I cant wait to see how this stuff works could be great :)

Also all of this information is on the eve fanfest 2012 live stream. There is a free version and the stream replays earlier events and news.
Im also guessing ccp will put out dev blogs n the videos will be on youtube.


it really is sad that so many people think evetv stream is catching all the presentations you realize every hour theres like 6-8 round tables going at the same time, and evetv only covers 1 for each timeslot right?

I think that this presentation should have had precedence over others on EVE tv, because it seems that the impact on the gameplay by this stuff could be really heavy and we're really near to it since it comes with Inferno.

I hope we'll get to see the presentation on youtube soon, and I look forward to the devblogs.

I liked some of the ideas presented, new modules are always nice.

I'm curious how the micro jump drive will work. It could add some interesting tactics.

The Adaptive shielding or whatever it is that adjust resists by what's shot at you might be interesting.

yea!.... new mechanics!

now to the important stuff.... drone damage bonus modules (and hopefully implants too) - how soon & how much? Having the Drone Elite certs should mean doing more than 450 dmg, even if it is cap free.... do them high-slot (to effectively cap total damage) or low-slot (like gyrostabs, etc) - just beef them to bring them in line with hybrids, etc.

That being said.....

Wouldn't the best solution be to just add a drone damage multiplier to the existing Drone Link Augmentor (or make 'Drone Link Augmentors' a class of modules that, like turrets, have different range & damage bonuses)

....chop chop CCP.... I know you can get this out by Thursday.... Big smile

The thing about Salvage Drones only salvage one wreck at a time and i need to lock the wrecks and sending my drones out, you should be rethink. I'm a missionrunner or flying anomalies, i'm not a miner who can send the mining drones out and forget about them while watching a movie. They are drones and can salvage maybe even loot alone.

And yes, i know that you are still working on them.

Not terribly fond of this idea of a "hard transition" between "seasons". Soft transition sounds a bit better. Using BPCs to do it is a good way to go about it.

It may also be a good idea to release those BPCs as LP items or from rat drops and not from the unlimited NPC market, or even a limited NPC market where first come would be first served. Dropping from rats or as LP items, could allow for lower bounties as well.

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.  - William Pitt

Adaptive armor resistance module is a buff to Winmatar pilots once more - their guns can change damage types.

After all the amazing stuff unveiled for us at Fanfest, all you can do is whine about how your carebearing could be made even easier. If you don't like the brand new, never-existed-before salvage drones, feel free to use regular salvagers.

Or better yet, just go on ahead and uninstall now.

Shocked either a half decent troll or a very funny misconception.
