Space Jaunting: Part 2 – Last Day – Resigned to failure
Hello, you join us today on a sad day in Maxi Foyle’s EVE life. It’s a sad day because it is his last day with his current corporation and perhaps his last day in EVE. You see, Maxi Foyle, Space Resigner, feels he’s reached the Event Horizon of EVE Online. The new gameplay mechanics, the exploration and adventure, the excitement of working with (and against) other humans all had Maxi tumbling into the EVE online lifestyle in a big way, but recently things have become a bit stale. The time required to learn each new skill, to get each new ship, to do each new money making industrial enterprise gets longer and longer, and more and more expensive. Over the last week or so Maxi’s started feeling he has seen all he’s likely to see from EVE for the near future, and with each goal he acheives each new goal seems further and further to grind before reaching it.
What does this all mean? I’m afraid it means, for the time being, there will be no more Space Jaunting blog. The time and effort required to play this amazing, deep, all encompassing game is more than I can afford at the moment. So rather than force my way through and write less and less exciting posts I’m going to draw a line under it here and keep this blog as it was intended: as a slightly silly journey of a total beginner in the world of EVE online.
It’s been incredibly fun, certainly some of my all-time favourite gaming moments have occured in this game. The stupid thing about me saying it’s getting less fun is that I’m forgetting some of the greatest escapades have happened when I least expected them to. So often I’ve signed on just for 10 minutes to say hello to the corp and update my skill queue, and then 3 hours and a PvP skirmish, or a stupidly difficult mission later I’m only just logging off. If I get the time back I will continue with EVE and I will make sure you all hear about Maxi Foyle’s new adventures, but for now this is goodbye.
