I love Eve it’s a unique game that explores space in a very unique and complex way.
But…as lovely as it is, it lacks something, I call it Blizzard sindroame.
When you know you had something great and you are afraid to push it further.
The base game of Eve for quite a while now is outdated. We all appreciate the event’s, expansion’s, and a new ship once in a blue moon, but…the fact is that the base game is mostly the same since launch.
- Lack of ship variety. Personally I was very disappointed when I saw that Apch and Paladin was the exact same, Raven and Golem and so on, it felt like a lack of interest. Slap a color or two and done, a brand new ship, it feels cheep and lazy.
Skins managed to release a bit this overwhelming blandness. But in my opinion that is not enough for a game that has come out so long ago.
Maybe a frame sistem could change this.
You buy a frame that has the capability to suport a ship’s systems. And make the frames look different but when you apply the ship’s sub system, the name of the frame changes to that subframe name.
Something like the T3 ships. The first time I fell in love with EVE was when I saw the way a Strategic Cruiser could look based on the subsystems. THAT IS AMAZING !!! Please do more of that.
That was such an ingenious approach. If we had that for every ship…I bet we would have more players, 100%.
Lack of freshness for the mission agent’s. From T1 to T5. It feels so robotic, interactions with the agents feels like you open a notepad and check the info, close it. Open the notepad and complete that request. It feels lazy and rushed. (Freelancer had a better system and it’s an old forgotten game).we didn’t have a level of technology that allowed us to do more stuff.
A visual character with voice acting would be amazing.
We need fresh blood, I would like to a better economy with many more players, have them open yellow cans :)).
A friendlier player start would be great. BUT you can’t have it with the current outdated systems.
Maybe…just maybe an UE5 migration would do the trick. Yes I Know… it’s IMPOSSIBLE it will never happen you can’t because…bla bla bla bla. Ok but something needs to be done. Most of the players in EVE are veterans, people that have a great connection with a corp or a friend and the occasional new player, who feel lost after a few days.
This video portrays exactly how I feel abut CCP right now:
I don’t think there is a lack of imagination for the future of EVE, but it feels like someone in a position of leadership is holding back on changes.
This being said, I will still continue to activate and then quit EVE, again and again. I am a 2010 player and I hope to see EVE in my 60’s.
