Space Skilling Saturday 200 (We take a welcome break from Arkadia)

Start Location:- Arkadia Space Station.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present: Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:-  Sleepyheads the 200th snooze

For the 200th SSS so we go to face the Locusta, Wolta warps us away from Arkadia at 1907, the delay being caused by a Cosmic Horror that decided to make a nuisance of its self so I had to kill it, sadly no global so we will have to return to Arkadia after the Locusta, bugger! It seems Kahlan will not be joining us again, at least on a regular basis, there is a new recruit waiting in the wings though.

Wolta’s hour:- It was busy in Engineering, Wolta reports a 4.35% gain on captain skill. Kills 32. I found that I needed more ammo but the webshop wouldn’t let me log in!

Cee’s hour:- I had to TT the loot after the 3rd of 4 session in the turret as I had no money for ammo. During the 4th session we manage a global of 70 PED on a mature? Before each session in a turret I visited Engineering to assist with repairs. Kills 55.

Nocturaline’s hour:- Again it was busy in Engineering. Nocturaline reports a gain of 1.55% on captain skill. Kills 45. After Nocturaline warps us back to Arkadia where a hostile takes a shot at us, by the time I get to a gun he’s long gone, shame.

A loss of 194 PED (I think MA wanted me to lose 200PED to celebrate the 200th SSS), a return of 74%.

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 198 (At Arkadia IV, throwing this dog a bone!)

Start Location:- Arkadia Space Station.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present: Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:-  Sleepyheads Remember Guy Fawkes

As soon as I logged in BT shutdown my internet, waited a few minutes for it to come back then logged in again and headed into Space. I couldn’t find the ship, there was no marker for it on the map so I had to go to the Space Station and teleport.

Wolta takes us out and has the first hour:- Wolta reports that both Kronan and Varyag are here and tries to avoid them, we do not wish to be the filling in a Mothership sandwich. Kills 18 for nothing.

Cee’s hour:- Kahlan joins. The Cosmic Horrors were widely spaced, not much by way of skill gains, very little loot. Kills 36 for nothing.

Nocturaline’s hour:- Nocturaline reports there are not many Horrors. I experience lag at the guns and struggle to stave off falling asleep. Nocturaline spots a destroyed ship on the way back to the Space Station. Kills 38 for loots of 10, 12 and 20 PED, finally someone throws this dog a bone!

The lag when shooting is awful, I don’t know if it’s to do with a VU or just being in Arkadian space.

A loss of 88 PED and a return of 69%.

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%.
