Space Skilling Saturday 65 (Say it with a global)

Location:- Calypso Space.
Time:- 1755 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Nocturaline, Phil, Yoghurt and Myself.
Team name:- Congrats to JBK and ABK (nee S)

I moved the ship from Crystal Palace to Calypso Space Station prior to starting so as to be ready to summon Nocturaline before picking Wolta up whilst passing Crystal Palace on the way to the training grounds. As a plan it worked well, always a worrying sign.

We arrived at the training ground about 1905 and initially I had some problems finding Cosmic Horrors, they were quite thinly spread but that changed and I found the density to be about right, skill gains seemed reasonable too. I made three trips to different Top Front Side turrets with very little success. Yoghurt joined us at about 1945 after travelling from Calypso in his Quad.

Nocturaline took the second shift. During her stint I visited the Bottom Rear Left, Top Rear and Top Front Left turrets (the last one twice), the loot was about the same with the exception of an 8 PED loot, things were looking bad. Then during the very last visit and on the penultimate kill we managed to say it with a global. During this time Wolta had an issue with lag and was forced to relog, which resolved the issue. I asked Nocturaline to report on her session, skills a bit low, mob density average, there were more in another area but Starfinder III was there so we could not occupy it with out appearing threatening, Nocturaline was also distracted by Space Chat where an idiot who shall remain nameless was preaching.

Wolta was up next, starting a few minutes late. During her session I visited the Bottom Rear Right, Yoghurt reached lvl 5 VSE, I visited the Top Front and got a brief glimpse of Starfinder III but little else, later it was Top Front Right at which point Wolta had to hand over to Nocturaline due to lag again while dispatching the Horrors. I asked Wolta to report but the issue with lag made it impossible so we called it a night.

Nocturaline handed over to Yoghurt for the journey back to Crystal Palace and sat in a turret to provide a little crew training.

Not a good return tonight but at least we got the fanfare.

Space Skilling Saturday 63 (A present for pilots)

Location:- Rocktropian Space.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Nocturaline, Phil, Yoghurt and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads very, very Sleepyhea…

We were all ready early, maybe we are practising for next week, with the clocks going forward in a few hours time we will need all the practice we can get. I had offered Yoghurt a turn at the helm and he had accepted so we planned for 45 minute sessions with Nocturaline taking the second stint so that she could provide a little training for Yoghurt. I also gave the pilots a present, this week I would only be using the front gun.

Wolta took the first 45 minutes, it took a little while to build up a stack, it seems things have changed in the Rocktropia training grounds and the Cosmic Horrors are not so plentiful as they were a few weeks ago. My first session at the guns was quite good with a little over 50 PED of loot, my second was not so good, after which Wolta surrendered the helm to Nocturaline as planned. At this point Yoghurt announces he will not be piloting today as he wants to focus on maxing the RK-5. We decided to continue with Nocturaline at the helm and let Wolta have her 15 minutes make up time after.

Nocturaline reported a lack of Horrors and had to move location to pick some up. Plenty of damage was being taken though so there was good repair skills to be gained. I had 3 sessions at the guns, the 1st was quite poor, the 2nd included a single loot of about 18 PED and the 3rd 2 loots around the 20 PED mark.

After an hour Nocturaline offered Wolta the seat for her make up time but Wolta declined so we split the difference and after about 7 minutes I took the helm.

Once I had killed off the group Nocturaline had collected there were no more Horrors and I had to travel a surprisingly long way to find just one, there is definitely a theme here. After moving quite a long way I found a sparsely populated area and roamed there collecting a stack. I used the upper side guns as they are closer to the pilot seat and on my 3rd visit managed a couple of loots around the 10 PED mark. After my time I headed back to Rocktropia Space Station stopping to kill off 3 more on the way.

Skills were not too bad considering the low number of Horrors, maybe once they stop making little updates each week it will improve.

Space Skilling Saturday 62 (less Horrors and less Skills)

Location:- Rocktropian Space.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Nocturaline, Phil, Yoghurt and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads incentive required

Wolta had some issues leaving the Calypso system but made it just in time. I took the first shift and headed into the training zone, I began to wonder where the Horrors had got to as they were very sparse although things did improve and I managed to collect quite a large group, as is normal I kept them doing damage for sometime after they stopped giving skills in order to make sure Engineering were kept busy. I had a couple of sessions in the turrets solo and then a small session when I handed over to Wolta.

Wolta had the second session and seemed to be doing a better job of finding horrors than I did, I visited the turrets twice Front Top and Bottom Rear Right where I managed to loot a Generic Fuse, an item that seems to be becoming quite rare judging by the approx 1000% MU. After the second session Wolta could not find any more Horrors and then realised she had gone very z+ she began to dive but her time was up.

Nocturaline took the last shift and after continuing the dive found more Horrors, with 3 visits to the turrets (Top Rear, Bottom Rear Left and Top Front Right)  this was my busiest session and at one point I managed a 20 PED loot. Nocturaline also reported a downturn in the number of mobs although she did not notice a decrease in skills.

Nocturaline brought along a Soc. mate, Yoghurt who seemed pleased to be there and was focusing on repair skilling, I will offer him a stint at the helm next week if he returns.
