Frigates down......

Well not in the sense you'd expect....

As of early yesterday my character Mollernak gained the ability to fly Amarr T2 frigates destroyers (having earlier gained the ability to use T2 lasers).

In itself this is no major achievement, however this is the fourth race I have now reached this achievement for. As such I have the ability to fly every T2 frigate and regular Interdictor in the game.

The funny thing is that I have never hopped into any Amarr ship, and so only know them as targets. To the point I didn't even know which laser type was long range, and which was short range; all I know is that they are armour tankers, use lasers, and need lots of cap.

So now begins the slow process of determining; which Amarr frigates deserve a place in my ship hangers, and what is the best way to fit them.

As always I plan to start with the interceptors, Malediction and Crusader; so if anyone has advice please feel free to share it with me.

Once I have finished small beam/pulse specialisation skills to level IV, I will begin the train to be able to use the T2 Amarr cruisers, with T2 lasers, so pilgrim/curse/zealot/etc here I come.

Love the smell of vodka burning in the morning.....

The Insmother war continues apace....

Constant battles rang between us and our allies, against the various forces that we face.

The fights have been good, and so far I'm finding myself on the positive side of the balance sheet; with more killed, than destroyed. So far losses include; a Taranis, a Rapier, a Hound, a Megathron, and only a single pod so far.

The Megathron was unfortunately to a friendly DD, but that is par for the course when operating with Titans, and I should have considered the possibility of desync, before hugging the pos shield edge so closely.

It has been a lot of fun, and there have been some fights truly worth the 'GF' in local that comes where earned from both sides.

Indeed, that during fights it's not uncommon to see people losing more than one ot two ships in under 5 minutes; because they come straight back in another ship when popped, is a sign of some great pvp, and determination of both parties.

For me however, this weekend is now over, my timezone returns me as one of the first to the day we all dread on weekends like we have been having - Monday.

Dire Lauthris's Day of Darkness II short is just pure fantastic genius....

Enough can't be said about this video (Eve online thread), and it is fully deserving of the praise, so I'm bumping it in case someone hasn't seen it yet, and no matter what make sure you download the full resolution version.

WTM's characters all walk over to the hanger and group hug Gormn's Chimera.
