There was an odd period of time about two weeks ago where everything seemed to die. I would log in to find scarcely anyone on that I fly with, and wander for eons without finding many wartargets--just a stray here and there.
Even on the trade front, it was like some of my competitors just went MIA. But it was not that I suddenly didn't have to adjust my orders anymore, it was like people were stripping their stuff off the market and leaving.
So, what happened to the Amarr/Minmatar warfront?
There has been rumors that some Amarr corporations moved out of the area. Some people are playing Skyrim, or other games. And, of course, there's the real life needs of a New Year that have finally caught up with people.
Last night, my corpmate rightly described faction war as being 'stale.' It's boring, uneventful, and you can now visibly see the very life of it draining away as pilots find other ways to amuse themselves, or only half-heartedly put themselves up for a fight.
Last night I logged on to a few corpmates on and went roaming. I was so bored I logged 8 jumps out, not even bothering to fly home again.
"I'm not going to roam for three hours to find one frigate to kill."
So my question to you is, is it just USTZ faction war? Or is all of EVE kind of...sleepy these days?
