Haulers can't pewpew?

I managed to undock in the wrong ship and make it to the site I was going to do. I went to lock on an NPC and shoot it when I realized that I was in my hauler and had no gun or any pewpew capabilities.

*sigh*

I was punished for the huge attention lapse. The site despawned while I warped out and came back to it. Poor me.

Later, I found another Radar and a Mag site as well. While I had almost finished the Radar one of the larger more vicious PvP corps jumped into system. Because I was watching my dscan I was able to catch their scout, who was a cloaky falcon right before they came in. Once they decided to hang around for a bit I decided to pull my drones and leave my site. I had pulled one object out of it so the entire site was not a loss. Thankfully, when I came back it was still there and I managed to crack a few more goodies out of the cans. All told, it is about 20 mil worth of stuff for the hour it took me to find and pull it. Not bad. It'd be faster if I was better at killing the rats. I also keep finding angel chemical labs but I cant tank them. Its frustrating.

The second site was meh. At least there was stuff in it. As I finished it up, said corp came back through the system. I finished and docked. I need to go to work and I'm just not in the mood to play with them.

To top off my day, the contract I had up for the goodies dropped by the faction spawn the other day sold. 165mil for zero effort on my part. It was not even a large rat that dropped the shiny bit of shiny.

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…
