Training Towards a Tengu #EVEOnline
As much as I love playing video games, I still haven’t found “The One” and don’t believe it exists yet. Wurm Online was probably the closest. As such, I play numerous games and will continue to do so – because guess what, they’re ALL fun, and each game (IMO) has a little unique feature to it that I greatly enjoy. My three ‘active’ games at the moment are GW2 (no subscription which is a fantastic thing for my nomadic gaming habits), WoW, and EVE Online. I still dip into other games but I would call those three my steadies.
In EVE Online I’m currently training towards a Tengu, and in between still working on my industry. I have a load of items to sell in Jita, so I’ll be planning a trip out that way some time soon. My R&D agents probably forgot who I even was when I showed up at their base today to request a mission (and of course to spend all that RP I had gained) because it has been a while since I popped my head into game, but things were just as I had left them, which I like.
EVE is still the most relaxing game that I play, even when I’m doing missions or traveling through NullSec. I wonder if it’s because I don’t see physical avatars running around from quest hub to quest hub, or because the idea of ‘space’ feels bigger than ‘a world’ that my character is adventuring on. Whatever the reason, it’s a great way for me to relax in the mornings with a warm mug of coffee, going through my daily ‘chores’ in-game. That mostly involves setting up my PI runs, checking my copy processes, manufacturing, and industry. Running missions for my R&D agents, and then a mission or two for loyalty points if I happen to be in the right area. Lately I’ve been running missions for a mining company in order to make some faction purchases, but I may branch out once I fit my newest ship: a fancy new Drake. We’ll see how it goes.
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
Nomadic gaming habits, sounds familiar!
Found your blog via Wurm just now, and I just took leave of EVE for a bit. Playing GW2, and yeah I find the fact there’s no sub fee somehow helps with my enjoyment. I don’t feel compelled to fill as much of my play time with grinding, or something.
Anyway, hope EVE’s going fine for you.
