I’d like to see us be able to exit our pods in station, walk around, view the lore and read about it, visit friends, and see the trophies of their accomplishments. One thing WoW does better than EVE is allow for in-game comparisons.
Sure, I can wear the lab coats, ball caps, T-shirts, and other accoutrements of my achievements, but frankly a lot of it doesn’t fit the aesthetic I’m going for. WoW hands out titles for accomplishments, so you know that Player did a specific thing to get that title. They also have an in-game achievement system similar to badges here on the forums, and WoW players can compare their achievements with that of another player.
What I’d really like to see harkens back to the short-lived Microsoft Bob, for those who remember it. You could customize your “living space,” in a sense. I’d like to have a private cabin where I could hang my trophies and let my friends come to see them.
I’d like it if, when someone clicked on my profile, they could see my accomplishments. Of course, I realize some players wouldn’t want to share that info and it might be best if it came with a toggle option.
All in all, being able to leave the pod and see more of the station itself and exert some influence on the aesthetics of even a cabin would be nice. It would be cool if we could visit corporation and alliance headquarters in a similar way, to see the achievements our corps and alliances have made.
