I have been around for a long time and I love EVE, but that’s not to say that EVE and I don’t have a little tiff every now and then. Everyone finds fault with their spouse and it’s always the little things that irk the most.
These are mine:
When I am changing a shortcut in the settings I don’t want EVE to argue with me because she has a default function mapped there. I don’t want to have to find that shortcut in order to remove it before I can map the one I want. Can you make it simply ask if I want to replace it?
I love new ships in the game, it’s great fun to jump into them, but for the love of God can we please have the default setting in Overview for new ship types introduced set to VISIBLE rather than INVISIBLE? I hate being attacked by invisible ships on patch day.
When I jump out of my ship in station and want to move to another I don’t want to face the hard wall of ‘session change’. It’s a ridiculous mechanic to cover ‘our servers can’t cope’. Instead simply add a count down at the end of which the requested action is completed so I don’t have to keep right clicking to select “Activate Ship”. Once is enough.
Opportunities are great for new players to introduce them to the game. They are like herpes for us veterans - no matter how much we want rid of them they just keep coming back to irritate us. Suggest to disable them entirely by default for all characters over 10m SP.
The dreaded settings reset. Yes, I said it. I can’t even define how much rage is built up every time somebody over at CCP accidentally tips against the piece of code that causes all users to lose their beloved settings. It takes us hours to set them up again, often finding out things we forgot during a fleet fight or some other important task like mining rocks. It needs to come to an end. Make the settings extractable (so we can move the file for safe keeping) and allow sharing between all accounts on a single machine (Yes I want all my accounts to use the same shortcuts every time and would like an option to do so). I also would like to be able to save remotely for my accounts where I can select to download my saved settings to my client at any time. Yes, I know, storage space, but I explore you, please invest in an extra 1TB hard drive. I’ll even get it for you if need be.
These are my top 5 most irksome traits of the lovely EVE. So, tell me yours!
