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 in, I went to fill my skill queue. I still havent learned my T3s to V. Stubbornness for the sake of it. However, I realize that I don't have the T3D installed so I went about and took care of that. My Eve habit sare not fully dead. I made sure not to blindly buy things and check my zeroes. 

The advent of skill injections sucked the joy of training from me. I find that I sit upon a stubborn little hill. One where I ignore skill injections while understanding that my habits of training and time are from an era past. I do miss those little milestones and the joy that came with them.

But things change and so does CCP. I was sent a few articles and dipped my toe into the edge of the discussion over CCP being sold. I didn't dip far. Really up to my nail polish and that was about it.

I do admit, I am glad I am not on the CSM with that discussion. I will also say that I am not surprised. Instead, I chuckled. I hate being right about some things. I wish I had been surprised instead.  But the sale has happened and I will see if my predictions come true. I have made the ones that I hope happen and the ones that I believe will happen.

  1. I think a lot of older players from generations past still run their skill queues as we always have. I have used injectors on my alts or in a real at the minute crisis to pull sp from my main and sell it for isk to grab a ship to take to a fleet or distribute the sp to a low sp alt with no penalty to get a job done quickly but I am no less satisfied when those long awaited level 5s click over to "done" :)
    I guess it is all perspective.
    To me personally SI are just another tool that I can use if needed in a pinch when otherwise I would of just been straight up SOL.

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
