Seems like a lot of you guys have been around EVE for a long time.  As a new player, I have no idea what's going on.  So what's the status of EVE right now?  Is it dying? Do you guys still have fun playing?  Is it way passed it's glory days?  Is there still a future for it?

The game has been around for 10 years, and it's had about the current amount of subscriptions, since the beginning.  You can check eve-offline.net for graphs of how the player base varied over the years (the graphs show currently logged-on players, but multiply by 5x and you should get a rough estimate of subscribed players).

The devs have fucked up a few times in the past, and have delayed any sort of expansion for 18 months at one time.  They've focused on their other games and mostly ignored EVE before.  The game was set up from the start to require minimal work from the devs (they created a bunch of solar systems, a bunch of ships, a bunch of gear, and then left the players to their own devices, mostly - they don't have to create "content" like other MMO's where very expansion has to bring in a continuation of the lore, new higher level raid and PVP zones to experience, etc etc).

So, keeping that in mind, the last thing they did before their (nice) summer vacation was to rebalance a whole bunch of the ships and some of the combat mechanics to where they're arguably better now.  Then they stopped for vacation and are now coming back from it, but plans for the "winter expansion" haven't really been announced, and we don't know what they plan as far as releasing something to keep the interest going.

They've been focusing on their Dust514 game for the past year or so, and now that it's released and looking like it's going to flop, we're interested to see if the devs renew their efforts with EVE, with Dust, with other games, or what.

However, EVE gameplay fun depends A LOT on what the players are doing, namely if there are major alliance wars in 0.0 space, Hulkaggeddon or other initiatives in high-sec space, and general wars going on between your buddies and other people.  This is pretty much independent of the devs, really, so if you manage to find a good corp or group to do pvp with, it doesn't matter what the devs do or have done.

EDIT:  Also, as a new player, you'll be busy with figuring out the game and training your skills and figuring out PVP and making friends, and EVE is a slow paced game compared to other MMOs.  Just figuring everything out will probably provide enough entertainment and gameplay for a few months at the very least.  By which time they'll probably announce their expansions and patches and short/long term plans for the game.

Query: Would bringing Dust514 to other consoles and/or the PC help make it better, or is the problem deeper than an exclusive contract?

The problem is larger.  CCP turned off further development of EVE in favor of a console shooter.  Even that does not cover the issues.  They have nearly a googel sized laundry list of announced projects, promises and broken features that were announced.  These are the people who would admit to running server 'experiments' on your live fights and tell you to go fuck yourself when you complained about outside influence.  These are the people who would spawn ships and loot for friends, use dev assets to spy on enemies and give benefits (like stations, asset moving, region enhancement leaks) to the favored.  They leave bugs in place as features until someone does it to them.  It is like watching a drunk stagger around a cymbal shop.

Besides the "it's CCP, what do you expect" issue, in my opinion Dust 514 is also an FPS with character and gear progression (the EVE kind) tacked on, that is trying to focus on these "features" to compete in a genre that is very full of really good and fun FPS games that focus on first person shooting.

Pezzle, it's not 2007 anymore. Let it go, man.

Eve is doing fine, still making money and holding up Iceland's economy while still being a subscription based MMO, partly thanks to other spaceship MMOs not understanding what makes Eve click and failing miserably, partly thanks to CCP being good at bullshitting everyone into believing the best thing since seat warmers is right around the corner. Then when the expansion hits you get a seat warmer, but it only works for one seat and only one buttcheek. I think for the most part Eve is great thanks to the people who make it an interesting game to be a part of, because there are real communities, subcultures and ideologies in Eve that have near unrestricted means of expressing all that in many "political" ways. Also, and primarily maybe, there really is nothing like it. A lot of Eve happens outside the gameclient, on forums, chatrooms, VoiP servers and third party software.

