Out of all the interesting stuff Jester wrote about, I think my favorite were his takes on happenings at CCP and what they likely meant for the game. Now granted, I haven’t looked into how accurate those predictions ended up being (guess pretty accurate?), but I always came away from those posts with a better understanding behind the ‘why’, and a good glimpse into CCP and what they were doing.
The news that CCP Seagull got promoted makes me miss Jester. I need a post telling me what this means, whether its good or bad for EVE, and why it happened.
Couldn’t resist. :)
Nice internet win
Syncaine have you found any good replacements for Jester’s Trek that you personally prefer? I’ve been struggling to find a blog like Jester’s with the breadth of content he provided (ALOD’s, FOTW, politics, opinions, etc.).
I swing by a few EVE sites every now and then, but none of them have me coming back regularly, or have me reading every post.
Namamai is pretty cool. These days, however, Malcanis and Jester post on Failheap, where all the cool vets hang out.
ALOD’s, FOTW, politics and opinions can be found on themittani.com. Now, it’s a goon hosted site, but they have authors from all sides of the universe posting there. I think the quality is generally very good.
I too miss Jester. Still use his blogroll to look for news from his favorited sites, but it’s not the same.
It would be great for Jester to do a special blog on Crius. I believe he said in his parting post that he may come back and do the occasional special post. Maybe he could wait another month or so until we see the full fallout (or wait until the invention release gives null sec the same level of bonuses that Crius did). and then post his observations.
I am unsure that he would come back for bad news. He looked like he just was burned out of bad things happening to EVE. Also he took a lot of flak from the Erotica1 incident.
Once a hobby is no longer fun, it’s time for taking a long, long break.
