Don't normally write on forums but as this is a patch i've been eagerly anticipating since its first announcement and it seems shrouded in controversy I want to add my feedback.
CQ - Well its a step in the right direction the possibilities for the future are promising in player interaction and integration with DUST, i'm not overly happy about DUST being purely for playstation as I only bought my XBOX so i could play DUST and dislike playstation, guess i'll have to have two consoles now :S
CQ is very slow, smooth but slow on the lowest of graphics settings. This doesn't supprise me as im stuck on an integrated Radeon HD 4200 until my delivery turns up today with shiny new NVIDIA graphics card, yes i noted ATI was not favoured, yes I read the patch notes, yes i tested CQ on duality and yes I made a fairly well informed guess yesterday that my current setup wouldn't play EVE how I wanted it to and therefore made preperations for such. But essentially it worked though, so my wait up till 1am was at least not completely fruitless :P
I would like to be able to sit on the sofa without having to walk round to the front of it for the option to become active. In rl i can hop over the back, would be nice to do the same in CQ, only a suggestion tho.
The new ingame store, well pricing is fairly steep, I certainly won't be buying anything from there but when i see all the old alliance leaders and other scammers or just hard grafters sat on hundreds of billions of isk it puts it into perspective. Exclusive items for people with exclusive amounts of isk or RL cash. Bit like people who buy Revenant BPC's for 50billion. Status symbol, shiny toy, call it what you will there is always going to be a social divide, pixelated or rl same difference. So yes keep the store exclusive otherwise theres not much point having it as a shiny feature maybe one day I can afford it :)
For some people who are saying they wish you could move your character using the arrow keys, well you can, after messing on duality it's the first setting i changed. Press your escape key go into the movement sub tab and then change each movement key, theres only 4 doesnt take long.
Main future features i would like to see:
Be able to walk down alongside and under your ship
Interact with other players in station
Remove local chat
Overall i'm happy, thank you for finally bringing walking in stations to me after all these years!