If you ask whether Eve is a complex game, then it really depends on how well you can grasp all the aspects that are holistically interconnected with each other. If you just know about missions and all you seem to do is missions for the sole purpose of getting better gear so you could do even more missions, then that will be the game for you. But if you decide to try and influence the market for your own personal gain or the people playing it can come out with really unique outcomes, for better or for worse, with no real limits. You can be the guy who destroys some other random guys 10 years of effort pretending to be a spaceship captain. Happens more often than you might imagine. All sorts of people have made use of their professional skills to gain an advantage in the game, e.g. programmers, artists, accountants, webdesigners, private investigators, crooks, etc.

I've had people in real life telling me how they don't get Eve, or how they don't get why their co-workers play it. At the same time though it's easier for me to talk to people who do play Eve, because a lot of likeminded individuals coalesce in the game due to all the different social dynamics involved.

Is Eve a good spaceship simulator? No. Fuck no. So many things are completely different from what you'd expect it just takes straightforward learning to understand how things work and why. If Neil deGrasse Tyson saw Eve he would flip his desk and bite down angrily on his solarsystem themed tie. We call Eve "submarines in space", but even that isn't doing Isaac Newton any justice, since it's more akin to "submarines in oil", oh and the submarines are dickheads.

For the most part, in the beginning, the game is just a grind like any other MMORPG: run missions, wait for your skill points to go up, then get involved in PvP.  The big difference, it seems, is that if you get blown up, you can't just go to your corpse and resurrect.  

I don't know.  We'll see how it goes.  So far I find myself too busy with real world stuff to invest a lot of time into it.

RISE!!!

The various enemies in EVE have put out a joint statement. This pretty much qualifies as news I guess. I only found out as I was looking at Mittani-s site for something else...

http://themittani.com/news/null-deal-statement-sovereign-00



Quote
(Editor's Note: In the history of Eve Online, there has never once been a joint statement agreed upon by the leadership of sovereign nullsec. These entities who have signed this document are historically the most bitter of foes, and between them control more than 90% of conquerable space in the game.)
The Null Deal: A Statement from Sovereign 0.0

We, the undersigned alliance leaders of conquerable nullsec, are deeply concerned by the risk of another Dominion-style expansion making the existing mechanics of sovereignty even worse than they are today. We have put aside our many differences and brutal rivalries to advocate for the following three touchstones of a prospective sovereignty revamp. We hope that announcing the following united proclamation gives game developers at CCP the freedom they need to make the following drastic yet necessary changes.

Occupancy-Based Sovereignty
We believe that ownership of territory should be reflected by alliance occupancy. Players should live in and utilize their space, and player infrastructure and activity should be reflected in an occupancy index. We believe this will significantly shrink the footprints of the current absentee empires, free up large sections of sov 0.0 for smaller entities, and remove the current need for vast coalitions.
 
NPC 0.0 in Every Sov Region
We believe that regions which contain several unconquerable NPC systems and stations generate platforms for small-scale PVP content and launching points for smaller alliances. We believe that Fountain provides superior gameplay for both sovholders and guerillas than Omist. We wish to see small footprints of NPC 0.0 seeded in every conquerable region which lacks them, from Tenal to Omist.
 

(This map illustrates the inaccessibility of sov 0.0 from subcapital insurgent forces due to lack of NPC stations)

 
Increased Player Density
We believe that vast swathes of conquerable nullsec are essentially worthless to our line members and can only support the activity of a handful of players in each system. We would like to see the value of individual systems increased to support a dense ecosystem of players undocked and interacting within single system.

Well they announced changes to capital jump range, and maybe in 6 months we might see some nullsec changes to allow players to live in systems in large numbers. I'm not hopeful it will happen, or make coming back worthwhile.

