Greetings pilots! I can get wordy, but I’ll try not to make this a TL/DR.
I’m CMDR Lex Taliones. I'm a 50-year-old casual gaming fart and general weirdo (Sci-Fi, tattoos, piercings, horror, art, other nerd pursuits and freakery...) I play PC & console games, but mainly console as I no longer have a high-end rig. Love & have been a loyal Xbox gamer since the first generation and that’s where I play ED. I joined Mobius after doing a Google search and reading mentions in a Steam forum about three years ago and started out well on MobiusXUS, but real life intervened and I stepped away. Came back again briefly and moved to MobiusXUS1, but had to put it down yet another time for the same reasons. I didn't have the time to commit due to family/life/work/marriage issues, etc.
Things have changed a bit, but my interest in ED hasn’t. I have separated (amicably) from my wife of 20+ years and moved into my own apartment. I still have a busy life and an odd work schedule (CST – Thursdays-thru-Sundays 7pm-6am, Mondays-Wed TBD at my new part time job), but I have ensured I have room to play ED regularly (on my HotasX and I bought a new 78” TV!). I’ve also made it a point to keep two Wednesdays free a month at least. Plus, I will be playing late nights on Mon-Tues. I’m really looking forward to being able to devote some real and regular play-time to ED and along with that I will enjoy it more with friends. So, here I am!
I chose PVE as it suits me better overall, but might try some PVP in the future .. not ruling it out. When I left, I had just started the “Road to Riches” path. Not sure if that’s still a valid thing or not, but I have a lot to relearn anyway. For all intents and purposes, I have to relearn the game anyway … so I’ll be full of annoying questions. To begin with I am going to do some reading/research and watch some videos before doing the tutorials again and trying to decide if I want to continue the RtR, or shift gears. Any advice, tips, links to resources is greatly appreciated! I’d really love to make some good friends I can play regularly with, not just because of the current worldwide isolation situation, but because I miss having online friends to meet regularly. Now that I live alone it’s more of an integral element. Besides, I need to justify the purchase of that new TV! So don’t hesitate to invite me to a group when I’m on ED, send me a friend request, or just chat with me and when I’m confident enough in my knowledge and abilities in ED I’d love to start playing in a group.
Thanks for reading and I hope to make new friends here.
