Weapons upgrades that increase damage, but reduces fire rate leaving overall damage the same. In other words- volley damage mods.

change the DC icon - after all, it's not like anyone will be upset by it....

For posting an idea into F&I: come up with idea, try and think how people could abuse this, try to fix your idea - loop the process until you can't see how it could be abused, then post to the forums to let us figure out how to abuse it..... If your idea can be abused, it [u]WILL[/u] be.

Change the artwork of eve ships.


Don't kid yourselves. Even the dirtiest pirates from the birth of EVE have been carebears. They use alts to bring them goods at cheap prices and safely, rather than live with consequences of their in game actions on their main, from concord to prices

Continuously "rebalance" ships and modules, forcing players to vest time in scanning the forums and analyzing patch notes rather than spending time in game. Of course, players don't really need to spend time forum surfing or trying to grok patch notes if they don't mind undocking with a ship that no longer works as it did previously to face other ships which have changed in unexpected ways as well.

Instead, how about bringing increased modularity to more ship hulls like those available to the T3 strategic cruisers -- without making T3 versions of everything -- and then introducing new modules and mechanics which will eventually drive the old, "bad" ships and modules into obsolescence and to the eventual fate of being "reprocessed" for minerals and components or hidden away in hangers as "collectibles."

Seriously, is the eventual goal of "tiericide" and all the "rebalancing" to end up with all ships of a given class essentially equivalent if outfitted with some near optimal configuration which accounts for intended tank or weapon "bonuses?" Thank God -- or the appropriate entity of your choice -- the "meta" game of alliance, betrayal, espionage, etc. which has been a hallmark of Eve Online from the earliest days is not so easily "rebalanced" or it might already have been reboxed -- and emptied of sand -- into yet another PvP arena game...

Continue having PvE combat be completely distinct from PvP so that no one ever learns even the most basic requirements of PvP fitting until switching to the PvP mini-game. I.e. Continue "hit percentage" based combat for NPC ships who are also immune to certain PvP "intended" modules while ensuring that most NPC ships have predictable "strengths" and "weaknesses" which enable optimal NPC farming techniques, all for the sake of collecting unreasonably outsized "bounties" and diminishingly valuable loot ...

All ships in New Eden should be fit for PvP regardless of "mission." PvE today incentivizes alternate fits which only demonstrate their unsuitability when the "gankers" show up. If nothing else, "gankers" should have to work harder to earn their "tears."

A module which warps you exactly 1 AU in a forward direction, much like the MJD, but with a very long cooldown time (30min plus).

Fair enough. Just read the first line of each. The rest is carping unlikely to faze CCP in any case...

If you bump someone using a ship that has spikes on the front (e.g. Phantasm, Dramiel), the spikes impale their ship; if their ship is smaller than yours, you get to carry them around wherever you go, whereas you'll be the helpless passenger if you get stuck on a bigger ship than yours.
