I tried some hunting this morning...

I tried to hunt some guys down in my home system. I failed. I did make the effort.

First, I blame my auto dock reaction. The guy had come through in a scanning heron while I was doing a site. I commented to him that he never talks to me. I talk in local. I can often get people to talk to me. Maybe I am odd that way.

Anyway, he tells me that he does not speak English and that he is Chinese. He also said he was scanning. I said so was I. He said that made us enemies. I told him to bring the pewpew.

He left the system.

A bit later he came back with a cynabal and a drake. I was out in my cane. I did a quick status check and realized that both the cynabal pilot and the drake pilot are less then two months old. Interesting.

So, I talked to them some more while I got backup. In my mind, I realized that I should be able to tank them both and kill at least one. They have warrior 1's out and they are doing a site. I start to distract them as I try to find out where they are.

We have this conversation:
[12:17:59] Sugar Kyle > hi :D
[12:18:02] Sugar Kyle > bigger ships and friends today?
[12:18:37] 20 J > my buddy
[12:19:06] Sugar Kyle > I see
[12:19:17] Sugar Kyle > hes normally buzy squatting on the plex
[12:20:01] Falcon KF > I am isk farmer what they call me
[12:20:08] Sugar Kyle > yes that is what they would call you
[12:20:34] Sugar Kyle > what are you doing today?
[12:21:42] Falcon KF > no mind

The Falcon KF person I recognized as someone we had started to report as a bot in another system. At downtime I'd see him log on (I come home when the servers are rebooting) and go straight to a static 2/10 plex in a high sec pocket. He then spends 12 or so hours a day in that plex.

I've never seen him in something that was not an assault frigate. Today, he was in the cynabal. They lost the drake in the plex they were doing. I had scanned the system, so I can only assume they had an escalation from next door.

I reported him as an ISK farmer. He may have been joking with me. However, the signs were there. The nosy gamer was writing about the fact that the new Unified Inventory system has broken a lot of the botting programs out there.

I did not manage to get them. Just as a warpin was nailed they popped the overseer and ran.

Sigh.

I really am at an awkward phase where I want to do adult things but I am still in a pups body. I've been pretty pissed off recently, so its a bit hard to remind myself that I will get there.

I actually stopped and looked back at my "to get" skill list. I'm almost done with it. I was surprised by that. However, I've been following it rather faithfully for months now.

Lately however, I've been super sensitive or everyone really is questioning my lack of skills. I have 6.8million skillpoints. I'm trying. I'm not there. Good lord, I'm so not there. I've worked so hard to accept that things will take time. Now it feels like sometimes, people around me forget that fact.

Sigh. Grumpyness.

Did I mention that the boys had all sorts of amazing pewpew last night?

Yeah... I'm going to bed.

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

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

Maybe one day!

 [15:32:10] Trig Vaulter > Sugar Kyle Nice bio - so carebear sweet - oh you have a 50m ISK bounty - so someday more grizzly  [15:32:38 ] Sugar Kyle > /emote raises an eyebrow to Trig  [15:32:40 ] Sugar Kyle > okay :)  [15:32:52 ] Sugar Kyle > maybe one day I will try PvP out When I logged in one of the first things I did was answer a question in Eve Uni Public Help. 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
