Qash Moved On

Capsuleer report 24112010-1
After watching some of the Alliance policties over the last couple of day, I have left the corp and SYS-K.
I know I was't alone in this. Volatile Nature, Knights Of Divinity and Awww Diddums Corps leaving at the same time. The Alliance council really need to listen to the players, I'm not saying do what they say, but just listen.

It wasn't enjoyable, I have limited time online so I have moved on.

Now what, yeap, I have moved into a small corp raiding wormholes, from Highsec at the moment. Hopefully finding a wormhole to live in, fingers crossed.

Note to self: w-space, I forgot much fun this was :)

Qash In Need?

Capsuleer report 11112010-1
? for SYS-K.

I haven't posted for some time as I have been ill.

I was involved in a Home Defence that was a major fail!!!

Again White Noise invaded the Home systems. We took them on as normal, after the first engagement we should of backed of. But no with the latest lost of the main Alliance FC, leaving SYS-K, the alliance has grown too many heads (FCs).

In the end CAPs entered the battle, which we couldn't win. The call was to get the CAPs off the field. To a point I did a suicide run with my Guardian to rep the CAPs long enough to get them off the field.

I lost a Guardian, Rook and a Muninn but the CAPs (all of them left the field no CAP killmail).

0.0 politics has kicked in and PB isn't a nice place to play at the moment. Am I have fun, NOT REALLY!

Is it time to rethink my position? I had applied for a council position on the Corp leadership. But I'm thinking more to leaving not increasing my involvement.

Note to self: Am I having fun?

Qash In Lag Fest

Capsuleer report 25102010-1
CTA for SYS-K.

Jumped into my Guardian, joined fleet, off to E-PR0S (Feythabolis), for a fight, but we got a kicking.

I won't say too much except, the lag was terrible. Looking back we should never of jumped into the fleet holding grid and it was for them like shooting fish in a barrel.

But being good lemmings we followed the FC orders. All I'd like to say is we lost two-thirds of the fleet.
I came home in my overheated damaged guardian but I came home :)

Note to self: Everyone needs to learn, with big fleet fights the one holding Grid wins!

Qash Epic Fail

Capsuleer report 19102010-1
Wormhole is discovered to another 0.0 (Outer Ring) so Alliance fleet setup and start a roaming.

I jump in with my roaming Scimitar (with cloak). Started off well, one ratting Drake (Kill and podded).

Then we chased down a T3 Proteus. But it was bait and we got on the end of the hook.

As soon as it was know to be bait I should of stepped back, but no. I warped to zero on our scout, whom was dust as I landed, then I started shoting the Proteus with my pop gun. Doh! What was I thinking. He had me scrammed, so I burned (slow boated) to the gate which seemed to take forever, but I didn't even have a chance to see if the aggression timer had finished I was dust too.
I was not happy about being podded as the gate was telling me there was a session timer, but I was in my new warm clone in PB, in no time at all :D
Note to self: Think! Warp at optiums, don't attack your in a Logistics, DOH!

Qash In TCAG Home Defence

Capsuleer report 17102010-1

Battle in TCAG-3 (Period Basis), 16-10-2010 (18:50 - 20:10)
Battle Statistics
101 friendly - 96 Hostile
49 ships killed (2.52B ISK)
10 ships lost (0.56B ISK)
81.78% efficienc (ISK)
4.9:1 Kill ratio
Coven, Stain Empire and ROMANIAN-LEGION came to PB to give us a fight, which ended in them leaving the field with a bloody nose.
I was flying my Guardian, which this was a good test of the Alliance, with the help of Galactic Syndicate and our neighbours Legiunea ROmana. It seemed to work, very well.
Comments we don't get any T3 kills although we tried. As for our losses, only comments, out of range of us logistics means a loss. We lost a guardian, but it seemed that the Hostiles had camped the other side of the gate so pick off anyone who gate jumped.
All in all, a good fight, when you listen to the FC, it works out in the end.
Well done SYS-K (and allies) :D
Note to self: Fit drones, so I can get on atleast one killmail :P

Qash in 10/10

Capsuleer report 11102010-2

In my Tengu (on a corp op) ran a 10/10 and two 6/10, our rats in PB are Blood Raiders.

Didn't get a great deal of isk, only around 80 mil. But that will buy me another Guardian :)) Better than spinning in station.

I would like more off these corp ops.

Note to self: Be prepared for fleet ops (I need the isk :)

Qash in Guardian

Capsuleer report 11102010-1

Logistics, my favourite ships, Scimitar I love, fast great for small fast roaming fleets.

But I have been using my Guardian, with PoS bash BS fleets. No killboard stats, but I don't care. Where as the Scimitar can be alone in a fleet, Guardian needs to work in pairs.

So far:-
I was a lone Guardian in a PoS bash, I feel I supported the BS cap, but only limited. But one comment be aligned. As we were hot dropped and only about 30% of the fleet got out.
I have been in a PoS bash tonight with another Guardian, 500% better, only issue was the jamming, but I felt I was useful for the fleet.

Also the align to bookmarks, great, being aligned to a safe spot, VERY helpful :)

Note to self: Be aligned while in a Pos Bash Fleet.

