In case you hadn’t noticedPosted: 2010-04-18 Filed under: eveonline | Tags: reorg 7 Comments
In case you’re one of the few people who read this blog, yet don’t employ tracking agents on all my chars to fervently follow my every move, k162space and the group of people we tend to socialize with have moved out of our C6 and into our corp’s null space, where we intend to mine the heck out of anything that looks at us funny.
Reasons behind this include:
1. At present, we lack the manpower to clear C6 combat sites, and don’t have enough people in the same timezone to clear the static C5 sites with any respectable isk/hour. This means that when a WH grav (appears maybe once every week and a half) vanishes (4 days after activation max), we’re left twiddling our thumbs while the null division of the corp fills corp chat with “omg these rocks are huge lulz wut u guyz doin?”
2. With the market dropping remarkably from influxes from null and such, having more access to better ores cannot be a bad thing.
3. By renting from Atlas, we guarantee neighbors with more developed industrial hubs, making them a much better candidate for AFKing SB pilots.
4. I managed to convince Blake that “dirty donut” was a bad idea to call the move operation, and “K162space” as a blog name does not necessarily constitute living in WH, but can apply to simply frequently using them. Our corp’s “WH more frequently” space upgrade thingy should facilitate this, as well as the ATLAS renter’s “What the heck are wormholes? Sure, you can scan for the things, just stay away from our plexes” mindset.
I’m serious here, I was moving an orca through a highsec-C5-C5-C5-null route, and when I come to the null WH, there’s a blue punisher and drake floating. Warning them about trying to run C5 sites in BC or smaller hulls, I am immediately screamed at to
Null inhabitant->”OMFG DON’T JUMP DONTDONTDONT”
Me->”Why shouldn’t I jump?”
Null inhabitant->”THE WH IS UNSTABLE”
(I check, “this wormhole has not yet has it’s mass disrupted by ships, this WH is beginning to decay and shouldn’t last another day”)
Me->”What makes you say that?”
Null inhabitant->”OMG DUDE THE WH IS CALLED “UNSTABLE WH”, LET US GET OUT BEFORE YOU RISK IT”
(Again, C5 connecting WH.)
So, high hopes to still run WH sites and such, with local chat(strange and unfamiliar concept), while not facing impending doom from CCRES or slightly less doom from Aperture Harmonics, who recently asked Raath (www.Staticmapper.com) to take http://www.staticmapper.com (for all your WH static database needs) down.

So, ya, looking forward to fun times actually doing something other than mining when there is nothing to mine. Like…um….
And the blog suddenly became boring, 😦 Sorry, but WH’ing made the blog special, sad to see it turn into this.
Will still lurk around a little bit hoping to see some great wormhole adventures unfold.
This was about three weeks ago, btw.
And as a general statement, I thought that people came here to laugh and read about failures, not “we are in W-space. Yayyy”
If you want, I’ll make it a policy to never mention where events take place and you can squint and pretend we’re in a C6, doing the exact same thing.
“I was running a nullsec pipe on my way to our current exit exit”
Hell, no-one seemed to notice/care when I complained about the route (from our nullsec) to a highsec island. If I had said “BTW, the route went to my home nullsec system, not my home C6”, would the reading experience be horribly defiled by the very mention of nullsec, dropped down an ashen pit to burn eternally and dragging this blog along with it?
Sorry to hear about the move, I know the feeling of being stuck surrounded by isk but unable to get it, due to a lack of pilots.
What is the opposition to Static Mapper all about? It’s good info to have, but not the kind of info that would give you a huge advantage over any other wormhole corps.
To me it appears that they feel that if too many people have the information then they’ll find it hard to keep filling up their killmail board. Lets face it, if you open up a system and you’re looking for a certain system with a certain exit type, you’ll just keep closing exits till you get it. This interferes with their plans as if you don’t use the site you’re left bumbling round in the dark leaving an exit open for them to infest. More clued up WH dwellers who know where they’re going makes it harder for them to PVP if you keep closing the door before they can call in the dreads and carriers to take down your POS.
Wow! What a bunch of women lol.
What region are you renting in? I’m enjoying Insmother these days.
