New blog & why I love Lukka :)

Huzzah, new blog. Last winter I had started an OOC blog but closed it after a week or two because it became a little creepy when people I did not know started to discuss my IRL, taking snipets from it and pasting them in local.

So yeah, new blog with new rules. Mostly this will be just about EVE, but OOC. For you non-rpers, that means out of character. My original blog will still be in character, story form, or whatever.

A few people have asked why I have Lukka on my bio, and well, love him or hate him, I really don't care, I think he is great.

Okay, granted, he shows no mercy in game. He will shoot & pod anyone given the opportunity, myself included probably (if I gave him the chance :P). But, the thing is, why shouldn't he? His character is a pirate. Even if he doesn't RP per se, (yet, cause I'm so whining to get him to rp. It worked on Pred! Do not underestimate the power of my whine) he still is a pirate in game.

He is in low sec, usually in Amamake for god's sake, pirate haven. Why people go to Amamake and then emo out about getting sniped by a pirate is beyond me. EvE itself is a risky game. Low sec, even more so.

Anyhow, I met Lukka back when he started camping the 24th in Huola months ago. Of course Huola is my home system and I felt obligated to try to stop him. So for days, I'd get people to undock to guard the station from him. Counter camping. He found it amusing, I think.

During that time we started chatting in local. Sometimes I'd private convo him.

What I love about him is that he doesn't take the game serious.

When some people were harassing me in local, I complained to him and he made me realize that I was taking things entirely too serious and that I needed to back off and stop letting things get to me emotionally. He pointed out the obvious, basically. Sometimes I think we all need that, a reminder that it is just a game and that stupid little taunts from pubescent little boys shouldn't bother me at all. Not like they know me.

Anyhow. That is why I love Lukka.

Lukka has his own blog, check it out here.


  1. In real life, I find Lukka amusing. However, Kuan hates Lukka, but that's an RP thing. His blog cracks me up.

    But, even in real life--even though I find it funny that people take the game so seriously they have conniptions when podded by Lukka or when he whores--someone who derives real, genuine pleasure from other people's distress is still just a jerk.

    You can justify it as much as possible by saying it's just 1's and 0's, and only a game, but don't pretend you don't know you are making people really upset. And enjoying it.

    But still, he IS funny.

  2. Mhmyes, saying that something is "just a game" does cut both ways, even (or maybe especially) in a harsh game like EvE; and I think that debate will be with us as long as MMOs exist.

    At the same time, if people like Lukka didn't exist, somebody would have to invent them; for the very reason you (Shalee) mention.


  4. 2nd place... heh
