New Eden gets invaded by Triglavians now.
They can be dangerous for the unwary.
With certain filaments you can get from data sites you can also raid their home space. “The Abyss” and get away with loot you need to build their ships.
Triglavian ships got introduced.
There are NPC mining fleets in asteroid belts. If you have bad standings to them, they will warp out an call in a response fleet which can be very tough to escape from as they bring tackle, e-war and logistics ships.
We have citadels, refineries and engineering complexes now who replaced the player built outposts in null and taken over lots of the functionality of a POS.
Exploration cans don’t drop a bunch of drifting stuff you have to chase after, you can just loot them now.
There have been made some changes to captials and introduced faction caps and Force Auxillary often called “FAX” as dedicated capital logistics platform. Carriers can’t use a triage module anymore. NSA locks them in place for it’s cycle time too.
There are XL citadels called Keepstars where even Titan and Supers can dock up.
With citadels came Asset Safety that transfers your stuff you have in a citadel to the nearest npc station in lowsec (if it was in null.) in case the structure dies while you are AFK.
You can no longer use Warp core stabs and Ventures in faction warfare sites.
Third-Party gambling sites like Somber Blink and I Want ISK where shut down a few years ago.
Now just recently CCP has introduced their own feature called “Hypernet Relay” where you can make your own raffles. (some of the big assets from Asset Safety are on there)
1 PLEX was converted to 500 PLEX.
You can buy skins for your ships now in the NES.
We have killmarks on ships for the one dealing the last blow.
New module called Assault Damage Control giving huge resists to the ship activating it for a couple seconds. Only fits to Assault Frigates and HACs.
There are only four Interceptor immune to bubbles anymore. (Claw, Raptor, Tanaris and Crusader lost nullification)
There is a new interface for agent missions and such called “The Agency”.
Battleships, Battlecruiser and Cruisers got a nice warp speed buff.
Bookmarks can be shared with Access Lists now.
Rorquals are actively mining in belts now with expensive drones.
Command Destroyers got intorduced.
There is no off-grid-boosting anymore.
That was just things from the top of my head.
Woud recommend https://updates.eveonline.com for more info. It only goes back until early mid 2015, but should give a good idea.
