I am sure all 3% of the playerbase still using it will mourn your passing

Personally i say its about bloody time, feel free to wish it luck in the afterlife guys and/or gals :)

Well, it was just a matter of time, I guess... bye bye EVE's potential to one day be more than spaceships and spreadsheets. o7

1 step forward 6 steps back.
Just like dust 514 being turned from an open world drop in drop out large scale planetary warfare running in real time side by side with space ships up in the sky fighting for air superiority into just another cod style lobby shooter of x versus x with no stakes.

Guess we have to just hope star citizen is successful and not a huge scam. Cause it looks like star citizen is the closest were ever going to get to what Eve could be.

I've never understood why people wanted to turn Eve into Habbo Hotel.

This is a spaceship game. Every time you expand the scope, you dilute it.

Good riddance to any player ready to leave over this.

Can't say I'm bothered. I never understood the purpose of the captain's quarters anyway. The only thing I ever used it for was taking the odd screenshot of my character stood in front of their ship.

Hello darkness, my old friend.

It didn't have an actual purpose for years... but it did have potential, once. It was a different time back then, though... a time of big dreams and ambitions. Needless to say, it was a very different CCP back then.

While captain’s quarters will be removed from New Eden with the August release, the ability to view your avatar in 3D will remain in place through the show info window on characters.


this is the biggest crock or crap I have ever seen.. you have players some not all that spent real money on their gear just to look at it in a freaking window.

CCP ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!...

The only thing I'll miss are the jokes about that door.

CCP could at least have trolled us and opened the door to the next corridor before removing CQ Pirate.

Remove standings and insurance.

One of the first things that we want to investigate is to release a 64-bit EVE client to better utilize your available system memory when playing. Compiling a 64-bit client has been held back by the outdated middleware that was needed by captain’s quarters.


Holy sheep chit.. now they plan on killing all our PC's.

Which begs the question, why on Earth would you bother spending real money on something that had absolutely no benefit to you in-game?

You paid to look pretty, you can still look pretty in a window. The same window that everyone else already saw anyways... assuming they ever looked, which I can promise they did not.

That's the fundamental difference between two kinds of EVE players... and CCP desided years ago which ones they will focus on in the future. Spoler: It's not those that care about fashion... Blink

nah, EVE should never had had CQ and WiS even added in the first place, it never added anything of actual value to the game and never would have, it also means hours of manpower to update, fix, and bugcheck, all for not actually adding anything to the game at all, it was a terrible idea in the first place and i for one will not miss it, playing dressup never interested me in EVE, your pilot avatar is rarely seen by anyone other than you in anything more than a tiny 32x32 icon ingame :P

funny I thought the entire WiS agenda was to push microtransactions which in turn caused the community to rage much and begin the iconic Burn Jita..

still its going to feel really strange having a ships of a space navy with no hanger or bay to walk around in.. guess these nerds haven't watched any single sci-fi movie ever created since every last one of them had some type of CQ/Piliot Hanger involved when it came to spaceships.. SHAME SHAME SHAME on CCP..

I guess it called for too much work.. ccp cant have that, they need extra time to break the game even further.

im going to say goodbye to my sofa and multi-panels tonight.. R.I.P

I suppose they'll drop the avatars next and go back to the cartoons. Not that I didn't look great back then as well.

That's what it is - or was - today, but WiS could have worked if CPP did it right in the first place, but - of course - they had to be greedy and jump the gun by trying to sell people over priced accessories for a system that wasn't even there yet... EVE could be a very different game today - with much more meaningful and VARIED gameplay - if CCP hadn't mishandled WiS so thoroughly.

...but I guess that's all moot now anyways. When it comes down to it, CCP aren't the big visionaries and innovators the games media made them out to be for years. The only thing they ever did right was making a semi-solid economy simulator... no small feat, to be sure, but not nearly as impressive as it used to be.

I mean, let's be honest, these days, all the game is good for is a few shaking heads over articles listing how much the latest big war cost in real money...

they might replace our profile pics with the awful looking DUST 514 profiles.

No need for all those fancy clothes that we can buy. No place to walk anymore.

It may not have been a cash cow for CCP anyway, just like skins.

Of course this now means that they will have more resources to put more ads in and around our stations from the big corps. I didn't look at the screen in my captain's quarters, and I don't look at the screens in my hanger either.

This isn't an accurate analogy, but when a body is dying, the extremities start to lose blood.
