I’ve been rather active again on EVE the past couple of weeks, 14 days to be exact. Why’s that? Well I joined a new corporation with a few of my characters.
The past couple of years I’ve been part of a group of wormholers called “Dead Terrorists”, who when I joined them were living in a C2 with a Null/C5 static.
That was almost 2 years ago. Since then we’ve moved into Thera for both logistical reasons and to get more content on fleet nights.
The one thing I had a slight problem with, in my own time in EVE, is that I only seemed to be logging in for fleet nights. I never did log on any other day despite paying for three accounts.
The reason behind this is because I don’t really like doing things on my own. I’ve always enjoyed the social aspect of EVE and doing things solo is just not really my thing. I could always go out of the nullsec and find some content like that or join one of the many, many NPSI groups. But I want to fly with buddies, not alone.
And then CCP suddenly gives 7 days of Omega to people. For those of you reading who don’t know what that is, Omega is just EVE’s paid subscription. You can be an Alpha in the game which allows you to fly a limited amount of ships and train yourself up to about 5 million SP, after that you can’t really do more training until you pay.
Couple this with some amazing Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals
But the fact that CCP gave people the option to activate their accounts again for free during a certain time period has brought a lot of people back to the game. Couple this with some amazing Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals and you have a lot of people suddenly resubbing.
Including a couple of friends I used to fly with. One of which joined a wormhole corporation that lives in a C4 with a C3/C5 static. He poked me and told me to come fly with him on one of my alts and I did.
Within the week I had been on EVE more than I had in the past 6 months all together and I was also having a lot of fun. At which point I decided that I also wanted to move my main here.
But I still wanted to fly with my buddies in DT. Luckily both groups understood what I wanted to do and there was no issue for me to switch around a bit and now I have my two high SP characters in the C4 and my “dread alt” in Thera. He’s only got 80m sp but I used to use him for Naglfar ratting in C5, which is why he’s called the dread alt.
I’m flying ships I haven’t flown before, I’m free flying more than I’m used to and I’m even making some ISK on the side by doing marauder ratting.
There’s a ton of content down the chain and all in all. Life in EVE right now, is pretty damn good.
Let’s hope that there’s more of this to come.
But when I see what the future holds for the game, I am seeing a ripple of sun through the clouds that have been hanging over it in the past years.
CCP is stepping up their game and taking a turn for the best.
Stay tuned o7
