The game leans to the old bloated whining players who cry and complain if things change not to their liking.

The game lacks a personal feeling of no avatar interaction, just fly around in a ship or sit In your station.

I would NOT spend my money on a subscription.
The new play to try should let everyone new see how boring the game really is without having to spend $ good choice at least.

But thats just my opinion and like (_*_)'s everyone has one.

1- My weapons continuing to cycles for and additionnal half cycle after my target is being dead and my last cycle done. Once the weapon finaly stops cycling it cooldown, it blinks red for an additional 2 sec before i can activate it again. Lets go CCP get ride of this lag... losing 3-5 sec each time i want to change target over a cycle of 3.1sec
2- no automatic Dscan... give me a skill i can train to automatic dscan with some options and allert i can set up
3- bumping mechanic
4- interdiction bubble festival all over the places
5- UI windows game! i would like to see space while playing space ship game!
6- n+1 game
7- harsh attitude of a big majority of the players and regular space bullying amongst the community
8- must pay for the 2 additionnal characters training on a same account... it is soooo 2001 like! Time for CCP to arrive in 2017 aand Free up multiple character training

For me personally, i would change a few things, but i'm not playing this game alone, i play it with thousands of others, and what would be wonderful for me would horribly suck for others.

But for the sake of arguement.

Wardecking in hi sec. It's a broken system anyways, looking at it from both sides tbfh!

Not a popular statement i know! Lol

The old wardecs were so much fun. They are probably why I gave EVE a real shot to begin with. I probably would have quit after a couple weeks otherwise. I haven't had much experience with it since they started changing them, but it was always fun to school an aggressor who assumed we were weak.

3 things ? Hum...

1 - Killboards. Well, not the tool in itself but what it provides :
* Free and accurate intel on fits used and war status , with ZERO efforts (there was a time only destroyed items was reported, and the players needed to post the kill/lossmail so sometimes it wasn't done, making intel harder).
* The establishment of a FPS mentality. Aka the god "Kill/Death ratio" who gives a bad ambiance whatever the game he infects... Even the implants are reported (what the point, apart mocking the player ?)
* ...And the impossibility to avoid it (API check and syndication don't permit a player to NOT have any of his actions reported).

An option to hide our name in the lossmails (at the cost of doing it in killmails too. If you refuse your losses, then you refuse your kills too, nothing is free) would compensate most of this points without affecting the gameplay of Kill/Death zealots.

2 - Recent UI design choices by CCP. UI themes who are vastly inferior to the old RGB sliders who offered to customize ALL the UI, lack of consistency (neocom transparent even with opacity at full), small buttons in the Selected Item window, lack of options (whatever CCP think about that, options are good. PERIOD), deletion of the "Load Station Environment" who permitted to reduce GPU temperature at the same time, the infoboxes who pop at zero milliseconds since Ascension addon (seriously, who is the idiot who thought it was a good idea ?), etc... The UI was decent before 2012, now it look like a beta version, a shame for a game who has more than 10 years... An amateurish UI can't attract players or customers (Windows 8 ?).

3 - Some graphics additions who are sometimes useless and can't be disabled anymore (my GPU card appreciates it...) and the mentality behind. CCP looks like they prefer flashy stuff to real content and sometimes do it badly... I mean, the docking camera was a waste of time, weren't better flashy stuff to add than that ? The adverts in station... well, it does add something interesting, but no options to disable it and weren't there better stuff to add ? The Jumpgate animation and his bubble of flashing thunder lights can annoy many players who suffers from light sensitivity (I even see a player on Twitch admit to move the eyes at each jump, and myself I play with Assets window online at the center of the screen, all the time), etc... What the point to add an effect who can affect players for no reason ? Etc.

If only I can add a 4th one : the gigantic amount of "Little Things" who need to be corrected. Little things are little yes, but if they become numerous, it can only be bad for the attractivity of the game. I would LOVE to see the release of an addon only made for the sake of bug corrections and very small upgrades.

1.the interface generally. they call it modern but it has less color than windows 95. I have no idea what sort of basis CCP had for this, but having colorless icons is the opposite of modern. they even removed functions from the interface (custom color to be precise), and the icons they made are either dull or have nothing at all to do with what they represent, not by a long shot. take for example the drone bay icon - it used to be an actual drone, but for some reason I can't ever comprehend why they chose something that looks like a chicken's foot. and the icon for inertia? is that supposed to be a ship or are we carrying spear heads around now?

CCPlease legacy UI, thank you.

2. the fact that CCP actually put effort into changing icons of modules that had nothing wrong with them (#briefcasegate). I believe they could have invested the same time and effort to rebalance assault frigates or autocannons. seriously, I don't seem to be the only one who thinks these things are bad.

3. as previously stated, CCP's history is full of promises that were left unfinished. I will be the one to point that out as a testament to CCP and their ability to make games.

These are the top 3 things that I, as an eve player of 12 years, am most concerned about in regards to eve, and CCP generally.

oh and the mad bouncing my ships are infected with when I try to use WASD for manual piloting.

the horrid player base out for only themselves and not a working community when you only need more alts to be completely sufficient

I have opened ticket since 5 months now and no progress since...I don't think that's a good sign.
New features and dev twitch streams come very often...they talk about ship design and scanning UI and all that, but they can't fix a freakin' drone window bug. Or do something about carrier's fighter window to show more accurate damage on the fighters.

No, that's actually one of the right things with EVE.

Eliminate it and start getting feedback from eves entire playerbase not just those chosen by the big alliance voting blocks.

Yawn,  I'm right as usual. The predictability kinda gets boring really.

1/ CONCORD, let's get rid of it, or make it vulnerable + no magical spawn

2/ Missions; make them dynamic with improved AI

3/ Make bounties fun, not a Eve-Like Facebook style

What 3 things? While EVE isn't perfect, I don't waste my precious and finite time on this earth playing games that have THREE or more things about them that bother me enough to have to post on a forum about it Cool

Walking in station and having fps out of ship activities like star citizen.
emove minmatar race since they're just slaves and replace with jove/sleepers/drifters as rsces.
Real quests with story's and cutscenes that are more than just fetch quests or fly to x and kill x.
No alts beyond your three alotted characters per account.

1- Lack of connection with the ship, you ARE the ship in EVE.

2- Lack of out of ship activities. DUST died, and there is still mentions of it all over the game.

3-unfinished destroyer line of ships. An exploration and logi destroyer type wou

1. Until your ship gets destroyed. Then you are the POD.
2. Forums...
3. They've added plenty of destroyers - we really don't need any more at this point.
