The past week and RvB

Well the last week has been for the most part pretty slow. Most of the members coming to Eve Ventures took this past week to clean up some last minute items and release roles in corps that they were in. We were also contacted by some previous members that orginially flew under the NAI flag and disappeared. So right now things seem to be coming along nicely with the new and old gather yet again under the same flag.

So while everyone was getting their things in order. A few of us decided to go play RvB. For those that do not know what RvB is in Eve Online. It is two corporations that are at constant war. Think of it as controlled high sec pvp. Matches are organized usually consisting of T1 frigates. As well as your regular station-camping warfare. There are rules and restrictions in this faction war set by the two corps. For example while we were there no ECM boats(Caldari Jamming Boats) are allowed to be used in there purpose EXCEPT when your respective corp is being station camped at it HQ.
The Corporations are respectively: Red Federation and the Blue Republic.

This high sec battle takes place in the Verge Vendor region (Gallente Space). So if you are KOS to the Gallente probably wont be able to get into the group with out raising some standings. Which 1 of our guys had to grind and train Diplomacy up so he could play.

We joined the Red Federation. So I cant really speak on how things work for the Blues. But from our few days there we noticed that the Reds were usually losing on the battle field. And after a few losing battles you do kind've find yourself frustrated with the limitations. In my opinion it seemed that the Reds played to nice and stuck to protocol and carebare ways of fighting. While the Blues...would consistantly station camp the RED HQ and also gate camp. For whatever reasoning....the Reds do not do this often or employ these tatics. From a 3 day trip into the red corp...most of our battles were organized with the Blues...with underlying contracts of ship use before hand. Example...In my last fight with them before leaving...we had a 15 man fleet of frigs. The blues couldnt form a 15man fleet so the Red FC at the time gave Blue FC permission to to field 2 cruisers, 2 Destroyers, and 6 frigs....And with an agree'ed fighting location with us arriving on the scene first...we were pwn'ed. Pointing out to the FC that even though we showed up first...the Blues, in my opinion were be handed the fight and field advantage...OH and i forgot to mention...apparently we were not allowed to primary the Blue FC regardless what ship he showed up in....WTF right.

Being the last frigate to go down in the battle I was able to see the whole thing play out. We showed up...the blues entered system and warped in 30km from the starting location...making our frigs having to burn out to them. Being that Blues were smart about this...not only this they warp at a distance, they also fitted for distance. So we had a few frigates INSTA POP right off the start. From there is was a mix of Primary being switched every few secs and reds try to get to the new primary and Blues taking us out 1 by 1. was good laughs. But after 3 days of the same we were ready to leave and finish getting things to our New system.

We scouted areas looking at belts in systems, jumps from low sec, and jumps from null sec. Hoping to get into alittle bit of everything. Yesterday, pretty much everyone put in there application into Eve Ventures and were accepted. Kill Joy, the Eve Ventures CEO, was on briefly last night so we didnt have to wait long for our acceptance into the corp. The location for us setting up base was given out to us on Sunday. So me and another pilot gather all of our assests in 1 location and started the frieghter runs. I completed my couriers yesterday, but before I logged off last night. My buddy informed me he still had about 49 jumps left on his frieghter trip...which also includes him having to stop off at a few stations to pick up contracts and items. LOL that sucks. But we should officially be up and running at least me and 3 other pilots on starting up some of the industrial aspects. Our PVP group is still putting there ships together...but we may very well be getting into a roam this weekend into low or null sec. After looking at all the assets that were moved and the attitude of the corporation we joked about it last night when someone said " looks like we are actually doing something"

lol...till next time.

-Oh also...two WH bloggers that I been reading have made changes as well and moved to null sec for a new operations. So good luck to Star Defender, writer of Eve Online Wormholes, and Quivering Palm, writer of The Planet Risk Show and part of SI Radio Corp.

Operation...recover small POS

SO ...I log on today to a notifications going blinky blinky....seems that someone found my small POS and decided to shoot at it while bored.

Out of chance I convo'ed this person and started chatting with them about the POS and how it became left all by itself. Offering to unanchor and give it to him...he came back with 100mil for finders fee....never really expecting to get this POS back and being the cost of it all....I decided that wouldnt be too bad but notified him that i wouldnt pay until it was back in highsec safety.

So far it is going good...the guy had to log off...and I am currently unanchoring the Tower itself.

