Quick Thoughts On EVE Vegas News

As the title says....

New FLEX Structures:
Basically the replacement for jump bridges, cyno beacons, and cyno jammers currently living on POSes, I'm glad they are all coming at once and hopeful they can finally give the POS code the viking burial it deserves. I'm looking forward into seeing if I can integrate them into my structure building efforts of Project Vulcan, but since they are null sec only its hard to get excited about them.

New Triglavian Ships:
I haven't had a chance to try out the current Triglavian ships! Really should get on that... anyone have some good fits handy? Honestly, the low sec casual roaming I do is not conducive to expensive trick ships, so hard to say how much it will impact me. I've seen only one Triglavian frigate in combat on my roams so far.

Cooperative and Competitive Abyssal Sites
I wholeheartedly approve. The one thing I did not like about Abyss sites in the initial release was the inability to run them with friends. As my motto stands "Do Things With Others" and Abyss sites were purely solo content (except when you came out). Hopefully the rewards scale with the effort of three pilots appropriately.

Project Nova
Assuming this is a PC version of a new Dust514, I'm looking forward to it. I like First person shooters even though I suck at them, and was very disappointed when Dust was a Playstation exclusive.

EVE Echos Mobile MMO
Meh. I highly doubt EVE's gameplay can flourish in a phone/tablet setting.

Overall some decent things on the horizon for the game, if not for me personally. I really wish Low Sec would get some unique love and not just overlaps with null sec and the rest of the game.

  1. I wish Low Sec _and_ Wormholes would each get some unique love...
