EVE Vegas 2016 Kicks Off This Week! - Feedback
The awesome EVE Vegas 2016 player gathering is about to kick off! Enjoy an incredible weekend at this largest EVE gathering after Fanfest. If you cannot attend, you still can have lots of fun by following the exciting EVE TV broadcast (where you can win fabulous prices, for example a GTC 1080 and GTX 1070 graphics card). Check out the schedule!

Update: Command Bursts and the New World of Fleet Boosting - Feedback
With the Ascension expansion we see a completely new world of fleet boosting changing from passive, off-grid to active, on-grid game play. After excellent feedback from the community, the team comes with an update and refinement of the mechanic (Evasive Maneuvers burst is split into signature radius boost and agility boost; leadership, wing command, fleet command will get stronger, and more). Check out the details!

Update: Building Dreams: Introducing Engineering Complexes - Feedback
Engineering Complexes (EC) will introduce a whole new level to industry related game play. Following good discussions and community feedback, the team comes with an update (ECs get a flat boost to ME, PE and costs; the fuel consumption has been lowered; blueprint costs are available). Check out the details!

It seems to me that the effort to push out the little guy is growing ever stronger. Whining? yes, i guess, a little. The biggest operation my corp is capable of is a group of five Retrievers in a mining op. I do understand the need to encourage larger corps to proliferate. Large corps are the lifeblood of New Eden. I just want to express my concerns that the little guys like us would like to be able to do more also. Engineering Complexes are a fantastic addition. I look forward to drooling over someones EC structure. My small friends-and-family corp salute the larger corps capable of constructing and maintaining one. Maybe we can sell you some ore to help you keep the fires burning.
Ok, i am done whining now.
