Sunday Summary

Sunday was a sleepy, lazy day. I spent most of the weekend slumped in my chair, wallowing in extreme laziness. I barely wrote anything. I sat over draft after draft and left the pages empty. If Saturday had not had my adventure in being ransomed I would have gone postless all weekend.

Not that I do not have ideas. The drafts I've created will filter out over the next week I suspect. I had ideas but no motivation. Instead, I spent Sunday floating around space, participating in various fleets for various objectives.

I flew a battleship out into glorious battle.


I can't say that I am in love with it. Its slow. I hate slow ships. I'll save them for when they are called for. I felt really useful as well, until someone called for an Oracle fleet. Sigh. Its a lose, lose battle still to be able to join all the fleets.

 Later, for a change of pace I flew a Cynabal into glorious battle. I fucked up and died. But I learned a lot about the ship. I like it a lot more than I have. This is why I have a stack of them in station. I may finally be figuring out what I like.

After that, I flew a Prophecy. Naoru helped me with some fits a few days ago and I finally have armor battlecruisers again. I tend to dislike armor ships. They are slow and clumsy and I get frustrated flying them. But, the Prophecy is so plump that its just okay that it is so slow and fat. I also learned that it is very, very small next to a Hyperion.


I stared into the swirling beauty of a cynosural field. They are amazing things, these little portals of energy. And so important to the functioning of Eve. Jumping in my supplies for TCS has made life much more fluid.


I'm halfway through the third book in a Song of Ice and Fire (aka the books for Game of Thrones). I read them back in the early 2000's but I've been reading them as I play Eve so that I understand what everyone is going on about in chat. Its helped.

And, I started planning out Eve Vegas in October. I purchased my tickets back in January. I don't know if anyone that I know is going. That has not yet been a prerequisite for me to go to Eve events.

At some point I downloaded Star Wars the Old Republic but I have not yet tried it.

I've lived and died and won and lost this weekend. Its been interesting and productive. I've missed fleets and think that as my cough heals from my cold I will step up my sociability a bit more and pull out of this alone spell that I have been huddled in for the bulk of this month.

  1. I think you'll be pretty disappointed in Old Republic D:

    Even my old guildies gave up on it. It's just WoW in space sadly. See if you like it, but I wouldn't spend a dime on the game itself unless you want to check out the features of the subscriber master race, which are pretty numerous over free to play.

  2. I just want to say thanks for that fight last night. It was nice to see someone not run away when put up against a fleet of similar composition

    1. I would not say that our logisticless fleet was a similar comp when you had 3 scythes on the field. :) But we where there to take the fight, be it as it may. It is why we play, after all. Thank you for undocking and bringing it to us.

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 th

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

CSM9 - Day 140

The week has been the Summer Summit for CSM9. That did not mean that the world stopped for us. Things in Eve moved forward because we have the Oceanas release coming on the 22nd. CCP Fozzie has released a small interceptor tweak . Interdictors are also being retouched for fine detailing. The thread about it is up. This is not a rebalance where the ships gain complete new roles and identities. This is focused on fine tuning. I have spoken up about the fact that the situation where Titans were being bumped out of POS shields was not acceptable to me. I’ve voiced my disagreement as have other players. CCP Fozzie has posted changes to cyno usage outside of POS force fields . I am not fully happy with this change. I am happy that it will stop the Titan bumping issue. I am not happy with not being able to light cynos on shields. I feel that it will negatively affect tackling ships hugging force fields and I have expressed that. The topic came up in one of our Summit Meetings with CCP Fo
