Hello CCP Big Dumb Object dude.

Your blog was a total pain in the ass to read due to the all too liberal sprinkling of sugar puffs. Now, don't get me wrong, sugar puffs are fine (in moderation) and I'm sure you'd like to please all the kiddies (who would squeal in delight when they get them).

In short, when/if you do your next blog, please consider us folks who would like a concise, clear and to-the-point blogs that lists the pertaining changes without having to go through a gauntlet of fluffy wall-o-text.

Write less text on blogs and more lag-fixing code.


yeah, why are the content devs telling us stuff about content instead of fixing lag

Never fails to amaze me... Devs don't communicate with us and everyone gets mad. Devs communicate with us and they are wasting their time instead of working on EVE. Devs don't give enough content. Devs post a lot but no substance. Nice, but we don't want this, we want that. This isn't our pet peeve so, awesome or not, we don't care. There aren't any pretty pictures. There are no graphs or charts. When there are, stop it and get back to the lag issue. Devs are too dry. Devs are too witty. We want more detail no matter how much detail there is even in the early stages of the matter. As I read the posts, the first reaction is amazement, then a dumbfounded look, and finally laughing and shaking my head. I would never want to be a dev. EVER. It's a mostly thankless, no-win job when it comes to the vocal community.

That said, I thoroughly enjoyed this blog. Quite entertaining and enough content to believe that there is some good stuff coming down the star lanes. BUT I do have a few questions...
  1. Why not divide them a bit better as an earlier post suggested with some rare higher levels occasionally popping up in hi- & losec just to make it interesting and allow for the rare chance of some better loot in those areas?

  2. Why is this starting in 0.0 instead of losec as is the general consensus? Losec definitely needs the love.

  3. With the DED coming back into focus, could we please get the DED Social skill inserted too, tying into DED missions leading to some of these DED sites?

^^Thanks, Miro, however, angels, well, most factions seem to have 1/10, its just 2/10 up that goes a bit squiff.^^

So, wacky and zany aside, (teehee)
low and nullsec are getting fixed ded, what about people who stick to mid and highsec? will we get sansha's ded sites above 1?
or, for that matter, the other missing ones? or is that all just for low and nulsec?

With each new site, we are introducing into the game this faction-themed loot that the gods always intended to be present, but for the failings of man. That's right, this thing just went biblical.

That's three great flavors for one low price. New NPCs, new world building, new loot, all coming at you in our next release.




Awesome writing, Awesome info, highly appreciated!

we need more of this, whatever it is.

I also highly recommend we actually do try to jump stone mountain in the way proposed by CCP Big Dumb Object. Next EVE TV commercial break of fanfest!

A gargantuan wall of text aside, I don't know how to think about this blog.

You may think of it as a sign that CCP will be dealing with loose ends and unfinished stuff after all. This is great and awesome. Real awesome, not current CCP's "awesome".

But you may see it as a length of an iteration cycle being about 4 years. Now this would be a CCP brand "awesome".

Time will tell...

This.

Informative Dev blogs are good.

It is kind of spoilt when they are written like a teenager trying to sound cool. There is a difference between creative writing and being an idiot...

Now, where is Cosmos on the fix list?

They think they are teenagers which does not exclude some of them being idiots too...

Damn, that writing causes brain hemorrhage and stuff...

So the TL;DR is:
- introduction of the missing DED sites between levels 6-10
- new faction (probably rather 'complex') items from those new sites
Yes. If your goals were to communicate directly and succinctly, you could say that.
And what were your goals, to communicate like an easily excitable 11 year old?

Nice stuff.

As a lowsec missioner, I'm interested. I just recently finished all the cosmos missions (well, amarr and caldari) and I'd like to know: what are the new plexes being done in the first iteration?

Recommend you liberally sprinkle your next blog with baby-talk to further annoy the whiners. (Just collect a baby, doesn't matter how, and read the blog to it as you're typing - the inanity will come naturally)

Also, looks okay to me. However, please revise the spawn mechanics of plexes especially after dt when the systems load. When I log in, all plexes have already been run..


I Second this! No content timers should be tied to any fixed point in the day. It just helps the bots.

On distribution: We are not changing the current distribution mechanics for DED complexes. Wherever you find a given level of DED complex currently, you can expect to find it still after this update.

In the case of the Entrapment Array, the total number of sites won't change at all. What you will see is a more reliable change in sites as you upgrade the array. So if you're hanging out in Guristas space, you'll see a new site for all five upgrades of the Entrapment Array.

For exploration, new pirate complexes will be added to the appropriate space. For example, Blood Raiders didn't have many DED complexes. That meant Delve had fewer total DED sites than Curse. Now the two will have an equivalent number of sites. This will raise the total number of DED complexes available at any given time.

While it's very nice that you're fixing this, could the writing style of future blogs be less I-want-to-tear-my-eyes-out-after-reading-this please?

Does not seem so from the dev blog.

All I see is more shiny they are pulling out, aka polluting the game with more faction crap.
