Patience brings the PewPew

I was running around earlier today, somewhere in a sleep deprived hazed. I found a few sites and happily scanned them down and ate their goodies. From what I can see, via the Dev Blogs, the newest items that are coming into the game will be found in the exploration sites. That is rather nice. I hope that it means I will have a chance to make some nice ISK while everyone is looking for these new toys.

Speaking of ISK, the market has crashed when it comes to mods. Some thing it is because there are fewer meta 0 mods to make people say 'fuck it' and reprocess everything. It is good that the meta 1-2 cost less for people, but bad for people like me. So, in the end, the changes did nerf my Salvage income. This will be a possible buff to my exploration income.

Anyway, one of my alliance mates found a hurricane that had been pewpewing folks a bit earlier. He was a -9 so the alliance mate went to see if he could get the hurricane to engage. While he did that, we set up people on each side of the system. The third exit was to a high sec pocket, and his sec status was way too low.

He flirted with my alliance mate who was in a drake. That type of fight can be interesting depending on what people are flying. He eventually docked up. We decided to hang around and wait on the gates. It's been super slow in game the last few days with the release of Diablo 3.

Patience won. After a bit the cane undocked again and hopped the gate right into our little, waiting fleet.

It was a not a fair fight for him in anyway. We then proceeded to hold him there, in structure, while our alliance mate jumped the gate and got on the killmail. Killmail whoring. However, he did a lot of the work trying to get the fight.

Killmails themselves are an interesting topic of conversation. For some people it is a brag sheet in which they say they are amazing. To me, it shows that someone actively PvPs. It lets you see what they do (groups and etc) and what fits people use from when they die. I'm not overly obsessed with the ISK efficiency. Some people are. For me, its more along the lines of showing that I am PvPing actively and regularly. A lot of people go on about their PvP experience but can't pull anything to reference it.

Free Intel, sure but the player behind the toon still matters. I'm not obsessed with them. I just like that I have a proven track record of getting out there and fighting. Only the battles that end in explosions generate killmails. Not all battles end in explosions. However, one of the things CCP was discussing was to make support characters show up on killmails. Logi take aggression for repping you and assisting you so they deserve a spot on the killmail. I think it will cause more people to not mind doing the logi thing because right now, you don't show up so it looks as if you are inactive.

Anyway, after the fight I was thinking that I shoulda taken pictures. Damn.

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…
