Lol

League Of Legends.

The new game that I'm addictive too, and the main reason why I havent been playing EvE much lately. I'm on a kinda semi break.

Alot of people in Python have been playing it recently, and as a result our EvE corp activity has dwindled abit. But Python is more than just a corp. We play alot of other games together.

Anywho he games alot of fun (tho very harsh a newbie, tho if you played HON or DOTA its suposed to be alot easier to pick up, I never played either).

So if you too are bored of getting blobbed by russians, give this game a try.

Oh...

and its FREE TO PLAY!

DRAKES

CAPS LOCK ENGAGED.

EWR9BU-BRUBR9VBUHNEWRP9V[BN9EWRUGVEW

FUCK DRAKES. THEY ARE THE MOST BORING, UNIMAGINATIVE, STUPID SHIPS IN THE ENTIRE GAME. THEY ARE MEATSHEILDS WITHOUT THE MEAT. THEY ARE LIKE SAFETY BELTS, IM SURE THEY HAVE THIER USES, BUT THEY SURE ARENT USED FOR FUN.

I HATE EVERY SINGLE PERSON (CAP LOCK DISENGAGED, except you larsypoo, CAPS LOCK ENGAGED) WHO FLY DRAKES. GET SOME STYLE. GET SOME SENSE OF FUN. IT IS NOT FUN TO SIT IN A BELT AT ZERO, TANKING AND NOTHING ELSE. IT IS NOT FUN HAVING TO SHOOT A DRAKE WITH BOUNCERS.

DRAKES ARE NOT FUN. DRAKE PILOTS ARE NOT FUN. I HATE YOU ALL.

RAGE

EINVWPVUNWRVUNWR9VWNRV

Ahhh, thats better.

EPIC VICTORY OF EPIC PROPORTIONS

It is today. The most glorious of days, that The Python Cartel has succeeded where many of failed. Many corps and alliances have tried to achieve what we have achieved today. For 3 years we have tried, and today we reached our goal.

No, we did not take over an entire 0.0 region. We didn't kill a Mothership with a bunch of Rifters, neither did we crush one of our bitter enemies under our pink snakeskin boots. No, none of those things. What we accomplished was of much greater significance.

For today.... we HOTDROPPED a BANTAM, mining in a belt in MARA.

GLORIOUS!

How to lose a two billion isk fleet?

Easy.

Make me FC and this happens! BEHOLD!

It started off a nice little armor hac gang. It would of been abit bigger if the people who signed up for the op actualy showed up. But this is Python afterall.

We ended up rolling around FW land, trying to goad people into a fight. They wouldnt fight us 1-1, not even 2-1 with bigger ships, instead, they fight us 3-1 with Carriers and ECM.

We even had our scout see the massive gang massing on the gate nearby, and we saw they had a Carrier and several battleship in system... but I told everyone to stick around anyway. Tonight we was guna get a fight. Win or Lose.

So 40 minutes of waiting for the chumps to get thier shit together.... the fight started! It started pretty well too, we dropped the Scorpion and a Myrmidon pretty fast. But in came the ECM and in came the Carrier. With our two gaurdians perma jammed we didnt last very long.

After talking to one of the guys afterwards, apparently they didnt mean to blob us, it was just a coincidence.

Gallabella > faction warfare accidently blobbing?

Of course. Faction war never blob on purpose. Where is the fun in that?

Best part was the comments after:

Knutsov > thats why you fly with ecm
Knutsov > cause eveyone else is using it

Helicity Boson > way to give them nice kills

Knutsov > well blame the time
Knutsov > we waited too long tbh

Helicity Boson > tbh i think its fucking retarded to engage suicidally on purpose
Helicity Boson > but hey

Lachesis VII > just seems like we could have been more productive
Lachesis VII > thats all

Kazaji > But skye, even i have to say, that was a bit silly
Kazaji > when we saw local go up by 30

Not everyone was a whiney bitch tho.

Golden Helmet > for HONOR

Jeros Hun > python are spartans
Jeros Hun > they fight to the last man

Angel Petroni > good fight guys.
Golden Helmet > gf
Angel Petroni > Very commendable. You should join the caldari militia and teach them to grow a spine. :D

Sir Juggalo > meh
Sir Juggalo > tbh losing ships is a part of the game if u dont wanna lose it dont leave station

But it was fun. You cant win them all. I just wish more people valued the fun of a fight MORE than the stats on their killboard and the isk in their wallet.

The Great Python Named and Shamed: Vol 1

Hear' ye! Hear' ye!

Attention to all ye' who shalt hear! there hast been a great failure within the ranks of the MIGHTY band of ragtags known to all as the Python Cartel.

It has been decreed that all shalt hear of this failure.

T'was just last night that a Pirate known as Gallabella lost his mighty Ishtar class Assault Cruiser in the line of duty! But oh' the Horror! The Ishtar was fitted with a dishonourable warp stab.

Let it be known that Gallabella shalt not go unpunished! Tis' a crime that deserves justice! and justice shalt be served! In addition to being demoted to deck scrubbing duty, for no less than two months, Gallabella shalt also be receiving many years of hearing the phase "LOL REMEMBER THAT TIME YOU FIT WARP STABS ON YOUR ISHTAR!"

A suitable punishment indeed! May this serve as a warning to all who would fit warp stabs on thier vessels. There can be no greater dishonour!

Banstick

So after going away for a day or two, I come home to find this in my email inbox:

Hi,

This mail is sent to inform you that your EVE Online account ********, has been
suspended in light of EULA violations.

Our END USER LICENCE AGREEMENT and other game policies can be found on this
page: http://www.eveonline.com/pnp/

If you feel the ban is not justified or you have something to add to the matter,
please reply to this mail and we will respond as soon as possible.

Regards,
EVE Online Customer Support

Not cool. I've replied to the petition but I am not expecting much.

