Eve Vegas

Five weeks until Eve Vegas. I was looking at the Facebook page for it and reading the announcements. 

WIth CCP involved this year it is a much larger event than last year. I'm in a strange point of hopeful and resigned. This will be my third Eve related event. I have enjoyed the previous two. Hovever, neither have been the world shattering events that I had hoped they would be. I blame this squarely on myself.

It might be surprising due to the volume of text I place upon this Blog, but I am a rather quiet and reserved person IRL. I define myself as boring. I am truly happy at home curled up in my computer chair fighting off my cat's incessant demands for my lap. I lost that battle the other morning. However, I normally win. But, back to the topic.

Eve Vegas. 

The last two Eve Events I have found myself having a hard time meeting people. Considering I cannot even bump into a conversation in Team Speak I'm not overly surprised by this. It causes me to hover on the edges and listen. Unless I am burned up over a subject. Then I'll go and make myself heard. Such as the Low Sec talk and some of the Dust talks regarding Molden Heath. Shyness, embarrassment, my distaste for being the center of attention in public all vanish when I have an agenda.

But, I have done a poor job of meeting people. It has been fascinating watching the Eve Famous and their orbit of followers. It is interesting seeing the engagement and interactions of people. I feel that I kind of float about the edges observing but not really joining in.

It made me look at the Pub Crawl which looks to be very interesting. I'm rather sure that I am going to sign up for it. It feels a bit wasteful since I am paying for Alcohol I will not consume. I guess my over expensive soda will have to compensate. I normally avoid social groups but I'm going to go for it. At the worst, I hate it. At the best, I have an interesting time.

And maybe I will meet people before the final day. Who knows. I won't hold my breath. I'm not outgoing in this respect and I doubt I will suddenly become so. But, I will try this. It will at least give me something to write about.

  1. I think the word you're looking for is introvert. I don't know if you've heard of it before or not, but it is a type of personality where one gains energy by being alone, as opposed to extroverts, who gain energy by being around other people.

    1. I know. It is just an easy buzz word to fall back on. I am very much the introvert. Large groups of people exhaust me.

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

Maybe one day!

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

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
