Today’s post comes to you via the blog challenge posted over at CrazyKinux's Musing. This is an answer to his #7 - "What 3 things haven't you done in EVE and why? Would you be willing to try one day? Why so? Why not?"
Thing 1 – Pirating. Up until recently I really haven't had the resources to effectively enter low sec space, let alone pirate there. Now that I do, I still see no reason to go there and pirate - why would I want to grief random people who did nothing to me? /shrug
Also, since I'm a loner, it doesn't seem like pirating would be particularly effective. I MAY decide to level up my stealth skills eventually and grief a miner in order to influence low sec mineral prices, but that's not really likely.
Thing 2 – Enjoyed a fan-made video. Now, I do NOT want to be insulting here – I appreciate all the time and effort that goes into making a video and I realize it is not easy work. I just don’t enjoy them. At all. Not even a little bit. To me they all look exactly alike and I can rarely understand what’s going on in them. Again, this is probably a “me” problem but, well, I guess that means I just can’t or don’t enjoy them, ya know? There is ONE video I found interesting, now that I write about it some – Bumpageddon. But even that video was only exciting because it involved miners, griefing, and bouncing ships. Outside of that, as my wife says, “EVE always looks exactly the same. It’s a ship, on a black background, over and over again.” That does not make for entertaining videos.
That said, I may actually make an EVE video one day, but only to show off the awesome that is my Agent. Of course I won't be expecting anyone to be impressed with the cinematography or anything like that; it would only be to show what the Agent is capable of, how quickly he works, and how he can recover from bumps/losing targets etc.
Thing 3 – Corporation management. I’ve never run a corporation because that would require working with other people, and frankly, I don’t like other people. Still, I may do it one day - if I become a paraplegic.
