Yeah but I’m saying there’s a chain, and ultimately the devs are guided almost entirely by what product and UX guys decide - and is ok’d probably above even that if the changes are fundamental.
Devs don’t generally have much, if any input into that type of decision. I’d be absolutely terrified if devs were unilaterally changing something in my business without it being ok’d up the chain.
Read the room . There are dozens of people saying that this is a core part of how they use and play the game. Nobody wants to quit, but speaking for myself, it just feels like it compounds the way CCP have focused on rubbish like skins instead of making decisions that benefit players. You begin to wonder if it’s not even deliberately provoking anger.
If you don’t scan much, or only as a side-task, it probably doesn’t kill you. For those who explore, this is like learning to drive on the other side of the road. Sure, it’s not impossible, but it interferes with our routines and has no reasoning behind it. It’s not like it is an improvement, it’s just a completely arbitrary change.