Patch Notes
Patch Notes For Rhea
2014-12-05 17:53

Patch notes for Rhea 1.0
Release on Tuesday December 9, 2014

 
FEATURES & CHANGES :

Audio:         

    New Rhea theme song at start up
    Sound environment for a cloaked structure
    Sound environments for Thera: System Entry, Station exterior, Hangar, Shattered Planets
    Sounds for Confessor animations (the new Amarr destroyer)
    Sounds for new sleeper scout drone and Bowhead
    Sounds for new 3D map
    Support for multiple sound emitters for a single sound

Balancing:

    The fee for changing your home station has been raised to 100.000 ISK (from 5.600 ISK)

Corps and Alliances:

    A character with the Personnel Management role in a player corp can now invite players directly to the corporation, without the recruit having to put in an application himself. Invites may be sent by using the "Send Corporation Invitation" option when right-clicking on a character name/portrait.

    Standard application flow (this process is unchanged):
    1) Recruit applies to corporation
    2) Personnel Manager accepts the application and sends an offer to the recruit
    3) Recruit accepts the offer and becomes a member of the corporation

    New invitation flow (effectively skips step 1 above):
    1) Personnel Manager sends an invitation to the recruit
    2) Recruit accepts the invitation and becomes a member of the corporation

    A recruit can only have a single in-progress application/invitation with a particular corp at any time.
    Both parties are notified via the notification system when an application is created/updated. These notifications may be configured or suppressed like any other.
    The rate at which a character can send out invites is throttled to prevent excessive spam.
    Changes to the mechanics about when a character may join/leave a corporation:
    A character can create a new application to join a corporation from anywhere. (Previously could applications could only be submitted whilst docked in a station)
    A character cannot choose to leave a corporation unless he is either docked or in a capsule. (Previously he quit from a corp at any time)
    A character cannot accept a completed corporation invitation unless he is docked or in a capsule. (Previously he could accept a completed invite at any time)
    Note that changing corporations will continue to trigger a 10 second session-change timer

Exploration:

    Scanners are now detecting Unidentified Sites throughout New Eden; we have nothing on record about the contents within
    The Standard Sleeper Cache is now waiting to be explored in New Eden.
    A distance indicator has been added in to the hacking mechanic which displays how many nodes you are away from something beneficial

Gameplay:

    One hundred and one new wormhole systems can now be accessed by players. These systems were recently shattered by a mysterious event. Among these new systems is the unique hub system of Thera. All the details about Thera and the Shattered Wormhole Systems can be found in this Dev Blog.
    Users now have the option to opt into keyboard controls for their ship. This feature is currently in beta and disabled by default.
    In order to opt in; assign keyboard shortcuts to the actions "direction down", "direction left", "direction right", "direction up" in the ESC menu, via the "Navigation" tab under "Shortcuts"
    The skill point loss incurred on clone death has been removed (exception being T3 cruiser death penalty) along with the requirement to keep your clone up to date with a relevant clone grade
    The default clone that you are issued after death is free and sufficient to protect your skills on death
    You no longer have the option of purchasing higher clone grades
    Consequently the clone upgrade discount for upgraded Factional Warfare systems has been removed
    Assembled ships in a Ship Maintenance Bay will now appear in the wreck if the container ship is destroyed (following the normal loot dropped/destroyed probability). These surviving ships can then be manually ejected in to space to be piloted away.

Graphics:

    Redesigned hulls for the Onyx, Eagle, Incursus, Enyo, Ishkur, Blackbird, Rook and Falcon.
    New Guristas, Sansha and Blood Raiders pirate apparel sets.
    New Christmas jacket variant.
    First pass of Physical Based Rendering for all ships (except T3 cruisers) and turrets/launchers.

    Dragging items over the sell window will now show enhanced visual feedback.

