Man, I almost don’t even recognize this game! So much as changed since I stopped playing a few months ago. Everything looks even better than when I left it. One thing I’ve always admired about CCP is how they continue to update and enhance the experience. The autopilot is better, overview is better, scanner is better. I totally have that old man “you young whipper-snappers will never know what it was like” feeling about me!
Just how rusty I am slapped me right across the face the first two times I signed into the game. I almost immediately lost a scanning ship and my DED space running Ishtar. The latter was a gate camp that podded me as well for a grand total loss of a lot more than I’m willing to admit. Indeed, New Eden is a harsh environment and its denizens are harsher still. As discouraging as it was to lose so much so quickly after my return, it also reminded me of what always draws me back to this game.
Also apparently you can’t wordwrap around an image anymore…
But yes the sandbox! In all of it’s glory! How I have missed you! But as I assess my place in the universe it became clear to me that some changes needed to be made. For one, fuck Gallente space. I mean serious, it is amazing to me just how much one can come to hate a piece of virtual cosmos. I hate their rats, their players, everything about the area rubs me the wrong way. So it looks like it’s time for another move…UGH. I’m not 100% positive, but moving in Eve may be just as much of a pain in the ass as moving in real life. That’s why I’m going to take my time and really look around. For now I’m focusing on two regions, Derelik and Heimatar. If anyone has some experience in either as a single pilot doing PvE for money and PvP for fun, I’d love to hear about it!
Ah it’s good to be back.
