LOL at Newcastle Brown Ale - see you there - am imagining this is part of the Dust team rather rather than Eve as we know it - afaik the team valley office is Dust development rather than Eve? Either way should be interesting meeting Dust folks and fellow northern Eve nerds and possiby a nerdette or two.

Can someone near there go to this event and ask what CCP really want to do next with this mess called unified UI? Will CCP REAL listen to its paying customers or just simulate interest again- but wont change anything?

Sorry for my harsh words. But I pay for this game since more than 4 years but am not able to PLAY since 22.05.2012 because of this sh!t unified UI. Burn it in hell and rebuild the old one with your new shiny code! Evil

If someone from CCP claims that they did something to improve this mess I have to say that they absolute did nothing for MY and many others concerns. Sure they did something.. but, as always, the wrong things.



Callidus,
I recently saw your posting. I am sorry to hear that a fellow -paying- customer is unable to play. I have to say that I am less than happy with this 'NEW' unified UI as well. I find it to be less than stellar. Not to mention it seems to be click intensive in order to get to where it is that I want to go now.
I understand the need for advancement of the game, development of new things to keep the game moving forward. However, I do not believe this was a good move. Testing things on the "Test Server" is a good way to get feedback. But that implies that a large number of people use the test server to get a proper evaluation. But what works on the "Test Server" with 50, or 100, or 500 players. May not go over so well when it goes into game play with 5,000 players.
As for the request that you made. I do not think talking to whoever is going to be at the event is going to be of any use. As I was reading on the forums a few days ago (perhaps a couple weeks really) some interesting posts. I though that I was the only one that noticed the 'tree driven UI' that is very similar to that of so many diffeent games for PS3 and Xbox. Games like "Call of Duty", "Modern Warfare", and a whole slew of others.
In a nutshell I think that we, the PC players are stuck with this for the duration. There is no escapeing it. This is a result of the 'powers that be' & corp. big wigs at CCP made the call on the DUST platform. By going with the PS3 platform (or Xbox if that had been the choice), ALL of the PC players have to be gimped into using a UI that someone with 2 joystick, 4 buttons, and 4 'bumper' buttons can access and navigate.
Honestly for all of the programming skill, effort, & energy that has been put forward on this venture. I would have thought by now that someone would have found or invented a better way to do this. After all why slight one group ( the Eve PC players ), in favor of a new game platform. Where the game/content are not even really enterchangeable.

I shall be coming.

I made it to Fanfest and the recent London meet. It would be very poor form of me to not make the 90 min drive North from Yorkshire.

Besides I would like to express my dissatisfaction with UI and my love of Dust 514.

See you there.
