As discussed in the EVE Keynote at FanFest 2013, we are completely changing resource balancing in Odyssey. Here with two dev blogs to discuss these changes is CCP Fozzie.

In the main dev blog here, you can find a high level overview of the changes and our reasoning for them

In the companion dev blog here, you can learn all about the nitty gritty numbers.

Please post all feedback in this thread.

Ejaculoot!

What if your sole reason for being is simply to serve as a warning to others?

The surest sign of a good change.

One question and one immediate observation:

How much ice will actually be in the new belts? On of the main problem with the current design is that they simply are too large — even at a decent depletion rate, they'd stick around forever.

Secondly, those outpost slot increases are off by about one order of magnitude. The design goal should be that if you really max out an indy station, you should have 500–700 manufacturing slots… even these new numbers aren't nearly enough to get there.

Hey guys, just checking in to say I'm gonna go party hard at the pub crawl tonight, so I'll be doing most of my responding to feedback early next week instead of right away. Don't worry, I will read every single post in this thread while nursing my hangover.

I hope you guys enjoy the spoils of the huge amount of work Team Five O has put into these changes, and have fun on the markets.

Bottom line, another massive transfer of wealth from high sec to null sec and wh's.
Demand for high sec mins was just wiped out as null sec now is overflowing with low end mins in high sec ores.

And wh's no longer have a trit / pyerite scarcity issue.

Ok, so hubs are getting scramming rats and frigates..
Not sure if i like this or not, but hey, at least lowsec'll be full of explorers now.
Oh, and my Vagabond is getting some love, too.
All of this makes for quite an... ahem... explosive combination, doesn't it?

Friends are like cows: if you eat them, they die.

Ice anom sizes are tuned so that high sec is capable of providing about 80% of the ice needs of New Eden right now, if fully mined.

You mean...I'll be able to land on miners in w-space without ever having to drop probes?

It's...beautiful...

I approve of scarcity. Cool

Have fun on your drinkies.
