Updating and Adjustments

My Blog continues to grow and flex with me.

First, I updated its name from the goofy moment of amusement that was the blogs birth into something that reflected what it actually was.

Today, I decided to switch the character the blog is focused on. Chella Ranier is whom I started with. However, she has become a support character over the months. While she does not fade into the background, she is not the character that does everything and talks to everyone.

So, I changed the blog's 'person' to adequately reflect what is being said. While Chella is a valuable character to me, she is not what defines me as a player anymore. She is not the social hub of my game. Over the next few days I will tweak and clean things up.

After I met my pirates, I made Sugar with the intent to learn to PvP with her. I've done that but as my entire game changed from my initial vision, so has the dynamics of what character I play the most. Sugar is the one who is making the impact in the game. Also, things like my killboard will be easier to find and make more sense to people.

Sugar is also only 3 weeks younger then Chella, so time wise, I've pretty much been playing them both nonstop since I started. When I hadn't logged Chella on for the last week because I hadn't needed her, I realized that it was time to switch them out and focus the blog a bit better on who is actually speaking.

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…
