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.

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…

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…
