Flying solo, not something for me

In the past few months (give or take 6-7) I've been making ISK and spending ISK. Mostly on industry related things and fuel. Due to a certain program called jEvEAssets I can track how much I earned, how much items I have in my hangars, how much all of it is worth according to Jita etc. etc.

This is great to make conclusions on how well or how bad you're doing. Me, I've been doing badly according to this. Not because I'm making a loss, but more due to the fact that I'm not making a profit either.

This is entirely my own fault and I know it. I only log in a few times a week to buy stuff and then don't use them. I have Battleships both faction and normal ones lying around in hangars that I never even flown except for getting them to a certain system. 

My manufacturing, the exact same thing. Where I make a slight profit due to what I make. I "lose" it because of me having to fuel my POS. In general, I have been stuck on 30b since March-April.

All of this, is mostly due to the fact that I don't have an actual reason to log in more. Other than those 5 minutes I feel like doing it. And this in turn, can be traced back to the fact that I'm playing solo. 

In previous blogs I talked about searching for a corporation. But it's not really working out too well. Also due to the fact that I don't actually feel like logging in and searching for the right one. I'm just hoping that it will get thrown in my lap.

I dislike solo playing. I started up another well-known MMO again because a friend of mine asked me to play it with him to start again on a new server. The only reason I did this is because he asked me to. It's a shame he never got into EvE the way I did.

I know for a fact that once I find a corporation, a bunch of people that aren't too serious about themselves, I'll have reasons to log into the game. And once that happens, I'll see my capital go up again.

I just need to find them first.

Stay tuned o7

  1. Try flying with Bombers Bar sometime. They're not too serious, have a lot of fun and you don't even have to join a corporation to fly with them.

    1. I was actually subbed to them once, but for some reason every time something was going on, I didn't get any answers in the chat channel so I just dropped it.. Maybe I should look into it again.

    2. They don't talk about ongoing fleet ops in the public chat channel. You have to "X" up to get a invite to fleet and then ask in fleet.

    3. I know, it was mostly just me asking questions since I had no idea what was going on. Did join one roam but didn't happen too much in it.

      And mostly want to join a corporation/channel to make some friends to do things with. Even been thinking about just tearing down my POS and joining an indy corporation so I can help others/get some bigger projects going

  2. A good corp is very difficult to find, one that fits yours playing style and you for theirs. There are so many bad corps around. I was lucky and found one a few years back that ticks all my boxes, saying that I still cannot see to make a profit.
