I remember a time when Grandpa Bill didn't post on the forums, what a dark and hopeless time it was.

Now, more than ever, we need a dislike button.

You know what I remember? Learning skills.

God, **** learning skills.

Incredibly stupid and arbitrary. A needless roadblock. Not fun or interesting or even useful, just an advantage that the veterans held that they didn't want to give up. They wasted two months on needless bullshit, so that means you had to as well.

I remember everybody giving slippery slope arguments, demanding the removal of other arbitrary skills, or of implants. I remember the kicking and screaming that the game was turning to casualization and that the sky was falling.

And then it came around, and people got their SP back, and I no longer felt uncomfortable recommending the game to new players.

When thinking of most MMOs, there are often points in time where you can say "here's where they went bad, and that game is dead now". Honestly, Eve has been going for 10 years, and it's better than ever. Back in my day, things weren't better. They were rustier. They were uglier. They weren't as good. CCP deserves far more praise than they get. They're the only MMO company I can think of that have managed to make a game consistently better over a period of over ten years.

Except for Incarna, obviously. I mean Jesus Christ guys, what the **** were you doing?

I remember waking up in the middle of the night to train a new skill.

Having started in 2005, I never did that - whenever I knew a skill would finish in the middle of the night, I switched to a long skill and reenabled the one that would finish at night in the next morning before work (or anytime convenient for me).

But more on Topic, I remember where you had to switch to the regular Keyboard for the decimal sign because on most european Keyboards Settings, the one on the numeric pad didn't work - not so long ago actually, but that made my game sooo much more convient (no sarcasm).

I remember when Large Collidable Object was the most beautiful avi on Eve... still is

I remember when hulks roamed the belts of highsec like hungry cows. Or locusts.

I remember Hulkageddon. Pirate

I remember when wardecs were a lot cheaper.

I remember the epic cloud of Ospreys when someone thought they could dec Chribba and attack his POS.

I remember when the Crime & Punishment subforum was good- well, less bad.

Ah, fun times.

Things I should remember from long ago, I have long forgotten.

Old age (relatively speaking) comes to the fortunate.

I remember when the game launched, undocking with a smile and high hopes of conquering the universe only to get dusted and podded by m0o while undocking my newbie ship. Was no concord then and Null sec away from the action was safe sec.