I've heard off one of the few Pythons that still talk to me, that Spectre has also
been banned for account sharing.
Nice way to sort it out CCP, just ban EVERYBODY

Saturday, 14 August 2010

All your alliance belongs to us.

Hi there.

As you might be aware. I stole all of Spectres Isk and most of his ships. One thing I forgot to mention when I told everyone this... I also stole his shares.

Now Python had 3 main Directors. Me, GH and Spectre. We each had roughly 1/3 of the shares, in the off chance one of us disappeared off the face of the earth, or had to take a break, or started being a complete faggot. So by me stealing Spectre's shares, I had the majority of the shares.

This was my insurance, should Golden Helmet try and remove me from the corp (for stealing Spectre's stuff)

Well, Golden helmet did actually disapprove with my theft (no idea why) and he demanded he give it back. Of course, this was out of the question. So we ended up arguing and he told me when he got home he was going to remove me from the corp.

But he didn't know I had Spectre's shares, and when he logged on I immediately clicked the "Run for CEO" button on the corp tab (I like to shove things in peoples faces). This removed GH's CEO capabilities, including his ability to kick me from the corp.

I voted for myself, obviously. and there was no way GH could win. The vote passed a small while agoso... I am now the new CEO of Python and The Jerk Cartel. I honestly still don't know what I am going to do with the alliance, as I didn't really plan that far ahead.


So what should I do with it? Give it away? Give it back to GH? (not likely lol) recruit a bunch of carebears and start running missions? simply disband it? or what?

I'm taking suggestions! give me some ideas!

Friday, 13 August 2010

Fuck you too Spectre.

Firstly, my last post was indeed a troll and I never actually stole anybodies ships. It was all just a big joke and I'm surprised so many people believed it. I had quite a few messages in-game about how I'm such a bad person. But the jokes on you!

Anyway, after reading this post I feel as tho I have to get some facts straight.

First and foremost. Yes I did steal all his isk. yes I did steal all his ships. Overall I got about 3 billion isk (when I sell the ships anyway) and I have no intention of giving them back.

Why would I do this to someone I have known so long? Because Spectre is a drunken, egotistical, moron who contributed nothing to Python. Everyday he would log on vent, pissed out his brain, declaring how awesome he was and how shit we all were.

After a lengthy argument the other night over vent I decided to take matters in my own hands. I still had his password and account details from a long time ago, so I waited until I knew he was at work (and unable to log EvE) and simply just logged his account and took everything I could, as quick as I could.

I then sent Spectre an email telling him why, as I wanted to be upfront about what I did. I was nice enough to leave him 0.69 isk tho, so he should count himself lucky.

Quit your whining Spectre. This is EvE, getting fucked over is part of the game, and you sir... just got fucked over.

NOT SO AWESOME ANYMORE EY???

GOODBYE PYTHON! THANKS FOR THE STUFF!

So, Python has moved home once again, and as usual I was demoted to being one of the Carrier bitches for the day. After a good few hours of moving people ships my hangar looked like this:


After much deliberation I decided to quit Python and steal everyone ships. I still don't know how much I made, but dam, I should be sorted for at least a couple of weeks! At the rate I lose ships anyway.

On a completely unrelated note: Anybody recruiting? got decent corp assets they want to let me have access too? I'm trustworthy, helpful and extremely active! Send me a mail in game.

Thanks!

I'm a whiney bitch and I'm taking a break.

Yesterday I undocked in my Sentinel. The past few days I've been able to fly it properly (EWAR frig 4 recently finished) and I've been extremely eager to try it out. I've seen alot of people fly it really well. Be it by taking out larger ships, larger gangs, or just being able to screw over an enemy gang with Tracking Disruptor's and Nuets.

I've also seen people fly it badly. Hi Inertial. Hi Blammo.

Anywho, as I said, I've been wanting to test this ship out the past few days. I've spent my time roaming 30-50 jumps through the most busiest systems in EvE only to find one thing.

FUCKING PUSSIES.

Nobody wants a fair fight. Hell nobody wants a slightly uneven fight. I saw a Crusader, Retribution and a Dramiel RUN from my Sentinel today, and the day before that I saw a COMMAND SHIP run from it. Not just any command ship either, it was a bloody Nighthawk.

The only person I've managed to kill was some guy in a Hurricane ratting in a belt. And while the Sentinel did perform admirably I just want a proper fight (He had killed most of my drones with his double webs, and I had forgot to load tracking scripts... so I had to call in backup). A fight like you always used to get in the old days if you roamed enough. One where its just two guys, looking for abit of fun and not just a killmail... anyone else remember that?

Nowadays, low sec is full of Faction war. High security status PvP'ers who never leave the safety of the sentry guns, and people who just hunt for Killmails by sticking 50 T2 cruisers on a guy in a Rupture.

I've always liked soling, I find it relaxing and kinda fun. But I think its time we called it. In low sec... Soloing is dead.

Then there is the news (.pdf file) that Low sec will not be getting looked at for at least 18 months and that CCP will be spending all our cash on Dust and Incarna. Which nobody really wants anyway.

Well, maybe Incarna. Walking around in stations will be pretty cool I guess. But there is alot more pressing issues that need fixing first.

Fix the game we pay for CCP, not some turd thats probably going to fail anyway.

So this is me signing out for a break. Again. I will still be playing EvE, but not as much as normal, which means my blog post will dwindle abit, and my PvP video will be... delayed. But I have got a little footage! So its definitely going to be out someday!

Your top 5 ships... ever!

So after reading Mail Lites blog post, I've decided to do something similar. These are my favourite ships in EvE:

#5


The Rapier/Huginn

I used to fly this every single time on a roam. Its just so dam awesome. Its mostly used as a scout/tackle ship and it pairs very very well with an Arazu/Lachesis. I like the green engine exhausts on the Huginn, and I wish CCP put them on the Rapier.

