@GrandArtificer I represent the reality-based community. Jukebox is a total waste of dev/QA resources. I would rather have any other feature

Let Two Step know your thoughts, tweet @two_step_eve and #csmsummit - with enough pressure and responses we can get the ball really rolling here.

Do not forget that the CSM are there to represent us. If they ignore the thread, they cannot also ignore Twitter :)

64 signs and counting.

Signed. Their new idea is a nice touch, but we should have the option to play music the new way or to manually control the jukebox. Taking away key game components is never a good idea in any game.

Agreed. +1 to bring back the JB.

That having been said, I used to make PC games for quite a few years and I know that our decisions could and did seem apparently inexplicable from the outside sometimes. Communication and clarity are obviously helpful in this regard, so perhaps I could ask that if the JB can't, for some reason be brought back, perhaps an explanation for why the CCP devs/designers/management came to their decision would help...

Signed! +1!

To have the music play in context of fights etc. always annoyed me, because the fighting music s*cks! Give us back our ingame Musicbox! Switching to an outside player is not an option, because you get ripped out of eve every single time, maybe just because you want to turn down the volume of the song.

I mean srsly: maintaining a perfectly working piece of code like the good 'ol jukebox is not rocket science. It's one hour / year or something. At least give us an Interface-API for EVE, so that we can build an ingame Controlpanel for managing Foobar, Winamp or any other Musicplayer who supports that. Because this would be totally be much less maintenance than bring back the Jukebox.

The Jukebox was a nice feature. Removing it seems like a step backwards.

You have my vote, I really enjoyed the Jukebox and the old tunes and I'd like to bring it back.

After this update i have no music in EVE had to mute it due to the terrible uber techno that starts when ever i get in a fight and other tracks i never enjoyed .So many tracks i enjoyed and i never get to hear them any more.Some times i used to just drift around looking at planets and stuff and the music would draw me ,It was very immersive and its one i the major reasons i enjoy eve.

All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to Idea bring the juke box back ,

Please Big smile
You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist

Same here ... no reason to take away something when a simple check box would have done it.

Bring back the Jukebox or impliment a new player with the same functionality.
Add features, do not remove them.

Do not tell us that we need to tab out and use a third-party utility and then expect us to believe that the product we are paying for is somehow as good, or better, than pre-Retribution.
