Ok, guys, I get that you’re doing this whole ‘celebrate the Federation’ thing, but these national holidays for the empires, highlighting them all, it’s all supposed to get people more hooked into the story, right?1
So, just out of curiosity, why the hell are the Triglavians celebrating the Federation? What the hell is this crap?
‘Hey, let’s do events all about the lore while we actively take a crap on the lore!!’
FFS, can you just do one of these without screwing ■■■■ up and insulting the people who actually do get involved in your setting? Please?
1. Yeah, I know the real reason is just to get people to login and buy crap, but you all talk up how ‘it’s about the story’ and ‘celebrating the empires’ and otherwise pandering your asses off to those of us who give a crap about that kind of thing. But this? This is insulting.
Not to mention that they could have done something akin to these crappy arenas in K-space with the old Frostline sites in planet athmosphere over Gallente planets. If only we had competent developers and not cheapskates ru(i)nning the show.
Yeah, we are. But there’s no reason they can’t have reskinned the Abyssal Arenas and made up some kind of ‘CONCORD arena filaments’ for these national events. Which art elements don’t they have? k-space rocks? The skybox for Yulai or Luminaire?
In a quadrant about the empires, after 2 full years of ‘look! More TRIGLAVIAN focus!’, is it really so much to ask to not shoehorn the Trigs in here, too?
Well, it is a challenge to adapt to this presentation, but it can be done.
Perhaps our diplomatic efforts were not entirely in vain!
The real test will be to see what transpires on other celebratory events.
Meanwhile, the New Eden Store will be offering a Federation Day SKIN sale from 15 - 22 June, giving pilots the chance to pick up all four Federation Day SKINS for 500 PLEX in the Federation Skin bundle.
