Eve Offline

I play Eve offline as well.

This morning, my phone went off to drag me into the land of getting up to early.  While I lay, tangled in blankets and unsure if employment was worth the effort of waking up, I also checked my phone since it was in my hand from turning off the alarms.

I had someone saying good morning because they know my work schedule and live in the UK and are up.  I had someone else that left question about a discussion from last night.  I use gtalk.  No need to not put these  nice phones to use, eh?    I had a new twitter follower (yay!) and I read CCP Falcon comment about the downtime starting early and cursed a bit because I had forgotten that it would consume my prework playing time.

Mornings are my time to catch up on little idle things, see how the boys did over night and have quick social time with my central and west coast time zone corpmates.  I have some hot and heavy business deals going down to acquire new blue prints while I am at work.  The patch days are too often days that I am working.  Woe is me.

From my following Twitter arguments at work and forum reading to when Ender sent me a text to get my POS password for something.  Most of my corp has my phone number and I theirs.  Disconnects cause a flurry of texts to scatter back and forth so that the fleet knows why I lost connection.

The EveGate client is terrible on a cellphone.  Yet I still use it when I need to.  And soon there will be online/offline chat integration.  I fear for those that know me. 

This will work quite well because Eve doesn't stop when you log off.  The lack of a static world causes this constant connectivity.  Its a choice and one I chose to make.  I happen to like most of the people that I interact with on a regular basis and I enjoy talking to them just to talk to them.  Eve is the best chat client ever In My Opinion.

See everyone on the other side of Retribution.

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

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 th

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
