From the Facebook thread

On behalf of Tom Sullivan: Why do we not have mobile eve gate? (a mobile version, with CSS styled for mobile screen resolutions; or an app. But a simple CSS mod would work so we on iPhones or droids don't have to pinch and zoom all the time.)

I'd like to ask about the economic reports please. I notice that they always state that they use a Laspeyres index, which I've read exaggerates inflation. I was wondering why you decided to use this index? Do you consider the inflationary exaggeration a benefit (perhaps making the economy look more interesting) or merely a side effect? Is there a reason not to use a Fisher index to try to counter that effect? Do you use it simply as you feel the moving baseline from indexing against the last period is a good thing in terms of keeping it current for the playing population?

I'd love to hear a response as I've been learning some basic economics and it's pretty cool seeing how it is applied in Eve, so I hope you can aid my learning a little by elaborating on why you chose this index which I'm intrigued about.

1. Will you please put the Ethnic Relations skill in a blender, then burn the resulting pulp, then spread those ashes around the vastness of space?

2. Will you please allow us to completely delete injected skills from our head, perhaps for a fee of ~100 ISK per SP deleted?
--- This includes the skill being completely deleted, not still in your head with 0 SP.
--- Oh look, an excellent ISK sink that will make a majority of the playerbase happy.

3. Taking it one step further, would it be reasonable that when deleting a skill you'll receive a random amount of SP (let's say between... 5-25% of the total being erased...) back to spend where you like?

Sov warfare is currently haves vs. have-nots, in the sense that if you can field Supercarriers, reinforcing/destroying sov infrastructure is dramatically faster (minutes instead of hours) than doing it with a sub-cap fleet.

Is this the degree of difference intended with Supercaps? Is there supposed to be a counter to supercap fleets outside of "another, larger supercap fleet"?

IMHO the capital advantage should be that they are tougher to stop (and they are), and to have a different deployment strategy (jumps vs. gates) not necessarily having so much more damage output as well.

Here's my questions:

1) When will item stacking in hangers be fixed/reverted back to the old way? Right now it is a pain to sort loot as the stacks fly all over the place instead of staying where the original stack is. For some reason some of the stacks move to the new single item dropped in the hanger, making it much harder to sort new items without a stack from items with a stack.

2) When will war-deccing become more expensive? Right now it is so cheap that it is used for griefing rather than meaningful war in many cases.

3) When will afk-cloakers be dealt with, as it is also griefing in my eyes? E.g. Put a timer on how long a ship can remain cloaked if not near a station or belt or such

4) When will it become impossible for war targets to use non-affiliated alts to scout out their war targets via standing setting, rendering the poor targets defenseless unless doing the same non-productive or intended activity?

5) When will other than combat sites (anomalies) be able to be found with the onboard scanner? i.e. finding small hidden asteroid belts or hacking sites for the lazy/inept non-probing people?

6) Will anything be done to control the ever increasing prices on GTC's at the timecode forum (I suspect foul play) and the side-effect this has on PLEX prices? Not exactly friendly to new players below 1 year or casual players.

7) What will happen exactly to agents, agent divisions and mission related skills? PLease be very specific and please do not destroy a very good system

I hope to see some answers Smile

Will we see Tech 3 Frigates?

Will we be able to join pirate factions again? Lots of Sansha supporters want this...

How soon can we expect Casino/Gambling aspect of in-station enviroments? First release? Later additions?

What happened to contest ships - any ETA on when you guys will add the two winning ships?

Why does EVE Gate (or future mobile EVE gate) not have in-game chat, but voice is there???

Why is the sky blue?

What are the plans to redress the current supercarrier overuse due to their making of all other shipclasses most notably dreadnaughts obsolete?

Klingon Admiral

Can you give any rough ETA for the Tornado? Like summer 2011 or winter 11/12?
Will the other races recieve a counterpart to the Tornado?

Any plans of rebalancing battlecruisers? (some [Drake/Cane] are ridicolously powerful, others not quite so...]

Are you planning to rework/rebalance dreadnoughts?

Will armortanks/shieldtanks recieve their own crystal/slave set respectively?

