CSM9 - Day 239

Things were rather slow making for a short update. However a few things did slip in before Christmas slowed everything to a halt.

On Tuesday, CCP Rise posted the first major edit to the recon rebalance thread which has passed 100 pages. In this revision the Pilgrim gets tweaked for neut range and strength, the resists are dropped to increase the general fragility, and the dscan immunity is staying. This has calmed some and upset others who wanted recons to have a viable, tanking, core fleet role.

Also, on Tuesday a module rebalance dev blog was posted. This was noted by CCP Seagull in her Proteus overview. I’d not seen any of the module rebalancing and a lot of this hits me in my Jaguar fit. CCP has taken a step back with the renaming schemes and is trying to preserve some of the creativity of the names. Making everything bland and tasteless makes sense in a way but it is boring. Science Fiction is supposed to be fun and creative and thoughtful and exciting. It looks like a few new modules are being added to the Ore and Syndicate loyalty point stores. Improving NPC nullsec LP stores and LP stores has been something that has been pushed for. The feedback thread is here.

While it is not busy, I’ve still found ample CSM things to do with my time. The summit is in a few weeks. I’ve sat down over the last few days and gone through my notes and my mailbox to fill out my From the Players to CCP document sections. These are questions, ideas, and concerns that come to me. I gather them up and the ones that I cannot get answered over time come with me to the Summit. I organize these by session and when they go, “Anything else?” I can whip out my notebook and make sure that I’ve touched on everything.

I’ve requested a few sessions and I think I will make another request or two. I’d like to check in the general health of low sec. I’d like to see how the capital changes are going. I want to talk about fighter assist. I really want to sit down with the UI team on points. I’d love to find someone to listen to some market and contract points and cleanup because that really did not get touched on last time. All I can do is prepare and do my best to get all of it on the table.

My CSMX interview with Cap Stable should be next weekend. The weekend after I’ll hold my monthly talk. That should get everything caught up by the time the summit starts.

  1. The issue I have with ORE is that it is essentially for the industrialist. The missions are L4 mining missions. (which I have done on Sisi). I doubt these are even run by anybody in the game. (some stats for confirming this?). I think adding the LP available into hi-sec would increase a consumption of ORE faction goods as well as a decent isk sink. If Sisters and Thukker are available, then why not ORE?

    1. I run L4 mining missions, but only in low sec. I like the ice mining and gas harvesting ones. The ore mining ones don't pay out well considering the length of time it takes.

      I should probably try to find out which skill hardwiring sells the best. The LP isn't bad. And yes, easier access to ORE would be nice. I should try to ninja mine some day.

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that 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…

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 that t…
