I can’t quit you

As some of you may have guessed after my most recent piece of fiction, I have left Aideron Robotics and am now back in my own corp, 3523 Industries. While I enjoyed Faction Warfare, and especially flying with the awesome folks in Aideron, I haven’t played much in the last 18 months. My subscription ran out in May of last year but prior to that I hadn’t really logged in much since about January of the same year as I had started back at school in February and so didn’t have much time to play. During the year I managed to get a girlfriend and move out of my parents home, which also meant I now had even less time to play, not that I could afford to.

In early December, I got 10 days of game time in an email reactivation offer, at which point I discovered our shitty internet was too shitty for me to play EVE. I logged in a little bit, by tethering my computer to my phone, but the connection was still not the best. It did however allow me to hang out with my corpmates and do some inventory management tasks. I also joined a fleet and got a couple of kills (and a loss or two). I also bought a PLEX. Then at Christmas, my amazing girlfriend bought be a six month subscription.

Sadly life kept me busy enough throughout January and early February that I didn’t much time to play. But in February I was finally able to purchase EVE: The Second Decade Collectors Edition and EVE:Source (I still have the 60 day new account code if anyone wants to buy it (for ISK) for an alt account or a friend). I love my Rifter USB hub. Then at the end of February it was back to school again. Now that the semester has ended, I now have time to play. Right as my subscription is due to run out again.

With my subscription running out, and not being able to do much of PVPing, I reluctantly made the decision to leave Aideron Robotics. My intention was to let my subscription lapse and just be another former player observing from the sidelines for a while, until I could afford to re-activate my subscription and I had the time to play. Yeah, that’s not going to happen. Recent live events got me wanting to play again, if only to take part in the live events.

Then I found a PLEX that was probably left over from the stash of items I got from the Second Decade Collectors Edition. My fate was sealed and I now have a month to make enough ISK to buy another PLEX. I’ll be doing some mining, running some missions and I’m going to get into some exploration. I’m also going to get some planetary colonies running. I have three weeks before I have to be back at school and my play time becomes limited again. The more ISK I can save up during that time, the better my chance of keeping my subscription active. I’m also hoping to blog more, with the goal of getting added to the list of Fansites and the free account that comes with it. Then I’ll be able to focus my ISK/RL subscription costs on my alt account.

EVE is a fickle mistress. Who knows what the future will hold. I look forward to finding out and hope you will all join me on the journey that is ahead of me. Long may it continue.
