~or I'd KILL for Something Fun to DO...
Jester wrote up how he ran a site recently... first one he says he has run in a long time... and he was overall dissapointed. Well, I know the feeling. Tur is currently doing solo time in Amarr...
SYJ has deployed to NPC Null, which as those of you who know me know is something I will only consider doing the day that is the ONLY place left to fly in EvE... and on that day I will have to face the very real possibility of giving up EvE.
Which, personally, is where I feel CCP Seagull eventually wants to take us. The fall of the (stagnant uninteresting NPC) Empires to a day when ALL of New Eden is ruled by Empyreans... IE Null from corner to corner. My ONLY hope is that Anokis will remain a bastion of freedom for those who aren't willing to cow tow to the Man... as 'he' said, "...never have to be under the heel of nobody ever again. No matter how
long the arm of the Alliance(s) might get... we'll just get ourselves a
So, SYJ is in Null and HBHI kinda hit a few RL rocks in the road. We're a really small corp and the majority of us have simply not been on much at all... A few went to null w/ SYJ, a few dint... I even lost damn near a whole (!gasp!) month of SKILLING due to not loggin on enough to even play Skill-Q Online.
Anyway... I have been loggin in a bit more lately... it's just, there's nothing to DO. I have been soloing L3s in a .5 near Amarr ... well, I have been waffle stomping L3s inna .5 near Amarr actually. Inna active shield HAMgu it is like running L1's inna Typhoon... Target, Orbit, F1, F2, read blogs... it is more time murdering than killing.
And among the long list of Worse Parts of Missioning is the ISK really and truly sucks. I made 1.8m ISK for the last site I ran... "If" I L&S, which I dunt, call it 3m ISK per site avg... so a nights play might net me something on the order of 10m ISK for 3 mishes (more like 8 really)... sheesh.
After living the hi-life of a C6 Wormholer anything less than 300 to 600m ISK per an evenings playtime is simply just not worth the effort... it's like dropping back to minimum wage after making 100k a year...
The PvE in EvE really is horrible... even Sleepers... Yup, I said it... even Sleepers... with the right comp they are so predictable and rote in their tactics that even C6 sites could be a bore except you have to run them in fleet, with friends which made it tolerable... too much DPS and Ewar to solo even if you can multibox... at least as far as I am concerned.
On a side note, and a personal 'thing'... there has been much said against Ewar in EvE. Everyone knows 'everybody HATES' Ewar... yet, you all do realize Webs and Points, long and short, are Ewar right? And where would PvP be without them now?? but I digress...
PvE sucks... and it's all I have left to me ATM... and it's enough to drive a man to murder.
Fly wreckless and see you in the Sky... =/|)=
