Original player from 2004, left for an 8y break and am back. Ask me anything

(Berger Luckmann) #41

What is math?

(Nana Skalski) #42

Then log your mains back in all at once when the system came back up because you were prepared for it and kill the other fleet as they trickled in disoriented.

Now its impossible. You have to really commit some alts to a fight. More alts the merrier. Untill you get TiDi, I mean it takes a long time to enjoy all of the slow motion, few thousand players battle. Hehe. You see, thats not what I enjoy the most tho… I dont know what those people see in it even. Experienced it once and it was awful.

Berger, I failed 2nd grade 7 times :slight_smile:

(Nana Skalski) #44

People sometimes want to play in old setting tho.
I dont blame them, I would like to get back in time to 2011.

(Taliena) #45

Who remembers the player run eve lottery!?!

(Nana Skalski) #46

EVE lottery? I dont know. There is still some thing like BIG lottery, but it changed the rules, its now technically a givaway.

For accuracy:

The “boiling the frog until it dies” thing is a myth that didn’t hold up against the experiment.
Frogs jump out as soon as the water gets too hot, no matter how slowly it’s being heated up.

Baby don’t sqrt* me, don’t sqrt me no more!

*(say: squirt)

(Salt Foambreaker) #49

Everyone with Google :wink:

(Kalpel) #50

Pretty much LOL … it was a great game tho, I won quite a few ships!

(Aves Asio) #51

It was true at least for the Sanctum constellation and if im not mistaking Yulai was the main trede hub back in the day

(Taliena) #52

Aves, correct, Yulai was the big hub like Jita is today. CCP made some changes that discouraged all trade being congregated to just Yulai (don’t exactly remember those changes right now). They nerfed a system if I recall correctly hahaha. But eventually the player base just found Jita fit their needs and everything relocated there fairly quickly. CCP realized it wasn’t worth fighting so they just upgraded the servers that ran the Jita node hahaha.

(Solstice Projekt) #53

Yeah but that was one, single, constellation.

(Aves Asio) #54

Yeah but this is not the first time you were rude to people because you were ignorant.

Trim the root end of the sprouts by a few mm and remove the top layer of outer leaves.

Say to yourself ‘hey, i never noticed that a pod looks like a brussels sprout’

Quarter the sprouts along their long axis and put them in a bowl

toss with olive oil and - to taste - salt, pepper, red pepper flakes (i like the korean ones) and a bit of curry powder, just a bit

go back to before the first step and pre-heat the oven to 425F

roast the sprouts until the outer leaves are browning and just starting to crinkle up if you like them more firm, longer if you like them crispier.

try to let them cool off before you eat one

(Sovereign - Citizen) #57

My therapist keeps telling me to stop comparing myself to other people—that life’s not a competition.

Which, to be fair, is exactly what I’d say to someone I was trying to beat, too.

(Arthur Aihaken) #58

What was it like outside? Can you truly bask in the warmth of the sun?

(Salt Foambreaker) #59

If you like skin cancer, otherwise best to stay indoors and play EVE!

(Nicolai Serkanner) #60

Your therapist should seek another job. (S)He sucks at it.
