Team name:- Sleepyheads very, very Sleepyhea…
We were all ready early, maybe we are practising for next week, with the clocks going forward in a few hours time we will need all the practice we can get. I had offered Yoghurt a turn at the helm and he had accepted so we planned for 45 minute sessions with Nocturaline taking the second stint so that she could provide a little training for Yoghurt. I also gave the pilots a present, this week I would only be using the front gun.
Wolta took the first 45 minutes, it took a little while to build up a stack, it seems things have changed in the Rocktropia training grounds and the Cosmic Horrors are not so plentiful as they were a few weeks ago. My first session at the guns was quite good with a little over 50 PED of loot, my second was not so good, after which Wolta surrendered the helm to Nocturaline as planned. At this point Yoghurt announces he will not be piloting today as he wants to focus on maxing the RK-5. We decided to continue with Nocturaline at the helm and let Wolta have her 15 minutes make up time after.
Nocturaline reported a lack of Horrors and had to move location to pick some up. Plenty of damage was being taken though so there was good repair skills to be gained. I had 3 sessions at the guns, the 1st was quite poor, the 2nd included a single loot of about 18 PED and the 3rd 2 loots around the 20 PED mark.
After an hour Nocturaline offered Wolta the seat for her make up time but Wolta declined so we split the difference and after about 7 minutes I took the helm.
Once I had killed off the group Nocturaline had collected there were no more Horrors and I had to travel a surprisingly long way to find just one, there is definitely a theme here. After moving quite a long way I found a sparsely populated area and roamed there collecting a stack. I used the upper side guns as they are closer to the pilot seat and on my 3rd visit managed a couple of loots around the 10 PED mark. After my time I headed back to Rocktropia Space Station stopping to kill off 3 more on the way.
Skills were not too bad considering the low number of Horrors, maybe once they stop making little updates each week it will improve.
