Please wait a while and try again."
So Jita chat is back (yay) and it comes with new lag. Now we can chat, we just cant put up market orders.
Does anyone else remember when EvE was functional? It seems all the changes of late, from the window system to the chat system to everything else under the hood, all these changes that we’re supposed to make EvE better, faster and easier to write code for, have done nothing but bring lag and remove functionality and break features. The agency screen is slow as anything I’ve seen. You can’t find agents, imagine that. There is no voice chat now so we have to use 3rd party tools and chat itself has been broken ever since it was shifted to 3rd party servers. And just opening the industry screen is about as fun as watching grass grow. I thought these we’re all improvements? Now the market is lagged as well. I have only ever seen market orders lag during a reboot after an update and then only because the servers were actually shutting down. Why is EvE falling apart? EvE looks better. Over the past couple years you added nifty new shaders and skins. Great! I didn’t realize how nice EvE could really look and it’s nice to have a great scene on the screen. It really looks good but nothing works anymore and no matter how good things look, if it does not work it cannot be played on. As best that I can tell, EvE has slowly been degrading since changes were made to the window system and has only slowed down and broken since while at the same time hoarding screen real estate. The industry window alone barely fits into a 720p screen now.
I’m left sitting here wondering if EvE will even be playable in 2 years because none of the big changes have done anything to improve or speed up the client or server. At least from this side of the screen. It’s just slower and broken.
/endrant I suppose but I hope they stop breaking the game and get on top of things. I don’t want to see EvE turn into an abandoned project that wasen’t kept up.
