Space Skilling Saturday 194 (Can lightning strike twice? Stupid question.)

Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1750 MA.
Present: Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:-  Sleepyheads are at it again!

Keeping the same team name (just in case). I arrived in good time and moved the ship to the Space Station ready to summon. We depart early with Kahlan joining as we pass Crystal Palace but departing within seconds and without a word. We are beginning a global tour of the planets with Training Grounds, if we global we move to the next one in an anticlockwise direction, stupid I know but it’s something different to do and I’m curious how long we will be stuck at Next Island. We encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1808.

Wolta’s hour:- At 1820 Nocturaline and Phil disconnect for about 3 minutes, Nocturaline reports experiencing severe lag prior to being disconnected. Kills 25 for a 12 PED loot.

Cee’s hour:- Kills 40 for an 11 PED loot needless to say the rest was poor though skills seemed ok. Some Rubber banding when at the helm and lots of target and loot lag at the guns! Hard work with so many lag issues.

Nocturaline’s hour :- kills 45 for a 51 PED Global on a Cosmic Horror Mature (Lightning does strike twice but the second one was feeble). Lots of ammo wasted due to lag on the guns. Nocturaline had to leave the seat to assist in repair on both of my visits to the guns.

Nocturaline takes us to Crystal Palace where I stash tonight’s loot before she warps us to Arkadia Space Station.

This week’s result is a loss of 82 PED and a return of 76%.


Space Skilling Saturday 193 (Reactor Leak!)

Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1754 MA.
Present: Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:-  Sleepyheads are at it again!

I have plenty of time to prepare and no one is on line, my time at auction is leisurely. I notice the crew are on Calypso so I move the ship from Crystal Palace to Calypso Space Station, there are four hostiles in the area, one of them takes five shots at me while I am still in the Crystal Palace safe zone, I guess he wasn’t too bright! Once docked at the Space Station I monitor activities while waiting for the crew to come online. Phil arrives and I summon Nocturaline at 1745. We set about taunting the hostiles, chasing one around the safe zone but he does not bite. Wolta arrives at 1756 and takes station in repair, we continue to harass the hostile but he keeps running. When we leave the safe zone he does not follow. Once beyond Crystal Palace I hand controls over to Wolta who takes us to the training grounds.

Wolta’s hour:- Kills 30 for a 25, a 10 and a 6 PED loot. Nothing to report.

Cee’s hour:- Not a Horror in sight! I head toward the center of the training grounds. Kills 31 for a 683 PED HoF on a Cosmic Horror Young, managing number 43 on the table. No interesting items, skills seemed reasonable but horrors were sparse.

Nocturaline’s hour:- Kills 25 for nothing. I had the pilots view as a gunner which does not work well and was corrected by leaving the seat and getting back in, I also had a lot of lag shooting. Nocturaline reports not many mobs. A reactor issue is somewhat worrying.




Nocturaline returns us to Crystal Palace where we went our separate ways, except Wolta whom we speculated was asleep. Turns out we were right too.

This weeks resulted in a profit of 546 PED which was a return of 276%, more of these please.

Space Skilling Saturday 192 (Sleeping on the job)

Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1754 MA.
Present: Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:-  Sleepyheads never a truer word!

There is plenty of time after login to get the ship to the Space Station to summon Wolta. We are all ready and depart at 1754 with Wolta at the helm. We engage with the Cosmic Horrors at 1813.

Wolta’s hour:-  It took a few minutes to find the first Horror! Kahlan joins at 1825. Wolta struggles to summon me to the turrets as I was dozing! Kills 33 for a couple of 5s an 11 and a 6 PED, not sure it was worth waking up for.

Cee’s hour:- Kills 32 for a 15 and a 5. I finish early as am in danger of sleeping and setting the ship adrift (sounds fun maybe I’ll do it deliberately sometime just to see what the crew do).

Nocturaline’s hour:- Kills 42 for a 6. Nocturaline had to go to repair. By this time I was dozing at regular intervals and if I asked for reports from the crew I made no note of them. I do know that Nocturaline returned us to Crystal Palace.

I apologise for sleeping on the job.

This weeks result was a loss of 143 PED and a return of just 58%.
