I'd love to see how people would react to warp to 15km these days or the old scan probe system.

If I were to venture a guess, I would say badly.

But they would be to busy looking for Meta Lvl Mining Lasers to help them get into their overpowered Rail Moa's...

Good Times.

I liked the old scan probe system, though the bookmarks were getting out of hand. Was pretty darn good at tracking down targets fast.

Don't tempt us....maybe not 2003, but end of 2004 (exodus?). Sure, anytime.

I still have all my gate to gate BMs!!!!!!!

I loved the old probing system. You actually had to work and make your scan spots. It required you to invest time into exploration unlike the current mechanics.

That's a good idea. Let them send all to the 2003 "Guantanamo EVE" for 3 months and they'll beg for having back the brilliant actual Incursion 1.6 made by "lazy fail programmers of an incompetent corp".

warp to 15?

probes??


we had nothing of the sort back in 2003.


if any, ship would randomly warp out between 20 and 60km from the gate, people would actually spawn in specific points that were not at the gates (JIP's), and the scorpion was a gunboat.

Didn't play then but I'd give it a go.. Only down side would be the gate humping station types would never have a reason to leave them.. Oh wai..

I guess being we have T3's & multiple rig sizes added with (remote)/sensor boosters out the yin yang, it's probably about the same as a 15km warp in. Yea you might not catch them on the warp in now days, but you can sure as hell catch them on the warp out, so quit whining.. (see what I did there)

Maybe the more things change the more they stay the same?

- you wouldn't have an overview; you'd have your scan window open. (and, you'd probably enjoy it better)
- pretty sure most of the gates have moved since they shrunk the systems and moved some stuff around, so a lot of the instawarp BMs wouldn't work.
- on that same note, you'd find a lot more systems larger than 32 AU... derp!
- you'd see a totally different map with a lot less entrances to 0.0 (more chokepoints).
- if you didn't mine the roids, they grow so big that you couldn't get within the miner laser range in order to mine them!
- we'd return to the glorious days when there weren't any lame cops around.
- you'd be amazed at the sounds of people dropping out of warp around stations, the sound of the stargates firing, and many more enjoyable auditory experiences.
- you'd have a chance to be a part of the (upcomming) T2 BPO Lottery!
- you'd be able to make ridiculous safespots for parking your ships.
- hopefully you wouldn't run missions because they really weren't profitable back then. *GASP* you'd actually do stuff in space!

back when my typhoon had 4 MWD in mids an a full rack of Power Diags in low, so you could reach faster than 1 au speeds by firing them all 4 in rapid succession. Took about 10 minutes to slow down enough to manuever again though after they kicked off :P

The best part was when you jumped you did not end up at the other gate you ended up in space. Camping 0.0 meant you go in and fight.

No cloak in the game you had a minute to decide what you wanted to do.

okay, i didn't play back then ...

... but by reading the stuff you guys listed ...

... I REALLY REGRET IT !

This sounds SO AWESOME !

I play EvE because it's (still) one of the hardest games out there.

It's my first and only MMO, because it's HARD.
Never cared about **** like WoW or Neverwinter Nights or whatever.

It's the FIRST and ONLY game that passed my "can i do what i want?"-test !

You have to learn stuff and understand what you're doing
and you got huge freedom of choice, not seen in any other game.

I'd LOVE all that stuff you'd listed !

Todays games are WAY too easy. There's no fun in that.

So ... just to let you know ... not everybody is as stupid and easy-gaming like most others.

CCP, bring back the hard times.
More money won't make you happier anyway !
You just get more problems ... and you can see that already ! :)
