EVE: All change

I think my daughter thought I’d lost my mind last night when I asked her what she thought about moving to a new Corp, but there was a method to my madness for a change. I originally set up my one-man-band Corp to give me a chance to play with the game mechanics as well as give me the use of multiple hangars and wallets for organising the industrial side of things. Having Lottie join me in-game gave me experience in configuring Corp roles and permissions while also giving her a boost up in terms of access to cheap basic gear and ships.
Recently though I’ve been back in touch with a guy who used to tabletop game with a bunch of us about 20 years ago and he mentioned he was getting back into EVE and looking to set up a new Corp – was I interested?
I’d originally dropped out of doing most EVE Corp stuff due to the demands of the real world but with things being more stable now, and hearing a lot of good practice talked I thought “why not?” The only sticking point was not wanting to leave my daughter hanging.
Now online gaming can be a minefield at the best of times, and EVE can be a veritable scorpion pit, but I think she’s mature and confident enough to handle adolescent smack talk and the insanity of Corp chat channels, and thrive with the new game opportunities. So the three of us had a conversation and no one shrivelled up and died. As a result I’m winding up my little Corp and we’re relocating from Gallente hi-sec to Lonetrek to hook up with this new bunch. Looking forward to it.
