up some confusion that’s going around in regards to Susan Black’s post here.

To start with, I do not speak for Amarr militia, only for my corporation.

We are finishing up a corp vote about switching to the Caldari militia for financial reasons. As you all know, being in the Amarr Militia is draining the wallets of a lot of our pilots. In the past we could mission for ISK to provide funds for our pvp.

Since Inferno, being cut off from stations with missioning agents and the tier 1 LP has severely hurt a lot of our members.

But let me be clear. We are not abandoning Amarr. We are not leaving the Amarrian warzone, we will remain in Egghelende where we have been since before Inferno launched.

We will still continue to bring the fight to the Minmatar like we always do.

We are still fighting the Amarr war, but after we switch, we will be rewarded with Caldarian LP.

This was brought up in the Amarrian command channel last night and I mentioned to some guys what we would be doing and why.

Some have decided they might try  it as well, to switch sides in name only but remain in our Amarr/Minmatar  war zone.

If you are an Amarrian CEO or diplomat, do get in touch with either myself or Ryven Krennel so that we can sort out blue standings.
