2010 - The Year That Will Be

Welcome to the fourteenth installment of the EVE Blog Banter, the monthly EVE Online blogging extravaganza created by CrazyKinux. The EVE Blog Banter involves an enthusiastic group of gaming bloggers, a common topic within the realm of EVE Online, and a week to post articles pertaining to the said topic. The resulting articles can either be short or quite extensive, either funny or dead serious, but are always a great fun to read! Any questions about the EVE Blog Banter should be directed to crazykinux@gmail.com. Check out other EVE Blog Banter articles at the bottom of this post!

The first banter of 2010 comes to us from the EVE Blog Father, CrazyKinux himself, who asks the following: As we begin another year in New Eden, ask yourselves "What Now?" What will I attempt next? What haven't I done so far in EVE? Was it out fear, funds, or knowledge? Have I always wanted to start my own corporation, but have never dared doing so? Is there a fledging mercenary waiting to come out of its shell? Or maybe an Industrialist? What steps and objectives will I set myself to accomplish in order to reach my ultimate goal for this year? EVE is what you make of it. So, what is it going to be for you?

I'm faced with a horrible year for Eve. With member #3 on the way for the Carebear Brigade I will be assigned to Twin Escort Duty almost constantly. Keeping up my scant playtime I have now will be impossible; logging in to change skills will be the best I will be able to do for many weeks. Perhaps in the fall some semblance of normality will return and I will log in regularly again, but only time will tell.

As such, my goals for this year are modest. Kirith is going to cross train into more Tech II Gallente ships with the possibility of going for a Proteus Strategic Cruiser late in the year on the table. Derranna will continue her combat training with a carrier being her ultimate goal after being able to field Tech II large projectiles in a Minmatar battleship.

I plan to continue to stay with M3 and live the good life PvPing when I can in Providence or wherever my corp takes me. I know its all very unexciting but when Real Life becomes very exciting and unsettled, my virtual life has to calm down.

  1. I suppose one of the nice parts about the Eve design is you can also approach the game in a more casual manner without to many repercussions.

    And even when you're not doing much, when you come back to game - you might have unlocked something new, such as a new ship to take out and enjoy.
