While the NEX store is a disappointment, there's a lot to like about this expansion.

The new turrets are absolutely amazing. I love how they work, I love how they pew, pulse lasers look absolutely AWESOME now. Whoever is responsible for those in particular - amazing job. ♥

The jump bridge changes are long overdue. They force alliances to actually defend their space a little bit - even if it is just a few gates - in order to protect their carebears. Nullsec will be more fun for everyone.

The Captain's Quarters is pretty cool if you understand that it's really just a tech demo being tested in the wild before they continue expanding upon it. Have you watched the cool stuff go across the screen?

Unprobeable ships are unprobeable no more. They're still hard to catch - you need excellent skills, etc. - but now people need to pay attention a bit to what they're doing. The downside is this will make lowsec even more empty than it is, but at least people are no longer invincible.

Have you seen the Sacrilege ship model? It's gorgeous. All silver and black and evil looking. Love it.

For mission runners, a lot of stuff has been added, fixed, and rebalanced. That's good for everyone.

The new corporation recruitment tool is pretty nice as well. I'm not sure how much use it will get - I've always found the forums and word of mouth to be to be better - but it was a nice overhaul.

I was actually worried a bit about running multiple characters, but I'm running 2 clients in CQ just fine on high graphics and my laptop isn't top of the line. Just your average 2 year old sony vaio.

Of course there could be a lot more stuff to add and more functionality to the screens or being able to flip through the channels with your remote. But of course, this is only the ground work and if they tried to patch the game with EVERYTHING and ALL the features and functionality. The chance of it going wrong and breaking the game are a lot higher. This way they lay the groundwork, fix that, then add more. Just be patient!

And what was also already said here..Yes, this is OPTIONAL. If you don't like CQ, turn it off and continue your day as normal with upgraded turret graphics. If you don't like AURUM, don't use it!
I also think the AURUM is slightly too high, so I won't use it just yet. Easy isn't it?

I love Incarna... but I dont love only ONE of FOUR races getting there CQ's. That is my problem.


No worries, this is just the first one. The others will come and we should have everything they wanted to bring in Incarna by august. Since Incursion, they like bringing expansions in parts.

Well Incarna is as I see it mostly of a staging "patch". Nothing new to play around with really.
But this was the devs plans all the way. Adding too much features would much likely be a bit too hard to roll out.

When the bugs, stability problems and optimizations are in place it's so much easier to add the gameplay on top of that.

Boring? Yes!

It's the gameplay and the social interaction that will add the fun later on.

I honestly think its very impressive. The fact that Eve is aware of its community enough to put Clear Skies on the ticker is amazing. Maybe figure out a way to have Clear Skies, Jita Cam, or past Alliance Tournaments as movie channels in game would be awesome.

First time walking down the hallway and seeing the ship was a "Holy ****ing Christ" moment. I had the biggest **** eating grin on my face for almost twenty minutes afterwards.

Not sure what everyone is complaining about not being able to run it. I have a dual monitor, dual account set up and I run both stations side by side. I can't wait to see the other races.

Simply Amazing. If this is how WoD is going to look you already have a subscriber.

Thanks CCP... I was watching the HELP channel after Incarna's launch, and it was pathetic, all the *****ing and whining by petulant children. How about a little patience? I've been playing this game on and off since beta (with my other account) and if you are unaware that problems will be fixed, then maybe video gaming should be off your short list of things to do. Eve Online is one of the great experiences we get in life for the price of two movie tickets a month. If this doesn't meet your demands, then leave, move on and find something better to do.... I for one applaud the effort and results that CCP has with this game.

Sincerely,
Anigava

Thank you CCP for the amazing captain's quarters Smile

They need just a little work and some additional funcionality. Hope you deliver the other CQs soon. I'm really looking forward to the establishments. Keep up the good work!

Loving everything so far, especially the news feed on the center screen! I think the notification of new players joining was a really nice touch. I anticipate one day becoming bored and just sending messages to new players I see pop up, welcoming them to New Eden.

Moopy there's a reason that you had to look hard for a " great job CCP " thread in the midst of all the flames.

Perhaps you haven't been around long enough to know your EVE history.

-there's some bugs here and there and things need some attention, but that's nothing new and it's not like CCP won't fix them.
* wrong - this game has a long history of persistent bugs that take forever to get fixed. Rockets took years, t3 still don't work at a pos. Add to this the most recent bugs of no longer being able to warp to scanned objects and the list is getting longer not shorter.

If you were at all aware of EVE history this has been a classic complaint of 'bitter old vets'. People asking for fixes to old problems Before new broken content gets added. Stick around long enough and you'll become a vet and start asking the same questions. Why hasn't this been fixed yet. Why are they making new stuff when quite a bit of the old stuff doesn't work the way it should. Why did they add a new feature but in the process bug up some other feature and in effect make things worse instead of better. Why is the quality control process on an established game seem to be getting worse as it gets older and not better ? Why is there an alleged player consultative body ( the CSM ) and these forums if they wont listen to what WE the customer want ? Why have they refused even after all these years to fail to understand that we'd near universally rather wait a little longer for a clean version than have to put up with half baked, half finished, half witted roll outs.

