    As someone else said, Eve always had the best trailers, here is another amazing video:

    I have not idea what this means, looks like Valkyrie and Dust integrated into Eve. I have no idea what the gate is, as I missed the keynote. All will be revealed Soon™

    They announced a while ago that there would soon be more space added to EVE... All I remember is that it tied into the Sisters of Eve implant set, Ascendancy, which greatly increases warp speed. Maybe you need that set to use the gate, or all systems on the other side are NPC space with 500 AU warps, so you can't bring anything bigger than a cruiser hull without sitting in warp for 10 minutes.

    I guess this is the Sisters of Eve thing, but I don;t understand what it means.

    I just watched The Prophecy again. Hearing someone saying, "Valkyries! intercept Those troop carriers"... Didn't spot that last time. I wonder if it really will all come together one day...

    Ghost sites were a new exploration site added that dropped Ascendancy implants for manufacture. Reading fanfest news, it seems that these gates are player built.

    This is encouraging.

    One day I might give Eve another look ... but I'm still bruised from last time - (several years ago).

    It's not only the "what now" moment that makes so many new players quit again. It's just as much (if not more) the insane douche bag attitude from the existing players that drive them away.

    Get rid of the scumbags and EvE might actually be an enjoyable game.

    And lol at using minecraft as an example......

    So just watched a podcast about gaming in general (co-optional podcast) and they happened to discuss the goons rather pathetic implosion and humiliating defeat. And having not really paid any attention to the game at all in years i decided to go find out what exactly happened..

    And oh my god is it a gold mine of pure comedy.. And reading about those events firmly convinced me that Mittani has actually gone absolutely bat shit crazy, i honestly don't think that he lives in the same world the rest of humanity do any more..

    Anyway for those interested here's the major links i found and they seem to be pretty unbiased even though they are reported by a member of Imperium (former CFC)..

    I was literally crying with laughter a few times.. Especially at Mittanis reaction to the name of the war. I suspect that even CCP were starting to get really bored by that alliance attitude... :D :D :D

    Lol, got curious about this new free to play feature they had and logged in to see what's what and instantly regretted it.. I can literally not use a SINGLE ship i own. EVERY SINGLE ONE requires a subscription. Well truth be told they may have done me a favor there, if i could fly those ships i probably may have started to get back into it again and i know all too well how that would have ended...

    I wasn't expecting them to be. But i wasn't expecting them to only let me use the basic frigates and cruisers either. And i certainly wasn't expecting to see 80% or more of all my skills disabled. Or the fact that even though you CAN buy and fly ships with rocket and missile bonuses on them you cant USE rocket or missile launchers unless you subscribe..

    Which is going to be really painful for the new Caldari players that buys a Kestrel thinking they can use it's bonuses, because why would CCP let them buy it and then not let them use the weapons it was designed for?

    Hell i couldn't even produce a stable PvE fit for the arbiter fgs. Sure i could use all the modules but the subskills needed to make the fit WORK was all disabled so the cap bleed was horrendous! I couldn't even fit an afterburner on it, let alone a MWD which i never go to lowsec without...

    CCP didn't make this game free to play, this is WoW starter edition in space. That's basically what CCP have done, they let free players level up to 20. But in such an annoying way that you're either gonna feel forced sub or ragequit.

    How were you not expecting any of that? They have communicated it quite clearly.

    "The most important thing to know about Alpha clones is that they may only use a specific set of skills and skill levels. To begin with, we are planning that the Alpha skill set will be focused on using tech one Frigates, Destroyers and Cruisers. Alpha clones will only be able to use ship and weapon skills native to their faction. If you have skills trained on a character in Alpha State, which are not part of the Alpha skill set, those skills will be locked and unusable until Omega state is reactivated. Characters will start the game with the same 400,000 skill points as they do now and will be able to train freely within the Alpha list. A fully trained Alpha will have roughly 5 million skill points."

    Its basically 2 months of sp for a new player, for free. No limitations to buying/selling and flying anywhere you want. That is a lot better than a level 20 character you can have in 4 hours that is then unplayable.

    Like i said earlier, i haven't paid any attention to EvE in years. But that's rather irrelevant, when a game goes free to play returning players generally really don't expect most of everything you have done or own to be locked behind a subscription paywall.

    Sure i can accept that my toons can only use weapons or ships native to them, i should have logged on my caldari toon to check but i didn't because i was too pissed off. But on the other hand i then feel like i should at least be able to use MOST ships and weapons native to my toon. Not just the ones at the bottom of the barrel and one slightly higher up.

    But regardless i still don't view this game as free to play just because you can play it for free. You could play it for free before this as long as you had enough ISK to pay for the plex...

    When i hear about a game that goes from sub to free to play i think of games like AoC, SWTOR, STO (now SECOND on my list of worst F2P model ever), EQ2, DCUO, ESO, Wildstar etc etc. Neither of those games are anywhere near as restrictive as this is. All of them offer a subscription as well, but they are mostly only for faster progression and a little bit of monthly RMT credits to spend in the ingame store. Some are a bit more generous but the gist of it is that free players can and should be able to use pretty much all the existing content available and they only have to pay small amounts for new content that subscribers get for free as long as they stay subbed.

    CCP could have easily done something similar. And in such a way that it wouldn't need to cost the existing subscribers anything extra at all...

    This game doesn't give you much of a choice in how you want to play. You either sub and get everything or you don't and accept that you'll forever be stuck in mostly inferior ships of which neither can use effective fits. Or maybe you can but it's currently so hard most free players won't bother with it.

    And regarding this being better then WoWs starter edition, not by much it isn't... Simply because the general idea behind the two is exactly the same, both games offers free trial accounts, they are just limited differently... But the goal is to make you buy a subscription and the limitations are designed with that in mind. But at least Blizzard don't try to hide that fact.

    Ok so i read their FAQ about this and are they really trying to blame the restrictions on botters and multiplexing?

    But whatever, at least this time it didn't cost me 15 euro to log in and remember how it always ends.. :)
