Awesome stuff coming out of CCP lately. Looking forward to all these changes, big and small. EVE keeps getting better and better.

Nice. Though interface boost instead of new content and functionality doesn't inspire me to reactivate 3 accounts after almost 3 years in the game without new content except for pitiful planetary interactions and stupid monocles.

@Pasha

So this is what? http://community.eveonline.com/en/crucible/features/

"Ratters and mission runners receive a wave of new DED content for Blood Raider, Sansha and Serpentis pirate factions. Over 50 sites have been added, bringing new challenges and an array of new high-end modules that are sure to please those lucky enough to procure them."

While its great that CCP is adding this in for mission runners, its hardly content when you look at the grand scope of the game.

If you consider new missions and such for the pirate factions, or any faction by that matter, to be "new content" for Eve online, you're view of the game is sadly narrow. These missions are essentially the equivalent of Blizzard saying "We added 50 achievements to WoW that you will have finished in about a week." Of course, deadspace loot is always nice, and the only reason people run these things anyways.

I play EVE and I know what I'm talking about. These are not missions, plexes are not the same thing as missions.

I run plexes often but never really did missions. They are completely diferent and adding 50 new sites is a very big thing, especially for those who are are completely bored of always doing the same content.

This is CCP applying the idea that players should be challenged by the game's intended challenges, not the UI.

Now, if just more developers realized this...

@DarkWalker : most other developers *do* realize it. CCP is finally catching up to them. Now if they'd just make something other than piracy (or working FOR pirates) worthwhile, they might have a game that could draw in more users than Lego World.

@psycros Have you played much of EVE? Piracy is very rarely worthwhile, by any traditional practical standard. They're an interesting facet, but they certainly don't drive the game by any stretch of the imagination.

Another positive step on the long road to recovering from Monoclegate.
