But back OT. Been here since end 2008. Rioted with the rest about monocle gate/greedisbad/the door that won't open/melting graphics cards etc. Left 6 month's ago thinking CCP went way overboard with "visions" that I cannot play, but kept a finger at the wrist (forums).
Been back for a week or 2 since I see many, many great things happening, as if CCP finally found a new track and is *FFWD* speeding into the future.

No more lacklustre expansions 2x a year but every 6 weeks a new packed to the rim patch with new content/fixes and what not.

And no gold ammo will not ever appear in EVE.
Unless CCP wants to kill EVE off.

So yep, still worth playing and please don't compare EVE to that theme park called wow. What?

Ok. Who summoned the veld god here?

This really makes me wonder if C made some program to alert him if his name is used on the forums.

Full name history would be maintained. Look at someone, and you'll see who they used to be.
Search for someone by their old name, and you'll still find them.

Takes care of the more egregious problems.

(Name changes are /kinda/ needed for gender changes.)

Ralphine?


@OP: CCP has been doing a LOT of work lately, good work, and it's only going to be better. Even a bittervet like me will have to admit that now, more than ever, EVE is/will be worth playing, for a long time.

I keep reading about this "Greed is Good" thing...what exactly happened? I'm guessing the company said it was their goal to make money via micro-transactions, etc? Why would that arouse so much anger?

I mean, they make the game to make money...which is good for us, because no profits = no more game.

Internal memo was debating over "gold ammo" and other goods which would provide an edge to players over those who didn't want to use it. This was done at the same time as the in-game NEX store popped up. Players put 1+1 together and quit en-masse (me included) to stay away until the end result was set in stone (no P2W).

I must say, now that its clear that you will not be able to use multiboxing programs to broadcast one click to multiple clients, its going to be harder to "pay to win". Imo that have been availeble for a long time, in terms of plex. The ingame microtransitions however are cosmetics only, and dont give players an edge. But ofc, you can pay out for tons of plex, buy the best character you can find, and og fit the most expensive pvp ship you can. Still wont count for nothing when a group of buddies sneak up on you and make your heart skip a beat due to the adrenaline injection. EvE is not a easy game, and if you belive you can pay to win here, you migth get a financial slap in the face :P

I reckon that would be fine. What happens to the old name, though? Can it be reused?

That would be impossible as then 1 name is linked to more then 1 person.

After some reflection...I still hate it. I guess I'm a bittervet now. Cry

Breaking immersion...messing up "quick" local checks....adding unnecessary complexity....all because you gave yourself a silly name? (no offense Butts Alad!) I'm not on board.

I like it but can certainly understand why many would be opposed.

But not for this character, obviously :)

I would actually pay a plex (nearly €20) to change my alts name as it's a pants on head stupid name for an out of Corp alt , I'm fairly certain the name alone has gotten our alt Corp rumbled at least twice, it's fine for maby the first week of a new war but after a couple of kills its obvious I'm near when you see the name in local .
in my defense I had no idea I would be using it for the purpose when I named it.

But yeah, I'd be for name changes (obviously with the old one one the character sheet somewhere)

Never thought of that. It would spotting people near impossible.

And isnt in line with CCP's project of making EVE less unnecessary complex...
