Q: Any news about game translation in french?
Most of my friends don't even try the game because of the language barrier(then it is hard to sell the game)

Q: Any news about the treaties feature?
sounded pretty cool when presented at fanfest 2009 :)

Q: No survey sent to fanfest 2011 participants?
I would love to provide comments about it

Q: why such a focus on visual improvements of eve? Do you think the beauty of the current game is a barrier to new players?
Turrets, nebulas, UI, big portraits... sound like a nice to have, not a must to have, right?

Q: When working on your war on lag, have you ever considered to switch to an instance system for PVP?
Like STO, 30 people fighting for one planet lol
I am sure you guys had meetings on that: pros and cons Wink

Q: are you allowed to drink beer at work?

Q: What is next chrismass present?
after removing training skills, could you make a skill remap feature? I want to get rid of my missiles skills! I would pay for that!

Q: Any chance to get one day BS tech 2 based on Tier 3 BS models?
I want my Rokh made by Ishukone lol

Q: How many questions was i alload to ask BTW?

Q: Any plan to help us getting rid of cloacking cowards?
Sick of them: pain in the ^$* to get these cloacked bombers.

Q: What are your sales expectations for Dust?
This game is gonna come on a tough market, in a soon old platform, with a never seen approach... i hope you guys don't expect a Killzone 2 like commercial performance :)

Q: I tried the buddy programm with a WOW player (lol). He did the Trial + one month game, then he quited the game, saying "there is nothing to do".
What would you answer to him?
PS: he tried the same day STO and Eve, the character creation of STO just made him laugh.

Q: Any link between the increased time needed to the eve client to launch the game and a tracking of botters? "identifying" >> sure!

Q: How do you plan next extention trailer so far? again a mix of space and incarna? Be carreful with expectation management...

Q: Any video games event in France you would participate?

Q: Do you plan to include captain quarter 's reward in special mission, epic arc ect?
rewards like painting , furnitures ect... Think about how you could custom your ship in SWG by example :)

Pirate Ship Logs were a cool bit of in game fluff. Do you ever see their return to the game, perhaps as a way to add an expedition to a pirate site into your journal?

Have you ever considered Charlie Sheen for a public relations position?

Are you people still harassing Tuxford about the Tranquility incident? Shame on you, give Tuxford a break already! Everyone goofs up once in a while.

I have seen talk to far about features being planned for 2013, 2014... ...But you know what? We want those cool features and we want them now (and a pony). Are there any plans at CCP to hire more developers so that we can get the cool stuff and bug fixes sooner?

Eve is an advanced world with cool cloning and other advanced biological technology. Why can't I have feathers? Why can't my market alt have her brain transplanted into a Slaver Hound?

Speaking of Slaver Hounds, will they make an appearance with Incarna? What about other fauna of the Eve universe?

And speaking of Incarna, where's my wedding gown, fishnet stockings, and cossack hat? The art team did a truly amazing job with the tattoos and I'm eager to see an expanded clothing selection as well.

Q: Does CCP truly intend to answer every question (w/in their guidelines) in this thread? If yes, then what happens if there are more questions to answer than time / personnel allow once 05.13.11/16:01 UTC rolls around?

Q: Why did CCP set a hard limit of 50 ship fittings that can be saved by a pilot? More info / links here. The fittings change was advertised in such a way that individual pilots would have spill-over fittings saved to a local XML file. No worky.

Q: Why does CCP almost always remove or diminish (aka, nerf) the efficacy / value of features when attempting to balance the game as this typically enrages large blocks of players and leaves others asking the valid question of "why the **** did I just spend xxx days training for that ship / weapon / capability?"

Q: Why does CCP not look at providing more creative means and counters for elements of the game that are perceived to be over-powered? Or promote creative solutions by the players themselves?

So much of the whining about a particular OP'd ship / weapon system / capability can be mitigated with creative thinking about counters that CCP's "let's cater to the squeaky wheel again' game design methods appear lazy and without much thought.

Posted - 2011.05.10 17:15:00 - [785]

Are you planning on doing anything more with wormholes? Giving us specific anchorable objects for wormholes? Something to maybe stabilize wormholes or collapse them fast? At the moment Wormhole space is rather boring in terms of siteseeing and nebula. Will you be able to maybe spawn sites with wrecks that dont contain any actual sleepers, like the huge dead stations you see on the way to Eve Gate? Will there be Nebula specific for Wormholes? Are the current Wormhole effect nebula's getting a rework?

The current cyno mechanics that enable a ship with a jump drive to jump require two characters.This severaly limits the ability to move a Capital unless one has a cyno account or corp mates/friends able to assist.However the latter is dependent on other people and in many cases there is a need for independance which can only be achieved with a cyno alt.Have you ever felt that people who do not want to multi-box are severaly limited in this matter?Other people cannot always be at your disposal not in the place you wish them to be when you you want them to be.

While EVE is first and foremost a social MMORPG some things are simply impractical when relying on other people resulting in the inevitable cyno alt.At the end of the day the use of cyno alts is tedious.Have changes to the cyno mechanics ever been brought it up in the form perhaps of a cyno probe or other solo friendly solution to eliminate or provide an alternative to cyno alts?

The crushing majority of people do not create a second account just for cyno alts therefore there is small relation to the issue of losing subscriptions.

