Well, this seems strange now after so long. Last time I was posting here was in month two of the Great Northern War with everything still very much up in the air and RONA-KIA gangs of raiders scouring Deklein while NVA (Evol, RKK, and allied forces were fighting PA+CA double MWD Ravens in Pureblind for supremacy). Pirates were ousting our allies in Tribute and Jericho Fraction was running rotating wardecs on Phoenix Alliance empire assets in Lonetrek and the EC border. Brand new Crow Interceptors were fitting cruise missiles and selling like wildfire and I managed to lose three Apocalypses’ in 2 days to enemy action and killmails hadn’t even been invented. The forums were aflame with accusations and counter accusations and Eve’s most brutal war to date was destroying thousands of ships a week and seeing the first elements of station “ping-pong” flipping in the north. What a time. And how much time has passed since. It’s incredible really.

But the triumph and joy and wonder of this game we all play called Eve Online is that those moments are never truly lost. They are the history, the storyline, the shared past experience and war-tales of each participant. Those battles of yesteryear found the memory and shape interactions of the future. There are people in the game now who are at the helm of powerful alliances I knew when they first started, there are corporations and entities of note and notoriety that have evolved and changed and shaped the universe we play in. The knowledge of those changes has never been lost, and the stories are written. People know their names, they know our names, we ghosts of the past even. We write the story that is Eve online. We decide our actions and our accomplishments and failures, glories and tragedies, all will be remembered. This enduring single server environment is an incredible achievement and the developers and community involved in Eve Online should be rightly proud.

I’d like to say a big thank you for everyone past and present who has supported me or at least appreciated the brand of political meddling and occasional insight I managed to bring to this great game. I’d like to salute the developer team for keeping us interested these years with a constantly evolving and involving space strategy game of vast scope and complexity and I’ll thank the community agents and volunteers for the work and sacrifice they’ve provided to enrich the environment we all enjoy.

And I’d like to say a huge thanks to Star Fraction alliance past and present, directors and members, fighters and propagandists and crazy anarchists all. You’ve all kept me in this game with your perseverance and accomplishment, with your verve and passion and never-say-die commitment to swimming against the stream and surviving Eve’s political descent into territorial empire building tyranny! In my darkest moments and frustration you've kept me engaged and hopeful and proud as I see what a small group of heroic revolutionaries can achieve in this game. Last summers Alliance tournament was a crowning accomplishment for years of striving and seeing the Star Fraction thorax fleet upsetting the odds and writing our name into history again made me immensely proud of everyone that made it happen.

And I'll say a very personal note of thanks to miss Revan Neferis, a great friend and confidante and much more besides, who never gave up on this moment and told me always to hope for things to be set straight in the end. A person of passion and commitment and endless understanding of the importance of community and inclusion in the single-server setting of Eve online, the kind of player that truly makes this game all it is and can be. Thank you with all my heart.

So there we are, three years gone and everything has changed in politics but many of the great names remain and the big fights against territorial powers are the same as they've ever been. I'm back and Star Fraction has never been away.

Let’s change the world.

Welcome back to E-O, I know the forums have seemed fairly lackluster without your posts in the past couple years.

Now all we need is Skillz, Joshua Calvert and Aneu to return to posting and we'll be set. Smile

I'd be incredibly surprised if you didn't start writing this post as soon as the announcement that oldtimers were going to get unbanned came through.
