Are the next expansions going to contain any actual game improvments?
the last few ones have been lacking on any serious content to pew pew.
How about some t2 canes and drakes? new ship roles? more diversity in tactics and combat?
more t3 classes? More area damage EW? More spaCE?

I think the carebears had enogh of a treat this last year. they ruled the belts, than the moons and now the planets? whts nexT? maybe if you let them mine a ship to death that would be better.

Incarna is up next, so I guess you're out of luck.

Uhh.. Things the pew pewers have gotten since launch that were not originally in the game

- Tech 2 ammo and modules
- T2 battleships
- t2 frigs
- covert ships
- more tier one battleships
- tech 3 ships
- carriers and supercarriers
- dreads
- titans
- pos warfare

???????

I think the pew pewers have gotten a lot of love.. now the carebears are getting theirs, it will come full circle again.. there is so much in this game are you telling me you have flown ever class of pewpew ship in every role? cuz i bet you have not.

it's also ying yang.. without the carebears, you got no ships to fly.. and without you guys popping ships the carebears have nothing to build

reality lies somewhere between the two :)

So you saying eve spent the first 5 years making this a pvp game, and than bam. it wants to make it into a sim city game? i dont get it.
wish market was simply AI. and ships cost the same all the time. there s nothing wrong with that, if i want to simulate a market Ill just play the real one. for the monetary system and eve economy has nothing to do with each other.
one is based on borrowing money from one bank to another and generating dept.

the other is based on, resources, isk sinks. and oh goody. selling gtcs.

all things considered, the industry side of EVE still requires some makeover.

from the pvp side, beyond balancing it's quite hard to shove in new roles and whatever.

atm there are at least 1, maybe 2 roles that haven't been touched, and one of them is actually carebearish (specialized gas harvesting ship). The more pvp-oriented role that hasn't been touched atm is mine layer ships, but that requires quite a bit of work.


this lack of roles means that atm there are no "viable" roles to be fulfilled by the Tech2 specialized ships, except the aforementioned, which means that T2 tier2 BC's and T2 tier3 battleships are still not feasible.

one could argue that the game lacks an Heavy assault battlecruiser and a Heavy assault battleship, but that would break the game in so many ways, I wouldn't even touch on that issue with a moon-sized pole.

No, I'm just saying they have decided to focus on developing the non-pvp aspect for a bit.. Most players of this game do not PVP after all. (just look at the population numbers).. Hopefully after incarna, we'll see some resources put back into the ship/pvp sode of things.. Also let's not forget that the in-station strategic map coming with incarna, is likely to be a huge PVPers tool.. Depending on how it works, it could be a game changer for fleets.

Also, PI, with Dust 514 coming, is arguably a 'PVP' feature, as it will enable 'chessboard' style PVP between eve players.. and D514 is a PVP game as well..

I think maybe CCP is trying to make their 'pvp' run a little deeper than gate camps and fleet blobs..

IMO, of course.

Funny, I thought the best Incursion drop was a low-sec only supercarrier BPC. You know, those ships that can't go into hi-sec ;)
