Obviously delays aren't ideal, but better delayed a bit, than not working right.

Woo! CSM XI!

Delayed by a week? I'm sure we can get over that.

Not convinced about the delay in the ability to set vulnerability per structures though, the absence of any kind of timeframe isn't reassuring...
Please do not underestimate the issue. Being able to play with people from all around the world is part of what makes EVE what it is. Without the ability to set custom vulnerability window you're just encouraging people from the different TZs to part ways, that's not cool...

A one week delay isn't too bad. And it's probably worth it to get a more polished system.

The delay is fine. Thanks for keeping us in the loop with these dev blogs. Big smile
Affirmative.

Although I currently don't play in sov null, the implementation of the new sov without hitting feature parity with the old sov is probably a bad thing, I would suggest delaying the implementation until you have the vulnerability per structure feature available.

Anything on super redesign?

I think the bit on the custom time windows is a little unclear. It can be read two ways.

- The custom time window feature will not ship in June when links begin to be able to impact stations but will be pushed out with the main feature in July if not before.

- The custom time window feature will be pushed after the July release at some point leaving either fixed windows or some kind of temporary band-aid in the meantime.

Obviously the second one would concern some people. Which is it?

Bolded the important part. What about timers in general? Will the alliance-wide timers still ship?

Posted about delaying the Sov changes, but still VERY relevant to the new overview icons. These new Overview icons do NOT meet that "quality level" you speak of.

Read the feedback CCP, please and don't release this tomorrow. Why is that same standard not used for something EVERY SINGLE PLAYER uses...not just Sov?

Not sure why you don't just delay the whole Aegis release by 7 days (or a bit longer if needed).

This is the centerpiece of the release after all.

I support the New Order and CODE. alliance. www.minerbumping.com

I say delay is good to get a good product. however maybe a longer delay is required as to ship a COMPLETE product?
the inability to set variable time zone vulnerabilities is a big hole and a tactical necessity.
Please do not ship until the whole thing works.

The alliance-wide default timers will be in the July sov release and will be used by all sov structures until we have the per-structure customization ready to go. You will actually be able to start pre-setting these alliance default timers once Carnyx is released tomorrow (so that your alliance will be ready to go on day one).

Is it just me, but I generally don't like being referred to as "the customer".

It came off a little impersonal.

Yaay!!!!

This feature is maybe the biggest mistake from CCP on FozzieSov.

With a single prime time window for every structure, as an attacker you can start harrassing a bigger group by attacking multiple structures.

This change brake that.

The range change of the prime time window from a fixed 4h to 18h scaled on the ADM is enough to allow peoples from all other the world to play the sov game.

This one is irrelevant, and it only help big groups.

It is the same kind of game design failure like in the past giving big cap force projection.

What is big is slow (-> cap force nerf)

This quote from Frederic II is wrong in Eve. You can play with custom PTW to be able to defend everything. Big big big mistake from CCP.

2 things:

1) It hurt my head to read that

2) You forgot the Jesse style intimidating pause before 'biatch'...

This.

How about whilst we wait for proper and complete product to be delivered, DT gets moved 4 hourrs later so us AUTZ players can get some decent continuous content?

It's all about how hot my mining lasers get.

If the intention of these new sov changes is to get players to interact (at the keyboard), you will really need to provide us a mechanic for dealing with cloaked campers. Otherwise, system indexes will simply be brought down by one person, logged in, and away from their keyboard for hours. Considering these indexes will determine conquest and defense of systems, cloaky campers will have a pretty major impact, considering they aren't actually doing anything other than being logged in.

Supposedly there is a structure coming out which will enable some sort of cloak hunting mechanic?

Which will come first, the new capture mechanics, or the structures?
