- performance "improvements" forcing me from some high most medium to full potato mode within 3 years on same hardware
- new scan interface / map, also d-scan hotkey is a huge mistake
- new Neocom icons, I still misclick too often

I'm my own NPC alt.

I don't know why so many of you are against skill injectors. Yes, it surely makes P2W possible, but without it, it would be "whoever subscribed earlier who wins" (even not "whoever plays longer who wins"), which I consider far worse. Not to mention how to define "win" in EVE. I'm a pretty new player who has only played for 10 months. I've only spent $15 on this game, and now have 26.6mil SP (that's about 25 skill injectors) and about 5bil asset.

Not to mention that injectors don't come out of thin air. Someone had to extract those sp.

not to mention that you are talking crap.
the game is not: first who started, first to win.
it's: who use the best position/moment to take action --> win

if a bigger alliance drop a fleet of 20 man without backup and you newbies have 200 people logged in, even in ceptors....
i wonder who is gonna win
viceversa, you guys are in your worst timezone and you are fighting a big blob... oh wait... i wonder who is gonna win...

EvE Was Patience Itself! waiting for the right occasion, the right fight with the right odds and waiting for the damn skills!

now is as any other game, you don't have to wait. casuals everywhere. ******* casuals!

your account in from 2k16... you learnt nothing in the meantime... i see Cool

Good point, and glad to change thoughts directly with an old player who's against the injectors. I agree that whoever uses the best position/moment to take actions who wins, but I'd still like the option of injectors in case that I have the right occasion, the right fight with the right odds, but lack 1-2 weeks of skill training, so that I don't have to let the opportunity slip and wait for those damn rights again.
And even with the injectors and thus insta-skill-training, a newbie still need patience to learn how to pilot those ships.
EVE is Patience itself. I'm pretty patient learning this game. EVE does have a learning cliff, so don't expect me to learn everything/anything in less than one year Bear.

BTW did I misuse the phrase "not to mention"?

you're patient to LEARN but not TO WAIT for the skills.....
smh

why don't both???
old players all started at 0 SP.
you want fight them?? skills are hard capped at lvl5, plan your next 5-6 years of skills training to reach a point when you can fight on equal skills and all that's left is knowledge of the game ^^

Overview icons.
I think most of the so called UI improvements are rubbish, but the new Overview icons were almost game breaking for me. I could write a long rant about them and still wouldn't feel any better the next time I have to look at them. Btw, this makes being able to create and use my own custom Overview icons my current no 1 wish in EvE.

Dumbing down the game.
I came to EvE because of the complexity of the game, its depth. EvE stood out as a game where player skill mattered more than character skill. Unfortunately CCP is removing all the good stuff bit by bit. Apparently they try to cater for people with an attention span that is measured in microseconds. (Pshht... CCP, I tell you a secret: These people won't stay focused on EvE for long.... because they have an attention span that is measured in microseconds.)

old players also started with learning skills, no skill queue, no wormholes (and associated t3's), no capital ships, no lvl 4 missions, no incursions, no faction warfare, and no reason to fly anything other than winmatar... y'know, while we are mentioning things from the "good ol days"

and your right, skills are hard capped it lvl5. so what does it matter to you if they got there in a year, or 3 years, or 5. why is it a bad thing that someone can start actually engaging in the game the way they want too in a shorter amount of time, it puts more ships in space, which creates more content, which is better for everyone.
