ROFL - I'm an absent minded idiot

There is a wormhole in our system for the last few days that leads to deep nullsec. It is irritating as hell because we have a flood of random people moving in and out of the system. Occasionally, they try to play with us but so far it has been unimpressive.

I undocked in my Jag to find another Jag 8k off of me. "Oh?" I thought. My corp mate had been trying to catch a Tengu from someone from the same corp. As soon as I undocked he started burning away. I let him burn, let him burn, my corpmate undocks in an Enyo and when he reaches 150km away I hit warp to an insta undock I have 160k off station and land behind him.

He freaked out and I learned that he had a MWD on his Jagar as my corpie landed on his other side and we tried to pincer him. Sadly, it did not work but it was very cool move on my part I thought. He then warped to the sun. Assuming he didn't want gateguns we went after him. Only he was gone. We warped back to station and he was about 200k off the station. We played around with him for about 20 minutes. Then another corpie entered system and landed in a hurricane. He decided to stop playing with us and left.

Blah. Whatever. We had a 5/10 plex that had just spawned in the system so we went to that instead. What started out as maybe one person doing it became a somewhat rediculious fleet for the mission at hand.

It is amazing what people will do right after downtime.

I do love the silliness. I did think the NPC fleet looked pretty badass.

Anyway, after doing the plex, I was GCC for repping my -10 corp mate. Again, we are doing an NPC site but I get GCC for repping a person that I am in the same corporation with and we are in low sec. Brilliant mechanic there. Anyway, I was salving with my other account and undocked in a frig and promply got blown up. I didn't realize why, undocked again in another POS ship and got popped again. The second time I looked at my screen and away from salvaging and realized that I had GCC.

Whoops.

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 th

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

CSM9 - Day 140

The week has been the Summer Summit for CSM9. That did not mean that the world stopped for us. Things in Eve moved forward because we have the Oceanas release coming on the 22nd. CCP Fozzie has released a small interceptor tweak . Interdictors are also being retouched for fine detailing. The thread about it is up. This is not a rebalance where the ships gain complete new roles and identities. This is focused on fine tuning. I have spoken up about the fact that the situation where Titans were being bumped out of POS shields was not acceptable to me. I’ve voiced my disagreement as have other players. CCP Fozzie has posted changes to cyno usage outside of POS force fields . I am not fully happy with this change. I am happy that it will stop the Titan bumping issue. I am not happy with not being able to light cynos on shields. I feel that it will negatively affect tackling ships hugging force fields and I have expressed that. The topic came up in one of our Summit Meetings with CCP Fo
