Been playing this on the test server, very nice changes. This is how CCP should move forward from now on, 75% eve, 25% walking in stations. Stations will be great when it is completely realised and the game is tied to Dust516, but space has to be fun to retain the player bases interest.

Despite the bitter vets, it seems folks on the Playstation 3 are keen to get their hands on Dust516 and that can only be a good thing - I just hope CCP get the FPS game feel fluid and up to scratch with modern shooters, if they can do that, they will have a real hit, as it offers something entirely new.

How much are the UI and game mechanics changing in this next patch? Enough to make less boring and more fun so you actually DO something while playing as opposed to clicking a button and reading a book while the game auto does whatever you told it to do?

@MMOaddict I doubt they're changing that severe. CCP doesn't want to change the game from what the players already love. If you don't like the mechanics as is, it's just not for you.

That's too bad. I love the atmosphere, setting, graphics, music, just can't stand the non action oriented feel of the ship flying and combat.

@MMOaddict IMO, I see EVE as an MMORTS when it comes to battles and such. Planning is alwasy what decides the actual outcome, and skill in the actual fights is basically playing distances and the few modules you can have equipped.

@Raikulxox Yeah, but it plays like a spreadsheet, drop down menus. Would it really be bad to give people a less drop down menu style of UI? It wouldn't have to replace the old one, but at least have the option between the two.

@Tezcatli CCP have stated in videos and interviews, that one day, they would like to make the UI and what you see, much more like the promotional video overlay graphics. It's just a big job, but it will get done eventually.

I'm not stupid enough to go into low sec zones, hence ANOTHER glaring issue with the game. Getting ganked by people like you while trying to mine/play the game.

Ooh, I got rated down. Eve fanbois are out in force today.

@MMOaddict

So the issue with the game is that it does not conform to your risk-aversive play style?

Being pussy sounds like more of a personal issue bro.

EVE is on the down since last expansion brought so many negative talking points. Can't see CCP work the positive talk back into the game in a long long time.

CCP improved the game a lot in the last few months. Even the bittervets aren't so bitter right now.

CCP really did the a good job in thi expansion.
I'm glad to see that "shooting the Jita and the Amarr monument" for two days worked.

So let me get this straight... we are getting all, the T3s BCs, the new Nebulae, the new DEDs and the other stuff on Nov 29?

@Dirame Don't forget the ship station spinning counter. Best feature ever.

CCP have stated they will also release point releases for stuff they couldn't quite squeeze in to this release, such as the changes to Assault Frigates, so you won't have to wait for little things like that until the next expansion either.
