HD 80: Playing Catch Up Part One

cropped-cropped-high-drag-pp-header3.png

Let’s not lose sight of what Eve Online is – a massive, evolving game where time spent engaged is measured in years. For some, the streak of continuous play time exceeds a decade, while others, not so much. This episode is for those – like me – that take frequent sabbaticals from New Eden and often feel lost when we attempt a triumphant return. The User Interface changes, ship fittings that once worked are suddenly broken, and the meta game shifts are unrecognizable. Even further, the people in a familiar corporation have moved on, and those POCOs that were a reliable source of passive income are suddenly taxation hell. In episode 80, we work through the mire of change and make the transition back into game a little less complex. Welcome back to Eve, and welcome back to the High Drag Eve Online Podcast!

In typical times, we would be experiencing a post Fanfest drought of information, while simultaneously coming down off of our hype “High”. But these are not typical times. Thanks to the release of the Citadels, as well as a clear road map as to whats coming further down the road, we can enjoy an endless supply of content (Both in game, and in the meta).

In this episode we discuss:

The o7 Show
Daily Opportunities (And the skill points associated with them)
Citadels

I couldn’t bring myself to name this Eve Online Podcast Episode anything more than what it is. Player versus Player is the only content; no industry, no Meta, just conflict on a violent level on multiple scales. As an added bonus, Zao Amadues is back (and better / bearded than ever).
