Grouping weapons in station. Without having to go into a sub-sub menu in space.
Being able now to drag almost anything to chat for a direct link. And to a lot of other input fields as well. Filters anyone?

Among many, many other little improvements that have been made over the years.

It's still only ranked 26th for killing, and if you go through a few of its losses, you can see quite plainly it is not unstoppable. The qq'ing over Ishtars/Drones lately (your joke above aside) has been rather amusing for me. I saw one in Hek the other day get dropped by a Fleet 'Cane.

Regional nebulas
The "actual systems show up as stars on the skybox" feature from years back being resurrected and done right
Stargates pointing in the right direction
Stargate tunnel

All little things that contribute to the illusion that the star systems aren't completely seperate instances.

I like the price history graph in the market window.

I wish the game had more embedded graphs capturing historical data like that.

You guys are all nuts. You know that, don't you?

ahem...uh....

Yeah, the "invert selection" option. Yes. It may seem small, but add up how many times I've used it
and it rivals my pew pew buttons. Yay "invert selection"!

Paradise is like where you are right now, only much, much better.

Well, I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm definitely not nuts....

Dried fruit, maybe.

I was thinking the other day.... I've been having a bit of difficulty actually getting missioners to shoot me, definitely not on the same level as you guys.

Then I started thinking.... what if I were the 'missioner'? Blink

Ikr?

My thread got locked,
I petitioned it,
three weeks later CCP Phantom (dev, not GM!) responded and unlocked it.

It's not a glitch, it's clever use of game mechanics. ;)


Still waits for ressurection ...... but I already work on something.

New self designed clothes are coming.....

By the way, my favorite QotD is "Your security status has been lowered."

I like it so much, I downloaded the sound file, put it on my mobile and made it my text message notification tone.
As if I don't hear it often enough, in-game. :p

Yours.


*cough*


That was mean. -.-'

Good question though...
One of the little things I started to love was the AutoWarp&Jump button.
I don't even remember the rest...


Before the Jump button was implemented I would with the auto pilot route set warp to the next gate and turn on the autopilot. This would jump me into the next system when I reached the gate. After jumping I would turn off the autopilot and repeat.

Having an older slower computer at the time using that technique allowed me to compensate for any possible client side lag.

Yeah I did that too, but it annoyed me so much ..... lol

It's always awesome when I'm at the pub, and I get a text message... sometimes, there's someone at the bar who actually plays EVE, and nearly jumps out of their skin at the sound of it.
