Ode to New Stuffs

It is patch day!  I have serious posting that I might finish today but I must take a moment for more important things.

First: Ender.

I discuss Ender a lot.  He is a bitter vet. He feels no need to candy coat things. He is anti-social as all fucking hell. Razor is his favorite target to tease.  He is also a very amazing person and under that hard, spiky, crusty layer he does an amazing job at taking care of the corporation.

A simple, terse corporation mail this morning made me smile:
"armor honeycombing skillbooks dropped in hangers."
Last patch Ren was running around handing out the new sensor compensation skillbooks.  These are the things about a good corporation that make me so willing to invest my time into them.  Sure, getting a skill book is not a big deal.  But, to take the time to buy a stack and drop them into hangers makes sure that people are taken care of and that is what he did before he went to bed.

I then got a bit worried as I logged in.


What was Eve trying to say?  However, other people said that they got the same tutorial message and I am, in fact, not special.  I was still in my Stiletto and it did not appear that I was podded recently.  Mayhaps, a side effect of the patch.

But really, the most exciting part of patch day is that I can gizoogle the patch notes.  I feel that these delicate conversions of information into a wholly new spectrum of depth and sensory perception do nothing but enhance the experience of the patch.  To make sure that they are not lost to the depths of history I shall start to capture these crystalline droplets of individual beauty and save them in a permanent page to be browsed for eternity.

They can be found here in my new patch note archive.

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…

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…

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…
