Trick and Treat!

Yes, I know Halloween has been and gone; the title still fits.

So I log into EVE after spending all night agonizing over what ship to fly on my PvP pilot and finally deciding that yes, a battleship might work for me.  I hop onto my high security alt and start heading for Jita from Tama.

“GANKIS KHAN,” the popup trumpets at me.  “YOU HAVE ENTERED CALDARI SPACE WHERE…”

Gankis Khan?  I’m not Gankis Khan.  I’m…oh.  Oh, shit.

That’s right.  Somehow, although Gank flies an inty and Anyka is in a Crane, I thought I was Anyka Celeste.  And Gank is obviously not welcome in Nourvukaiken.  But praise Jesus! I’m in an interceptor and can book it for the gate and the safety of 0.3 space.  So I do.  And I totally make it with three quarters of my structure and start spamming that jump button.  Session change in progress.  Well, that’s lovely!  Lovely right up to the point Concord blows my shit up and someone loots my 9 million ISK microwarp drive.

*sob*

However.  Here is the treaty bit: the guy (and a SniggWaffe guy at that!) convos me and offers my expensive Coreli C-Type module back!  My jaw was honestly on my breastbone.  I did a happy dance of joy and edited my angry petition to explain that now I was only angry about the ship loss.

Thanks, steave435 .  You made my week!

    The “session change in progress” sounds like you didn’t wait long enough after jumping in before burning back to the gate. I think its like 20 seconds?

    Well it’s good that you didn’t lose everything. Session change is just the system telling you to wait your turn. there’s a queue for system jumps and if you ask to be queued more than once you get that message.
