EVE Online – July Status Update

I wonder if everybody in the Bomber’s Bar discord is freaking out at the idea of Supers out ratting all over nullsec… I’m gonna go see.

Honestly, there was nothing of value there. “Some stuff has changed and some other vague stuff will change, oh but capitals can’t farm as easily as they used to we’ll fix that”. That’s pretty much the TL;DR.

I’d like to know this too. Are we talking about 1.3 million new accounts? Have you removed any accounts that share emails? Payment method?

Is it possible to come up with something with an alternative mode of bonus modules, so that you can distribute bonuses remotely, but for one character (especially for solo pvp), it is desirable, of course, that the bonuses be stronger than for the fleet. Thx.

TLDR; ■■■■■■■■ marketing speak and excuses for the terrible changes made to the game since Fall of 2018.

And the EVE Academy lacks so many things that are essential things for an academy. For instance:

Right now, the Academy is more like pre-school.

And why is this topic in Slow Mode? Do you want discussion and feedback or not?

Doesn’t look any better since my last post on the industry update forum

I really hope this isn’t coming too late… for the sake of the game.

It wasn’t just scarcity itself, but the ham-handed way in which things were done. Belts and rats, for example - almost an afterthought, and certainly devoid of creativity.

Incidentally, will be doing a pass on the recent Industry changes, that have decimated anything by T1 production? (See MER for details.)

Hardly. These anoms probably won’t allow cynos because they need to be gated or something to prevent subcaps from ratting there. And you probably won’t be able to warp inside to prevent shenanigans, like in event sites.

Honestly, Q4 2021 is far too little, far too late.

The rate at which we are going, the game is not going to last into Q4…

I think good we have a for sure end date now to look forward to. Ice, moon, gas compression will be a huge quality of life improvement especially with the new reactions required. Should give us more great discussions on the forum to share wine and cheese together.

Cheers,

EVE needs something new in the universe, not just small adjustments on the all known issues. Yes it’s great job that you CCP want to make EVE more healthier for all veterans, and especially to attract new players, but as a player for this game for 4 years, I want to see something new, something that can make me feel I live another life, not just log in a game.

We just got something new. It’s called Pochven and it’s a smashing success. :innocent:

@CCP_Dopamine most of us are excited to hear from you and stoked about the possibilities of all the things you mentioned.

Thanks for giving us some perspective and insight into the future.

We don’t need another sandbox, we need new toys to play with in the sandbox we already have.

Scarcity kind of killed the game for me, changing scarcity after I am no longer playing is rather like closing the stable door after the horse has bolted. I played to relax and have fun, not to feed into some self flagellation because devs think people are not playing the game they way they wanted them to. The manufacturing changes to feed the market game or the market game to feed manufacturing, boring outside of the null power block manufactures and marketeers.

Sounds decent. Could we please get -

Upgrades for gas harvesting. Kinda crazy we don’t have them.

A small (frigate or destroyer sized) boosting ship for gas huffing. This could be done by adding more high slots to the prospect along with bonuses. You would of course have to make harvesters take a slot so you couldn’t just fit an excessive amount of them. Or an entirely new ship that can boost with bonuses and harvest gas but not something big and slow like a porpoise or orca. Small and quick is the key here.

A dedicated salvage ship that is smaller and quick. Frigate size would be great. I know you can use a catalyst or ect ect but they’re slow and fail to much which is annoying. The noctis is cool and all but insanely slow to move around and frustrating to use.

These are some of the things I’ve found myself wishing for while harvesting wh gas. I would like to salvage wrecks but using a noctis is not an option because it’s slow and we don’t need that much room for salvaged stuff. Plus it would be cool to have a quick ninja salvaging ship for war areas. A smaller boosting ship even if limited to t1 boosts would be great for productivity.

I mean we all know when @CCP_Rattati is involved any mention of “balance” really means “nerf” so they will definitely be nerfing mining ships in the next quadrant.

Rorqual and Orcas will definitely have their mining ability completely removed.
