Eve Vegas 2015 - Pub Crawl

Today, CCP announced the tickets are opened for the Eve Vegas Pub Crawl. The Pub Crawl is one of those things that seems to change and mutate each year. The general idea is that people wander from bar to bar consuming some set number of drinks and socialize some how.

I've attended this once for Eve Vegas 2013. It was different but I was bored, lonely, and my shoe broke so I got a cab and went home early. I didn't participate in 2014. Now, its 2015 and I had no intention of participating until the News Article today about the Pub Crawl.

They are more having an open bar party down town at an arcade bar type thing. It will be exclusive to Eve Players for a three hour period with an open bar that looks like it will have juice and soda, not just alcohol.

On one hand it is kind of like paying for an exclusive drinking party of Eve players. On the other hand, its an organized social time and that went very well last year and I had a lot of good CSM discussions with people. Unlike my first two Eve Vegas' trips, my third one was filled with socialization. I expect that will happen this time around too.

Of course, its a hundred dollars. That is what has stopped me from pressing that particular button. I'll think about it for a few days. At the worst, it is sold out before my decision is made.

  1. If you go, I'll go. We can wallflower together.

  2. The juice and soda of which you speak are known as mixers. But hey, you don't wanna miss the bus ride down. The bus ride back might be sketchy though. lol

  3. I bought tickets because i don;t drink, at all, i hate the crap. So the pub crawl was always a 'walk around with a sea of drunken idiots... yea no thanks' at least this way if people get too drunk for my taste i can play video games and ignore them. (my dad was a drunk, so i really dislike being around plastered people [no offense to anyone btw])

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

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…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…
