    Interceptors will now be immune to bubbles.  That sounds nice!

    I hope the boost the EA frigs is significant enough to make them more useful.  I used to take my Sentinel out in frig gangs pretty often but I felt I could've contributed much more if I just brought an Ishkur.

    Do you think non-eve players care? Not that I really care if you post in this forum, but why would non eve players care about the xpac? New posts show up under the recent feed section no matter if they're in a game forum.

    I'm a non eve player and I care.

     

    Thank you for sharing that info I might just try Eve again been a few years...

    Looking forward to jumping into my marauder, guess its time to check out the EA frigs again as well .

    Why are you reading this post, if you do not care! Some people are so ironic.

    EVE pisses me off in a major way. Why?

    Because it has the best roleplaying, PvP and economical systems of any MMO out there. It also has really fancy graphics that make you sigh in awe.

    The problem is, it doesn't feel like a game. Everything I do in EVE feels like I'm just sifting through spreadsheets and math formulas. I get to do enough of that at work. And when you play a while you also quickly realize all those beautiful spaceships are nothing more than singular points in space with some numbers attached to them. The graphics are just a curtain pulled in front of your eyes so that you cannot see how crude the simulation is underneath it.

    For all the lack of depth, systems and stuff that Star Citizen might be guilty of, I'm still pretty sure it will captivate me more than EVE, because there is an actual game on top of all the systems, and a believeable, immersive world to interact with.

    SOunds like a problem with you, not the game.

    I've never touched any form of spreadsheets in that game, and it never felt like maths to me either. Maybe it's because I'm mostly a combat/exploration pilot. Drama, paranoia and pew pew don't leave much space for spreadsheets. 

    Try doing other things and experience might change.

    Yes it is clearly a matter of personal preference. For me, EVE just doesn't feel like I'm immersed in the world. Whenever I see ships gliding through each other, pivoting on a fixed point, shooting through obstacles, when you zoom out to 1 AU away from your ship and it's supposed to be a "camera drone" (lol) etc. it hits me. The graphics are not real. It's just a representation of what is essentially a very small set of data in a 3D space. Each ship is just a vector in space, nothing more. A point with direction and speed. They have no mass, no inertia and no substance.

    I've tried PvE missions, mining, PvP in solo and fleets, trading, exploration, wormholes, etc. It doesn't matter what you do in EVE, if you can't get past the realization above. I unfortunately cannot. Not when you're supposed to be flying a huge ship that is in fact just one single vector with a database attached to it.

    I don't know how to explain it better. If you have played space games with realistic newtonian physics you understand what I mean.

    I see. I've noticed some people didn't like the modular nature of the game.

    I have never played or liked any space games. Spaceships are not really the reason I play (and I assume most people are the same). The abstract side of the game is what appeals to me.

    I agree. I like the setting of the game though, but it's not what is keeping me subscribed.
