Not quite making that goal

It looks like I am going to stall out and not quite make my 2b isk mark for my 3 month birthday. Technically, if I can do it on Wednesday it will still count but I'm not crossing my fingers. I spent most of the evening out in null having my battleships precarved for me to work on my sector status. The good news is that after about 6 hours of work, my sec status is up to a -2.98 from a -3.48.

The gains blow.

It is good money, the null ratting. However, I am currently about 90 mil short. I'm tempted to burn LP for cash thou so who knows what I will do when I get up tomorrow. I just spent about 30mil implanting my pewpew alt with some damage implants to help her poor, poor showing of abilities.

I do remember that I actually have some salvage to sell from doing the null sec ratting. I don't have as much as I'd like to have due to the fact that my cargo hold is only about 300m3 and 1/3 of that is normally filled with ammo. Its a few mill worth but not enough to bridge the gap I currently have.

Speaking of salvage and isk making, I caught myself getting my ass handed to me during a level 5 mission. My ass handed to me is defined as one npc targeting my poor Noctis. Thankfully, carrier reps kept me alive until I could warp out and come back in.

Risk vs reward. The reward is well worth it since I can often buy another noctis or two every haul.

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 that t…

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 of A…

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…
