New Alt, Slightly Used Player

I've made a brand new, sparkling alt and I'm curious if I can find a home for her.

I'd like to expand my horizons but I'm not interested in moving my entrenched life in THC2.  It was a suggestion made to me by my business partner while I was stressing out over some things and also lamenting the fact that I am often alone in my time zone due to my schedule change last year.  He suggested that I try out a new character and go and find a corp that does things a bit differently and see some more of the world.

I mulled upon it and found it not to be a bad idea.  I'm the first to say that my experience is pretty limited.  I've grown up a low sec pilot.  I know little to nothing about high sec. I know little about null, less about Sov, and I think I've been into wormhole space a total of three times.

I'm a social person and I have noticed that I currently spend the start of my time zone alone.  Due to my work schedule I'm often on during the early day after down time on weekdays and few people that I fly with are on.  I do some scanning, tend my industry and often ship spin, write and chat my hours away.

Now, one might say this is a perfect time to go off solo and do that type of thing.  Going solo has become a personal demon for me simply because it is not what I want to do. I like my fleets. I like being social. I like doing things with other people.  Trying to force myself to fly solo only causes me to not want to do anything. I've been trying to shove myself into a situation I don't fit in because other people think it is the best thing for me.  I'm going to have to say that it is not for where I am right now.

Why make an alt?  Why not buy one?  Or use one of my not Sugar alts?

Most of my combat accounts have dedicated support roles outside of Sugar who is my 'main'.  I'm also interested in a few things that come with a new account.  Will anyone take me in?  Life as a pilot with some starting from scratch.  I also don't want any baggage sot hat I can throw myself in with enthusiasm.

Why not just go and do it vs announcing it?  Because I want to blog about it.  I'm not a spy. I'm not an Awoxer. I'm just me doing some more stuff as me. I want to be able to blog about things. I want to write about my experiences as I currently do.  I don't want to run around playing cloak and dagger. I don't want to spend my time lying.  While others enjoy it deeply and that is the game they play it is not the game that I want to play.  I don't have the energy to spend hours playing pretend and then not doing my favorite pass time of writing about what I do in Eve.  Of course it may backfire against me. It is Eve after all, game of the paranoid.  But me?  I'm just me all of the time.

Also, this is what people suggest to new players.  Start Eve.  Find a corp.  New players are useful. I advocate it as well.  I'm curious to try the path myself. It will help with encouraging others later.  The only bonus is that I get to have full access to my finances because I'm not playing ridiculous games of hide the alt. I'm not going for a pure experience just something different.

As for what I want to do? I don't know. I'd like it to have pewpew.  Beyond that, I'm pretty open to trying things out.  I need to expand my horizons some.

So.... Brand new skillless alt, used player, financially independent  okay at learning, normally easy to get along with, blogs a lot looking for some stuffs to do.  Contact Sugar Kyle.  :)

    2. If you're interested in FW, I've got a little minmatar faction warfare corp (about a dozen folks). Fun pilots, usually doing something most nights. Based out of Auga, mostly.

  4. Have you tried Wormhole life?

    While we (Foo Holdings) have some space for more players (and bloggers are welcome), we have an industrial bent rather than an initiating PVP disposition. In a wormhole, PVP is a fact of life even for the most carebearish.

    Penny (of www.tigerears.org) seems to enjoy a wormhole pirate's life.

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…

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…

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…