So I would like to thank LmarrFudd for his assistance of POS recovery.

What has happened in the past 5 days....

                             ***Warning: This is a long Post***

The answer to the post in short....ALOT.

So in my last posting I was writing about how I decided to leave the class 1 WH I was in and cashed out with around 480 Million isk. And there were a few comments and someone asked what my next plan of action was....another WH? Yes. And....well it kinda went like this...

It seemed that my recent activities was attracting some of the corpies and fellow pod pilots that used to be in the corp. So after docking up in a station...Me and my other lead guy of the corp start to figure out how we would move this into a corporation operations...But for the time being...just me and him, until our other pilots that we keep in contact with join back up into the corporation.....

***Brief stopping point...when we started WH's a month or so after the expansion came out....we were 40 strong...setup in a class 3 with over 2 billion isk investment...We get in the WH, i think there was about 16 of us in the start, and get everything anchored and online...took about 10 hrs just getting things anchored and online. We finished up 45min before downtime. Feeling accomplished we all log for the night. I get a call 5hrs later, being asked to log onto EVE to see the POS. When I logged on...the Control Tower was sitting 60km away from the closest structure. Our ships were in the SMA except for a few people. We couldnt unachor any structures or access our ships. After reporting this to CCP, it took 3 weeks for everything to be resolved...but the effect already took place among the players. People quit the game, some still log on every now and then.... only a select few are still here chancing WH everynow and then.***

So my co-founder tells me that we should plan on being back in by back in WH today was the plan. And this convo was happening this past Saturday....**Still with me, lol** Me being the determined one and already having a POS starting setup ready to go....I started Scanning. Found a few dead WHs and a few already taken. After about an hour...BINGO...another very nice Class 1. So, right away I start moving things in....starting with a small tower, SMA, and Corp Hangar, with enough fuel for 10 days. Seeing how the WH was empty according to scan...and the system I came in through was empty AND according to dotlan hasnt had any jumps in the past few hours...I figured I was in the clear...***Thoughts on where this is going?***

SO speed up the process i start moving things with both of my toons....On my last trip I get back to the WH to find 16 ppl in system and every type of ship going through that WH...No they didnt kill me....BUT they did collapse the Entrance to the WH before my eyes....Leaving a ONLINED Small Tower, SMA, and Corp Hangar with fuel.....DOH. Lesson learned here....ALWAYS leave a toon in the WH.

OK so moving on....I still have WH kits I take a break briefly to go shoot some NPC's and come back to scanning. WH first try....Class 2 with a class 1 and class 3 inside. The class 1 and class 2 had SOME CRAZY setups in them....everything being faction structures...VERY impressive indeed. So I continue to scope out the class 3....OMG what a beautiful site....No structures, No wrecks, No presence. What was on scan...43 Cosmic Anomalies. ....Yes...43 COMBAT SITES...just waiting to be destroyed.

So again...I decided to go mobile this time and grab my WH orca on one toon and proceed in the WH...I make the transit through the class 2 and get into the class 3. I proceed to get the orca in a good SS and cloak. I then start my first site with Enyo...Now I have pretty good skills for the Drake. Been a drake pilot forever and do everything in the drake and have trained the skills to do so. HOWEVER....It takes FOREVER to run a class 3 site solo drake style. During the last wave of my first site, I casually hit directional expecting another empty scan other the the wrecks...Umm...Nope not this time...I see a Proteus named "I see you" with Sister Combat probes out....LMAO...I got the hell out of dodge quick and got to a Safe spot. And for the next 20 minutes I scanned down the rest of the signatures in the WH....and the only WHs inside the class 3 was the one i came in from the class 2 and a WH leading to Null sec. Well I have flown orcas through null sec and with a cloak I will do it all day long....I have done it many many times and so far have only lost 1 due to error on my part. *Thx Solar Fleet*....But no I had to go back through and get to High Sec....That was my route. So Changing up the drake and grabbing my Buzzard from the ship bay on the orca...I use the web/warp routine to get the Orca moving quick.  Expecting to see Mr. Proteus at the WH waiting....he was no where to be seen...So I get my orca and buzzard through no inside the class two...I dont know why ...but I completely forget to web my orca and took the buzzard striaght out into highsec. So ok...waiting for the orca to align and warp...I am sweating bullets....All I can think about is "great...another freaking loss in less than a day"...and then sure as hell...Mr. Proteus pops up on overview...11km from the orca..and I am at about 50% warp....with a full 6 seconds...this guy failed to lock me...So I get the orca in warp heading to the High Sec WH. Already there to meet me was again...Mr. Proteus...I land 6km from the Gate...And this dude is grinning I am sure...and then I hit AB....again...and thank god...I get to the WH and jump into High Sec before any dmg is done to the orca. After that...I docked up and havent brought that acct online a break.

