  • Stuck at resource loading causing lag or black screen? Verify your shared cache folder!
  • If the client hangs with a black screen, you might want to reinstall your graphics driver. You also might want to check out if running EVE under DX9 helps.
  • Issues with the skill training queue stopping? This was a bug, which we are fixing right now (including automatic restart of your incorrectly paused queue, and skillpoint reimbursement later).

Thanks to all the hard working CCP employees that keep the Eve Universe spinning so nicely for all of us to enjoy. I particularly like the focused attention on the very useful "Eve Map in classical Subway Style" as created by Dirty-Rotten-Pirate. And I'm looking forward, as always, to the next release on June 13th. Thanks CCP for all things Eve

can we get an update as to when we can expect strategic cruisers to get their rebalance?

The first cheesy reply just begs for a reply

* Fighters will receive a balance pass

Kinda funny since that dev blog is released today and is almost at 1k complaints

Especially since the reason why "this rebalance is happening" won't solve anything

Kind Regards,

Weekly news report pop up pops up, dude on TS goes like: "Oh weekly news report: everything in eve is ******"

Salty? maybe... But it shows that you've not had a good week CCP.

I think June 13 will officially trigger the summer of rage 2 if CCP does not reconsider.

Thanks CCP for your hard work. Need to change bounties from a sandbox feature into a true game mechanic.

@Phantom, can you check whether the new boosters' validity can be increased by 3-4 weeks? Just let them expire a couple of days after the event is a bit lame.

... to give traders something to do. Smile

We are happily using a nice process here for the focus group, and it is very transparent.

To have a look at the discussions, please check the discussion logs.
To have a look at first proposed changes, please have a look at the Google sheets WIP document.

Please be aware that all this is work in progress (WIP) and should be treated as this. These are by no means any final numbers or decisions!

I have forwarded your feedback to the dev team, but cannot make any promises if there will be a change in expiry date. There are always a multitude of things to consider when it comes to expiry dates.

@CCP Phantom. Why not take the same process with rorquals and carriers as you are with T3C's instead of flipping everyone on their heads who have spent months training to reach goals and to enjoy the fruits of their dedication!
Instead your making hasty and rash adjustments that cause Havoc on the economy of which you claim is the reason for such chamges in the first place...

These dev responses make it even more funny and sad

"Full transparancy with balancing changes"

"Feedback and suggestions really appreciated"

--

Owyea guys 20-30% nerf because we feel like it in 4 days


Might want to rethink a few things
