Simple question: If you were the sole person who chose all the changes in eve, what would the top 5 changes you'd make be and why?

Me:
-Remove the nano nerf
-Nerf Dramiel
-Increase level 3 and level 4 mission rewards by 100%
-Put bounties in level 5 missions
-Make nighthawk a t2 drake instead of t2 ferox.

I know removing the nano nerf and nerfing dramiel seem contradictory, but I would make it so its possible for the dramiel to be caught.

i know it would take a long time to reskin a drake model for a t2 variant but its worth it imo.

1) Add addressbook & bookmarks owned by corps & alliances, administered by roles
2) ANY of the very many suggested ideas to fix the bounty system.
3) Make it so that if someone is partially scrambled, but still manages to warp, they warp-to-15, not 0.
4) Move all l4s to 0.4 or lower
5) Cut all meta 0 loot & reduce reprocessing to 10% of current efficiency

1. Remove learning skills=P
2. remove sov mechanics
3. Change warp engines to a BSG style jump engine (that has a cooldown timer between jumps)
4. Make it possible to use these bsg style jump engines 'through' jump gates, allowing you to target locations in adjacent systems, bypassing gates (no more space chokepoints)
5. make it faster and easier to probe people down, who cant just warp off if they've just jumped into a system because they are on cooldown.
6. Add a more meaningful POS system where warfare is based more on controlling valuable locations within a system than just fighting over a bunch of empty space with some stuff inside of it.

1. Introduce the Millenium Falcon
2. Bring in that /feed me command they use in WoW to order a pizza irl. But it would be for ordering Beer/Wine instead.
3. Remove the god awfull camo paint job from the navy domi/mega.
4. Ensure that bar fights and dirty dancing make it into walking in stations.
5. Give myself lots of cool stuff and laugh at poor people.

How does one become partially scrambled? Is that like being sort of pregnant?

I would nerf all the things that negatively affect my playstyle and boost all the things that benefit my playstyle, regardless of the reasons of why they're there and the people it affects.

That said:
- more anti-blob features on smaller ships (chain overload on remote reppers, AOE affects, etc.)
- decrease all ship hp values by 75%
- make manufacturing have an attribute called 'quality' so that goods of the same type can have different stats (and thus able to brand name your goods)
- reduce the number of ships in level 4 missions by 75%, but increase each ship's bounty and combat capability accordingly
- enable guerilla tactics to take out sov (like planting bombs inside jettisoned cargo)

0. FIX CONTRACTING TO ALLOW CONTRACTING DAMAGED ITEMS LIKE FACTION/T2 CRYSTALS.http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=1277363

1. Hire a really awesome UI design expert and commit time to fixing the UI in the next expansion. Focus especially on industry and market UIs (but please don't neglect my kill people UIs!)
2. Fully integrate Eve with existing technologies - chat channels (like corp/alliance/publics/etc) would all operate from a CCP IRC server and evemail (incl corp/alliance/etc) would all operate from a CCP email server. It would be disconnected from external email - though perhaps you might elect to get your evemail forwarded to your personal email account. Finish Eve-Gate, because it sounds like an awesome idea. The intention here is to facilitate communication with people that are not currently logged into Eve.
3. Remove the ship tier system entirely - it unnecessarily gimps ships without a good reason. This is especially frustrating when the lower tier ships have roles that aren't replicated at a higher tier.
4. Rework mining and industry such that it wasn't such a drag to work with. This is an idea that I liked, but I'm open to many ideas: http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=1274374
5. Make faction war have real benefits instead of only drawbacks. Also, missioning for an empire should mean that you have declared your support for that empire - and you are now a viable militia target.

