Eve to Music: Eve Gameplay Defined

I've been reading some of the other blogs out there this weekend. There is so much depth and seriousness. I almost feel bad that I've had a good weekend with a lot of play time, light hearted humor, met a few new people and done a few rather silly things. The game of serious spaceships can be serious without the weight. I know I have my days where my spaceships weight me down with their importance. This weekend has not contained any of them.

But, to understand how serious the barge changes are and the tech changes and the social problems of Eve Online, I have stepped away from sharing my exquisite taste in pop music for something a bit more profound.

I promise I don't do any of this for fun and giggles. :D

Now, there is a serious element here. No, honest! The lyrics, if taken into the concept of Eve Online work beautifully. From the 'creation' of the first clone and becoming a pod pilot to the circular push and pull of the in game economy.

Anyone remembering their first days will remember how big the game was and how often many of the elements expressed here defined their decisions and choices. I may have been singing the song in my car but that does not remove the renascence the lyrics have with playing Eve.

"Circle Of Life"


From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done


Some say eat or be eaten
Some say live and let live
But all are agreed as they join the stampede
You should never take more than you give


In the circle of life
It's the wheel of fortune
It's the leap of faith
It's the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life


Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars


There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

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

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f

What are all of these buttons for?

My snooty villager, Naomi, wants to move out. I picked her because she is a blue cow with some wild makeup but we have not really bonded like I have with Savannah and Mitzi... oh wait yeah wrong game. So, my clan is almost finished the second step of the Manhunt in Division 2. We just have one more zone to clear and then we can hunt down the secondary target to reveal the next... err wait, waaaaaiittt... Sorry about that. Resetting things. What do I want to do? That has been my problem for a while now. If I play Eve, what do I want to do in Eve? While I did PvP it was never my draw. The old PvE sucks. The new PvE may be okay but do I want to do it? Who am I? What am I? And do I need to be unique and interesting? I think that I may want to look in small wormholes and try a exciting, fragile life. With some of the ships that are available I can, perhaps, have an interesting life where I may or may not fall prey to someone but it does not have to define what
