The Tears of Entitlement

In case anyone has been at their tear jars and consuming them without thought for the future, there are, thankfully more to be harvested.

I try to avoid holiday posts. I really do.  But holiday entitlement is one of those things that irritates me.  CCP gives out Holiday gifts.  I think that's cool of them.  I wouldn't care if they did not.  They did so this year.  People got a random collection of the special edition items they have made, a bunch of the trading cards, and a random special ship.

I don't need this but it is very cute and I will keep it and giggle at it.

Also, we got some nifty implants that were introduced last year at Crucible.  You get one or the other but not both.  The implants are a set so you need both.  I lost mine a week after putting them in to my first death and podding in low sec sometime in my third week of playing.  I got over it.

But, people will make money in Eve.  Everything that CCP introduces is an opportunity. I already saw someone drooling over the need to collect all of the New Eden Open trading cards.  While, I myself, may roll my eyes a bit over it, at the same time its cool that little side projects like that are open to people that like that type of thing.

And then... well then... there are the people who write posts on the forum full of tears because their investment went bunk because CCP is evil and gave out free things that they gave out for free before!

Because making a gamble and an investment isn't guarantied.  Nowhere does CCP have a rule set by which they can never re-release something they released before in case someone hoarding the free released stuff loses precious space pixel money based off of the free thing .    So, I will spread some joy and feed anyone in need of tears on this delicious, delicious thread that was locked only to soon.  Its still well worth the read.

Maybe I can find a corner to cry in because I was given free stuff and its so hard and painful to be me with the free things.

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

CSM9 - Day 140

The week has been the Summer Summit for CSM9. That did not mean that the world stopped for us. Things in Eve moved forward because we have the Oceanas release coming on the 22nd. CCP Fozzie has released a small interceptor tweak . Interdictors are also being retouched for fine detailing. The thread about it is up. This is not a rebalance where the ships gain complete new roles and identities. This is focused on fine tuning. I have spoken up about the fact that the situation where Titans were being bumped out of POS shields was not acceptable to me. I’ve voiced my disagreement as have other players. CCP Fozzie has posted changes to cyno usage outside of POS force fields . I am not fully happy with this change. I am happy that it will stop the Titan bumping issue. I am not happy with not being able to light cynos on shields. I feel that it will negatively affect tackling ships hugging force fields and I have expressed that. The topic came up in one of our Summit Meetings with CCP Fo