Other things I'd like to see:
- Rebalance rigs such that their penalties are related to their bonus - like hybrid rigs might become +dmg/-rof or +optimal/-falloff instead of +dmg/+pg usage and +optimal/+pg usage. This would make the rig skills much more important than they are now.
- Move towards a system where there are T1/T2/T3 subsystems and that each Tech level of ship can use subsystems from all classes its tech level and below. I think it'd be ideal if the ship hulls maintained some base features that they currently have.
- Make black ops not so short ranged (jump/bridge range) or not so crappy at actual combat.
- Consider making all ships have jump drives (or a purchasable module?) that can be operated without a cyno on the other end. You end up somewhere random in the target system. Stargates still exist and are free.
- Make a class of freighters that can operate as strong battleships - but lack maneuverability etc of a BS. They're still freighters (with smallish cargo holds), but have some teeth. Idealy, they might have the same ship class name and appearance as T1/T2 freighters.

The top 6 are definitely more pressing than the others.

1)replace local with a proper intel system
2)add more combat agents for the missionbears but make quality and other rewards depend on relative use
3)add more anti-blob weapons and tactics; push for diversified fleet setups and tactics over longrange fleetBS and calling primaries
4)do something with lowsec. pseudo-sov to encourage longterm control or similar
5)playermade UI modifications, all mods are public and hosted/verified by CCP

All of which are either impossible pipedreams or would utterly destroy eve via mass exodus and numerous NGE references

Caught one tonight - suspect pilot was half asleep or stoned though.

That said, I liked it when nano's were in game - I had my fair share of both sides of the nano-stick but, on balance, I preferred the frenzied high-speed gameplay it could offer - eve seems like slow-mo now in comparison. (but then, I was one of the lucky buggers that could afford pollies).

I'd also roll back to just pre-dominion, mainly because fleet fights were so sorted then - I dunno what they did, but they had lag sorted and since Dominion we've gone backwards in that regard.

The main thing I'd change is I'd un-nerf the probing system - before the patch where current probing system was implemented I could catch isk-farmers, now I can't because the probing system of physically manouevring the probes is too clunky - moving probes in three-dimensional planes using a two-dimensional interface is really not working that well tbh.

1) I would remove the 3d models and replace them with MS paint art limiting design time to 20 seconds each ship.
2) all ships would shoot gumballs.
3) security status of empire space would be set to random. Imagine Jita being a 1.0 then a .4 the next day. Also imagine the emo tears when someone with low security status undocks in a pimp ship from their home station only to find concord waiting.
4) I would have an I win button.
5) you wouldn't.

1) The caldari rookie ship would be able to mount missile launchers
2) no learning skills from day 1 => no time wasting
3) no t2 BPO lottery => no forum whining
4) sov wouldn't cost money, it would require residents to shoot enough pirates to keep them retaking the system
5) alliance logos would get cleared quickly
6) the interbus would have stations and an LP store

- Remove warp to zero in 0.0
- Allow warp to 15 in 0.0 where sov is held by non-NPC Corp/Alliance
- Allow warp to 5 in 0.4 thru 0.1
- Allow warp to zero in empire
- Remove bookmarks
- Remove meta 2 and 3 items
- Make it cost a fee weekly for having anyone blue outside of your alliance.
- Make alliances with over 1000 people in it a Mega-Corp which pays different tariffs
- Make 'aiding and abetting / harboring' people agressed transfer the aggression to you (no docking / n00b alt remote boosting without consequence).
- 100% of stations are kick out
- removal of local is a SOV upgrade in 0.0 for entities that hold space (Sure, you want no local, you pay to have that veil) only. See how many people 'actually' want this rather than want to just have it work in their favor during roams.
- Have some feedback that your client received the input from the mouse so I don't have to click like a crazy cat women to get my ship to move.
- 1/2 or 1/4 hit points on all ships/structures, do NOT nerf the guns/missiles. This is the biggest reason WHY you need to bring 1000 people into a system to get something done.

Too many other ideas, but all them based on not going backwards without there being a counter weight.

If I could change one thing about eve, I'd just make all the whiners bunch up in a blob flying shuttles so I could smartbomb them once and have a laugh. Just the once.

No, you know what, if I could change one thing about eve, I'd bring back Ctrl + F9 removes UI and brackets then right click -> "Reset camera" shows brackets but not UI. It was so freaking useful for filming. Crying or Very sad
