My client is updating as I type, which at my connection speeds means I may be able to play again sometime in 2017. Or maybe after dinner.
In the mean time I wanted to announce some sad news: I lost Xevozz, the Heretic last night. This ship was previously featured as a crazy fit experiment back in June. I was doing some Cosmic Anomaly sites trying to get an escalation to pop.
Yes, a little bit of exploration for the lvl4 grinder; figured I'd try some out. The Heretic seemed like a fun way to do them - nimble, decent dps, and a ship that I don't fly as often as I'd like. I upgraded the rigs and ammo to tech2 but otherwise left the fit from June intact.
And yes, kind of a dumb fit; using a hull intended for something else entirely in a mildly inappropriate way. That was kind of the point. The loss itself wasn't really anything to be proud about. I looked away at the wrong moment and pow, the Angels had their way with them. I grabbed the Sacrilege, murdered the pocket and looted my wreck at least.
So, a moment of silence, please. This was a good ship that died doing what it loved best.
The death isn't the fault of the ship. He deserved a better pilot.
(Mental note: do a blog post about naming conventions for ships).
