Leaving my first Corp

I've been playing for just under a month. My thirty day point is about to hit. I will be kicked out of Rookie Chat. I will miss Rookie Chat, it is a fascinating channel.

I've joined the regular Help Channel instead. It is a useful thing.

At this moment, I am leaving my Corp as well. Its early in the morning and my reasons for leaving are varied. I've learned a lot. I totally feel that people should join a corp quickly. Not something crazy but a group of players to get to know and learn.

I've met some wonderful people that way. My new life is going to be a bit different but fortunately not lonely. I'm going to make my own corp for a bit. It is a tax shelter really. If you stay in an NPC corp you lose around 11% of what you make off of missions and bounties. Instead, I will make my own corp and give myself 5% tax rate that I can access.

I hope to store it aside for the future.

I have plans for the future.

I am not a scammer or a thief so far in the game. I gave my corp back all the items I was using. I tossed some extra in for good measure. When my corp leader invited me, he gave me a Thorax that I named Sugar Cookie. I gave that back as well although it hurt a bit. It's odd that you can get so attached so quickly to something that isn't alive much less real.

I have a new home system that is not so far from where my corp was. I feel odd stepping on their toes so I won't do it. I loaded up my Iteron III and hauled my shit over.

Many Gallente ships look like penises. It is supposed to be organic. I guess a phallus is.

I then did a dozen trips back and forth to move all of my regular use ships. Some I don't use, like one of the ships I first started mining in. Still, I am attached to that ship. So I keep it around. It did a good job for me and helped me make my first 10mil before I finished the Rookie missions and went off to explore space.

I feel like a bit of a bitch, leaving. You do develop ties and loyalty issues very quickly. Hopefully we can still be friends. It makes it sound like a bad breakup when I say it that way.

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday  so yay for unallocated skill points. Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked. In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end

CSM9 - Day 140

The week has been the Summer Summit for CSM9. That did not mean that the world stopped for us. Things in Eve moved forward because we have the Oceanas release coming on the 22nd. CCP Fozzie has released a small interceptor tweak . Interdictors are also being retouched for fine detailing. The thread about it is up. This is not a rebalance where the ships gain complete new roles and identities. This is focused on fine tuning. I have spoken up about the fact that the situation where Titans were being bumped out of POS shields was not acceptable to me. I’ve voiced my disagreement as have other players. CCP Fozzie has posted changes to cyno usage outside of POS force fields . I am not fully happy with this change. I am happy that it will stop the Titan bumping issue. I am not happy with not being able to light cynos on shields. I feel that it will negatively affect tackling ships hugging force fields and I have expressed that. The topic came up in one of our Summit Meetings with CCP Fo
