Why can’t I have that much fun?
Posted by Corelin
First I’m gonna like a video from Synnistry’s youtube page.
Now I enjoy EvE. I have fun with it and I do feel I’m a part of the community. In that delusional “I’m kind of a big deal” way. It’s rare that I have on occassion in EvE that has my giggling and grinning like crazy at my computer like Synnistry seems to all the time.
I started playing with Sualah (GF) and trying to both give her perspective on things and let her find the enjoyment of EvE. I’m not doing well. I’m torn between the desire to show her how amazing and BIG EvE can be and the desire to let her get the sense of achievement for herself. The down side of being jaded is it is a LOT harder to express how much you like it without expressing your reservations.
That being said it puts a LOT of things in perspective for me. Level 1s can be really hard for a day old character, especially with the resources you have and the knowledge you have. Now I know why I started mining. I ended up spending several million getting her a decent mission-fit merlin, then again your capabilities expand SO fast at the beginning she may not even need it in a couple days when she gets another chance to play.
Fancy Hats are still chugging along, Incursions have exploded into a drama circus, nothing terribly exciting though I do have a few fun drafts to play with so hopefully I can be more interesting next week.
