As a typical nullspace coward, I currently have a problem, a regularly repeating one.
Well, maybe not really, but I’m too worried about this story and should be more relaxed about it.
We are talking about the regularly recurring events in EvE. Be it currently the Winter Nexus against the Sansha Nation, Helloween against Blood Raiders or similar events.
The last few events I have not participated for a relatively simple reason. I wasn’t in Empire and even though the sites are here in Nullsec, I didn’t really dare to fly them.
This may also be due to the fact that I don’t have the appropriate ships on site. Most of my fleet is safely tucked away in my home station, while in nullsec I’m only on the road with the bare essentials.
This usually does not include a useful ship for the event sites. Of course, now I could do the scan complexes with a Buzzard without any problems, but in the same breath I would be free game for everything else. Even an Astero could easily drive me away in this context, because even a drone is stronger than none.
So a solution is needed, as I find the Aurora skins in particular very pleasant and beautiful for some reason. This will now be distributed especially in the winter.
And here comes out my problem again, I’m what skins meanwhile a small hunter and collector and try to get them accordingly. I’m now some beautiful skins that are easy to reach simply by the rags and to fly the individual sites is also always quite fun.
So I have to find a solution. This solution is now an Alt Char to ski. Also here the choice is very big what can be skilled. Basically, this character should of course be able to do a lot and that always takes time. Means as a basis always serve the cybernetic skills for the implants.
Followed by skills for scanning and then for the fight. So I have the chance to give Sendriss these skins, maybe not directly and immediately but in the course of the next year. But there is another problem. I either have to stop skilling with Sendriss or I have to provide my account with the MCT – the Multi Character Training, to upgrade the other char. The latter would mean to take a lot of ISK in hand again and for that I need a constant income despite the base of my fuel production. Also again a decision that must be made and has some effects. So at Sendriss are currently some long term skills like Fighter V in training or also Capital Industrial Ship V. So first stories for the long term planning and after that I also slowly run out of ideas what I could still do. So after finishing these skills the alt will be slowly raised and I think it’s a good idea.
Some ships I have already planned here, besides the obligatory scan ship like a Buzzard I have planned the Gila, Tengu and a Loki together with the skills. As an all-round ship for the events, the Praxis is actually always quite good. Depending on the event, there are also different requirements for the ship size and therefore at least every ship type and every ship size should be there.
But I definitely plan to do more in the events again and an Empire-Alt is the best solution here. I can finally redeem the skins on my main as well.
What I will probably acquire, however, are two more ships for null space. A blockade runner as well as a corresponding scan Loki.
With this I would be relatively safe in nullsec and could chase away and displace everything that wants to scan quite well.
The corresponding blockade runner would serve primarily for me as a collector to collect the goods.
I could imagine that quite well as another variant, if here event sites are there for scanners.
Thanks to Jezaja there is also something to win this time. You have the chance to get a partner skin for the Stratios.
Just write me in the comments how you would handle this situation. The winner will be drawn at random.
All comments until 19.12.2021 will be considered.
