I just resubscribed after being gone for about 1.5 - 2 years. Did I miss much=P ? I'm DL the game atm and have an Amarr able to pilot a BS. I never really got around to doing much besides missions in it in .5 or above I think, before RL got a hold of me and and I had to go on my merry way.

I'm back and ready to see what changes are around and relearn the game again.

Any helpful nudges in some sort of direction, or words of encouragement would be appreciated =)

Very Happy

Well mate good luck.

Indeed a lot of things have changed in 2 years.

The good thing is you're Amarr, which for you the changes have been less than for many of the other races.

Weapon grouping is not as important to Amarr with the cap cost of firing your weapons, however you might group into 2-3 banks and make it work.

Rigs can help you a lot. CCC improve Cap recharge and there is one that causes lasers to use less cap to fire but take more pg to fit, both are excellent on Amarr ships.

Modules don't stack as well as they used to, in essence in your mid/lows more than 2 of the mod is generally a waste in many cases as you get diminishing returns.

Turn the tuturials and welcome pages on and read through them they'll give you a lot of basic info that has changed.

Certificates can help guide you into some skill choices if you have no idea.

Its more or less the same. CCP still guiding Bob along with an invisible hand, while lying to the players about it.

I for one welcome the crushing tyranny of our "dev guided" BOBR overlords.

Well, lets see what i can come up with out of my head:
- Ghost training' got nuked out of orbit.
- 30 and 90 day GTC's got obliterated, but in CCP's defense they sorta brought the 30 day sub back with ingame PLEXes.
- Level 5 missions got buffed
- Lowsec rats got buffed
- We now have wormholes, leading to challenging NPC's which drop stuff that can be used for T3 ships
- T3 ships are modular.
- Bob 'died' and got back.
- Lots of effort on CCP's side to fight lag.
- First Epic mission got recently launched, should be more soon™ with branching out missions.
- Faction war.
- New ship the Orca.
- Shuttles are no longer NPC seeded, so you might choke now and then on their current pricing.
- Scanning got an complete overhaul.
- Linux users are no longer officially supported, Mac's still are.
- GTC prices are 2 or 3 times what they where in the past.
- Missiles got heavily nerfed.
- We have a skill queue now.
- This year is the third round for CSM candidates, if you vote don't vote for pompeus or cat of 9 tails...ugh
- High sec got quiet a bit more safe thanks to the Goons mass suiciding Hulks and other mining barges.
- There's only one EVE client called premium, with all settings off or to low its called 'premium lite'.
- The whinage on the forums is still the same and the forums self are still....
- And some other stuff I forgot


Oh, welcome back. Very Happy
