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 190 (Disconnected if French)

Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1800 MA.
Present:- Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads random shit happens

I arrive in time and take the ship to Crystal Palace to pick up Nocturaline and Wolta, Nocturaline teleports in but Wolta is not on line yet. Antzy needs a summons so I return to the Space Station to Summon and trade with Antzy. While there Wolta logs in, I ask Nocturaline to take us back to Crystal Palace while I trade and once there I Summon Wolta who takes the helm and takes us to the training grounds.

Wolta’s hour:- We encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1813, kills 28 for a 30 PED loot. Nothing to report. At one point all the French were disconnected, which makes a change.

Cee’s hour:- Horrors are sparsely distributed. Kills 39 for 28, 15 and 11 PED loots,  apologised to the crew for the lack of damage, the spacing was horrible.

Nocturaline’s hour:- Kills 38 for a 12 PED loot. Reports low mob density and +1.93 on Captain. Also experienced lag.

A loss of 43 PED and a return of 86%, not too bad I suppose.

Space Skilling Saturday 186 (Shore Leave 1)

Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1754 MA.
Present:-  Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads are in trouble!

I arrive in good time on Calypso, for a change I remember the gold to upgrade the SI then head to the Space Station and upgrade. Wolta joins just as I position the ship. I summon her and and as soon as she is aboard head towards Crystal Palace where Wolta takes the helm and takes us to the training grounds. Nocturaline and Phil have taken shore leave, I’m beginning to suspect there is something going on there!

Wolta’s hour:- we encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1806 when Wolta’s hour begins. Within 5 minutes I need coffee! Kills 14 for a 14 PED loot.. Wolta over shoots the hour by 5 minutes and reports skills were good but that with just one at repair it was difficult.

Cee’s hour:- I assist Wolta to get the ship to full repair before I begin. Kills 36 for a 16 PED loot which included a generic fuse. I have to visit the TT during the first of three sessions at the guns to get more ammo, I was using my emergency supply and had forgotten to buy any! I had to stand briefly during the second session after which there was just one Horror left! I take us to Crystal Palace after.

A loss of 35 PED and a return of 79%.
