I have to say that this weekend's coverage of AT X was pretty interesting when the stream worked. Apparently the new studio, while looking good, had some wiring issues and it lost access to the internet during one of the matches. I have two sentimental favorites I root for, Red vs. Blue and Capital Punishment.. Red vs. Blue, who should fly under the name "Purple", I think is a sentimental choice for a lot of players. Capital Punishment. is a small pirate corp practicing their trade in Minmatar low sec and as a Minmatar pilot myself I have to root for the home team.
Both Red vs. Blue and Capital Punishment need victories to advance to the knockout stage. RvB, one of the few 2-0 teams to not clinch a spot in the finals, can ensure a spot with a victory over Pandemic Legion. I'm not sure what the scenario is if RvB loses. Capital Punishment. is in a worse spot. They need to win plus Verge of Collapse has to lose. I don't know the scenario for Capital Punishment. advancing if Verge of Collapse wins, but I think it involves Verge of Collapse not getting full points in their match.
While watching the tournament I managed to finish my latest faction grind so I now have stations in my low sec area where I have perfect refining. That isn't as important as it was before the changes that eliminated drops of meta 0 loot from rats and scrap metal taking up hardly any space. But having the capability is handy if I ever try my hand at low sec mining. I hear CCP might buff mining ships one day.
Finally I broke my two-year moratorium and finally flew an armed ship into low sec. I'm still wary of the pros coming in and swatting me around so I fitted up a Hound and went ratting.

I think my tactics not only work against the rats but take into account the realities of low sec. If someone shows up on grid, I can instantly warp away and cloak up. A stealth bomber is pretty squishy. However, I think I have a fit that will allow me to take some potshots at people who do land on grid if the situation is favorable. While I'm not looking for kill mails, I might get one if I run into someone even less experienced than I am.
So no thought provoking post today. I had too much fun playing Eve.
