There is a logout button. Though unlike other games it is more balanced with 30 seconds delay.

Well, if the OP means quitting to the character selection screen instead of out of the game entirely, I can second that. I have no idea how hard it is to implement that from the technical viewpoint, but, as someone who jumps between characters frequently, I would be mighty glad if I didn't have to harass the launcher all the time.

Very.
As far as I understand it, the way the client has been programmed all those long years ago is that it asumes the character ID to stay the same during a session. So when you want to play another character, and as such use another character ID, the client needs to be restarted.

Here I used to have a sig of our old Camper in space. Now it is disregarded as being the wrong format. Looking out the window I see one thing: Nothing wrong with the format of our Camper! Silly CCP......

There's three log out buttons for you Big smile

Quoted from Doc Fury: "Concerned citizens: Doc seldom plays EVE on the weekends during spring and summer, so you will always be on your own for a couple days a week. Doc spends that time collecting kittens for the on-going sacrifices, engaging in reckless outdoor activities, and speaking in the 3rd person."

OP probably means a way to return to the character selection screen without re-starting the game.

I remember reading somewhere that CCP were working on this feature but it wouldn't work due to the way the game is programmed or something.

It has been explained by CCP.

It has to do with the link of the server databse that has to be terminated, and currently the only option is closure of the client.