The Rapier is flown by our super efficient scout Necio. Some say he's actually a Rapier IRL.

#4

The Crusader

I haven't got to fly this ship much yet, as I was only able to get in it two days ago. But so far its been pretty cool, its a great tackler, its speedy, and it looks god-dam-sexy.

I have always wanted to fly one after seeing Golden Helmet fly one back in the old days of Python. He used to fly nothing but Crusaders. Did I say fly? I meant, he used to die in nothing but Crusaders.

#3


The Sabre

Its basically a shiny Thrasher on steroids, but its one of the most fun ships in the game at the minute. Its fast, has huge alpha (when fitted with arties) and looks like a mini Cyclone. I actually fly these in low sec, fitted with no tank, just arties and speed. Their great, but cost a bomb... so I don't fly them as much as I'd want too.

#2


The Tempest

Awesomest of the awesome its the Tempest at #2. This is my most used ship and I use it for literally everything. Its just so versatile! You can fit it for Sniping, DPS, Nano, Passive shield tank, Passive armor tank with RRs, active shield tank, active armor tank AND you can PvE in it. You just never know what to expect from a Tempest

And it has sails. Every pirate needs sails.

#1 THE BESTEST SHIP OF THE BEST BESTEST BEST EVER IN THE WHOLE WORLD OF EVE EVER.


The Tempest Fleet Issue.

Of course! The only ship that could possibly be better than the Tempest is another Tempest! With improved sails and even more rust... it is to me: The Greatest ship in EvE!

Size matters

Behold, the biggest penis in the Galaxy, with a girth of over 50km wide and a length of 200km (including the balls!).

Thanks to Golden Helmet for not ADD-ing out and ERECTING such a display of Python spirit.




Tickets to visit this spectacular monument are now on sale. For only £1million isk, made payable directly to "The Python Cartel." (don't forget the . ), you can gaze in awe and wonder at this magnificent sight.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity! It wont be long till the fascist Dev's at CCP dissemble this mighty monument to the male reproductive organ.

DISCLAIMER
The payment of one million isk must be made upon entering Resbroko. Failure to do so will result in your ship being targeted and maybe destroyed.

Oh, and even if you do pay for tickets. Your ship will also probably be targeted... and maybe destroyed.

SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED.

Saturday, 10 July 2010

Some people dropped points for a target painter, and one of us was actualy flying a Lachesis for the awesome point range.

As always we headed for faction war land in the search of a blob. Our first stop was Auga and.... it was empty.

Our second stop was Houla, where we managed to get a warp in on some Geddon sparing with his friend in a Macherial. The Macherial managed to get out of range, but the Geddon died quickly as he was in low armor thanks to his friend.

We also got into a little fight on the gate where we killed a Stabber and a Crusader. But still, nothing really exciting. So I decided to do our favourite trick to getting a fight. Head to Amamake, smack in local for abit, and hope that someone gets so pissed at us they formed a gang to kill us.

In Amamake we arrived, and the smack began;

40 minutes we waited. 40 minutes of constant smack, and even with 30-50 people in local nobody would fight our 8 man gang sitting in the top belt.

With everybody getting bored we figured we would just head home, where we had heard about a EvE-Uni Carrier sitting outside our home station. For those unaware what EvE Uni is, its basically an EvE training corp. It has alot of members but most of them are clueless with very poorly fit ships. They do seem to throw thier ships at anything that moves (alot like we do) so we thought maybe we could get a decent fight out of them.

We arrived in Resbroko to see a cyno up outside the station. We warped to the cyno, and quickly dispatched the Merlin that was being repped by a Thanatos. I told everyone to just aggress the Thanatos for lulz, and we did. His shield slowly went down and as it was about to enter armor, a Revalation Dreadnought undocked.

"Just Keep moving, it wont be able to track you" said Golden Helmet in his sexy pre-pubescent voice.

We did keep moving, and GH was right! it couldn't really track us. Then to our complete surprise, the Carrier entered Triage! WTF! he wasn't even repping anybody! I decided to get my Niddy and I told everyone else to get in something abit more BEEFY with some Nuetage.

As I undocked I noticed a small local spike of about 5-10, so I decided to not aggress for now. Just in case. Checking scan every few seconds, we saw nothing but a bunch of frigates on scan. I told everyone to keep shooting the Thanny. What would a bunch of Frigs do against BS's with a Carrier repping them?

Then local spiked again.

By 120.

With local now at 150 we decided it would be a very good idea to simply de-aggress. Even if they were in frigates, that is still alot of DEEPS.

They wasn't in frigs tho, they were in BS's, Dreadnoughts, BCs and other assorted ships. When they landed they all began shooting my Carrier. I wasn't aggressed, so I could dock at any time, but I stayed out long enough to keep a few of our guys alive long enough for them to dock. Luckily, they focused most of their attention on me, so it was quite easy.

Our corp docked up and I followed soon after with nearly all my armor on my Carrier blown away.



HOLY BLOB BATMAN! (Thanks Inka for the ss)


All was well. Tho for some reason Super-Jaxx decided to would be a good idea to try and tank 150 pilots with his Ishtar. Needless to say, it didn't end well. He ended up losing his Ishtar.

And his pod.


Twice.


I love you Jaxx.

OH MY GOD! THEY KILLED KENNY. AGAIN.

Past week or so the corp and I have been looking forward to an op that was being arranged on a forums. The idea of the op was simple.

- Get as many people online as possible
- Get everyone in either a Gaurdian, or a remote rep battleship, with lots of ECCM.
- Head to Amamake 3-1 and smack until we got blobbed and killed.

