War, Missions, and Not Caring

About two days ago, the war dec was pulled. I had heard that there was some discussion going on about it. Negotiations or diplomacy or something vague such as that. Then, the other corp had the wardec pulled and two days later ours was pulled. About four hours later, they rewarded the first corp and last night us again.

I can only roll my eyes over it. My opinions are my opinions on the entire thing and I think the entire thing is ridiculous. All three corps live in low sec and in the same part of low sec only a handful of jumps from each other (read that as 3). During the war dec the corps still group up together to kill other enemies.

I am not privy to running the corps or being on their special channels.

The funny thing is that I had someone threaten me idly with a wardec elsewhere. I was giving them some information that they requested. The wardec came up and they said they'd have to wardec my corp to make sure we were not interrupting their supply chain. I shrugged and told him I'd have to go and explain why we had another wardec and apologize to my corp for being friendly to people. He then changed his mind and said that it is pointless to wardec a lowsec corp and that we were not large enough to give them good recordings of battles. I just bowed out of the conversation at that point.

I can't say that I really give a fuck about the entire thing. It seems so pointless.

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…
