EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

CCPs strategy to get people to use the Nex store at least once. To unsubscribe you'll be required to purchase a weapon to shoot yourself in the head.

I would like to see an Unreal Tournament style game play you can bet on but the fighters are real players. Opens things up for having backers, bookies, fighters, trainers, betting etc etc.

Also, the guy on the left looks like Master Chief from Halo. Lol

As for the sidearms for avatars, I'm not getting my hopes up.

I don't know, sounds like it'd get soaked up pretty quick. People bought gross and stupid looking "monacles" for way too much, I'm confident the directors know of the badassery inherent in tools of murder and destruction.

I would like to put that ton or so of firearms to good use. I'll take that amarrian pistol (just for personal protection).

Even better, give me some bodyguards that I can arm with assault rifles.

'Shooting in stations', coming to you in 2014...

See this was what Fearless was really talking about with 'Goldern Bullets' :P

You pay 100$ we give you enough AUR for one Goldern Bullet for Gun you must now pay $400 in AUR to buy.. there for every time you shoot.. which will be extremely buggy, not work right.. and likely cause your computer to blow up there for costing you 400 + 100 + Price of new computer....

I honestly saddly would not put this pass them at this time.

This is something I would like to see, especially with that sweet Amarr sidearm.. Personally I think if CCP implemented shooting in stations then there's no reason we couldn't have the same rules as per system security status that we do in space. So if you really want to gank someone for that sweet monocle in a hisec station then you're gonna get clubbed back to your nearest clone by CONCORD troops.. whereas in an 0.0 station anything goes.. :D

I need a big gun to cut a hole in my door or to at least carve my initials into it in the CQ.

That is no Incarna concpet art; that is the Epic Arc Journal picture for the Guristas apic arc "Smash and Grab".

That a low level scum like the Guristas feels the need to carry a sidearm is no surprise. That a capsuleer would need to carry a weapon is a completely different issue.

More **** for them to add to the nex store? No ******* thank you. Unless I can use the sidearm for something, I don't want it. If it's in the nex store then I don't even want it if I can use it.

Whether or not you win the game matters not.  It's if you bought it.

Side arms used for in-station pew-pew would be significantly game-changing. It's certainly more than vanity-only item that the NeX is supposed to be restricted to.

THINK where this thread is taking you, guys.

Look into my eyes...   and tighten that sphincter, kid.

You already have two side-arms. A left arm and a right arm. Please do not be greedy. Blink

Actually they did have a dev blog about this an they said no combat in stations. It was a big point as to the idea of "then why the hell are we doing this again?"

True they did say no combat in stations, for the moment. They wanted to rol it out slowly and see what happened.

That in the future side-arms and who knows station assaults could happen, I hope so. But then we'd have to expect CCP to step up and deliver us their "future vision of a space simulation" exactly as they promised. Which is years and years away, unless they deliver on lets say, at least the station environments!

The devs wanted to make sure people wouldn't be slaughtering each other in stations wreaking havoc on the core gameplay of eve online. They put it as "killing the FC's with a teaspoon".

Shooting in stations would bring a lot of people into the game. Maybe some restrictions on hi-sec stations, or Jita 4-4 would be a bloodbath.

Bloodbath is an understatement, but it would give a whole new meaning to market PVP when you can shoot a tradealt in the face, especially when the bugger never leaves station Pirate

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

I am all for PVP in stations, it is in perfect lockstep with the whole concept of Eve. Just restrict it by system security status...
