Man, I'd totally forgotten the old interface. A good reminder of how far we've come, even if some of the changes I think have actually made it harder for new players.

also, during the vid, when you guys were shooting that Scorp on the gate, i noticed, alot of missiles seemed to be exploding BEFORE they hit the guy, is this from back when you had tactical environments?

For a while missiles would actually explode if they hit anything in their path. Made them a bit hard to use in fleets :). But that was too computation intensive for the servers so it was removed.

But what you saw in the video was not that but a long standing bug where the explosion just wasn't centered on the target. Took to like 2005-2006 before they fixed that one.

That brings back some good times. Back when a 2:1 fleet was still tough depending on the ships. Back when all missiles hit for the same amount of damage regardless of ship. Cruise missile kestrels, and torp caracals. I miss the old days.

And to those of you that say the old UI was better, its not! the old UI was horrible! You had to use it to realize how bad it was. I still have nightmares about it Sad

Hehe, those were the days, it really was good fun, cruise kessies were a laugh and because I was only starting in critical mass enterprises thats what I flew... ping pong stations were a flipping disaster though, and even though POS's were supposed to be the cure, they are worse than the disease ..

The thing is, before the term blob was coined and then subsequently overused, we called them fleets. And there's no stigma attached to being in a fleet.


The term blob is almost as old as Eve, I don't remember who coined it, but I am pretty certain it came around after only a few months, since I remember using the term as one in-joke to the old B-scifi flick and to belittle the enemy hinting they got the intelligence of a slimemold.

I remember when damage mods stacked without penalty. My first piracy days were spent with a tempest setup with 6x Gyrostabs and 1400 howies. Good times.

Anyone remember when gun tracking didn't exist and empire was lawless? Shocked Now THAT, was fun.

edit - OMG, dual mwd mallers. Anyone remember those? Very Happy

dual mwd cavalry ravens ftw and cruise kestrels tbh ... and when you could farm a Guristas Extravagazna mission for like 80-100m in bounties per run instead of like 20m in bounties today .. and when torpedos did full dmg to all ship types (frigs died really really really fast back in the day)

The round targetting icons and the font looked nice.

The old font was great. Though back when they changed it, it seemed CCP changed it with every patch. Font was easy to read too.

That circle icon was sorta nice. It didn't show the structure though. But back then it really didn't matter as you couldn't get hull resist. I prefer the bars now, much easier to read in a practical combat sense.

For a weekend they should put Eve release on Sisi, just to show people how crap it was, and how great we have it now.

Not to pee in the nostalgic cornflakes, but notice that despite umpteen hardware upgrades since then, the game then seemed to lag less then many equal sized fleet fights these days?

Drones are to blame IMO.

I can see myself in your overview!

We used to meet up with the SA every night in the same couple of systems and slug it out. Sounds a bit boring now but it was great at the time!

.. so I installed EVE from the CD (Yes, eve came on a CD once! AMAZING), and extracted the files from there ..


I smell EULA violation! Petition inc. Cool

But back on topic. "Good old times is result of bad memory and good imagination"

UI was ****ty, overview was totally useless and that targeting icon.. wtf man. I hated that UI since beta and still hate it with passion.

I remember when there were no sentry guns in empire and if you got shot at by a pirate ppl in local would come and help kill him.
Eve was full of carebears and very few pirates then.

Yeah, I was watching all the trailers the other day, and was a bit curious about how the old interface worked myself.

btw CCP can we please (pretty please with a pint on top?) get another trailer like Eve Never Fades? Sure it's almost four years old but it still kicks more ass than any of the super high resolution HD newer ones Laughing


I'd love to see Eve never fades remade with the new graphics.


Edit: and I want the old font back. I've always missed it, and I hate the current font with a vengeance.

FYI - LV used drones to lag the system along with 10 large bubbles. To a certain degree do I believe that drones are a problem. I'm not going to agree that they are the only issue.

Sense Kali patch EVE has gone backwards in my opinion!

Something is definitely missing from the game play other then lag and blobb warfare. To be honest I missed playing with the guys in B-VIP and the 7q Camps (Not todays 7Q). Roaming fleets we did with VOTF Xirtam. The nameless people I didn't even understand =/.

I think there has been attempts to bring some older members together and bring back that old time feeling (FAIL).

Not to get to off subject but the Trucker Spawns are not the same either. Anyone remember the ORE you would get from them?
