Other major changes accompany it: The ability to see if someone is a baddie without checking out their character sheet. The new map, delivering an epic long zoom enabling you to say “woo” every time the camera tracks back from your ship and out to the entire universe. A new fleet command system, with stacks of annoyingly complex gang bonus and command tools.
And then there’s the contracts system. This huge tool for EVE’s economy enables more trust, more flexibility and the capacity for players to create missions for each other. It’s a clear indication that EVE’s economic growth is just as important as the exploding spacecraft we hold so dear.
