A King Kong a lula

Log entry for the 9th of October 2016

Saturday. After a decent Space Skilling Saturday during which I had seen no big loots from Kongs I decided try my luck, There was a decent hit while I was sorting storage but I continued anyway, I was there a little over an hour and used a 50% Skill pill, did quite well. After I had sorted my storage I returned to sell a plantation of bananas to Ravenjade and was tempted to try my luck again with my Archon’s sword, this resulted in a small loss.

Return for the week was 273 PED with a return of 129%, I must learn to pick my fights.

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.

Log entry for the 21st of August 2016

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.

Marvellously Merry Mayhem mostly, mmmm

Log entry for the 3rd of January 2016

Monday, I realise I’ll not be able to spend enough hours in Merry Mayhem to qualify for the competition but I do want to reach the 2k total points so as to get back 200 PED of Universal Ammo, thinking back this was probably a false economy. I also decided to use my last 5 hour 100% skill pill from the Gold Rush event on Arkadia, yes I had reached my goal of level 60 Laser Pistoleer (hit) and in the process become Marvellous but what’s the point of carrying the pill around and risking losing it to a pirate between planets. Once I have gained the skill it cannot be taken from me, at least not yet. I popped the pill and had a couple of one hour sessions in the instance, the first hour was against Araneatrox the second against Kerberos. The result was a loss of nearly 150 PED (already spent 3/4 of the 200 PED reward right there) but there were three small globals, my points reached 1585, cumulative hours reached 12 and I got to 10% of the way to level 61, “marvellous” as Mr. Brittas used to say!

Tuesday, I spend another full hour with the Kerberos in Merry Mayhem Solo 3 which gives me a couple of globals and an 8 PED profit. Later I return for another hour (the first of a 2 part hunt) it gives just one small global.

Wednesday, part 2 of the hunt from last night, no globals, Laser Pistoleer (hit) reaches 18% to the next level and my MM points total increases to 1750, the combined loss for the two hunts is 224 PED, oops there goes the 2k point bonus. I now have 15 cumulative hours and a very sore right hand, I will have to rest tomorrow.

Friday, it’s 2016 so I wish a very happy new year to anyone who reads this and make a blogging resolution but see the end for that, don’t be filled with anticipation over it though it really isn’t that exciting.
I auction for a buy out price quite a lot of Animal eye oil, funds are low and I need Ammo, Christmas is always an expensive time of year and while I could afford it I decide I do not want to deposit until it is necessary.
Hour 16 against the Kerberos solo 3 results in one small global, a loss of 69 PED and a distinct lack of notes, there is a chance that I was hungover!

Saturday, hour 17 and a 32 PEC profit! I’m quite excited and start to work out what I could spend it on. There are a couple of globals, MM points reach 1828 and Laser Pistoleer (hit) climbs to 21% of a level.
Later there is Space Skilling Saturday which includes a run in with that nice fellow micjack.

Sunday, hours 18 and 19 in Merry Mayhem solo 3, both are against the Kerberos. The first hour is quite poor with one small global and a loss of 160 PED. During the second hour I reach the 2k MM points but continue to the end, I also get a decent global, Laser Pistoleer (hit) approaches 25% of the level and I get my 200 PED of Universal Ammo, unfortunately I use some of it instead of my purchased Ammo. I made a profit of 229 PED (including the 200 in Universal Ammo), am 89 points over the 2k and with only 19 hours am tempted to do one more to get it to 20, which is half of the requirement for entry to the competition.

The return this week was 91% which resulted in a loss of 321 PED, not bad really.

New year’s blogging resolution is to include more background information such as who I have been chatting with although about what may not be disclosed depending upon the content. I have noticed the blog has become very results focused and while I wish to include results I do not want them to be the total content.
