Like a lot of Eve veterans, I am finding myself in a position to renew my "fun" in Eve Online. During this process, you ask yourself a lot of questions and do a great deal of self-reflection. I would venture to bet that most veteran players eventually find themselves in a spot where they want to forget about the Eve Politik machine and just have fun with the Pew Pew.

I've found myself in that position now and have been in search of that "fun" factor. During this search, I have talked to old friends, talked to some new friends and even gone back to the basics by running missions and ganking noobs in low-sec.

In the many converstations I have had over the last couple weeks that I have been back in Eve, a few things have come to light. Since I don't know the culprit, I am unable to confront them personally. Therefore, I am doing it here in hopes that those responsible will see this post and refrain from continuing to defame my character.

1) I have not sold my account. Seems some people believe that I am not the original Drakma. Rest assured I am still the same old cranky bastard that grew from a complete nubbin in Falschirmjager to what I am today.

2) I have never sold Dreads to BoB. Seems somebody out there is spreading the rumor that I sold 15 dreads to BoB at incredibly low prices. The only dread I ever sold was in AZN after BoB had captured it. It was sold at full price to a noob corp member. If that noob corp member was a BoB alt, then so be it, shame on me.

3) I do not have any ASCN capital BPOs. I don't know where this rumor even started and I honestly don't know what I would do with them anyway.

4) I was the "mastermind" behind the ASCN invasion of TPAR. It was my plan completely. The plan called for one corp to take the lead on transporting the POS modules from the staging area to TPAR. Sadly, not a single member from that corp seemed to make it into the invasion operation. Some very dedicated pilots stayed up VERY late to get as far as they could. Shame on me for not having a contingency plan for the transport of these seriously important modules. I'll take the full blame on that one.

I have no issues taking blame where it is truely mine, but it seems to me that some individuals can't seem to realize their shortcomings and must instead blame it on others (behind their back nonetheless).

Now, please let this old, gray-haired pilot move on so he can find the fun in Eve again.

5. Foiling 5 hour op the next afternoon that was gonna ship over the pos modules by carrier because of your own big ego.

6. Attempting character assasination of Virtuozzo on caod on the basis of nothing. Claiming that you have undeniable proof but cant show them.

Sub Gop, just wanted to remind you that you still have no clue about anything. Keep up the good work of keeping your head in the sand. Hope this helps with your, "I can't admit I have any faults so I must blame others" lifestyle.

Veteran problem indeed for some of us. Been there, done that. Now what?

Long story short I found fun in just pew pewing. No politics, no land claims, no pos wars.
Do what I feel like doing at any given moment.
Camp a gate, gank a n00b, engage a fightable enemy gang. Be a little fast inty in a big fleet doing furballs with enemy inties (less lag would be fun). Go build/trade something when I dont feel like pewpewing. Funnily ratting/mission running is something I dont really like. Though the faction store might actually get me to pew pew few L4's once in a while so I can get those sweet crystals.

I have been thinking why I am still in this game. Reason is there is nothing else on the market atm to compare + I do hope revelation 3 and future expansions will make the game even more diverse. It's just this massive amount of options that keeps vets like me playing this. Bored of one thing? Do something else. Bored of that as well? We have a myriad of other options for you to think about. Platerary interaction + walking on stations as again few of those candies that make a vet stay, more option to consider and interact with.

If the game gets boring for you, it's cause you haven't discovered anything worth while to you from another aspect of it. Means you too lazy to look for it.

You know it would help your credibility if you came up with arguments that go beyond "stfu you dont have a clue".

You need to do what I did, turn 180 degrees around and do the opposite of what you are doing now. Hell, it is a game after all, and if you decide to go on a shooting spree who really cares.

Take some time and join a pirate alliance (Privateers as an example Rolling Eyes) and use all those killing skills everyday.

It's fun!

We had our differences, and you are a moody SOB...but at the same time you're a good guy, and anyone poking you with a stick (Gob) should be forced to watch 48 hours of Golden Girls Laughing

do what i did when icame to the problem of what to do next.

Start a corp with like minded pilots who can you trust and will back you up whatever, then live in NPC 0.0 space and just shoot everything that pases by.

zero politics just fun.
