My break was as suspected, tempory (aside from forum trollage). Liberty will not be bouncing straight back into the war and we may still yet wait till shiva hits. After our little debate recently on the forums, I decided to make some initiatives which I hope will be utilised by the people playing Eve.
I made a news announcement here
I hope you can put it to some use, or help me improve/change it to make it better for everyone.
A personal message to Amax and Russo
We've all made mistakes in the past. Myself especially, and I apologise for the rift that has come between us. Im in one of those inspirational moods, and hope we can wipe the slate clean and start again (just ease down on the abuse/swearing as a personal request and follow 'event rules' if we (the majority) agree to them.)
Shiva is coming and I hope the Third Age of this War is better for all of us.
I hope we can cooperate to make the war more fun for us all and not get to a point where we are 'sniping' at each other's standards or gamestyle that has been prevailent these past few months.
Thanks - Colin
btw - Im a very busy uni student again, so my power gaming glory days are over, but I hope in the time I can play, it will be better.
Welcome back Hakera you dirteh Minnie terrorist...
heh why am I not surprised.
Welcome back mate.
It just proves EVE is like a drug. You may go on the wagon but eventually the addiction will draw you back!
Good to see you back!
thanks - guys - im quite into taking breaks now as hard as they are. with a few more interesting games out there. i have more opportunities to keep me sane on those nights when the thesis on paleoclimatology and climate change as a result of anthropogenic influences has me tearing my hair out.
i hope the new changes are of some use - but if you have any ideas, feel free to post em.
heh other games and a life outside of EVE is a good thing
I spent last week without logging into EVE really at all... damn Rome Total War.
Very nice to see you are back Hak!
Heart warming, Hakera Thanks for the sentiments, and I'll be sure to relay them to any of AMAX who don't tend to read the PIE forums.
Yes, Eve is much like a drug. I wish I had done as you did, and merely took a step back, rather than delete Garreck in the hopes that I could stay away. But what can you do? Tom is coming along nicely and even new characters are fun to play.

Yeak, you poor soul. An interesting subject but one so full of what if's, maybe's, and unknowns that saying anything with any degree of certainty is almost impossible. How little we actually understand of the workings of our own planet is frankly staggering.
I'm no expert (currently doing an OU Degree in Natural Science) but if you ever need someone to bounce ideas off or do some proof reading feel free.