The simple plans are always the best plans, and when the day for the op came, we had 16 corpies and 2 friends of corpies in fleet. This was one of the largest gangs we had ever assembled. And even tho our setup was good, and are fits were awesome... nobody really had much more expectations than getting smashed in the top belt and warping back in our pods.

When we got to Amamake the smack began:

It went on for quite a while, and while I could post the entire log, I dont think I could even fit the log on the front page of my blog. But hopefully you get the idea.

Nonetheless, nobody came to fight us, and after about half an hour of sitting in the top belt, we decided to go with PLAN B, which was to head on down to Huola which is a system near Amamake that houses alot of faction war dudes.

When we reached Houla, our 9000 series scout reported that there was a Mega on the gate we was about to jump through. I figuired I'd jump through first and get a point, and then see if the Mega would agress me, or just simply jump through the gate and get caught by the rest of the gang.

He agressed me back.. I called the guys through... and he died in no less than 5 seconds. Meh... a kill is a kill.

We sat in Houla for abit, when a crazy irish guy in local seemed to want to tell us how much he loved River Dance.

[ 2010.07.04 01:20:13 ] Tatanka Marcussen > RIVER FUCKING DANCE

I'm not sure exactly why he was telling us this. But I'm sure it had a deep and meaningful message in there somewhere.

Anyway. No fights to be had in Huola either. So we decided to goto plan C.

Plan C was to head to Egghelende, which is also very close to Amamake, and annoy the mighty Ken Plante. We arrived in Sisiede and formed up on the Egghelende gate and decided to send our most annoying and also best smacktard in.

You probably guessed it was Spectre3353.

Spectre3353 and Ken Plante had a relationship a long time ago, but it all went sour when Spectre3353 accidently taped over Kens favourite Kylie Minogue cassette. Ken spent several days listening to the radio and taping each song off the weeks-top-40. And he was very upset by Spectres disregard of his most treasured cassette.

Ever since then Ken has hated Spectre and has tried to kill him at any opportunity. He goes into a fit of pure blind rage and ends up throwing his own ships away, and ships of his corp mates.

So Spectre, being the good Python. Smacked and smacked while sitting on Kens home station. You can read the convo here.

But strangely, Ken didnt bite, he must be finally over Spectre, or his new boyfriend has brought him a proper official Kylie Minouge cassette. That, or he had finally got some anger management therapy, and was practicing some excellent self control.

Who knows!?

We saw Kens alt undock, and when we saw him enter Sisiede local we figuired that our trap was busted. He saw our beefy gang, so we decided to give Amamake one last shot.

We turned our ships round, went to Amamake and again sat in the top belt. We then started to smack:

Even Spectre himself thought that maybe our smack was going a little bit to far..

[ 2010.07.04 01:48:15 ] Spectre3353 > we are above the smacktalk

Again, the smack went on for a small while and as Spectre was about to tell us to give up:

[ 2010.07.04 01:51:23 ] Spectre3353 > we should just go 
[ 2010.07.04 01:51:30 ] Spectre3353 > the longer we sit, the sooner until we get smacked down by a hotdrop

[ 2010.07.04 01:51:32 ] Spectre3353 > and nothign is coming


An Abbadon, two tempests, A Megathron AND a Nidhoggur appeared on close range scan:

[ 2010.07.04 01:51:40 ] Spectre3353 > or not

And it began! It was BANE, Kens alliance and it seemed they meant business.

We primaried the Megathron and someone reported that their Niddy had entered Triage mode. For those of you unaware what Triage mode is, it basically boosts your repping and local tank by a very large amount. It does however make you run out of a cap very fast if you start running everything.

More battleships landed, along with a Falcon. Everybody hate Falcons, even when your running double ECCMs, and everyone was quite relieved when Kobrakilla announced that he just one volleyed it in sniper Maelstrom. Shortly after Ken plante landed in a Armagedden with a full rack of nuets.

I told everyone to primary the Megathron. The Carrier began repping it and we simply could not break its tank. BANE were primarying Golden Helmet, but they also couldn't break our rep train. We were at somewhat of a stalemate but we had a slight advantage. Our Gaurdians wouldn't run out of cap, but the Carrier would.

I told everyone to switch primary to the Carrier... so that he had to turn on his local tank, thus wasting even more cap. We pounded it for a while, and being in triage he managed to tank all of us quite easily... that is... till he ran out of a cap a few minutes later.

I told everyone to switch primary again, back the Megathron and this time he went down fast. We switched primary to a Hurricane, who died before I could even lock it. Then to Kenny in the Gedden. Kenny melted like a Freddo in your back pocket on a hot day and already this gang was happy. Killing Ken Plante is our favourite past time.

We killed a few more ships, and we all began approaching their carrier to make sure it didn't get out of range. With the Carrier capped out and their dps ships dropping, BANE decided to call it a day and get the hell out of the belt. So off they ran like little bitches leaving us to finish of their capped out Carrier.

As it died there was an eruption of FUCK YEAS on comms, and we set about scooping as much loot as we could. I warped my alt in to collect the Capital mods from the Carrier wreck, but one of the BANE guys in a sniper ship destroyed the wreck.

Faggots.

I decided right then to call it. We had just beat a group of "Pro-pvpers" and not took a single loss in a pretty evenly matched fight. It was probably the best fight I've ever been in. You cant really tell from the engagement on the killboard, as we took zero losses, but BANE had 12 guys including a triage carrier, where as we had 19 with just BS/BC/Gaurdian support.

They had seen exactly what they had, and had formed a fleet specifically to kill us. The Falcon with mostly Amarr jammers to jam the Gaurdians, the neut Geddon to break our cap transfer chain, and the Triage carrier to negate our ECM and keep his fleet alive long enough to break our RR chain.

But they still got rolled!

After I returned home and docked up for the night I recieved a mail from Griznatle. You may remember him from a previous post:

carrier kill
From: Griznatle

Python recruitment drive.