    The base optimal range of all Pulse Lasers has been increased by 5%.
    The falloff range of all Pulse Lasers has been increased.
    Small Focused Pulses, Heavy Pulses, Mega Pulses: +25%
    Dual Light Pulses, Focused Medium Pulses, Dual Heavy Pulses: +33.3%
    Gatling Pulses, Giga Pulses: +100%
    The optimal range bonus provided by Scorch ammo has been reduced from 50% to 40%.
    Small Beam Lasers have been rebalanced:
    +50% Damage Multiplier
    -20% Rate of Fire
    +25% Capacitor Need
    -10% Tracking
    +10% Optimal Range
    Decreased Falloff: -33.3% for Dual Light Beams, -37.5% for Small Focused Beams
    ~17% decrease in CPU use for Dual Light Beams, ~5% decrease in CPU use for Small Focused Beams

Missions & NPCs:

Several Supercarriers and Titans killed in the last few days, and the big groups have withdrawn a bit. I...ordered the collectors edition. For the USB Rifter. But I keep reading r/Eve and the SA thread. The removing of clone death costs has almost made me pull the trigger.

Since you can pay to have two characters training on the same account for the same cost as having two subs, I consolidated my characters to a single account. Of course, that costs you for each character transfer and you have to have active subs on both accounts.. probably not worth it, but now I don't have to manage two logins.

Eve is certainly designed for 2 accounts at the moment. However I am too poor in RL to justify the cost, really. I certainly felt the loss of it when I was playing. for example, if you have something like a carrier or a jump freighter you really NEED a personal cyno alt to get you from A to B. And there are those "TOTAL PVP FIGHTERS AND TOTALLY NOT CAREBEARS  that actually make their money trucking shit all over eve all day or running missions or *horrors* MINING!!!

And frankly you cant really sample everyhing in eve as one account without a really old character.

Coming to EVE Online in the Proteus Release on January 13th and a Status Update on Sovereignty
2014-12-19 16:15
By CCP Seagull
| Comments

Even as most of the EVE Online team is preparing for the holidays, we are still working our with limited bandwidth to get you a few things in our January release. Here’s an outline of the features coming to EVE Online in the Proteus release and an update on where we are with our work on changes to sovereignty game play and 0.0 security space.

The events unfolding in the New Eden universe will continue, and we will also continue with not telling you explicitly about everything that is going to happen. So keep paying attention to in-game news, features and events if you want to follow, discover and have an impact on the next steps on our road towards big changes to the EVE universe in 2015.

Here are the features in Proteus:

This is my "are you fucking retarded" part

Quote
Combat Recon Ships Undetectable by Directional Scanning

Combat recon ships will be impossible to detect with directional scans and bonuses and attributes will be looked over for all 8 Force and Combat Recon ships. For more details and to provide feedback, take a look at this thread: Recon Ships

Yep, I cant see anything bad happening with that, can you? Jumping in 1 guy in a mission to be met by 30 odd curses will be the shit. And lets not talk about wormholes...

Quote
Redesigned Exequror Hull

Hull variants for the Oneiros and Navy Issue will follow in coming releases. If you want some ideas for what to do with an Exequror, we can recommend this solo PvP video featuring Jim Jams. 

new hull looks good.

10 Module Groups Rebalanced

In a substantial package of balance changes that are part of the "Module Tiericide" project, the following modules groups will see changes: Capacitor Rechargers, Capacitor Power Relays, Power Diagnostics Units, Mining Lasers, Mining Laser Upgrades, Expanded Cargoholds, Nanofiber Internal Structures, Reinforced Bulkheads, Inertial Stabilizers and Overdrive Injectors. Threads for feedback will be posted in the Features & Ideas forum.

New Visual Effects in Asteroid Belts

Originally scheduled for Rhea, new dust effects, light rays, and rock fragments will be added to asteroid belts in Proteus to create a more immersive experience.

The macrominers will appreciate it

Quote
New Features for the Beta Starmap

The new star map released as an opt-in feature in Rhea will see several updates. Additions likely to make it into the Proteus release are things like a standalone system view, probe scanning support, directional scanning cone visualized in the system view and mouse-over information on stars, planets and moons.

Small Scale Mining Anomalies in Starting Systems

To make sure there are enough mining opportunities in starter and career agent systems, Proteus will bring a new kind of small scale ore anomalies suitable for young capsuleers.

