For Crying Out Loud!

OK, who cursed me?

I had a terrible April in terms of getting fights and I thought things were turning around last night when I joined a fleet getting ready to fight some reds buzzing around H-W in Tribute. I got a combat clone up to Tribute so I could join sub-cap fleets with Kirith, but my new Abaddon battleship had not been moved up yet so I was in my Arazu. But the call went out for more DPS so I borrowed a pulse Apocalypse from Greyhound67 and got back in fleet.

When we got to the target system, the FC ordered us to align, mods hot, and then... Whoops, get in force field of the POS, something happened. We warped around a bit more, then went back to base and stood down.

That took 5 minutes to write but was acted out over an hour. I don't mind the wait to form up, I use it to chat and answer evemails and such, but I expect the earth shattering kaboom at the end of the wait. Where's my earth shattering kaboom?

Sigh. At least I didn't get the borrowed battleship blown up.

I'll talk about the Abaddon tomorrow.


  1. Well it wasn't me!

    I have to admit I don't miss the hour long formation of fleets, but the flying around for hours and nothing happening is pretty much a universal truth sadly. It happens.

    A curse is like what happened to me yesterday when I undocked in my Rifter with bad guys on the station. I could've gotten away easily except my computer decided to freeze at that moment. By the time I got it back up and running I was in my clone, minus some very expensive implants. Now that's a curse! lol

  2. THIS is why I'm taking (at least) the summer off... not enough bang for my buck.

  3. when this happens to us we just evict the folks that blueballed us. oh the joys of wh space.
