Noone is running 3v3’s. Sat in que for 20 mins and nothing. I think it is a big mistake not letting randoms que up solo and putting people in teams. Don’t understand why this is NOT a feature. It would be awsome if you could que up alone and get matched with two other random people. I think it would improve the popularity a lot!
will corvette 5v5 allow t2 drones? if so then that pretty much makes the velator the only viable choice
I second this, with the addition of automatically putting you in a chat with your team that’d be great!
youll just lose if you go in random like that. Also people have been rolling into the ring their alts and would rig your team to lose if you get one of them.
My feedback is:
Ban all drugs completely.
Ban all implants, except the following:
Inherent Implants ‘Squire’ Power Grid Management EG-601
Inherent Implants ‘Squire’ Power Grid Management EG-602
Inherent Implants ‘Squire’ Power Grid Management EG-603
Zainou ‘Gypsy’ CPU Management EE-601
Zainou ‘Gypsy’ CPU Management EE-602
Zainou ‘Gypsy’ CPU Management EE-603
Forbid the multi boxing of alts. Enforce through some means not defined in this post.
No modules to exceed tech 2 in strength. No abyssal modules allowed.
That would exclude a lot of people from participating, since there were no 1v1 formats until now and event 6, only 1 free for all. I am fine by doing that in an FFA, but not in XvX formats, as long as all alts are in the same team.
This is going to happen from event 4 on. Also includes pirate implants.
Generally speaking, I dont like these restrictions, especially the module one. CCP should rather do an elo based leaderboard to give less experienced players and players with less time to play a realistic chance to get to the top 100. Even after that change, time is still the most important factor. ISK does not buy you pvp skills. From the old arena I remember cases where a 300 mil Orthrus blapped a 5b Ikitursa. And in the Destroyer FFA 4 cheap destroyers ganked a 5b Sunesis. So, the change CCP should do is to make an elo based leaderboard and not restrict modules.
If that should still happen, then there should be an alternative option which is unrestricted in terms of modules and implants. They should either bring back the old 1v1 arena, or take a look at Abyssal Hawk’s iteration here: Burner proving grounds as a replacement for the old 1v1 arena at the end of abyssal sites
Increasing loot value with increasing chance to get a fight sounds like a decent concept.
Also, from what I read on reddit and on DEV Streams, more and more players want a permanent 1v1 option.
What would also be great for events that are less popular like the Slicer 3v3, make it so, that if you spent 5 minutes in the queue, you get taken to an empty arena, with a 5 minute timer on the cache, just like in the old arena. If no one enters withing the next 5 minutes, you can take the loot and leave, otherwhise fight. Sitting in the queue for hours with no match sucks. This would also lurk people in that think they can get free loot, which should increase popularity.
in the <10 podcast you mentioned you are open for new ideas - battleship 2v2s or 3v3s could be very interesting just because of the frigate escape bay
I have an idea for less popular events:
What about making it so, that if you dont get matched after 3 minutes, you automatically enter an empty arena with the cache having a 5 minute timer on it? Just like the old proving grounds. Then people would enter just because they think they can get free loot from it and thus increasing the chance of a fight.
I know this matchmaking system brings back the first come is first to get the fight like the old arenas(which still need to come back or get replaced by the system I posted here), but sitting in queue for hours without getting matched up sucks.
This is a much needed addition to PVP content in EVE, but I would prefer to be able to select whether to do a 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 5v5, or FFA at any time rather than wait for specific days within a vast timeframe. I understand the desire to rotate the meta and keep things fresh, but not all of us have friends online to fly with at any given time. I, for one, would love the ability to solo when desired, or hop into a 2v2 with a trusted friend whenever I want, rather than being forced into a specific group size.
If I had the ability to do 1v1, 2v2, or FFA whenever I wanted, this would become one of the best features ever for EVE. PVPers would not have to roam around low or null looking for fights. Just my two cents, because honestly, the part I hate the most about EVE is the time wasted. Now I get to wait days or weeks before I get an event that I actually want to do.
You could easily rotate the meta while still giving options to the group size. For example, the meta might lock us into flying around rookie corvettes, but we could pick our group size freely. I’d much prefer that than the current system.
Alternatively, give us the ability to join the que no matter our fleet size, and to be matched up with others to create a full size fleet appropriate for the event. In this way, you’d solve your que problem and also allow pilots who do not have access to a large pool of friends to participate at any time.
From the feedback that I see so far on the event, there isn’t the population to have multiple formats unfortunately, let alone different group sizes.
So they indeed either have to agree on one format that will be the be-all-and-end-all of formats, or indeed do the thing of seasons where you have a rotation of formats.
This content is very very very bad, how come this content is still with a bad leaderboard based on win without counting any lost? What is this shitty ranking and shitty comps ? No competition only no life ranking!
CCP! bring back the old pit because this content completely sucks , could be compared to CCP skill at PVP, like FKing inexistant!
Stop building haft content, engage yourself and make great things, bring back removed content!
Your wrong, this content is not run by most of the old pit players. In fact, a lot of them stop playing EVE. We had a 365 day a year pit, replace by events with freaking bad formats.
- https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/749634622681382913/751447061500657854/unknown.png current average of all proving ground, only one name from the old pit. We aren’t running that shitty content. So no replacement at all for us.
And Why this content is always from friday to monday! WTF with you CCP!
- some players work on weekends, we also have a life out of EVE!
The Invasion’s supposed to hit its Zenith in Q3, right? I mean, that’s the big thing with the Quadrants, right? Things happen in their Quadrant… and the Zenith should be, you know, the real ‘OMG THIS IS IT!!!’ stuff. The real high-water mark. The climactic confrontation.
I’m only askin’ cuz there’s only 2 weeks left in Q3, and everything I’m seeing from the people actually doing the invasions is… straight up repetitive grinding, over and over again. Same stuff. No developments. Nothing actually interesting since Niarja.
A month ago.
Soooo… uhm… you guys have a plan, right? I know it’s not really fair to ask that of Dopamine, Convict, or Aurora, but Community Managers. Kinda ‘face tank the players’ right there in the job, alas.
So… y’know… I’m just curious. Will there actually be a ‘Zenith’ in Q3, or will Q4 be ‘EVEN ZENITHIER!!’, or some kind of anti-climactic slow trail-off of things? What’s the deal, guys? Mebbe ‘Q4: MAGNAVOX’? I dunno.
ccp having a plan and not just throwing darts at a wall to see what sticks would be new
Will there actually be a ‘Zenith’ in Q3
I can’t say whether or not it will be reached exactly within this quarter, but a ‘zenith’ is indeed being approached.
I can say no more - Any further information about what that means is left up to you all to discover.
The 3rd quadrant probably doesn’t end until October 13 - based on prior quadrants starting the 2nd Tuesday of the month. It will be interesting to see how we get a Zenith event plus player agency in the same package!
Since people can’t read title/subject, just pushing back this … to the bottom.
