In yesterday's mass test I noticed no new cyno effects were on the test server. This is more then a week after your dev blog, did something get delayed here and why did you think this was not something worth mentioning to the players ?

What's left of your credibility is at stake here.

edit: I see that CCP Veritas had the honor of announcing the delay. These words come to mind:

As much as I agree with the anger at CCP, and as much as I want to see ship spinning come back, I have to agree with this quote:

T'Renn > hooray! though I suspect a week or so after ship spinning has returned, you will have inevitable bittertroll talking about how they miss the brown door.

Andreus Ixiris > A Civire without a chin is barely a Civire at all.

Pieter Tuulinen > He'd be Civirely disadvantaged, Andreus.

Andreus Ixiris > ...

Andreus Ixiris > This is why we're at war.

Good, now how about giving us back the option to store unlimited number of fittings locally instead 50 on the server?

Heh - you do remember what CCP Soundwave suggested, right? For an amount of money you can raise the number of fits you can save... It was only a suggestion, but it sure would explain why there is a limit if CCP is fixing to moneytize off of certain game-functions...
CCP should simply come clean about the fittings kock-up. If CCP feels the business need to charge for extra fittings slots, then they should simply do it and be done. Depending on what CCP offered, I would consider making the purchase to get rid of the infernal 'your personal fittings allocation is full, go **** off, you wanker' message every time I try to save a fitting.

Also, CCP never publicly addressed why they stated that they were going to allow for the 51st and above fittings to be saved locally, but never followed through with that promise.

We are paying for a service that was misrepresented.

All CCP has to do is come clean and either charge us or tell us to **** off. Sounds like a perfect task for "$1k Jeans" Zulu or "Actions>Words" Hilmar.

Rather than a checkbox in the escape menu, you will simply be able to board and unboard your ship, toggling between Captain‘s Quarters and Ship Spinning mode. Your client will remember your last choice, so if you left your station while boarded, you will be boarded the next time you find yourself in a station and vice versa.

Oh my, if this is true, I'll have to maintain this account and re-sub my others. And here I was, almost starting to have a real life.

I would much prefer if the fitting window effectively replaced the "ship boarded" background. Much more functional as the fitting window is usually a PITA to have open and is always in the way. Why not drag mods to the ship in the background to fit? I don't think anyone who wants to spin a ship actually cares if its visually in a hangar or not.

That's a cool idea, like when docked in hangar have the fitting template as an overlay or something like that.

Those of us who like our CQ though will still need the normal fitting window..

And I get the same functionality as before Incarna by tiling my Ships and Assets windows below my station services on the right side of the window, no functionality lost really.

About time, back to the good old days Bear

Less CPU & RAM usage, makes a difference when running more than 1 character

Question: Why did it take so long to hear us ?

All you need to do now is to sort out the level 4 distrubution missions that pay less than level 1's !!

Thanks CCP for finally taking notice of your customer base.

It will take a lot more work to get my confidence back fully!
