A Short Thought: The Nerf Bat

Does anyone else wonder what the nerf bat looks like?

I was reading some posts and the original poster was most certainly wielding one with loving care as they wrote their post on how to fix Eve. And I thought, "Wow. Where did they get that nerf bat from? It doesn't look a damn thing like mine." It made me realize that must be a pretty common thought that people have.

Maybe there are various styles.

  • Feather - A light nerf bat. This one is for the delicate touch such as nipping one drone off of a ship.
  • Steel - This nerf bat is melded of two elemental objects and stronger than ether. It can reinforce concrete decisions.
  • Sledge hammer - This nerf bat is used to redo entire concepts.
  • Wrecking ball - Rebuild and restart. This nerf bat does it all without a pause.
  • Tickler - This leaves you giggling and quivering, not quite sure about the nerf but not able to resist it ether.
I'm sure I've missed some, but there has to be a few types considering the usage. Now, there is a change that some people are just really, really good with theirs and can craft delicate nerfings where others would simple delete the entire racial ship type. But I don't know.

  1. There's also the Wiffle Bat. It makes a nice Swoosh sound as it completely misses the object it's trying to nerf, sometimes even buffing it on accident.

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

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

CSM9 - Day 140

The week has been the Summer Summit for CSM9. That did not mean that the world stopped for us. Things in Eve moved forward because we have the Oceanas release coming on the 22nd. CCP Fozzie has released a small interceptor tweak . Interdictors are also being retouched for fine detailing. The thread about it is up. This is not a rebalance where the ships gain complete new roles and identities. This is focused on fine tuning. I have spoken up about the fact that the situation where Titans were being bumped out of POS shields was not acceptable to me. I’ve voiced my disagreement as have other players. CCP Fozzie has posted changes to cyno usage outside of POS force fields . I am not fully happy with this change. I am happy that it will stop the Titan bumping issue. I am not happy with not being able to light cynos on shields. I feel that it will negatively affect tackling ships hugging force fields and I have expressed that. The topic came up in one of our Summit Meetings with CCP Fo
