This new intro isn't horrible, it teaches you a bit about EVE and explains different career paths you can take.

But it lacks what the old one had. It made you excited to play EVE. The old one really showed you how huge EVE was, while the new one says "If you are manipulative then you can become a good diplomat"

So I propose we bring the old introduction back, and have the new one play whenever someone creates a character, and when it is done you can go into the actual character creation.

yes, the old one also gave the game back story. And what is the point of all these new graphics but to increase immersion.

and having a back story will help immersion a lot.

i agree, the new one is not immersive at all. The old intro made people feel sorry for the Matar, or jealous of the gallente, or entranced by the power of the amarr. But all the new intro does is say. Wellcome to eve, lots of other people play this game so its going to be hard for you, hope youve got some balls.

The old intry would be better i feel.

Didn't think the old intro was extremely good. But the generic, chest-beating new one with demigods and other overblown nonsense is so bad I'd settle for a mediocre one any time.

I like the new intro. It has spunk. And the new New Player Experience is somewhat more story-immersive than before (taking you on a walking - er, warping - tour of the galaxy) to compensate.

The old intro, while very cool, set up false expectations, I think - the new intro better primes new players for the real deal they're about to get.

That said, I'm a sucker for good plot and would love to see the backstory better integrated, especially for beginners.

I quite like the new one. But I didn't have the same excitement while watching it as the old one :3

I like the new one, but I miss the back story. It really gave a sense of the immense ammount of time that has passed between now and Eve.

i liked the old one better.

i approve of the notion of having the old one play at startup, and the new one play when you make a new char.

\o/ for the new intro.

"When you can lead, there's nowhere you can't go" is just the notion I feel when I play eve; made me shiver when I heard it first time.

BUT

\o/ for the old intro.

Old intro was great, I was dramatic, had a story and it 'dragged' you into the game. The new one just boosts your ego, while having no real value for the game Cool

Agreed bring the old one back. If for some reason you cant bring it back, then please make it available as a download so i can watch it every once in a while. Wink

I'm a fan of the new starting movie just because it gives people an idea of what type of game EVE is. It specifically says that other people will attempt to **** you over in whatever you attempt to do. It's like the game's saying "This isn't WOWINSPACE" without having to have the forum community scream it at them.

but the new one plays when someone creates a charecter.

The old one just becomes the new intro.

So everyone will see the old and new intro eventually.

Agreed.

But it is better to say "This game is awesome, but not easy" than to just say "This game is not easy"
