Profitable Paranoia and a Rollercoaster

I have come to the conclusion that the area of Null security space that I’m in is very nearly deserted. I played from 6:00pm PST to 11:00PM, a total of about 5 hours, having fun the entire time.

There were a few situations that I found rather nerve wracking.. A player appeared in Local, so I spammed the directional scanner like mad. I saw a “Rapier” appear, and a new item on my overview called a “Cynosural Field”, which I discovered is a beacon of sorts allowing capitals to jump from system to system without a warp gate. This scared me, so I found myself a nice quiet corner of the system and spammed the Dscan some more until the pilots started disappearing from local chat. I later saw a player enter the system I was scanning in and deploy his scanning probes. A short time later, he disappeared. All the while I bounced back and forth between planets. About an hour later, I almost got caught by another frigate that landed nearly on top of me, but I saw him enter local and was ready to warp by the time he could arrive. I think I’m going to wear my tinfoil hat permanently in this game. Paranoia doesn’t necessarily pay, but it certainly helps you keep what you have!

I keep thinking I’m going to get caught, and I still have no doubts that will happen.. but I’m beginning to wonder WHEN… I bought two more Imicus scanning ships just in case, but I can’t find the items I need to fit it. Maybe I need to switch to a new area if I want constant excitement, but for now I’m happy with the income… I just need to figure out how to get my items to the market hub… especially considering Signal Cartel (the corporation I joined) is currently under a War Declaration by a Pirate corp… (Named P I R A T. lol)

Total gains:
4.9 million ISK in wallet
+120 million in items obtained tonight.
+36 million in items obtained in the previous night,
-1 million for 2x Imicus scan ships

If I were to get all my items to the market and sell them right now, I’d be sitting at 159,900,000 ISK….

Goal: 1.2 billion ISK
Gained: ~160 million ISK
To go: 1 billion 40 million ISK.

Smooth sailing so far… but I have a LONG way to go.

  1. These kinds of posts make me smile. Would be an interesting post to hear what all you did to learn about EVE before you joined the game….because I’m going to start pointing other newbros at your blog as an answer to the question of “What do I do? Where do I go?” 😛

    1. I think I’ll actually write a post about that. I think I’m in a bit of a more unique position in this regard as I had quite a bit of exposure to the game before actually starting to play. Thanks for the idea!
