There are a lot of "meh" responses in this thread in regards to the upcoming "named' patch/expansion...

Do you feel that CCP is obligated to release exciting new content in accordance with their new 6 week release plan or is it sufficient that they merely tweak the current meta with statistic changes and add an occasional module here and there?

Do you get the impression that CCP is excited about their EVE Online product anymore, or do you think it's tapering down. I've heard that businesses in Iceland have long summer vacation periods, do you think this is the cause of a seeming lull in communication out of CCP?


No because the new expansion release plan is simply a advertising ploy.. that all.

All there doing is giving patch releases fancy names in a effort to mask the fact that they are ignoring what a significant percentage base of the player base are asking for.

As I have serious doubts about this entire "process" of 6 weeks releases, I have little expectation.

Fact of the matter is, major content will always be spaced out due to the time needed to create and implement, and minor crap will continue to come out in dribs and drabs -- just like has been happening for the last couple of years now.

Nothing has really changed.... CCP just has a new pretty workflow calendar hanging in the office... with more colour bars and cool little icons to give the staff something to point at and wonder "dafuq?".

And maybe they give one of the kids a box of crayons from time to time and let the kid fill in the timetable. Blink

Re the expansions, I'm not hyped but looking forward to seeing what comes out over the next few. The "Little Things" tend to please me more than new stuff or feature content anyway. Despite the awesome trailer, the notion of building stargates and opening up new space got a bit of a 'meh' response from me. Whereas something relatively minor, such as adding logis to killmails would definitely make me clap my paws in joy. Although it'd probably generate some whining/sneering from others. v0v it's hard to please everybody all the time.

Player preference/inclination/location/affiliation (and possibly age) affect their enthusiasm for expansion themes. There is a generally negative tone at the moment on the forums and news sites, but I'm not sure that represents ingame attitudes perfectly. There's also a fair bit of misery rubbing off on those who haven't really formed an opinion but tend to follow the more vocal.

Now, maybe, since the name of the update is Hyperion, that the actual ship called Hyperion can get a visible drone bay?


Out of curiosity, what are Hyperions used for these days? I very rarely see one in the wild.

Given the existing lore for this game, be glad that we have "half arsed crap done by a player". I don't think that "grand epic space story" is within CCP's capabilities.

I have an alt specifically trained for them (per the Mastery tabs) and getting very good results even with less than 5 million SP. It's a tanking monster.

For PVP it suffers from the same fate as other battleships that do the same job a little better so you probably don't see them die in a fire much. The fit that inspired me (thanks to Dracvlad) is a PVP fit and my noob alt with less than 3M SP was running level 4s with a PVP fit and still is since March. Admittedly the "damage as tank" model where delivering the spank is a higher priority makes the Megathron the go to ship for more brutal face-melting brawling while the Hyperion can sustain more damage and fight at a distance with its generous drone bay.

I have not seen any fleet doctrines with the Hyperion and don't know but I suspect there's a good reason for that close to my presumptions about the mega and what we have seen with the Domi thus far. But a well-fit Hyperion with the right skills, from my experience, is one heck of a good ship.

Annnnnnd that is NOT how you tank a Hyperion.

That's making my head hurt. Good God. Where's Gunny (R. Lee Ermey) when you need him? That fitting needs a Marine Corp style dressing down.

Its getting a slight nerf actually. Tracking bonus going from 7.5% to 5% per level.

tha'ts just their first proposal and first pass, probably the nerf bat will be weighted more.

I still think that the ishtar should have its bandwidth lowered to 124.9mhz.

I think that we can all agree that no matter what will be included with Hyperion, it will be another stunning CCP NakedMan masterpiece.
