Think why EVE has hooked me. It's the journey of it. I never been an "end-game" player in my MMOs. Did years ago in WoW (pre BC) however my life as a "raider" was short. Even now in STO I don't find and game appealing and as I hit Admiral I already have plans for other alts.
I find I enjoy the journey and adventure that comes with the progression in a game. EVE really seems about that. No rush to end game.
So here is to the start of my journey in EVE. (and a screen shot of my destroyer)
