EVE Online: Crucible This Month

The EVE Online Website announces EVE Online: Crucible a 15th free expansion for CCP's space-based MMORPG they say will be released on November 29th. Calling this "EVE re-forged," they say: "This winter, CRUCIBLE evolves the graphics, interface and game mechanics with over three dozen updated and improved features based on feedback and challenges put forth by its players." They promise further details next week, and in the meantime, outline the following planned features:

  • Four fan-designed battlecruisers built to deliver swift and effective destruction to the opposition
  • Over a dozen stunningly remade nebulae, changing the look and feel of EVE's universe completely
  • Other fan-favorite graphical improvements such as engine trails, warp tunnels and shadows
  • Time dilation in fleet flights -- adjusting time itself to keep fairness alive when hundreds of players face off against each other
  • 3 new factional captain's quarters with unique, artistic looks
  • A significant ship rebalancing effort, to bring greater diversity and balance to large and small scale conflicts
  • A lot of small changes -- from fonts to UI to Doomsday devices to PvE tweaks

The Sims in space feature was horribly designed. They honestly seemed to believe dolls + cash shop + no actual content would = huge numbers of new subscribers to a viscerally unfriendly spreadsheet game. Oops!

"Time dilation" and a ship re-balancing that neuters level 85 flying mounts are the most interesting big changes. It took about 5 years before they added a skill queue, so 7 for a modern UI is par for the user-friendly course with CCP.
