Stress for the After Rubicon Interceptor

Last night, when I got home from work, Diz tells me to get into a Malediction and come to the fleet. I go, "Maliwhattion?" and scuff my toe against the ground. I can't fly them. I don't have Amarr Frigate V. I've never had any interest in Amarr frigates. Unholy, I know.

"We need an armor interceptor."

"Ares?"

"Sure."

"Yay!" I undocked Poptart, my Ares.

"Do you have anything expensive in your head?" he askes me.

I docked Poptart. "Not in a moment." I jump cloned, jumped back into Poptart and headed out.

I should retire poor Poptart. He has been through a lot and dragged himself through each time. However, I love him. He is my absolute favorite interceptor to fly and I don't know why. Off we went to catch up to the fleet as I went, "Weee!" in the background.

I haven't flown interceptors in combat since Rubicon landed. My Jag is already a lot faster. The interceptor is like a slingshot. Warping after the fleet and landing on the gate several seconds before the fleet (cruisers) is going to take a lot of getting used to. I caught up to the cruisers. Yay!

That is when I discovered the true horror. I can't take a bathroom break during long warps anymore. Interceptor is on the gate right now! Ahh. Woe is me. How stressful.

I did discover the new bubble colors in person.


The lovely pale green shimmer is somewhat minty and refreshing as I plunged face first into them. We got into a fight on the other side of this. I managed to not die.


But goodness. The extreme speed makes for extreme roaming minus biological needs. Was this really thought through? Sure the feeling of transporting across systems and smashing face first through a bubble camp is unreal, but honestly... player needs. :(

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 that t…

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…

Nothing and Everything Changes

I can mark the passage of time from Eve with Intuition's age. He turned four last month. Today, Corbexx sent me a chat on Steam and we spent hours chattering about this and that as if it was yesterday. That is friendship.

One of the things we noticed is that our NDA is about to expire. That and the leavings of several people left us gossiping up a storm. The NDA was never a good NDA but we chose to respect the spirit of it even if the letter of it had the strength of  wet tissue paper.

Life is fine. The husband got a promotion at the start of the year. I am up for one at the end of the month that will be a fascinating life change. We also got our rental property goals started. For any that wonder how much of a basement dweller I actually am. My husband has the entire basement of the new house.

I think of Eve quite often. For one, I have it in my reddit feed. I mostly skim the titles and skip the topics. The general mood has not changed even if the people saying it has.

I saw that …
