Differences Catching My Eye

I saw this picture on a science magaizne today at the store. I walked by and saw it out the corner of my eye. The first thougth that game to my mind was, "Why is there an image of Gallente space in CVS?"

Obsessed with Eve a bit much, am I?

I was reading Gevlon's post about lossmails and the comments got me thinking. I wasn't thinking about the post or the reason everything is going where it is.

I started to debate the micro and macro levels of personal interaction with Eve Online. I blog my little self away becuase I am obsessed with soaking words in ~~ and then putting them up. Beyond that, my world view is micro. I am very new in the game and focused on learning it and becoming (hopefully) good at what I do.

I know the macro world is out there. I read the forums, I read the blogs, I read the news site, and I keep up on what is going on with the world. I feel that not understanding the macro would create a thinness to the texture of my microworld.

My view of Eve is very much tinted by the way that I play it and my life in low sec. Because of this, part of the discussion went into AFK cloaking, a topic that has puzzled me. What I found, in the discussion, was a missing piece of the puzzle and new understanding.

The people docking up and hiding are not PvP fit. That may be a 'Sugar, duh?' type of moment for most. However, I have been raised in an environment where every ship is a PvP ship. My corpmates often wait in anticipation to be scanned down in their missions, sites, and plexs for a fight. it did not occur to me that people were doing things in dangerous space in normal PvE fit ships. Suddenly, the aversion makes a lot more sense. My solution would be to undock in said PvP ship and move on, but that is not the point.

The point is, I've learned something to expand my viewpoint and bring me new understanding.

My two random discussions about Ammo today helped as well. I use faction ammo and have from early on because it was what I was told to use. However, I don't run missions and pour huge amounts of ammo into them. I was reminded that a mission runner has to look at ammo costs among other things.

I run sites that range anywhere from 5-20mil without me shooting more then a handful of NPCs. My ammo costs, diluted by my lp usage is not a big deal to me. My LP I have hundreds of thousands of because of level 5 missions. I was raised to use faction ammo and spend the isk. My lifestyle supports it. It makes sense in what I do.

But, everyone is not me. :)

I enjoy learning the differences in peoples game.
