After alot of theorycrafting and practice for the NEOII the need for some peace of mind was big.
It’s been in my mind for a while now to get me a decent and versatile ship with a crew and fly the universe in solitude.
The goal is to be unbound to anything or anyone. Go wherever the stars take me.
Doing some exploration. Making a decent amount of ISK. Occasionally kill a unwarry capsuleer.
Finding the right ship for the job was easier then expected.
For this line of work there is only one class that is very suitable. The strategic cruisers.
I went for a tengu since it is the most versatile and tough then any other strategic cruiser.
The new structures that got invented will make the line of work I’m into much easier then before.
After getting all my skills up to a decent level and get my ship fitted up it was time to take it out for a spin.
I probed a wormhole and found 3 ships mining. I decided to take on the more expensive mackinaw.
I got it down before back-up arrived.
It netted me around 10mil isk in loot. Not bad for a first spin.
We’ll see how long it’ll take for me to pick up playing with others again.
In the mean time, try not to get killed by a cloaky tengu.
The results for the Stay Frosty FFA or out.
You can find them at the EVEOGANDA website here
Top killers is very much deserved for Julia Ayu.
I’m featured fifth in the category Top Kills + Assists.
That just counts me out of any prices. But hey, I’m glad to be up there that high!
Keep an eye out on the forums for another Stay Frosty FFA.
I decided to look into a new favorite ship.
The Incursus seemed like a solid ship so I started working my way into fitting one up.
Alot of theorycrafting later my incursus was born.
A afterburner close range brawler with a resistence mod and an ancillary armor repper.
It played well with the bonusses that came with the ship.
I decided last minute to switch a 2nd resistance mod for a Damage Control
Because I would feel more comfortable dipping into structure every once and a while.
Not much later this became the reason why this post came to live.
First there was a Navy hookbill that died in a ball of fire.
The hookbill lacked the dps to actually hurt me.
Once I was in range, the hookbill couldn’t get out of scram range and died pretty fast.
Next up was a horribly fit thorax that deserved to die
The guy didn’t even got me half shield.
Since I was in that FW plex I decided to stay there.
Not much later an incursus appeared on close scan.
I decided to stay and go for it.
Much did I know this was going to be the closest 1vs1
I would have been in to date.
Check out the video I’ve made.
In the beginning it looked like I would be in for an easy kill.
But then the dual reppers got to work and I noticed I was a bit behind.
I started the ancillary repper,and got back to full armor.
Lost a cycle there because I focussed too much on heat damage rather than looking at the repper.
A derp happend during the fight, Since the previous fights didn’t really
Hurt me much I did not now I had auto-reload on the ancillary repper.
So I lost the ability to use a few extra slivers of armor.
I had to overload my guns again and hope they didn’t burn out.
I was on the losers side for a long time. But in stucture I could make the difference
Heat and the decision to fit a Damage Control saved my ass in this fight.
Who said hull tanking is a bad thing?
A dual armor rep incursus is a tough nut to crack.
But my incursus is up to the task. I’m quite happy with it.
Gf’s were shared in local. Shared a convo with the guy and he said it was one of the closest fights he had aswell.
It’s a name I’ll probably remember for a long time.
I encountered the guy twice in the Stay Frosty FFA aswell.
This time I was in a cheap fitted merlin.
Starting now alot of my time will be invested in training for the NEOII.
I’m looking forward to this.
This image speaks a thousand words.
The FFA was a huge succes.
It started with a huge number in system to start with and increased even further while the event went on.
Stay frosty did an excellent job in providing everyone with ships and fittings. I helped delivering ships to players, and I can say it was busy but fun.
It turned out my breacher wasn’t all that good. So I decided to roll with the merlin that Stay Frosty provided to the players.
There were a few boosted gangs and pod-killers active but it was limited to only a select few.
I managed to appear on 115 killmails with 35 final blows according to eve-kill.
I have 20 lossmails. 2 of them being pod-kills.
The efficiency was 88%.
I can’t be more happy with this result.
Engaged in a 1 vs 1 with a guy I met at Fanfest last year.
Vid of the engagement
For everyone involved, keep an eye out on Eveoganda anytime soon for the awarded prices.
Edit: Here you can find the official killboard from the event. I think it’s still catching up with the API tho.
Currently I’m ranked 23th in the top killers list \o/
Today at 1600 eve-time will start the Stay Frosty FFA!
I decided to fit up some ships and went for the breacher.
Hope I’ll have enough of them

So we got some great news.
Stay Frosty has been selected for the NEOII.
Guess who’s one of the team members. Yes, yours truly.
The following weeks will be alot of practice. Trial and error. But it will be a great time.
I will keep you guys up to speed how things are going.
The list of teams that got selected for the New Eden Open II can be found Here:
I wish everyone the best of luck.
So it’s been 18 days since I joined Stay Frosty.
And a lot has happens since then:
The member count went up from 30 to 67 as of this writing.
The good thing is that these are all active players from different timezones.
This means that at all time there are usually around 8-10 active people online.
Alot of these new players that joined are also bloggers.
Stay Frosty has a few very good bloggers, inlcuding Rixx Javixx offcourse, Marc Scaurus, Roc Weiler and Lucas Padecain.
Rixx Javix at EVEOGANDA made a page were all stay frosty blogs are grouped, go check it out.

The corp has allready being active alot since it’s beginning only a month ago.
The killboard as of this writing gives us 600 kills vs 500 losses with an efficiency of approx 50%.
Not bad for a newbie corp that is located in a very busy and active lowsec pocket dominated by some of the best rated pvp corps in New Eden.
Stay Frosty Killboard
After spending 18 days in corp chat, doing the occasional fleet roam together with corpmates I can say that there are truly nice people in Stay Frosty.
The chat is family friendly as it should be, and everybody is helping others out getting settled in, moving stuff in, helping with shipfittings etc.
The fact that everyone in corp has acces to all corp aspects is another great thing.
There is no rivalry between different members, because everybody is the same on any level. this makes that a 3 month old first time pvp’er to a 4 year old pvp vet are bassicly treated the same way and accepted in the same way.
I think Stay Frosty has alot of potential to become a very decent pvp corp that can live by it’s reputation of being honourable pilots.
I’m looking forward to the first anniversary of this corp. just to see where we will be 11 months from now.
