Dear CCP,

I have a 2 years old MacBook Pro, which was top-of-the-line at the time of purchase. It's an Intel 2.8GHz Core Duo, 4GB mem, GeForce 9600M GT with 512M video memory. I can easily do mining, industry jobs, missioning, and small-scale PvP with my computer.

However, CQ made my playing experience deteriorate deeply. It takes 15-30 seconds to load CQ, and after loading there's no "immersion"; just v-e-r-y s-l-o-w station environment. CQ is practically unplayable.

Until you can make CQ as resource-low as other parts of the game are, could you please keep CQ optional.

CQ can be switched off in the settings right from the release. Option is called "load station environment" in the same window where is graphics quality is controlled.

Other thing is, that i would not recommend to you to play eve for now.
I have the same exact model with same specs and in times i get 96C on CPU and about 74C on GPU. You risk overheating your machine.

P.S. For those who tend do propose "fancontrol" programs - yes i do have it installed and fans are spinning 6200.
P.P.S. I have already submitted a petition in this regard.
