Space Skilling Saturday 270 (At Rocktropia III) THE LAST?

Start Location:- Rocktropia Space Station.
Time:- 1904 MA.
Present:- Alice, Nocturaline, Ntina, Wolta and Myself
Team name:- Sleepyheads Aches & Pains

I arrive and prepare, we have a new recruit this week, Alice Pandora Eole, Phil is unable to make it this week. Once Wolta arrives we depart with her at the helm.

Wolta’s hour:- After 20 minutes Ntina arrives. We score a 123 PED global on a Cosmic Horror Young during the first session in the turret. I asked if anyone wanted to include Monria this circuit, no one said anything so we will go to Calypso. Loot was pretty good, Wolta has nothing to report.
Kills: 8 + 8

Cee’s hour:- Density was good, loot seemed reasonable but skills were very poor. I did nothing but struggle, this is by far the worst interface I’ve seen in any game, I could not return to the forward view after using the look feature except by chance, the whole thing just crashed at one point and I had to wait to login, it is not possible to type while turning. It took so long to maneuver the ship into a position that would let me use a turret that the ship was almost destroyed by the time I got there and I had to wait for repair before going into the turret. This is either designed by a complete incompetent or a way for MA to get a little more money from us, probably both. I have decided and announced to the crew that “THIS IS THE LAST SSS“, if they make the interface usable I will review that. I do this for fun and I am having none so fuck it. I finished after only 40 minutes, I just want this to be over.
Kills: 22

Nocturaline’s hour:- Loot seemed to drop off a bit. Nocturaline reports a gain of 1.62% in Captain skill using pills, half way to level 38.
Kills: 16 + 14 + 11

Nocturaline takes us to the space station.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 79
Balance – Gain of 100 PED
Return – 142%

Next week and for as far ahead as I can currently see there will not be an SSS.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have participated in SSS over the past 5 years, especially Nocturaline, Phil and Wolta who have been the core crew during this time, I apologize to you all for this decision and am saddened by it myself, almost every Saturday night for five years is quite a commitment and to lose this is painful. Hopefully something will be done to improve this complete fuck of an upgrade but somehow I doubt it.

Space Skilling Saturday 269 Cancelled

I was not available to run this session as I was at Nephew George’s Birthday party.


Space Skilling Saturday 268 (At Rocktropia II)

Start Location:- Rocktropia Space Station.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil and Myself
Team name:- Sleepyheads update woes

I arrive and prepare, Nocturaline summons me and we transfer to the ship. Wolta informed us that she may not make it we wait until 1900 then leave.

Cee’s hour:- Loot seemed OK as did skills, density was a bit low. Interface and view is still seriously fucking shit, how could anyone have thought this a good idea? Had to stand during the second session. When I left the guns after the last session I got stuck, normally I would enter and exit a seat but I could not see one. T put me outside the ship on top near the front I walked to the starboard side of the pilot seat and fell through to the stairs.
Kills 13 + (9 + 6) + 6

Nocturaline’s hour:- I needed guidance to find two horrors at the end of the first session. Nocturaline reports a gain of 1. 3% in Captain.
Kills: 14 + 12 + 9

Nocturaline takes us to the space station.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 69 Dude!
Balance – Loss of 19 PED
Return – 91%

Next week we will be in the Rocktropia system.


Space Skilling Saturday 267 (At Rocktropia I)

Start Location:- Next Island Space Station.
Time:- 1904 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself
Team name:- Sleepyheads 1st post KBD FUCK

I arrive early and in Ancient Greece where I watch a play in the amphitheatre before warping to Rocktropia Space Station and beginning SSS, we engage the Horrors at 1907.

Wolta’s hour:- Wolta finished about 10 minutes early and reports a gain of 1.43 in Captain skill, good mob density except at the end and that the new interface was a pain. I did not notice much of what was going on mostly I was getting used to repair with this interface.
Kills: 14 + 5

Cee’s hour:- No idea about loot or skills or distribution, its more than just the KBD that’s been fucked, the interface is challenging to use, and this session was not at all enjoyable. The whole thing is even clunkier than it was, all 3rd person views are closer, the gunner view is now so close that its hard to find the mobs, not happy about this downgrade at all.
Kills 12 + 21

Nocturaline’s hour:- Reports 1% gain in Captain skillvand good mob density.
Kills: 12 + 14

Nocturaline takes us to the space station.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 78
Balance – Loss of 53 PED
Return – 79%

Next week we will be in the Rocktropia system.
