Action Report 10: Stacey’s friendly PVE wormhole

Posted: December 7, 2014 in Action Reports

I didn’t have the time to write down the adventures the girls had and left you guys and girls in the dark a bit. My apologies for that, but I have two jobs now and a study in real life and as you guys know the real life world always goes before the EVE Online world. A lot has happened though, including a bit of drama with my sister and Disavowed.

The Viperfleet CEO didn’t trust us after reading our little adventure with the Nyan Cat Pirates and Damned Nation, who is pretty active in 0.0 space at the moment and losing ships again like they did in the early days. So sis decided to cut the ropes with Disavowed. after a silly threat by some of its members who had told her they would destroy her ships if she wasn’t on teamspeak. Sis playing from her computer had issues with her soundcard and was enraged at the Disavowed. guys and left to Foolish Intentions to join some of her old corpmates. In the end it was all a misunderstanding, but the damage was already done.

The Foolish Intentions guys had set up a tower in a lovely C3 wormhole called J155419 and several small kills were made. But after awhile things got boring and everyone was craving for some more excitement. Stacey and Gabryella being inseparable brought all their stuff back to highsec to look for a specific wormhole. Some of the Foolish Intentions members wanted a highsec static. Others wanted one with a lowsec or a 0.0 static and after some debating we finally figured out which type of wormhole we wanted. It had to be a C2 wormhole with a high security static and a C3 static and it also needed basic planetary interaction for some extra income.

After searching and searching for the right wormhole and one that wasn’t habited or defended, I gave up. The wormholes that we wanted were very hard to find. I calculated what the chances would be and it meant I had to probe down 100 wormholes a day in the same region for almost six months! Luckily I was still a member of Disavowed. and they have this neat program called Vippy, which is like Siggy but way more advanced, and there was this shiny wormhole J222822, which had all the requirements we wanted.

It didn’t take long for me to check it out and to my surprise it only had one active medium Caldari tower that was badly defended and owned by some hardcore miners. The player owned customs offices were owned by the Merchants Trade Consortium which were previous members of Disavowed. This was great!

Our large Amarr tower was set up and was called I love you! Having experience with control towers Stacey got the honors of placing and anchoring the modules, which was a tedious job, because every module required a two minute timer to anchor. Eventually she got it done though and our tower became amazing.

The old habitants, which were members of a small corp called KGI, weren’t too happy about us invading their wormhole and we got several incoming messages with a lot of questions and all in very crappy English. Apparently these capsuleers had stayed in this wormhole too long and had lost their speech ability. We replied with: We are ufool, we are pvp. A few days later they had stripped all the modules of their tower and moved their ships to the safety of empire space. We had even given them an escort by letting their hauler go on the wormhole entrance.

J222822 was ours, but we still had bugs in here called sleepers. They were a whole different ballgame for the girls. These drones were nothing like the rogue drones in highsec or 0.0 space. These drones were nasty. However, Stacey was mastering her skills for specialized ships, which originated from the wormholes themselves, the strategic cruisers. She got herself a Legion and stole a fit from one of the many discussion forums about handling the nasty sleeper drones while Gabryella had trained for a Noctis salvage ship to clean up the mess Stacey would make.

Scorch Crystal ammunition for long range shooting and Imperial Navy Multifrequency for short range shooting in the cargo hold. Some nanite paste in case you had to overheat the repairers and of course tracking scripts. A mobile depot for refitting or a mobile tracking unit is optional.

The sleepers were fearless and the first few times Stacey had to warp off not to get butchered by the many launchers and guns aimed at her. Also the e-war used by the sleepers was not to be messed with. Some had stasis webifiers, others had warp scramblers, remote repair modules or even neutralizers. The worst types could call in more sleeper drones with more guns and launchers, but after a few tries Stacey found out who those were and discovered that the Legion was able to kill almost any of the waves without taking a scratch as long as she focussed on the right sleeper types.

It all paid off. Sleepers got killed, loots were taken, wrecks got salvaged and data and relic sites hacked. Not a single sleeper was safe for little Stacey anymore and don’t forget the gas sites. She was able to kill all the sleepers in there too and many of the precious gas clouds got mined to oblivion. The loot bay got full. However, something was bothering us and it involved the many structures of the previous owners and the player owned customs offices. They cluttered our scanner and we wanted them gone. But it would take ages to do so, ages we didn’t have.

Suddenly Rouge Angel got a great idea. We are going to build ourselves a large dreadnought, the Moros. With her huge blasters and siege module it should be extremely easy to kill all the player owned towers and defend our tower when we are being invaded by an alliance with a large fleet. We all cheered.

Building a dreadnought was no easy task though. The modules and capital parts had to be bought at several trading posts and transported into the wormhole with transport ships like the Impel or Bustard. These ships have a 50.000 m3 fleet bay, which is huge, but could carry only 6 capital parts during one trip and we needed 250 parts to start building the ship.

After a lot of tedious hauling we had set up the capital assembly array and after exactly two weeks a huge Moros dreadnought showed her face and gently hovered within the force field of our tower looking across J222822. Bottles of spiced wine were opened, the empress was born and ready to role and rule.

And so she did. Her guns smashed trough the player owned towers and we unanchored and confiscated all their modules. It saved us a lot of time and fetched us a nice 150 milion isk, which wasn’t bad at all for a tower shoot.

But as usual the fun was short and we got bored again. Sis and I were very busy in the real world and we had hardly any time to run the sleeper sites or run the little relic and data sites left by pirates, which are now available in wormholes too. And we were not the only ones. Disavowed. was having issues again and quite some VFI members got fed up with those and went to do other stuff. I invited them to join us in the C2 and use our tower as a staging point to make themselves some quick isk while we were gone.

It was great. After a few weeks the tower was bustling with activity and capsuleers and their ships were warping back and forth to do what they wanted to do. But there was one thing we couldn’t do and that was planetary interaction. After reinforcing some of the player owned customs offices, Merchants Trade Consortium had set their timers to mid night EVE time, which is also mid night in the real world for us. After a few tries we had the time to actually try and kill one of them, but the Merchants had formed up a small fleet to counter us and we were forced to let the customs office regain shield again.

It didn’t take long for us to receive a message with a build in threat. In short: we had been set ‘kill on sight’ and The Last Chancers, the alliance MTC is in, would come and try to kill our tower and our dreadnought. We had to pay a lot of money for the customs offices and even more if we wanted to be left alone. Disavowed. had solved their issues and I informed them about the situation. They were all willing to defend the tower if they had to, so we responded properly by killing the first office during the weekend and setting up our own.

Today the big EVE spy network contacted us and informed us that The Last Chancers are looking for a Moros dreadnought and wanted to show up with a large fleet to clear out a little C2 called J222822. They sadly decided not to, apparently it would be overkill.

Sad though. Not only the Disavowed. alliance is ready to show up, but one of the scariest highsec mercenary alliances EVE Online has to offer wants in on the action too and all for free of course. I also wonder how many of the guys that still have a little cat or fist tattooed on their butts and like us and made a lot of friends along the way are willing to show up as well. Interesting. So yes, I dare you TLC, bring it!
