Game Life Balance

There are times when my writings take on quite a serious tone. To an extent, that seriousness is real. I like to engage in aspects of Eve Online that are not limited to the realm of video game. Hence my musings on social relationships and the actions of people.
My personal action is to go on Vacation this weekend. I’m rather excited about it. It comes with some interesting side effects related to Eve. Normally when I travel I take my laptop with me. Because this is a three day adventure put together for us by my husband, we are both going to leave our laptops (but take phones and tablets for we are but only so brave) for the duration of the trip.
Eve is a game that one can pick up and put down at ease. My biggest task is making sure my skill queues extend well into next week. Sugar will work on her laser skills. Chella will follow Vand’s path of a perfect Guardian pilot. Life is good.
But… I have an in game life that is affected. I run my market and after three sold days of neglect it will be a bit tattered in some areas. Because I work on Monday, it will not be fully patched until mid week I expect. This is not life ending or world changing but it is a fact. I need to make sure my POS is also is fueled and happy. I find the duel planning amusing. I must pack my bag and fuel my POS and write my corp a note that I will be away in case anyone was planning to ask me to transport anything and make sure there is enough dog food…
This is my first trip this summer. In another two months I will be off to Eve Vegas so this last minute thing is pretty exciting.
My blog will continue to post random things all weekend. It's well trained it seems.
And then, I'll post some pictures of Niagara. We're staying on the Canada side.

  1. Have an awesome trip. The Maid of the Mist is an interesting boat ride if you've got the time.

  2. Seriously considering Eve Vegas. It's only a few hour drive from me in Arizona, and I love Vegas. I've only been gaming with Eve for 6 months so I'm not going to know anybody, but I still think I'd have a good time.

    Have a great trip! Stay away from the barrel rides (it's a scam: they promise a round-trip excursion).

    (Love the blog, btw. Will you be my Obi-wan/Yoda?)

    1. We're doing the boat to the falls, behind the falls, and the butterfly garden.

      I have no idea I'd that's a joke, your seeking a mentor, you plan to go to the dark side so long for a master to kill in the future, or a comment on My looks and inabilities with language.

      ;P

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
