They were fixed, and fixed good...

Respectfully FoxFour I have to agree with the other people in this thread who said that they preferred the pre-rationalised names of modules, skills and guns. It gave the game a nice flavour.

Some people call it dumbing down, and some call it simplification.

I have played Eve exclusively for over 3 years. The reason I have played it in preference to any other game is actually its complexity and richness, which I like.

The one area I'd be grateful if you would look at is the hot-drop-preventing-small-roaming-fleet problem.

I'd love to roam lowsec and nullsec with a group of 5-7 friends, but every time we tried it we got hotdropped the moment we engaged anything.

This shuts the door to a whole area of fun gameplay. It's a real shame. I was hoping the new cyno blocker would help, but it's not the right tool for the job (cost, setup time etc).

Eve would be a better game if you could fix this.

Many thanks.

I preferred unique names for mods rather than the Upgraded / Limited / Experimental / Prototype scheme for Metas 1-4. Gives the game a nice feel. Ability to sort the market would fix a lot of problems with knowing offhand whether (for example) Arbalest launchers are better than Malkuth launchers. Sort by Meta, immediately see that T1 M0 launchers are at the top, followed by Malkuth, Limos, etc...

Also, why is this still stickied?

I notice a few blueprints currently have a mismatch between what they are named and what they produce:

6x2500mm Repeating Artillery I Blueprint produces 6x2500mm Repeating Cannon I
800mm Repeating Artillery I Blueprint produces 800mm Repeating Cannon I
Dual 650mm Repeating Artillery I Blueprint produces Dual 650mm Repeating Cannon I

I'll just add my voice to the crowd asking for non-camel-case names. "Autocannon" not "AutoCannon".

Is there any option of modifying the market search so that searching for "auto cannon" will list all items in the "autocannon" category, regardless of name? This way you can satisfy the base requirement (be able to find auto cannons available nearby) while not upsetting the folks who like the variety of item names (auto cannon, repeating cannon, machine gun).

Sorry I'm so late to the party though.

any chance of unstickying this thread??

T3's need to be versatile so no rigs are necessary ... they should not have OP dps and tank

ABC's should be T2, remove drone assist, separate HAM's and Torps range, -3 HS for droneboats

I'd be happier if the dual and quad barrels were replaced with some kind of defensive turret, like an anti-missile system or drone "anti-aircraft" gun - which can be used offensively at close ranges.

Changing the name to "multi-" is another option, rather than dual and quad, or 250mm autocannon array (for example).

+1, repeating artillery made sense. However it is not your fault that the average IQ of your player base is 65.

Every time you rename something like this you are destroying part of someone's creative dream and design.

It's like changing the color of the eyes of your neighbor's child so it matches the rest of the street's children.

Also I fly Minmatar and repeating artillery was, and always will be, intimidating and awesome. Stop.

I'm agreeing with whoever mentioned that the camelcase "AutoCannon"should just be changed to "Autocannon"

Petitioning to rename all large autocannons to "Carronades" in support of my Aubrey-Maturin roleplay. Also all minmatar ships should receive a 30% speed boost when tacking perpendicular to the solar wind.

Where the hell is the variety? huh? Different modules produced by different corps should have different names. sorry.

Why don't we put some solvent on this glue and unsticky this thread?
