API

This powerfull and lazy way of getting data from the game. Tools like dotlan, are so powerfull that you don't have the joy of discovery anymore. You don't have to go into enemys space, you can check from dotlan, whats going on. Are they ratting in their home system, or not. Everything can be found through API. It also has made getting into corporations and alliances total farce. Now, even smallest highsec mining corporations think that they are so important, that they have to ask API. Why? Because everyone else is doing so! API has killed the 'fog of war' from eve.

CCP has failed to deliver dangerous and unknown space. There is maps even from uncharted area, w-space.

Exploration has been a joke for years, just mindless grinding.

Also, remove local chat instant list!!! Even in highsec!

I don't see a problem with that. Even I know what I did last summer.

Dangerous and unknown eve is detrimental to ccp finishing world of darkness and launching its new cash cow.

Welcome to the carebearification of eve for maximum short term profits.

You knew it would happen sooner or later.

I don't know what I did last summer, but that's ok. Since Dotlan knows all I have to do is ask.

Kind of like knowing how many are in a system so you can account for all to make sure you're safe.

Or like knowing how many have traveled through a system recently without even being there.

Or like knowing how many are in a system and if they are is space from across the massive Eve star cluster, that can be crossed in a mere few hours.

Yes, Eve is nothing but a sand box...
I was looking for something a bit bigger, and a bit more mysterious.
