Mile Marker V


I have completed the longest train I have ever done, followed by the previous longest train. I feel pretty good about it. A bit proud. There are always those that will say, "Oh you are only just getting that, come back when you've trained Titan Five for the 23rd time."

Whatever.

I'm happy.

Lately there has been idea tossing about getting rid of this skill and shortening that skill. I tend to disagree with them because I don't dislike the skill training program as it currently stands. It can be frustrating and fretful. And there is always the want of now, now, now. But, if we get it all now what happens to the warm, rich satiation of finishing a huge skill train?

This isn't the only one I am on.

My link alt is on her last specialization link, completing that training program. Chella has a 11 days left on Gallente Carrier V. I'll then start her on Amarr Carrier. My dreadnought alt is almost ready to take delivery of her ship. Even Sugar is chewing through level five skills at a steady enough pace.

I don't know what to do with all of myself. I say that in truth, not jest. On one side I have all of these abilities. On the other, I've not used them. I can technically tout myself as a capital pilot. I could market myself that way. "I fly things. Lots of things. Lots of really, really slow things!" But I am an unblooded one. I don't feel like a capital pilot. I just feel like me. Unsure and prone to over thinking things.

The capital training is all part of my toolbox. Chella can move my stuff. My JF alt employs most of my time. My dread alt will soon be able to burn in our monthly capital welp. It is a lot like my battleship abilities. When the FCs call for 'whateverthefuckcat' which is some battleship fleet or another that I can't keep straight and always check the forums to make sure I've undocked the proper thing, I can and do undock it and do what needs to be done with it. My enjoyment comes from filling that niche not being in the niche. The capital ships are like that too..

I also want a Rorqual. I don't need a Rorqual but along the way of all that training it wasn't hard to have my JF alt cross train into a Rorqual and give her a clone bay. Now I want one. Badly. With zero need to have it. But shiny.

Maybe toooooo shiny...

  1. And now? Maybe Jump Fuel Conservation 5. I assume you have JDC5 long ago.

    1. I already have it. JF V was the last bit.

      I guess T2 production.

  2. If you run out of reasonable things to train and have a slot (or a little used alt) on the account, train an Aeon pilot and sell it. It pays for the subscription and some extra.

  3. Know the feeling. I'm staring at command ship V and sentry drone V on the to-do list and still finding other stuff I'd rather train Lol

    1. Why do you hate me when I love you so much?

    2. To my shame, afterburner V is still sitting forgotten and alone in my training plans....

    3. Just claim you weren't aware of the changes they did last year that made it worthwhile to train to V

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…

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…

My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.
In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 
I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.
Since I logged …
