Holy Shit, 1 Year

Uh, Hi... Sorry for any of the (1) of you that might follow this blog.  It's been forever and so much has gone on.  I am very interested in getting up to speed and have basically liquidated assets so that I can be mobile as I need to catch up with my PvP hero buddies.   I will certainly try to keep this blog updated but much has changed since I last posted.  The big one is a 2 year old kid but I am also a "boss" now in my work life; so even though I want to get back into EvE it's already a backseat hobby.

New Player Influx in EvE

It seems there is an ongoing (if exaggerated) influx of new players as the big titan-pocalypse landed right on a big expansion.  I am looking forward to seeing if some of these new players stick around; this will be a big test of the updates and changes CCP has put in place.  These new players won't be stepping into quite the same world that I once did, and I'm sure most of them will be glad for that.  But here's hoping EvE never loses it's hard edge, no matter how much of a cushion CCP tries to put on it.

Hoping I can go to Fanfest

Every year I get excited, hoping I can get away one year :)

B-R5RB and Can You Really Leave EvE?!?

  Well, as pretty much everyone has heard B-R5RB had quite the show this week.  The Mittani dot com EvE News 24 

  It just so happened that I had re-subbed my main account (Meatay) a few days prior so I was happily catching up on some EvE news when this broke out.  Unfortunately, having given away every single one of my worldly possessions and isk in EvE to aspiring players and my friends upon quitting, I was in no position to even go get myself killed in the fighting.  It looks like it will be a long road back to being able to fund anything fun in EvE for me but hopefully I still have some friends playing who can give me a hand.

  While patching my EvE client and catching up on all the news I missed, I did a little reading of my own blog through the years.  I find myself (sadly) a bit melancholy in looking back at all the events that have happened in my EvE life.  These days, many of the players I've spoken with are nowhere to be found, and some have unfortunately passed on.  However, EvE still holds a unique and very special place in my heart as the only real MMO I can stand; with the possible exception of DayZ if that counts as an MMO?

  Anyway, I thought I would recount some of my posts that somehow remain relevant, as well as a few I just like :)

So here goes:

-Sorry if any of those posts link to my website resources; I let the domain lapse so even though the resources are still there I need to re-sort the domain situation to fix them.

This is the end

  So, after beating around the bush for a while now I've finally come to the sad conclusion that this is the end of my EvE career.  I've started liquidating assets and before you ask, I'm donating them to my friends who will be using them to further fund PvP in the name of interesting null-sec.

  EvE is basically the only MMO I've ever played, and I cannot say that leaving isn't bitter-sweet.  As much as we gripe and complain day-to-day, I find myself fondly looking back on even the most mundane tasks which I completed in the company of good friends.  I don't use the term friend here lightly either; I feel that I have formed strong relationships that I will be sorry to let go.  Obviously I will attempt to text and speak to these guys regularly but as we all know, time moves on.  I am very glad to have played this crazy game for so long and I will miss it.

  I've decided I need to move on as my wife is expecting and I already felt like I devoted too much energy to EvE.  I appreciate all of the fun, drama, bitching, and every little thing you guys have done to enrich the EvE experience :)

And don't fly safe, ever...

Ship Modeling - Stolen Post :)

Sorry for the rip off from Poetic Stanziel but I wanted to play with the work done over at http://shipviewer.ericmartindale.com/ships and I thought I would start by using the embeded ship toy :)

Good Fights, and Avoiding Them

I was going to write something about this whole issue where fitting warp core stabs is apparently cheating at EvE and ruining everyone's fun.  Mind you, these are pirates who are complaining about having their sweet juicy kills taken away from them in most cases.  But Mabrick has put it much better than I could have: http://mabricksmumblings.blogspot.com/2013/03/the-art-of-gf.html
