~or “Is EVE Dying, or is it Just Me?”
Its summer and EVE is Dead. The usual summer blues or “Damn There’s Really A World Outside??” has hit and I, like so many, are not loggin in nearly as much due to conflicts with things like boating, cookouts, sittin round the firepit of an evening, swimming, wimmen in bikinis!!!, more swimming (due to wimmen in bikinis!!!), BBQs, travelin to visit fambly, mass consumption of alcoholic beverages (outside for a change), fambly travelin to visit us, more mass consumption… you know… :summertime: and this is all normal this time of year… even basically all of CCP goes on vaca for most of the summer it often seems. Things just slow down when it gets hot.
For my part, as re EVE, I have been keeping PI running, a good semi-passive ISK faucet and an easy 30 mins to hour of playtime. I rarely see anyone else on either, Lethal is on occasionally, but usually he says he’s just doing PI also. I would like to do some ratting in lowsec, the Clone tags and Mordu BPCs make it very worthwhile, but I am loath do go solo, much prefer when a few of us are on and I can call for, or get called in as, backup if PvP occurs.
But, all in all, things have as usual gotten quiet and a bit laid back as the days grew longer and hotter… I’m still here, still skim the blogs each day… though I will admit with less enthusiasm than I used to, I really do miss Jester’s posts… I basically turn to Sugar Kyle for my daily fix now but I find there is a lot less cross talk and cross posting now that the Roboblogger has gone dark… real shame there IMHO.
I can’t speak for Ripard, only for myself but the EVE blogshere has become a lot less interesting over all, I wonder if he truly realized what an effect he actually had on us all.
Fly Wreckless and see you in the Sky =/|)=
