Eve Online: Incursion (Part 2) Is Live!

By Jim Rossignol on January 19th, 2011 at 8:13 am.


The new update for Eve Online went up yesterday – the second part of Incursion, as I understand it – and it’s being celebrated with extended subs for those people who bought into the game during the launch of the first part of the game. This update also features lashings of new stuff, including the new character creator (above) for making the lumpy Eve character faces all pretty and stuff. (Although I suspect I would still make my bald old Amarrian into a bald old Amarrian.) Below I’ve posted a video in which CCP talk about “Beautification And Graphics Updates.”

Come on then. Hands up who is playing Eve? Make me jealous.

    Damn, now I need another trial account, just to see that editor with my own four eyes.

    *slightly raised hand*

    My subscription was supposed to expire on the 17th of Jan, but CCP actually gave me a free extension till the end of the month to try out the new features.

    Nice move, now I just need to find more time to actually play this bloody huge timesink of a game instead of just adding skills in the queue whenever EVEMon whines.

      This.

      been queuing up for over 6 months now… have only flown in 1 fleet op and yea thats about the most exciting active eve gaming ive done. except trusting my android eve app instead of evemon (oh the joy of realizing my training is over and i have nothing in my queue while at the hospital and frantically trying to reach a friend to queue me up).

      if there ever was a game that taught that life moral of time being some sort of an essence, eve takes the cake.

      excited about the update, will have to login tomorrow and see if my amarr avatar can wear a cape/hood otherwise ill have to seriously re-consider my subscription.

    • Cooper says:

      Yeah, the timesink that EVE is in order to get into what makes it AMAZING!!! is just too much for me now.

      I tried again at the beginning of last year, and it was going well for a while. Then I ended up playing NOTHING but EVE. There are too many good games out there for me to spend all my time with one love, no matter how fabulous it is.

      Thing is, I also don’t like being behest to other people when playing games (isn’t that why one of RPS doesn’t like MMOs?) and EVE requires ‘RL’ arrangement in order to fly in squads and organise events. It’s not well suited for drop-in-and-play gaming.

    • DevilSShadoW says:

      Amen to evemon whining!

    I’m gonna miss all the old faces that I’ve grown so used to over the years.

  4. Stephen Roberts says:

    Obligatory comment saying how EVE could be a great game but it messed it’s mechanics and UI to the point of no return. I mean it’s just ‘not for me’. Minor jealousy at people that do play it. Which is like being jealous of the town drunk because he’s clearly having so much fun.

    Obligatory post defamating (defecating?) over above post and negative views, defending EVE Online. What? I’ve lost it. It’s before 9am as well. What is with that?

  5. Alexander Norris says:

    Not sure if it’s that particular face or what, but it’s deep, deep in the uncanny valley. I hope we never get that close a look at any capsuleer avatar’s face if they’re all like that.

    I’m seriously considering resubbing for a month just to play with the character creator. I don’t know if I like my EVE legacy to be left as a question mark.

    • Eplekongen says:

      I actually resubbed just to play around with it, of course I was wildly drunk at the time and it was one month before it was released, my one month just went out the 16th…

    • Benny says:

      Do it M! Hell if me Tup and Duck are leading fleets you can just sit back and enjoy the DIAF with a shiny new face :)

  7. kyrieee says:

    Too bad they butchered the visual characteristics of the races in making this character creator. It’s almost like it was made for a different game entirely *cough* WoD *cough*

    • Stick says:

      Heh. I was going to say, it’s a bit interesting the “weight” slider for females goes from “passably human” to “emaciated 1000-year-old vampire who’s been subsiding on a rat per month”.

  8. FiX says:

    OMGOMGOMGIT’SSOPRETTYI’MGONNADIE!!!11oneoneeleven.

    The chargen is up there with APB, apart from the clothing options. Which are irrelevant anyway seeing how you’re normally supposed to be all matrix-ed up in your goo filled capsule.

    As for the obligatory UI, learning curve, gameplay, “fun” issues, I insist that it currently offers something other MMOs don’t, and that is something that’s not meant for everyone.

