The week started with a polite poke from Tikktokk that the micro jump drive destroyer's were not working in low sec on Sisi. That news cascaded through the game. Theories abounded. Some cheered. Others booed. I went and poked Team Size Matters and asked them if there had been a change and if there had been can we open up discussion about it. While it was hard to not grip my pitckfork and chant with burning torches around the tar soaked hut.
CCP Rise came forward with clarification that they are not banning the MJFG from low sec. That error has been corrected.We are not banning MJFGs from low sec, not sure how that happened, will find out and fix asap. Sorry for the false alarm #tweetfleet— CCP Rise (@CCP_Rise) January 21, 2016
Project Discovery has also gone live on the test server. I was introduced to the idea at Fanfest and told agreed that it was amazing and perfect for Eve's playerbase.
Meanwhile, on Twitter CCP Fozzie announced that they are doing playtests of structures.
People got excited and asked a lot of questions. CCP Fozzie had few answers other then saying that this was an early play test.Internal playtest update: XL citadel successfully reinforced. We entered the field with 41 faction fit dreads, left with 26.— CCP Fozzie (@CCP_Fozzie) January 21, 2016
It is nice to see that Structures are progressed to this point. It is something I'll be able to make that I wanted to see. I won't be seeing the changes to corporations and alliances it seems. Structures was a nice one and its been pleasant to be a part of their conception.
Skill Trading is going right ahead. I still see big divides between liking it and disliking it. I've talked with a lot of people about this. I've seen points on all sides. I don't consider myself neutral but I am fair enough to bring all sides to the table. None of that maters because it is going to happen. It is oddly, one of the things I am most unhappy about in Eve's future. I'm trying to sit back and wait to see what happens and ignore the utter distaste I have for this change to the game until I see what happens. I don't think I'm a big enough person to do that but I'll continue to try. I appreciate everyone who has participated in the discussion and given me new viewpoints.
While not a CSM thing the storyline is moving along with some type of player assisted built Citadel. I won't pretend to know what is going on with it. I support the storyline side of the game. I think its healthy and important even if I don't participate in it. Some may find it an interesting venture to look into so I add it on.
2016 seems to be getting started. The election season for CSMIX is underway. Good luck to those running. I hope they enjoy the election season more than I did. It is very nice not to be involved in any of that.
