Isk and the Future

Last night I also managed to tip 3bil isk. Losing my Noctis and 2 ruptures over the weekend were a minor setback I wasn't interested in having. However, shit happens and you make more isk and buy more ships.

However, after the weekend of productive roaming and finally getting some final blows on things I realized that I was short term goalless. I putter around in my Rupture but I don't do a lot on field outside of tackle. Tackling ships is super important but I'd like to feel like I was wanted on the field to fuck shit up sometimes as well.

Then I remind myself that my PvP toon just turned 3 months old. However, I have worked quite hard to craft her into a solid, useful toon with a good base skill set. Lamenting my woes to my CEO he gave me a hurricane fit and told me to get into that ship now, and then max skill everything about it. Once I did that, he said I was set to learn whatever the hell else I wanted to learn and figure out.

Hurricane now and I can start fucking some shit up.

I will skill into it in a month. The longest part of that is getting my gun specialization up. However, its nice, I feel good. Chella is headed to logi and she is almost done cruiser 5, finally. However, like anything, there are humps. My wishes are moving a bit faster then my abilities and pulling them back into something reasonable takes a bit of energy sometimes.

However, I do have a Quafe t-shirt on my PvP toon. Someone got her one and decided that she'd look sexy with it on.

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

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…
