Dear Own alliance terribad,
kthnkx your terrible.
Although my compadre's like to gatecamp, I usually go around in frigates looking for honor bushido duels.
Also, seeing as though you know we gatecamp alot, your probably on a couple mails on our board. So you mad?
Being able to freeze the overview gives the player the ability to focus on a target he or she (read he) is attempting to find. Be this on a gatecamp, be this your in a logistic cruiser or triage carrier and trying to find who the hell just broadcast for armor/shield/cap/hull. The ability also allows you to focus on a destination, like attempting to warp to a planet when eveuni, minmatar fw, gaylente fw, amarr fw, any sort of 0.0 alliance (like your terrible alliance) blobs you and your waiting to warp out your pod.
Btw, kthnkx.

Paging Tailor swift for snipe.

Plz fix, this is ruining gate-based or any large scale PVP.

Gate camping is not PVP

Also the game works better like this. Not supported.

your an idiot

Eve should be hard, I hear.

Yes, but does that mean it is supposed to be a twitching game, where you have to have very very fast eye to hand coordination, or a game where you're supposed to use your brains?

Focusing on the overview trying to catch the split second where the target stays at a certain location isn't what I'd expect from a game like Eve when told it's "hard".
That's something I'd more expect from a shooter.

By your logic, shouldn't guns also not auto-target but be manually controlled?

I think th eissue isnt with gatecamps or small fights, teh real problem is when you have 176 targets and your trying to find KHNTDeathlord89 and he keeps jiggling up and down the target list due to warpoffs, warpins, distance changes or deaths...

KHNTDeathlord89 is a fictional character and in no way represents or is an imitation of any person living or dead, andy resemblance to a person living or dead is entirely accidental. No KHNTDeathlord89s were hurt making this infomercial.

1/10 for receiving some responses.

Hopefully this is a bug and will be patched quickly.

Yeah this needs to be fixed, it obviously is one of the many glitches that were introduced with the new patch, including overview and local standings issues, neutral coloring on overview, the toggle special overview bracket hotkey not working, ect.

Anyone who doesn't think this feature shouldn't be brought back obviously doesn't know anything about pvp and probably has a real ****ty pvp record. Prove me wrong

That would mean this is not a works as intended feature, similar to capital ships jumping to covert cyno's or the ninja buff to incoming hulkageddon.

I guess this was part of the new shortcut changes, possibly there's a technical reason it had to happen, but I'd certainly support CCP throwing some Dev time into getting the Overview sorting freeze back

Response from a filed bug report:

"We are already aware of this problem, and have added your bugreport to the existing issue in our defect tracking system."

There is hope!

Yeah.. sorry, but I'm not to fond of your lingo either; sounds like nonsense to me, and I feel it should be removed from the game.
k thanks

One letter.. wth? Does that make you cool or something? Stop it!

Anyway, back on topic.. I never really used overview freeze, and I know they keep bobbing about; but its not really that big of a deal, in my opinion. How did you freeze it anyway? I just have my overview set up; so I don't really have to worry about it most of the time. I don't blob warfare though either; so, it probably wouldn't concern me.

Somebody seems to think its a glitch though; so, maybe you'll get it back, when they fix the rest of the graphical glitches.

Speaking of which.. not a graphical glitch; but anybody else had all their places folders dumped? I've still got to go back and fix them; so everything is organized as it should be. Hopefully thats still possible; didn't really check, just closed it in annoyance.

Also, where did the damn portrait option go?

FFS. The scrollable windows simply need to stop jumping to the top or bottom every time something changes. If I have it sorted by ship type and am locking vagabonds, please don't pop me to the top of the overview because someone showed up or died. The same for fleet. If I'm looking at wing 3, don't pop me up to the top because someone dropped or joined fleet.

When I'm ratting and shooting BS, please don't scroll off them because 20 frigates just spawned in. That is highly annoying. I don't want to have to have a tab for every single possible thing I want to shoot at any given time. I'd end up with tabs across my entire screen.

Let me pin the overview to a certain thing.

fast twitch speed, how good your vision quality, and relative processing speed of computers should be a small aspect in combat advantage . (outliers on the poor side of a standard deviation or too can be discounted somewhat )

_thinking_ and responding relatively quickly is a fine metric

Its one thing for a quicker person to get the advantage to the degree they're faster.. its another thing where thats accentuated to the point where a split second speed difference or aging eyes results in many more seconds delay because of needing mutiple attempts
