Qash on ISK (invention)

Capsuleer report 29112011-1

Killboard Review: qash.griefwatch.net
Battleclinic rated 64,931th (slipping - due to being ill)

Not been as active as I would like, stuck in station ill, 'pod flu'.

Anyway I've started to cost up my invention (hulks).

Started with changing my PI to produce 'Construction Blocks'
Had 4x Convetor BPC and some de-cryptors for the invention process
Collected my Datacores from the research agents

Run the four invention jobs and 25 hrs later, 2x hulk bpc, 50% successful not the best I have seen before, but about right if I use an Invention Chance Calculator which gave me between 24 and 26% chance per attempt (dependant on the de-cryptor).

This works out to around =17,300.000 per hulk BPC

I had to purchase the Morphite and the Convetors (could save isk by mining maybe next time)

I have the BPO's for the R.A.M Starship Tech and parts to manufacture the two Hulks, now I have to buy the parts (this will depend on market prices to see if I buy the finish goods or the use my BPO's, this can make a big difference)

So far the cost = 84,010,000 isk (plus 1.5 hours)
But as I had the BPCs, datacores and decryptors in stock real cost to me has been = 35,350,000 isk.

So this is already starting to point to PvE (missions Level 4) being more profitable plus selling the datacores, but let me finish. So far I have only spent 1.5 hours of game time on this.

Note to Self - Writing down industrial costing, is showing me the marginal profits I'm making, or not! I will finish and sell these Hulks and work out the cost per hour. Then run Level 4 missions in my Golem + sell the Datacore researched over the same period and compare.

Qash on ISK for PvP

Capsuleer report 16112011-1

Killboard Review: qash.griefwatch.net
Battleclinic rated 64,282th

Hardest thing I've found in Eve is making enough isk to continue to pew pew.

I'm running a Trader Alt, but it just doesn't make me enough isk, to live off, more time on alt, equals more isk, equals less PvP time :(

I have looked at inventing, making and selling Hulks, that made me about two plex worth of isk, in a month, nice, but to tell the truth the amount of time I have spent doing this, I suspect I could of run missions to make the same amount.

So to prove this, I'm going to start the cycle of invention off again to make the hulks. As invention is fairly easy to run in the background, research agents etc. I'll keep a log of costs, time, etc. once I've sold the hulk(s) I'll then spent the same time PvE and compare.

Note to Self - Skill plan, Large guns (ready for the new BC), OVERHEAT (still, still, still not doing this)...

Qash a Drama

Capsuleer report 07112011-1

Killboard Review: qash.griefwatch.net
Battleclinic rated 67679th, (lowsec roamer)

Flying the Pilgrim this past week. No as good as a Curse but can be used in a Black Ops Drop.

Got in a fight in Low Sec Renarelle (0.3), For the loss of a Rapier, got an Astarte, Cyclone, Drake 2x Harbinger, cane also there was a pod kill so big sec status loss for someone in the corp. I dropped over 2 pts. I can say that the reason the corp does well is the FC is great and many we engage just don't seem to be organised.

Also been on a suicide BC roam, (in a Nano Cane) there was to be no coming back, which proved the point that good FC and correct fleet organisation wins.

First engagement, we hit another BC roam, with Scimitar support, but without a loss held the field in 5-D82P. 15 (Llama) losses 0 - 11 (Fatal Ascension) losses 9+1 pod

End engagement we hit a defending 0.0 fleet BC, HIC, Scimitar support, ECM, cmd ship, Rapier and Lachesis, in OW-TPO 14 (Llama) losses 14 + 6 pods 18 (Executive outcomes) losses 0. But I wish I recorded comms I haven't heard some many guys laugh as we died.
I noticed that the onyx didn't get on my killmail, (didn't run so his bubble doesn't count :), but it did get the guys pods

Logistics 5 completed, corp Skill requirement DONE.

Note to Self - Skill plan, looking at Large guns (ready for the new BC), OVERHEAT (still, still not doing this)...
