Rolling in Plans

Respect is one of those interesting words that is much larger than its physical volume. Composed of seven letters, it is an average word composed of many of the most common characters in the English Alphabet. Yet, entire civilizations have risen because of it, religions have been founded, and life and death created over it. Being much larger then it is, it seems odd that respect is so easily understood. It is not given as much as it is wanted. It highly desired but hard to obtain. It is malleable in form as well. Respect is quite interesting. I believe that many people seek it. One does not have to be liked to be respected. It does not mean praise. It is a powerful word.

You are not supposed to tell people that you do things other than PvP and that you PvP. I've been told that people may not respect you. I've never been overly good at remember what I am and am not supposed to do. I did PvP if that helps. I was out in fleets over the weekend and I shot stuff and everything.

My capital ship building partner wandered back, using his ten free days given to him. This freed up some of the hull blueprints I've wanted access to and I've been gleefully making copies. The changes in Crius of freeing up the ability to copy has changed my world. Knowing I was heading somewhat this way once Crius was released, I've been steadily making copies for a few months now. With capital ship components that is and is not a lot of copies.

It is a lot of copies because its hoards and delicious hoards of them. However, it isn't super impressive because capital stuff takes a while to copy. But, copies. Copies! All mine! Ahahhahahahahahahahaha!

Why copies? For personal use. We have stuff we build together, but he has been away from the game so I've been making copies for myself. The stuff we build together is neat and organized and sells properly bringing in a steady income. When I am released on my own I squeal in delight and roll about in my blue prints going, "Ahahahaha building stuff!!" I then run off and buy things while cackling gleefully. I've been using downtime, productively to

I need an Archon for Chella. In the new world of gate jumping carriers, I suspect I'm going to need more than one Archon for Chella. I think that we will start seeing carriers and dreads treated more like bigger ships to use doing stuff now that they can go through gates. I am reminded of my words during the veteran player retention at the summer summit, when I went into how vets want to use their big toys (capitals) to do things.

I've never had a particular desire to take a carrier into battle. In the back of my mind, I debate how expensive the damn thing is. But, its become part of my life. I have the character trained into these skills. I still tend to sit there and think that these are not activities for me to do.

But, what are activities for me to do? I still have my first Daredevil. I've never flown it. I somehow settled that I could fly T2 frigates but not pirate frigates. Now I'm planning to not just build a singular Archon for a project but to get myself set up to replace my Archon after I lose it.  It should be fun.

  1. "My capital ship building partner wandered back, using his ten free days given to him."

    Ten free days? What is this, some incentive given to inactive players? If so, I'd like to know how to get in on that, I have a few friends who could benefit from it.

    "I sequel in delight and roll about in my blue prints"

    I'll assume you meant "squeal," but if not, then I suppose two Sugars would be a good thing. ;)

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

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

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f