1- Heat mechanics (overloading) is one of the mechanics that is in almost all ships, Are there any plans on making this feature more obvious among the new players,
perhaps making it more flashing and cool looking with additional hit interface or something :P

2- Captains quarters has been getting a lot of advertisement on youtube and so-on, Was wondering if considering the state of CQ on duality, will the entire WIS aspect be presented on summer expansion release, or will this be in several parts extending till half of second expansion release ?

3- When can we see more content about WIS shared on duality or singularity ?

Why don't you receive a sec status increase for killing real player pirates? I'm sure Concord would be more concerned with huge RR blob gatecamps than some crappy ships in a belt :P. It would provide a more natural, player-driven flow of sec change for people that kill the pies and make space safer!

(if it's a matter of people taking advantage of the system by killing alts repeatedly, you could protect against it by only awarding sec once every 24+ hours for killing a particular character... the sec should be based on how low the pie's sec is)

Can we have our cake and eat it too?!

We want unlimited local fittings and server side fittings (limited if necessary)!

Unlimited Local Fittings!


We've heard you're planning on the multi-player interaction within Captain's Quarters to come shortly after Captain's Quarters, do you think it will come within months afterwards or with the following seasonal expansion?


Can you give us a treat as to what Space-side expansions will come with the next expansion besides Captain's Quarters? We've heard there will be some goodies, but no clue really yet.


When will we see the first Epic Missions using the Sansha/Sleeper AI to start to bridge the gap for using these AI's for regular missions? And when can we see the new missions start to use the new mission infrastructure so we can expect to see more interesting/involved/creative missions rather than just the same missions from the last 6-8 years?

Thanks for your time, awesome Idea you have here.

1) is there a way to actually see the actual damage mod. on your drones in game. I.I not using EFT , or having to hsoot somebody to see the dmg?

2) when a ship has bonus to dmg and hp for drones (all the drone ships in EVE) does this bonus apply to the ewar drones too? (does the ewar drones also recieve 50% bonus to dmg at level V , on a drone ship?)

3) why does drones appear as neutrals , even though they are owned by an ally? (like fleet memebers or militia , or even corp)

Are there any plans to give missile launchers their own models and placements on ship models, as well as removing the big blob of missiles coming out of the center of your ship?
Additionally, will missiles themselves and their missile trails be given an update? Currently you only see a tiny blocky bit for the missile and a huge bland white light for the exhaust, maybe a slightly more detailed missile model and more inline exhaust FX would be nice?

I know several friends who play eve, who also serve in the military. My question to you is, due to several month long deployments, they come back behind in skills, would there ever be a way to contact a gm before a several month deployment, and create a skill queue to train during said deployment, due to an obvious lack of internet connection. (most army internet connections have a bandwidth cap that wont even allow eve to load fully) I feel that if the account is active, and paid for, there should be a way to still allow one's character to train skills while fighting real battles.

1. Whats the future of T3?

2. Where is our much talked about 5th subsystem?

3. ETA on T3 balance? Some subsystems are just terrible.

4. Are there any planned improvements to W-space, its population seems to have dropped off significantly lately.

Does CCP still stress quantity over quality?
Does CCP still think that new shiny stuff is more important than refining core gameplay?

From the Facebook thread.

Double question on behalf of Justin Michael جویا مردوشی: Is it possible that you all could review gallente ships? In many instances, it seems Gallente vessels come up short compared to it's sister or enemy counter-parts. For example, the thorax and brutix don't have good buffers compared to the amarr nor are they fast by any means.

On another note, will Gallente pilots be able to change out ammo types in the future?

Will the petition system ever be retooled to allow GMs to convert active petitions into bug reports for submission to the bug hunter department by the GM on the behalf of the player?

'Hello CCP, I have this issue.... GM's reply: That looks like a bug. File a bug report at this website and include XYZ.'

Please tell me that the right hand will 'accept' the work of the left hand at CCP soon?

While I realize the additional detail of a bug report is important, the players not taking the time and effort to fill out the specialized bug report forms will hamper all bug hunting if the department is not aware of an issue, or how widespread the problem may be. Most players do not take the time to fill out the bug forms. Even if there are a few dedicated bug hunters out there, the ratio of submitters to non-submitters is very low.
Allowing the GMs to submit bug reports on behalf of the players would increase the bug hunting info coming in to the department.

Thank you for opening this thread.
