Mainly I hope to kill shit. And make some money with the LP you get from it. I know there were some changes in that area. Some stuff that can only be got (or more easily got) through faction warfare? Datacores seem to ring a bell. Or perhaps it was the other way around, they used to be easier to get via faction warfare and now are harder? Fuck, I don't know. See, the changes to faction warfare are meaningless to me. I didn't really pay much attention to them, because it wasn't an area of the game I was involved with.
The Fancy Hats Corporation, the group I was with all through Hulkageddon V. Corelin and his Hats are going to be entering the faction warfare arena. On the Caldari/Amarr side. I plan on entering on the Gallente/Minmatar side.
I am Gallente. I guess I still have some roleplayer in me, because that's the main reason I'm joining that side of the battle. It's not only because my Amarr and Caldari standings are crap. Hell, if I was Caldari, I'd spend some time working my Caldari faction back up before joining. That's not the case, thankfully. Working any standings upwards is a pain in the ass.
So I have left The Fancy Hats Corporation. Sooner, rather than later. By request. Corelin sent me the following evemail today:
We're going to be doing our prep for FW pretty seriously soon. I know you have your friends in Gall FW and you are headed to join them, I do ask you to finish everything you need to in Fancy Hats in the next 24 hours so that we can do our own preparations more securely. Thank you for flying with us and we appreciate your efforts and spirit in the time you flew with Fancy Hats.I think that's hilarious. (Corelin is awesome as usual.) Internet spaceships are serious business. I am a potential spai. Corelin is probably right, though. Had I been hanging out with them throughout their prep, ship theory, and such as all that, I probably would have brought all the information I had straight to my new Gallente and Minmatar overseers. "Hans Jagerblitzen! Vordak Kallager! I have some juicy Caldari/Amarr information to share. Want to doff some hats?" Then we turn Fancy Hats into Tattered Hats. All is fair in internet spaceship war.
So, maybe soon I'll be fighting and killing Hats. More than likely, Hats will be killing me, but it's all fun all the same.
In a bunch of months, when I need a change from faction warfare, and The Fancy Hats have moved off to nullsec, I could be donning my dapper hat again. So, still friends, even while enemies for the next while.
