    I think we ruffled a few feathers in that regard as the people who joined around the time I did were as much PVP interested as PVE.

    Though there were some deficiencies with the old UI overall I prefer it.

    Me and a few others left OcUK because of the no PVP rule. We went and started up ourselves. I remember one of the first kills was a Blackbird in Mara. It was one of the only games that ever gave you that rush of a kill. I guess because if the attack went wrong, you'd end up loosing all your own gear instead of the other guy loosing his.

    I was in Test until last June and had spent 2 years with them but I got bored. I joined Karmafleet and then the game had lost all of it's excitement. I ended up giving away my main which had about 110m SP to a corp buddy and a few bill in ISK and bits I had stashed away. Sometimes I regret it but other times I feel like I was cut loose from the online world of internet spaceships and could focus more on the real world.

    Looked at the image and thought wtf is Sajen doing in a Vulture, she has absolutely no gunnery skills!
    Then remembered offgrid links :D - much prefer the rebalanced on grid stuff!

    I still get the PvP shakes now, even doing tournament fights on the test server my heart is pounding as fights start. lol

    That was when you could run links inside a POS FF as well :s

    I agree that links needed reworking but didn't like the direction they took with them - like many other changes they suddenly decide X is bad and anyone involved with X is bad and wrong and all changes are based around the worst case use of such as if that is the only dimension to it.

    I actually have a screenshot, the reason I took the screenshot actually, of the first fight I stopped getting the jitters and was remembering to overheat, etc.

    A good fight would still get my heart rate up like no other game but I never really got the jitters from that fight onwards.

    I won a ton of ISK on Blink TBH but even so once I get my head in the game my nerves calm down a lot thanks to many years of competitive FPS gaming, etc.

    Found a reproducible pattern for winning hah.

    I haven’t played EVE properly in years but I’d do a jig if the goons got what’s coming to them.

    Fully suspect it to be a cop-out of a war. Hopefully I'll be proved wrong, hopefully Goons will try and destroy the Trading Tower in Perimeter! :D

    If a full scale war breaks I think we're just going to try and catch stragglers in the main fleets whilst roaming. Could be fun :)
