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%.

Space Skilling Saturday 185 (The Medellin connection)

Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1801 MA.
Present:-  Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads Estrella Estereo 🙂

Plenty of time to prepare this week. Wolta takes us out, the trip seems to be taking a long time so I ask her to peddle faster, she doesn’t.

Wolta’s Hour:- We engage the Cosmic Horrors at 1814. Wolta reports a lack of Horrors, certainly it takes about 20 minutes before we are busy in Engineering. Kills 16 for a 7 PED loot, with 2 visits to the turrets the first of which was a bottom rear turret, the targeting is still off on these. Kahlan joins at 1903. Wolta leaves the helm with 5 minutes to spare.

Cee’s Hour:- Skill messages are somewhat sparse as are the Horrors, there are plenty of them just widely spaced. In 3 sessions I kill 41 Horrors with lots off 75 (Cosmic Horror Mature), 20 and 11 PED. During the last session I had to stand, the Horrors seemed to actively avoid the normal grouping behavior and the condition of the two repair points was often poorly balanced.

Nocturaline’s hour:- A report of not many mobs, it seems I must have got them all! Kills 31 for loots of 35, 13, 11 and 9 PED. A 2% gain on Captain is noted. Nocturaline takes us back to Crystal Palace and informs us that she and Phil will not be available for the next 2 session due to shore leave.

A profit of 47 PED and a return of 118%.

Space Skilling Saturday 183 (Cosmic Horrors hate to boogie)

Start Location:- Crystal Palace.
Time:- 1759 MA.
Present:-  Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads We hate to boogie

I arrive late but still earlier than the others who arrive just in time, this did give me time to finish my dinner but not to clean what we laughingly call the Galley. Fortunately we are in space and as everyone knows “In Space, no one can hear you clean!”, it was only a matter of time, I’m surprised it took this long.

Wolta takes us out. On route Nocturaline tells us that there are many complaints of poor loot, not encouraging but undaunted we continue.

Wolta’s hour:-Not a good result here at all with 22 kills the best loot from this was just 3 PED. Wolta reports a 2% gain in Captain skill.

Cee’s hour:- Kahlan joins us shortly after I start, there are a total of 37 Kills with a 22 PED loot. Better but by no means good. I do not report a gain in Captain skill, not because there wasn’t one (I assume) but because I don’t keep track of skills.

Nocturaline’s hour:- Varyag is spotted while I am AFK making much needed coffee (we are Sleepyheads you know). Kills 34 for loots including an 8 and a 23 PED which was the best of the evening. Nocturaline reports a 1.75% gain in Captain skill whilst returning us to Crystal Palace.

This weeks results are actually better than expected with a loss of 79 PED and a return of 71%.
