Event Coordination

I am putting together a thing for my boys and extended family boys in two weeks.

It is dipping my toes into a more complex event coordination. Earlier this year Diz had a fleet concept idea but it never came through. The ships for it are still somewhere in some station. Anyway, it just never happened. I'd been anticipating this fleet for some time. Of late, my personal confidence level has grown in indirect ways. I'm ready to be Diz's coordination and planning. He just has to FC it.

I am trying to put it together. I'm am rather worried that the entire thing will be a flop. I just need people to show up and join fleet. I am providing the ships but I can not provide the people.

I just spent a lot of ISK on this project. I'm vest for it to be a success. By a success I just want good participation and people to leave fleet when we are done with a smile. I am hoping that if I set it up, they will come.

Dher said I should tell people what ships to bring. I vetoed that. I've learned that asking people to come prepared is a preassigned recipe for fail. I've written posts and today I am sending out a detailed mail. Yet, I know the day of, people will be like, "Oh! What are we doing? I don't have a ship." despite the two weeks of notice.

And that is fine. I just need their bodies and their participation.

I also need to grind up more ISK since I just spent ISK on the fleet. I am debating adding a donate to the Event Holder line at the end. Perhaps that is to silly or I am greedy. I'll figure that out if it is a success or not. Even if it is successful and everyone gushes about how wonderful it is, I won't be personally backing this type of thing on the regular.

Thinking about logistics... I did a Jita run the other day to pick up my orca pack and drop it off where my indy toon lives. I asked if anyone needed anything run up there is back. Its a 30 some odd jump trip so it takes a moment. Ender goes, "Take up my faction stuff?" I'm like, "Sure" so up pops a trade window. I dump it into my hold and then look at it.

It took me until Gallente space to clear the spots from my eyes from the shiny light erupting from all that bling. The non shiny items were not Ender's. Surprise. I also had a death grip on my jump/warp/cloak until I got there.

I jumped thorugh Uedama as well. The sheer amount of concord on the gate told me that there had been a gank. Go, go cloaky hauler.

Nex time I'm gonna put a bill limit on it or something. Gah.

Comments

  1. Ok I saw this post had no comments on it and I randomly decided it needed one (I do such things when I am tired) anyways,
    I would like to do a comparison on what those items are worth on the EVE market today and wonder if the difference is in the amount of drops available or the amount of people looking to find the items and therefore increasing supply and competition on the market. It is interesting to myself at least to wonder how much things have changed in 5 years.

  2. PS I know the feeling of hauling WAY more than your comfortable with I remember the first time I hauled a couple bill in my ship to/from a trade hub and anyone who doesn't sweat it obviously has a lot more isk than I do lol.

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…

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…

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…
