EVE Abandons Older CPU Support

The EVE Online Website explains that when version 1.1.0 of Incursion launches tomorrow, CCP's MMORPG will cease supporting older CPUs that cannot handle the SSE2 instruction set, saying this means they will no longer support Intel Pentium 3 (or older) and AMD Athlon XP (or older) CPUs. Surprisingly, there are actually still players using such hardware, as CCP says this will impact about 0.3% of their users. However, the update also does leave it unclear whether this lack of support is permanent, as this vague bit explains: "We urge everyone who encounters this specific error to submit a petition to our customer support department. We will have updates on the next steps we take with this issue immediately after the weekend but we wanted to get a blog up ASAP to inform everyone about the issue." Thanks Big Download.

For a while(through Apocrypha IIRC), EVE was supporting two engines(less modern and more modern engines), so I don't see why they can't in this case. I imagine that is what the petition will do, perhaps