Teams Retiring

In Proteus, we will retire the Teams feature that is currently part of Industry. Read more about this change and the reasons behind it in this dev blog: Industry & Teams - The Removal of Teams.

A New Voice for Aura in German and Russian

A few recordings for Aura were missing from the German and Russian clients, so we decided to redo all of them. For Russian Aura we have used a voice actress, but for the German version several players suggested we contact EVE player Naburi NasNaburi, a popular pirate amongst German-speaking capsuleers. She is well known for her parody songs "EVE. Oh EVE" and "My guns were made for shooting" and is the co-host of DJ Raserball on EVE-Radio. She agreed to record the new version of Aura's lines in German, and with Proteus, this will be the new voice of Aura for clients with German as the language setting.

The Proteus Theme

Proteus comes with more music from EVE composer CCP RealX. In fact it’s already available right here. The EVE Online SoundCloud page also has dozens of release themes, EVE trailer music, sound effects, CCP dev rap music, and the rest of EVE’s soundtrack. All free to stream and download.

 
A few more things may make it into the release, keep an eye out for the Patch Notes in January for the full set of changes. Events will also continue to unfold in New Eden, so do pay attention to game news and events.

For those of you waiting for the Minmatar Tactical Destroyer, I can report that Honorary Fleet Architect Lotrec Emetin is seeing the last details come into place and the ship is scheduled for the Tiamat release on February 17th.

A Status Update on our Work on Sovereignty Gameplay

In the blog about the long distance travel changes in Phoebe, we outlined 3 phases of work on addressing gameplay in 0.0 security space in New Eden. Phase One was the travel changes, and we have now started work on Phase Two - a set of changes to sovereignty mechanics and related features and systems. Two teams are working on this full time, combining changes to structure gameplay, corporations and alliances and the sovereignty mechanics themselves in order to make impactful changes to EVE that improve gameplay and quality of life. Three things are in motion relating to this where we are seeking your input:

    We are doing design work on sovereignty mechanics, and we are preparing to present concrete designs to the CSM at the CSM Winter Summit on January 20-23rd. Meeting minutes and dev blogs will follow to let the full community participate in discussing the proposed changes.
    We are doing design work and preparing for big changes to structures overall in EVE--including structures involved in sovereignty mechanics. As input into that work, we are running a survey on structure related gameplay in EVE, including a number of questions around sovereignty structures and gameplay. Please give your thoughts and perspective by participating here: http://structures.questionpro.com
    We are taking requests for big and small improvements to the corporation and alliance interface and we will be releasing features continuously in 2015, along with deeper changes such as intra-corporation aggression changes and extended alliance-based functionality such as bookmarks. Please post your interface suggestions in this thread: We want your corp little things!

We will evolve these key systems with the ambition of strengthening the unique sandbox gameplay in EVE, making territorial warfare available to both big and small groups, creating more meaningful objectives and gameplay connected to it, and offering quality of life changes to anyone operating in EVE connected to this gameplay. You can also expect the unfolding events in New Eden to make a difference for all areas of the universe.

Improving this part of EVE is at the heart of our plans for 2015. We will not just release a single set of changes, but continuously work with these systems all throughout the year and take the time needed to make things work well to provide good times and good fights.

We are very excited about this endeavor, and I hope you will be too once you get to see more of the actual plans early next year.
Thank You and See You in 2015

With that, I'd like to thank you all for being part of EVE Online in 2014 and I wish you all happy holidays full of good EVE and out-of-EVE times. We hope to have all of you with us for a very exciting EVE 2015.

At bloody last they re-balance the Pilgrim. Recons definitely needed some love so I'm happy about that. Thought they might have added in the 'on demand' to this release too.

I'm going to escape, come back, wipe this place off the face of the Earth, obliterate it and you with it.

There was a link to the proposed recon rebalance. Pilgrim will get a range bonus to nos/neut which was something I and a lot of others said before would be the way to make it more viable.

