Well, it's been a couple of months since Incarna hit, and now that we've had plenty of time to mull over it, I'm actually curious as to STATISTICS.

What's your opinion of Incarna? Keeping in mind, when I refer to Incarna, I refer strictly to the CQ part, not the turrets or any other part of the patch.

1: Bad
2: Poor
3: Average
4: Good
5: Great

In the name of not biasing the audience, I'll refrain from giving my own opinion. Also, don't bring in your alts to vote; This is about collecting opinions, not ****waving.

Its been an novelty since the start. I know it will be better with a multiplayer aspect however I expected that by the end of the summer. Not in 18 months but such is the way of eve.

1 at the moment, but when 'establishments' comes out it could get a 5.

Basically, we should wait and reserve judgement - I'm hopeful it will turn out well.

5 - I am honestly looking forward to what this will hold for the future. I see it as just a first step, an awkward first step, but a first step none the less. I envision RP meetings within dark conference rooms between corps and whatnot, etc, etc.. I enjoy RP and diplomacy, not just pew pew. I can get that anywhere.

2/5

But lets be honest here its not finished captains quarters is just supposed to collect information on how incarna runs on peoples machines without muddying it up with being in the same room as 50 other people but i do like the new avatars in the images they look way better
than the old once but so far that's why it got Poor rather than bad at this moment in time, but they need to work on optimizing it and also making interaction with your ship while in captain quarters not so cumbersome.

also i think they should have allowed poeple to use the old station view, but i think part of the reason is because they wanted people to use it so they could get data on how well its working, second because nvidia provided the apex engine which allows the hair and cloths to move so fluidly and probably eve got a better deal if they basically nearly forced people to use captains quarters because the background if you turn it off is so horrid and its no longer as functional because you cant interact with your ship though the background, there by making people more likely to buy new graphics cards.

3 - A good beginning.

Would be 4 if not for the hardware issues.

Is 5 for the single aspect of avatar recustomisation and the NEX.

3/5

I can see where they are trying to go with the graphics engine, but what they have done so far is average, even though the code that runs it seems far ahead of its time, at this point I am more concerned with the ability to actually produce the content itself in large enough quantities to satisfy the game itself, i.e. I am at least marginally concerned that most of the fun bits they develop will end up in WoD instead of EVE, but if that means the EVE teams get back to spaceships faster, so be it.

I think most non-programmers have the impression that lighting effects and the coding that applies them are integral with the actual code that creates the objects themselves, this could not be farther from the truth, the lighting effects are algorithms and formulas that are applied to the objects, not the other way around.

The actual avatars themselves are pretty advanced compared to most of what you have elsewhere, and don't gimme that crap about shooters or whatever, I am talking about the dynamic movement they are doing with strands of hair, clothing, etc. that stuff is where they have been focusing, they have been showcasing exactly that for years, and that is where they are trying to do some trend setting in the industry, by creating something that has not been wholly sussed out yet, i.e. low level particle physics applied to ambient elements, such as hair, clothing, etc (the kind of stuff you see and get from modern games like BF2 for instance, destructible environments, etc. is still relatively new stuff, before all you would get are stains on the walls that would last for some designated time you set on your client in some designated quantity, now the entire wall collapses, and stays that way, couple years ago you would have been hard pressed to find a lot of modern games doing that). they are trying to bring the physics engine to even more elements of your typical fare when it comes to avatar games. I just wish they had done this for WoD itself, and not for EVE, I would have been more than pleased if they purchased licensing rights to use an existing graphics engine from any modern shooter, and just gave us shooter avatars that walked and ran around in circles and could move their arms and heads around, and that's it.

But they decided to try to capitalize on what they wanted to do with WoD but doing it for EVE first... to me this makes sense, but I wish it hadn't been done this way, we would have had WiS years ago if they just used a common engine and slapped new skins on the avatars, and called it a night.

1/5 I would rather the "update" had never occurred. Maybe they will change this with future updates, but for now, it's a step backward.

1/5.

The decision to completely drop the old hanger view after stonewalling all the players concerns about it for 2 months after Incarna release has me really disappointed.

Incarna has added nothing but disappointment for me.

I cant believe within a second of logging in PI is ****ed up, station dock crash, gas giants still have render glitch and character re-custome crashes client.

I want my money back and that's all I am going to say until it is returned.

3 months of this crashing on a game I paid for and I pay for two accounts.

1/5

Has added no content to the game is a resource hog on gpu's. I don't know of many people who actually use it. I mean I guess if the whole sci-fi genre is a draw to you then perhaps but imo KOTR will do that better than Eve so whats the point. CCP needs to realize that Eve's strengths are full loss pvp with real diverse economy and player scripted content that is only dependent on good mechanics/tools from the game in which to create said content. CCP's efforts should be focused on cultivating interaction between players at all levels. So we have more reasons more ways to generate content amongst ourselves. That is what make Eve a winner and will increase there financial gain.

1/5 It's incomplete and it reduced functionality. And it had about 5 minutes of "fun" factor before I turned it off.

1/5

this thing is a drawback as it is now, serious problems and that are very annoying problems.

by the way, CQ nuked me a very good nvidia card, that was a lot of money burned and the replacement too was not cheap. annoyed and a bit disappointed.

Let me add something that anyone with a college degree have known to put as a disclaimer. If your actually interested about STATISTICS

'This poll is non-scientific. This is most definitely NOT a random sample of the EvE population. The uniqueness of each response cannot be verified. As such, no inference should be taken from this poll as to how the actual playerbase feels regarding the subject of the poll.'

You're not trying to show bias right?

Thats pretty much it. If you understood my post, you would understand why I don't care. Polls don't mean anything unless they are drawn from a representative sample.

It's a good thing I don't need such a disclaimer seeing as I'm collecting data rather than publishing statistics, isn't it?

You do know that all data has statistics associated with it right? And you did say you are interested in statistics. Do I need to quote it for you?

Dated graphics.
Lighting incorrect.
Lack of functionality.
Lore breaking.
Wrong genre.
Long loading time.
Unoptimized.
High gpu requirements.
Rolled out in a rush.
Glitchy.

So, 1/5. Should have been optimized, tested and polished a lot more prior to release even if it is totally out of place.
