I was debating whether to post this knowing the vitriolic nature that can be the eve forums, but thought that I may be able to gain some knowledge and maybe even direction if I posted and so here it is, any such replies ill ignore.
Back in December my main character had been active for 9 years. Since that time new characters have been added, new accounts subbed etc until we get to where I am today, 2 subbed Omega accounts with 3 characters each (paid for not plexed) and 2 Alpha accounts, 5 characters that are doing various things.
I’ve been in high sec, null sec, low sec and Wormhole space with multiple corps and alliances. I mainly PVE (Industry and exploration normally with the odd mission thrown in) and also PVP on occasion, generally solo as currently at least most of my corp is either a different TZ or just inactive. But whilst that is true of this corp I even find myself going solo when I was in TZ that my corp was active in.
I am bored, nothing seems to interest me now. Today I went out hunting and even got a kill but it did nothing for the adrenalin, it was just another thing in a game that seems so lacklustre these days. I remember back near the beginning being wardecced when I was in a high sec corp and we had a fight with the deccers, my hands were shaking with the adrenalin, I loved it.
Thing is I find this game quite addictive still in terms of wanting to log in but I think I definitely need to start getting more involved in group things, small roams etc so that side, the solo side and being bored of that is definitely on me, but I think I need something more and I think that something more is purpose.
You can be in a corp and do things together but if you still lack purpose then those things will soon have little meaning and become boring… least that is my theory.
What are your thoughts, do you need or have purpose, if so what is it? What keeps you logging in and interested?
