Same, turned it all off as well (same as EVERYONE else I know in the game btw). And I agree that the new Character page is a total over designed pain in the ass that does not work.


OK, we don't know each other.
For the record:

I like the new warp tunnel, the new map, the new scanner and as far as I could see yesterday the new character sheet is also an improvement. It's much clearer to see which skills you already have and which ones are missing.
Also, bragging with the sum of all ranks per category was not possible before. That alone entertained us few vets for awhile. :-D
And EVE definitely needs LESS windows that can be independently resized, clutter the screen and randomly stack/resize with other windows if your mouse actions are a bit clumsy.

(still, Aura... :-/)

The new voices are ****, at least give us an option to keep the old one... Now it seems like it was "here girl grab that mic, say whats on this list, add some effect on it and there we go. All done in 5 minutes..." derp..

Maybe add something like more different voices, i mean, not every ship has the same "voice software" right ?

Also stop "fixing" things that arent broken... omg !! It only adds more empty checkboxes in the settings menu..

Then i opened my skillque and tadaa, waaay more buttons then needed when just want to drag and drop skills to my que from a list i can easily scroll through. If i wanted to see my whole character sheet ill just click the character icon above it tyvm CCPlz..


U did do something right tho, ship explosions are pretty now =)

Since we are to be stuck with these awful mining boost changes, It would be nice if we could get a couple minor changes in regards to mining drones:

1. Please bump down the bandwidth usage of Ice Harvester Drones down to 30mbit from 50, so that our Orcas may be allowed to also launch a few combat drones. Lowering to 30mbit would still prevent launching 2 ice harvester drones, as you seem to intend, while allowing us to fend off attackers with a few hobgoblins.

2. Please increase the travel speed of Ice Harvester Drones. I understand that you don't want us to have "insta-travel" drones, but ice fields are very wide. Some ice asteroids are easily 15-30km away and the Ice Harvester Drones are painfully slow. Added with the already slow Orca speed, it takes a long while to get in range to alleviate the drone travel delays.

3. Could we have a drone mining command shortcut key, or add "mining" to the existing "F" shortcut key for attack/salvage drones? It know it doesn't sound like much, but having to go to the drone window, right click on the mining drone and select "mine repeatedly" gets a little annoying after a while, when a simple key press could do the same thing.

What.....?

Ugh


thats a pretty terrible response to a PAYING CUSTOMER. This sort of response just highlights the VERY POOR customer service that CCP feel is acceptable.




They must hate money because I rather set mine on fire than give it to ccp now.

After nearly 10 years feel really let down with the way they treat people but sure they are backed up by those drone players who defend them at everything.


Devs, do you even care if we stay? What did we do to inspire you so thoroughly to detest us as your playerbase? Are you so arrogant as to think your success doesn't hinge on how many people play? I am baffled and confused regarding this "expansion", and your attitudes toward us as your players and the heart of your company. You took away all that we related to for a decade or more and then flippantly act like teenagers toward our reaction. If you no longer want us to play, say so clearly and stop with the subtle hints.

Yay! Been over 24 hours since I can't access one of my accounts because of the awesome last minute 2FA switch! Support planning on getting this resolved any time soon or can I expect game time since I'm being denied that and job time as that acct has jobs finished as well or are we just gonna get a giant bite of the **** sandwich?

Having played for a while since the change, I find as a miner that one handy skill has clearly been dropped. I can no longer click on an asteroid in space to target. I have to use the overview instead. How did you manage to break this?

Still finding new Aura annoying. Please use the original files where possible, and a decent recording for all the new stuff. It can't be that difficult.

Tried to use the skillpage again. Tried is the operative word. This is no longer an instinctive scan of information, or ease of scrolling through large amount of information.

Was this tested by any long term players at all? Are any of the designers of this actually players of this game?

Oh wait, don't answer that. I say that because you didn't answer it the last time it was asked...or the time before.

