Look, while Dierdra's proposal for CCP to actually focus on the many issues plaguing the game is a step in the right direction, I think CCP needs to, for a single expansion, focus on this above all else. We need no flashy new features, no walking in stations, nothing like that, we need CCP to put a shine on this game. Implement features that have been promised, and make what's already there better.

For a short list of possible things that should be fixed:


I'd like to point out this is list is by no means complete, feel free to post additional topics that need fixing in your comments.

If your art team will get bored, have them make a Primae class salvager or tech one tier 3 BCs for each race or something.

I'll support this, but I'm under no illusions. CCP will not listen, and will continue to pump out half-finished, untested and badly designed "features", rather than ever focus on fixing existing content.

I'm under no illusions. CCP probably won't listen to something like this unless it becomes a mega-hyper threadnaut like Dierdra's proposal. Even so, it can't hurt to try, and if CCP does listen to their customers, having this idea out there is good.

I don't necessarily support all the points the OP brought up, but a development cycle with no new major content (even though I don't think Tyranis qualifies as major content anyway) is long overdue. Finish the last several expansions you've only half-developed and fix the major bugs those expansions have introduced. The game is getting worse, not better, and CCP needs to acknowledge that fact and devote their energy to reversing that trend.

I would like to support a development cycle on fixing past issues and more polish of the features already in the game.

/me seems to remember something about individual teams that work different sections, such as development, balancing, bug fixes etc.

Your idea would just have half of CCP sitting on their thumbs doing nothing. Not supported

A complete year spent 100% on finishing expansions and fixing bugs will save Eve from the fail cascade that is quickly approaching.

The 6 month expansion cycle is eating Eve alive with unfinished crap.

Apparently DUST isn't being developed by the satellite offices as promised.
I seem to remember being told that DUST development would not take a single resource away from Eve development.

Remove local from 0.0 while your at it so people can actually kill the bots that infest it.

I'm all for POS redesign. I don't even care if it's the focus of an expansion that actually revamps the game. Maybe they could overhaul the Corp UI and the wardec system too. That would make for a nice corporate system, and should also pull people out of NPC corps.

I've written quite a few proposals about POSes and the wardec system which would work well, but there's nothing more we can do until CCP figures it's time to act. As an ex-CSM candidate, please think of the majority of your players and fix these broken issues.

For anybody interested, my idea on POS redesign is listed here.

Even better, make the non-NPC 0.0 local channel delayed for everybody, but make an infrastructure hub upgrade which gives local to the controlling alliance. This won't help most macroers, but it will give the controlling alliance a great boost for defending their space, and encourage them to actually own space rather than just isolated, valued systems.

i don't really think this is going to happen, nor do i believe CCP will fix all the problems in a single expansion, the best we can do is to force CCP to do it slowly over time.

Since that is never going to happen, I'd still go with what Dierdra suggested: Increase the expansion interval to maybe 9 months and use the gained time to polish/fix stuff.

Supported.

If they're going to fix issues the 3d animators wont have much to do the next 6 months. Couldn't they fix this "variation" cr*p? Visual enhancement may be trivial, but it's still something worth working on.

TL;DR, UNIQUE HULLS FOR EVERYONE!

Are they truly so determined to run their flagship in to the ground?

That's kind of a shame.

Agreed, the odds and ends really need to be tidied up a bit. I'll throw black ops, faction armor plates/shield extenders and FW mechanics into the mix as well.

You forget that Incarna was promised... five? six? years ago. Players were talking about planetary flight when I first started playing... four years ago. These things were promised from CCP before a lot of the stuff that has come out lately.

If I had to guess, CCP has been tossing these recent expansions out in the manner they have been released because they are trying to give us something to keep us interested while they try to fulfill their promises of Incarna and Planetary Flight. In fact, most of these expansions seem to be the groundwork for towards both of those features.

Obviously, it would be nice if the expansions worked better. From the "we don't have any devs available to work on those" comment from Nathan(?), I get the impression that Incarna is not ahead of schedule. That worries me.
