Eve Vegas 2013 - The Conclusion

Yes, Eve Vegas is worth it. Even for quiet wall flowers like myself. The last thing I did was check to see what the plans are for next year. The same time frame of the third week of October is already on the table. Hotels are not yet decided but he hopes to have stuff up by January. If you want to come and didn't come, do some planning. Come if you can. It is a lot of fun and worth the time.

Mark726 and the NASA speaker (I have to figure out what his name) were both amazing presentations today. CCP Rise did a PvP thing but he used poker to relate to PvP. I have no idea about poker or any card game. The topic went over my head. I sat in on the Community Round Table and did some of the UI Round Table. I then secured an extra battleship to send to a corpmate and chatted with Zapawork over next years plans.

Although I am in Vegas until Wednesday, I'll be returning the blog to its regularly scheduled, less desert focused, schedule. If I have something to write about.

I'd like to say thanks for those that took the time to read all of this. I am not a member of any of the Eve News sites. I'm not a member of any of the Eve powers. I'm not Eve Famous. I do these write ups because they are what I would like to have access to if I couldn't attend these events. I try to keep my opinion out or separate it so that it is easy to see where my thoughts separate from what is actually going on. I'm not here to soak people in propaganda and agendas. I just want to share the information as I'd want it shared.

It's been a lot of fun writing it all down. I advise checking in on the Twitch streams. I know most people love recordings. If you can't watch try to listen if you want the information. I focused my time and energy on the Rubicon stuff and the Round Tables with the Devs which are not recorded. I hope this was informative and that the format was better than last years when it comes to readability.

Thanks again. I'll be back for 2014.

  5. Well your out blogging the Robo Blogger so I don't think it will take to long for you to be Eve Famous. I already see your name bantered around in comments and threads from time to time.

    Thanks for the coverage and the insight into the roundtables that were not broadcast.

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…
