When I first heard about this expansion I thought wow, they are finally going to let us out of our capsules to settle planets and wage war on
Now it's here and I don't see the big deal. It's just making a POS out of a planet and we are still confined to space combat, still confined to our capsules, still confined. They show us big animations that imply that it's going to be different gameplay with lots of new stuff and new demensions of play, but all they did was add a few items and skills and a new camera view of a planet...big deal. A far cry from the epic adventure promised by CCP and just another big letdown from Iceland. What's the next big expansion? To be able to harvest helium and hydrogen from suns if we train more skills and buy special ships to withstand the heat? You could call it Hellion. Come on. Make something fun allready.

lol yeah im of a similar opinion.

pi is nothing more than pos logistics of old replaced by planet logisitics added with more spreadsheets.

one would begin to think microsoft excel dev team OWN shares of ccp.

i was losing interest in eve before the patch but now im struggling to keep interested.

total disappointment for me.

now t1 ships will increase in price and wont be worth insuring much like t2 ships STILL are. roaming gang pvp (which most of us like to do will become too expensive to do often) and only the ms excel fans will enjoy this

Strategic features is more prefered than graphic for me. So population and schematic squads is more desired than somewhere walking IMHO.

CCP never said we were getting out of our pods yet, simply theyre releasing more control of the market to the players by letting us creat things that were simply seeded before, and letting us play a small version of sim city.

Incarna is maybe going to be the winter patch if its finished in time and Dust follows some time after that probly. PI is simply setting the stage for it to happen.

Remember, if you got your hopes up without reading the dev blogs and patch notes, no cookie for you!

been gone for half or properly a year now, comming back to check the expansion and finding that nothing have changed really, all the same and still no new interesting content :( total letdown, would have thought they had done something new by now, left bc nothing new was happening and still nothing :/

I'm forced to agree. The patch is not as exciting as I thought it would be, they made it sound really intresting in fanfest and in the blogs. I hope a new patch will come out soon. Something that makes the players of eve speechless. But CCP cant do that without ideas from the players. So rather then tell them the patch isnt fun, give them ideas on what to do.

I for one want something to do out of my pod. I know it would be classed as a totally dofferent game by itself, hense dust-514 but id like to be able to actually land our spaceships on planets and be able to be planetary vehicals that we can then pew pew with or mine, harvest ect.

Combat on land but using land based vehicals. That would bring another 50 or more skills to the list, a BIGGER world for the players. New enviroments, more market items. And a totally different aspect to pvp. I sincerly hope that eve for the PC will not always be limited to space. I would contact the DEV team directly and write a 100 page idea if I thought it would even be read. Lets hope they read this thread huh.

I thought that they made the information pretty clear. I knew after watching the fanfest videos, and the trailers that we are not getting out of the pods until Incarna. Nice thing about PI for my corp is that we are going to be able to produce a lot of the fuel that we currently spend a lot of ISK on, which makes this pretty nice for those of us with POS's.

I thought we got exactly what they said we were getting, and as disappointing as you might find it, they gave us exactly what they said we were getting. Read the patch notes
