Fondness and change

I learned about the Endurance today. What a cute ship. Man, it tempts me to drop clones into wormholes. If I do undock, I should do wild and crazy things such as go against the rules of things. I should also do them with Sugar and try to beat out the embarrassment and avoidance that is so much a part of myself.

(Gotta check if Sugar has scanning skills...)

Anyway, the Endurance. How cute. Oh yeah and skins. So many now, huh? The Blood Raider skin was disappointing. To little splatter pattern. But, it led me to look at the Ore skins in general and that is when I discovered two things.

The Noctis is now Ore yellow and there are purple spaceships in Eve.


So I looked in the store and giggled because the Amarr Imperial skin makes the Avatar look like its face has been dipped in soot in the store image. It seems like purple is an industrial thing. (big raspberry to that) The purple Orca is kinda tempting.

  1. Purple was supposed to pink - a thing CCP did for breast cancer awareness. See Evehermit's Not Really Pink: https://evehermit.wordpress.com/2016/10/15/not-really-pink/

  2. Some of my EVE friends kid me about much I like the prospect and endurance. I have used the endurance quite a lot as a mini hauler for ore, ice, and gas when hauling those items through dangerous space because it is very hard to catch one with a gatecamp and with ore/ice compression available in so many places now it can actually haul quite a bit of raw product for its size. They are great little ships, a must have for industrialists!

  3. Why WH with Endurance?
    The great advantage of Endurance is ice mining, which you can only do in shattered WH. ALso endurance cannot use Covert Ops Cloak. Imoho prospect is better for WH use.
    Using WH to jump around New Eden ice mining is an option tho, Thera sounds like a good idea then.
    Best Regards

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…

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…

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 that t…
