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

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about 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…
