With a scan, scan here... and a scan scan there...

Look at what a good girl I am today! I remembered to save my Astero's fit so when I lose it I don't have to remember how to find my killmail for my fit. That led me to see that all of my fits were gone. I am kind of sad. Sure, most of them no longer work. They adulterated my Jaguar,  but they were mind and I feel oddly possessively annoyed.

A pit stop back at a station to dump my daily redemption stuff (I'm sure that this made people super mad whenever it happened,) and I was off to find a series of systems to scan for wormholes in.

I remember some of the basics. The lower the sec the higher quality/value the thingies I will find. Since I wanted to find tiny wormholes, I then promptly disconnected as I was docking because my computer rebooted. I wondered if I would come back in a pod but in fact, I did not.

The last task I should do as I seek a system is move my home station. It is still down in low sec areas I no longer have interest in. Then I was like, can't I do that in Jita somewhere?  The answer was yes. I went to reset my clone and that opened up a little cascade of memories.

Sugar's original school headquarters is Hulm. I didn't even remember. I created her and sent her down to Chella who was slogging away with the newbie corp I had joined down in Derelik back before the CEO ran off with the profits to buy a Navy Raven.

My clone set and a cluster of systems selected, I ventured into the unknown.

My ship seems to be more orange and purple.


(Record scratch. Several days IRL pass...)

I do enjoy not prioritizing my time playing Eve. I feel more in control of the process. I worked and played The Division 2 and groomed my dogs instead of playing Eve during my last set of days off. Today, I decided to give it a try.

With some repetition I stared at my keyboard and realized I had no idea what to do. I started pressing key combinations and I discovered that beams shoot out of your ships nose and butt when you hit dscan buttons now.  Visual reminders instead of hoping for the best, that is cute.

I hit my probe launchers button and realize I had no idea what to do. After a few, cautious key presses as if I had never touched a keyboard before, I remembered that stuff around my HUD is not just for how fast I am going to die. I have still forgotten all of my keyboard shortcuts. 

However, after a little bit I started remembering bits and pieces of how to scan. When I say bits and pieces, I mean bits and pieces.  Once I found my probe screen I remembered how to move them. Then it took me a bit to figure out how to scan. With nothing found in the next system I remembered how to change their range.

Two systems found. No anoms discovered and I am giving the dogs their bedtime potty break and off to bed to work another day.

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…

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…

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…
