I do not like the watch list changes - not knowing when someone is online or not screws up knowing when to look for them.

And the reason given by CCP Lebowski as to why - It's not Eve like, - is Foolish.

Please return the watch list back to what is was - as I like the war part of this game and this is a key tool for it.

Also - come up with a better reason.


Thank you

CCP sound design skill is at lvl 1.... Please remove the kill bong its ****.. Ugh

Also stop forcing me to use "the new camera" its **** too... the old one doesnt need to be improved its perfect as it is now..

If people want to make vids with the new camera just let them activate it in the settings menu. (like it is now)

Why ? Just... why ?

My GPU just got +5° just because of that and I started only ONE account. With all of them started, obviously I am over the usual temperatures. When most of your time is in station, that is great news.

And so... why ? To force the players to swing their ships in station ?

Seriously, restore this function please for the sake of our GPUs and stop fixing what isn't broken...


Pretty please. My computer fan is working overtime and it still can't handle this change.

Edit:
Sorry CCP. Just now found the post where you said you were removing it on purpose; I thought it was a bug. Please ignore.

NPC kill sound is annoying, very annoying. Also, it's followed by "X-animation" sound - two sounds for a single event.
Plus, this "hong" sound in like nothing in EVE - all other sounds are tech-like.

For gods sake put the station environment opt out back. How ever cool the ship spinning might be, I'll rather take the increased performance and a GPU that doesn't yell in agony.

Put. It. Back! Evil

I've not heard one person say they like the kill gong, please remove it tomorrow with the extended downtime that you'll need to fix the rest of the bugs!

Also I was really looking forward to Project Discovery. Now using it I'm hugely disappointed. the UI is annoying (not as annoying as the kill bong), when hovering over the examples it's hard to remember which one I was looking at!

We all know Eve is risk V reward but I feel PD needs more rewards.. I know there's no risk of getting blown up but there's a risk I'm going to need Broadcast4Reps if I even attempt to try and get 75k worth of points for the SoE suit. So I think you'll see a fall off of people doing this unless there are more varied rewards (not ISK) or the reward points are higher?

Yes I don't have to play the mini game (and I wont be) but it would be nice to help science while waiting for fleets etc.

This killsound and as well the blinky thing when a target is destroyed made feel like Playing WOW in Space.

I have no idea who comes up with stuff like that as this is not fitting with eve general graphic direction.

EvE always had a Tech like Graphic and sound and implementing stuff like this or the new scanning window and map makes me feel that you guys really try to create wow in space.
But in my opinion this is the wrong direction!

^This. The stupid kill bong and the animation are so out of place.
What was wrong with the old animation? It was subtle and did its job.

So, why???

Seems like some guys from Treyarch took over control in CCPs UI team... Ugh

Can you at least make the feature respect the Camera Bobbing toggle?

I know this is a fringe case, but I do a decent amount of connecting to EVE via Teamviewer to monitor things and the bobbing just kills the bandwidth with a lot of extra movement. If that toggle also turned off all animations in the window, that would be ideal but that does seem a bit beyond.

Please reconsider the kill bong and the kill animation. Eve is such an aesthetic game,but this is like constant sneezing and coughing in a concert.

I noticed that The Scope video's now play in my Captain's Quarters. This is nice and fun, but ...

  1. the news shown is rather behind the times (Operation Frostfire has ended quite a while ago)
  2. where is the remote control, so I can turn the sound off (and perhaps back on -- if there is an option under Audio I've managed to miss it).


I'm one of those people who likes to hang out in their Captain's Quarters from time to time, but having The Scope on repeat isn't working for me. Either switch them to play less often, and it would make sense to play new episodes of The Scope, not just older ones which certainly aren't "Breaking News" anymore

The Kill Bong is horrible; and its animation effect nearly as bad. It's Beyond annoying and doesn't fit the game in the least. Please remove ASAP.

Please put the watchlist back the way it was. The change is ridiculous and it's getting old with CCP "fixing" things that were never broken. How about fixing the things that are actually broken and stop messing with mechanics that are, and have been, fine. On/offline notification of war targets is essential. To remove this is poor judgement and just plain dumb. Knowing someone is online doesn't tell you where they are..just that they are online..a necessary thing to know if only a few wts are on or 100. Is CCP going to remove locators next too? Shocked

I'm not sure what's going on over there at CCP..but you are not helping the game. Please stop messing with tried and true mechanics in an attempt to look like you are making "improvements"..and actually add some new content to the game. Ugh

"Buddy list"...pshh...90% of the ppl who watchlist are watchlisting targets..not friends. How ridiculous is it that when I want to watchlist a wt that I have to ask "hey wt, is it cool if I add an online notification to your red status?" Roll

I love this game...but what is going on here. What?

EDIT: ..and why does it still show my alts offline..even when i cleared standing.and reset it on both ends. Roll

If I had a nickel for every time someone said women don't play eve, I'd have a bag of nickels to whack the next person who said it..

Please allow disabling the new camera marquee select, or at least assign it to a different key. I've had TS assigned to the right ctrl key for over 5 years now, and it's going to be hard to adjust.

Give back the old watchlist PLEASE.
People can share ingame chat windows or teamspeak with their buddies where they can see if online or not, we don't need a popup for that!!!

Targets who even dont know yet that they are a target is what we need on the watchlist for god sake.

I play this game every day for 7 years now and pay for several accounts dont make me quit EVE and download pokemon.

Give the one who tries to destroy EVE his resignation or loose subscribers.

My first forum post ever, i just can't let this go Ugh
