Miracle in New Eden

Extra! Extra! Read all about it !!!

"His Jolliness Santa Claus has been spotted in EVE yesterday as he was flying his un-nerfed Nano Sled. Some reports say the sled is of Amarr design, while others swear it is Gallente. The only thing that is absolutely sure is that a soon-to-be-stricken Curse resident has been given a new lease on life in order to be able to terrorize the 0.0 space lanes in the search of macro ratters and unbelievably stupid ship fittings !!!"

Yep, I am that Curse resident and thanks to two absolutely amazing players, Cozmik will be able to spend the long and cold winter nights finding extremely fun stuff to kill and leading troops to victory (hopefully!). Blackrain McMillan and Ga'len, please rise and take a very well deserved round of applause! You two were the personification of the Christmas spirit yesterday, and I cannot thank you enough for allowing me to stay just a little longer. I have no clue what will happen in April when all that new time runs out, but with weather getting better and online games getting slower as summer approaches it should hurt a lot less if I still have to take a break; yes, finances are this bad. I will be sticking to only Cozmik's account though but that is alright because it will simplify my EVE play time.

The weird thing though is that as happy as I am about being "saved", I was sort of looking forward to flying at Mach 1.2 50 feet off the deck (any faster and the plane wants to rip apart) or showing those Inner Sphere stravags the true might of Clan technology. Well, there's nothing keeping me from doing that once in a while, like after an op that went sour as those can happen, but this entire experience with EVE has given a new insight into it. We're not in this game for the ships or for the ISK, we're in it for the people. Those that are willing to help us go through thick and thin and would hurl themselves into Death's waiting arms for us, as well as those blocking the field expecting us to turn back in fear, but that suddenly become sandwich material - Goonswarm, I salute you and yesterday's hilarious fleet you sent us :))

So now I have some courrier contracts to cancel, some ships to refit, some buy orders to put up and some new stuff to get shipped out to 0.0. Whoever makes Stilettos in the Heimatar region, watch your sell orders closely because I'll be buying quite a few >:)

And to Rebellion Alliance, BoB, Goonswarm, Tenth Legion, White Core, Out Of Order, B.L.A.C.K., and whoever is not either of The Firm or Ushra'Khan, I have only one thing to say:

POINT !!! <:*)

Fly like it's the last time you will

So you've found the true meaning for both Christmas and EVE! I'm really happy for you!

Blackrain McMillan and Ga'len deserve Titans' worth in praise.

Man... I haven't heard a Battletech reference in ages. I used to read all the novels and I was huge into Clan lore.

Mate, when things get better for you, pass on the love to someone else who needs some help. Even pirates like to warm their hearts every now and again.

Happy Holidays to you and yours!!!
