Why invent some poorly simulated, symptomatically cliched, artificial psychosis?

Look at what capsuleers (and dusties) do (literally) every day and ignore the fact that there are players saying "it's just a game" behind those actions and tell me that there isn't already a psychosis associated with capsule-technologies...

I'm sure this has been included in the lyrics of an Annihilator song. Braindance or something?

Also, like it's been said, forcing capsuleers to keep their stats from degrading (and spending isk to do so) may have a very negative impact on the playerbase.

Still, there should be some other use for all those drugs stashed next to the Damsel... This could be it :P

Or, after supplying enough drugs and alcohol, your finally allowed to invite your exotic dancers you have accumulated into your CQ as live-ins.

A comment I'd recently overheard about how out-of-pod capsuleers must feel like amputees


You hear amputees talk about "phantom limbs"... I've always wondered: do out-of-pod capsuleers have a phantom pod?

another added bit of "reality" to the game, something I call "capsuleer psychosis."

Out of game, I am perfectly fine. Ingame, I'm paranoid of every neut, suspect people of being alts based on the vaguest of clues, feel unease undocking anything not meant to die in a fire and am incapable of trusting anyone but a handful of people who I've flown with more or less since the start. "Capsuleer psychosis" seems quite real to me already.

but basically what it would entail is that over time, capsuleers would begin to suffer mental disorders based on amount of time they spend in and out of pod.


I would think that the psychosis would be more to do with the multiple deaths they have rather than the time spent in and out of pods.

Pretty much this. "Capsuleer Psychosis" seems like a pretty decent in-game explanation for our antics.

Most EvE players I have met already seem to suffer developmental, cognitive and psychiatric disorder.

Capsuleer psychosis is a theme that goes throughout the EVE chronicles. All capsuleers are pretty much deranged, unbalanced, or alienated from society.

EVE fan fiction writers have taken it a step further by exploring the psychological effects of multiple deaths, multiple clonings, flawed transneural burnings, etc. Here's a link (and a plug) for some of the player-written stories. Check them out, some pretty amazing ideas there.

Yes now get off the radio!

I dont get what the issue is
This mighty body is my church. When I command your surrender, I speak with the 5 voices. When I make a plan to crush your resistance. It is with 10 hands. When I stare into your eyes and shatter your dreams. And break your heart. It is with 11 eyes! Nothing like me has ever come among you: Nothing will again. I will take you to a hell without exit or end. And there I will murder your ships! And make you crawl and beg! And die! Die! Die for cookies!

Whoopsey med time!
Agh Concord took my meds!
They WILL PAY!
With their confectionery sweets!
