The Song of Stuff

I am going to be bluntly honest.

I am one of those people who are fond of their stuff.

I'm not ashamed.

I like it.

It's mine.

I have most of my income tied up in my assets. I believe that is familiar for the bulk of Eve. A few weeks ago, Silver was liquidating assets and commenting that he finds it pleasant. I looked at my asset list, something that is becoming mildly horrifying and full of lag and disagreed.

On Thursday, I moved back to Isto a few days before the official move op. I knew that I would be working the weekend. With the move planned, roughly, for Saturday the chances of it being done during my work hours where quite high. I didn't want to spend the evening trying to catch cyno chains during one of the games busiest days. I packed up my stuff, solicited Kaeda for a cyno in Isto. With the death of cynos and the time to have small funerals over their wrecks it took about an hour to empty Nalvula.

Sugar needs to improve her cyno skills. It was a pain getting her set up to run the cyno. She has the skill. All of my in space characters do. But, she needs cyno to four.  It is at one. I am somewhat embarrassed for an unknown reason. Still, it took three trips to get me home. It took five to head out. I came back with a few things I didn't leave with (Talos and Prophecy). I also came back with many fewer Jaguars than I left with. I was down to my last one.

Now I am back home with all of my stuff. My stuff does not include spare implants. I will need to buy a new set due to a particular hot drop my first weekend in Nalvula. I still have plenty of LP and will pick up a set as soon as I remember. Of course, it is not optimal. I'll do it anyway. At the rate of my forum responses, that may not be till Monday. Even after being gone for a month, somehow my Isto hangar for Sugar has climbed in value. It is around 12 billion in hulls now. I swear I am losing them faster than I am acquiring them but I am starting to wonder. Plus, Silver and Altaen and their praise for liquidation has made me start to consider thinning out my hulls.

I made a lot of ships for Odyssey. Battleships were going to gain a bump in mineral cost. i wanted to avoid that and felt clever by spending a bit of time and ISK building myself a set of battleships I was interested in. Fast forward eight months and I have undocked a battleship around six times. Plus their warp speed has made the boys give up Battleship Sundays.

Maybe its time to ship some of them off to a trade hub. I did sell one to Ren, but I don't need nine Armageddons and three Apocs and this random stack of Megathrons. Well, I'll keep the Megas and the Tempests but thin down the rest of the herd.

I also have a Rawrcat fleet to plan. It would be a good transference of ISK from battleships to Jaguars.

Additional: On Friday, amid everything else, I did a interview with Med Lacroix. It's my first time being interviewed but he held my hand and we chatted about PvE and Newbies. It's fifty minutes of my rambling (while trying not to cough and often failing). Being interviewed is pretty nerve wrecking, I will admit. For those that wish to listen:

P.S. In this interview there is a discussion about "stuff after the tutorial missions". When talking I was just dredging around my brain and I didn't give proper credit to Chirality Tisteloin because we had that discussion together.

  4. I listened to the interview. You did not sound flustered, which is good. Nor did I notice any coughing. You were cogent pretty much all of the time. I did not notice any substantial rambling. You uptalked too much for my taste, but then I am a language Nazi and any uptalking rubs me wrong. In general, you did great.

    One thing I hope you are clear on, is that the role of the CSM is not in any sense legislative. It's an advisory panel with (as far as I can tell) very little actual influence on CCP. The whole interview was suffused with the general idea that the CSM will go unto CCP and tell them what to do, and that they'll listen. This is not how it works. A lot of that is the interviewer's fault. And I suppose promising the moon may be necessary in democratic politics. Still, as a realistic voter, I would have appreciated it if you'd made clear to the guy that while you think that CCP should make changes X, Y, and Z, for the most part that's not what the CSM does.

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

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 th

Maybe one day!

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
