CCP gave you nearly 6 months notice this was going to happen.


Several times they iterated download our sm3 checker to make sure you can run eve. Now the day is here and you can't run eve because you all failed to read the dev blogs or assumed your cards could do it.

I would ask you for your stuff but you can't log into eve.

BTW 6 months is more than enough time to save up money to get a newer video card.

It was more than 6months. CCP said they were going to drop it at the announcement they were going to drop Shader Model 1.

I honestly cant believe how shocked people sound tht their 5+ old notebook can't play something that has been released to be current. If you can't afford the PC to play PC games, i hear footballs are only about 10 bucks, and nature is free :-)

My computer is 5+ years old, actually more like 6 now, and it runs everything fine.

Some people just have no clue how to upgrade, or more importantly i think in this case....CLEAN....their computers.

So they dont want to take the blame and they just want to blame the higher power. lol.

How about instead of making their game even more unplayable - barring stupid feature changes - and adding bull**** macro-transactions, they make a smart business move and make the game LESS system intense so MORE people can play?

I don't understand the logic of some people.

You either save money by not upgrading your system but don't play EVE...

Or you either upgrade your system, loose money, but play EVE.

There is no in between. You would think that as EVE players people would know that there are tradeoffs to every option. You chose not to spend money, so you don't play EVE, simple.

Not sure how many people bother to read dev blogs. If most don't read the forums, I bet even more read the blogs. SiSi isn't an appropriate response either. Professional companies pay people to test ****, so why should a customer log onto sisi for anything other than their own amusement?

Sorry, no appropriate notice was given.

Probably because successful and smart game companies make their games as playable as possible to as many pc settings as possible? The more computers that can handle a game the more likely people are going to be to try a game out if they've heard good things about it. In this economy just because you're lucky enough to have a decent PC doesn't mean everyone else should spit out the required cash to play the next best game that comes out.

The fact that Blizzard can make their game playable to millions of people - who probably don't all have top notch pc's - speaks well to their understanding of this simple concept of making the game accessible to more people. With all the other stupid crap CCP does the least they could do is make this game less system intense and still have it be a great game.

What I really don't understand is why CCP keeps increasing the system requirements for this old game when they must know it will stop some people from being able to play. Why would CCP want to shoot their profit margins in the foot by investing more money into hardware to make the game more intense and making it so fewer people can play?

It also appeared nearly for a month on your log in screen just above your account name and what not that said important news and dev blog SM2 being discontinued.

Big stuff like this ccp gave huge notice. I cant help it if people like you don't follow the game, or check for announcements or read the news feed by ccp to let you know what is going on. Being a dumbass is not and excuse on why you can rage.

It's not that the machines in question are 5+ years old. In a lot of cases far newer machines have appeared, which on the surface seem to tick all the boxes to play EVE on minimal settings along with everything else you want it to do. Then you remember it's built around an ancient i945 chipset (or worse an i915).

A lot of people may not realise just how old that chipset is (or indeed that it's using that chipset) but because it looks new, is being sold as new they assume it's all shiny and new.

Kind of like Vista + i915 = lulz from years back.

And yes, I think the i945 will pass the SM3 checker... even though strictly speaking it's software doing much of the lift n' shift.
