I should know better by now

Log entry for the 28th of August 2016

Saturday After Space Skilling Saturday. I returned via teleporter to Rocktropia where I stashed the loot from SSS before joining the crowd taking on the Kongs. With Skill pill and Loot pill I joined in and managed to lose 443 PED, a return of just 38%, I should know better. I do enjoy this event but need to be more thoughtful of when to fight and when not to fight.

Total return for the week was 52%, being a loss of 476 PED, opps!

One item possibly worthy of note. Today is the 3rd anniversary of the commencement of this blog.

A hunch pays off.

Saturday. After Space Skilling Saturday, which had gone swimmingly well. I decided to visit Rocktropia and have a crack at the Kongs. I had seen a couple of UFOs drop during Space Skilling but no big HoF and I had an odd feeling about the event.

I joined about 2120 MA and using a 50% skill pill and a loot pill I had accidentally necked mistaking it for the skill pill. I did quite well, there were several globals with decent loots and I thought I was somewhere close to breaking even then this happened:-

2016-08-20 22:01:49 [Globals] [] Team “(Shared Loot)” killed a creature (Zombie Kong) with a value of 18859 PED! A record has been added to the Hall of Fame.

My share was 2109 PED, need to follow my feelings more often I think. I continued and got a few more decent loots, all the time it was becoming harder as more people dropped out. The penultimate mob was a Werewolf God which took about 10 of us ages to kill and did not give us much for our trouble. I was there over an hour, fully using the skill pill but not all of the 500 PED Universal Ammo I had allocated for the event.

Gain for the week was a total of 3664 PED, estimated return 886%, only estimated due to me using Weapon Cells during SSS and gaining a lot of them in loot.

Happy Birthday to me. Well kind of!

As you can tell I have not been doing anything other than Space Skilling Saturday for quite sometime now however this week, Thursday the 11th to be precise is the anniversary of my arrival on Calypso as a fresh faced colonist so I logged in for the traditional anniversary hunt.

Thursday, I was on Crystal Palace and there was no one to team with so I went solo against the Aurli, managed a couple of globals of 158 and 50 PED before I finished, oddly the A104 lasted the entire hunt, it normally only manages about 40 minutes but this time stretched to 60, maybe I was just slow. I lost only 25PED which is a as near to a birthday present as MA are going to give me.

After I tp’d to Calypso to help out Clyde, a friend who started the day after I did, he does not play much any more either.

Saturday, it was Space Skilling Saturday which went quite well. After I tried Aurli solo and naked, I managed 4 but it was touch and go at times with plenty of healing so I left it for another day. I would need a healer to make it practical I think.

Loss for the week was 55 PED and that gave me a return of 92%, if it was like that much of the time I would still be playing.
