So if you updated the Navy Apoc to have the decent bonus and cap, why did you leave the Paladin with the old cap and bonus? ugh

Ahead of schedule by several hours... Great job!

I also have to add that the news stories on the 'update' page were excellent. I don't RP in EVE, but these stories were an inspired way to provide entertainment (and could also have been used to provide progress updates, if needed). I hope we see something similar in future patches!

Well done... just need to play now :)

Very very nice stuff on Minmatar/Amarr YARRRR!!.

Sadly, the Caldari/Gallente seems more of a cheap ass cop out last minute lack of inspiration 5 year old's 'what I did in the holidays' effort, utterly devoid of any imagination, will have to see if they manage to salvage that p.o.s. storyline, pathetic... imo of course Evil or Very Mad

Great job on the news stories, CCP! Talk about building anticipation. I can't wait to get home and sign up my corp for the militia.

Probably going to lose some sec status tonight. :)

First, thanks for your efforts on a quick patch process, I hope all goes well.

Second, I really enjoyed the news item throughout the process. Very exciting stuff! Glad to hear they'll be put into the regular news channel. A trailer or two would be awesome as well.

Downloading the patch now. Can't wait.

Nice job.

Woa, so about these mercenaries. Are there really NPCs that have a 10 mill bounty on them? Will the captains be in the wreck?

I am still dling the patch, but I want to say amazing job with all the news reports during the patch process. I love the large amount of news and stories that have been written and published for FW. I am a bit upset that I am in an alliance and will not be able to participate in FW, however I can still enjoy the process, the tension, and the excitement of FW through the news articles. Please continue to provide this same quantity (and quality) of news stories even after FW has been deployed.

Also, WTB Faction Warfare on DVD... Honestly just the opening fights that were on the downtime news page rendered and made into a movie would be amazing.

Coz it would be rediculously overpowered ? If you fit it correctly it is already a very good ship.

On the other hand, to have finally made the apoc worth flying as a combat ship again, but overlooking the navy variant definitely needed fixing.

Mind you, as a firm fan of the Paladin, if they did decide to buff it, I wouldn't complain Very Happy

Oh and to CCP (back on topic) I would also like to say good job on the time-filling news stories. Patch days in the last 5 years have been crying out for something like this. Frankly (IMO) pictures of drunken internet spaceship fans on holiday in Iceland isn't nearly as good as this latest idea ... Keep it up.

Now, off to see if the patch breaks my good mood Shocked

I can't wait to go get in game and go see Caldari Prime and Yulai.

Epic win CCP, best patch deployment ever. Ahead of schedule, at least the posted schedule, great story in between as well. I really hope this will be a trend from now on.

Kudos CCP for again setting an industry standard. I hope that other MMO's take note of this and follow suit, and people say story is not important bah.

Oh, and thanks for the best birthday present ever.
