And Crash

I logged on this morning about an hour after downtime. Everything was up and the server population was around 23k people. This is a great time of day for me to scan sigs. One of my corp mates was on and had a sig that was eluding him. I logged on my scanner and headed to him along with my pewpewer to handle what I found for myself.

As I jumped a gate, I got a message that the 'air traffic control' was busy and that my session would jump in 150 seconds. In my other window, my scanning alt hit the next gate and got stuck in the same message. Time started to count down. My corp mate goes "Shit. I can't activate anything and I'm taking damage." He was also stuck. Then he got "Everything is busy" as he tried to get out of the system.

In my chat rooms the same complaints started erupting everywhere. Then people started crashing. No one could actually do anything and ships were exploding left and right. The petition system is going to be rather heavy this morning. About a minute later we get a message for an emergency 20 minute reboot.

I love the single server aspect of Eve. Sometimes it goes down. They do try to replace our stuff when lag like this happens. While people are accepting of losing their shit, they are not so accepting when they lost it because of a server burp.

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

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
