Double Take

I found myself so surprised at what I saw that I almost forgot tot take a screen shot.


A Bowhead in the flesh. The first time I passed it as my Viator landed on the gate I was like, "What is that?" Slowly, my mind caught up to me and I squealed and tried to flip screens fast enough to nab a screenshot but I was to late and jumped.

My mind caught up with me and I realized that it was auto-piloting. Quickly, I cloaked on the other side and went to look at it when it came through. It spawned 38k off of me but 'look at' did not work when I was cloaked. Huh. I don't remember that. I will test it.

Then it warped. I warped to. But, I was in a Viator and landed before it. Meh. The gate was clear and I figured I could keep and eye out for trouble and wait for it to arrive. As I did so I noticed a fleet of military rank symbols land on the gate.


A fleet of Golem landed and started to jump through. Huh. I have no idea what they are for but there they were. So, I took their picture too. Then I waited for the Bowhead to land and this time look at worked because I wasn't cloaked (I guess?) and I got the above picture.

The things that ones sees in high sec. What a crazy place.

  1. With that sort of flotilla, it would be the immigration of Incursion pilots moving to the next area of Sansha site. It is a contributing reason to my choice of Logistics for those (biannual) times I join a fleet.

  2. I think that was me...I saw a brief bit of text "Wandering Rose", before it disappeared with the firing of a gate. Confirmed incursion migration.

  3. That's my favorite thing about high sec: people can more or less fly whatever they want to, so they do, so you see all kinds of interesting stuff.

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…
