Wasn't the old effect a lot laggier though? (I haven't seen many Cyno's tbh, and when I have it's only one or two of them at a time) although I imagine a lot of these capitals using this style effect would be pretty nice.

Please bring the old capital jumping sound and visual back. The new one is very bland and disappointing.

I agree, it's underwhelming, to say the least.

the old cyno animation was *much* better.

i prefer the old warp animation too.

Everybody that didn't do that already,

please support this CSM proposal for new cyno effect.

As someone who is both too lazy and doesn't give a **** what the effect is... No.

I don't generally agree with you, Siig. Actually, most of your posts (if I even bother to read them) usually confirm and extend my internet spaceships dislike of you.

But you are spot on with this one. It really is just crap.

Since Trinity, we've

Gained more detailed textures
Lost T2 details/animation
Lost shuttle animation
Gained cool jump/cloak animation
Lost the same jump/cloak animation
Lost cyno animation
Lost acc. gate "lightning" animation
Lost warp animation for the most part
Gained (just recently) turret/module effects

I thought Trinity was supposed to be an upgrade?

Bring back the T2 goodies and the old cyno, leave the bubble-pop effect for coverts.

It really does look boring.
The old effect was powerful, the new one is just "a drop in the water"... imagine 50 of those, would look like it was raining capitals :(
Even to think about it makes me want to pee.

I like all the new effects so far, however that Cynos is major ghetto. They should make the cynos jumpin look more like the size of a wormhole hehe.

seconding this.

Old cyno effect was like a lot of other people said a nice effect of epic proportions.

When I was a nublet and seeing a cap ship cyno in it was a awsome sight.

Now its like the universe is ****ting you out of nowhere

Posted - 2009.03.20 16:27:00 - [136]

and the devs continue to ignore us

this "New" cyno effect makes the 4chan favorite Shoop Da Woop Laser look like a god send.

Please make it better looking then what it is now, or the lack their of...

to page 1 we go in hopes of a dev response

that animation really put the fear of god in me.... its epic..
makes a capital jumping in feel like death is imminent.

Bring back the old cyno animation. The new one is just terrible.

Old/new cyno, who really cares ?

As long as the new one doesn't lag out the grid/system ...

Really, who zooms into close to ships in a fleet fight ? You all zoom out for less lag, same for the cyno jumping effect.

Again CCP demonstrates that their devs no longer really play nor are passionate about the game.

As posted by someone else, imagine just how underwhelming the QR trailer would have been with the new cyno effect.

Capitals entering the field used to be a blinding, vicious overkill of lightning and massive ebil ships roaring forth from the abyss. I love some of the new animations like giga pulse lasers an stuff, but the new effect is overused. Lensing has its place, like in wormholes and stuff, but I miss the violent and loud experience of jump drives and warping. It used to be pretty epic when I had to turn sound down or off because 100+ allies were all charging through a gate and I couldn't hear TS at all, or when a couple dozen capitals would blind everyone on the field prior to obliterating them. The lensing effect CCP has employed in-game is grossly overused and if it is indeed supposed to streamline graphics load somehow, give me a 'Classic Effects' box I can check so at least I can experience old warp/jump gfx as I had grown to love them.
