Question of the month: December 2012

This month’s question is holiday-oriented. Most people have New Years resolutions they set for themselves going into the new year. A fresh start, if you will. Interestingly, my main character in Eve Online, Red Neckromonger, has a skill points remap available on January 2nd. That’s kind of a New Years resolution in itself in the sense that I’ll be switching my attributes from Science to Gunnery. Oh I really hope CCP gives us a free remap. On to the question:

“Does your Eve Online character have a New Years resolution? Do you specifically use the beginning of the new year as a clean slate for a new direction, adventure or skill plan for your character or Corp? Or do you begin new goals around another kind of interval such as having a remap available?”

I’ve always had my remap available to me around the beginning of the year, so naturally that’s when I take my character in a new direction. 2012 was dedicated to Science…at least it was supposed to be. I spent the first couple months of 2012 maximizing my scanning skills for the upcoming w-space adventure. It was time well spent. After that I went into all different directions with my skill training.
To answer the question, I tend to plan big changes around my remap…which happens to be at the very beginning of the year. Although I do have a resolution for my Corp in 2013: I’d like to get all professional and open up some serious recruitment and actually have a solid direction. 2012 saw a w-space adventure that was fun while it lasted. Life got busy for me, so I had to pack it up. I’d like something a bit more sustainable for 2013 and beyond.
