That said, our aim is to add decision-making – not tedium – and the compression update will reflect that.
And that is why the first iteration of compression in ships was nothing but a huge tedium click fest. Who should ever believe your words if your deeds speak an entirely different language?
more capital-oriented combat sites are on the horizon
More simple, uninspired and lazy modules to drop in space that don’t require any design effort from CCP? A few more words of what you exactly envision there would have been really important so that people can actually get a glimpse of what you are thinking and doing.
As the industry changes settle, the material requirements to build these ships to ensure they are both cost effective and replaceable will be reviewed.
And remove T1 BS and Faction/Pirate ships from this. They are not capitals and your idea of decoupling capitals from sub caps killed their production and viability. Or at the very least you ought to explain why cruisers and frigates or simple T1 BS need to use the same components that are used in capitals. You have again not done that.
Faction & pirate ship construction will be viable to undertake.
How? These ships are completely infeasible to build right now and have been for months. HOW are you going to change that?
We’d also like to thank CSM16, with whom we’ve been working with on these changes since August
You mean the CSM that you deliberately ignore every time you do something important and then only retroactively ask for advice or not at all? Who are you kidding with these hilarious statements that don’t hold true to your actions?
This also opens up possibilities for the future, especially as it pertains to dynamic distribution or future mining sites.
More details on this would have been nice to learn as well. You keep talking about this but nothing in particular ever transpires from your empty words. Is this going to be yet another 2 weeks Announce-IgnoreFeedback-Release thing like the Skill Window, Industry et al? What exactly do you have in mind? How are you going to do this if you have so far not shown that you can even manage a static system?
What about the removed asteroid belts? You claimed that ore availability has doubled across the cluster but 40% of the cluster is still without asteroid belts that could have been doubled.
Citadels play a critical role in New Eden
What was this paragraph about? You just recapped what people have been pointing out over the years and what you did to structures with ridiculous delay. If you don’t at least hint at planned changes for these why include this at all?
great strides have been made in the war against botting (as evidenced by the skyrocketing RMT ISK price)
Why are there no security dev blogs anymore?
In essence, thanks for this update. It’s yet another blog full of empty words and without anything substantive that would show that you are interested in turning EVE into an actually enjoyable place. At the very least you didn’t advertise skins this time
