Loki, the mischievous god

Well, I don’t know about you, but I am tired of the drama on the EVE forums. CCP has really created a PR disaster for itself and they will have a lot of work to do to regain the trust of the community. For now, I will continue to play and write, but unless something world shattering comes out of all of this drama, I think I am done from a commentary perspective.

So,onto more interesting things. Recently I have engaged in a certain amount of personal fail, strategic cruisers. I took some of my hard earned isk, bought the skill books, hulls, subsystems and modules to they out fits for a Proteus and a Loki.

How did it go? Well, I lost the Proteus to my stupidity and impulsiveness in engaging a neutral raven on a gate. Lost the Loki to an obvious bait trap in a top belt of a low sec system. I was more impressed with the Loki in how well it lasted before succumbing to it’s doom. All I will say is it did die “because of Falcon”. 😛

So, what did I learn? Well, I learned that it’s a good thing I bought two of everything to replace any losses. I also learned that for how I want to be able to fly the ship, the Loki fits me better. After a lot of experimentation and consulting some very sharp alliance mates, I have the fit that I want to use.

Yes, it’s a very expensive vagabond and being a T3 ship with covert ops cloak ability, it is gimped for dps, but the tank more than makes up for it.

Will this become my main ship that I fly? No, it won’t be. It will be that shiny expensive ship that I will take out every now and again. Strategic cruisers, for this solo roamed, are just too expensive and not really worth the money in the long run, at least as I see it.

What do you think? Do you think I should look at other options, perhaps the Tengu or the Legion? What changes would you do to the fit I am using?