So the King of Penis Larsypoo has requested that everyone who has a blog to make a shout out about our recent recruitment drive.



Actual picture of Lars

So here is my shout out!

Python has been around for nearly 3 years now (including original python) and our current variation has been round for over a year and were still as hard as ever.

Few things about our corp:

- We smack.. alot. If you don't like smack, we definitely aren't for you.
- We prioritize fun over everything else. If your a serious player who wants to win 100% of the time and don't like fails... we again.. aren't for you.
- Regular ops commanded by mostly drunk Fleet commanders.
- Small to medium gang warfare. We hardly ever blob. Most gangs have <10

What we are looking for:

- Moar EU/AUS pilots. Prio on EU.
- Pilots with a sense of humour
- Able to use vent and a mic (mic isn't mandatory, but very very encouraged)
- Activity. Don't bother joining if you log on once a month
- Pilots with initiative. Not pilots who just expect everything done for them. Going out soloing or forming your own gangs is very very encouraged.
- A little experience will go a long way. But if your app is good, and you seem like a good fit, we are willing to show you the ropes.
- We don't have a set SP requirement. Alot of our best pilots have been rifter noobs. We judge a character on attitude and experience, not how many SPs they have.


All that I need to do now is provide a link! here it is: http://www.swingnews.org/python/forum/index.php?board=3.0

Good luck!

You mad You gay?

So a long time ago, a guy called Griznatle used to be in the same corp as us. Readers of Spectre's blog may remember him. For those who dont know him, basically hes the most annoying shit in the entire of EvE. Doesn't post his losses, constantly talks over people, screams on vent like a girl and pretty much just thinks he's the proverbial shit. When in reality hes the worst player in EvE who has never got a solo kill in his life. After he left the corp, he joined Heretics, then Advocates of Sin.

Anyway! History lesson over. Today we went on a little roam down to good ol' Amamake in a bunch of tanked battlecruisers. We decided to simply just sit in the top belt and wait for the blob. Sure enough, the blob came in the form of Minimatar faction warfare and with a few losses we destroyed nearly thier entire fleet.

There was much rejoicing, and as we were about to leave the belt, and return home, an Armagedden belonging to Advocates of Sin warped in at zero. I was FC again, so I just told everyone to cancel thier warps and kill the Gedden.

We opened fire.... and in came the blob + ECM. They claim to be "pro-pvpers" in thier corp description, yet they just smash a bunch of battlecruisers with a bunch of battleships and ECM. Not to mention a gang boosting titan at a pos nearby.

But its cool. We all blob sometime, and we all want the killmails. So off we went home in our pods.

When we got home Twicedasize came up with the idea to camp our new High sec gate in Resbroko. It was pretty queit, but we did manage to get a few kills.

We were sitting in our ninja when our cloaky falcon on the gate told us that there was a blinky Advocates of Sin Maller on the gate. I warped my shiney new Vigilant to the gate, followed by the rest of the gang and proceeded to tear the Maller a new one.

His tank was good, and as he hit armor.... he lit a cyno!

I immediatly told everyone to get the hell off the gate, and get the hell off the gate we did... in came the Titan bridge. In came the battleships and.... nothing. They managed to point nobody and we all managed to get out without even a scratch.

Smack ensued:

Fleet Commander Andrea Skye.

When I first joined The Python Cartel. I pretty much accepted the fact I'd never FC a gang. I always used to let Golden Helmet or Inertial do it. They would lead us all to death and glory in our T1 frigs and we would return home in our pods quite happy.

Recently tho, most of our regular FC's have became slightly inactive. This is a problem in any corp, as most decent gangs need an FC to keep everyone organised during fights/roams.

So, the past few weeks, I have been kinda pushed into the FC role. Mostly because everyone else is lazy as shit, or too drunk to speak properly over the comms.

My FC-ing has actually been pretty terrible. Half of the time we all end up dieing fiery deaths, and the other half the time we end up not getting a fight at all.

Well last night, I was once again pushed into the FC role, and we set out to roam around our rather quiet area. We were flying a pretty mixed gang, of Battlecruisers and T2 cruisers. Half were nano-ed and half were not. I explained to those who were not nano-ed my current track record, and told them that they were most likely going to be blown to a thousand pieces. But they wasn't phased... they simply just told me to hurry up and get the roam started!

So off we went. First we went off to Gademon, where our nearest neighbours hang out. They are called The Alpha and the Omega and we have have some pretty decent fights with them in the past.

With our Scout bot 9000 series Necio's voice exhibitors offline (his microphone was broke), Golden Helmet was set as role as scout, in what was actually MY Rapier. I had told him to be extra careful with it, as it was really well fit with a Faction disruptor. I knew as I was saying "DON'T GET IT BLOWN UP PLZ!" that is was a futile task. Golden Helmet is a solid pilot but hes also the most suicidal person in EvE. He would cyno his Carrier into a fleet of Dradnoughts just get a Bantam kill.

Anyway, GH scouted around looking for something to crush just ahead of us, and sadly found nothing but a Myrmidon and Harbinger, sitting on a high sec gate, who jumped the moment they saw us.

So I told everyone to set their destination to another system nearby called Antem, where a group of pilots live belonging to Chains of Chaos alliance (CoC from now on. Yes, their really called CoC)

Along the way we saw a Myrm and a Hurricane who also jumped back into high sec the moment they saw our numbers in the local channel. I hate high sec PvP'ers with a passion.

We continued to Antem and once we arrived we set ourselves up on the Antem gate. We sent Golden Helmet in to look around and tried to lure CoC out for a fight. While we were waiting on the gate a CoC catalyst jumped past us and saw everything we had.

