Someone linked to one of my old posts recently, which I reread. One of my proposals was to use (and I quote ..)

Originally by: Eventy One
Inject locked gates into space that link to Jove space: the gates need not look like gates, they could be singularities that warp.


I proposed using singularities (i.e. wormholes) instead of gates for travel in this thread.

Of course, I was hoping the wormholes would lead to Jove space, and CCP has instead lead them to Sleeper space, but still - the prediction was there .. and stands.

Of course, it implies that we should wonder about additional additions in the future. For example, since we can now access Sleeper space, should we expect Takmahl, Talocan or Yan Jung space too (them being the other ancient races)?

Eventually will there be other avenues of travel than gates and wormholes?

I still like the suggestions I made in that post for getting to Jove space, and although I didn't quite get right how tech 3 would be accessible, what CCP's done to make it accessible is in line with the idea that you have to work for towards it.

I think what was obvious, is clearly exceptional technology is going to require clearly exceptional effort to get.

Given the post referenced above .. where I was attempting to offer suggestions to get to Jove space, I find CCP's most recent patch, obvious, well thought out, balanced for the most part, and moving in the right direction.

Nor did I say I was .... but I think some directions CCP can go with this game are obvious .. and I don't think thats a bad thing.

I still hope, eventually to have the opportunity to get to Jove space. For now, I'm happy CCP has given us Sleeper space.

As kick butt, as Sleepers are, I look forward to the Takmahls, the Talocan's and the Yan Jungs too!

Someone, I don't remember who (Ruze?), has a link to their wormhole suggestion in their sig.

That > this.

Minimal similarity is minimal. You're grasping at straws to look special.

Well done in suggesting / prediticting your idea. Sadly you cant claim credit for it - you're beaten to the line ever so slightly by an earlier post in 2003 :

Well done to you all ...... but what other directions do you want to see CCP Move in?

I've suggsted, for example, that bringing in the Sleepers suggests bringing in the Talocan, Yan Jung and Takmahl as well. Anyone, disagree that this would be also welcomed additions?

What other things, do people feel, CCP's actions predict?

meh. Eve started due to a wormhole. You don't get points for predicting something that already happened.

I predicted playstation 2! When playstation 1 came out I said: "only thing better than this would be if they could make this even better."

I saw your sig and thought it was part of your post.

I felt that your post was appropriate in its entirety. So I am quoting towards the OP.

I predicted the current incarnation of w-systems, even down to the random connections and differing rulesets. Check it.

Uncharted Space

My play on Sovereignty fixes.

Genesis Project

Fleet formations and anti-blob mechanics.

Strategic Fleets

All about NPC's and breathing life into EvE's space.

NPC Traffic

To be honest, none of the ideas are truly mine, just re-writes of common ideas on these forums. But I like playing with concepts like these, and will revisit one now and again. Good fun.

If you post nice ideas in the feat forum, there'll be implemented... Got a few like these myself Cool

What sort of loser would feel the need to point this out? I mean seriously, do you have any self-respect at all? Why are you so desperate for the approval of people you have never met who live thousands of miles away?

Here's some news: we just aren't interested. nobody cares. stfu.

Anyway, I said in 2003 "I bet that game's going to be full of jerks", and what do you know? I was spot on. Where's my cookie?

Have you ever even heard of the eve gate? The entire basis for this galaxy being populated with fruity carebears = an unstable wormhole. It was never a giant leap of faith to assume that wormhole travel would be introduced at some point.

I was 10, and I came up with the idea of a space ship game that was EPIC and HUMONGOUS (didn't know that word back then though...).

And then I played Elite.

Elite stole my ideas!!!

Can't really be impressed by a prediction that uses ideas from the official Eve Backstory.

Gate technology is based on the creation of artificial wormholes, so predicting that there might be actual "wild" wormholes is hardly a major feat.

Even further up the backstory is this EVE-Gate thingy which was supposed to be a stable wormhole...

Afaik, singularities are black holes, not worm holes.

Wow, tough crowd of trolls.

I purposfully post a provocative statement with a subtle challenge to offer some constructive views on where people would like to see EVE go or illicit some additional predcitions.

Only the trolls show up and in numbers. I Guess trolls are herd creatures.

Yes, yes, your not so intelligent insults have bruised my fragile ego- now troll else where.

To everyone else with more than a braincell;

1. Want to take a stab at other innovations that seem like obvious things for CCP to explore?

2. What will Yan jung space be like, should CCP introduce it (anything like sleeper space?) How about the Takmahl?
