Oh no, really?

But wait! Get ready to spaff yourself senseless because I have decided to do what everyone else does when they can’t play the game: they talk about it! On a Podcast! And this time, I’ve even developed a proper formula for the ‘show’, its called YAEP (pronounced ‘yeep’ because thats the sound I like when I fly through HED-GP with a fuckton of loot in my cargohold.

But what is the Podcast actually about?

Dunno, just wanted to do it.

Squid’s Ideas #37

There should be a drone that can automatically retrieve contents out of cargo containers and deposit said contents into your ship’s hold, or even into another cargo container.

Throwing a line

In case you missed my earlier ramblings about how I’m finally-doing-the-market-show-no-really, I am coming to the realisation that this is a very ambitious and tall-order that I am trying to do, I mean just look at the number of hyphens I’m using.

So what do I need? I need spies. Inb4 “Squid everyone knows you are already a spai”. And then I come to the realisation that the people I’ve talking to IRL over the years about being a spai never got the punchline, oh well.

Anywho, this is specifically for the purposes of news gathering and not for any espionage-type stuff, unlike Imperium News. Oooooo shots fired!

So, if you are interested in this then drop me a line (in-game, on Discord, or leave a comment). Yes, you will be paid for this. Probably in PLEX.

You must also have patience. This isn’t going to be a success overnight kind of deal, this is going to take many months of planning and building up what I hope to be a rival news organisation in EVE.

A confession

Okay, I can’t hide it anymore. I need to tell you why I haven’t been logging into EVE.

Are you ready?

Its because of this damn game……

Help! I’m 100 hours in and I can’t stop.

Conflict and love

So the big war (you know, the one that was supposed to be over my Christmas) is still raging on, and although it looks like Legacy will be able to kick the grrr Goons out of their stronghold in Delve, hold it will be another task entirely.

Add to the mix that some of the alliances and corporations are starting to run dangerously low on funds for their war chest, and the impending clusterfuck that’ll be simultaneously holding their current territory AND their new claims in Delve. We’ve got many months to go.

And I absolutely love it!

I make no attempt to hide that I derive all of my entertainment in EVE for watching (and sometimes manipulating) events in New Eden, I am like a kid in a candy shop at the moment.

If only I had more time to log in.

I also make no attempt to hide the fact that I have contributed very little to my alliance’s efforts in this war, apart from the occasional entertainment on voice comms and the non-existent radio show that I ran last year.

Trust me, I’ll be back.

More than eve

I started this blog years ago with the intention of just talking about my exploits (and colossal failures) in EVE, but tbh I’ve branched out a lot since then. So what am I playing?

  • EVE Online (obviously)
  • Minecraft
  • Stellaris
  • Stellaris
  • Frost Punk

Radio fails

Alright, I know I said that we’d be back on the radio by now but tbh I’m not really up to the task. Give me a few months to get my shit together after having Covid (and also send me pools of ISK if you feel sorry for me).

Scam Stick

Despite running banking and investment schemes in EVE since, I dunno, forever? If I don’t log in for a week and I’m not available on Discord, my inbox is suddenly full of accusations of scamming and that I’ve run off with everyone’s ISK.

For the thousandth time, stfu.

Do I have your corpse?

Yes, everyone likes corpses. Some like making them, others like collecting. There are even some that like doing both.

Years ago before I stopped undocking, I ran a feature on my old blog where I would list all of the corpses (now littering the hundreds) I have collected, I’m thinking of bringing it back.

Who knows, if you see your name on the list then maybe you’ll want it back…for a price.