So that was just over Saturday and Sunday...What about the past 2 days...well...My blog is called "Eve Ventures" and another buddy that i have been flying with for sometime...we get the feeling of wanting to shoot things...So we meet up...him in a in a Hawk. And we roam low sec...after a few attempts...we just couldn't get anyone to bite. Then we spot another drake...and we go for it...the only guy in system with us...on the gate my buddy is also gate tanking. Then a Harbinger shows worries...we are still good and I am taking out their drones...And then it seemed all of the *Rooks and Kings corp/alliance* not sure what they are...come through the short...we died.

We refit once back in high sec....and start to ponder....what next...and then we start thinking about the wars that have been against us in the past...other industrial corps, mercs, etc....So we look up some of the industrials that had a grudge at one point. We find them mining....oh let the good times start...we are griefing...I know its terrible, but it was so fun and also funny. We were watching the local chat start to blow up...And we started just by looting wrecks to see who would shoot at us...let alone the past two days...have been very amusing.

Now if we could do this to a full degree...take everything we have enjoyed doing and put it all in one place...that would be the best...and we all agree'ed. In which...a new corporation was born...EVE for those that havent read back to the beginning of this blog... lets review shall we:

1st post and the definition of Venture

And although we are still setting the corp up and havent formed under it as of yet....we have already started our ....our...whatever we doing atm. Right now we have a corp contest for next week starting monday. And it is kinda like the Hulkgeddon thing but not. Pretty much ...we are not suicide ganking. The rules atm are:

Contest: Most Highsec kills
Start: Monday
End: Friday @ 10pm in the pilot's respective Timezone
-High sec only
-No suicide ganking, so you must be engaged first by target first.
-T1 ships allowed to be used: BC and below
-T2 ships allowed to be used: T2 Frigates only
-Going by a point system...1 ship kill= 1 point regardless of ship class.

Reward to winner: 10mil isk

So I think I have everything there...Yeah its not much but its all for fun and when we do things like these...especially to industrials that have grieved us...we showed in that past two days...we were able to secure systems for our own industrial needs...which was nice.

Is this how we are going to operate at all times NO not at Right now the plan is as follows....each week or every other week...we are planning on switching feed the need for everyone. When we decide to do WH...a few of the scanners will start looking...once a WH has been found...we all will move in and get to work...once we can no longer run the WH...and we pull out...another member will decided what we do...say he wants to low sec roam or null sec roam...then for the next week ...we do that...and so on. SO if you were to ask for a description it would be along the lines of:

WH/Exploration/Industrial/PVP/Missions/Mining Ops/War-Decs/High-sec/low-sec/null-sec....etc.

Its a very very general and very very broad spectrum of activities we will be taking part in. So if you see us around...stop by and say "Hi" ....We may not be the biggest, best, or the baddest of EVE...But you can bet we will always be having fun!

Till next time!

Packing up, moving out, and cashing in...Class 1

So last night when I log on...I had only 4 sites left to clear...cosmic anomalies that is. After clearing them, I proceeded to scan down the rest of the signatures in my Class 1 WH. And I did this in my drake so it took longer then it should've. But what I found was:

- 9 Grav sites
-10 Ladar sites
-2 Radar sites

If I only had a WH kit ready...I struggled with the decision to pull out of this WH or not. I was really thinking about mining those grav sites and maybe I should've. But after popping through my low sec static...I noticed I was only 4 jumps from highsec and 10 jumps from a Trade Hub. If nothing else I needed fuel, so I jumped Alala through to pick up fuel with a rigged out badger. At least now I had another 10 days to make a decision. After thinking about it and actually writing down the things I needed...I quickly realized that I didnt want to continue my "rushed" pattern of getting things into the WH from where ever. So I started packing up.

