Okay, so, Qim Tra’ageser is a name that has been passing around in EVE space since 2004. I’ve never been big news, but I’ve been near, sometimes, when big names do big news things. Or sometimes I know someone who was nearby.
This is the game that I’ve always wanted to play, it’s been the one I think of when I think of good MMO experiences, it’s my hearthstone, and it has been for almost 20 years. So why am I not playing it right now? What’s going on with that topic?
I like to think that grief is love remembered. It’s all those wonderful feelings wrapped up in the casing of “never again just like this.” You can look, but you cannot touch. My two dearest friends in the world, known in EVE as Theodore Brintle and Vika Dracis–two wonderful people, married and together for so many years, named Larry and Amy–have, in the years since walking out of Pater Tech School in 2004, died.
Even seeing the logo up there at the top of the forum here gives me pause, gives me emotions.
I miss them every single day.
My life would be empty if I avoided everything that I connect with them, and over the past 18 months of pandemic life, I’ve realized that is exactly what I’ve been doing. So I want to come back. I need EVE in my life again. But in order for me to succeed, I need friends, and all mine are dead.
Anyone want some old fool with way, way too much money and skill-points and ships and modules? I suppose the only thing worse than not finding a corp to join would be to not try, so here’s hoping. Heck, are you some old-timer who just wants to talk, but don’t have a corp for me to join? Cool, that’s great, I’d love that too.
And anyone else, too.
God I miss this this game. Much love to you all–