Nice link. Yeah I kind of agree with a lot of the changes, but giving Recons HAC resists and all the other stuff pretty much makes HACs totally useless. And combat Recons with the D-scan immunity AND hac resists AND the improvements? They are out of their goddam minds.

Just finished reading everything that was posted over night. Here's what I can update with at the moment:

Quote
Biggest concern at the moment is the added EHP. Making recons a more realistic fleet option next to T3 cruisers is good, making them too tanky in smaller situations where their ewar already gives them a lot of damage evasion may be too much. Not sure if change is needed but will keep looking at this and update again asap.

Dscan immunity is staying. We understand a lot of the concerns raised, but for most of them you guys are doing a great job making strong counter-arguments and I think it will be very interesting to see how this mechanic plays out on TQ. I want to put together a lengthier post soon with more explanation for this mechanic and why we feel comfortable with it, but you will have to wait a bit longer for that.

The Pilgrim. Opinions seem mixed, gaining neut range is obviously nice but many of you still feel that giving up neut strength is too harsh, or that some other added power is needed (more damage for instance). Will get back to you on this as soon as possible but it's possible that we will make adjustments.

RLML for Rook. Sure. Consider it done.

More low slots for Lachesis. Not sure yet on this one, will talk it over here and see what we can do.

Hope that answers some questions. I'm sure many of you would rather have more explanation for the dscan immunity change so I'll try to get that post together as soon as I can.

Thanks for all the feedback.

I can tell you what will happen most likely:
- Less fights because people are risk averse
- A 2nd account with a Prober at all times will be must, not an option.


I think this is a complex debate and I'm sure that none of us understand player behavior completely, but my experience is actually the opposite of what you're saying.

Yes, people are risk averse, they want to make good decisions when they're taking risks and that often leads being conservative. That's exactly why I like this kind of mechanic. People want to do the fun thing and take more engagements, but when they have enough information to know that they aren't the favorite they shy away from fighting. However, when some information is obscured they become optimistic and take more risks. I've seen players so willing to make decisions that are likely too risky simply because they lack perfect information. Jumping into gate camps where positional information isn't guaranteed, engaging on stations with people docked, fighting in systems with more in local than can be accounted for, etc. These mechanics that obscure information give people the excuses needed to take risks. Take the example given somewhere in this thread of a low sec camp with 2 Vexors and 2 Rooks. Before these changes, the gang considering fighting them never would because they know they can't deal with the Rooks. After, they won't see them and so they will probably engage. That's more fights because people are risk averse.

The negative side for me is your other bullet point. Because people don't want to take unnecessary risk they will work very hard, sometimes doing something very boring or difficult, just to get at those last pieces of information. And they should. But we would want to avoid mechanics that obligate people to this kind of behavior too heavily without enough positive side to make the mechanic worthwhile.

I would be more worried with this mechanic that people have to spend a lot of time running probe scans when they really don't want to be than that they are avoiding engagements because of the possibility of Recons. I don't think this will be a problem but we'll have to wait and see.

So people will blindly charge into fights they cant win because you have made sure they have wrong information and they are not so risk adverse. Wow Rise, you the man.

As people in that thread keep saying, this will kill faction warfare stone dead as people wont be able to run the complexes you need to do FW.

I can see myself still doing WH exploration but one or 2 ganks I cant tell there there is someone out there and I'm uninstalling. Thankfully a LOT of WHs I find are basically uninhabited, and its fairly easy to spot when they might have people in them.

At the risk of sounding obtuse, how's this different from people lurking in cloaked ships?  People have been ambushing other people in Pilgrims since forever, this just extends a similar functionality to combat recons without giving them an actual cloak.