Leaving Alala behind at the POS to start offlining and unpacking, I went ahead and took Enyo to the Trade Hub to sell off the loot. After 4 days of being in the Class 1 WH...I cashed out with a total of 480 million isk. Not too bad for a last minute effort. And yet that was the most expensive destroyer I was flying through low sec carrying all that My chest was pounding the whole way. But now looking at how much I made over investment. I orginally invested around 200 mil isk. So I came out making back what I put into the Small POS, Corp Hangar, Ship Maint. Array, and fuel....and 280mil over very nice.

Back at the POS, things were going along smoothly...The low sec group of systems was fairly one point I saw 15 people...but I only ever saw one ship. So as arrays were offlining and unachoring, best believe I was smashing the scan button in fear of someone catching me with my pants down so to say.

Flying Enyo back to the system with my K-162, again the path was quite...I did manage to catch sight of a Domi going the same jumps I was...I have to admit the kinda made me nervous. I started checking profiles...and I would say 75% of the people in the systems were CVA or CVA counterparts.

Thing were moving smoothly at the POS...Once I got Enyo back into the WH...I boarded my Drake and orbited the WH waiting for someone to come through. Alala moved the first load through a system and unloaded at one of the low sec stations. Thankfully everything only consisted of 2 trips with the badger II. After emptying the fuel into the badger the only thing left to do once returning to WH was offlining and unachoring the POS. To my surprise...the unachoring only took 15min...for some reason I was thinking that it took 30min. But as the POS went through its count down...I logged off Alala, and Enyo warped to and sat 50km off the POS cloaked.

15min later....Alala comes on...packs up and both Alala and Enyo warp out of WH to the safety of a station. HOWEVER...I still do have a scan alt in the WH....I figure I will leave him in the WH and check on it everynow and then. Like I said earlier...I definitely left some sites undone...mostly the Grav Sites....SO IF ANY MINING CORP or anyone else that reads this and would like to get access to this WH. Just contact me on Enyo Bellona. I have all the Bookmarks for sites left in the WH...and all I have to do is scan the new WH with my Scan Alt that is left in the WH.

Adding to the stocks and planning for the next move

Ahh...another day passes...the quite sounds of W-space is haunting yet pleasing at the same time.

After checking Dotlan, I noticed that there were 7 jumps made in my WH system. seemed to just be people passing through. I am guessing that not many people think that Class 1 WH's are profitable. Which of course is pleasing me with untouched sites.

So after logging and and doing the inital Directional looked to be like I am still the only one in here...which is good. I have yet to activate any WH leaving, but that doesnt mean that my passing vistors are not activating them either. Wspace life so far is continuing to be good to me. I ran about 9 sites last night leaving me with 4 more cosmic anomalies to go before i start scanning the signatures down and working on them. As of last night I was showing 23 either a few more sites spawned or a few k-162 had developed. My "normal" number of sig's has been a 19 for the first 2 days. Well we can always hope for more sites. With the way things are going looks like I probably am going to need to do a fuel run as well. Still trying to figure out if I should clear the grav sites or not....I think I will base this on my scan today...or invite a few corp mates in do get it done.

Chatted with a few buddies of mine to find out that they are still in a War dec and hiding in WH space. These guys just are not having any luck. I was briefly with them in the corp that they are in, but only for 3 days. I couldn't grasp the way the corp was being ran for a WH operation. And I wont be going into many details. But after leaving 1 wormhole that had "dried-up", these guys quickly found a new WH that was ok and they were just happy to get the move down quickly with there war still going on.*this is the bad luck part*...Shortly after getting moved in and settled...they had a roaming crew enter there WH...and if i remember right...these were BC's, T3's, and Recons that entered. So seeing how the pvp experience wouldnt be in their favor, of course they stayed with'n the confines of their POS. And the new vistors helped themselves to all of the sites in the WH....yes....ALL OF THE SITES...LMAO....omg I almost started crying I was laughing so hard.

Now I am not a mean person, but the irony of the whole situation is just too funny. I was in that corp for 3 days. And I left it 3 days ago...and I have now been in my Class 1 WH for 3 days...So far in 3 days according to price checks on the market, I am sitting on roughly between 400-500million isk of loot between Melted Nano Ribbons, Neural Networks, and Sleeper Data Libraries. I figured this up after telling them about what I have done since I left the corp they are in. Yeah I probably could be making more in a class 2 or definitely a class 3, but hey....who's this guy.

