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.

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

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

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f
