Already in the works, and SISI will be stuffed with it...

My 2 cents...



Interesting theory, from the link;

"The universe data contains, for example: the positions for all systems, planets, gates, asteroid belts and the asteroids in these belts... (the new system) gives us much more flexibility for changing game data."

"The current plan is to deploy this in early February"


So the question is, why do they need more flexibility with the positioning of celestial items ?

I'd imagine it would help with the lag issue, as well as general overhead.

Secret to happiness is low expectations.

Don't get your hopes up and if this does turn out to be anything of note, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Getting excited about something you know nothing of and applying your boundless imagination to it is just going to set you up for disappointment.

You mean so you and your Corp/Alliance can press F1? You can do the same with an Asteroid you know.....

My prediction is the announcement of the next expansion. :)

Maybe its paving the way for destroyable celestial objects? Stations, moons, gates, ect.

I wondered if it was so they could move all the systems further apart if needs me for Jump drive difficulty or something. make some regions that are currently not that great by having their systems closer together in LY and vice versa.

I.E a region may be easier to defend but won't be as good money wise

If you've never tried PvP in EvE it's quite possible you've missed out on one of the greatest rushes available in modern gaming.

I guess it could be paving the way for future changes such as player built gates or destroyable stations. Those would be major content changes, they would not come out between releases.

But the timing of this change (early feb) fits well with the countdown, maybe its a live ingame event related to this change.

Is it too soon for Eve Valkyrie? Like maybe some kind of alpha/beta test? I noticed they added a Valkyrie section to the forums recently.

Well played you rat bastages.




Ha ha ha.. I stopped reading the replies once I saw this so if it was answered I do not know but.....

This is exactly how CCP thinks. There is no doubt that the count down was put there with no description for the sole fact to screw with us and make us wonder.

Im sure it is counting down to "something" though since April is too far away.

I think is more likely the coutndown until all the AI form the titans wrecks in BR connect enough to reach sentience and rebuild themselves as a 500 Km super Tiatn that will roam 0.0 all by itself destroying everything on its path.

Hm, that would allow to introduce some in-game events that really change more or less in real time the scape of the region they take place in dynamically.

Another great piece of CCP advertising at work.

Step 1: Create countdown timer

Step 2: Put it on the main community page

Step 3: Tell no one wtf it is.

Step 4: Profit???
