I don't believe in making New Year's Resolutions out here in the real world. They are a tarp I refuse to fall into. Plus, let's face it, you really should be trying to improve yourself each and every day, not just once a year. But, this is Eve, and writing a new year's resolution post is a lazy way to fill space.
So here are some of my New Year Resolutions for Eve. Year 2015 or YC117.
Continue the fight to see Warp Core Stabilizers regulated to Transport Class Ships and Industrial Class Ships ONLY. They have no place on any other ship class and should be immediately changed. Strangely I am not against ships, like the Venture, with them built into the function of the ship itself. I admit there is a time and place for them, on Transports and Industrial ships. But not in PvP.
Continue to strive to write and produce the world's greatest on-line blog about the world's greatest on-line game - Eve Online. As EVEOGANDA moves into its sixth full year I remain excited about sitting down each day to chronicle the journey of my characters, my personal journey, the mockery of those that deserve it, the adulation of those that have proven it, and the general promotion of Eve to the masses. Plus it is fun and it keeps my writing brain engaged.
Continue to try and build the greatest Alliance filled with the best best-in-class Corporations that New Eden has ever seen. As A Band Apart marches towards its first year anniversary we continue to work towards that goal by growing those corporations already a part of our family, attracting additional like-minded players and groups that fit into our philosophy, and providing exciting content to all players throughout the map. With arms reaching all corners of the map, ABA continues to influence and drive content in unexpected ways. We will strive to do even more in the coming year.
Try to provide excellence in everything I do. Both in-game and out, to promote Eve and help as many players as I can. I often fail at this goal, but I will continue to try my best to achieve better results in the coming year. My problem is often not saying "no" and taking on to many projects at once. I've tried to scale back, but it can be difficult not to want to help. This is one area where I continue to be challenged on a daily basis.
And lastly, but not leastly, in all things I shall continue to try to have fun. I've often said that when the fun left this game for me, then it would be time for me to leave. I'm still waiting for that to happen, because I am still having fun.
So much of that is because of my readers, my fellow players, those that I work with, fly with, strive with, and those that I come into contact with. So thank you for that.
This is going to be a great year.
