I have never before posted on any of the Eve forums, so it may very well be that I am posting this in the wrong section. If I am sorry up front.
But after logging in today ( Eve time 00:43 on 8/17/2017) I find myself looking at a ship in station.
Just a ship. And yes, I read about the up coming changes to Eve.
And I have to say its simply not the same. Not for me.
I am certain that there are those out there that simply do not care.
Or I will be pinged by the technology gurus on how much server space it will save. Or whatever other widget.
Whatever. For me it did change the game to something that feels more than a bit more detached.
Not to mention any clothing/ tattoos etc. I might have purchased.
I spent time on getting my toon just right. Now its gone.
Now all I see is a ship. Just a ship, like any other ship.
I eventually got a paid subscriptions for three acccounts.
I cannot believe I actually spent real live money on pixels.
But I got into the game, and a very big part of the reason was a sort of quasi interaction with my toons.
Silly as hell I know, but still.
Its CCP’s game to do with as they well please, as noted add nausea by others. Yeah I know. I get it.
But its my money being spent paying the rent.
Being Eve someones gonna pipe up and say " Well don’t play then"
It feels so detached now I might.
Remember that your only as good as your loyal fan base.
Not the ones that are 1 year or less and gone.
The game has been steadily watered down.
From the difficulties of scanning to learning more about the meta.
Its still a difficult game. I am by far no expert. But damn man.
So now I sit in space or in station with a ship. Just a ship.
Maybe I can get my skin fix next. Or not.
I posted this in lore. Because I firmly believe they lost some of that lore that kept me coming back for more.
