With all the hub-bub about the changes, I decided to come back. Bought 3 months worth - and I have to say, I like it. One thing I always thought was missing was the immersion. It really feels like a Stanley Kubrick film. Dark, yet beautiful.

So I'm back. I know no one cares. But I'm back.

Stick around.

It will only get better.

I've been waiting a lot of years for this and look forward to seeing EVE open up more with each new addition.

Yep very immersive. You dock, magicaly appear straight out of your pod, pod goo is washed off, you even had time to slip into some new or old cloths, yet when you try to switch ships you get a message that you have to wait cause you're still docking.

Wait, what? Shocked

LOL, so true.

I think CCP needs to find a better supplier for the stuff they are smoking during brain storming sessions. This stuff seems to spawn the dumb ideas. Get the good stuff if you really want to be creative. I like most of the changes but some have had a significant negative affect on the community. If you make ten great decisions and one really bad one, it is the bad one everyone will remember.

The better error is when you try to clone jump, but apparently can't as you're in your ship.
You're on your sofa.
You apparently need to get in your pod to jump.

None of it makes sense.

Either I am on Acid,or you are on Valium , because it looked for all the world like you just made two positive,upbeat and dare I say friendly,statements in a single post.

Look I'm not saying that there aren't some serious flaws in the way we are forced to decant from our pods every single flippin' time we dock. But seriously, we all know why the session timer is there, does it matter if CCP has not gotten around to changing all the text prompts to indicate some [random fictional explanation for why our ship is not ready yet] that matches the new content?

I call it as I see it.

And what I see is a forum full of whiny, entitled morons spewing hate for no reason other then they are anonymous. But the game itself, while not without flaws, is IMO constantly improving. I will always give props for that.

OK, since you asked nicely Very Happy

The premise of the issue that you were responding to was that being dumped on the balcony at every dock is unnecessarily immersion breaking. It did not have to happen, it was blatantly forced on the players to make sure the NeX store had as much exposure as possible. Calling complaints about this nitpicking or saying that some open work is understandable is really missing the point (that you seem to ba aware of so I don't understand why you try so hard to excuse the really shabby implementation of this whole CQ/Incarna business).

But I agree that the decanting on every dock is a little far fetched and forced.
I do not agree that pointing out mismatched or outdated text prompts is a sure sign that CCP missed the ball on the entire CQ experience itself.

Anyone who has been playing for more than a few years knows that text stuff is last on CCP's list.
I mean, they literally just added ship class to the T2 information window.

All I was making a point of was that there is no reason to expect CCP to devote an inordinate amount of time to the textual elements in the game more so than the actual content itself as they have a clear history of doing just that.

I definitely agree that being forced to decant upon docking every time is a bit much, even if they wanted exposure for the NEX, it just makes little sense in any way. I am in the middle of a sov war, but when I dock to reship I get out of my pod and get fully clothed first for thirty seconds, before I can strip down, get in my pod, hook up, reship, and wait again to undock into an ongoing battle?

I think you may have simply misunderstood the little that I did write, but I would appreciate it if you would ask me to clarify the next time, I am happy to debate whether I am schooled or do the schooling, but not happy to have assumptions made about me.

Not to mention that your whole crew sees you naked every time you dock up and exit your pod just next to your ship.

This is a good thread. Obviously OP is trolling you guys and is just waiting for a good opportunity to pull the rug out from under the likes of Epeen.

There is no chance one could call the current Incarna a step towards more immersion. While there is potential, EVE has always had incredible potential. Other examples of systems that had great potential, and I guess still do:

PI
FW
Bounties


I'm looking forward to the day when EVE actually puts the effort into developing these systems to unlock their potential, giving me a reason to resubscribe.

I like what they're doing with the game generally, turrets in particular were a long time coming. I'm not going to trust any more of my time or money though if I know CCP are going to aid douchebags in nerfing and buffing things that big alliances and gatecampers want along with the fuss over micro-transactions.

Good for you that you've found stuff you like in this game, I love the sovereignty map myself, but I'm not going to sit back and see all the sandbox elements of EVE get destroyed because of a few selfish turds who want an easier time in game because they've played the longest.

Hi, there is good news about this for all those who didn't already know.

The session change timer for changing ships has been removed (or rather will be removed - it's on Singularity at the moment and is confirmed for TQ)
