Excellent.

edit: That's a lot of hopefully's. Rolling Eyes

Don't want to take this in a negative direction though, the ideas seem pretty sound!

Good luck CCP, code safe.

Hurray.

More PVE content.

Sometimes I do wonder who whispers into which ear.


Just out of curiosity, you are absolutely sure that this will be a complete feature set, and not a half enabled delivery that has to be iterated upon?

Sounds like an attempt to sell co op gameplay for pve. Except that all you need to do is watch where people come together, and then go in with overkill. Or are those earlier comments of hard caps on participation numbers still valid?

In before Chribba (alway's wanted to say that)

And I must say: Sleeper AI for new massive PVE content <3

I really really really like what is being described in the devblog and if it works like the picture you created about it in my mind I will love you guy's forever (I already love you forever since the introduction of the Tengu but that is another matter)

Can we also get some devblog with pictures of shiny Sansha Mothership pls?

That's the kind of positive attitude I like to see.

Hopefully "sleeper AI" will be improved for this.

To be blunt "sleeper AI" at present is extremely predictable. What makes sleepers challenging isn't their tactics, except for their propensity for targeting drones which is just annoying, but their sheer dps coupled with very high ehp and RR.

Maybe if the new NPC's meaningfully use ewar and nueting that will make these fights challenging and not just exercises in who can build the best RR gang.

There is no hard cap as such. The reward system is designed to discourage overkill, so while you can certainly dump 500 people into an event, you won't really gain anything from it.

If you complete enough of those objectives and contribute positively over a period of time, you may even get a bonus reward for being a good soldier. Think of it as a "service guarantees citizenship" thing. We want to make sure that there is an incentive to be the number one contributor, so hopefully people are motivated to put in an effort. We'll make sure everyone knows who the top dogs are in all of this, so you can show everyone your veritable e-member.


So ... killboards for PVP, but now also an e-peen board for PVE?

I saw this via facebook: glad to see the carebears are getting some love for a change :P

I've often heard though that you really couldn't field logistics vs sleepers (BS sized anyways) because the AI would FF them (which is good) at ludicrous ranges (which is bad). Is this the case? If so, how will this new content differ to entice good fleet mixtures instead of blobs of remote repair battleships?

PLEEEEEASE do not add the code that makes them shred my drones AS SOON AS I ATTACK SOMETHING!!

I would love it if they IGNORED drones. Those are the things that save your sorry butt when you get warp scrambled and you are seconds away from becoming one with your own wreck fields.

Have a heart CCP, THINK OF THE DRONES!!!! </3

Is shooting at these NPCs going to give a sec status gain?

Will players be able to aid the NPCs directly?

Not really a PVE fan but am lookin forward to the potential collateral profit opportunities the incursion events might provide.
