CCP wants you to log in again.
There are 5 days’ worth of Halloween stuff to collect – including some skill points, fireworks, and some skins. It is active now.
One of the skins is for an Avatar Titan. I wonder at the thought process behind that. Let’s give every Omega Pilot a skin for a Titan that only a tiny fraction of them will ever have. CCP seems to view Titian skills as so rare even their EVE Portal App has reported my training in them as unknown skills.
Oh well, gift horse, mouth, and all that stuff.
The “Shocking” PVP event mentioned starts shortly – from 11:00 UTC on the 29th of October through to 11:00 on the 5th of November. Called trick or treat, 100% of the loot will drop from PVP kills. If you die, all modules and cargo drop. That removes the gamble from suicide ganking, so expect a lot more of it for a week.
You probably need to halve the value of any ship fit or cargo you are comfortable flying around in during Trick or Treat, or just don’t undock.
I had a moment of clarity regards EVE the other evening. I was talking to an x-player, who tends to come and go from the game. They mostly play solo, and like mining in High Sec and accomplishing industry type goals. They had heard that the game had become a lot less friendly to his style of play and asked if I would recommend it for him right now. I wouldn’t recommend it was my reply.
