Thankfully, Nothing is Happening

"Sugar, you are so serious!"

I've been accused of said seriousness a few times in the last week. It is a true thing. I am serious. I take questions serious. I take promises seriously. I play serious internet spaceships, what can I say? I'm a pretty serious person.

I am also a very tired person. I realized that my mind was a bit empty of what I'd consider interesting enough topics to write about. I've spent the bulk of the week very focused and engaged. I'm a little low in the ways of energy. It is something that I find amusing. I'm to tired of think of new things. I'm still processing to many other things in the back of my mind.

I pull my writing from my day to day experiences. When ones week is consumed by only one thing that tends to limit everything else. Somewhere under there, what else have I been doing? I know I was busy but was I productively busy? Does it matter? Probably not. Mostly, now, I'm curled up and unwinding.

In other, random things. My Eve Uni talk is tomorrow instead of Sunday. I mixed my dates up a bit but I figure it doesn't really matter. Also, my Eve Vegas stuff is all together. They have started to announce prizes from the drawings as well as the in game items that come along with a ticket or the stream.


I will never fly it. It will sit in a hangar somewhere (probably Jita) and be beautiful forever.

  1. This week was surely long for you CSM folks. But hey, it ended up with a huge kill, so the effort was well spent.

  3. So if that shit somer was doing was rmt are u guys going after tmc next? Paying people to write articles and getting ad revenue is just as much rmt as buying a plex off ppl for 50mil over jita.

    1. Illicit (that is, against the EULA and CCP will come after you) RMT occurs when person A pays person B money and person B pays person A ISK. Somer had a bit of extra complexity, but finally, he was getting money and the person who sent him money got ISK.

      TMC is paying person C in ISK to write about EVE, then making money off ad impressions made by persons D, E, F and G who come to read the writing. There's no quid pro quo there. There is a technical form of RMT, in that writing has real world value, but CCP has long tolerated ISK for content. Cold, hard cash has an observable corrupting influence on games. Writers and artists have an observable beneficial effect.

      In other words, don't hold your breath.

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
