Space Skilling Saturday 227 (At Calypso III)

Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1749 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads long weekend for Cee

I arrive in plenty of time and summon Nocturaline and Wolta, the later promptly goes AFK. Phil arrives and when Wolta returns we proceed.

Wolta takes us to the Training Grounds via Crystal Palace were both Nocturaline and myself need to visit storage. We encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1806.

Wolta’s hour:- Wolta reports good mob density and a gain of 2.94% in Captain Skill.
Kills: 12 + 17

Cee’s hour:- The Horrors were easy to find but quite widely spaced, skill gains looked a little lower than normal and loot was generally poor.
Kills: 19 + 21

Nocturaline’s hour:- We became very busy in Engineering very quickly and after just 20 minutes Nocturaline called me to the turret for the first time. During the second visit to a turret Nocturaline had to go and assist in Engineering for a spell while I carried on shooting what I could, the horrors seem to have gained in evade capability.
Kills: 20 + 29

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 118
Balance – Loss of 89 PED
Return – 75%

Next week Space Skilling Saturday will remain at Calypso.


Space Skilling Saturday 226 (At Calypso II)

Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1748 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads, what royal wedding??

I leave Next Island at about 1635 in my Quad and head to the ship which is docked at Calypso Space Station. The journey takes about an hour. I arrive in good time, set up this blog and Summon the crew.

Wolta takes us to the Training Grounds via Crystal Palace we encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1759.

Wolta’s hour:- We were kept busy in Engineering, Wolta reports good mob density and a gain of 2.25% on captain. She was also hungry and had to dash to the galley as soon as she left the chair to make a sandwich which was unfortunately too small.
Kills: 16 + 14

Cee’s hour:- Good mob density, I had to stand and manoeuvre during the first session at the guns as the crew were too busy eating cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off! The second group were easy to collect but the ship was quite close to destruction when in the turret. Quite a lot of skill gain messages but loot was low.
Kills: (11 + 13) + 27

Nocturaline’s hour:- A friendly quad was close during the first session at the guns. There were some good loots during this session. Nocturaline reports a gain of 1.85% in captain skill using 50% skill pills.
Kills: 24 + 19

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 124
Balance – Loss of 1.18 PED
Return – 99.67%

Next week Space Skilling Saturday will remain at Calypso (Though we were quite close to moving on).


Space Skilling Saturday 225 (At Calypso I)

Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1756 MA.
Present:- Casper, Nocturaline, Ntina, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads jus passin through?

I arrive with a whole hour to spare, I am already aboard ship so began this log entry and made ready ammo and loot pills, Nocturaline is on line so we chat a little. When I summon Wolta Leroy Casper Hunter transports as well but is not equipped so has to return to the surface for his quad, Nocturaline provides him with RKs.

Wolta takes us to the Training Grounds via Crystal Palace, during the transition a quad takes one shot at us. We wait for Casper at Crystal Palace. We encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1816. After the excitement of getting this SSS on the road the rest is bound to be a disappointment.

Wolta’s hour:- Within five minutes of starting Wolta reports a lack of mobs. Skill gains were poor too.
Kills: 13 + 14

Cee’s hour:- Decent density and skill gain messages seemed more frequent than is usual. Even had a few decent loots but not the one that matters.
Kills: 23 + 18

Nocturaline’s hour:- No Horrors to begin but that changed. A gain of +1.35% in Captain.
Kills: 22+ 20

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 110
Balance – Loss of 53 PED
Return – 84%

Next week Space Skilling Saturday will be staying at Calypso.
