Probing--The exploration tutorial arc does a decent job of teaching how to probe for exploration sites--although it could be more explicit about how to position probes vis-a-vis why one must use 4 probes minimum--but has, again, nothing at all about combat-probing, how to do it, and how to use the d-scanner to check if you're being probed.

I would LOVE to see [exploration] taught to newer players so they have more interesting content available to them early in their careers. The more diversity of income sources new players are empowered to take advantage of, the better we can retain them as long-term customers. The current system where new players are forced into two revenue streams (mining and missioning) is boring and washes many players out.


The tutorial does teach exploration, the modules involved and such, but not as well as it could... I remember having to look up an EVE-Uni guide to learn what I now consider essential information. I actually read the mission primers, too. ;) The message of the day at the top of the newbie help channel (placed there by the ISDs) screams to newbies that they must scan a site with four probes to 100 percent to get a warpin. Probing questions are common there, and the most common response is someone hotlinking a YouTube probing guide with several others saying, "yes, watch that, it helped me out so much". Hell, the ISDs link the YouTube probing guide.

Actually, if you want to know how to improve the tutorial and make the learning 'cliff' a little easier to scale, make a new character and spend a while helping out on the newbie help channel. Some questions are born of the player not reading the tutorial text, some because the tutorial doesn't adequately describe a game mechanic. There are some very common questions in there, or there were a few months ago when I was in there, and those questions are where to start when improving the system.


That is a real issue pandemic to the NPE--new players should learn the basics of the game, through tools available in game--why is this such a huge blind-spot in EVE? Always has been, AFAIK.

Star Wars: the Old Republic may not be EVE. But I'll take the sound of dual blaster-pistols over "NURVV CLAOKING NAOW!!!11oneone!!" any day of the week.

Kinda like this fight? Big smile

WHAT!?!

You won one .. this will not do! I shall have words with our commanders for sure Big smile

FW actually has quite a lot of the big fights (100+ on grid, weekend ISK sinks!), both with and without capitals dropped. Both sides have bait-POS setup in locations meant to annoy the opposition and POCO's have started attracting attention .. although those are probably just used as excuses to have a romp.
Beauty of it is that even when "blobby" there is still room for independent thought/prowess .. if sizes keep going up that won't hold true much longer though, but hopefully we have mechanics to encourage skirmishing at that point so all is well.

Does CCP poll incoming players in regards to NPE quality/content and if so is the polling done too soon for the pilot to be able to give an informed answer? We old-timers probably have a hard time thinking back to days of yore and tend to evaluate it based on our current "state" .. something for the ISD to do me'thinks.

I see the next term as the hot topic (inferno pun intended) for warfare and crimewatch issues in its many forms.

As such the wealth of experience you have in these areas I see as vital for the next term of the CSM and think it would be a tragedy not to see you as a prominent figure of CSM7.

This thread has a lot of hope for actually getting a decent representative for empire game mechanics.

If they are going to be rewriting this code during CSM7 then we NEED Hans on the committee. Null never really has to worry about these mechanics, and if CCP plans on changing the rules the players need someone to let ccp know what has/hasn't worked and what players are looking for that they cannot get with the current mechanics.

GO HANS

Yes, of course I'm planning to keep on shooting some of my voters! Just because the militias have united behind me politically doesn't mean we aren't going to cross swords on Tranquility. Same with those flashy pirates :)

If I set everyone blue that voted for me I'd pretty much run myself out of reasons to play the game overnight. I'm pretty sure I'm the only candidate whose supporters include large amounts of enemies.

No one should read much into my contacts settings, I'm setting everyone I add to neutral here so it impacts gameplay the least. If you're friend or foe, there will be other indicators on my overview that end up determining that.

Good question though, glad you brought it up!

In case any of you have missed my various radio and podcast appearances, I’ve linked a summary of them all on my blog. Stop by and listen! The latest addition to the list was my EvE News 24 interview with Sindel Pellion.

I’ve seen some recent questions to follow up on, I haven’t forgotten and I should get back to you all by the end of the day.

Unfortunately I missed the EVE-Radio one. However the VoV and News24 Interviews were good and you seemed very organized, well thought out and consistent. I cracked up about what happend in the VoV intereview.

I was, however, slightly disappointed. I expected your voice to be manlier Blink.

P.S. Who was bleeding in the News24 one at the end their?

My wife was attacked by our cat, so I had to take a moment and make sure she was alright before going back to the interview.

He wishes he was. He's just developed the nasty habit of jumping up and clawing her face whenever he wants attention.

Preaching to the choir. He just came with my wife, they were a package deal. At least he abuses her and not me for whatever reason.

I have spent the last few days reading through the whole campaign.

You convinced me. You will have my two votes, and I'll talk about you to my contacts.

Let's stand for a revamped empire !

Edit: Funny, I was listening to this song, and the lyrics made me think of the CSM7 election, when you interpret them thinking about EvE.

I haven't read your 'mission statement' but I would say that I firmly believe mining is not broken and does not need fixing. If you don't like mining or find it boring please go and choose another profession. Leave mining to those who like to mine. Smile

I am looking to vote for someone to vote for who is not not focused just on nul sec - indeed someone who is maybe slightly biased in favour of low & high sec to 'even the odds' - but I will avoid voting for anyone who is going to propose 'fixing' mining.
