I never meant to quit.
But I went one week without playing.. and then two. I had a long skill queue set so it was no big deal. Pretty soon it had been a month. I knew before too long my account would lapse if I didn’t add another PLEX to it. That happened sometime February, I think.
I hadn’t paid for EVE for a couple of years so my credit card that was on the account had expired. I wrote before about trying to change it and I was mildly curious what would happen when the PLEX ran out. Apparently, nothing. No credit card bill, no email from CCP, nothing. At least nothing that I could see. I wasn’t exactly watching like a hawk when it happened. But I did go back and check through all my email accounts (and credit cards) to see if anything showed up. Nothing did.
I still read EVE blogs from time to time, but EVE is starting to feel like a foreign country very rapidly. I dread the thought of having to download a new patch.
And I am not playing any other MMO’s. Crowfall looks mildly interesting, but I didn’t support the Kickstarter and am waiting to see how the whole thing turns out. I really don’t know what I want right now, so I am just taking a long break. Perhaps a permanent one.
My apologies to those that have emailed me and I didn’t respond. Since I wasn’t blogging, I wasn’t really paying attention to the email account for the blog.
Thanks for all those who read my logs and posted comments, etc. I enjoyed interacting with the blogosphere in my own way. I also learned quite a bit.
I am not sure what would draw me back in. I am not sure I want to be drawn back in. I certainly have a lot more time now to devote to other pursuits.
EVE is game of goals. Goals that you set for yourself. In that, I think it can be a great training program for life – or a great substitute for it. My goals were to fly a Tengu all over space and pay for my account with the goodies I found there. After I did that for awhile, my goal was to blog about it and share the wealth. After that, I ran out of things that I really wanted to do – at least in EVE. So for now anyway, my goals are in other areas of life.
Fair winds and following seas!
