Well last night was patch night, so I wasn't counting on logging into EVE. As with any patch deployment, I set up a long skill training; in this case Production Efficiency to level 4, which will finish Sunday early morning. So there's no worries there.
But I did think I was going to be able to login tonight and witness a red moon rising and the empires coming into conflict.
Heck, who was I kidding. As in any major patching, there are always some unforeseen problems and the RMR patch was no exception. As long as the downtime does not last passed Sunday, I can't really complain. And I know the boyz from CCP are doing all their best, despite all the difficulties they may be facing. I've tried logging in a few times tonight, but after manually patching the EVE client, which went smoothly, all I got to see of Red Moon Rising was the client GUI updates pictured here for your enjoyment.
I'll try again tomorrow morning before going off to work, just to give myself a glimpse of what to expect over the week-end. Though I won't have as much time to play as I originally had planned. It's the Xmas Holidays and we'll be pretty busy with parties and family & friends visits over the next few weeks.
But I've planned a few full days of EVE in between Xmas and New Years, so I can't complain. Will have lots to do, if I want to get myself some of those new ships that will be available with RMR!
Man, I can't wait!!
