Looks to be nice work except for the hawk and t2 missiles still sucking.

I'm looking over the rockets feedback thread and everyone and their dog asking for more cpu for that hawk....and it gets a bonus to grid of course.

Any rationale there?

Is ccp going to be doing the changes for the black ops and the covert cyno as well as passed in the voting, on dec 14 or will that be done in jan?

the hidden release in december, is that concord is being disbanded and everywhere is nullsec :), carebears that want their system to become highsec need to donate trillions of isk to the faction for them to supply ships in that system, and the bill is 1 trillion isk a day.

however, this may not be the exact prize are all wanting to get, but it should be something epic like this :D

I plan to start a thread denouncing the fact that T2 ship drawbacks only apply to missile ships.

What would be the correct forum?


Thank you.

Dedicated salvage ship, Awesome. Now they just need to add a drone bay and some "Salvage Drones" to make this baby complete! Twisted Evil

Anyone know if we are going to keep the bonus from the learn skills we all ready have? I have all learn skills to level V so I do not want to see all my hard work, time and ISK go to waste. Not to mention the fact that I have shaved days/weeks off my training ques by having all my lean skills maxed out. So I will not be happy if we do not get compt for this change. Evil or Very Mad


FFS - How about reading the actual dev blog that explains EXACTLY what is happening...

You can train all leaning skills to 5, but can't spend 5 minutes to read up on the changes??? Shocked

I too would like an explanation of why Loan Contracts are being removed. I have used these extensively in the past as part of Eve University's Mining Ship Loaner Program.

Would CCP please comment in more detail on why these are being removed, and give full details on the forthcoming January "Contracts Refactoring?" Furthermore, will a reasonable replacement for these loan contracts be provided?
Callin

The reason for removing this contract type is that it was very seldom used and it was apparently a breeding ground for scamming. This is much the same reason as for removing the 'freeform' contract type in Apocrypha 1.3.

For the legitimate loan contracts, almost every single one operates on trust and does not require collateral. For those contracts, an alternative would be to loan the items and/or money using an item exchange contract and then receiving the items back with another such contract.

We realize this is inconvenient for people that are using these contracts for legitimate means but when we compare the amount of work these contract scams add to our customer support department to the value that this contract type provides we feel that their removal is justified.

We will provide more information about the upcoming contracts changes soonish. It should be on Sisi in a couple of weeks.

Unless improved loan contracts will definitely be reintroduced in the new system that's being planned, please don't do this.

That some people have used these contracts to scam is a very weak argument for removing them entirely; there's hardly a feature in the game that hasn't been used to con someone out of money in some way at some point in time, and as you point out, loan contracts are not used much so it can't be a widespread problem.

Unlike the old freeform contracts, the terms of loan contracts are stated quite clearly, so if someone falls for a scam based on a loan contract, it'll probably be their own fault and not an inherent flaw in the system.

Although they aren't currently used much, some niche but interesting non-scam stuff is possible with the loan contract mechanism that cannot be done with Item Exchange contracts and it would be a huge shame to remove them permanently. As someone who has used these contracts how they were intended in the past, I really urge you to reconsider this.


I don't think it is too late for them to reconsider, I think a great compromise will to allow Loan Contracts ONLY for Corp and Alliance Members. That way it will be a little harder for them poor fokes to be scammed and customer support tickets will go down. Win win for everyone.

Adding a Meta-level column is nice... Why not just a small number over the icon, say in the top right corner, similar to the tech-level...
Or something like:
"no icon" - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - II - faction icon - deadspace icon ... (Comes to mind, very good color coding in WoW)


or maybe something like:
"•Deadspace, faction, officer, and storyline items now have an overlay icon like the Tech II and III items" Very Happy
I am so absolutely in love with this part of the patch. You have no idea how tired my corpmates are about hearing me rant on and on about the lack of sorting options in cans and hangars. So the extra columns are a welcome and overdue solution (sorry to say, but thanks all the same!).

The faction, DS, officer and storyline icon overlays are also GREAT!

But, the reason I quoted this particular post was because the poster was asking for just a bit more from you - and I happen to completely agree. You missed the part about TECH 1 NAMED items - and being able to distinguish between them.

I just took more than a year off of EVE and I cannot distinguish most of mods by their name (within same-type groups) and often between different mods. Having that TECH 1 NAMED ITEM overlay would let me figure it out pretty quickly. I thought his idea was good: just for the named items, using their meta level as the overlay indicator.

I USED to know almost every mod in the game by name, but not now. Now... I don't remember if it is the F84 Local Damage System or the F85 Peripheral Damage System I that I want to use... or was it the Internal Force Field Array I or the Interior Force Field Array...???Twisted EvilRolling Eyes The inclusion of the NAMED META number as an overlay would solve this problem easily.

But seriously, just letting us sort by meta item will go a LONG way to helping this problem.

The only other problem I foresee is if you happen to group similar items together for logical reasons, and they happen to also use the same icon. If you look at the number of different mods that use the same icon as the Sensor Boosters and Signal Amplifiers you will know what I am talking about. I put these kinds of electronics mods together in a can for easy retrieval later. BUT... they all look the same, so simply sorting by meta will give me a hodgepodge of different mods types, all sorted by meta level.

