Back on track with mining

Okay, so after around 8 days the war was over. Initially our alliance took a fair amount of losses from various battlefleets, but a few days in the tides turned and we gave them a good hiding for a while...

I'm not 100% on what went on, unfortunatly due to real life stuff, I was wasn't online through most of the war, so I didn't get a chance to test out my Rifter for pvp - only a few security missions here and there (for the most part it was great).

I know that both sides agreed on an unofficial ceasefire and about a day or so later the war had ended. I recieved an email and won't go into all the details but I believe money changed hands to protect one of our POS, whatever your opinion on this - from what I gather protecting it with force, we stood to lose many ships and it came down to a cost vs benefits scenario - so I guess this was a sensible solution.

So, here I am back to mining and carrying on learning skills. As I mentioned in a previous post I was given a Retriever, which I kitted out yesterday with some Strip Lasers - boy are they quicker! I can mine a lot more in a shorter space of time and solo mining is nowhere near as bad with the increased cargo space. All in all I'm having a blast in EVE - I realise there is so much I don't know but at the moment, I'm really just trying to concentrate on mining and making some decent money. If I try and be too many things at once, I'm going to lose the plot I think lol. When I've got to a better stage I'll probablly do what most seem to, running another account paid for by ISK for hauling and pvp but until them I'm happy mining!

  1. EVE definitely is pretty awesome once you find what your calling in it is. The beauty too, is that you're always free to stop and do something else if you want! But you're absolutely right needing to be focused, because if you're enjoying it, you might as well get good at it.
