11. (depreciated) Jump queues. These I can understand going into Jita, but when you're the only pilot for 3 jumps around, having to wait 20 minutes to get from one system to another drives me postal.

10. Warping sound.

9. The size of the Caldari carrier. 9b Its rotation point.

8. Forum whiners. Yes, I see the hypocrisy.

7. CTD's that manage to leave your ship in the game just long enough to be blown up.

6. Drone Control, or lack thereof.

5. The Mail Bug. How this is such a low priority to fix with the Devs, I'll never know.

4. Documentation? What documentation? The forums should not be essential reading just to play the game. A shocking amount of the in-game rules enforced by GM's are ONLY listed in the forums. 4b. Searching Forums. Ye gods, the pain.

3. 'Acquiring bulk data'. EVE is a very low-bandwidth game, but on a 56k dial-up, this part of the log-in process can take up to 15 minutes.

2. 14 hour skills. Well, any skill in the 3-hour to 24 hour range. I know 'dual skill' training is supposedly in development, but it shouldn't be hard to at least code up 'sequential training', so when level 2 of a skill finishes it goes straight to level 3, etc.

1. T2 production.

: pointless lag after getting your ship destroyed, which tends to result in your aggressor getting your pod aswell, all between frames.

An opportunity to complain about the game I love, I readily accept!!


THE MAIL BUG, AAAAAAA, THE HORROR!!

Also, fps lag can get annoying, I ran at 80 fps before the dragon patch. now i'm at 20 in heavy missions.

there is a way round that, just before ur ship goes bang select a moon and click it... repteaedly mash the warp button in ur selected items thing and it should sort itself out.

In no particular order:

Ship designs which look like complete garbage.
Space station designs which look like complete garbage.
Hideous space backdrops.
The Learning skills.
No skill queue. Not even a short one.
Stars, planets, and moons, modeled to an insanely small scale.
Bumping ships.
T2 cartels.
Session changes.
Lag.

Just because systems are next to each other does not mean they are on the same node. I was traveling through providence during the TCF tribute invasion and got stuck in a system for over 40 minutes due to the fighting up there.


Theres like 15-20 systems throughout the galaxy on a node. One could be in curse, the other in The Forge region and another over by syndicate.

CCP Fanboybeotches.



I more or less agree with your list, but I see fanboi(y) being thrown around a lot.

Is anyone that says anything positive about CCP a fanboi(y)? Then what are you doing playing the game? Laughing

The market history bug.
A bug with contracts not being properly assigned.
The whining about the level of safeness that about 5% of the population seems to expect.
The whining about the ability to grief that another 5% of the populations seem to expect.

I actually do not use any sound to play the game, there are to many irretation repeating noises. My sound is turned off permanently.

Two main things I hate about Eve.

1. Forum whiners (particularly the carebear ones who whine endlessly about Eve not being exactly the game they want it to be).

And an even greater hate:

2. Alt forum whiners (not that we find any in this topic, oh no Rolling Eyes).

i'd like the ability to queue skills so i could go to bed when a skill has like 30 minutes left but i dont feel like waiting or switching to a longer skill.

I'd second that, I'm on 8 meg broadband and I'd noticed that this stage took longer and longer over time. Cleared my cache and connection dropped back down to a few seconds.

A "clear cache" button on Eve's login screen would be useful, as it's recommended for a lot of things but the actual procedure can be a pain to find.

My gripes, in order.

1) No Skill training queue, or continuation of current skill line when a skill level has completed. Even a 'next skill to train' would be good.

2) Hybrid ammo that only does Thermal and Kinetic Damage. I'd like the option of Explosive/EM or explosive thermal, or whatever.

3) Only getting cash bonus rewards in missions - I liked getting 200 small neutron blasters and other crap as bonus rewards.

4) No notification on the overview showing who's jamming you, or scramming you so you can pick them off first if you want to.

I'm sure there's other stuff, but that's it for now.

Disagree, I prefer getting cash only.
