Pew Pew? Ouch

I've been collecting drone minerals for someone of late. The super low sec Noctis makes a tedious task productive all of a sudden.

I've also started working on scanning. We'll see how that goes.

Beyond, life has been uninterested for the past few days, mostly because I have been at work. However, this evening while I was wandering around the belts looking for a decently sized belt rats to shoot at, one of my corpies dropped in on me and whooped my ass.

I had a vague feeling he was about to do it so surprised, I was not. Since I was in a frigate he was gentle. He just drained my cap and left me floundering, unable to flee, and beat the fuck out of my shields. You have to be careful, playing with frigates, they pop easily. He was also in a Sleipnir.

I ran off as soon as he let me go and licked my wounds. At that point some random ass dude hopped in system in a Punisher and started to look for me. I realized that I wasn't fit for a PvP fight. I needed to upgrade a few mods to their Tech 2 versions and I didn't have a point, just a web.

I'm still rather frettish about fighting on my own.

However, there was great disappointment, I was told, in my not having a point on the Jag. I had a web on it as I was told to do since it is a PvE ship and I use it to Rat. However, unable to bear the disappointment, I went and changed out my web for a scram. Immediately I couldn't fit anything else so I restructured and took off the rocket launcher. It wasn't useful anyway. I have no missile skills and it hit for about 19 damage.

So now my Jag, while still delicate, is a bit more PvP fit as it should be.

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…
