I returned a bit after few years (like 8) to spin my ships around in hangar, melt some rats, check how reworked lvl4 missions are, play some jukebox music and how many Sacriliges I can build.
So quick and fast feedback. I’ll complain and i’ll YELL where appropriate.
The Agency is nice, helped me a bit to find everything (I guess it’s also at least something for new players?)
UI is (still) ■■■■, what’s with skill popups?! (luckily I have most skills and popups are rare, but wtf is that).
Overview is same as in 2008. Thank god for Z-S Overview being alive.
Missions are same as in 2008-12. I don’t see difference. There was rework planned 10 years ago afaik, only difference I saw is no Overseer loot in worlds colide. ^^
Love ‘new’ rockets and missles (i think that’s from 2012-14is…)
Some interesting new ships, but on first glance Triglavian hulls look bit P2W/Op (I guess price balances them out).
Alpha clones, nice concept, bit to limited. If at least tutorials for new people would hold up it would be fine. Which they don’t, same tutorial disaster as 10 years ago, but now it has 2 links in Agency! Woo. It’s up to community to teach newbros.
Abyssal Filament thingie is cool.
Gatecamps are still there on every 0.4-0.5.
Simulated Fit kinda works, but still doesn’t come even close to 12 year old EFT (or Pyfa)
Jukebox is gone -.-
And now for glory of AMARR. Devs, WTF DID YOU DO TO LASERS! And artillery for that matter.
Do you even have a sound department? Or are they busy selling skins?
Lasers go “Phrrrfffhrrrrfhfhfhrrhhhhh” what is this sound of a tearing speaker membrane!
If you replace that sound with someone saying “Pew Pew Pew Lazers Pew” you’ll improve it few times over! Horrible.
Artillery sounds like wet firecracker instead howitzer. Blasters/Rails I don’t know but I can guess it’s from 1920 recorded on first generation gramophone plate also. AC 800s sounded kinda ok (NPC, AC Machariels).
I guess I need to immerse myself and turn all ‘space’ sounds off. Geez. Do a SFX rework pass please.
And give Amarr ships new laser tech that works like disruptor, just with EM/thermal profile. 1 Module - takes 2-4 high slots. (in 12 years, no new weapons to fit on ships, wow). Ty.
