Agreed. I wish they would be renamed, again.

The lack (?) of CCP comments on this subject is sort of a bad omen. Kind of a small version of the whole see-no-evil-hear-no-evil thing before and around Incarna deployment.

Well, i would prefer the 10MN or 1MN at the beginning:

1MN Catalyzed Cold-Gas Arcjet Microwarpdrive
10MN Y-T8 Overcharged Hydrocarbon Microwarpdrive

That´s how it should have been done... easier to find now, if you were that new to eve that you wouldn´t recognize them anyway, but still rad names and not those abominations.

I got lost in thought... it was unfamiliar territory.

It’s easy for us older players to lament the loss of the individual names, because we have all memorised them so that it had become second nature to us.

However I am still able to remember being the new guy and being completely bamboozled by everything having to be different, different names, different mods, no continuity. If I was back in that position, I'm pretty sure I'd be of the opinion that this is the best change ever.

Confirming CCP has no clue how to properly "optimize" their game.

If CCP is trying to optimize by creating simpler names for people to recognize what the module is, then why not go one step further and rename themselves so players know who they are dealing with?

etc., etc. At least then when one posts to the forums and states something, we players will be able to determine just how much pull that CCP person will have based on their simple naming system.

Ah yes - I have a little bitter memories about them. Having supplied a ~60-80 man lowsec corp with modules, I usually had quite a few on stock when CCP suddenly changed the loot tables and they dropped from being 8-11 mill/piece to 100k until I next logged in (had to attend a meeting abroad, so didn't log in for a few days).

Wait - I just checked the market and all meta 1-4 were merged into meta 3? Shocked - edit - lol - just realized there weren't any meta 2 and 4 with propulsion mods - I thought Y-T8 were meta IV and I just never noticed meta 1-3, just as with the guns Oops...

I can see why they did the naming for those items so searching would come up...but I still dont like it.

Have you heard anything I've said?

You said it's all circling the drain, the whole universe. Right?

That's right.

Had to end sometime.

Either way I do have to agree that the old names are bad becuase they had no progression I mean how in the heck do I go from arc jets to hydrocarbons to rocket boosters?

The new names are bad too they show progression but no creativity.

I call for creative names with progression in them.

Vapor Jet

I like the fact that the size and the basic item name (Microwarpdrive) is in the name.
But the new names make them sound like they're even below t1.
"10MN Limited.." Limited what? Being of limited use? They're definately not Limited Edition.

"10MN Y-T8 Overcharged Hydrogen Microwarpdrive" <- would have been more awesome.

But well, leave it be.
Name changes will just leave tons of Killboards broken until someone gets around updating from database dumps. :S

These new names aren't based. Y-T8's were once the swagged out prop modules for everything cruiser... then the drop rate for them increased so much they were on everyone's ship. Now they don't even exist. How the mighty have fallen.

Yes, I concur with most of the people here. Bring my beloved Y-T8 MWD back.

However, I do like how the change made it easier to search for items by their size class.

So, As a compromise, I would accept a Y-T8 10MN Microwarp drive :P (or something to that effect -- experimental is far too long a word anyway as it has to wrap into a 2nd line in icon view.
