So I poked the sleeping beast a little over a week ago, wondering there the heck my fellow EVE bloggers got on to, and two of the ones I normally read have awakened from their slumber. ^_^
One of the best parts about EVE blogging is the fact that you can voice your opinion about the game and its denizens without having to worry much about that whole terms of service business with the EVE site. It’s no secret that the EVE forums have devolved into a total opinionated mess years ago, and a lot of people don’t go there for two big reasons: 1. the other people on the forums can be a bunch of fracking idiots, and 2. the forum rules are supremely restrictive.
Now the latter isn’t much of a surprise, and is by and large a result of the former. So it’s not much of a stretch to see the whole EVE forum community foof off to other places like Scrapheap Challenge, where free opinion can flow.
Kinda like blogs. 😀
Anyway, it’s a good thing to see some of the bloggers are back, because I think the game community needs that separate outlet of opinion and discussion.