To have spent 4 years of resources on this expansion and to have such a poorly organized roll out is inexcusable, and THAT is what has PO'ed so many people. At the moment it appears as if all this effort has been a waste of energy. Imagine if you would how many more ships than just the maller could have been re-done if resources had been directed at them instead of making Machariel priced monocles ? Then you'll understand why so many peeps are upset.

WOW Thumbs up to incarna and CQ
This was a great change and a lot of content in a short time. It was a big boost to immersion. I can't wait to see more and I hope some of those weird items I have collected that have no apparent purpose can be rewarding as viewable/vanity items in the future. The CQ opens Eve up to the upcoming Dust changes and it allows CCP to guide player participation. The CQ inspired me to take up the Planet Management just so I could use the interface.

I never particularly wanted Incarna, but I can see where they are wanting to go with it and I was pleasantly surprised by it. I think it is quite well done, especailly for the first release. I am having a nerdgasm over the turrets though. Thanks CCP

The prices on the monacle etc are way too high. My suggestion would be to make them 1/10 of the price but make them destroyable when you lose your pod. ;)

I love how people like you assume anyone with anything good to say about the expansion is a CCP alt. Turns out, there's actual players who can enjoy things for what they are, rather than ***** about them.

I can;t stand people like you. its an addition to the game, not a total re-write. its Entirely Optional. Even down to CQ. Just don't load it if you don't want it and make do with an image of a door. Vanity items... thats up to you aswell. Whining about nothing. God you make me mad

Personally i think it looks awesome and its the first step in a (hopefully) long line of additional content. It makes for a more full and rich backstory/enviroment to play in


Hate to burst your pink bubble there bubba, but WoW is just a few steps ahead of eve, once a game based on its gameplay elements and being a very fine one at that until they introduced all the barbie crap, now it is world of noobcraft and eve will go down that drain aswell because lets face it, there is only cash cows nowadays.

alright, ill bite and say something nice after the *****ing I did earlier...

I like the general look of the CQ, there are bugs to iron out and my ships do look cool from the balcony. I just wish I wasn't forced into it on every dock!!!

I understand that Incarna is a bit pointless, ATM. And I think the vanity shop is overpriced and superfluous. But I think the game is going in the right direction. And the art department of CCP seems to be worlds ahead of where it was at the game's onset. The captains quarters look great; I really can't wait to see more environments. And the new Maller looks pretty sweet. They took one of the more awkward looking ships, and facelifted it into one of the cooler looking ships in the game (with retaining some of the old styling ques).

My only concern is that after playing the game for a few years, I come to see how slow everything develops in this game (like many of you). And I worry they are going to devote time and resources to a vanity shop, when so many other parts of the game desperately need attention.

For all the spies in EVE, mark down these pilots names that have given CCP some credit, They're all DEV'S ALTS


They're not brave enough to post under their DEV names.

All alts because no one is capable of having a different opinion to mine. I SPEAK FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD.

On topic - I think Incarna is a great starting point for future development, and the new turrets are just awesome :D

Ignore all the naysayers, they're just alts of CCP's competitors trying to discredit the game. Yes, all of them.

Has some issues but it's a good start.
Just need more CQs, more features and then open up the rest of the station.
Oh and fix the controls and camera.



Sounds like CQ is still in a beta version eh ? =)

Back from work now and I've had a good play with Incarna.

It runs flawlessly on medium settings using interval one on my HD3850/AMD6000+ w. 2gb of ram. I can only run one instance ofc, but I don't need more than that for the alts.

What can I say? The controls are 'classic' and very quickly make perfect sense and work really well. The sound is lovely. The whole atmosphere of being in a hangar is great.

The avatar body animations are poor and should be completely motion captures imho.

Apart from that? Accomplished stuff from ccp and I hope presages a whole new era of interaction and immersion.

However it is ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL that we retain the option to toggle the environment to make managing multiple clients practical. Its not just to 'opt out of incarna cos its ghey' its to make playing eve as we are accustomed to doing it possible as we go forward. Just sayin. Again. Hope someone is listening. Very Happy

I completely support Incarna.

The the old vets who claim that CCP has given it to them up the ass, claim this every single time a large update rolls by. And they will continue to take it up the ass, and continue to complain for years to come. Let em, no one cares.

For the rest of us, who treat this like a GAME and not a JOB, may CCP prosper in their endeavors.

For those of you who dislike Incarna, and simply choose to disable the feature and not purchase Aurum clothes without QQing on the forums, you are almost saintly in your rationale, and we thank you.

Dude, what you dont get is that I'm waiting for a real extension for 2 years now.

Since wormholes, CCP focused on total useless crap that didnt bring anything to the game.
CCP sucks, you newcomers suck, you'll see what fun it is to have beautiful Barbies and Ken when the real game is dead.

Love the idea and dream for Eve. Dislike how it's done at the moment but have faith that some improvements will be made.

Edit - Appreciation for Icarna this was. I do not appreciate CCP at the moment. Give me a few more years to get over this whole Dust 514 business :P
