I've been feeling pretty down about EVE PvP this past week - partly because I've been getting disheartened losing so many bubbles to faction cruisers; partly because my preliminary attempts to "change my game" (stop camping, go solo roaming) has ended in a lot of relatively expensive ship losses.
With that in mind, I've been neglecting EVE for the past week really. Favouring more care bear games, traditional MMOs where death is an inconvenience at worst. But I do enjoy playing around downtime & I've got a few hours to kill before the football starts.
I lost a bubble to yet another faction fit cruiser. Sometimes, I really do get fed up - but I suppose, the guys who land in my bubble feel the same way about me!
That said, it's amazing how much a simple thing can have a massive impact...
15 minutes before downtime, I put up another bubble. See if anyone's being careless in a bid to leave null before the restart. Turns out they where! My kill. A buzzard, carrying a sister's probe launcher and a few hundred million in loot!
