CSM 14 Q3 2019 Minutes...

This week, I sat down and worked my way from the start to the finish of the published CSM 14 Q3 2019 minutes.  I think this is the first time in the entirety of the nine years I've had an EVE account, that I actually read the entire document.

I was searching for some glimmer of a clue that CCP has a plan or glimmer of a plan for what they want to make EVE into.  The closest I got to that was on page 39, with:

"Aryth says that CCP Seagull had a vision but right now CCP seems to be throwing things at a wall and seeing what sticks. "

That pretty much sums up the way that I've been feeling this year.  The torrent of skill points for logging in and playing have not helped.  In fact, if anything, these events have deepened my despair that there is a future in EVE Online for a "Lone Wolf" player style.

Therefore, I have cancelled all my accounts and as their time expires, I will just disappear.  I doubt I'll completely walk away, but the game is not worth paying for.  I'll play the alpha level game - it is just as "rewarding" as the omega level game, and does not cost me anything other than the time I throw at it.

No, you can't have my stuff.  CCP wants money out of the economy, so I'll just lock it all away as insurance against some future time.  Who knows, CCP might come to their senses and find a direction that includes something (new and challenging) for Lone Wolves to do.  If that happens, I'll at least come back to try it.

In the meantime - if you are staying, I wish you all the best.
