I think I've got the other games out of my blood for a bit. We'll find out. Yea, skill flipping for the last few weeks while playing other games has been the norm this time round. I just haven't felt like playing EVE at all. Part of it was some conversations with other friends who used to play EVE and won't be back. Kinda makes things a bit of a downer. Been playing Planetside 2 (PC based and yea Dust 514 is going to have it's work cut out for it), Minecraft for the carebear stuff, World of Tanks for my MOBA PvP fix. We'll see. I've been playing EVE online since the start of 2007 and it's now 2013... That's 6 years in February. Still kind of at a loss for direction.
But I've decided to get my (in game) finances under control over the next little bit and see what happens over the next while. So last night, in celebration of the new year, I flipped the skill (so by tonight I will have finished off the ladar sensor strengthening skill to 5) and started in on the polishing up of some Navigation skills. Yes I know a matari player without maxed nav skills. I'll get there. And then looked at my stable of ships. Humm there's a Scimitar gathering dust.
Takes me a while to remember how this goes. Then I remember "oh yea, Journal to find the closest Incursion". Not bad 16 jumps away. I head out to the incursion and just put my hat in the ring. The first fleet that was looking for a Logi pilot was a bit of a bust. Disorganized, only the two (two?!? where's the third logi???) Logi pilots in the fleet get on voice coms. After some discussion with the other logi pilot about the state of the fleet and the lack of anything remotely resembling organization, we both decide to bail.
After that things went much better. I get picked up by the fleet that was a few seconds late getting their invite to me the first time. Things go much better right off the bat. I've got two Basi pilots to work with and we're directed to a TS server for voice coms. Much more comfortable.
Not much to say. I managed to get 8 runs in, so it was a productive first session back in the game. We'll have to see how things go tonight. I did managed to knock some rust off.
