#1 Odyssey and the lowering of the bar of exploration and its resulting market crash.
#2 The staleness of New Eden. The Drifter menace is a potential change for that, maybe.

#3 The never ending steady supply of Moon Goo. You want to shake things up? Make Capitals relevant? Make Sov worth having? Make null sec dynamic? Make Moon Goo finite! Force moon surveys as moons become barren of resources and require months to "regen" before being worth the fight for. 'if the the Moon rich want to stay that way then they have to follow the goo.

I gots DEVBLOGS and DEV posts for mine:

1. The 1st Anom Nerf which set up the conditions that resulted in most of sov null becoming a rental desert

2. Heavy Missile Nerf (which eventually led to an un-nerf that was spot on)

3. Aegis Sov... Self explanatory to very many of us who live in null. Every fleet I've been in that has to deal with a sov issue, there are lots of descriptions of virulent and deadly diseases spoken of on comms...

Must be said though, very many things CCP has done have worked out well as far as I'm concerned.

The launcher (thankfully we can still use the .exe for now).

Removing the jukebox.

Honourable mentions to the awful new icons, the CSM and exploration changes.
#45 - 2015-09-10 18:42:56 UTC
1: the new ridiculous metro UI icons.
2: Aurum and/or MT.
3: Jump Fatigue
x: Fozzie SOV ...

Did I mention the dreadful new icons ?

and not in that order.

CCP Quant: Of all those who logon in Eve, 1.5% do Incursions, 13.8% PVP and 19.2% run Missions while 22.4% mine.

40.7% Join a fleet. The idea that Eve is a PVP game is false, the social fabric is in Missions and Mining.

ISHTAR nerfed

This post sums up why the 'best' work with DCM inc.

WARP DRIVE makes eve boring

1) Icons
2) crimewatch/elimination of can flipping
3) duels

Since 2 and 3 are really one item - the pushing of eve to a more consensual pvp plane I am giving myself one more slot.

4) Entrosis link - which wouldnt be such a bad thing if it was limited to sov - since most people dont sov and eve can continue to exist even with a broken fozziesov -but it is going to be hugely terrible when it is applied to structures.

As a bouns:

5) Bounties still broken - being utterly useless/pointless.

2. The Marauder
2.5 Bastion Mode

3. Jump Freighters

Should also squeeze in Moon Goo somewhere...

Since it is kind of EVE related, I am still a bit pissed off about Dust 514 not on PC.

1, 2 and 3

The priority to what gets updated and released first. SOV needed a lot more in game features to really make it shine, as it stands, the donut is still present. The fleet changes are a good example of "let's fix it this way… oh wait that won't work, need more time" while (though I don't own SoV, I have lived in null for a while) SOV mechanics where push and pushed (understanding that they where a part 1 to 256) and it feels like something is just missing.

- Give CCP enough time and the gaps will be filled in and fixed. I just feel like someone sold me a Ferrari- but didn't include the engine

1. WiS
2. Jukebox removal
3. Nullified Interceptors

Workarounds are not bugfixes.

- super caps, they should never have been introduced
- the current crimewatch, too much dumbing down
- T3D, same as super caps. They're just wrong

Captain's Quarters and WiS - Could have been good but implementing it half-baked and then just leaving it?!?
Removing jetcan mining and all its related shenanigans - Bluff / double-bluff all gone. Was a great way to introduce players to PvP
Exploration changes - Dumbing it down, adding the mini-game, changed it from a profession that took some serious dedication to everyone's side hobby.

Still waiting on completion of the Tiericide changes - the game seems to have lost more than it gained, bland is not good.

Balances - in New Eden a Mercedes can only be a maximum of 5% better than a Skoda.

Additional currencies - Aurum, PLEX.

Impossible changes - like when my beloved Sleipnir became a crappy Hurricane.

And a mention, of course, for the icons.
