I am a foolish pirate. It's become more and more apparent to me as I've played Eve and rather than actually trying to rectify the issue I merely ignore it. Thus I get losses such as this and more painfully this. When I shouldn't do something, I just think of what the best but almost impossible situation is and get it in my head it will work. Obviously it never does.
More fool me.
As some of you might know I make all my isk from piracy and I don't have an alt to support me in any tangible or worthwhile way. My 100,000sp hauler barely qualifies to actually carry anything of value and other than that it's Kishin on his lonesome. Why, then, don't I wise up? Answers on a postcard please.
The Daredevil is a wonderful ship by the way for those that contemplate flying it. I know had I not attacked those Dramiels that I would be flying it quite regularly and hopefully racking up some great kills. I would go into detail about what really draws me to the ship but I didn't get quite enough flight time to figure it out. Eve is a thinkers game and I'm beginning to realize that if I continue in my sloppy ways I'll be left in the dirt whilst others soar above me. This echoes a new chapter for me as a pilot and I plan to buck up and fly smart from now on, these kinds of losses have really punched me in the face. Do any of you find you harbour any particularly bad habits? If so, what and how do you combat them when out flying?
Hopefully something good will come of this, at least before any more bad stuff! I'm going to take a deep breath, relax and begin sorting myself out. Thus ends the emotionally fueled rant of a butthurt pirate!
