Rakapas… Shit, I’m still only in Rakapas. Every time I think I’m gonna wake up back in the Delve. I’m here a four days now… waiting for a move op… getting softer. Every minute I stay in this station, I get weaker, and every minute hostiles camp the route, they gets stronger. Each time I look around the hangar walls move in a little tighter.
-Delve-pocalypse Now 2016 Move Log, Day 4 Entry
I had hopes last night of getting closer to Sakht, our destination. However, the capital move ops that came up were all departing from destinations two or three jumps down the line. My Archon stayed in place for another night.
It did seem for a bit that I might get another ship down to Delve. There was a call for a subcap move op. I figured I could clone jump back to Saranen, join that, and at least get a doctrine combat ship down to our staging.
However, that move op was also only for ships that had made it to the incursion that was blocking our way yesterday.
So, the tally at the end of day 4 was four ships down in our staging, two frigates and two stealth bombers that somebody else put in their carrier because they had extra space… so some people are making it down to Delve. Everything else I want to move is still in Lonetrek or Black Rise… about where we started.
I am not doing well at the move op thing. Apparently I should at least be in Aulbres by now. Every time I log into Rakapas though, there are a bunch of blues sitting in the station with me, so I suppose I am not alone.
It isn’t that I cannot attempt the move on my own. I am trying to follow the standing orders which say, in large, purple, Comic Sans letters, “DO NOT MOVE YOURSELVES” right there at the top of the post. But I am starting to think I had better move my carrier a jump or three ahead if I want to make any ops in the near future.
That means getting my alt out onto the heavily camped route south to light a cyno for a jump, something that will likely require repeated attempts, as cyno ships are easy to pop and I expect I will lose at least one on every jump. I just hope one doesn’t get popped mid-jump, as then my carrier will end up at the sun, an easy target.
As for the subcaps still up in Saranen, I will have to wait for a move op or just strip them and ship them to Jita. I doubt I am going to get a T2 logistics cruiser all the way down to Delve alone without getting popped.
Another day has dawned, we shall see what it brings.
