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.
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!
