Skill Points when you need them

Sugar has 125 million skillpoints. I stopped celebrating my skillpoint achivements with the skill point changes. I was rather bitter about them. Now, a bit further removed I don't disagree with them as much but I do not like them. However, I can admit that I felt their lure.

When fitting my most amazing NOW CLOAKING WHEN WARPED Stratios the other day I put in the t2 mid-slot analyzer thingy. I couldn't fit it. My first reaction was, "How could this be?" then I remembered that Sugar was never my scanning character. There are holes in her training.

Muttering, I opened the requirements tab of the analyzer and saw that it was a level 5 requirement. I was at level 4. It would be 4 days to train. That went against my do stuff now mindset. I found myself about to give in and buy skillpoints when I realized there had been another line when I looked at the requirements.

I had forgotten a very simple thing. I had unallocated skillpoints. I have collected them, passively, over the last few years. I never used them casually and now I had a million allocated skill points and I needed 600k.

Instant gratification tastes pretty damn good.

  1. Did you go fly your Strat afterwards and use that Analyzer to do some exploration? I blew up my exploration strat this weekend down in Aridia trying to complete a Superior Sleeper Cache. Would love to hear what you are using your Strat for nowadays. Looking forward to reading about it! (Hopefully you may write it up)

  2. These guys are absolutely amazing, and you'd be crazy to party anywhere else in the city. I would highly recommend these event venues to anyone. It's elegant, affordable, and delicious. You really get bang for your buck there! And the service is top-notch.

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…
