Eve Online isn’t dying. It’s just in a lull and what better way to scramble our way out of a lull than by discussing how to recruit and retain new players into New Eden. Imagine someone asks you at the water cooler, “What is this Eve thing?”, what do you say, where do you go from there, how much do you nerd out, and how overbearing could (should?) you be. We talk about all of this, and more, in episode 56 of the High Drag Eve Online Podcast.
Hello folks, it has been a week since the recording and in true eve fashion: the constructive criticism (bitching) in this episode is now obsolete. We were concerned with the silence from CCP as well as the podcasting community and our intentions were sinister; yet, like with most evil master plans, the very next day after the live recording, a devblog, a BC iteration thread, and a new Declarations of War podcast dropped… throwing our dastardly accusations to the wind. That doesn’t mean this episode isn’t fantastic… because… it is. I assure you. Enjoy!

I have said for years that “life is a terminal disease”. We are all born, and when that occurs, we are “on the clock”. If you follow me on twitter or read the very rare blogs I put up, you will know that my father has been battling cancer. His battle was lost as of Saturday morning. There is a bit of a relief as that person laying in that hospice bed did not resemble my father in any way. It was tough watching him go.
We spent the day yesterday at the funeral home making the necessary arrangements. He will be cremated. He will receive a military honor guard as he was a veteran and served his country proudly. Then he will come home.
This was my father’s pride and joy. He purchased it from my grandfather and has been in the family since. It’s hardly capsuleer technology. I will be bringing his ashes home in this car.
Plans are to record on September 10th. Same bat time, same bat channel. We’ll have Fin’s stream (hopefully) up and running.
In the meantime, give your parents, spouses, children and friends hugs. Tell them how much you care for them.
Ain’t none of us here forever.
The clock is ticking.
