Space Skilling Saturday 199 (At Arkadia V, Cee fails)

Start Location:- Arkadia Space Station.
Time:- 1850 MA.
Present: Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:-  Sleepyheads Remember the Fallen.

We all arrive in good time and assemble on the main deck for two minutes silence to remember the Fallen. After which we take our posts and Wolta takes us to the training grounds.

Wolta’s hour:- Kahlan joins at 1855 just after we begin to take damage. Kills 38 for 5, 9, 5, 7, 34 and 7 PED loots, pretty good but not the global that will get us out of here.

Cee’s hour:- Having trouble staying awake, woke up to find Varyag right in front of me and had to turn away hard. Kills 30 for an 8 and a 33 PED loot, can’t keep my eyes open.

Nocturaline’s hour:-  Kills 6 for nothing before the ship blew, this is the first I knew about it. Nocturaline said she had over 40 horrors, I couldn’t make the gun work as it jammed in the up position on entry to the turret, even zoom would not free it, so had to exit and re-enter then the ship was positioned so close to the stack that I couldn’t see what I was doing. We repair and then return to the stack which Nocturaline drags back to the Space Station. I’m not sure but I think I slept through almost all of Nocturaline’s hour.

A loss of 13 PED being a return of 94%.

I send apologies to the crew on the following day as I was not functioning on our return to the Space Station.




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.
