What features can you think of, that you would rather have adjusted or disabled in game?
I can think of 2 examples from recent times, where a new feature gave some people headaches:
introducing the new scanning UI with all it’s sounds. While I personally find the new UI much more comfortable, the positioning probes sound was too much for me after some time.
A friend living in a wormhole absolutely hated the dscan sound because of the amount of times he had to hear it while simply checking dscan often.
Another friend of the same corp preferred dragging the size of probe formation with a mouse because it could be done lazily, using 1 hand instead of 2.
Thankfully at the time the old scanning UI could be turned back on and after some time, the secondary interfaces sound option slider was added.
the chat bubble. Just yesterday I participated in the SISI chat mass test and today someone asked me if I could still see the bubble, because oh my God he hates it so much. I thought “are the devs aware?”, so I went to forums, I could see no thread and good thing there’s the “Your topic is similar to…” because now I know there’s been at least 5 threads about it.
The point is naturally CCP wants to improve Eve but as we can see, some things aren’t being caught even on the test server. And while I can’t think of other game examples out of top of my head, I’m pretty sure I remember major rages of players in other games over changes that were other than balance changes. What I’m saying is, devs around the world make the same mistakes.
Why not make Eve better in this regard?
Can’t we simply have an option launched together with a new feature, to adjust or disable that feature?
