Why previous Aura VO is better?

It has very defined atmosphere - emotionally distant neutrality of a cold steel - which compliments game much better than new Aura version.

New one feels too.. hm.. mainstreamy - i imagine real person (woman) behind VO which may be great for casual game but not for EVE.

Trying to create user-friendly element we have a risk of ruining immersion effect.

Compare visual experience of "Conan The Barbarian" and "Xena: Warrior Princess". Both has swords and armours and stuff, but devil is in the details. Two different quality levels of immersion. Same situation with old/new Aura.

I will be happy to have previous Aura back or...
option to switch to another language pack (japanese would work) keep using ENG interface :)

Shocked

I was going to be more polite about the new character/skill window and just call it overly cluttered and counter-intuitive. Besides what looks like busy work for busy work's sake (mouse over for everything detailed is a sloppy habit to fall into), it's less friendly to bad eyesight than the old one was. That's not a good thing.

CCPlease, I'll make you a deal. I'll learn to love the new Aura voice if you give back something very much resembling in both form and function the old skill window. Fair deal?

Why do you need my out of game browser to have cookies enabled for the launcher to let me play the game?

Oh yay! thanks for letting me know ive paid for the game. Cause i didnt know that ive paid for the game.


Why is the Training queue still a button if it, and the character portrait link to the same thing?
nonstatic portrait is bad.
Looks like the Drones rigging pic in the character sheet is borked.
What is this about skills from clipboard?

How many skills do i actually have?
I cant copy my total skill points number anymore?
So what is the rate that i am gaining skill points at? it appears to be double, ... something?
Omega button is not in the Pilots license area? nor does that area have the extend sub option? what?

Why does my character sheet close when i look at another characters full body portrait?
Orange/Yellow boxes around things is stupid if i can already use it. Show me when i cant.

Its not possible to please all the people all the time, but it sure as hell is possible to Displease all the people, most of the time.

I don't need some space-chick to tell me that my warpdrive is activated, i just activated it. I need however a computervoice, as empty as space itself, to PROCLAIM TO DEMAND that it shall be known THAT LANCE B JOHNSON'S WARPDRIVE IS NOW ACTIVATED.
.....so please bring back the old voice.

Maybe I just missed it due to the major screw up of the new skill sheet, but how and where do I see how many skill points I have in a certain skill? How am I supposed to tell how many injectors I will need or extractors if I cant see the actual number of SP in a certain skill?

Please stop changing ****. Why don't you just create a new game that you can put all your new fancy crap in and leave EVE alone like it has been for the past ~10+ years ffs.

*Ninja Edit: FYI there is a selection in audio to turn the new annoying Aurora sound off with a slider

In light of the mass hysteria over Aura's new voice, I think CCP should include free "Therapy Drones" along with the other Ascension rewards. #tsunamioftears #changehurtsmyfeelings


If there is something good for years there is no reason to change it. If the reason for changing Aura's voice was making a narration voice than they should just have done that and leave Aura as it was. The narration voice should have been a male or female voice (depending on your caracter's gender) "in your head" and just leave Aura as the ship's voice.

Good idea.

Regarding the new character sheets - can we please have it so we can have the training queue and the skills page in separate windows - it was so much easier when you could open the two windows side by side instead of having to do the vertical thing. As it is currently set up you cannot see enough of the skill queue.

Also what is up with that font size? Are you actually trying to blind your older players? I can barely see it - especially when it is shadowed. Maybe this shows up better on the giant dev monitors but it is just impossible to see all of those tiny little skills - they are so small they actually seem to blur.

Finally - is there anyway to disable the tool tips that pop up when you hover over anything - they block everything that you need to see below it. The tool tips may be useful for new players - but I have been playing for 6 years straight - I simply do not need to be constantly reminded what the prereq are for every single skill in the menu.

Any info on how long the discounts on the SoE Sanctuary SKINs will last? I'd like to pick them up, but I'm also thinking about potentially waiting until Black Friday or Cyber Monday to see if there are any discounts on AUR in the works. I don't want to miss out on the discounted Sancutary SKINs, though, either.

CCPlease give us an option to enable the old Aura voice.

CCPlease enable the NPE on "old" accounts.

The new character sheet is ... not good. I dont like it.

Aura's voice was the soul of Eve.
The character sheet was fine as it was.

Did anyone ever express dissatisfaction with these elements? Change for change's sake.

Suggest using focus groups made up of players to run changes by before making them.

Digging most of the updates. Hope that the clones bring some extra people to shoot!


HOWEVER:

CCP; we need to talk. I'm sure you had your reasons...but can we please have the option to revert whatever Aura voice audio is available back...to the previous? I personally find the new voice to be annoying (muted for the first time ever). I'm sure she is a nice lady...but man I already miss the old voice.

Polite critique is all good and well but not when it falls on deaf ears. Most of these criticisms were already brought up in the beta environment thread about how poor the new skill window is and were thoroughly ignored.

I simply cant understand ccp sometimes - you went from an easy to see, easy to use skill queue and character page to something that is overly complex and so poorly designed as to almost be unusable - or more accurately unreadable. Please - just break out the skill page and the skill queue into separate windows. Also allow for resizing of the fonts. As it is now the fonts are so small as to make it extremely difficult to see. And no - this is not another you will get used to it in time issue. Cramming everything into one window to the point where you had to decrease font size to make everything fit - clearly makes things more difficult to read for those with small monitors or less then perfect eyesight. Its not rocket science - just common sense.

UX team seems to be unfamiliar with the game. they do "beatuification" instead of real usability.
Really, really bad usability decisions: Obvious things overlooked, uncomfortable dialogs introduced.

New voice is nothing. Honestly, I would never start playing the game that speak such a voice.

CCP, you are loosing the game.

I see no good changes. I see bad and very unfortunate changes.
