Everyone told me to shut up, that I was whining, when I raised the alarm months ago. 4 words: I told you so. You weren't listening my fellow gamers, nor were you CCP. CCP, You just told a bunch of your paying clients to go jump off a cliff. Fellow gamers, you thought incarna would break only on old crappy computers. Guess what...incarna sucks on your new shiny ones too. Doom 3 came out in 2004 and is superior in every way to Incarna in 2011 -- and still overheats your GPU/CPU even though you have the shiniest liquid cooled systems. CCP hates you...it's just that simple.


You are a minority, CCP themselves said in april less then 3%. Since many people have upgraded or quit, you are among the less then 1% now.

May be among the 1% but the number of people who do not give input and simply think to themselves "Can't play eve till i get a new Vid card or Laptop" are much greater than 1%. Not to mention if you search the other threads the Incarna update has fried several PC's and is virtually wreaking havoc on many users PC's due to what can only be described as bad coding. (search other threads, there here, not taking the time to link them).

Personaly I would like to know how CCP plans on addressing those players who just started or recently purchased EVE on CD only to find out that the requirements they were given @ purchase time = SORRY WE SOLD YOU A PACKAGE THAT YOU CANNOT PLAY.

As per other threads (leaked CCP Document) one has to wonder what is going through the minds of CCP. No TRUE offical statement has been given on any of the main issue's. Just the normal "Sorry you were told, nothing is wrong, thats just the way it is" comments.

I am one of the 9,000+ users who cannot play, YES it sucks. But then playing on an old laptop sucks too :p (Ya I could go out and buy a PC for under $1k, but I would rather have a place to live, food on my plate and clothing for my family @ the moment.)

For those people that keep tellin people how cheap a PC is that can play eve all I have to say to you is "F*ck Off". It's nice to be well off and have the things you wan't. But most of us don't have a bank account that we can just dip into for a PC to play eve, nor have we purchased a good PC in years. Yes there cheap, but RL **** comes before this game.

No amount of *****ing is going to get CCP to release a client for us who currently cannot support sm3, This is a money maker for them. More sold Plex's for there special items, New Advertisement with the addition of the WALKING AROUND IN A STATION will bring in more new players that are used to using RL money to buy items.

To those in PB. Soon enough I will be back, so will alot of Vet players that currently can't play. Enjoy your time with us not in game cuz when the day comes that we can log back in were gonna be ****ed and we'll be looking for you :)

If only you were banning 9000 bot accounts rather than 9000 genuine accounts I wouldn't have to hold you in massive contempt.


there was a scientific study done where they would take people who made fun of or hated on other people for doing things they didnt do....

the scientist then taught them how to do it whether they said they knew how or not... and over 90% started doing it from then on...

what this means is dont be mad you dont know how to use technology to your advantage...

BUT!!! at the same time i agree... botters and NeX must go

Assuming you're not trolling, you likely need to upgrade your video card.

ok if the SM3 thing is a problem for people with older computers i say stop playing eve for about 5 months and take the extra $15 a month and save it for a viedo card that can run it and if you problem isnt a desktop then take a year off and save and in 12 months youll have enough to buy an old laptop that supports sm3 and you can run the game. hell if someone wants to buy a toshiba satellite that will run eve on low ill sell mine

My feelings on this? Well I am a BROKE college student, and now my MMO (EVE) requires Shader Model 3, and I have a laptop with on-board graphics that don't support that.

So 4 YEARS of eve is down the tubes indefinitely.

Evil or Very MadI can hardly type I am so angry and upset at this.Evil or Very MadSo....&#$% it. You forced many loyal players into retirement.

As much as I hate to say it.......back to WoW I guess.

I'm out. Thanks a lot CCP.


P.S. Why couldn't you make it an option? I don't care about captains quarters. I just want to be able to play again. Let me disable it and get back into the game......


Can i have your stuff?

Eve and DX11 Fu** yeah!!Cool

Well, eve was already becoming a pain in the ass,
probably better that you guys save me some money!

I am buying a new computer soon, but I'll try and avoid getting back on eve.. hopefully the fewmonth break will get me out of a bad habit.

If small gang PVP ever comes back into fashion somebody let me know.. I wont be holding my breath, but I can dream.

This means I probably wont be getting into Dust either anymore.. starts to look like just another shooter if you're not involved with eve as well.


You are a moron. Truly.
Take your ass to Gusandal plenty of small scale pvp out there
