Space Skilling Saturday 213 (At Arkadia I)

Start Location:- Arkadia Space Station.
Time:- 1857 MA.
Present: Nocturaline, Ntina, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads – Evening Beautiful

Arriving in time I make the team, get aboard and summon Wolta, we chat until Nocturaline and Phil arrive.

Wolta takes us to the training grounds and we encounter the Horrors at 1901.

Wolta’s hour:- Wolta reports bad skill gain with only a 2.03% gain in Captain skill.
Kills: 11 + 14

Cee’s hour:- Ntina joins at 2015. Kronan spotted. First session at guns delayed by a Welding Wire trade between crew members and then interrupted by Nocturaline’s RK failing. Skills seemed low, loot seemed low, mob density was quite nice.
Kills: 27 + 17

Nocturaline’s hour:- Kronan spotted. During the second session at the guns Nocturaline had to leave the pilot seat to assist in Engineering. Nocturaline reports good mob density and skill gains with a 1.49% gain in Captain skill.
Kills: 24 + 27

Nocturaline returns us to Arkadia Space Station. During the 3 hours it tried to global twice.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 110
Balance – Loss of 20 PED
Return – 94%

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 99 (plus an initial warp)

Location:- Arkadian Space
Time:- 1900 MA .
Present:- Kahlan, Nocturaline, Phil, Scarlott, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads No pyjamas party

We being at Calypso Space Station, about 1850, where I summon Nocturaline and Wolta, Wolta upgrades the SI further (Thank you Wolta) while I warp to Arkadia Space Station.  The warp is delayed while Micjack shoots at us for a while, he really is a very pleasant fellow, it does not take too long for him to realise he is onto a loser and turns away. I did hail him good evening but there was no reply, maybe he was ignoring the local channel.

Once docked at Arkadia Space Station Wolta takes the helm and I summon Scarlott, we leave as soon as she is aboard and head to the training grounds.

As is now usual the first hour is Wolta’s and I start the clock once damage is taken. Wolta reports seeing Kronan as do I during my first visit to a turret when I see the ship in my sights. After I return to Engineering, Wolta reports Kronan hails us with a “hello” which Wolta returns. Shortly after my second visit to the guns at about 1940 Kahlan joins us and is invited to the team. Loot was poor throughout.

I took the the second hour, the density of the Horrors was quite good considering both Varyag and Kronan were skilling in the vicinity, I spotted them both at various times during my session. The ship was brought to the point of smoking several times but I did not need to exit the seat, the second herd I gathered did not want to form into a ball and killing them all took 3 visits to the guns, I counted 20 but it’s difficult to be sure. Both Nocturaline and Phil crashed, Phil more than once.

Nocturaline was up next and found few Horrors initially but that soon changed. I had a lot to kill on my visits to the guns and Engineering was kept busy. The loot was consistently poor unfortunately.

A loss of 153 PED was recorded which was a return of just 45%, not a good week for Space loot it seems.

Space Skilling Saturday 97 (more nova please)

Location:- Arkadian Space
Time:- 1910 MA .
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Scarlott, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads we want more nova

We started a little late, partly because I was quite disorganised having only just finished a Magurg Breeder hunt and was chatting too, partly because Nocturaline was late.

Wolta took us out from the station and had the first hour at the helm. We seldom needed to use the RK-20, I think there were a lack of Cosmic Horrors. Wolta thinks Kronan fired on us just once.

I took the middle hour, there was just one Horror available to me, I headed toward the centre and slowly picked up a few but they were very sparse tonight which made this quite a frustrating exercise we do this to skill and it is unnecessarily difficult. Oh well.

The last hour belonged to Nocturaline who very quickly reported a lack of Horrors. She did find considerably more than I did however and reported a good skill gain in Captain.

Loot was consistently poor with a return of 61% which was a loss of 87 PED. I think I got less than 30 Nova.

Kahlan, Phil and Wolta logged aboard ship, Nocturaline returned to the Arkadian surface in her Equus whilst Scarlott and Myself went in my quad.
