Since my last post here, I’ve seen some interesting evolutions in my gameplay. Let me take you through them one by one.
First, my regional trader became more and more successful; and at this point I am making more than enough money on this trading venture to cover all my main’s PvP needs. Still not enough to PLEX my account, but instead of pushing towards this goal, I decided to let it slip a bit and just enjoy the fact that I make hundreds of millions a month with just half an hour a week or so of effort. Can’t be beat, I would say.
Second, I started exploring more aspects of the game on my main, Lynx. He’s moved on to Null Sec first, and to my surprise it turned out to be not quite as scary as I thought at first. Bubbles, sure, but you learn to live with them. And not having gate and station guns really makes the game a lot more… “free”, if you will. You get a lot more options in null for PvP, lots more options on the tactical level as well… But for some reason, just a few weeks later I moved on to Eve University’s Wormhole Campus – the next level, so to speak. Why? Just because I could. I finally had the skills for a Covert Ops and a Battlecruiser, so no reason to wait, right? And I had never spent any time learning about exploration and wormholes.
So that’s my current challenge: figuring out how to live in wormhole space efficiently, getting the hang of scanning quickly and living without local, flying bigger and more blingy ships, and even running sites (imagine that, me doing PvE… that is a first).
In the meantime, lots of people in my old lowsec haunt have stepped up to start FCing and I have to say, I want to head over there again to join some of their roams, just to see how they are doing. One day I may want to do one myself, I think. But not just yet. A little while longer.
