News Day

News is everywhere today. Ship changes. Dust. Fanfest planning.  Player gatherings.  Yet, it is always a bit different in each place.  Reading a dozen different opinions can make for an interesting complete picture once it is all twined together into a larger tapestry. 

"So I now have permission to let you all know that the skill change is scheduled for our Summer expansion 2013 (which most of you know tends to fall in the late spring)."
Last year, the patch was mid May.  The last calculation I saw was that it would take 40 days for the training to be complete by patch day from scratch (with remap I think).  Personally, I would want to be prepared by start of May.  However, we should have our summer patch date before then.

I have seen the changes referred to as a New Player Tax.  I disagreed with it and still do, however I can see where a person could get that feeling.  Of course, the proposed battlecruiser change has tinged me with a bit of bitterness towards the entire situation.  But, I'm reminding myself that nothing is set in stone and to get over myself and the fact that life will change.

Beyond that, the Dust 514 merger has gone well it seems.  An emergency reboot was planned for Eve and then cancelled.  The Dust players were notified to reboot their PS3s.  I am going to have to figure out how to turn on the television and PS3 and download and play it.  One of my chat rooms had a few players playing Dust and Eve at the same time.  It was very interesting.  Perhaps, tomorrow's project.  I'm terrible at First Person Shooters.

As part of my "things I finally remembered to sit down and do" I submitted the blog as a Fansite.  I'm reasonably sure that it qualifies as such.  With my starting another fiction project I figured that now was perhaps the time to go public with my obsession.  Now I get to wait for the review.

I also got a little banner award for placing in the fiction writing contest.  I'm going to go and stick it on the Eve fiction page I created.

  1. Do you have a link for the fiction? I'd enjoy reading it. Maybe I'm blind but I can't find it! Thank you.

    1. I had not noticed that it became buried on the side bar. I will correct that and give it a more visual place.

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

Maybe one day!

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
