CSMX - Post #27

It has been a busy week. I was amused, around Tuesday, when people speculated that there would not be anything new until after the summit. The opposite was true. CCP was trying to get things released before the summit so that we could discuss them without redacting every other line. The summit isn't about announcing new releases nor is it about hiding things from players. It is about feedback and face time for that feedback. Getting this stuff out to you now let's us have a discussion that you all have just feed information into and makes it easier to share it in the minutes. That, I approve of.

Fleet Warp Change Delay - This is going to a back burner for right now. While I support fleet warp changes in the macro usage that a pilot should fly their ships, I did not want to release a version that took away from game play. Change is fine but in change we should not lose the ability to work together in a swift way.

Some Sov Changes - Somewhere in all of the changes since Aegis, I've had some good talks with people over what they do and do not like. Most of these talks have come from people more used to low sec and not established sov holders. Those opinions I have shared. However, to give the null sec guys credit, they are all over it.

And a fatigue change as well - While the fatigue soundboard was an utter failure the topic was not dropped. I had never agreed with the 30 day cap from the announcement of the changes. This is a step. One, I hope, of several, as we look at this mechanic over the next few months.

The battlecruiser changes are here - I was listening to people lament the lack of battlecruiser changes earlier in the week and had to bite my tongue. I'm not the fitting guru so your opinions about these changes are very important to me. I was around for the end of the battlecruiser era. I'd like to see them as a regular ship choice instead of a sigh. I've been told that some newer players, never having experienced the battlecruisers beforehand, don't care so the changes are fine.

We're also doing some testing of the map and discussing features. Go look at it. While you are doing that the brain in a box mass test is going to be next week as well. Participate if you can. And while you are debating scanning and participating in mass tests you can take a moment to look at multibuy which is now active on Sisi.

CCP Leeloo has been working on a CSM portal. She announced it on Monday. In the past, the CSM has mostly tried to keep up with the CSM. My blog, for instance, has a side bar with the blogs of the other members of the CSM. I only have it because I am on the CSM and I will remove it when I leave. However, not all CSM blog. They tweet, they use the forums, and they use reddit. The goal of the portal is to try to scoop up all of that communication and make it easier for people to find. I've been getting a good bit of traffic from it. I hope it is working and people find it useful.

The goal is to have the minutes out the day after each session as was done in January. I hope that this goes well and I will be putting my non-meeting time into working on this goal. I expect I'll write about my exciting adventures of being in meetings and working on the minutes to keep everyone titillated. I will also be available in most of my normal ways. Mails are very good. They are easier to work through right before a meeting.

Maybe one day!

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

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

What are all of these buttons for?

My snooty villager, Naomi, wants to move out. I picked her because she is a blue cow with some wild makeup but we have not really bonded like I have with Savannah and Mitzi... oh wait yeah wrong game. So, my clan is almost finished the second step of the Manhunt in Division 2. We just have one more zone to clear and then we can hunt down the secondary target to reveal the next... err wait, waaaaaiittt... Sorry about that. Resetting things. What do I want to do? That has been my problem for a while now. If I play Eve, what do I want to do in Eve? While I did PvP it was never my draw. The old PvE sucks. The new PvE may be okay but do I want to do it? Who am I? What am I? And do I need to be unique and interesting? I think that I may want to look in small wormholes and try a exciting, fragile life. With some of the ships that are available I can, perhaps, have an interesting life where I may or may not fall prey to someone but it does not have to define what
