Nov 9th 2009 6:10PM I'm not an expert, or even a current player of EVE, but this seems like it will have interesting consequences for 0.0. With unclaimed space (due to more confined alliance territory) there will be space open for everyone (high-sec, low-sec, pirates, etc.) to compete for the more rare/expensive ores rather than being dominated and held solely by alliance members.
May 12th 2009 5:20PM I have a question. Is it possible for an active Blood Knight to also participate and be a member of the Church of the Holy Light?
Jan 17th 2009 8:48PM Honestly? How many people is CCP really losing? A very small amount.
Jan 17th 2009 4:14PM They're actually temporarily losing me.
The premium client merely requires a Shader Model 2.0 card. I have a Radeon 9250, which is the most recent card to not support it, yet it is over 8 years old or so. Honestly, if you're going to game, you have to have the hardware; you can't expect to purchase a low end laptop or computer and be able to play every future game made.
Furthermore, CCP should not receive any flak in my opinion for eliminating subscribers; unless we should give flak to EA/Mythic for eliminating possible subscribers as they released their game with the SM2 requirement. I see no difference in past and possible subscribers, especially in the private market where companies can do whatever they please.
Another reason why I'm not exactly upset, is I saw this coming. I'm a hobbyist game programmer, and I realized that it would have to take around double the effort to maintain two clients. I'm glad they're finally abandoning the classic client, allowing them to proceed forward.
Dec 20th 2008 12:47PM I was truly surprised to find this here. I know you say that everyone should be able to see this in a light-hearted manner, but I would have to disagree. How would a pacifist feel if Ghandi had a shoe thrown at him, especially in a culture which regards showing the soles of your shoes to someone as the ultimate sign of disrespect.
Now, don't get my wrong, I laughed at this. I'm an Anarcho-Communist, so I pretty much despite Bush and all politicians with a passion. But again, surprised to have seen this here.
(In other news, I can't wait for the live WoW Insider show. It will be my first one to listen to.)
Dec 18th 2008 7:06PM I hope healing doesn't get fixed TOO much. I'm leveling my first and only character (62 ATM), and am currently specced as a Restokin.
When I did an instance Saturday, I was reinvited back for about three to four more instances because I was the only healer in existence.
Nov 6th 2008 7:14PM Hi
Nov 6th 2008 7:03PM I think it would depend. I enjoyed the Silmarillion, and language aspects of the books. Yet, I am not fond on Tolkein's writing, and so I did prefer the movies to a certain extent. I feel they could've done better, and captured some scenes differently, but all in all, I was pleased.
