What an weekend

Not in a good way.

I missed out on a very exciting weekend full of huge battles and ass stomping on the part of my alliance. I missed most of the drama of burn Jita as well. I was enjoying the feeds when I got to glance at them.

I also managed to low my Myrm (finally) down in low sec. Due to my inattention as well. As always, you get comfortable and you make mistakes. I made mine because I got distracted and missed someone scanning me down. Fast scanners are fast and you have to stay on top of things. I was very tired, to tired to be playing and distracted and he landed and I was like shit.

One of the irritating things, was that as he landed on me and I tried to warp off, I had no warp options. This happened a few times and then they popped up. Yay me. So he tackled me and I asked for help. The only person nearby was buzzing around in a frigate. I knew I was going to die. He'd been after me for about two months and I had been giving him the slip.

So I sighed, and started to fight back. I knew I was going to die. My T1 fit shield Myrm is a PvE ship played by my non PvP toon. Its a decent enough fit to survive a bit in low sec and I got him into armor before he took me down.

I put a simile face in local when he tackled me. No reason not to have a pleasant attitude about it. He said "Goodbye" and I said "Yup" as I popped and warped off. I was annoyed but I was mostly annoyed because I had just finished a really good mag site and had about 40mil in my hold in salvage. That will teach me not to drop off between sites from now on. Frustrated, irritated, etc, very much so. It is what it is. I've been doing a good job keeping people away from me and today I screwed up.

I was able to see the new affects in the nice new format CCP made for us to see that I was tackled.

When I logged back on later, my CEO says he is going to have to harass me for my fit. My fit is fine, it may not be the best but it is what my toon is capable of. I've been playing a toon for PvP that I shouldn't be. Therefor, I'll stop and use my other toon with her battle cruiser instead. She would probably have won that fight as well. Such is the cost of learning.

I lose a ship and I learn. Considering its the third time I've been popped in PvP on that toon in five months, not to bad.

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…
