Little Hope Bubbles

We had a very nice discussion last night about pipe dreams and expansions I wanted to think about. There is a strange swirl of energy around the Rubicon expansion. I believe because it is so close. Often, we have spent months testing and discussing the changes. Right now we are going to see an expansion hit in under two months and we are not yet on the test server with it. This has the involved, worried.

Today, CCP has decided to take back the Marauder changes and re-enter into their balancing. Are we to see both versions for testing? I don't know. I can't fly them and have very little opinion about them. Things like that support the 'meh' of the upcoming expansion. Yet, at the same time, the player base (that pays attention to announcements) is on fire with thoughts, ideas, whispers, over what we are going to see. The cries of, "What are the stats on the new ships?" might be the loudest but as it often seems to be, I'm paying attention to something else.

I'm curious about the PvE looting and tractoring module. Discussing it in my chatroom last night we were wondering if the Noctis would die. The Noctis is a lovely ship that salvages in amazing ways. However, with the nerfing of meta 0 loot, I've not needed my Noctis in low sec. I still have one in high sec that I plan to bring back out for my new venturing into mission running.

The question is, how big will this module be? How will it be moved?  My dream situation is this.

This module should be moved by the Noctis. It should be dropped into the field and the Noctis sits on top of it. Together they tractor in Everything, with the Noctis grabbing the wrecks that are to far out for the module. The module loots and the Noctis salvages all the things. Then the Noctis gathers the module up and off the two warp into the sunset.

That is my little personal dream. I now have a little check list of things I'd like to look at when the test server goes live. The warp speed changes, the POS siphon, and the looting module are on my to do list so far.

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

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

Summer in Iceland - Day Six

It is the final day and we have moved past Sion's shark consumption. We left Cafe Loki and just strolled back through town. I wandered in and out of stores looking for soft gloves or socks. There are lots of gloves, socks, scarves, hats, and etc all over the place but most of them are made of wool and are as harsh and scratchy as anything I have ever seen. I wanted something soft and silky and amazing and I didn't find that which is okay. The general game plan was to find this Ice Cream place across the street from CCP. It seems that they make their ice cream daily and it is the most amazing ice cream ever. So, we head to this ice cream place which is also near a grocery store and some museums. We go in and Corbexx orders some terrible concoction of salted peanuts and some candy that I hate. He said it was delicious. I was stuck staring at the flavors and not knowing what anything was because I'm illiterate in Iceland. I also have an ongoing problem with catching the
