"Holy CRAP!!! You are leaving?!?!?!"

As with many people, balancing your time between real life and your gaming character can be a bit challenging.  You want to spend time with your friends but you also need to ensure that your real life does not suffer.   It’s hard.  You feel torn between two worlds so to speak and there comes a time where you have to make some kind of change.

EVE Online is a game first and foremost.  It’s not meant to be the center of your life.  Yes, I know there are those who would disagree with me and that’s fair.  But for me, EVE Online has always been a game worthy of my attentions.

OMFG, I never thought Ga’len would leave the Neo Spartans!!!

In a nutshell, I was running logistics a great deal of the time along with the many responsibilities of alliance leadership.  Couple that with the desire for pew-pew and it became more than a game, it became a job and honestly, not a job I really wanted but one that needed to be done.  There were others that were helping, but it simply became the focus of my time when I was online.  I mean no disrespect to anyone, but if you give a mouse a cookie, he will want a glass of milk.  Sticking all the logistics work on a few people becomes quite the annoyance of those people.  They begin to resent it when they are trying to engage in some pew-pew and you are constantly nagged to move stuff.

I enjoy PvP.  It’s what I really enjoy.  I have a logistics alt to ensure that I can get supplies, including isk, when I need it.  Doing that for an entire alliance along with running the forums and the two killboards becomes a bit much.  Add to that the goals the alliance is setting for itself not being the same goals I have leads me to a crossroads.

Neo Spartans, I will miss you and I wish you the best of luck in the future.  They are one of the best groups of people I have had the honor of flying with and perhaps in the future I will return.  For now, I must go my own way and seek out fun along another path.  If you are looking for a pirate corp to make your home, I would take a look at Neo Spartans as I would recommend them any day.

If you are like me however, trying to curb an impulse to wander and have limited time online, then I guess we will see each other out there amongst the stars.

So, where will I end up?  I don’t know.  I could look at fixing my sec status and jump into Faction Warfare.  I could head out to 0.0 or I could just wander about.  Who knows.

I am The Wandering Druid of Tranquility.  It’s time to wander….see you out there!!!!