    Starcraft and Heroes of Might and Magic are both strategy games, the Quake and Battlefield series are both multiplayer FPSs, WoW and EVE are both MMOs.. hell, you can even go with same subgenres and see differences, say, S.T.A.L.K.E.R and METRO 2033.

    Totally different game philosophy, even though it’s based on the same principle and similar settings. STALKER is a buggy mess that CTDs every 20 minutes, but I still prefer it compared to the linearity of METRO. Same goes with Saints Row 2 (another messed console port that needed a supercomputer to run when released) and GTA IV.

    Blizzard has found a gold formula for accessibility with WoW, and is sticking to that. Heck, it keeps making it easier (to the dismay of more seasoned players) and that’s good for them. You can’t beat that.

    But some, well, we prefer this mess that EVE is, just because you can actually do mostly anything, and there’s always two craploads of people online to do it with or against. You can’t beat that either.

  9. mandrill says:

    *cough* This is the third and final part of the Incursion expansion proper (no doubt there will be some patching and hotfixing before the week is done) not the second.

    The first was largely made up of player requested fixes and tweaks, while the second introduced a new ship and more tweaks. This portion contains all the headline features (new character creator, the actual ‘Incursions’ themselves and improvements to the PI interface)

    /pedant

  10. Bloodloss says:

    I’d love to play Eve and be an outlaw pirate or something, but to do this I’d need to pay for multiple accounts and spend a crazy amount of time doing boring things in order to do the fun things. Shame really.

    • President Weasel says:

      Actually, you wouldn’t. There’s an RPS corp and a loosely allied Eurogamer corp, and either of those will happily sort you out with some frigates to fly while you learn the ropes. You can be useful in PVP within a couple of weeks (and it will likely take you those same couple of weeks to get used to the mechanics and the UI anyway).
      You might need to find something to do in order to generate space cash to spend on the ships you keep getting blown up, but a little bit of missioning or ratting should cover the kind of ships a new player would be flying anyway.

      As for me, I’m not playing right now. It’s a time sink and I just get the feeling that it’s plateaud. I miss the guys I was flying with though, so I keep thinking I might go back some day.

    • opel says:

      “You might need to find something to do in order to generate space cash to spend on the ships you keep getting blown up, but a little bit of missioning or ratting should cover the kind of ships a new player would be flying anyway.”

      Such are examples of “boring things.” You can’t profit from pirating until you’re drowning in money and SP.

    • President Weasel says:

      You can join a corp in 0.0 and be welcome flying tackle in fleets even with low SP and cheap ships. They’ll probably help you out with the ships, too. You don’t need to spend all your time missioning for ages before you go shoot people in the face.

    • Stick says:

      1) Do the Epic arc. You’re now familiar with the basics of most gameplay aspects, and you have – say – 15 million ISK and a bunch of gear.
      2) Grab PvP-capable frigate. (For the best bang for the least amount of SP, I recommend a blaster Incursus. Rifters are, of course, awesome, but require t2 guns to really come into their own.)
      3) Prowl about in low-sec. Tussle with everything you find. Get blown up quite a bit. Get some rather hilarious kills where people go “wtf you’re like five days old”. Learn.
      4) Shoot random NPC battleships here and there. (The bounty on each one will let you fit an entirely new frigate.) Get basic salvaging skills and salvage any t2 / faction wrecks you see. (You can get loot worth 10-30 mil from a single interceptor wreck.)
      5) You are now a potentially fun-having, economically sustainable outlaw while still in your trial weeks.

      Done this twice on trial accounts while “main” was unsubbed and it works. (Disclaimer of course being, I already had some experience with directional scan and knowing what my ship could feasibly engage. But still.)

      “Don’t fly what you can’t afford to lose, but for the love of god FLY.”

    • Benny says:

      Yes there is an RPS corp. RPS Holdings. And we generally tend to pick up new players and throw them into fires, watch them explode, then explode with them. It’s a lot of fun really. And yes as has been said, within a week you can be actively helping in fleet fights. Tackle frigates are always needed and useful.

      Come all join in the hilarity!

  11. TooNu says:

    I play EvE and have done since 2006.

