  3. I think I finally closed the door on my EVE career last year. I started back in the early 2000s, not sure exactly when now. I had not played a proper video game since I was a kid playing Mrs. Packman on the Atari. I watched this news broadcast about some half-crazed fools blowing up thousands of dollars of real money equivalent pixels and though those are my kind of crazies! So I pulled out my crapy computer, ordered parts, and built an entry-level gaming computer and downloaded EVE online. No one I knew played EVE, I had no idea the gaping abyss I was launching into, but I threw myself off the ledge willingly. I tried a little bit of everything and ended up mining in solitude. I now sit here and smile as I remember the morning mad rush to clear the ice fields after DT, the can flippers, and the occasional gankers that braved the journey down from HS. I remember the war I almost started by taking my first OOC (out of corp) alt into the low sec triangle and getting attacked and almost blown up by a blue. I'm laughing at the tongue lashing I got from that, not because I took an ooc alt into alliance territory so much, but because of the god awful fit I had put on her mining ship. I never did learn much past the rudimentary basics of fitting a ship. Not even toward the end when I was flying a mini-fleet of rorqs after the rorq overhaul. For those of you who were still playing then, remember all the smart bombs disappearing off the market for a day or two?... that was me. I had a friend that fitted all my ships for me, he would figure it all out and go tell me what to buy, but something had happened and he wasn't around... think it was a new girlfriend or something and he had given me the basics of what to fit, so off to Jita I went. Since I was going to be using a mobile depot for the excavation drones, why not carry a few different fittings, and one of these fittings was a smart bomb fit. I had gotten everything bought but the smart bombs because I had one question... how many? I had never used a smart bomb, I had no idea if they were single use or multiple use (apparently now they are now modules that require ammo, back then they were still all in one units). I forget how many slots we planned for them, but I took a stab that 8 for each slot should work and I was going to be flying 4 rorqs... That purchase not only wiped out the entire supply of smart bombs in Jita, but left me bankrupt in game. There is a saying, don't fly what you can't afford to lose... and I now had 4 rorqs I could NOT afford to lose, I couldn't afford to lose a single ship I owned at that point. With even the last dust bunny at the bottom of my coffers traded in, I strapped myself in and undocked for null. A day or two later my friend resurfaced and I finally got to ask my question... how many smart bombs was I supposed to buy? Comms fell silent and this very slow, very cautious why came out of his mouth. In a jumbled rush, I tried to explain my confusion and what I had done and the entire channel burst out in laughter and astonishment. Later that day I slogged back to Jita and replenished the market of smart bombs. Now you know the story behind the smart-bomb disappearance after the rework of the rorqs. I never lived that down but it was and is moments like that made me love my time in EVE. I quit and came back many times over the years I played, but I finally walked away early last year (I think, time is a fuzzy and vague thing). I handed all my stuff over to my friend that had so bravely fitted my ships over the years when it was all said and sold in Jita he had enough to go buy one of those new keepstars and a titan. I told him to go yolo a titan for the hell of it, but he never did. In the end, I had built 2 gaming rigs, expanded to 5 monitors, 2 computers, 1 surface pro and even figure out how to use my large screen TV as another monitor and 12 or 13 accounts to run on it all, all in the name of EVE. As much as I love that EVE online was my first online video game, I also hate it. It spoiled me, the unlimited storage in a station. OK, that's not quite true, as I did one day rudely find out that there was a maximum item limit in a station (and containers). The harsh and brutal community that is also one of the most caring and close-knit, I don't think can ever be recreated, mostly because of what they have endured together. The whole global community where you see all different kinds of languages all day long, but in the end the the little things that bugged me, like trying to dock in station and getting an endless black screen while my ship was getting blown up... or that one of my fleet would lag just that extra second on aligning and get left out for the incoming gang became glaring problems that were just too old and tiresome to deal with anymore, but in the end I regret nothing, it was good. I hope the blank canvas that DU offers will be filled with as many, if not more colorful and wild tales as EVE can boast!
