Goals & Momentum

"Life in a Wormhole" is a collection of blog posts documenting my adventures in EVE Online. Together with a small group of real life friends we will attempt to survive in the harshest of space EVE has to offer.

So far, my goal is to live inside a wormhole. That's about as far as I've got. There is no "the plan". Whether I end up anchoring a POS; or basing in an Orca; or even roaming WH Space searching for PvP kills... that's all unknown.

And that's Ok, because regardless of which route I take - I need ISK first. My missioning so far has granted me around 200 million from a few hours of level 4s. It's steady progress, I'm happy with it.

"Plus One."

A new development in the plan. A friend of mine saw me streaming, saw my CNR with it's awesome digital skin & the funky new missile animations, decided he wanted to re-try EVE. This is great news. In terms of gaming abilities he's as skilled as the rest of us, plus I'm pretty sure he has the intelligence required to master EVE.

However, as I've found with all new recruits to EVE... Patience, will be a deciding factor. I think back to the 5, 6, 7 times I tried EVE before I finally "got into it". What really hooked me, was having a group to play with. Specifically, I found a corporation called OUCH who taught me all about surviving in null sec. Once I had that group to run with, I would become hooked for months.

I don't want to leave him alone in space. Not because he can't handle himself, but because it's boring running solo. Plus (perhaps a hidden agenda here) I'd really like to get back into a Merlin and speed tank a few level 2s, a total change of pace from my CNR's "sit there and shoot cruise missiles at everything".

The question is, whether I could get any use of a third account. Or whether I'm happy to suspend my primary alt's training to go play tutorials again. I'll get back to you on that.

Either way, it's sure to put the breaks on my ISK grinding - but if it results in us having a stronger wormhole team, it'll be totally worth it. After all, without a good corporation behind me, it's only a matter of time before I jump ship to the next MMO.
