The Seeds of Dissention

[Warning: There is nothing productive about this post. Please insert tongue in to cheek...]

It seems that my unwilling muse has attempted to sow the seeds of dissention between THC2 and 7-2. With swift words he struck at Wex, leaving him puzzled and confused.



[12:15:46] Havaclue > Hey Wex, Kalek Astroth says you guys are a bunch of douche bags.
[12:16:05] Havaclue > He says that THC is better than you.
[12:16:10] Wex Manchester > First you're going to have to tell me who that is.
[12:16:27] Havaclue > he's the loud mouth here in Oddelulf
[12:16:30] Wex Manchester > And why I should care.
[12:16:43] Wex Manchester > He's correct, but that's beside the point. :)
[12:16:52] Havaclue > It doesn't matter to me, I just thought I'd pass on the info
We have no idea who Kalek is. Is the unwilling muse of Oddelulf attempting to turn THC2 and 7-2 against each other by suggestion that random people we have never met might be indulging in smack talk about us? Will Wex become so enraged and envious that he turns and chases down THC2 to prove himself? Will this cause a diplomatic relationship that nukes our relationship and causes a pirate war across the space lanes?
(image stolen from Wex) Wex cruised past and a diplomatic incident was avoided. But curiosity we left behind...

The random things said in local fascinate me. I've heard a lot about negatives about TEST Alliance for example. The members of TEST I have met and known have been reasonable normal people. The ones that have occasionally wandered into Molden Heath, the same.

Altaen was out killing all the things. This excites him greatly. He wound up in a system with Test and a fourty man gang on the station. Uncowed, and needing to return home for a fleet, he engaged them in a conversation. The result was that he wound up escaping in his Myrmidon and we discovered new words for us to puzzle over.

[22:59:22] Faife > myrmidon: coward's ship
[22:59:25] Faife > a novel
[22:59:29] Faife > by altaen
[22:59:42] Altaen > :)
[22:59:50] Karis > that's a warlord of the fleet you're speaking to
[22:59:53] Karis > have some respect
[22:59:56] Altaen > Indeed
[23:00:02] Sadleric > ### THUNDERDOME ONE MINUTE WARNING ###<br>SHOOT PURPLES. NO PODS. LAST SUBCAPITAL STANDING GETS 100M ISK.  G-0Q86 LOGISTICS UNDOCK (AMARR STATION)
[23:00:02] Altaen > I'll cut you guys a deal
[23:00:09] Sadleric > That ought to get some neutrals out.
[23:00:11] Altaen > I will warp to the KLMT gate at zero
[23:00:17] Altaen > If you let me off station.
[23:00:19] Sadleric > THUNDERDOME GREEN THUNDERDOME GREEN
[23:00:21] Aegan Tarn > can we bring caps?
[23:00:21] Faife > we'll cut you a deal:
[23:00:22] Altaen > You will probably catch me.
[23:00:23] Faife > shut up
[23:00:25] Altaen > And we will brawl
[23:00:28] Faife > that's the deal
[23:00:36] Skylif Beria > Give me 250 mil and I will let you pass.
[23:00:39] Karis > that sounds like a pretty good deal
[23:00:43] Altaen > You can even set up a bubble first
[23:00:43] Karis > but i think i have a better one
[23:00:45] Altaen > Go anchor it
[23:00:53] Karis > how about i give you the finger, and you give me my telephone call.
[23:01:22] Altaen > I am honourable solo warrior, but it doesn't mean I want to fight on grid with your Niddy
[23:01:40] Faife > no you're not you're a dude who talks too much
[23:01:43] Faife > we're now playing the quiet game
[23:02:38] Altaen > Thank you good honourable warriors
[23:02:44] Faife > QUIET GAME
[23:02:49] Faife > YOU SHITLITERATE FUCKGOBLIN
[23:02:50] Faife > JESUS
[23:02:51] Altaen > Now we shall do glorious battal
[23:03:02] Altaen > Hey
[23:03:06] Altaen > You guys aren't here??
[23:03:13] Faife > shut
Confused but safe, Altaen returned home and he was able to share these words and teach us his gifts of linguistic diplomacy. My own version of smack talk seems not reach these levels of eloquence and communication. So far I have linked the war targets the Mortal Kombat theme song as people engaged in station games and Weird Al's White and Nerdy. Later, after Diz chased someone down it was Donna Summers. I also had a discussion about nail polish. Mostly, of late, I have had to work from keeping the super celebrity, Wex Manchester from being over run and dragged off by his adoring fans.

    1. Back damn fan back! To the other side of the ropes with you! He is not to be scuffed or damaged but admired. Not pawed and spots worn away but appreciated and admired from a respectable distance! Gah. It's exhausting running 24/7 security around Wex.

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …

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…
