ISKILLS? -- OMG their soooo complicated. Dump all the current skills and give re-allocatable skillpoints. Re-name all the skills with an easier system to understand. something like this perhaps:


COMBAT I
COMBAT II
COMBAT III
COMBAT IV
COMBAT V

CAREBEAR I
CAREBEAR II
CAREBEAR III
CAREBEAR IV

Hey I like that idea! There are too many skill in this game and why the hell do I need some third party app to plan everything. I 1+ this suggestion

Masterful.

I'm in two minds about the way EVE seems to be going. On the one hand, I do have some faith in CCP, on the other hand, the trend is a wee bit worrying.

But it's nice to have the point put in a funny way, rather than just sheer longfaced whining.

I laughed, timing is everything!

I'm a little saddened by some of the responses tho, I used to like to think the bulk of the player base was smarter than that!
Hopefully a certain 'type' of player is over-represented here.

Ladies and Gentlemen...

I'm a time traveller from 2021 who has returned to stop Blizzard from implementing their latest nerf to the online game that is World of Warcraft. For those of you not in the know, it has become an online game similar to Diablo where a single character controls a virtual army of NPC helpers allowing solo play in dungeon instances and raids. Gone are the days of the Massively Multiplayer game.

However I fear the OP may also be a time traveller from my time period because his version of Eve Online is scarily accurate.

Please, I beg of you, insist that such 'emergent gameplay' changes not be allowed to take root in Eve. Now, while you still have a chance. In 2014 of my time CCP and Eve Online were both purchased by Activision and retooled to become more like WoW, but in space.

Know this, when the Jove race becomes playable and looks eerily like trolls.... you've waited too long.

EVE isn't too hard, I'd rather say it's too slow and time consuming.

I applaud CCP's recent trend of making eve easier to play, and to that point I have a few suggestions on how they can expand on their current path of making eve more friendly for the masses.

CAREBEARING is far too complicated. Instead of veldspar, scordite, etc.. we should just have 3 flavors of roids and minerals... hi sec ore, low sec ore, and null sec ore. have each type of ore refine to just 1 type of corresponding mineral. make ammo from hi sec minerals, weapons from low sec, and ships from null sec minerals. The current manufacturing system is OBVIOUSLY too complex and must be made "more fun" for new players. Blueprints should be free of course, after all people would just make copies and put them up on the intarweb for their friends to download anyways. This removes the need for BPC's of course, as well. totally unrealistic gameplay here guys. --- you know, kinda like the SCHEMATICS for PI... virtually(totally?) free and automatically there! went over well right? go with it!

Also get rid of all the transport/hauler ships, and just put teleporters in stations. Noone wants to get their goodies blown up! that's not fun! let people safely teleport their stuff wherever they want! Make it free because having stuff where you want it is good, makes the game more fun! plus less transport ships = less gate camping and we want more 2000 ship fleet battles, anything less is simply not worthy of pvp in eve.

COMBAT should change as well. fitting ships is just fundamentally too hard. new players are often flying about in poorly fitted ships, which results in losses which taints their initial opinion of eve. To simplify this remove mid slots and low slots from the game, replace MWD's and AB's with a hardwired TURBO BOOST that comes on every ship. Also, get rid of shields, armor, and hull, and just give each ship HITPOINTS, and give each ship an automatic rate of REGENERATION for those hitpoints. EWAR? blech, scramming just forces people to fight when they don't want to, and jamming simply ruins someones day. get rid of those too... Drones? dump those, it's just not fair that some ships have vulnerable dps and others don't......and because that would help lag...just like when you dumped mines.

SKILLS? -- OMG their soooo complicated. Dump all the current skills and give re-allocatable skillpoints. Re-name all the skills with an easier system to understand. something like this perhaps:


COMBAT I
COMBAT II
COMBAT III
COMBAT IV
COMBAT V

CAREBEAR I
CAREBEAR II
CAREBEAR III
CAREBEAR IV
CAREBEAR V

then once those skills are all maxed, let folks sell their leftover skillpoints to npc stations for a nice passive isk income once they've MASTERED eve. Make it so that all the skills can be trained fully in about 4 weeks. No more than 6 weeks for the love of all that's holy.


Just think how fun eve would be if you never died unless you wanted to and only fought when you wanted to, and always had good stuff on hand, for cheap, and you could fit a ship in seconds without having to learn a darn thing! so many more people would play, and you'd make much more money irl ccp.

I know you're already on the path, and I should just be patient, but I just get so excited thinking about the future, it's hard for me to wait for all these glorious changes to be implemented. gogo CCP, keep on truckin!


GET. THE. ****. OUT. !

Obviously OP is trying to be funny and get responses to pleasure himself while waiting for the patch to drop. I did laugh a bit while reading his post. On the other hand he is making a point. Yes they are changing a few things. Yeah some skills are being removed but people are really jumping to some serious conculsions lately. It reminds me of a dude who walks outside and feels a raindrop hit his forehead. He promptly freaks out and yells at the top of his lungs "RUN! TSUNAMI!!!"

Its not conclusions lately. Its been building for some time, specifically in this area and aspect of the game. Please recall learning skill removal.
