Crash the Camp; Sub Revenge

Earlier in the evening we had an offer of a brawl with Eve Uni. While people assembled themselves one of our drakes was caught in a gate camp several systems away.

Undock to go save him...

But it was to late. Sigh. He podded his way to where we were and we shipped him into something else so that we could brawl with Eve Uni.

After we waved goodby to them we shipped up and went hunting. The gatecamp was run by our new favorte friends. I was given word that they caught someone from Eve Uni in their trap as they passed through...

Not a problem.

Nice little fleet.

With word that they were still there, we streaked towards them. At least one of them would be GCC due to their attack on Eve Uni. That meant they would not be on gate but would be close by. With two bait ships sent in, they pounced. Bait jumped gate and the rest of us came in afterwards.

The situation was not nearly as pretty. Their drake/drake/cane/rapier quickly turned into a cane/rapier escaping and two drake wrecks.

The tables were turned. We slunk past them and crept into the next system. We tried to engage them a few more times but people were starting to yawn and post battle fatigue mixed with it being late night for many members kicked in. We headed home and broke the fleet down.

Time for some more time on SiSi for the AT Practice.

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…
