The most current ending

My fansite was turned off at some point. I do not take offense. I was(am?) inactive after all. I don't pepper the darkness with my random thoughts with quite the energy that I once did. I find myself pondering what to do. Do I live a life of an unsubscribed account? One where I can chatter and prattle but do almost nothing? Or, do I maintain a habit that I am not really using at this time?

It leaves a question that will eventually be answered.

While I pondered this utterly deep thought, I saw someone ask about bounties. Ah, bounties. How they have not changed while I had my eyes closed. The question was, "What bounty amount does there need to be to get people to pay attention to it?"

While eleventy billion is amusing to say, it doesn't answer the question. Down in the depths of my skull I pulled up the general answer about bounties and their payouts. I then went looking for a bounty payout and found that they had long ago vanished under the weight of war declarations and structure notifications during my time in Snuffbox.

Oh, PvP. It's been a long while since I met you.

  1. I don't think CCP or players in general have figured out a better bounty system, that wouldn't be abused by Alts or friends cashing it out. As you suggest, wardecs seem a bigger mess, and many overhaul ideas have been proposed.

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

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

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
