Declarations of War #94

I was on Declarations of War's latest episode (#94) and I was quite the terrible guest. They are nice about it, but I was a bad guest. I did discover some things about myself:

-I'm only good at talking when I have a topic. Having a topic is easy enough in Eve. The problem is that I'm not good at more, casual chatter. I believe that I talk to much and find myself uncomfortable with talking without a defined goal, such as sharing a recipe.

-I hate speculating. I find that I have nothing to say when it comes to guessing what people may do. I don't know. I want to watch and observe until I do know. But, if you ask me what I think they will do I'll flounder.

-Attached to speculating comes the fact that I am an observer. I'm a lean back and watch the events go by. I'm not a major player in the greater movements in game play. The episode was very null sec focused and I realize that for everything I have learned I find myself more and more ignorant of what null sec life is like. I cannot speculate for it is unknown.

-I'm attracted to small details.

In general, I make for bad radio. I'm okay with that. I was amused at how terrible I was. Mix it with my general lack of humor and I'm a terrible and boring guest. I'm told that off the cuff stuff gives you are more honest reading. Well, the honest truth is that I'm boring. :P

I did apologize. It was nice to be invited. I wish I had been more... *waves arms* stuff.

  2. You weren't terrible. You chimed in when you had something to say and when you did it was worth listening to. As long as you're not the anchor.that's fine.

    There's an increasing trend in the Eve media to talk about uninteresting nonsense (like in the Meta show where they often talk for 10 minutes without saying anything about Eve) so I honestly wish there were more guests like you and less Eve extroverts who think the most trivial thing they do is interesting.

  3. To be fair, if they wanted to discuss null sec then they should have picked guests that can speak to that area of the game. It would have been worse to have someone who obviously doesn't know that aspect of the game speaking about it authoritatively. No one likes when someone does that.

    Disclaimer: I didn't listen, these are just my thoughts based on what you said.

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