So what next...Well I still have this WH to we have that. After talking with my buddies in other corp...they are unsure of what they are going to do...but I definitely need to get some "WH Kits" made up. After talking with StarDefender, last night, I recieved some handy tips for my larger POS setups. *Thanks Alot Star* So I am pretty excited. My toons are on there way to Iteron Mark V's. I think the closest is 18 days away. I roll all Caldari pilots so....yeah...have to train some But the next WH...I will definintely have my "mining crew" in with there will be no wondering if I should mine or not.

The other debate is whether or not to Start a completely a new corp just for WH purposes and leave from the Industrial named corp I have now. This is another one I am unsure of. But which means....that there will be more typing in the future when I do figure these things out. Till then...the sleepers are out there!

1 wreck 2 wreck 3 wrecks...what happened in here?

So still being pretty excited about getting into Wormholes and finding a class 1 home recently, I tend to get that..... "I wonder if someone is in my Wormhole" feeling while at work yesterday.

I had that run of cat-and-mouse with the russian that found the WH and to be honest...I know I havent seen him, but I also started to wonder if he just logged off. So yesterday during a break, I decided to log onto Dotlan and check the status of my Class 1 WH. Looking at the stats I can see where he popped my scan alt's ship...and the sleeper kills and jumps....Everything looked like how it should. And still even later in the day...the thought continued to brew in my head...."SOMEONE IS IN MY WH"....I was so sure and so determined that there was...

So I look again on dotlan on my last break...sure as $H!T...There are some Sleepers being killed and I saw about 4 jumps...Damn...someone is robbing my site and laughing.

The day comes to an end and I eventually head home. Eager to jump on EVE and wreck some havoc on whoever was in....Yet I did not....I pushed the desire to the side and got some other things i needed to get done and spent some time watching TV with the wife...and then she put on her "TLC" and well I can only sit through so many "What not to wear" TV shows without twitching....

Finally...fired up the Laptop and launched my ship loads on grid...I immediately start hitting scan...and lo behold....wrecks and corpse everywhere....umm WTF happened here....Seeing the corpse names I decided to convo these people up. None of the names were of the russian guy...and I was thinking maybe he was in here and these unforunate people got to meet him up close and personal.

However, they did not. They were part of a young corp and under 6 month old toons. Apparently, these guys found the WH, I am guessing from a High Sec entrance, and decided to didnt look like they did much to my either more sites spawn'ed and it balanced out...or they could hack the class 1. But as they decided to leave...the WH collapsed on them and guess what...yep, none of them had a probe launcher or they decided to shoot themselve out among each other....LMAO.

So there was no Mr. Russian and after figuring out what happened, I proceeded to run some of the cosmic anomalies. I ran for only a few hours...3 i think...and I still have about 13 sites left to go before I start up on the Cosmic Signatures. Now I know I have a few LADAR sites...and I do have gas harvesters in the WH with me...and I know that there are a few Grav sites...So now I am trying to figure out...since I have to get some more fuel in a few days...Should I go ahead and pull in a Large POS and Intensive Refining Array and knock out some of these grav sites?

I am not of yet...on which I am going to do...but maybe I will pull in a few corp mates for the Grav sites and share the wealth alittle.

Moving back into WH life...Found a Class 1

So Sunday night I was scanning...just to see if I could find another WH and what things inside were looking like. From talking to other people in game and reading a few other seemed that alot of people are finding that the WH's are more and more occupied. So i didnt expect to find anything worth while.

However before i logged last scan...BAM...found me a Wormhole. Again with no real expectations, I decided to take a looksy inside. What I found was an Class 1 that was not occupied. On first inital scan of the system...33 Cosmic Anaomlies and 19 Cosmic Signatures....OH YES...I did the most unprepared move in ever. I didnt have any WH kits ready to go...and my normal routine consisted of packing up the ocra and going mobile style. However...this class one brought a new aspect to my attention that I forgot....Orcas dont fit...and neither do Transport ships...ARGGH....ok.

So I quickly start buying things:

1 small Gallente tower
2 weeks worth of fuel
1 corp hangar

Ok so i should be good...and it was a race against time, because the WH was near closing...I get my scan alt in so if anything was to happen i could find it again. I get Enyo into the WH with the Drake...and alala is flying all over creation to pick up the needed materials...I get Alala to the WH...I see the WH...I go to Click the "enter" button...i see no more WH...It literally closed right then and there.