    @Bloodloss – No, that is a myth. You can be an outlaw from early on. I have a friend called Eviwyn who has been pirating from within her first month. A year on and she is ranked 1384 which is impressive. Also Pirating is HUGE fun :) YARR!

    @Jim – Aside from time constraints, real life ambition and all the other things you have going on, it still baffles me why you would write a great book which incorporated your love of EvE and then stop playing. If anything your own book makes EvE out to be the messiah of gaming and it is infact everyones duty to play it.
    Either way, I guess you did pretty much do everything and feel no need to play it. Which is fine, just a shame.

    I started playing with a bunch of mates last week. It takes nothing less than pure dedication, but it can already be so very rewarding. Hats off to CCP.

    We spent a lot of time in the character creator last night, but more so looking at other people’s (mis)creations in local chat. :’)

  18. darthmajor says:

    I’ll be coming up on my second year of EVE-ing, and i can’t imagine not playing it or playing a different MMO. It totally doesn’t have to be a timesink, during university i can only play a few hours a week which i can use to peeveepee and rest easy in the knowledge that my character is progressing nicely and not falling behind.
    And the new char creator is beyond awesome ^_^

  19. Om says:

    I’ve no interest in MMOs (though if I did it would probably be EVE) but I could spend hours playing with that character creator. I don’t suppose that there’s an offline version?

  20. Kelduum Revaan says:

    Come on then. Hands up who is playing Eve? Make me jealous.

    Would being the CEO of Eve University, the largest (probably) corporation in the game, with thousands (definitely) of alumni count? :D

    And as usual, if anyone is looking to get into EVE, look us up – we’ve just changed our recruiting process which means you should be able to get a recruitment interview a lot faster now, and there’s our public chat channel and wiki as well while you wait.

    • Dave says:

      Disregard this, he is a spai or something. RPSH is the official unofficial RPS corp in Eve. Plus Eve Uni are terrible griefers and will steal all your stuff.

      (above comment may or may not be true im not saying)

    • Bouncl says:

      Disclaimer: I’m only saying this to avenge my injured pride, and to restore the balance of the universe.

      My corporation (Dreddit) is certainly much larger than EVE Uni, at about 2,200 players. Goonwaffe also stands at about 2,000 players. I’m almost 100% certain EVE-Uni is 3rd though. I don’t think any corp in IT breaks 800.

      @Kelduum:

      (… mind you, it’s hard to find fault with the Bring A Goddamn Griffin course. I was looking forward to the Thrasher / Wolfpack 1v8… until it turned into a 0v8. Healthy respect for frig-flying academics earned.)

    • Kelduum Revaan says:

      @Bouncl – good point, I haven’t checked in quite a while, and there’s no corp rankings anywhere. The question is do you allow alt’s, and do you guys regularly purge inactive members?

      Give us a few months, and we’ll be there though – new recruiting kicked in this week :)

    Actually. I’m slotting in skills into queues, and sometimes mining a bit. It’s relaxing.

    I’m still waiting for the stations part.

    Character editor is nice. If a little bit limited.

  24. Dave says:

    Usual plug for RPSH. Eve’s premier corp of Geneticly modified super human pilots.

    Join RPS community in game for a chat. Recruitment is srticlty elitist and we may ask you such searching questions as your name, favourite colour and average airspeed of various unladen birds.

    Look out for Eben Rochelle, T3hmuffinman, Rogue Cheetah, Benny XII or Tuppence. Either one of those can speak with authority about the corp although Eben will fob you off on someone else cos he isnt really a people person so stop badgering him with your shit, thats why he has directors for gods sake!

    Look forward to seeing you in game

    Eben “people person” Rochelle

    p.s the only reson im giving this a plug is beacuase the lulz where pretty good……

    but thats it!

    • President Weasel says:

      RPSH is the second-best corp in EVE (assuming you count the two closely-related Eurogamer corps as one corp) and I heartily recommend joining them.

  25. Pijama says:

    Maaaaan, I do not know. Talked with a mate about it and while I am seriously curious about it, I am also a bit disheartened by some of the tremendous problems he mentioned, such as lag when switching “zones” and having raiders waiting you to lag out and kill you, for instance.

