…Both alliances and corporations need to start thinking approaching life differently from their counterparts in high-sec, low-sec and null-sec. There are aspects of all of them that apply, but there some things that need to be thought through differently.
In continuation from last week, the goals and indeed needs of an alliance and or corporation are always going to be different from group to group, but there are some things that are unique to life in wormhole space.
From a previous life, I found a post about living in a wormhole that I wanted to resurrect both for posterity and for personal reasons. I have divided it up into parts and have posted my perspectives but am also always interested in what other people think.
I had something else in mind for today, but then there was this thing and it turned into a bigger thing. Before long it was a deal and well on its way to a Big Deal that had to be dealt with before other things also became deals.
So – in substitution of other more interesting and competent words, I am presenting a slightly modified version of one of EVE’s most under-utilized battlecruisers. Hope you enjoy.
Coming off a series of highlights this last couple weeks, it seemed like nothing could go wrong. In retrospect, I can honestly say that nothing did go wrong; however, it is my uncomfortable duty to report that what did happen was the horribly right outcome of a series of unfortunate events. They all compounded to make for a mess of any happy feelings, confident postures and providential oversight.
So in the last couple weeks we had managed to hunt some things down, clear out the Sleeper menace at home and abroad and get started on the Big Industrial Project. We have had a lot of fun and were enjoying a lot more activity than usual. I believe strongly that the overall participation level of the wormhole population has declined. This could be a direct result of lower wormhole populations, new content to explore, ennui with existing activities in wormholes and even sheer frustration with POS towers and the seemingly level of attention given to wormhole space by those to make changes without due consideration for the opinions of those who have chosen to make it their home.
This adventure starts with a Venture. The cute, little Outer Ring Excavations’ mining frigate introduced in the Retribution changes was conspicuously present on the directional scan the second time. The brief blip of an Anathema with the same ship name on the first scan led to the quick deduction that, having scanned the system, the pilot was off to mine something. [Such are the rapid leaps of intellect common in premiere wormhole pilots.] I also decided that it was my duty to shoot it as I have never shot a Venture before – nor had I even seen one.
From time to time, I have endeavoured to make changes to the site. From smaller changes like colours and themes, to larger changes like servers and softwares. Much like moving the furniture in a room or changing the paint on the walls, it is a chance for something new, fresh and hopefully enjoyable in the process. It also has its roots in my incurable sense of adventure. Finding answers to questions that start like, “What if…” and “How would it look…” often lead to even more changes. What starts out as, “I think I might like something lighter,” ends up with something lighter being an HTML5 rewrite or a radical shift from one CMS to another. I have never really written things for Our EVE with the intent of making money, making people happy or doing anything other than expressing myself and being another place to explore.
I have been doing a lot of thinking (which incidentally caused quite a few fires) about rationale and personal desires for this space, and I wanted to continue to explore. I am apologetic for taking so long to get around to it and make things different and difficult for those of you who actually read the pages and posts. I admit a certain amount of selfishness here. I will try to get some of the old stuff back, but will also try to post some new information as well. Either way, it will not be the virtual, verbal, frothing fire-hydrant that you find other places. Rather, the posting will be much more reserved and sedately paced.
While I hope you enjoy reading, I also hope you will bear with the inevitable changes and erratic thoughts.
