I have to ask about what the two other projects were, though I expect you can't/won't tell us :)

Since we can pretty much guess what they are, much more interesting would be some idea of how far along they were. The interest is all academic, though.

Being one of the players that unsubbed for a while after Incarna came out, I'm really pleased that CCP has followed through with what they said about focusing on Ships/Graphics/Little Things. Hopefully they will continue and make more balancing changes (lookin' at you, FW).

That new UI/nebulae/warping... my eyes have cavities from all that candy!

I hope you will continue to work on Incarna, yes the summer patch was a mistake, but the reason is, that you released it far too early. if 10,058 Goon voices cried out and were suddenly silenced.

I just want to say with the hour I had to mess around today, that this is one of the coolest and most visually stimulating patches I've seen since I've started playing EVE.


Looking forward to EVE: TOTALHELLDEATH in 6 months to a year.

and yes I do want to be able to tell my friends and family I am playing a game called, EVE: TOTALHELLDEATH Pirate

I hope this doesn't mean that WiS is dead.

I welcome Crucible, I think it will be awesome. But I really do hope future expansions revisit WiS. There's so much potential there. Don't let the reaction to the calamities that surrounded Incarna discourage you from developing the brilliant concept at the heart of it.

I just hope you guys can follow through.

We need delayed local in null sec and improved d-scan or some totally new intel tool. We need better industry. We need objectives for small gangs and ways to force fights outside of pos/sov blobby timered crap (the ability to attack moon mining array is a great idea).

Looks like a good expansion. Getting back to FiS is good, still, I don't expect you to abandon WiS entirely, I expect that Future Vision video within like ten years.

Read my signature. Have it here in case you disabled signatures:

So... no affordable NEx store... no full-fledged Incarna... no new casual content... no new solo content... no new PvE content...

Why should I keep paying to play this game?

Crucible, to me, means ZERO gameplay, both in space and in stations.

I don't know how many are out there who feel like me; you reelased Incarna way too early, now it's on hold or however it is,and you're putting effort into stuff I don't care about or don't have the time to use.

I don't have time to wait for other people to have fun together.

i don't have time to waste not having fun.

And there is no bloody alternative to this game.

So, well, either I look for some new hobby (unlikely), play some new game (been there, done that, only EVE is EVE, dammit), or keep bitchin aorund this forums until some CCP vows that Summer 2012 expansion is gonna throw gameplay my way.

SOLO content. CASUAL content. PvE content. Space Barbies content.

Any of them would suit me. But. Give. Me. More. Gameplay.

Looks good so far, but does corp locations work as intended? Tabs for corp localtion not working when trying to add a bookmark, only from personal locations to corp bookmarks. Thats really undoable with close to 3000 bookmarks... Workaround is to sort locations with a time stamp and adding only the latest...

Here's finger crossed for the expansion and the future.

On a side note, shall we maybe throw Soundwave a fire extinguisher now, or wait until he is a little more well done....

I'd like to suggest a sweeping advance to patch deployment to further raise your software usability level beyond 1999! Can you display the patch notes during the installation phase? Then we could read the glory of what is at hand and pass the time while our computers click and whirr (they all do that right?).

I mean, stick a link to updated notes on the patcher, even just pop open a readme.txt in notepad. That is, if your upcoming launcher can't handle it...