CoC would no doubt gather the blob and my suspicions were confirmed when one of our scouts noticed a large CoC gang right behind us. I quickly decided that fighting them on a gate on the home system would be pretty stupid, so we decided to simply get out the way before the BS gang arrived and flattened us.

We quickly got out of local and headed further down the pipe. But while we were jumping we noticed that the CoC gang were following us. Quickly assessing the situation I figured that if we sat on the gate as they jumped though, got into our optimal ranges... we would have a decent advantage, as they would all be spread out and unable to remote rep, and we would be in perfect position to at least kill a few of them.

Their scout jumped through into us and quickly cloaked in his bomber. We waited a minute or two, and to our joy we saw the gate fire and local spike a little. It seemed the trip from Antem had actually spread them out a bit, giving us even more of an advantage.

Primaries were called the CoC ships started to explode One by One. First went one of the bombers who warped in abit to close, next a Dominix, then a Mega. We were losing our non-Nano ships as they made an easy Primary sitting right next to the CoC gang. My Gila was pretty safe, and I easily outrun a bunch of Ogre IIs that someone had put on me. I tried my best to keep up with Fc-ing and call both secondary and primary targets while keeping my ship outta harms way.

CoC kept sending more people, only to be destroyed by our now mostly nano gang (non nano-s were already dead) and we slowly picked them off. Eventually CoC decided to cut their losses and de-agress, then jump back into the previous system escaping.

Overall we lost 6 battlecruisers and killed 12 ships, 4 of them Battleships and one Ashimmu. We were slightly outnumbered and had smaller ships than CoC but somehow we managed to hold the field in the end. The amount of loot we received afterwards covered most of our losses with insurance so it really wasn't so bad.

My Fc-ing it seems has gone from getting the whole gang killed, to only getting HALF the gang killed. Definitely an improvement! :D

PS. I forgot to turn on fraps (seem to do that alot)

Lights, Camera, Action!

So after watching Htrags new video (you can watch it here) I've finaly decided to go make my own. I've been planning on making one for a long time now but never really got round to it.

I havent rly got any footage yet, all I have is a few seconds of Lachesis' girlfriend going out for a refreshing drive in the country. I'm going to use it as an intermission.

So heres to running fraps with 20 fps and lots of losses to Falcons while trying to get good fights. Cheers!

Nice tower... we'll take it!

It was a pretty normal night. We were camping our gate in our system and in all honesty it was pretty dead. There was hardly any traffic and we spent most of the time mocking Twicedasize's HIC skills... or lack of them. (Love you still Twice). When Apoctasy noticed the corp mute, Inka.. typing messages in one of our Intel channels.

I glanced down at my screen to read it:

"...Tower un anchoring... Dread Gurista large... estimated cost... 1.5 billion!... unattended!..."

Huh what, their must be some mistake. Our gangs interested shift from taking the piss outta Twice to the 1.5 billion chunk of space trash that appeared to be only 3 jumps away.

We quickly, abandoned the gate camp and began to make our way to Jeni. I was in a Tempest with a GCC and going unscouted. I was in a gate camp fit too, no MWD or prop mod.. if I got caught on the gate I was toast, slightly risky... but in this situation, definitely worth the risk.

We arrived in the system expecting to see the owners of the tower there ready to defend their 1.5 billion isk asset... only to find a lone Bustard Transport ship on scan, and nobody else in local. OK...

My alt in a Prowler transport jumped in and made her way to the tower. As she landed, it un anchored and I scooped it. No problems...

That was Easy!

Maybe abit to easy.

We all decided to get out of the system asap and quickly made our way back to Ami. My alt following closely behind the gang. We thought our luck couldn't get any better... We had just lifted a tower worth 1.5 billion with little to no hassle. Split 5 ways we would make about 300 million each. Not bad for 5 minutes work.

But our luck did get better.

On the way back to Ami we came across a lone uncloaked Proteus jumping the opposite way to us. As it jumped through the gate Inka got a point and needless to say... it died horribly. We scooped the loot and eventually made it back to Ami intact. We later sold the Tower for what it was worth and added a nice little layer to each of our wallets.

Thats what I love about EvE. One minute your sitting on a gate, passing the time, hoping for a juicy Frieghter or Navy Megathron to jump through, whilst getting bored out your wits and the next your hitting the Jackpot and killing T3 ships :D

FACEPLANT vol.2

So the much loved Spectre3353 is finally back playing again. While nowhere near as much as before due to him being a huge vagina... but at least hes back!

His "first" night back resulted in the killing of Ken Plante. You may remember him from a while ago when we assassinated his Proteus after 3 hours of waiting and nearly a month of planning. But you can read about his new face plant here.

I missed it! :(



Ken is the guy standing ontop of the box thing. Every time I watch that video, it reminds me of Kenny. He acts all big and bad, attempts to show off and... fails. :D

Post EvE related!

Epic fights!

"Domi in a belt Skye, wanna kill it?"

It was Twicedasize. I had just logged on the change a skill... but Domi in belt!?

Why not? I thought to myself.

I quickly changed to my Rapier and fleeted up with Twice and proceeded to scan around the system to try locate exactly where this Domi was. We scanned him out a few times, but to our dismay he always managed to warp out just as we were about to land. It was always a seemingly random belt too, so we could predict where he was going to go either.

We was about to give up, but then Twice noticed a few other ships on scan. An Onyx, Broadsword and a Rook. They were in the same corp as the Domi pilot and usualy in this situation we would of just left it at that and docked up. But a new guy to our corp WNKyle wanted to join us.

He wanted to help kill the gang that was in local. He was in a Nano Harbinger and Twice was in a Nano Ishtar. So the plan was made. I would tackle them with my Rapier whilst staying outta of neut range, then Twice and Kyle would smash then with drones and scorch.

The gang appeared to have stopped moving and now were just sitting in a lone belt in system. So off we all warped and the fight began. For some reason, the Rook cloaked at the start of the fight about 70km away and remained cloaked for a good while.

