What about fixing things, and making the UI more user and noob friendly? Like making rclick menus consistent (same rclick options in both market tabs, on characters on showinfo, context menu, whatever), making the logical (no me/pe/copy/etc options for BPCs, ever seen confused noobs?), doubleclicking on your own orders is not selling/buying but bumping, such things i call "user experience". Also, what about that new manufacturing interface we've been hearing about? And what about the mail window always shrinking the maillist to a few pixels so we _always_ have to resize it? And the chat windows blackening out when we click around the bottom of their tab? What about the things like the ragnarok BPO requires launcher parts but the ship has no launcher hardpoints? What about the *ugh* role "bitfield" system? Are any of the stuff that actually annoy us and ruining our "user experience" going to be fixed?
Looks like a post that also belongs on the little things threadBig smile Please add some tabs so the devs will respond to all your issues.
I have written it down many times, they never respond. If it was their propose to make our everyday ingame life as hard as it can be. Sometimes they fix a little thing. Then the next tiniest patch within 2 weeks breaks the fix, and they don't even notice it. Regressions ftw.
You may have been absent for the last year or so, during which time literally hundreds of similar smaller issues have been addressed properly.

They can't fix everything at once, it has to be one step at a time, and frankly the issues they have already addressed were a lot more pressing than those you listed.

The person that suggested listing those in the appropriate thread was correct. They are starting a newer, more up to date list and your issues would actually get looked at in there... as they would actually pertain to the topic at hand.
And if I may recommend a few devblogs on that subject from the last year, written by CCP karkur and CCP Punkturis:

U and I - Our Little Improvements Together
U and I – Our Little Improvements Together V2
Little improvements: Making the world a little better

I like some things in the upcoming expansion, others not, but we will see.

Can we PLEASE get moveme bots on the test servers. This cannot be a hard task and it is superannoying when players make time free to test your stuff and then wait in vain for hours for someone to log in and move them.

Also, can we get a link to highres of that picture in your blog ? pretty please Blink

That's a big letdown. Why would you show us this great view if we don't get to have it???

Guys.. Err Dear CCP. I enjoyed this game a lot but you must stop post blogs about everything. Coz next time you will be posting post about post posting.. You are starting to be similar to apple. "We added 300 things" see this 32 pixels icon ? It's our new awesome icon. You are making too much noise about nothing.. Who cares who is Team super über pony ? I really don't care. Please..

Perhaps you don't.

Fair enough... don't feel obligated to read Dev Blogs of this nature then.

The rest of us have pressed CCP for more transparency on who is working on what for these expansions, and CCP has graciously started making that information available to us on a regular basis.

I'm sorry it's not your cup of tea, but for many of us (especially those that have closely followed the development of this game and the team responsible for it for the better part of a decade) it is pertinent information.

I would strongly suspect it is from a scene in an upcoming trailer, but I could well be wrong on that one.

That would be handy, yes, but if you are waiting for hours why not simply just take a few minutes and fly there yourself?

I could make 30 jumps...or I could go out and take a stroll in the sun. The decision was not hard.

This shipyard picture. It's awesome!

When are we going to see it in game?! This is how Incarna should have looked like in the first place...... Seriously, the sense of scale is amazing.

The Retribution is a very big expansion, even though there is no "theme feature" or "Jesus" feature like some people call it (of course there is the "Jesus" feature in Retribution! It's called DUST 514). This post does not show even the tip of the iceberg ;-)

BTW, I'm looking forward to the Micro Jump Drive. A must have on black ops to escape accidential **** ups :P :-)

Since it isn't mentioned anywhere, I assume it won't happen for this release, but is there any ETA for V3'ing of capital hulls?

The cap ships of eve look terribly dated when compared to the sub caps, and with the constant updates of V3'ed ships being released over the last year, it would just seem natural that this procjet would continue with the comming releases. (Just bringing it up to make sure you're not forgetting it P)

When you get moved to the 6-C system on Duality the "nullsec" music is playing ans has a nice dark theme.
I almost overheard it because I recently have clicked the "play" button on the jukebox to play the good lod EVE music and feel nostalgic. Good old days.

I can hardly wait for the 4th of December to come and with it the largest expansion since Trinity as far as I recall.

Oh and since its Halloween today, I promise something scary for Retribution,
the patch notes will at least be two pages long to read, muahahahahahaha.

Eve Minions is recruiting.

This is the law of ship progression!