*SIGH*...ok so on my drake i do have scan i commence to start scanning the signature to find the new WH. In doing this i found quite a few LADAR and Grav sites. I didnt keep track because i was looking for that unknown status. But luck prevails and I didnt have to scan down every signature...I locate the new WH and find out that it appears that I have a Static Low...which i am actually happy about...should be less traffic. So now I pack everything into the ORCA and make my 19 jump trip to the closest high sec. ***Oh and this happened to be around Old Man Star (I think that is the system name)***. I pull out the badger and pack in the POS, hangar, SMA, and a week of fuel. I started jumping through the low sec systems with my heart just pounding expecting to get caught.

Now I make it to the i figure hellz yeah...all lights are green...I start to deploy the POS so my toons have a place to Sit...Start putting the fuel into the POS ....and guess what...I got the wrong Isotopes...I have minmatar fuel and not gallente...*ANOTHER SIGH* back into low sec with the badger to find fuel.

*Fuel gathered...POS Launched...Logged for the Night*

Now last night...excited about my new found treasure WH...I log on expecting to see that Beautiful message that the grid needs to load....No message...(*$#%(#@_)@(# and all that. lets see who is in my new home. ok no worries. This guy actually warped to the POS too so i had all the info i needed. Russian, 3 man corp...and he also had an alt in the WH with a Cheetah. So me and him played cat and mouse for awhile. He did manage to get my scan alt and just destroyed the ship and left the POD...not sure why but ok. So I start clearing sites...not really worried about this guy...he was staying cloaked. Now i get about two sites cleared and figure'd i should start Salvaging.

I always fit a cloak on non-combat i am out salvaging and i see combat probes (with russian name) out in no worries...I cloak. 30 sec later...the probes go away...So i start to continue a few wreck dissappear from his his combat probes come out again....I see them so i cloak...*Nothing better or funnier the ninja salvaging your own kills*  We repeat this process for about an hour or two. I even started to clear sites again...with using this same process...Eventually Mr.Russian got tired of playing games and I didnt see combat probes again. So either he logged or he decided to leave the WH.

Looking at my salvage last night, I think so far I am running around 100million isk worth of loot. Not too shabby for a Class 1. And depending how much more I can pull in through the combat sites...I am thinking about bring in a large POS to hit up the Grav sites. Last night I only ran 7 sites. And i figured it up time wise...I can run, clear, and salvage 3 sites in 1 hour. So two hours of work netting me around 100mil...

SO happy that i have moved back into WH...and I will probably stay with WH now for awhile. I am actually curious on how long I can live in my current WH and still be productive. Tonight i will see if anymore sites spawn'ed. But till then...Fly safe and fly smart!

COME ON....not again!!!

Ya just figures! What is it they always say...if it seems to good to be true then it probably is.

What a if you read my last post, you know that i found a new corp and still was residing in 0.0(null sec). Well man was life sweet. In fact life was so sweet, that some of the Bellona family also ended up down in Null sec bringing there Mobile Orca Wrecking Crew with them. And then....3 weeks....I dont believe it was a full 3 weeks in the corp....and we get the email:

 Darklore United will be closing down!

It doesnt go with out saying....EVERYONE in the corp learned this news with a sadness in there heart. From what I am seeing...I guess a few things happened in the upper echlon of power...and the current operations just wasnt possible to keep up without creating security risks. SO...With this news I had to do something and something quick, because of the weekend deadline, I didnt want any of my crew to be stuck in 0.0 in mining ships...LOL...neutral to everyone. (However, a buddy showed me a video last night of a guy doing pvp in a HULK and kicking @$$).

So after getting all my assests in the station...we have that will be going back to high sec...Orca, Hulk, Kestrel...lots of loot, personal BPOs, ammo, minerals, .....the big things were Orca, Hulk, and BPOS....lots of potential isk lost here. So what do I do....I do what every Enyo does best...I pack the orca up...Strap Alala in as the Orca pilot...Cloaking device installed on the big beast. Enyo gets into a Kestrel for the needed scouting with cloaking device installed....

If you havent guessed by now....YES, I flew and jumped the orca some 30 jumps through NULL SEC...and Yes i made it all the way to empire with out getting popped. So what is the going rate for Orca's and Hulk's...I considered myself making about 600mil since i didnt lose those ships...and we wont even talk about BPOs. But safe in Empire...It was time to find the next thing to do.....Tune in for the Next Post coming at ya very SOON!

Oh...and to my now former CEO: Whiskey514, I hope you find something else in Eve. It was a very sad day to hear you were closing down. Good Luck!