We nanod around trying to split them up but they were sticking together. They would never stray to far away from each other and the heavy missiles from the onyx and the Sentry drones from the Domi were really starting to hurt my Rapier. Eventually I had to warp out at 10% armor (not good in a Rapier that has only 600 structure HP or so, and shield tanked :D ). Kyle and Twice were still sticking around tho, so I decided to go switch ship and get something that can point from really long range.

I switched to my super secret Nano Arazu and warped back to the belt. With this fit I could go nearly 2k m/s and point from 60km. Seemed like the perfect ship for the job. The only problem: No damps!

As I landed, Kyle had to bail also. The Drones and heavy missiles were starting to get the better of him so off he went leaving just me and Twice in the belt. I uncloaked and pointed the Onyx. He was closest to Twice but still 50km from me. The only problem was now, is that the Onyx had a MWD. We had no webs and Twice's sentries couldn't track it. So Twice had to use medium drones which the Onyx easily tanked.

Soon they again switched primary to me, Kyle had landed back in the belt after regenerating some shield but again, the drones and Heavy missiles were really starting to hurt. I tried to get a bit more distance from the Onyx but his range appeared endless. At one point I was 110km from it and the missiles were STILL hitting me. I eventually had to bail nearly in structure again...

I had had enough of dicking around. I had had enough of being squatted with drones and missiles so I again decided to switch ship .Twice and Kyle kept them busy and I docked up and fetched my triple rep Myrmidon with boosters to boot.

I warped to Twice and this time it was Twice who had to bail due to low armor. Twice followed my example and went to fetch his own Myrmidon. I landed right next to the Broadsword. The Domi was a good 60km off, and the Onyx was about 30km away. The Rook was still cloaked somewhere in the belt for some reason or another so I decided to get a point on the Broadsword as it was closest.

I burned towards it and got a point and a web. Twice announced he was undocking as I launched my drones and set them on the Broadsword. Like all HICs, his tank were pretty good, and my drones and ACs were barely doing enough damage to break his tank. They couldn't break my tank either tho, and I was good aslong as my cap boosters lasted.

Twice and Kyle landed again and soon the Broadsword started to drop. The Domi warped out to warp back to his friend in an effort to try get closer to us to use his neuts... which would be really bad for me being in an active tank ship. So I screamed for Twice and Kyle to "OVERLOAD YOUR SHIT!" The extra damage helped to get past the Broadswords passive Regen.

As it was about to bleed into armor the rook uncloaked and warped to his friends from 150km away. I found myself jammed and unable to keep a point. Twice also announced his was jammed and I groaned to myself.

Fucking ECM.

But it was to late for him. The drones wern't jammed. They continued to do damage and with the help of Kyle the Broadsword exploded. We were about to turn our attention to the Onyx when the Dominix landed again. He turned his attention to me and noticed my cap starting to get sucked away.

"Dominix is Primary!" I cried.

I had one cap booster left and was being neuted to hell. My armor was dropping and I figured it was all over for me. I overloaded my guns in an effort to break them, but as I did I noticed the Dominix was actually double rep fit. He was neuting, Scrammed/webbing and Repping all at the same time. His cap wouldn't last long if he carried on like that. knowing this, I aligned myself to an asteroid on the other side of the belt and started to spam the warp button.

Then, for reasons I'm still not sure the Rook and the Onyx warped out and ran away...

Out of cap charges, into structure I went, followed by the Domi who was also about to go into structure. If it carried on like it was I'd die first, the Domi has alot more structure than I did... But I wishfully kept spamming the warp button in the hope that the Dominix ran outta cap and lost his point.

Warp warp warp!

I hit about 40% structure and my ship lost a lock on the Dominix. For a second I thought I'd died and went to open my char sheet to check the loss mail. But I realised I wasn't dead. I was in warp. the Domi had lost point and I was free! I couldn't believe it. I sat there for a few sec stuck amongst the roids and watched as the Domi blew up in the distance. Awesome! Nothing like ending a fight on fire, with no cap charges left and your guns burnt out :D

The whole fight lasted about 20 minutes and kodos to "No Code of Conduct" for bringing the fight in the first place.

Apoctasy says: OMW

After that epic fight of awesomeness we decided to get a gang together and go roam around our new area. The gang consisted of ME (Gila), IEATCRAYONS (Fleet Stabber and yes, he really eats crayons), Wohenmang (Dramiel) and 00sage00 (Scimatar).The whole area was pretty dead and one hour in we had only killed a lonely Hoarder moving around some junk. After that we were joined by Sean Dillon (Scimatar) and Jaxxon Voers (Huginn)

We were about to turn back when Crayons told us there were 6-7 battleships, including a Armageddon Navy Issue, in the system ahead apparently shooting a POS. After a quick talk we decided we would go play with the battleships but we would keep range just in case they had a bunch of neuts.

As we was about to send Wohen in to get a point. Apoctasy logs on.

"Sup" he goes

"Bout to get into a fight actually"

"wait for meeeee! I gotta falcon!"

He was 13 jumps away. But a falcon would be very handy in this situation. The enemy gang had a bunch of geddens with a Navy Gedden and all of them packing scorch would be very nasty to us, all being in nano ships. If Apoc could come and fit a bunch of Amarr jammers.... maybe we could gank a couple of BS's without actualy losing any ships...

So we decided to wait for him. We called Crayons back from scouting as we didn't wanna scare them away.

We spent the next 15 minutes it took Apoctasy to reach us formulating the perfect plan to kill these guys. We had planned to send Wohen in first, tackle the navy gedden, then send in Apoc to jam whatever he could. Then we would warp the rest of the gang in and slowly pick them off one by one.

The plan we good, and when Apoc arrived we all got on the gate to the system they was in. In went Wohen and to our dismay...

