O. Q. I. Part 2: The Eicero Mystery
It’s been brought to my attention since the original posting of “Operation Questionable Intelligence” that Eicero, the loose-walleted, intel-hungry protagonist no longer exists in the world of Eve.
Actually, the anonymous tipster called out my accountability by suggesting that Eicero never did exist as a character and that my story was made up. This pissed me off a little, so I dug around for proof. Indeed, “Eicero” is no longer a searchable character in-game. However, he did exist at one point.
Ladies and gentleman of the jury, I present exhibit A (links to follow, I’m on a train on an iPhone):
So, my integrity intact, I move on to my next concern. Eicero, I sincerely hope your decision to close down your character had nothing to do with this blog or me calling you out. I mean that. We all do stupid things in Eve, especially while flying intoxicated. My intent was to have a laugh, albeit at your expense, but it was not my intention to force you to quit the game.
Eve is ruthless, and we all get sand kicked in our face sometimes. My hope is, that you brush yourself off, rinse put your mouth, and come back for more. Me being a manipulative and lying dick is no reason to quit the game.
So here’s my offer. Eicero, if I was the cause of you *leaving the game*, I’d like you to come back. To encourage you to do so, I’ll even go in half on a 30 day pilots liscence if you do. THAT’S how much I don’t want you to quit over this. Email me, let’s talk.
