I mentioned in my last post that Dust514 items would no longer be on the market after a patch (that has since been applied). I thought I might go collect some of the items, just for interest, but it turns out you couldn’t buy any of the gear from within EVE. I probably should have known that.
No idea if I have mentioned it before, but I have Essential Tremors. I’ve had them all my adult life, and they have very slowly progressed over the years from barely noticeable to occasionally embarrassing. It is a common and minor thing, not normally worth discussing. I saw a Neurologist about them recently – a sort of once a decade check in, plus I had a couple questions. He linked in a number of other minor things to the Tremors that I had not realised related. It turns out my adrenaline fuelled shakes that make it almost physically impossible for me to PVP are also tied in to it. I might have a medical excuse for not playing EVE properly.
Speaking of playing EVE. (See that segue? What blogging prowess.) Without realising it I may have tripped into taking an EVE break. Like most things EVE related, I’m not sure I am doing it right. I still log in every other day to update market entries or grab 10K SP, but I am only online for a few minutes. There is nothing I particularly want to do while undocked, and no goals I am working towards.
While I am still reading the release patch notes and anything else CCP talks about, it has been a while since something has grabbed my attention (in a positive way). I’m not inclined at the moment to work hard at alleviating this malaise, and feel comfortable enough to let things slide for a bit. My accounts are still paid up – my Alt until September, and my Main until February next year. I am still looking forward to the 10-year anniversary milestone.
So without drama or fanfare, I may, or may not, post less. You have been forewarned.
