A new record maybe

(Version 2 of this post)

It has been over five weeks since I had posted – possibly an inauspicious new record. I hadn’t noticed.

I’m still logging into EVE once a week or so but doing little other than playing the skin collecting game. I have on several occasions really wanted – needed – to be able to do some mindless mining. The reality is however you need to pay attention when mining now, and that defeats the purpose of using it to relax.

I noticed that someone has picked up the EVEMon project and moved it off the old API. I haven’t tried it – but it is available here if anyone wants to give it a go:

I am sporadically playing World of Warships. I tend to play a ship until I win its first battle of the day – which gives an XP bonus, then move onto the next ship. A consequence of that is I tend to end up with a large collection of ship lines all at the same Tier. At the moment that tier is VIII. I have been stuck at this point for a very long time – generally only around half way to Tier IX. To make matters worse – I find myself in Tier X matches more often than not, and even when I play at my very best, I have very little impact on the finally result.

I am only getting to Dungeon and Dragon’s Online once a month or less. I am meant to have Wednesday Night off to play, but my wife scheduled an activity for my Daughter on that evening.

Most of my gaming now is a session or two a day of Hay Day and SimCity on the iPad.

The main reason for this lack of free time is that I spend the vast majority of my days as a taxi service for my two kids – School, Karate x2, Soccer x5, Roller-skating, Youth Group and so on, plus doing all the shopping, cooking, cleaning and the myriad of other tasks that keep a household running.  For those unfortunate enough to read my earlier whinging version of this post, you would know I am not particularly happy with my circumstances at the moment.

EVE – even if I could find something new and interesting to do – just can’t get a look in.

    • I’ve watched a bunch of videos of World of Tank matches on YouTube. The game play is too twitchy for me to ever do well at it, so I’ve never installed it. World of Warships gives me more time to think about things in combat, which I find I need. The match making system however tends to leave me annoyed fairly quickly, to the point I log off for days / weeks at a time.
