Eve Online Will Not Beat Me: Action; Reaction; Farmhole

Hello space traveller,

I have been doing an awful lot recently. The world seems to have gone a little bit mad, so there has been ample time to play some space games and ample need to escape into experiences that make us feel good!

Eve has been doing that for me in spades and has taught me an awful lot about how the game needs to be played. One of my corpmates, Lane Davaham, said something to me that really stuck in my mind about playing Eve: “This game requires patience” – and that is so true. Eve is a game where you can spend a few days fighting fleet after fleet and feeling totally drained with all the content, but also a game where you need to spend weeks just letting the game tick away, training skills or waiting for a plan to come to fruition.

This lesson has been a really hard to take onboard, especially when I don’t have that much time to invest into the game. I resolved myself to stay casual since I’ve returned, but it’s difficult not to feel left out when your corp goes on weekend-long ops that you can’t take part in, but that’s the way it goes. I just have to be happy with being involved with the things I can take part in, and set up my Eve experience so I can get the most out of the time I am able to invest.

To that end, our little side-project is progressing decently; it’s a farmhole – which, in true Eve fashion, has been hit with problem after problem.

We asked around and ended up being able to form an agreement with the owner of an Astra in a wormhole that met our specifications, so we could stay there until we were up and running. The moment we moved in however, another corp, set up a Raitaru and have been reffing our structure ever since. They don’t seem to be very committed to the endeavour though, as we’ve beaten them back multiple times and they aren’t running a full-time eviction operation.

So for the time being, we’re looking for another farmhole while we wait to see if the situation changes in the meantime.

I am planning on starting a little podcast/stream when we do get the farmhole up and running, because I’m really curious to see if people want to listen to a bored Englishman/Frenchman/Serbian shit-talk for hours while Krabbing.

Stay tuned, there’s loads going on!
