My wallet is on fire

I spent isk today as if I suddenly hated it. My eyes are still boggling a bit since I just dropped around 300mil.

Soon, that won't even cover the ships I want to fly. For now, I think it is the most expensive buying spree I have yet had. I remember the day I got a Domi and a Noctis almost back to back and spent like 90 mil. Soon I will be posting billion purchases, I can feel it coming.

My wallet screams.

I'm down 500mil from that loan but I try not to think of it.

I wound up with 3 fully fit hurricanes. I contracted them to my corps jump freighter toon. I also had to buy a new set of sisters probes and launcher because I lost yet another covops frig today. Turns out the rats that spawned scramed her. She was fucked and could not warp out. However, I salvaged a piece of T2 salvage off the frig that covered the cost of the frig. I consider that a win in the end.

However, for the two I have lost (had a spare in the station) I've earned over a bil. So I can't actually complain. However I will anyway.

I've been reading a lot of threads on the Eve Online forums. Its great mealtime entertainment while I am chatting. These are not always productive but the 'theme of Eve' comes up a lot in the arguments for the PvP vs No-PvP crowd. One thing is about the entire loss concept of Eve.

The reason I complain about spending isk is that the isk I spent to create and fit those hurricanes is gone. I know that those hurricanes will be blown up. Probably, in rapid succession. Once they are gone they are gone. I will be tossed into space in my pod and I will attempt to escape before my pod is also destroyed. The goal is to have fun in them in the meantime. However, a lot of games don't have loss like that.

I also decided to help someone. Being the random person I am in there is a random corp chat room I hang out in. They have aquired a new member who is a nice guy and I encouraged him to apply to them. Well, they got him a set of +2 implants the other day. I felt they could have dropped more isk so I got him a +3 set and then gave him a +2 set to sell.

Just had a 'nice' day.

Plus, I'd been working and working and building isk and building isk.

The Eve work place.

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

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

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f
