Please bring back the old voice or give us the option.

She sounds like my ex-wife from 22 years ago... I am so tempted to shoot my speakers every time I forget to turn them off...

I do also not like the new Aura.
I want to explain why on the Command warping.

The new Aura speaks quicker, with a happiness in her tone. If your adrenaline pounds to your veins and you just ran from a lost battle, the least you want to hear is a voice that is happy about that you are just warping, maybe just saved your clone.
So every time you are not happy, your Aura kicks you in the ass. Not a good ally.

I think the idea that a voice that expresses happiness might be inviting for a new capsuleer to do what has to be done. But eve world is not happy, fluffy unicorns in space. you need a voice to ancor you on the experience you just had. get you down, prepare you.
This is best done with a quiet, neutral, meditating voice. The old Aura had this qualities in my opinion.

When you warped out of battle and your Adranilne pounds through your veins, Aura told you in a quiet voice that all is good and you can focus on your next step. It fitted to your action indipendant on your mood or purpose.

Please go back to your Aura design board, and check your options. I do not think all has to be remade. Only those places where emotions play a big part.

Thank you for the efforts. I like the general direction the tech decvelops into. Keep it going.

I'm all for original Aura. Have nothing against emotional voice character, but even original Aura were doing it better.




Oh snap I never knew Aura was originally saying that ! This sounds like GlaDOS's mother, it's epic (and voice sounds the same to the Aura we all love and CCP needs to bring back, it was probably the same actress ?). True, the words are not very fitting to Eve's lore, but still .... hilarious.

Studying the number of likes on the original "bring back Aura" posts and number of signatures in the aforementioned ipetitions thread, it seems we are about 35-40 people who really give a crap about keeping Eve .... Eve . Too bad.

"Oh, stop your whining - I think replacing HAL's voice in 2001 SPACE ODYSSEY with a more happy upbeat attractive female voice would ADD to the movie"... "you'll get used to it". "New viewers will never complain". "Sound doesn't matter".

If CCP doesn't take EVE seriously - how will others be able to?

I would like the option of using the old Aura voice.

After years and years (and years) of heavy metal and rock concerts, my higher range for hearing is damaged and at times faded. The older voice was deeper and I was able to hear it. The new voice is at a higher octane and parts of her speech are silent to me. Even when I turn my speakers up, it sounds like she is saying, "Whore Dry Act If".

As others have mentioned, it is not something I need to have to play the game, but it is but a small part taken away.

Good god that voice is awful. Had a chance to get on today and turned the voice volume up. Turned it right back down. I usually only keeo it around 50 but she sounded way better before.

"Warp drive active" :chirpychimpmunk"

There was a thread of a guy who just did some light audio modification of new Aura and it sounded a lot better.

So if you guys don't want to hassle with all new recording, can we at least get new Aura's voice modified to get more satisfactory results?

I understand why Aura's voice was changed, but I MUST have the option of reverting to the old one. This needs to be an immediate priority.

https://youtu.be/A1kPRgrHZ3Y The amount you can mine now with one account is insane. The Roqual in this video makes more ice then 3 fully boosted skiffs.(i calculated it). Including the possibility to compress the ice, he outruns my orca+freighter+3 skiff.
1 Account makes more ice then 5? That is illogical.

Please reduce that or give the orca and the porpoise a buff in mining. Maybe a double bandwith, so they can use 2 ice drones. Or doubble the mining bonus. CCPlease.



Edit. I know that the Rorqual is a capital mining ship now. But it is also the best Fleetbooster. And with an ice block every 6.6 sec. compared to the orca with around 50 sec. for the same block the rorqual is about 7.5 times better. This gap is too big. Don't you think so?

So far, my favorite Ascension feature is simulation mode in the fitting window- incredibly useful ability to have in-game. I truly appreciate how well this works. Big smile

The Alpha Clone option is fantastic. I'm really enjoying the ability to have no-cost, low-risk minions I can train to do limited, specific tasks.

The new ship destruction animations are beautiful to behold. Love watching the multitude of tiny explosions across a stricken vessel's hull culminate in a final blast.

I'm somewhat mixed on the structure explosions. Though they are spectacular and beautifully intense, I often wish I had protective goggles irl like those worn by my avatar to shield my eyes.

Though not an issue while gratuitously destroying non-essential bunkers, warehouses, lookouts, etc. after all enemies are dead (I leave no witnesses), the extreme brightness from blowing up missile and sentry turrets during a fight can make it difficult to see anything else on-screen, thus becoming a control issue.

Like many fellow capsuleers, I miss the old ship AI voice. There was a serene, detached quality to her- even as she expressed subtle annoyance when I asked her to set a way-point to the same location twice... and providing wonderful irony by calmly announcing, "the capacitor is empty"- perhaps the most dreaded words EVE.

Thanks for the cool subscriber rewards! I like the combined religious artifact/brass-knuckle aesthetic of the Sunesis. Very cool ship.

One suggestion for future combat suits and other outfits: sleeveless options would be great for showing off tattoos and prosthetic arms.

My overall opinion is that Ascension is a highly successful update. Kudos CCP!

I find it to be downright offensive to have CCP ignore us for nearly 40 pages now. Honestly.

You don't give your customers a platform to speak their minds and give feedback on your work, to then just ignore them completely if said feedback happens to not be to your liking. It doesn't work like that.
Even if you don't plan on doing anything with the feedback you've received, you still (politely, Falcon) tell them so. So that they at least know that they're being heard.

Don't forget that we are the ones that are keeping you in business, CCP. We are the ones allowing you to receive a paycheck at the end of the month.
Therefore I'd say that it's in your best interest to do everything in your power to keep us satisfied.
