Returning player looking for advice

#1 - 2017-02-06 22:37:36 UTC
G'day all.

It's been 4 yrs since i played Eve. I have a 2006 toon so have seen a lot of changes since the games conception. I wish to start playing again and re activated an account to see what was going on and boom. WTF moment.

I know most of the changes will be in patch notes and discussions but am looking for a little feedback before i spend the next year reading.

Some of the main changes noticed is cyno jump ranges and caps jumping through stargates Shocked.

I know the list would go on and on, so could some of you scurvy dogs teach an old dog some new tricks. Feel free to add your 2 cents on the major changes i will need to read up on, skilks to train etc, bearing in mind my toons are all super capable and have caps in the deep dark reaches of 0.0. Hope they are not lost.

I was mostly PVP oriented, including wormhole running etc.

Much appreciated.

The biggest changes would be industry overhaul in 2014, Sovereignty overhaul in 2015 and the ongoing structure overhaul starting in 2016. See for details and links to devblogs. There are a lot of new ships, I'll mention T3 destroyers and new life injected into old ships - i.e. Rorqual. The developers have been busy and there is no sense trying to recreate the updates site here. It's quite well organized though it only goes back to the Kronos expansion in June 2014.

Your stuff will be where you left it - ownership of the stations has probably changed.

Thanks mate.

Re subbed 1 account and reading up hard core. Thanks for the reply. I see the forums are still as fickle as usual.
