I believe some people weren't around for the old scanning system. The current version of probing is so immensely improved on it that I never thought to complain about the current system.

It wont let me have an empty signature...

*shrug* people are always going to complain, i just find it amusing especially when people often confuse "dumbing it down" with "removing tedium"

Oh, I love translations.

Like the part of your quote I bolded?
Let me translate:

"wahh wahh, we don't get to ruin CCPs events for cheap laughs with my internet friends, this is srs bidness and eve is dying"

yeah, that sucks for you.

Fortunately, for the vast majority of players that love these events, your inability to disrupt them simply doesn't register on the give-a-crap-o-meter.

As for the rest of your non-bolded drivel, you should probably find a new game since this one apparently sucks so much.
Don't worry, no one will ever miss you.

At all.

Alot of wild negativity in this thread.

Some people should just take a long eve break, since apparently its not doing it for them any more.

look on the bright side, no matter what ccp does with this expansion nobody will feel as upset as mark webber does right now.

Needs more detail before assessing properly.

Initial thought is that it sounds pretty underwhelming. Hopefully I'm wrong because I think CCP are going to see a fair amount of people decide "ten years is long enough" this summer.
