    Yes - its just "OCAU". Click the speech bubble on the top right of the chat window, type "OCAU" and "Join".

    In short:

    Another useless ship - the Noctis (salvage ship - basically a destroyer)
    Some UI changes - namely you can sort items by meta level
    Learning skills are gone - SP refunded, everyone has max attributes that a remap can change

    i'd actually say that the noctis is an awesome ship .

    80km tractor range and can clear a sanctum/haven / l4 mission in a couple of minutes with a 3000m3 hold is pretty awesome .


    I use mine to follow my main running l4's and clean up with loot .

    I agree, Noctis was a clever reuse of what actually was a use piece of shit - the Primae - a small indy with a pretty hull and no special use what so ever.

    The Noctis is more a BC sized hull with some REALLY nice tractor range and speed bonuses. It was awesome sauce to hear all the veterans who've suffered through AWU5 cry about the tractor bonus without remembering that they can shoot and salve at the same time without swapping ships.

    Used to play eve a while ago, had only like 6mil sp. I heard that sp is gone now? So what exactly happens as far as thats concerned... is there something in place instead of sp? How does it work now? Thinking about coming back to the game so just curious :Pirate:

    SP is still here, only Learning skills have been removed and everyone has been refunded their SP they invested into said skills.

    Eve could be much better if they removed the SP from all skills, but they would lose their heroin like addicts needing to wait to play waiting games.

    i think thats what eve is all about, you get this false sense that - hey im getting my moneys worth even when im not playing cause my SP are going up...

    saying that I like the SP system, the only thing i dont like about it, you have to be mega antique to roll up in carriers/bcruisers to pvp and get away with it.

    would be cool if there was a noob pvp zone for noobs only, n a pro pvp zone for pros (obviously).

    You don't need to have lots of SP to do that, you just need to focus. Those of us with lots of SP can just use a large selection of ships, and fittings. Early on you need to specialize on what you want, and go for that.

    And there sort of is. Factional Warfare is a great one to start with, then maybe wormholes.

    Well we know your a sisi. :p But yeah. Test server is mainly used as stated for testing setups, etc. So you could go down that avenue :)

    Veterans, no the veterans are remembering the days when you had to do science V to use a tractor beam, or worse, you needed to make insta-bookmarks and the like because there were no such thing as tractor beams. The veterans are remembering the days when the Apocalypse was the best mining ship, Yulai was the market hub and T2 was very exotic and expensive.
