Wardec

I logged in with an evemail on each account. I was a bit puzzled. While wildly popular, I do not often get Evemail, much to my sadness.

One of the other pirate corps wardeced us. We fly with them and we shoot at them and they at us all of the time. It seems that the relationship has always been a level thing. So, when the war dec came in I wondered what had happened.

It seems that they are unhappy that when they pewpew with us they have to deal with gate/station guns since they are all flashy red. We stay yellow because being flashy red is inconvenient. Therefor, the wardec is to level the playing field, per them.

I was going to comment how we are not technically 'pirates' or 'outlaws' because we stay above flashy red. However, this kind of defines it for me. We're a low sec PvP corp. We are called pirates.

Hmmm. At first I had a rush of 'oh shit'. Then I realized I didn't care. I'm cautious of them anyway and never hang around them. A day ago, they asked us to come probe out the carrier that I didn't get on the kill mail for. I dunno, it makes me roll my eyes. I was worried for my high sec shenanigans but then I realized that they don't do high sec.

I'm not dropping corp and running. Low sec is still just as dangerous as it was before. I didn't trust the group then and I am glad that I didn't get warm, fuzzy feelings for them as I have another corp we run with. This corp even says that they are not blue to anyone or anyone blue to them.

This is why I am here. Sure, there is the newbie thrill of it all. At first I had a 'should I stay in station and play my alts?' moment. Then I realized that no, nothing has changed. The funny part is that I go out of town for 10 days next week. I will still play, but my login will be from England. They may or may not get tired of it. It is their isk to spend. I am sure that there will be others in the future.

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…

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…

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…
