I’ve been forced to stay up later than normal. My wife went to bed very late, and I have to wait for her to fall asleep before I retire for the night.
Now this might not make sense to some readers, but the older married people amongst you might understand. If I go to bed and my wife is still awake, she will inevitably start prattling on about what work task is on her mind, or whatever has recently annoyed her. The topic will be the thing we have already covered earlier on in the day, yet the chat can go on for an hour or more. Actually, when I say conversation and chat what I really mean is my wife chats and I listen. I will occasionally get to interject with a “will you stop talking and go to sleep”, which will progress to “please will you stop talking”, and finally on to “for the love of god please shut up” – all of which will be ignored.
The next morning my wife will wake up extra grumpy, complaining she didn’t get enough sleep, and that it was my fault. Or maybe that is just my situation.
Anyway, I digress. During my unexpected awake time, I’ve been pondering just how far will CCP go with these Circadian Sleepers and Drifters? Will they leave them as a somewhat benign NPC we end up ignoring, or will they really shake up the game environment? Will their wormholes become usable for us? Will they impact the effectiveness of Concord and Faction Police? Will they change the nature of some of the systems they are within?
I am hoping it is something we don’t expect, and forces change upon us. I am hoping it gives us some “Oh wow” moments.
Speaking of change, during the last o7 EVE show CCP indicated they should be releasing a couple DEV blogs this week, the second outlining their plans for the future of Null Sec Sov and asking for feedback. They alluded to it being a big shake up. I hope it is really interesting and a challenge.
Continue being brave CCP.
Ok, my wife should be asleep by now, time for me to go to bed.
