I can't seem to decide what my main focus is in eve. After almost 2 years of playing I've been carebearing in high sec with mining and doing missions. I've been active in null sec engaging in pvp and I focused on exploration a while right after the odyssey expansion. But I can't seem to find a home system. I went back to null sec for a while but the overcrowded systems in providence made me regret that decision pretty soon. So a few days ago I started to move back to high sec to keep my alts company and to help them out doing various things. One of those things is mining gas. I haven't been in many wormholes during my eve career but Ive been scanning them down and exploring them a bit with my alts but as they are mainly industrial characters and have no to little fighting skills its been hard clearing the data and relic sites from the sleepers. So that's what I've been doing with my main lately, clearing sleepers from exploration and gas sites for my alts to move in and mine or to hack some modules. As I said I've never been much in wormholes and the easthetic about them is really appealing to me, but as I stated before in this entry I can't seem to keep my focus on wormholes alone. For instance mining gas was cool for a while and made me some nice isk but I couldn't keep it up for more than 2 hours. When that much time has passed in one play through I need to change up my activity or else I get bored. And that's a bit my curse in this game as every endeavour seems to take ages. Still I keep on flying around and doing my thing, always aching to try new things out.
Well, I guess I am not your most typical eve player. For one, I dont like to be talking about fittings all day. I know my way around the modules to make a decent fit. But I'm not really interested in getting a bonus of 5% dps or getting the max out of my capacitor by trying out stuff on Eft. I also am very interested in the back story and lore about new eden unlike a lot of other players. It seems to me that most people dont even care or notice all the rich lore. I just finished reading the first book and I think it was an awesome story. It truly expands the experience you get when flying around new eden. Not only the books but also the free chronicles give you an awesome inside look on the culture and habits of the four main races. You can even combine it with your playstyle, for example reading them while mining or while you sit cloaked at a gate looking for reds. And even when that takes up to much for your attention you can listen to the audio version available through various kinds of podcasts. Like eve reader etc. I listen to podcast or audiobooks most of the time while playing eve because I get a bit worn out on the ingame music. Especially when you are stationed in null sec or in a wormhole. So instead listen to the massive amount of eve online podcasts out there and learn a lot about the game and the players within it. This way you can also combine both worlds, the player created one and the lore one. By the way, there are many podcasts like "legacy of a capsuleer" or "cap stable" who do interviews with the new candidates for thr ninth CSM. Check em out and don't forget to vote!
