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.

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f

What are all of these buttons for?

My snooty villager, Naomi, wants to move out. I picked her because she is a blue cow with some wild makeup but we have not really bonded like I have with Savannah and Mitzi... oh wait yeah wrong game. So, my clan is almost finished the second step of the Manhunt in Division 2. We just have one more zone to clear and then we can hunt down the secondary target to reveal the next... err wait, waaaaaiittt... Sorry about that. Resetting things. What do I want to do? That has been my problem for a while now. If I play Eve, what do I want to do in Eve? While I did PvP it was never my draw. The old PvE sucks. The new PvE may be okay but do I want to do it? Who am I? What am I? And do I need to be unique and interesting? I think that I may want to look in small wormholes and try a exciting, fragile life. With some of the ships that are available I can, perhaps, have an interesting life where I may or may not fall prey to someone but it does not have to define what