(Before anyone offers me any opinions on my sorting methods, please ... don't. Ideally, we could look forward to having our items sorted in the same way as the market window is sorted - with the item grouping as it appears in the market window. Even better would be to have the display of items in our hangar allow us to collapse entire displays the way the market does... but... that is a hope for another awesome patch on another awesome day...)

One final wish for a bright and shiny future: MWDs finally got their own icon... ah... can we expect the same (and long overdue) love for other mods that share the same icon...? Please?

But for now. Thanks a ton! This is ABSOLUTELY a big step forward. Good job!

Well, I've started to cross train to minmatar right after i was "create a ship" contest winner, but I can't find any articles about it. So my question is if and when CCP is planning to make that awesome matar BS (Tornado) fly. I think lots of pilots will like to fly something new and shiny :)

Excellent upgrades. Thing I like most about CCP/Eve Staff is that they're human, they tell you when they're going to do something insane like remove learning skills rather than just take them away and let you deal with it like some other games I've played. Thankyou CCP/Eve Staff. :)

One question, will we be able to use the new character creation thingy on our older characters? I mean my toon is quite ugly and I'd like the chance to fix that.

Private contracts for corp-insured ships should not void insurance I believe so hopefully that isn't a problem.

Yes, you will be prompted to update your character portrait after the patch.

So let me get this straight, only the bigger corps can get the BPO's thus the Noctis ship?? People that want this ship, needs to be very rich or have quite a lot of SP so they can get it. Or is the market also selling the Noctis on a normal basis? Since my character doesn't have much SP and since I can't pay every 2 months, for various reasons, those people are in a disadvantage?

Awesome stuff. But what is the second Christmas surprise! I hate surprises. Can't stand it. Nooooooo. Need to know now Razz

But seriously good work. Some epic changes here.

And I have taken a screenshot of void before changes. Will compare after release. Hope it makes it worth it.

Hi,

so the patch tyrannis 1.3 will start in a few minutes here some points to discuss about during DT:

1) Guess when the Server will come up and how many "we found something" we will receive before the server-up

2) Does anybody believe that the new char-system or Incarna at all will ever released?

Sorry but im just monumentally BUMMED at the Sansha incursions not coming until.....January?!!

Baaically, to avoid misleading CCP SHOULD have called November's stuff exactly what it is: a patch (albeit with some appreciated changes incoming), not to call it "Incursion" cos it clearly flipping isnt!

Calling this a free expansion is balls; there's nothing new, its just a patch. Now we got to wait another 2 months for the actual new content?

Dominion = didnt deliver
Tyrannis = a balls carebear expansion in a game that's really all about the PvP

CCP are droppping the ball :(
But ill still pay my subs cos im a sucker for internet spaceships, but im still angry about it!

Good morning ... just for notice ... EVE is a gigantic Economy-Simulation where PVP is barely tolerated to create some consumption

Proof: Otherwise the CCP Chef-Number-Guy wouldnt had a heartattac after he has been told that the developer plan to reimburse all learning skills

According to the dev blog there will only be BPO's so everybody who only skilled in fighting will be doomed to life on the bread crumbs the prodder-guys giving to them ... so basically yes the first days or weeks only rich prodder- or research-guys can buy a Noctis

er...I have a char right now in one of the Ore systems ready to buy the bpo and undock a day or three later (depends on the level of camp going on). The corp he belongs to is 6 members. We all put up a bit of isk and I drew the straw to go fetch. Didn't need any skills other than covert ops/cloaking and knowing how to use the market.

To the poster above me as well...there will be gouging the first couple of days but by the end of the month, you'll see 'normal' pricing (like most ships, not much more over actual mineral costs, most ships are razor thin already on profit). If you have to have one that bad, you'll pay, but if you just wait a week or two, you'll get one at decent price.

The Dev Blog isn't saying anywhere about the ship itself, I mean they're talking about the skill + BPO, but no info about the ship itself how to obtain it, ok most people can think ohh only the BPO is available, so that's the only way to get it, but it would be nice that newbie that has well let's say 10m sp and less can also grab the noctis. Otherwise this is quite unfair for the majority of the players that can't pay for the game in consecutive months or even cough up the money to buy the BPO and/or get even to the 0.0 ORE Stations to get one.

Hidden away in a secluded sanctuary, the corrupted Dragon Aspect Deathwing has waited, recovering from the wounds of his last battle against Azeroth and biding his time until he can reforge the world in molten fire.

Soon, Deathwing the Destroyer will return to Azeroth, and his eruption from Deepholm will sunder the world, leaving a festering wound across the continents. As the Horde and Alliance race to the epicenter of the cataclysm, the kingdoms of Azeroth will witness seismic shifts in power, the kindling of a war of the elements, and the emergence of unlikely heroes who will rise up to protect their scarred and broken world from utter devastation.


When does this come out? Seems like the logical progression at this point.