As it stands now (especially for pve) Hybrid weapon systems don't have the damage, range or tracking to compare to the other races. Blasters are of course viable in pvp but lack the range to be productive in pve and Rail Guns have almost no use in any format when compared to the other three long range weapon systems. Horrifying tracking and damage.

What are CCP's plans for Hybrid weapons and what kind of rough time-frame are we looking at?

P.S. Very happy with the recent changes to UI and hotkeys. More to do so please keep them coming. Very Happy

Are there any plans to remove the stacking penalty that currently affects Electronic Warfare-related gang link modules? It takes quite a few million SP to take full advantage of these, and it's a shame that this investment is so easily negated.

Questions aside for the moment, I just wanted to say that this type of thread does more to get to the heart of what both the player base AND the development team is thinking than any other format.

and when will mac users be able to input Japanese/Chinese characters into the game without having to copy/paste?

When are capital ships going to be fixed [add sub-systems, remove titans/supercarriers, add maintenance fees etc] so people don't neccesarilly need a supercarrier or dreadnaught to partake in sovereignity warfare?

Will moons eventually get the PI treatment?

Calculating important marked data is based on a central database server. All of those dataservers like eve-central demanding a little tool to read the cache. This is a potential security issue

Do CCP intend to give us better marked data, without the need of an external tool?

Because I forgot to ask this earlier:

Are there any plans on rebalancing blasters/hybrids in general? They seem to be rather underwhelming and extremely underused atm.

Same question for information mindlinks. The bonuses they provide are nowhere near as effective as their armor/shield/skirmish counterparts (for example the ECCM link is less than half an ECCM mod, whereas the invuln link for shields is somewhere between a t1 and t2 invuln wrt effectiveness, and 15% bonus for TPs/TDs? Come on...)

Will we ever be able to either rename PI structures or add notes/info to them? I find it rather inconvenient to have to guesstimate which silo and/or launchpad holds what when I import stuff. Somehow something like "XR-34" doesn't make it clear to me that's where the Silicate Glass goes. Wink

Might there be a possibility of skill re-mapping? I've talked with friends who have trained up a certain way before deciding they wanted to do things differently.. even with the loss of funds spent on skill books many people I know have agreed that this would be a nice option to have

What is being done to contain the notorious criminal, Jerry Rin?
He has been terrorizing the Rens area for quite some time. He is clearly too powerful to defeat and rumour has it that he is an incredibly powerful man. 8 feet tall with razor sharp teeth. Able to rip the horns off of a charging bull using only his teeth.

Anyways, he terrorizes the Rens area demanding "teh sparz" from those unlucky few who dare challenge him. His vast criminal network extends far beyond this game, and I have heard whispers that his political influence in the South-east Asian area is just as significant as his power in the North American and European criminal organizations. These are just whispers though.... and I know nothing.

However, we should try to focus on the issues that pertain to the game:

what is to be done about this criminal mastermind? What will you do to stop his seemingly unending rampage that leaves us all battered and destroyed in his horrifying wake?
There have been successful campaigns demanding his freedom from the bondage you once placed him under, and it seems that his overwhelming public support is enough to allow him to do anything at all.....

Is there anything that can be done to stop a man this powerful, or must we once again be forced to bow down to his seemingly limitless god-like power?

Why were pos passwords never given the ability to also be set by standings? It kinda defeats the purpose of them when they are so easily obtained by spys.

Any chance that ther might be a hauler between industrial and freighter? the difference between ~30k cargo and ~1000k seems kinda wide How about a super industrial of a light freighter?

How about some way to customize the apearence of your ship? colors or corp symbols? Since the real avatar for a player is his ship all the focus on the portrait seems to miss the point

I know this is Old but i have to ask.... Why are Rail Guns weak is there some adavatage to them now? it seems like in the past they were alot nicer guns. And is there any way to give differnt race ships, differnt sounds??? Based upon engine Design all ships sound almost exactly alike; when i fly all ships sound nearly the same to me, I'am very auditory so sound stands out to me. Also it would be cool if each race had engines that might convey a differnce in how Big the ship is? ie not just adding bass which gets old quick ><.

Do you guys ever get tired of hearing people say "no new features! Fix lag!"

I don't think people realize new players pay a little more money to start an account than existing players pay per month.

-Will dreads be able to orbitally bombard planets with the release of dust 514 or similar eve update? If so will other ships have this ability? E.g. will carriers and super-carriers be able to launch fighters to attack ground targets? Will battleships be able to bombard planets but with much smaller amounts of damage etc?

-and are there tech 3 battleships in the making or planned?

Thanks for any replys :)

1)Are there any thoughts about the possibility of using Incursion style plexing mechanics for other purposes, such as control of lowsec systems? Giving us system-wide effects, LP rewards based on participation, or other reasons to actually engage in seizing of territory again in lowsec Faction Warfare?

*Note - I had read in an interview with one developer that the code was designed to do just that - be modular and useable for revitalizing other outdated NPC plexing systems.

2) Does CCP have any plans to revisit Faction Warfare development at all? Or is it considered a finished feature or simply low priority compared to other projects. (We can handle the truth!! just be honest...)

Thanks, devs for your time and for listening to us!

Posted - 2011.05.10 19:20:00 - [810]

Have the devs done any work to introduce a sort of 'dead-space randomization system'? It really irks me that the content in a mission, or pretty much any dead-space encounter, is always the same.