Qash on Killboard (Again)

Capsuleer report 06102010-1

Roams/Home Defence everyday 0.0 life.

Went on a roam in a rook, E-WAR, got on a ratting RAVEN kill. Very quiet, had a bit of a standoff with STAIN, but the FC told us to go. FC is the boss, 1 Kill no losses :)

Just as we arrived home, I jumped into my Scimitar, for Home Defence Fleet. I ended up being the only Logistics, but was great fun. I got on 2 kills, a Sabre and a Zealot.

Note to other: Broadcast for reps :)

Qash At Home (Home Defence)

Capsuleer report 04102010-1
What a weekend!
Home defence started of well, trapping some COVEN in CJF-1P. My scimitar got on a Enyo kill (suspect scout) on a gate camp.
But it all turned sour very quickly.
There was intel on a 20 strong White Noise fleet heading inbound. So Home Defence re-shipped to mainly drakes and set up at optimums at the VR-YIQ gate in 1-NJLK. Normally a good tactic, but it seems that we were out played.
As the 45+ White Noise fleet jumped in, they were laying down more dps then we could handle (in my Scimitar). As soon as the call for reps was called out I'd lock and start to rep. But the amount of dps being given out was too much for us Logistics.
The FC already in his pod call for everyone to safe up. Which looking at the killboard didn't happen fast enough. And we got a blood nose.
As always the 'emo rage' started blaming everyone for the losses. But basically, White Noise had out gunned us. The FC commented that the intel he had was for a much small fleet then came in (20 not the 45).

After the next downtime, our corp had a Ratting op. which had a better than normal for corp ops attendance. I don't believe the corp needs the isk, but it was a good reason to fly together.

Later another Home Defence fleet was called, but after awaiting around for the inbound which didn't come while I was online, shame.
As viewing the killboard there was a one sided fight, later, this time we out dps the inbound.
There seems to be a move in EVE for Armour HAC gangs. So I need to look into running Guardian as well as Scimitar Logistics.
Note to Self - rethink skill training.

Qash In 0.0 (Normal Night)

Capsuleer report 28092010-1

Home Defence was called as I login.
Some cloaky Brick Gang (5 of) hovering around PB.
I join in my Onyx but before long the requirement for Logistics gets me back into my Scimitar, ended up me on my own.
We trapped them in a system, but cloaky fags, just cloaked in system, until we got bored.
I afk'd for a bit, which i missed the continued chase of Brick gang as their number had grown to 7.
But it ended: Cloaky Fags 0 Home Defence 0

I did alittle ratting, i need the isk. Corp looking to run some 10/10 plex.

Qash In Mining (Corp Op)

Capsuleer report 27092010-1

Disappointing for a corp of 79, only 3 or 4 turn up and only 2 of these could mining.

Thats the way it goes.

I can mine for mercoxit now, by god it is slow.

Note to Self - sort my skills out!

Qash on CTA (Time limits set by RL)

Capsuleer report 24092010-1
A CTA was call 'bc shield' order of the day. Great time to get in my favourite ship, the 'Scimitar'.
It seems we were called in to assist IT take another station from -A- in 5-N2EY.
Using the jump bridges we travel to Catch quickly. There was a report on a 40 man (Drunk GanG) in the area. Which we met in X4-WL0. It ended in a stand-off, with a kill of a Malediction but a loss of a Raptor, DRAW!
The fleet broadcasts for reps from us logistics kept others from showing up in the killboard. We held the ground so gave me time, as I carry Armour maintenance bots, to repair any Armour damage (we nearly lost a Malediction ourselves, I noticed as I was repping, seeing it in structure).
Then we carried on to destination.
bm the 'red' iHub and a 'safe' PoS in system. This is when it got very boring. No information coming from the top, it seems that IT where busy reinforcing other stations, so we sat in the Safe PoS for over 3 hours.
[I have only around a 5 hour window and 4 hours had past and I'm sitting in 'red' space - in a logistics.]
When some of my fellow corp mates, in corp chat called it a night, and said they would burn back to PB. I joined them.
Nothing of interest, one system with 5 neuts, but no gate camp so we burned through. Although there was a cloaky Loki - thought better of it - and seemed to cloak up on the gate as we jumped through.
I was in home systems, before long. So I did what I have been trying to do for a couple of weeks. Clone jump to my +4 clone, which I stupidly moved into 0.0, during my move into PB and move it back to Hi Sec (in a cloaky Cheetah). I didn't get to my Hi Sec systems I base myself out of, for PI and industrial pursuits. As I ran out of time, continue next time.
Note to Self - Check your Clone!

Qash In Home Defence (Blue On Blue)

Capsuleer report 23092010-1
Started as normal quiet evening, ratting a couple of blood raider anomalies.
When a bc Alliance roam was called, all reds/neuts in Paragon Soul/Esoteria were docked or Ctrl+Q as we got close.

