What is Eve

War is on the horizon and I don't know how I feel about it.

I came to Eve because it is not a nice game. I know that people fight and wardec and do their thing but I really like the lifestyle of just roaming around and killing shit. However, that is not going to continue to be my life. Now, I have the choice of leaving my corp and roaming on my own but that is not what I want to do. So, I have to ponder the entire war thing. I think, for me, war, feels like such a strong term. I don't really have any strong feelings against other corps to feel the need to go after them. Like wise, while I expect people to want to harm me, it seems more serious and focused when you put that shiny red star beside their name.

The entire situation left me very grumpy yesterday. Grumpy enough that I lost my temper a bit at someone playing stupid ass gate games. Normally I'm super cool and relaxed, but I happen to hate some things in Eve I am finding out. One of those is people who wish to fight in an area with a particular type of game mechanic (IE Gate and Station guns) and then is unwilling to deal with them.

Plus, I was pissy in general over having my cheerios pissed in.

I normally play super nice in game. Sweet, easy going, "hi!" to everyone. Not today. The guy was playing gate games where he was trying to lure us into the gateguns and then hop into high sec. I assume he was hoping the guns would wear us down enough for him to get easy kills. For some reason, this type of thing pisses me off. He was in a battlecruiser and we were in cruisers and frigates. Just take the guns. Bitching out into high sec when a bunch of flashy pirates are willing to engage you and playing games like that just drive me mad. Engage or don't. I run away like hell quite often. I had a guy chase me in my myrm in his myrm. I knew I wasn't in a state to fight and I chose to run and avoid. I'm not saying you have to throw yourself into a stupid situation, but don't sit there teasing.

I understand hoping the other people make mistakes. However, this was a good 5 or so jumps back into high sec he did while we took guns. Then, bored, we leave and he tries to chase one member down. He dies to that member and I rage out all over him. He still didn't take guns btw. A thorax took guns over a freaking battlecruiser.

I was good at first. We put a little corp fleet of frigs together and went to get ourselves blown up. I am trying to join in on these things to relax some. I don't find being blown up fun yet but that's because I'm not grounded in the game yet. But, I go out anyway because really, why not. I'm so uptight about things and I learn a lot on these ventures. I also am trying to throw myself into more fleets but I do get distracted by making isk, especially when I don't have a lot of time on my hands for the day.

I'm rather grumpy it seems. :)

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

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

Summer in Iceland - Day Six

It is the final day and we have moved past Sion's shark consumption. We left Cafe Loki and just strolled back through town. I wandered in and out of stores looking for soft gloves or socks. There are lots of gloves, socks, scarves, hats, and etc all over the place but most of them are made of wool and are as harsh and scratchy as anything I have ever seen. I wanted something soft and silky and amazing and I didn't find that which is okay. The general game plan was to find this Ice Cream place across the street from CCP. It seems that they make their ice cream daily and it is the most amazing ice cream ever. So, we head to this ice cream place which is also near a grocery store and some museums. We go in and Corbexx orders some terrible concoction of salted peanuts and some candy that I hate. He said it was delicious. I was stuck staring at the flavors and not knowing what anything was because I'm illiterate in Iceland. I also have an ongoing problem with catching the
