I played it hard core for a couple years with Goonfleet, and damn it was fun. It just turned into a second job (albeit one which I enjoyed immensely) and was interfering with other things I wanted to do in my life.
When I quit I did sell one of my 2 mains, a carrier pilot, for $650 which was nice. But I still have my "main" main which is a uber-battleship pilot a hop/skip/jump from dreads.
I do wonder how much has changed in the 4 years since I quit, but I just don't have the time to revisit it right now.
