Amusing Struggles

The sensible and productive thing to do would be to go look at developer blogs and figure out changes. That has little appeal and feels to serious for my current low level interest in things.

I like the new character sheet windows. I made some assumptions about how things would work. I assumed I could still drag skills around and adjust my windows. I was correct. I assumed that I could drag skills and scroll. That worked too. I should see if I can detach the training queue but that seems like more work then it is worth right now when I have such amazing plans.

Someone, that I will assume is me, decided to fill Sugar's skill queue. I say good job to her. Sugar has learned all sorts of random things that I have  no interest in. However, that has opened up her path to learn some scanning skills. Finally. After five or six years.

For years, scanning skills where the privy of two of my other accounts. I diversified early and seriously. Sugar was serious spaceship pew pew. Today, I cheerfully plugged in Archaeology levels 2-4. I'll slot in the other scanning things and set Sugar off in a life of doing something or another.

Maybe.

It is a thought. One that is followed by another one.

Sugar has never managed my Eve life. I've always had that safely tucked away on alternate accounts. She owns little liquid ISK to avoid scams. She owns only combat ships to avoid theft or mistakes. She has only spaceship skills because le pew le pew pew. And for a moment I found myself regretting that I couldn't just tool Sugar around on a new adventure because she wasn't skilled properly.

The weight of habit is fascinating. The drag of time. I worked so hard to accumulate things in the game and now they swirl around my feet and bog down my thoughts. I keep feeling as if I must do something that involves them because they are there. Then I remember that I don't have to! I can ignore my accumulated wealth until I figure out what I want to do with it. Or not or fall back into the void of space.. or just continue to give people outdated advice.

  1. Someone said once that EVE is like a beach. :-) Enjoy your time in the sand, taking time to appreciate the beauty of the land behind you and the ocean before you. Hike or swim at your leisure. Take all the time you need. There's no rush.

    Have a great day!

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 th

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

CSM9 - Day 140

The week has been the Summer Summit for CSM9. That did not mean that the world stopped for us. Things in Eve moved forward because we have the Oceanas release coming on the 22nd. CCP Fozzie has released a small interceptor tweak . Interdictors are also being retouched for fine detailing. The thread about it is up. This is not a rebalance where the ships gain complete new roles and identities. This is focused on fine tuning. I have spoken up about the fact that the situation where Titans were being bumped out of POS shields was not acceptable to me. I’ve voiced my disagreement as have other players. CCP Fozzie has posted changes to cyno usage outside of POS force fields . I am not fully happy with this change. I am happy that it will stop the Titan bumping issue. I am not happy with not being able to light cynos on shields. I feel that it will negatively affect tackling ships hugging force fields and I have expressed that. The topic came up in one of our Summit Meetings with CCP Fo
