EVE Online

New Eden minor updates

I haven’t touched WildStar in a few days (or has it been 2 weeks with only logging in for a few mins?) because my non-Marvel Heroes time was mostly spent in New Eden, where my Nullsec char has now learned Interceptors (still need to save up for one though) and I also bought the first Scythe for Space Priesting after two quick stints in a Probe. Not sure yet how good I am at it, but it’s fun. Maybe more fun than shooting space ships. And my older “main” high sec carebear character can now fly Gallente HACs, as soon as I have enough ISK to buy and fit an Ishtar (notice a pattern?).
I think I’ve never been that low in ISK since my first week in EVE, but buying ships for two characters now, spending money on skill books and with the only source of income being ~5h of semi-afk mining in high sec while I surf the web on the second screen.. Not good. And while I’m not planning to buy PLEX to sell it for ISK, I kind of need to find a source of income it seems. Still plan to try Station Trading but I usually hate this AH flipping, it really feels like Excel to me and I never did it in WoW, where the source of my income was nearly 100% based on levelling so many alts and selling excess stuff that the gold kind of came in quicker than I could reasonably spend it, without investing a single minute into *earning* gold since TBC.
Moreover, I’d love to buy a PLEX or two for ISK in order to not pay for dualtrain, but apparently that’s a very unrealistic scenario. I wonder if there are people hating economics in games as much as I do and still making a decent income. The only game where I enjoyed trading a lot was some ~1997 era trading sim with ships. I really should search for the name, to have an example handy.
So while I enjoy reading Syp‘s shenanigans in multiple MMOs, I can definitely say it is not for me. In some weeks I might even spend more time ingame than he does, but 2 games are the absolute reasonable maximum that I can focus on. The only exception might be a mobile game on the subway or some Guitar Hero, but both occur more on a bimonthly (non-)schedule than on a daily one.

Stuff is happening… slowly

Sick at home, actually so bad that I can’t sit and play for more than an hour or two, so haven’t undocked in EVE (my new favorite game) in a few days.
Blogging would be totally possible, with a laptop in bed, just that nothing really happened. Plus I hope my sentences make sense.
Despite all of this I managed to level my Mordesh Stalker from 19 to 35 in the last 2 weeks or so, only adding a few of those levels in the last days, so at least something to write down. Awesome.
Failed the Malgrave Trail Veteran Adventure run on my main by a small margin on first try, so nothing really new there, it will still take tremendous time to get attuned.
