I am finding myself having the same dilemma as I have had quite a few times over the last few years, my main has been in game many years and so I should know better really but it is something that I cannot seem to shake.
I cannot seem to find a corp that ticks all my boxes. Perhaps it doesn’t exist, perhaps I am thinking too hard on it I don’t know. All I know is that I find a group, I am ok for a while, get involved etc and then it all becomes a bit mundane and dull and I leave, rinse and repeat.
This may get wordy, apologies. But I just want/need to talk this out.
A brief outline of my time here. I started out in high sec years ago, moved to various null systems then wormhole space, low sec back to high sec for a short stint then back into wormholes. Wormholes can be OK, the PI is generally OK, but logistic wise can be a pain, even with a high sec static.
Null sec lost its initial attraction and became boring. Either surrounded by a sea of blues or being an F1 monkey in a tidi ravaged battle, but the PI again can be good for ISK making.
Low sec, or to be exact FW was OK, I guess, but again nothing to really shout home about. Plexing sites was good LP but boring, but the fleets we went on could be fun.
My wants in game are simple, have some fun, not let it be a chore and plex one of my 2 accounts per month if possible (with change left over for other in game purchases) and that last option is what I find myself chasing and I think that last option is probably the cause of my issue (6 of my characters do PI and whilst PI bores me senseless because it is a chore it is in essence free money).
Ultimately you need to make ISK in the game to get the things you want to get and do the things you want to do, if you can afford to do that from your day job pay packet then that is great, if not you need to make the money in game, but then you end up chasing the ISK in game to buy the plex to get the next month, that I know is not conducive to fun and things not being a chore. So I am thinking of letting the 2nd account lapse to alpha, using just the one account (3 characters) and trying something different.
Because I am chasing the ISK I have forgotten the most important aspect of the game and that is to have fun… so what do you guys do for fun in game? How do you keep it fresh? What keeps you logging on?
