Summer is barely underway and I've already started to notice a downturn in activity in New Eden. This happens almost every year as students head home/abroad and weekend days are spent outside. I have certainly felt it myself as I have been on vacation or outside instead of in game for at least the past week. This really provides a nice downtime to help stem the burnout many people are probably reaching at this point, especially given the hectic year it has been for some alliances.
Personally I hope to spend the summer with at least a toe in the waters of New Eden, even if I don't log in anywhere near as much as I normally would. Hopefully this will be a good time to tick off some of those extremely long skill training paths that are so hard to start when you are logging in more often. Perhaps I will have my fully maxed out T2 guns for all races by the end of the summer? In reality I'm sure I'll be sidetracked by a shiny new skill (as I always am) and be only a little closer to my plans.
I do certainly plan to enjoy my summer though with as much EvE as I can fit in. For those of you who won't be on until the days get short again, fly safe!
