Intercepted

I discovered interceptors. Or, more accurately, I discovered that I could fly interceptors. When I first started, interceptors was one of the first skill books that I purchased for myself. I got it with the aim to eventually fly them around when I wanted to run from point A to point B in a small fast ship. Chella just never reached the point where she could fly them. Every time I started her on Gallente Frigate V I got distracted by something else.

While doing something else I idly checked to see if Sugar could fly interceptors and to my surprise, she can. Thrilled, I stole the skill book that has been sitting in a container for almost a year now and plugged it in. Now I can try my hand at interceptor tackle sometime or another.

However, I'm mostly just obsessed with the ship. It is physically beautiful to my eyes. It looks like a dragon fly. I am often disappointed in the looks of ships in Eve. I grow used to them or don't mind them or am horrified by them but rarely do I look at them and go "Oh my how lovely".

I've noticed some Minimtar ships have quite the insectile design philosophy going on. My Scimitar reminds me of an insect and I named the Stilitto Dragon Fly because well... it is.

I ran around a bit today and saw something interesting. Nulli often times hangs out in the area. However, a massive spike like that was unexpected. Nulli Secunda was moving its capital ship and super capital ship fleet. They decided to take a detour through Molden Heath. Local spiked to over 60 people. Only three belonged to my corp.

When I undocked to see what was there I was greeted with a dscan containing, 9 Aeon, 13 Archon, 2 Avatar, 2 Chimera, 4 Erebus, 1 Leviathan, 1 Moros, 4 Nidhoggur, 12 Nyx, 4 Revelation, 1 Rorqual, 9 Thanatos and 2 Wyvern. There was also a Anshar rolling along. Probably full of fuel for all of those caps.

I guess they are moving per their new plans.

To bad I didn't warp to the cyno to snap a picture of all that capital ship. The ship names were pretty amusing. The things one sees puttering around can be quite interesting.

  1. And I thought the 100 ship birthday fleet that rolled through the system I was ice mining in yesterday was big. I guess Molden Heath really is where all the cool kids hang out :)

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…
