Can we have some mineral buffs in NPC space null sec ? Might as well mine in high sec over NPC null sec same ore for less risk.

With the volume that is mined now with max skills one can only mine once cycle and then have to dump in a can ready for the next cycle. The problem with this is I can't fit a full spread of crystals and spares in aswell.

That's odd... I can. Maybe you're just trying to carry too many at once?

What are you doing with this game, we dont want all missions the same. Drone missions and cap drops in Complex's gave us material to build with. I do all levels of missions in all sizes of ship and have just done a L3 drone mission in a cruiser and not had one item of cargo. Let those of us in small corps play all aspects of the game.

CCP logic: Lets remove several of the major sources of minerals from the game at a time when mineral prices are on the rise. Sheer genius.

Now, can we have people who actually attended economics 101 creating policy please?

Mining with guns is bad. You can't rat/combat mission with mining lasers can you?

But drones could use items, seems uneven. Encourages blitzing drones regardless.

Removing drone loot seems silly,
They are self replicating drones, they mine and make more of themselves, you'd expect to find something in their wrecks, be it components, minerals etc.

Why didn't you just nerf the types of drone loot instead of removing them altogether.

It takes out an interesting, different piece of lore from Eve, now drones are like any other pirate rat.
Is your next plan to put bounties on sleepers and remove their drops? maybe make them have regular salvage too?

*conspiracy hat on*
Is this just another way to turn Eve into "Internet spaceship game I"

I look forward to the ship renaming.

Rifter will become "Small Minmatar Prototype Ship"
Atron will become "Small Gallente Experimental Ship"
Dominix will become "Large Gallente Ship I"

It may be extreme, but it seems the ultimate aim of the "dumbing down" strategy that you seem to be embarking on to attempt to drag the WoW and FPS Playstation fanboys kicking and screaming into New Eden.

Hard to get excited about 3 nerfs in one blog.



but.. think of the miners dude! They need love too <3


Thank you CCP Affinity. Thank you for coaxing 0.0 miners back out so I can shoot them again. Twisted



I loled :)

But it is true a mining barge is a much slower and there fore easyer target to get then a rating ship.

Is it a rock point a lazer at it and profit. Is it a ship point a lazer at it and profit. I dont see any problems here.
