Space Skilling Saturday 209 (Sleepyheads are freakin’ 4)

Start Location:- Rocktropia Space Station.
Time:- 1859 MA.
Present: Nocturaline, Ntina, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads are freakin’ 4

Its hard to believe we have been doing this for four years but it seems to be the case. Tonight we vist the four main Training Grounds spending 45 minutes in each.

Wolta’s hour:- We begin at Rocktropia. Ntina joins at 1938. 45 minutes into the session we complete the second kill and warp to Next Island Training Grounds, the session clock is paused while we warp. Wolta reports a gain of 4.65% in Captain skill.
Kills: 15 + 11 + 14

Cee’s hour:- First kill after 30 minutes then warp to Arkadia Training Grounds. The Horrors were sparsely distributed at Arkadia but it turned out well. Skills seemed OK and so did the loot.
Kills: 17 + 21

Nocturaline’s hour:- First kills in Arkadia Training Ground resulted in a 77 PED global from a Cosmic Horror Old after which we warp to Calypso Training Grounds. Nocturaline reports a lack of Horrors at the Calypso Training Grounds. Ntina leaves at 2149.
Kills: 13 + 22

We globaled so we move on (though it was not In Rocktropian space), Nocturaline takes us to Crystal Palace.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 113
Balance – Gain of 42 PED (probably negated by the three warps.
Return – 113%


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 191 (Meet the Sleepyheads)

Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1755 MA.
Present: Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads on Filby Broad!

During this session I took some snapshots of the crew in action













I arrive early which gives me a chance to check the auctions. Nocturaline is already waiting aboard ship and on my arrival tells me Wolta is on Calypso, while I get ammo and make sure I am wearing the correct equipment, Nocturaline moves the ship to the Space Station so we can summon Wolta when she logs on. With Wolta at the helm we head for the Training Grounds.

Wolta’s hour:- We engage the Cosmic Horrors at 1810. At 1819 like the true Sleepyhead that Nocturaline is she reports she is already asleep, I offer to swap hours but Nocturaline prefers to drink more coffee. Wolta reports a lack of Horrors, maybe they have gone to bed early tonight? Kahlan joins at 1905. Kills, 28 for a 5.

Cee’s hour:- Not a horror in sight, I head towards the centre of the zone. Ticonderoga spotted as hostile. Kills 33 for 2 x 5PED!  Not many Horrors and even less PED.

Nocturaline’s hour:-Nocturaline found the Horrors Wolta and had not, in the two visits to the turrets I killed 47 Horrors and both Nocturaline and I had to go and assist in Engineering part way through! Notable loots an 8, a 5 and a 63 PED from a global on a Cosmic Horror Mature. 3.27% on Captain and 15% left to next VSE level.

Result for the week was a loss of 81 PED, giving a return of 74%.

Space Skilling Saturday 187 (Shore Leave 2)

Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1758 MA.
Present:-  Kahlan, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads one HoF no waiting?

I am on Calypso and make my way to the ship at Crystal Palace via the Space Station. Wolta arrives at almost the same time and takes us to the training grounds.

Wolta’s hour:- We engage the Cosmic Horrors at 1806. Kills 21 for 0. Wolta relinquishes the seat bang on time, we both repair before I take the helm. Wolta reports a 2% gain in Captain and that Horrors were hard to find at the beginning.

Cee’s hour:-  Kills 29 for 15, 10 and 122 PED. Kahlan joins with about 5 minutes left. just before we get the global from the penultimate Horror maybe we should all her lucky Kahlan?

I take us to Crystal Palace before going planet side, later I return and upgrade a little more.

A profit of 74 PED and a return of 152%.