Reply #27 on: December 19, 2014, 11:03:28 PM

Firstly you have to position yourself carefully if you want to cloak yourself as anything coming too close will decloak you, even another cloaked ship. Secondly force recons are by design a hell of a lot weaker than Combat Recons. Thirdly they have just gotten the resistances of a HAC so they are a HELL of a lot tougher, as well as all their lovely ECM bonuses. Fourth when you come out of cloak there is a 5 second delay before you can even begin to lock anything. Combat Recons wont have to worry about that, so they can literally drop out of warp and point you. Fifth you want to keep D-scanning the warp gate into a complex to see if there is anyone coming onto the complex to get you? Sorry no can do as Combat Recons can now use a gate to come into a complex and you wont have a clue till they come on grid with you. I'm pretty sure you have to decloak yourself to use a warp gate in a force recon so people can see you coming in id they keep hitting the Dscanner or have an ap which automatically keeps it scanning.

Now they WILL still show up on combat probe scans, but who the hell wants to drop 220 cpu from your ship for an expanded probe launcher to use them? PLUS in a wormhole its a good idea to pull your probes when you have locked something down as seeing probes on your scan is the no 1 signal that there is someone out there in a wormhole so they will start hunting you. For all you know they might have already bookmarked the signatures so they don't even have to warn you with probes of their own you to get to you.

Conversely Force recons will become the best ship to run anomalies with as no-one can tell you are in the anomaly without probes. Or you can gas mine in them without being detected!

There are a LOT of implications to this that CCP have not thought through, and I'm sure I haven't even thought of them all here.

New [Exequror] hull looks good.

New hull has 6 medium turrets shown on the surface of the model.  I'm pretty sure that's far beyond what the current Exequror can field.  Also, the "alignable warp propulsion engines" note seems to suggest this ship will have 0 warp align time, as it will just initiate warp backwards or sideways and just rotate its body after it warps away.

As an occasional lachesis pilot I fully agree that d-scan immunity for force recons is a bad idea.
Lacks foresight.

I would personally see a cloaked interdictor or a stealth bomber as a more dangerous proposition in wormholes, than combat recon with d-scan immunity, cloaking is pretty easy while orbiting a can [though it can be difficult if there are objects close by] while hacking it. Havn't found a cloaked interdictor in wormhole space yet however, sb's with their 0 cloaking locking delay are more dangerous to a cov ops pilot like myself [though if the sb's have torpedoes then they can be potentially dealt with].

Patch Notes For Proteus
2015-01-09 14:02

Patch notes for Proteus 1.0
Release on Tuesday January 13, 2015
FEATURES & CHANGES :

Audio:

    New theme song.
    New German and Russian voices for aura, including the voice of Naburi NasNaburi for our German translation!

Exploration:

    A new mining anomaly called "Asteroid Belt Remnants" can now be found in starter and career agent systems. This anomaly will be most attractive to newer players in small mining ships and will ensure that those systems do not run out of ore in times of high activity.

Graphics:

    Introduced new asteroid belt environments featuring non-minable rocks, field fog, and crepuscular rays.
    Created "Light Rays" and "Asteroid Environments" options: Display & Graphics options to activate or deactivate crepuscular rays or the new asteroid belt environments in space.
    Redesigned the Exequror and Oneiros models with updated geometry and warp animation.

Localization:

    Updated the client with new Aura voices for German and Russian.

Module Tiericide:

    Round 2 of the module rebalance plan has begun. See this dev blog for more details.
    Affected module groups have had a general balance pass for all modules in the group.
    Unneeded module types have been removed and existing modules of those types have been converted to a remaining module type.
    Several modules have been renamed in an effort to more easily communicate the type of advantage that particular variation offers.

The majority of that wall of text is detailed stats of each item that's modified.  Sir T could have reduced it to a few lines saying that they're changing Hull Upgrades modules by 5-20% and compressing the variety down to their stupid new naming schema ("scoped", "ample", etc.).  Oh, and Meta 0 items are suddenly Meta 6, same stats just called Meta 6.

The only significant change there is to Recons as far as I can see, but feel free to enlighten me.

I'm going to escape, come back, wipe this place off the face of the Earth, obliterate it and you with it.