My patience with the half-arsed implementation of substandard 'updates' is beginning to wear thin.

Weirdly enough, I was going to use an alt in alpha mode...up until the point where I find he can fly Amarr only...with somewhat limited usefulness. Ah well. Nevermind..

There are way too many ec rigs. Also why are they rigs in the first place? The market changes all the time - so if the market tanks on what I'm making - i'm supposed to adapt by stripping out my expensive t2 rigs and replacing them with something else?

New Icons for Omega items in hangars looks just like tech 2 What?. I cannot find items anymore. At least not as quick. This was untested and its unneeded feature.

At least remove those icons for Omega. I dont want to see icons that mean nothing to me and mess with my cargo hold and hangars visibility.

If only you could look at them up close for the screenshots. They did something with the camera and it doesn't stay focussed (long enough) on the ship that is about to explode. Just when you start to see the pretty explosion the camera turns back to your won ship.

The skill groups in the new and 'improved' character sheet don't sort by alphabetical order.

You changed Leadership skills to Fleet Support but didn't change the name on the market.

You used to be able to add more than 1 level of a skill to the skill queue without right clicking it every single time. This new skill sh!t sucks ****.

Your game patches make you look like amateurs.

Not today spaghetti.

The new training queue display is a step back


The old display was clear and simple. Split vertically it allowed the player to view a substantial part, if not all, of the training queue. This allowed easy and rapid checking of the skills queued for training, together with easy reordering or deletion of the same. The left half showed all of the categories of skills, in alphabetical order. Clicking the title of the category provided a list of the skills available for training, along with other helpful information.

The new display is now fixed, and horizontally split. The number of viewable skills in the queue is severely limited by the presence of the other two sections. If I want to see the available skills in the category I need to reduce the view of the training queue. If I wish to see the queue I need to restrict the view of the category's skills. The list of categories is always in the way; that can't be pushed to one side.

If I wanted to stack the old character and training windows I could; now that option is denied me.

The new setup is not as user-friendly as the old one, which I'd like returned.

I can't understand how CCP can "fix" a ton of things that weren't really broken (RIP Aura :P) yet we still don't have the ability to properly micromanage our drones. We've been waiting for that functionality for eons now.

They should make the training que a slide out side panel similar to the fitting window

I didn't log in on 15th but waited for a day and on 16th after the downtime I logged in.
No issues, alpha clone works, old account works, 2FA works.

I really miss the old wormhole activation sound from 2012 or so, wspace hasn't been what it used to be after it was changed.
As a paying customer I demand that you change it back to what it used to be.

Just kidding, shut up and take my money.

But I'm cancelling my auto-billing AGAIN because it's just wrong that it always switches on when I pay my sub.

+ Change made to the interface itself is nice. It seems more intuitive, especially the skill training and fitting.
+ Effects of ship explosions are absolutely amazing and pleasant to watch.

- The Omega icons are confusing. They should not be visible if a player is a subscriber. They are basically useless and there should be an option to disable them.
- New Aura voice is absolutely terrible. Many people are unhappy about it. It's fast, flat, oversimplified, sounds like a busy receptionist who doesn't have time to deal with you and really gives the impression of being done by amateurs. Original Aura voice was comfortable, smooth, warm, calming and relaxing. A pleasant companion on your travels through the dark space. The new voice is an absolute garbage and many people including myself have muted it because it's plain annoying. Why pick something that was good and replace it with this garbage, this I can't understand.

Please bring the old Aura voice back. At least introduce an option to switch to it for ISK or real currency. Listening to this new *improved* *thing* makes me wanna punch someone. Lack of the old Aura voice makes the space so much more empty.

Instead of letting your UI experts messing up perfectly fine interfaces, it would have been a really good idea to force them to create a better drone interface so we can actually have buttons for attack, return, orbit etc.



Thanks realizing they could have put those hours to fixing the damn drone interface everyone hates, instead of what they did to the character one that no one was complaining about until now, just made me sad....