    Not to mention the community going “FIX THE DAMN THING ALREADY BEFORE TAKING ON TO THE NEW STUFF” at every circumstance. Not exactly encouraging. :\

    • Bouncl says:

      Not sure what your buddy means by lag. It is possible to die from lag when you jump into a new system. Your ship will on the server, but you won’t have loaded yet, meaning you can’t do anything. However, this only happens when jumping into a system with a large battle going on. (500 players, maybe?)

  26. darthmajor says:

    Internet demons ate my previous post :(
    EVE is the only MMO that doesn’t really punish people who can’t grind/raid several hours every day, and lets you rest easy in the knowledge that your character is progressing while you are slaving away studying physics at university…i can’t imagine playing another MMO, or even not playing EVE when i go home to rest.
    And CCP made HUGE progress fixing lag, battles are playable on non-reinforced nodes up to 800 people, and there was a clash of 3200 players without the node dying.
    EVE is unique, nothing really compares to it.
    Especially Starcraft. :P

      “EVE is the only MMO that doesn’t really punish people who can’t grind/raid several hours every day, and lets you rest easy in the knowledge that your character is progressing while you are slaving away studying physics at university…”

      One of the reasons I decided to drop the game back when I tested the waters was purely because it was going to punish me for not playing. The skill point/book learning system means you have a real world deadline to queue up your next book. Which costs money. So you have x hours to earn x cash. If that’s not punishing I dunno what is. I can see what they are going for with the skill point trickle while you’re offline but it doesn’t payoff like intended. Or it didn’t for me.

      For a more enjoyable set of my opinions see this. It’s creepy how often I agree with everything he says. Everything.

    • FiX says:

      @Stephen

      Actually, with the multitude of skills required, specially in the beginning, you have to be laser focused in your role/ skill goal, an alt, or a somewhat moderate to high-end player before you actually have to buy the more expensive skillbooks.

      Seriously, I was impressed with the difference that training core skills (mostly acquired for free by completing the tutorial) to level 4-5 had on my flying. The same ships were now harder, better, faster, stronger and that left an impression when breezing through previously hard missions.

      Casual play can let you do some ratting or mining to get by until you’ve gone through the basic stages and moved up to a destroyer or cruiser. From there on, well, yeah, planning helps. Being OCD too.

      And as far as Yahtzee is concerned, while I enjoy his reviews, he is as suitable to review an MMO as a deaf person is to write about a jazz record. Or a bishop reviewing a Dawkins book. Or a vegan reviewing a steakhouse. Notice the pattern there :P

    • darthmajor says:

      “It was going to punish me for not playing. The skill point/book learning system means you have a real world deadline to queue up your next book. Which costs money. So you have x hours to earn x cash. ”

      You can play weeks and weeks while training the skills that you get books for from the tutorial for free. And then a year or two with the skills that are dirt-cheap for t1 ships. Skillbook prices are pretty much a non-factor up to the capital level, when it starts to hurt a bit but if you can’t afford the books you can’t afford the ships anyway. Also, you character’s head doesn’t explode if he/she doesn’t train for a day or two ;) But someone who plays 24/7 will still spend the 7 or so days training hull upgrades 5 like me, who could only play on saturday and then back to uni it was.
      By the way, learning skills were removed recently, so it’s even easier to get going!
      And yeah, yahtzee is funnny but…what Fix said ;) EVE is not for everyone, and playing alone would drive most people nuts, but he didn’t even scratch the surface in that review…

    • Stephen Roberts says:

      “Actually, with the multitude of skills required, specially in the beginning, you have to be laser focused in your role/ skill goal, an alt, or a somewhat moderate to high-end player before you actually have to buy the more expensive skillbooks.”

      Yeah I was focused on learning learning skills (to learn learnier!). Also I’d peg myself at the moderate to high end player point as well; I didn’t really feel like there a was much of the, now apocryphal, steep learning curve.

      “By the way, learning skills were removed recently, so it’s even easier to get going!”

