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

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…