The fun part started later, I was sitting at the 1-NJLK gate in VR-YIQ when a Dramiel warped at zero to the gate. So I instantly (as much as a Cyclone can) lock and start shoting, but he just MWD to over 200km from me. I relayed the info back to Alliance. A Home Defence fleet was being call as it seem the Dramiel was a scout for a sb gang heading inbound.
I joined the fleet and swapped for my Onyx.
First mistake I made was warping back to the VR-YIQ/1-NJLK gate and bubbled up. Why? God knows, surrounded by two dramiels, about 10 hounds, Curse and a Scimitar.
Lucky, one, I think the sb gang (HYDRA RELOADED) thought I was bait and which I didn't know, two, they had other plans. They headed for EIMJ-M.
I had managed to sort myself out and join the rest of the Home Defense fleet, tail between my legs :(. I wasn't the only one, being stupid, tonight. A Blue Nighthawk was killed in VR-YIQ, just before my bubble on the gate brain freeze.
Now it seemed that a carrier was being tackled in EIMJ-M by a blue. (Whom we found out very quickly was working with this sb gang).
We jumped in and warped to assist the carrier. 2 kills (Dramiel and a Hound) of which my bubble got me on the Dramiel kill and we had no losses.

All I can say was we all got a mouth full from the FC, as either of these where called Primary.

Minilynx (the blue turncoat).
As these KB kills where posted very quickly.
'Thanatos'; 'Tengu'; 'Tengu'
But we know now he was working for the sb gang, Minilynx was killed trying, it looks like, tackling another Tengu. After being kicked from his corp. 'Vigil'
Hooray :) Although I guess there needs to be some diplo working with IT over this.
Another Dramiel was killed by the the Home Defence Fleet (well see the kill mail) 'Dramiel' on Dramiel.
It now seemed a stand off. The rest of the sb gang safe or cloaked, us camping gates.
The Home Defence fleet was stood down, as stalemate was the conclusion.
Note to Self - Think before warp. Doh!

Qash In Eve (Me)

Capsuleer report 22092010-2

So who is Jonie Qash. Pre-clone 2008.01 41+Mil SP.

Now member of:

Corp logo

Ascendancy. [ASY.]

Corp logo

Systematic-Chaos [SYS-K]

But I have a fairly healthly employment history.

  • Started in Q'Ruszee Clan [QRUS], great group of pilots, mainly geared around Mining and Missioning, which was a great step up for me in EVE, steady income.
  • I joined Tribal Liberation Force [TLIB] for pvp but found it full of ego fuelled kids, so went back to [QRUS].
  • The Fated [FATED], wornhole living, again great group of pilots, earned alot of isk. Got my first kill here.
  • Mercurialis Inc. [MINC], 0.0 pew pew (Wildly Inapproprate Alliance). Just a number, couldn't produce enough isk to support pvp, great forum, tons of information.
  • The Order of Odin [TOOO] & Valkyries Of Odin [V00] back to wormholes and isk making. great pilots corps alittle bit disorganised, earned a Loki hull from corp. Started Drug manufacture (Boosters) in PoS.
  • The Orphanage [-T-O-] this corp small but learnt loads about invention, scanning, and Caps and T2 manufacture. But Low Sec living is alittle slow.
  • Now Ascendancy. [ASY.] 0.0 pew pew, more than just a number now. Let see how it goes.

Must mention my bestest EVE mates, which I have ran with these last 18 months D'Antrim and EvilBstard, thanks for getting me hooked on EVE.

Qash On a Roam (Better then a spin in station)

Capsuleer report 22092010-1

Quiet night, so went on a roam through Stain/Esoteria. In af, dic & inty (I was in a Wolf), Alliance (SYS-K).
A pod kill was about it, no losses.

Although we had to play safe in DTX8-M, with what looked like a Coven,Stain & Vera Cruz combined fleet, trapping us between their jump bridges. A bit of smack in local, before our scout call out.

It seems that a Apocalypse (Named: I'm not bait) had warped to a belt when a True Sansha's Overlord appeared, so had seemed to start ratting.

We all warped to the last location of the Apoc, but I suspect we were seen as it never came back. So down with the rat. 1.9mil isk (1/10th share, nice bounty even after Corp Tax), better than nothing, .

Then we headed home, a small chase of a hauler but it escaped into a PoS. The way home was clear, but then again we met up with another Alliance roam (in HACs) so the combined count was over 20, so it was an event free burn home.

Qash In Eve (Intro)

Capsuleer report 21092010-1

As this is my first post.
'Hello' fellow EVE pilots.

This is just so I can put my thoughts down, about my life in EVE.

I'll talk about myself later, but I'll driven to write this after a gate camp I was involved in, with fellow Alliance members (SYS-K). Awaiting a Stealth Bomber Gang to jump in.

When over the comms - 'Jonie Qash - you'll never lock anyone, there!' "In harsh tone" (Not the FC).
But before I could ask where should I be, the FC tells us all to be at 'Zero'

Well for me FC is in charge. So from orbiting the gate at 500m, at Zero I went.

Where should I of been?
I wish I'd asked 'Where should I be?' I'm not an experienced inty pilot, my first real flight in anger. Warp disrupter range over 22km, I thought the point was for me to lock the 'sb' before it could cloak and stop in warping off. With the gate jump being 15-18km from zero from the gate.

Note to Self - Ask next time?
