Hello again!

Fozzzzzzzzzzzie Sov


Let me begin.  I don't have a problem with Fozzie Sov.  It's changed what we see in 0.0 a good degree.  We've seen lots of smaller alliances looking to live in 0.0 that realistically can now - in regions such as Catch, Cloud Ring, Wicked Creek, Cobalt Edge, and Scalding Pass.  The people who typically bitch about the new mechanics are those of unskilled blob alliances such as Goonswarm and Gentlemen's Club.  With very few exceptions, these entities have narrow vision and approach large fights in a conquer-the-grid style of "pvp."  They also have sizable supercap fleets used in the previous mechanic for grinding sov structures, which have millions of HP, Player Owned Customs Offices, and capital killing.

Fozzie Sov allows for the smaller entity to actually take a system or two without having to use capitals in doing so.  It does give you an assload of work later if you blue ball an entosis link ceptor.  It doesn't take much to defend a system, but what blob alliances are complaining about is actually having to respond to a troll ceptor or small gang.  This is what the bitching is about.  Remember kids, the max velocity of a ship using the entosis link is 4k.  Yes, the system is not perfect, but I don't think it's bad and this tends to encourage content creation.  It doesn't give a good reason to live in sov 0.0, but the sov mechanics system is something I really think is fine (could be tuned or adjusted of course, but the principle is solid).

Fighting for control of a system might be more dynamic now with players being able to (more easily) hit at several spots at once, something not seen much in years past.  An example of this is talked about in this Reddit post.  The biggest thing I've personally noticed is the extra content in EVE in the nearby region of Scalding Pass.  Just in the last few months, several alliances have moved in and been kicked out.  Two Inch Terror, Dramatic Exit, and Mad Associates are included in this group.  It's also given us some comical killmails.  All of our opinions as players need to be listened to, even the highsec miners out there.  I ask that you do a bit of looking around and you'll see what's going on.

Other Crap

I work in a Transitional Care Unit / Nursing Home as a nurse and the thing that fucking pisses me off the most is seeing the aides not helping their patients, not answering call lights, and lying about their jobs.  Suck it up and do your jobs.  You're there for the patients.  You don't have to like each other, but you do need to respect one another.  Take care of your shit.  Ask for help.  Use some of that stuff we call "integrity."  Also, take care of your own people before helping someone else's people.  It doesn't work when you go answer your partner's light before you answer one of three that are going off on your group.

Even in 2015, we still haven't figured out how to optimize traffic lights.  Why must we sit at a red light for two minutes at 3:00 AM when there's nobody around ?  I should record a trip through Minneapolis and point out where the fuck lights can be fixed at.

Been playing some Heroes of the Storm.  It's free.  Not that great, but free.  Gotta do something until Fallout 4 comes out.

On that note, I'll leave you with this.