      I had a dream that I was playing EVE last night. It was better because of this. Your arguments sway me. ONLY SLIGHTLY. But they sway me, sirs. (minor fist shakin’).

  28. Batolemaeus says:

    I’m sorry but https://image.eveonline.com/Character/668773800_256.jpg

    Yes.

    Anyways, the char creator is pretty disappointing. Zero gameplay value and thus of no use for me.
    However, there were some great bugfixes and improvements to the game, which nobody seems to talk about. They are what’s actually nice about the expansion.

    Personally, I couldn’t care less about either the PvE feature or the character editor.

  29. Batolemaeus says:

    Great, my comment got eaten.

    Personally, couldn’t care less for the soon to be abandoned pve feature that was stacked on top of the other abandoned pve features. I don’t care for the character editor either. That’s a lot of manhours wasted for zero gameplay value.

    However, the expansions fixed some stuff and improved the ui a bit. Hopefully a trend towards fixing the multitudes of broken mechanics that were left to rot for ages.
    I, for one, used the time people spent on their characters to make myself familiar with the new shortcut system and the changes to gameplay behaviour.

    Never played EVE, or any other MMO for that matter. But Jim’s love for the game put it on my radar. I finally grabbed a copy of Incursion during the Steam Xmas sale just so I could play with the character creator.

    Was downloading the update last night when an earthquake knocked out the power! While try again when I get home. I have a feeling though, I should be reading a Wiki or two today just so I know what the heck I’m doing when I finally log in…

    • darthmajor says:

      Wanted to give it another shot and point out that there a quite a few tutorials that explain things in great detail, you just have to have the patience to go step by step through them…then there’s the epic arc which should entertain you for a few days, and…encourage (to put it mildly) engaging with the community and other players. Wikis are always helpful, but the only way to learn to fly internet spaceships is by flying internet spaceships. Enjoy!

  38. Kodoru says:

    Updated 2 chars last night… parts of it are interesting for awhile with grabbing body parts to change the look, but then you get to stuff like the hair… guys have at least 4 versions of military buzz cuts but the only shoulder length hair was dreads. No height slider bar (which I would think would be wanted when we’re all walking in stations instead of everyone the same height). No point to changing body style (muscles, etc) since the cloths are bulky and cover it all, and only about 10 choices for pants or a shirt too.

    Promising, but then severely limited. Disappointed.

  39. Zyrusticae says:

    I got back into it and I’m just lovin’ it.

    Right now I’m in an NPC corp running missions all the time, and despite the monotony of it I’m actually enjoying myself. Weird. I also have an alt running planetary operations, which is a nifty feature all its own.

    I don’t plan on joining any player corps anytime soon; I love the control over my time I possess running solo.

  40. Zyrusticae says:

    Confirming comment getting eaten up. Sigh.

    Anyways, as I was saying, I’ve gotten back into it and find it surprisingly engaging. There’s just so much to do that, really, there’s no reason to ever be bored unless you’re just too scared or lazy to go out and *do* stuff.

    Mind you, I’m also running solo in an NPC corp, so there’s a lot that’s cut out for me, but there’s still so many things to do in the game regardless (besides mission running, there’s wormholes, industry, planetary interaction, straight-up trading/market manipulation, research & development, and even some solo PvP). The only one to blame for the game being boring is yourself.

    The time consuming aspect of it, on the other hand… I have nothing to discount that.

      Well you are completely right, i am obviously in the wrong here for assuming that posting a comment will, you know, post a comment. I don’t comment often, i’m more of a lurker so i didn’t know about the insatiable hunger of the site’s software for my badly written comments, first time i didn’t know, second time i forgot, third time it kept telling me it’s duplicate…and considering i didn’t see much complaining about this before, i’d assume the RPS hivemind would prefer people actually signaling that something was wrong.
      But anyway, i too hate the morons who don’t copy their comments before posting just in case they need it.
      ffs.

Or it’s working as intended?

    That’s nice of them to do this. I was pretty pissed the hell off when I resubscribed back in November at the promise that the new features wold all be released on the 20th. I suppose I can find it in my heart to forgive them.
