“This Week in EVE” looks different(maybe better) now.


(Farr Arrow) #4

Thanks for all the hard work that so many at CCP obviously did in creating the new forums that everyone can now enjoy. And for providing such a massively fantastic Eve universe for anyone to travel around in to anywhere we choose and do anything that we want to, limited only by our imagination and by our own individual abilities. Thanks CCP, you all are the greatest

Looks like we’ll have a busy few weeks with everything that is dropping on sisi at the moment.

I decided that it is time to change the format up a bit and make it more accessible (while not losing the core part).

Also, with the new forums it is also much easier to see which links have been clicked most and thus determining what kind of content is most popular and what things are not really of interest to anyone.

Of course it is always good to see your feedback:

  • What do you want to see more?
  • What can be skipped?
  • General comments and feedback

How will skillpoints be calculated? At atributes from pause or present atributes? I lost +3 set after some time from pause so I don’t know how many SP I’ll get :slight_smile:


(Rain6637) #17

you do quite a bit of work with these updates already. If you’re asking though what I really like about dev posts is image headers for different topics. Cool pictures make me want to click more.
