Hey all,

Call me what you will, but what _exactly_ is Shiva? From reading some player posts it appears to be an expansion of sorts. But, I cannot find an initial Dev post announcing it.

Anyone?

It's simply the codename for the next major patch. What that patch will include should be written in assorted Dev blogs, and/or in the patch review forum.

The more notable things about shiva you should know (before you have to ask).

Q: Will it be free?
A: Yes.

Q: Will it have new stuff?
A: Including player owned stations, potentialy some new ships... ETC.

Q: How will gameplay be effected.
A: Dungeons (sounds like a bad name, but the way they are described sounds interesting... think of em as more content for your hunting/grouping/agent missions needs.). Add to this a list of balance changes that will radically change game play for some, and better balance the game for *hopefully* everyone.

Q: Anything else?
A: New User interface, and a HUD capable of fitting more module slots so we can have more than 8 slots in each level. Level 4 agents (I think), tons more of everything (or so we are told.).

Q: Is it worth waiting for? Where do I get it!?
A: Not sure, some say yes, some say no... We'll know soon enough. To get it just do what your normally do... Turn on EVE, and one day it will just patch onto your computer automatically. No muss, no fuss... No new CD's to buy and install... CCP has the right idea about expansions to the game so far... But I would also suggest that none of these "New" things are really NEW, as many of them are mentioned on the box as already being IN The game LOL. So really, we're just getting some of the things that should have come with the initial release after a year ;)

anyway keep your eyes open, rumor has it that if it's going to be released anytime soon it will be by the end of may. I personaly doubt it's still on target for it's release... I don't mind some delays... I just hope we don't have to wait till the end of summer, or worse yet X-Mas for it... I know I know... Less bugs if it's delayed... Great, fine good... Blah blah... In the mean time CCP should release more TechII if they are going to delay Shiva more than a few weeks to a month...

Player Owned Stations won't be in before Kali, but Player Owned Structures will.

No, it means that u can not only conquer existing stations but build your own stations near a moon.

shiva is another stage just like gemeni and castor.
We had high hopes for castor, but look at it now. Shiva will be the same, until offcourse kali, but then thatll be disapointing.
owh and Shiva used to be tech 3 officially, but since some ccp guy wrecked the tech 2 stuff release (...ugh papa smurf ugh...). its not the stage with tech 3. so basicly itll be POS and thatll be about the only thing revolutionairy tbh, dongeons will take 2 months or so to balance so theyll be post-shiva by the time (much like the new 0.0 spawns in castor).
