Week 1 Poll
Well hello there forum people! I’ve been ‘on’ the forums and Reddit since I started playing EVE about a year ago, but only for reading, never for interacting.
That’s about to change.
I read this r/eve post by r/Unlikely_Explanation and it struck a chord with me. I love the community of this game and how amazingly people can link third-party tools and sites with actual in-game information. Everything can be so integrated and I love watching all the Twitch, youTube and other real time shows/gameplay when I can’t play.
But I’ve never tried to make a contribution myself.
I’m a new-ish player who, probably, should have had more experience than I have based on my time playing. I started playing with an industry friend and so, initially, I spent a lot of time skilling in to research stuff. Only since my time in RvB did I try to skill in to actual spaceship flying (seems like an obvious thing to do now…) and since I’ve been in Brave have I actually tried to use those skill (virtual, not actual ).
That pre-amble to say: I need to branch out. I love the game but have barely done anything new myself, I’ve followed others (joining fleets, copying fits, being guided in to skill paths, hell the first thing I started doing was helping research someone else’s blueprints!) rather than lead myself.
So now, inspired by that reddit post, I’m going to challenge myself a bit more. Well… I’m going to let you guys challenge me a bit more (yes, the irony is not lost on me). Starting from now I’m going to accept a weekly challenge.
I’m sure it will evolve but the plan at this point is to accept a bunch of challenge submissions from you guys and put up a poll with the best 3/4 challenges and leave it up to the community to decide. I’ll only filter out ones that I can’t do (due to fitting restrictions or ISK maybe) but otherwise I’ll try leave it as open as possible but I’ll submit a video/writeup with the results of each challenge.
If anyone is interested in this, start submitting some challenge suggestions for this week and I’ll start next Monday! If there isn’t enough interest I’ll make some up until (IF!) this gains some traction.
Fingers crossed this works out, even if it only lasts a few weeks I’m sure I’ll get something out of it
