Thinking of playing again, but I’m kinda lost. I stopped 18 months ago. When I stopped, I was gearing up for T1 PVP. I’ve played many years on and off, just not much PVP, mostly exploring and hauling.
the first part of being lost comes from skill queue and 3rd party apps. I was able to plan my skill queue pretty well both in game and out. I logged in recently, and something changed; I can’t figure out what I’m doing skill wise. The interface doesn’t seem to hold as much info or display it as succinctly as it used to, and I believe I need that. I think I used eve-mon or something, that helped plan skills to a specific goal.
the second part is this alpha omega thing. Many of myy skills are well past alpha, so I can’t just jump in for a quick run and use my characters as they are. That’s not such a big deal though, as I can pay a month. What I really need is a way to figure out where I was going when I stopped, and that would come in skill tree visibility.
Another thought, this game has been churning along for many years. Now that CCP has been purchased by a south Korean company, I don’t have as much faith that EVE is going to remain popular for much longer. I love the game, but it requires a considerable amount of time and planning. If a death spiral is coming, it may be better to look forward to whatever would take over in this space.
In the end, I need help with skill planning and visibility. Something changed in the character interface for the worst, and I need to overcome that.