... they had left local.

God dammit Apoc.

Because Jaxx told me too.

My blog doesn't get "that" many readers, and most of the readers are already in my corp. So this bit seems rather pointless. But because Jaxx told me too here it is:

THE PYTHON CARTEL IS RECRUITING!

A confession.

So I'm still on my EvE "break". I do still log on sometimes but I've been doing something I said I wouldn't.

I've been playing WoW.

The worst thing is, I'm actually enjoying it, and I've started to level up one of my old characters again and I have every intention of getting 80 and gearing it and then doing arena for serious.

Which wont leave much time for EvE.

The good news is, I have about 20 days left on my Carrier training. All relevant skills will be at 4 so I will be very useful in both logistics and fleet engagements in our corp.

When my Carrier training finishes I'm going to train something fun like Crusaders and light laser IIs. I definitely wont be able to resist playing then :D

Yes, I got his stuff

A good EvE friend of mine who you probably all know recently "quit" EvE. His name is Spectre3353 and this has to be like the 10th time he has quit. This time he insists its "FO' REALS this time" and has even given most of his stuff away. I woke up the other day to find a freighter and a Navy Megathron in my hangar and an offer to give me all his cash... except.... his game time ran out so he couldn't give it to me. He also mentioned giving his character away.

Well. I know Spectre. He will be back. Nobody gets outta EvE alive. So I'm going to keep a hold of his stuffs and give it him back when he inevitably returns.

PvE = Self Harm

Ever since I've played EvE I've always had an inner Carebear that sometimes bursts out to do lame PvE stuff. That said I've always considered myself a PvP'r and I do tend to get bored of PvE very quickly. (as with most games I play actually)

Recently I have set myself up with a clone deep in 0.0 space, with a couple of ships and a station full of mission agents. Ive spent the last few days slowly (Note: _slowly_) building up my standings to be able to start the Epic mission arcs. I've finally got my standings into positive numbers, but I've still a way to go and many low level missions left to burn through.
--

WHINE: The epic PIRATE mission arcs were designed with criminals in mind. They were for people who wanted to be on the wrong side of the law. My problem with that, is that nearly all pirates and criminals have terrible standings with everybody. So to start the mission arc you need to farm up a whole bunch of standings. Rather tedious to say the least.

--

Anyway, yesterday I was about to jump into my new 0.0 clone and continue with my mission blitzing when I got stopped by Felix and Lady Thanatos (LT). Apparently LT had found an escalating mission, and wanted to know if anyone would like to join.

Its possible you can get some rather awesome loot from doing it, and they can actually be kinda fun. So I stopped myself from jump cloning and decided to join them on their epic quest for fame and riches. Lee11B also joined us and the chain sent us to a system several jumps away.

The first site was rather easy. We finished it in a couple of minutes, got some crappy/cheap faction loot from one of the rats and then moved on to the next site. That one was also easy and gave us a crappy faction item again, so we moved on.

While we were on the way to our next site, Lee decided it would be a good idea to sit on a gate with a bunch of frigs for a while... and idea which ended up with him getting scrambled, shot and exploderised before we had even got back to the gate to help him.

Being true to the spirit of Python we decided to just continue without him.

We carried on without incident until we reached a site that looked like it could be the final site. At the centre of the site was a small control bunker and we assumed that was where all the loot would be.

"Don't shoot the bunker yet, kill all the rats first!" said LT.

Fine. I shot all the rats in my bomber, melting them pretty easy. Felix was in his arty cane, so we pretty much volleyed everything (Even tho Felix brought the wrong ammo). After all the rats were dead we checked the loot of one of the faction spawns we had killed. Again... crappy item with about a million isk..

But it was OK, the bunker would drop something awesome no doubt.

So, after LT had recovered a little bit of cap he told us to go ahead and shoot the bunker. Felix, opened fire and.... I exploded???

What the fuck!?

I spammed the warp button to get my pod out and checked my screens. Apparently the bunker set off a blast wave which insta popped my ship. Awesome!

So I set of back home, in my pod, and about half way back I received the news that the bunker had dropped nothing. We had ended up with a couple of faction items worth about 15 mil altogether which when split up meant a measly 4 mil each. not even enough to pay for the ship I lost.

PvE sucks.

Break Times!

Past few weeks I've grown increasingly frustrated with EvE. I like to solo PvP, and in EvE atm, its not exactly the best thing to be doing.

Everything you attack is bait, you basically have to assume your going to be fighting more than one target. Which not only cuts your target selection down considerably, it also means you die a lot. I previously made a post where I mentioned about nano-ing. Well, even that's getting difficult to do now, as people seem to be flying with anti nano ships alot more than before (Rapiers, Curses, Sniper ships and scrambling frigs that don't lose point even if you neut them for a hour)

Then there is the corp activity. Python always seems to go through hot and cold phases, and at the minute it seems were going through a cold phase. A lot of what makes EvE fun is the people you play with, so its one of the main reasons I've decided to take a "semi-break".

I thought about leaving Python and joining a corp where stuff is always happening... but I quickly realised that Python is really the only corp I want to play with. There is no other corp like it, and the people we have gathered pretty much all share the same sick sense of humour and laid back attitude.

There is also the fact I'd have to "start all over" get to know everybody again, and earn every bodies trust.

Hopefully when I get back to my 23/7 playtime schedule again, Python will be in a HOT phase AND my carrier training will be finished/near finished. So I can start skilling up for new fun ships (Like a Crusader.. or a Succubus, I always wanted one of those.. I just need light lasers and Amarr Frig 5!) :D

So by "Semi-break" I mean I'm going to cut my playtime drastically. I will still be playing, but nowhere near as much. I will probably just log on for pre-arranged ops and when I have nothing else to do.

And for the record... I wont be playing WoW!
