The Phantasm is working out well, although the drops from the faction spawns I’ve managed to find have been universally poor. The hull however is definitely going to be a keeper.
I’ve finally got around to starting the process of offloading some of the spares generated from my hull consolidation efforts. I was running goods from my home station into the nearby trade hub in a T1 hauler, and frankly got lax. I followed a repetitive pattern and let the value of what I hauled in each run increase to the point where it exceeded 300M ISK. I landed on the station and had a longer pause than usual while my docking request was processed, which allowed a Tornado to lock me up.
I don’t know whether or not they would have rolled the dice on getting a profit out of the gank. The character I was using has a reasonable bounty on it, which might have skewed the equation against me. As it was the hauler probably docked before they had enough time to decide. I chastised myself for my lack of caution.
Out of the game I took an opportunity during the Boxing Day sales to replace the laptop I use as a backup to my desktop and while travelling. The new toy has a 15.6” screen with a 2880×1620 resolution. EVE looks nice on it, but I am going to have to play around with scaling and font sizes to make it more useable.
