Soonish. The expansion is still over two months from now.

Obviously I have to wait for details to panic. The scanning change is scary, but I'm cautiously optimistic. Very happy to see that *something* is being done for POSes even if it turns out not to be the complete modularity re-do they were thinking about a while ago. The notes about expanded exploration have my interest.

I wait to see,
What the **** is going on?

Well, I do like the name, it's very fitting.

Though, at the same time, I can't help but think "EVE Online: More of the Same - 2013" is just as fitting. Little things? UI improvements? Really? After ten years that's the best you guys could come up with? Incarna is still vaporware, tons of broken stuff, drones haven't been seriously looked at since they were nerfed to oblivion (to a 5-drone limit), etc., etc. And THIS is what you do for a 10 year anniversary? Hope you know what you're doing.

i'm a bit shocked by this. with all the things wrong with the game they are now going to break exploration, which is currently working nicely aside from the stupid NPC AI which annihilates drones. i hate to be an old cynic but my money is on them dumbing down exploration and ruining the current system by replacing it with a half-assed version that won't work and will be left unfinished. If they introduce any new scanning or exploration skills i will mega rage - i'm starting to get sick of skills just for the sake of it.

Eve was starting to shape up nicely, low sec is great, the ship rebalancing is great, bots are getting banned. mining barges are good, bounties are fun, wormholes are always good, exploration is really nice. If they put a big effort into fixing null we would be looking at a golden age of Eve. Now I'm a little worried, how much longer can the game operate with null sec the way it currently is, or old systems such as incursions, sov, drone ui, poses, walking in stations, aurum, missions, left to rot half finished?

I just want to say to CCP, please do not simplify or dumb down the scanning system in anyway.

That is my only concern. Apart from that interested to see what they mean by allowing us to explore new frontiers which we have never seen before. Hopefully null sec exploration will become a bit more profitable.


As long as it's not press button, get cookie I have trouble thinking of how it could be easier. Anyways, I'll wait till I see the proposal before I get upset or anything.


The current probing mechanics are complex if that is what you are referring too. They take quite a lot of skill and knowledge to effectively master. Obviously finding anomolies is really simple though. I just hope they don't dumb down the probing mechanics.


I agree with that 100 %. I like the fact that you actually need to put in some effort. In fact some signatures should be only accessible for people with lv5 skills in astrometrics group. At the moment its just too easy because after few days of training i can scan all signatures there are in the game. Thats just stuipid and boring.

Nerfing High-sec is never the answer. It is the question. The answer is 'YES'.

I think there's definitely design space for a cruiser or BC with scanning bonuses that could fill this dual role of scanning and plex combat.

Hee hee... I love how people say that all of hisec is nothing but nullsec alts. They don't seem to realize that it works both ways. Blink

I wonder if 'rebalance of industrial resources' includes not just ores PI etc but slots and bills

Looking forwards to balancing of magnetometric sites with other sites and some good risk:reward jazz

I really hope that they completely randomize all PvE in EvE so players have to actually risk their ships to earn isk. I hope this expansion will be the end of players memorizing spawns and spawn triggers.

If CCP makes, at least lvl 4 missions more difficult, then maybe all these solo anti-social carebears will actually go seek out some friends to mission with. However CCP also needs to make mission payouts scale with the amount of players in the mission site. The difiiculty and number of enemy should should also scale up when more players are in the mission.

Not the sort of name I was expecting.
I would have thought that name would be reserved for an expansion that iterates on wormholes and exploration and such

Frankly I wouldn't mind if sites would tell you their group right away so I didn't have to waste time on sites I didn't care about. Is this game supposed to be grindy in that way?
