Come Back to the Theme Park

Siuil was nice enough to send me a chat he had with a friend from World of Warcraft.  I think it speaks for itself.

Banks: you still playing EVE?
Siuil: yeah ^^
Siuil: too far gone now couldnt give this up if I tried
Banks: come wow, new season inc in 1 week
Siuil: im fine thanks :P
Siuil: adrians already tried
Banks: haha
Siuil: reason I play this god forsaken game
Siuil: "I was there"
Banks: HAH
Banks: nice
Siuil: when you look at the scale of it
Siuil: thats truely stupid
Siuil: you wont EVER get something like that out of EVE
Siuil: and because its a single shard server its not something that happened elsrwhere
Siuil: WoW just cant compete anymore ^^
Banks: hah
Banks: i think wow has become too simplistic for u now
Banks: i think we've lost you for all eternity :SS
Banks: :D
Siuil: Unfortunately :(
Siuil: I just started to write a huge thing about what I managed to accomplish today
Siuil: realised it would be jibberish to you
Siuil: wrote this instead
Banks: hahah
Banks: rolfl
Siuil: basically this game requires me to think which is grea tnad I dont have to be online to progress my character
Siuil: therefore it appeals :D
Banks: i guess
Siuil: also due to it being single shard the community is terrific
Siuil: you wont get developers turning up to community meet ups
Siuil: in wow I mean
Siuil: its all player driven and yeah your right I couldnt go back to MMO's like GW2 anymore :P
Siuil: though GW2 and WoW were great fun
Banks: hehe

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

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…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…
