CCP hasn't done a decent expansion since Apocrypha, why would you think this time will be any different ...

No, just tedious. OTOH, the low IQ crowd that loves to troll game fora will no doubt soon start complaining about "dumbing down" the game under the premise that it requires intelligence to do things in a tedious manner...

when they tell us what they actually intend to do, there should be some good tears in here, even the coming soon page hints about how limited some of the changes are going to be

Also, why are you even here if you hate it so much? It's like a breathing definition of insanity.

The new scanning systems seems like more of the dumbing down of eve!

because essentially, dragging and dropping little cubes and then clicking "scan" was already the epitome of difficult, right?

It's a pity that I'm leaving on May 22nd. But maybe then I will have packed enough iSK and interest to bother buying a
PLEX for Ishtanchuk... or very likely they will just send another "60 days for 20 euros" offer and spare me some grinding. Lol

I'm more of a moral realist, with a healthy dose of pragmatic pessimism, but I'm stoic about that. I don't follow the cynic philosophy at all.

Sounds interesting and I really like the theme.

However if I'd have to pick either drone UI or scanner UI from the two of my most used specific UIs, I'd choose drone UI for revamping.

"Discovery Scanner

Using this new system, more pilots will reveal the hidden secrets of the EVE Universe. Beautiful new visuals, customizable controls and new functionality have been added to encourage the adventurer in everyone."

Translation: We're dumbing down exploration for the geometrically challenged. By lowering the IQ bar we hope to get more DUST players into EvE.


"A New "Spacescape"

A rebalance of major areas of space from highsec to nullsec include changes in exploration sites, industrial resources, some types of NPC loot and more…"

Translation: We're adding a new officer module that give +20% to Margin Trading.


"The Little Things

Continued development towards raising accessibility without removing functionality will bring dozens of changes to player-owned starbases, game UI and beyond."

Translation: We're changing the interface again, without any player input again, and will ignore all player feedback again after we've done it.


"The War Machines

Forged by the lessons learned from countless combat pilots, the four factions will issue forth with the latest tools of war and re-designs of old favorites - ships as awe-inspiring as they are deadly."

Translation: Pirate faction rookie ships! Buy yours today, only 250,000,000ISK each! Tomorrow they'll be going for 5,000ISK but so what? Buy moar PLEX, plebs!

"The Storyline Continued

The shared EVE Universe storyline continues to evolve following the Battle for Caldari Prime, with participatory events spawning unique player stories in two games at once."

Translation: We're going to keep driving our story train down these rails and you're welcome to continue watching & pretending that you're actually a part of it as we, the Almighty Devs, continue to act out our scripts as planned.



So much whine, someone get me some cheese!

This one actually sounds interesting.

It will be nice to see as they flesh it out.

Any spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors are because frankly, I don't care!!

So many people, throwing such a fit over some broad statements. Might wanna wait till some more details come out before you have an aneurysm.
