EVE Online has the Incarna expansion coming out this week. I am sure that will mean a few post patch patches. These things happen, so plan your training schedule accordingly. (i.e. pick a nice long skill to train)
While the coming of Incarna heralds some exciting new features (people tend to like them and find them exciting or dislike them and get excited themselves on the subject) such as the Captain’s Quarters or a new currency with a cash store to go with it, I often find greater pleasure/amusement deep in the guts of the patch notes, and the Incarna 1.0 patch notes are no exception.
Deep within them you will find the following:
Sentry drones such as Garde, Curator and Warden were missing their firing animations. Thanks to the new turret system we can now witness their destructive power.
Hey, something I complained about nearly two years ago… and which no doubt existed for much longer… has finally been addressed. No longer will sentry drones just sit there, doling out invisible destruction.
It makes you think that maybe, some day, we’ll actually be walking on stations with our new avatars.
But with new animations, the captain’s quarters, and… if I heard right… new nebulae graphics for space, I might have come back and take a look.
Or maybe I can just hold another contest.
Would anybody be interested in a “Show Off Incarna” screen shot contest if I put up a PLEX or two as prizes?
Anyway, Incarna is about here as EVE continues to evolve.
