    Funny how that read as so blah.  In house they've been running it, but it is not really special enough to have been released at any point...

     

    ...sums up how many feel about it.

    I miss the MMORPG genre. Will a developer ever make one again?

    Stop down playing this man... You know you got a mental hard on reading that just like every other Eve fiend on this forum.

    It's ok you can admit it.

    This expansion has been 5 years in the making and it has 70 god damb devs. That's a bigger project than many entire games. Cryptic could make two crappy MMOs with those resources.



    It had better be fucking awesome. Or at the very least, as good (and big) as two crappy Cryptic MMOs.



    If all we get for 200+ dev-years is a fancy new character creator and a space-pub with space-pub games, while there's still a bug/issue/feature backlog a mile long, there will be hell to pay.

    Let history be a lesson.

    Whats happened whenever something gets overhyped in this genre?

    We know how CCP does things. It will be small at release and grow in stages.

    Lets just hope they don't forget about it shortly after release...

    With the amount of resources it's used, I cant see why it should need to be "small" at release. That's my point. I'm all in favour of "release it when it's ready", but with the huge amount of other things that those resources could have been used for, it had better be ready.

    That said, finally! I am kind of excited about seeing what this is going to be. This is CCP's chance to make a step change from being Just Another MMO Company to something on the next level. That level of ambition is what makes us forgive their erm... unusual way of doing things. EVE does often disappoint, but the things that we're disappointed in are glorious.

    Wow! I honestly didn't think Incarna would be coming out any time soon. It will be interesting to see what exactly the first additions will be and where they go from there.

    EVE... it's the MMO I can't stick with very long, but always keep me interested in its development and politics.

    Current: None
    Played: WoW, CoX, SWG, LotRO, EVE, AoC, VG, CO, Ryzom, DF, WAR
    Tried: Lineage2, Dofus, EQ2, CoS, FE, UO, Wurm, Wakfu
    Future: The Repopulation, ArcheAge, Black Desert, EQN

     yeah same here. i always thought to myself that EVE could be the greatest MMO ever made to date if they added avatars that could interact with the physical world appart from space. it seems from reading what i have about incarna....that incarna is the first step in that direction. it is really exciting to think of the possibilities. i do worry though that alot of people are missing that point and expect incarna to be some "epic" expansion to the game to give them another year or so of stuff to do. i dont think incarna is going to be as big and overwhelming as alot of people seem to think but rather a small , significant first step to something big.

    You can store them elsewhere.  We all know why you want the apartment...the bedroom...the bed...for those corpses!

    I've never been for ambulation in EVE.  It is one of the things I hated about Earth & Beyond, and it felt out of place in Auto Assault.

    Well CCP have been pretty definite about us not having to get out of our ships to do anything we can already do. So if you really dont like it you can just ignore it.

    If nothing else, you should be pleased that there is now a launch date, since the sooner it goes live, the sooner some of those devs can be released to other teams.

    Regarding the 70 devs, I wasn't aware they were throwing so much at this. But, does that 70 overlap the WoD development? Presumably, the same tech would be used for WoD as for Incarna/WiS/Ambulation/NameOfTheWeek....

    If that's the case, maybe they are making two crappy MMOs (j/k)

    Yea, I do realize that it wont be some huge expansion. Most likely it will just add the station walking, and a few things to do in each station or some such. But still, I think it would be great to be able to go inside your corps HQ and attend meetings with everyone in the corp or the "heads" of said corp/alliance. Along with using this to negotiate treaties, etc.

    I stopped waiting for Incarna a long time ago.  It might be too late to pique my interest now.  For me, it will probably depend on how the next round of MMOs goes.

    yeah i agree that would be damn cool although i'm still partial to a good space station cantina shootout/brawl between concord, some smugglers, a few crafty vets and a boatload  of day 3 noobs.

    Yah because everyone knows that you don't need legs to use gas and brake pedals to drive a car and surely the pod pilots in EVE just get teleported inside their ships... How dare they try to add realism  /sarcasm

    I think incarna could be a new beggining for eve if it is supported with regular content updates.

     

    One day say 2-3 years after its initial release EvE would no longer be a game about "spaceships".
