The new missile effects are amazing, and the new launcher graphics make the Tengu look like the beast it really is. I honestly can’t express just how good missile look now, and videos don’t really do the improvement justice. Seeming different types of missiles flying all around is pretty jaw-dropping. It’s these kinds of visual improvements that keep EVE looking like a game released today, and the lack of such work which makes ‘old’ MMOs look dated. Simply no reason others can’t do this and keep their MMO relevant and growing instead of out to pasture and awaiting death/F2P.
The new inventory UI is good overall, but needs some work. The amount of time it takes to load anything in our POS is unacceptable (10-25sec!), and how the new UI functions when looting wrecks is (currently) a major step back. That said I don’t doubt that CCP will smooth out the rough edges, and after a few fixes the overall outcome will be positive. The core is good, but it’s currently spoiled by a few things that just annoy you to no end.
Edit: CCP doing work.
