Horror and Fatigue

My laser specializations finally finished and I got the T2 medium lasers I had been waiting for to activate my Legion in "bigger, tankier covops" mode. I was excited. Then I stared at the horror on my screen.

I paid ISK for this.

W.T.F.

Thank god I play scrolled out. I know that each configuration is a different look. This one is the configuration I want for the Legion as Big CovOps project. The unexpected side effect is that it is truly, terribly, terribly fugly. Eve is just one of those games where hideous things are not cast aside.

In other world shattering exciting events...Kittens asked me to get him some skill books. I was in Rens at the time and the Rens prices were terrible. I hopped over five jumps and picked them up at a decent price. I then flew the 15 jumps back to drop them off. I opened my cargo hold to trade and saw that I had forgotten to load the books into the ship. I took a break to make dinner which just turned into complete fail came back, went and got them and dropped them off. I do like to complete the tasks I promise.

Sigh.

I'm going to bed.

  1. At one time or another i'm sure everyone has arrived at their destination only to find they forgot to put the stuff they were supposed to deliver in their cargo hold. Where is the undo button when you need it? =p

  2. There's always the dissolution snowmobile rather than the emergent alien starfish. At least you're no flying a hammerhead/potato hybrid for a t3.

    1. Agree. The proteus is definitely fuglier than the legion. Heck, I'd argue the legion is the BEST looking of the T3s.

  3. A pro tip against the "left things there": keep an assets window up and if you see a new line you instantly see that you left something somewhere.

  4. You think that ship is ugly? I just bought my first BS. It's a Dominix. "BS" is a good way of describing how it looks. 20% of my wealth on a space potato!

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…

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

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…
