EVE Online: Ascension is getting deployed on November 8th and with it New Eden is going to see many changes… Clone States, Engineering Complexes, a Revised New Player Experience, the death of Off-Grid boosts with the introduction of Command Bursts and a Mining Foreman Revolution.

Since the Mining Foreman Revolution Devblog has been published we’ve already seen the result of some speculation with prices of the Orca jumping up 40% and the Rorqual going up 20%. Honestly it’ll likely take a few months for the true effects of all the changes to be seen, realized and acted upon but in the in-between time I’m going to take advantage of all the speculations that I can.

Will have to see how well I can do that   🙂

There has been nothing particularly exciting happening lately to talk about. Life in New Eden rolls along, we’ve got Fleets going out with ships exploding, ratting, exploring, PI updating, industrial jobs finished and started, etc…

It kinda feels like we’re in a lull period right now while we wait out the next month and a bit for the next big release to hit EVE and with it likely a spike in activity levels while we all adapt to the new way of things.

For the next while I’m just going to keep on, keepin’ on!

There are cycles of activity in EVE. Sometimes it’s all ‘pew-pew’ all the time and other times it’s all about the ‘chores’ – consolidating assets, Corp/Alliance logistics, cleaning up and organizing hangars, etc…

My last few days in New Eden have been all about the chores but at least they are mostly done now and I can get back into the ‘pew-pew’!!!

We’ve got a long-weekend here in Canada and I’m looking forward to some solid time in New Eden away from the chore duties.

Well… I had gotten all excited to get some serious play time in New Eden but that didn’t happen. As it happens around this time of year RL continues to be busy – birthdays, holiday season gatherings, a new puppy and my part-time job at an outdoor retail store are all hopping right now.

I have been playing some but it’s pretty sporadic at the moment but just a couple more days of work to get through then I get a bunch of days off and will hopefully get some solid play time then!

At the moment I’m not a fully capable contributor to our Alliance as I’ve not got my ratting or industrial assets brought out yet so am unable to take part in any of our indices building operations. It’s likely going to take another week or so before I will have all the assets I want/need in our new AOE. With out a Jump Freighter of my own I’m relying on our Corp JF crew to move the bulky things for me and don’t want to put any pressure on them as they are definitely pretty crushed right now with all the logistics stuff, their own and for many of the Corp that are ‘AFK’ due to RL stuff.

It’s not a big deal as there is always something to do, we’re in a fairly active area, we’ve got randoms passing through and small Fleets looking for targets and this spot is new to me so there are lots of fresh Systems of New Eden for me to explore.

I am looking forward to getting ‘settled’ once again but in the mean time I’ll keep myself busy!

I’ve been pretty fortunate with my time in EVE so far and have not come across many utterly senseless players. There is the occasional High-Sec ganker who will inundate Local Chat with his full-fledged role-playing and sometimes there are other Capsuleers who just like to fill the Chat Channel with a bunch of nonsensical garbage to feed their egos and pump themselves up – these types of guys are usually found in the more active systems around trade hubs are are easily dealt with using the ‘Block’ function.

I’m not one to chat with strangers and for the most part won’t engage in a conversation even if ‘called out’ in Local, like I was by a War Target the other day, but every so often you run across a mate or someone else familiar while traveling about and then it’s always nice to throw out a “o/” or stop for a brief chat. This happened a couple times the other night and both were good interactions, the first was with a mate that I’ve Fleeted with a few times and the other was a brief convo with another pilot that knows Fifth the the RL brother quite well.

I sure do enjoy those random encounters and the camaraderie of New Eden in the far out reaches of Null-Sec.
