Join my corp!

Such was the demand on twitter. I actually leaned back and blinked a bit.

Really? Wow. What a nice feeling. Sure, it was from a delusional person that liked me and forgot what a ninny I am. Also, my utter disconnect with my previous skills. It was still a nice feeling. And, without the CSM thing hanging over me again, I rediscovered what it is like to be sure an offer was about myself.

I do hate that suspicion that I developed. It made me shy away from any type of title in the final dredges of the CSM. That point where I walked away from Sniff, sent Sugar off to a little edge system and gave up undocking or playing. I curled up in my chain and sighed. How was I to tell who wanted me and who wanted the title? I'd had many, many offers that started with, "Come join corp X, we want a CSM in our corp." It was quite a sucky time and left me isolated when I had the most attention.

To channel Elsa again:

"The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen.
A kingdom of isolation,
and it looks like I'm the Queen."

Unfortunately, such situations leave scars. If you don't work scar tissue, it becomes stiff and painful. Such is much of the Sugar Kyle bit of me. 

One of my biggest problems with joining a corp is that I cannot shut up. The behavior of my corpmates matters. I'm unable to fall very far off of my moral high horse. 

So why don't I go to Eve Uni and Signal Cartel?

Rules. Oh rules. So useful. So important. They drive me bonkers. You see, I am a rule follower. If I went to them I'd have to do what they say. But I don't want to, so I don't. I love Mynxee and I'd looovveee to go to Signal but the credo... I'm don't want to follow it. But even as I type that I wonder if I don't or if I'm just allowing my own stubbornness to control me. I don't want to PvP ether. Of course war decs make other ventures hard.

Hmm.

Time to end the post early and think.

  1. It sounds like you might need to start your own corp, for which you can set the moral standards. I'm sure there are sufficient people that would appreciate an honourable place to live that you'd have enough minions to command. =)

  2. You would be welcome in Signal Cartel any time. The Credo adds a layer of complexity to EVE Online, true enough -- but it also enables one of the game's best communities to flourish. I know there is no place I'd rather be!

  3. Can you not alt in some of them, follow the rules with THAT situation and fly another toon when not in the mood for restrictions?

  4. If your concerned about wardecs just stay NPC forever.

    Otherwise personal corps with few members, which don't hang out in trade or mission hubs all day - and who don't make annoying comments in local drawing attention, don't get many wardecs.

    Both NRDS and NBSI groups have "rules." (NPSI only exists during the fleet, following the FC's "rules," after its over you're back where you came from.) Many groups would welcome you on their ops, even if "NPC" corp, if you had a mind to join them on that day.

    1. I am not concerned about war decs. I simply find them annoying. If I want to do something like the epic arcs on Sugar for instance, a war dec is annoying and a permadeced corp is even more so. High sec is a part of Eve I don't really know.

      I know everyone has rules. I don't mind rules. However, I pour a lot of myself into my corp. Maybe to much. At the same time, my personality is annoyed by being told I cannot do things. I don't even want to do them. I just don't want to be told that I cannot. This does not extend into a useless tangent about how society doesn't allow me to murder or steal from people. In Eve, being told I cannot do valid game play isn't something that I enjoy.

  5. Well of course, the door is always open here to you but I understand perfectly if you fear it might not be a fit. Sometimes it's hard to land in just the right spot in EVE. You certainly could check us out on an alt and decide about Sugar later. I don't even need to know who it is :)

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…

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.
In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 
I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.
Since I logged …
