10 Million Skill Points and Diplomacy

I reached a milestone in my young game life this weekend and crossed the 10 million skill point mark with Chella.

It was unexpected. One moment I was at 9.8 and the next at 10.2. I'm sure some things passed between those points.

Now I have a toon with 10 million SP. Sugar is close behind with 8.9. I'm a badass, yes indeed, lookie, lookie.

One of the more amusing things is that 5 million is a mental hurdle for me. When introduced to things, you pick up the oddest points of refrence. When I was into my second or third day in the newbie systems, I came across an anchored can. That can was an advert for a corp. It said that they had a 5 million SP minimum. At the time I had around 600k and I remember thinking that I would never have 5 million.

Somewhere along the line, the idea of 5 million as being my first point of being 'wantable' anchored in my head. Now I am double that and I am still absolutely terrible. Poor Chella's skills are cleaning up but they are still all over the place.

Ender asked me a few days ago how I was doing with my Scimi training. I blinked at him and reminded him that I had an Oneiros. I then told him that I'd start Scimi training next month. I have a few more nav skills that I want to get together for her.

I think I will remap her into spaceship command and drones. This way she can get her drone skills out of the way and her advanced star-ship command out of the way along with Minnie cruiser V. With my vaguely plan here, she will be able to plant herself into her carrier by the end of the year in suitcase mode.

Then the carrier can be rendered into a glorious explosion trying to do something amazing.

Beyond that, my alliance leader decided that my love of ~~~~words~~~~ was such that I'd get the alliance diplomat title. He told me to go forth and be diplomatic to people. So, yah, whatever that is going to entail... yay?

I have chatter V trained but I fear that social butterfly is only up to III on the way to IV. However, the support skill of good natured has been at V for a while now and I believe that with an implant or two I will be able to bridge the gap while I wait for social butterfly to finish training up.

In celebration of these two glorious events, I shall make my own chat channel!

Amazing.

Yet, I have no idea what to name it. Right now, its closely tied between something about cupcakes and something about cupcakes. Hopefully, with some sleep I can come up with a creative and interesting idea that is easy to remember.

I'm also really liking Tilde as the channel name. We'll see.

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

Maybe one day!

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

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
