Liquid vs Nonliquid Value

I tend to gauge my value on my isk in my main toons wallet. My alt has a few hundred mil in her wallet, but I leave that for her to do things like buy her own ammo.

I've been hovering around 2.5 bil for a few weeks now. Up and down and around it. After refitting my Myrm I plunged down to about 4.873 which really upset me. I dragged it back to 2.497 for a while and then sat there. Then I started doing missions in an effort to finally crack down and get my standing with Republic Fleet over a 7.

Its been misery. The value for the time is pathetic. I make around 1mil a mission in the end. Sometimes less, now and then more, but rarely. I've completed three storyline missions in that time. That's a lot of freaking missions I've done since it is 16 missions for each storyline. It makes me want to vomit in a corner.

Anyway, it leaves me feeling relitlvey valueless and useless and bad at Eve. I deffenetly consider my ability to have to do with how much isk I can bring in on my own. Due to my soemwhat sideways career path in game, i've not developed my pewpew skills beyond what they were back in december. My defensive abilities are better and thats the only reason that I can hang around long enough to finish the missions.

Although that isn't saying much. One mission yesterday left me like this, twice.

To save on repair costs I've taken to carrying around armor repairers, docking, switching fittings, undocking, repairing myself, redocking, switching back, and going back to the mission. If I didn't, the cost to repair myself would outweighs all my mission rewards each day. I'm already irritated at how much ammo I go through considering I miss 80% of the time.

Anyway, as always, I hate security missions and they leave me feeling inadequate and shitty at eve. Same thing I go on about every time. However, in an attempt to rebalance my opinion of myself in game, I tried to look at the bigger picture.

In the past two months I've been working to fit into ships that have long train times on them. My Viator was 16 days at level 5 + 4 days to level 4 = 20 days to get in. I am currently halfway through cruiser V to get into my Oneiros. I have 10 days left on that 20 day skill. I then have 2 weeks to finish two other skills to V before I can sit in the Oneiros. It will then be about 25 days to get Logistics to V. I plan to stop at Logi 4 for a few weeks and top off my cap skills before topping up to Logistics V. However, at 4 I should be a somewhat solid Logistics ship.

I then plan to freeze everything and finish poor Chella's core skills to 5's and sit her a bit more solidly into things.

So, making isk on my own will not be easy. Sometimes I do courier contracts if a lucrative one pops up. However, I had to look at the value of my assets.

My Oni is a 100mil isk ship.
My Viator is a 100mil isk ship.
My 3 Myrms averge 45mil each.

I have assorted other stuff that's not interesting.

I just realized Noctis prices are going insane and they ar now 65 mil. I got both of mine for just under 50, 3 months ago.

So I guess, asset wise, its not awful. None of the ships are priced at world shattering numbers. I don't have dozens of 'elite' ships. I don't want them however. I stick to what I can use. I worry that I'll get my Oni popped the first time I take it out. That is irritating because I really really hate to spend isk.

Most of my corp wound up logging on and I felt a bit happier in game. I got my wolf fitted out properly.

  1. Man this post makes me feel nostalgic for the time when I was running missions all the time. I had most of the same problems. As I'm more of a lone wolf type, I finally "solved" this by letting my Raven cruise missile everything down in level 4 missions while reading web comics in the in-game browser.

    I think the only interaction I had with actual humans during that time was with people I chatted with while playing, or the occasional ninja-looter showing up wondering why all the loot was blue (I hate salvaging and looting).

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Summer in Iceland - Day Six

It is the final day and we have moved past Sion's shark consumption. We left Cafe Loki and just strolled back through town. I wandered in and out of stores looking for soft gloves or socks. There are lots of gloves, socks, scarves, hats, and etc all over the place but most of them are made of wool and are as harsh and scratchy as anything I have ever seen. I wanted something soft and silky and amazing and I didn't find that which is okay. The general game plan was to find this Ice Cream place across the street from CCP. It seems that they make their ice cream daily and it is the most amazing ice cream ever. So, we head to this ice cream place which is also near a grocery store and some museums. We go in and Corbexx orders some terrible concoction of salted peanuts and some candy that I hate. He said it was delicious. I was stuck staring at the flavors and not knowing what anything was because I'm illiterate in Iceland. I also have an ongoing problem with catching the
