    • Sorry that you are not pleased for the DX11, but you can change your client to DX9 in the launcher:
      – top right corner, the small wheel
      – last tabulation : Direct X
      – change from DX11 to DX9 in the selection

      And now you can stop crashing randomly (I was always crashing when logging in space), and wait for CCP to fix the DX11 functions.

      For the Tutorial, I cannot help you with that, and it bothers me too.

      p.s.: sorry for the long soul searching questions from this podcast

  1. Thanks for all your answers on Noir History. It was a lot of information and soul searching, but it will surely help your listeners understand Noir better.

    I hope it will bring a lot of good recruits to NA, as Noir Academy is the best organizational decision Noir could make and the best investment for the NMC future.

    Sorry to hear about Alex Vindicator. Hope he gets a new shiny pewpewlazors unicorn to replace it soon.

    @Ali: CCP needs to be more open to their players about the general direction of their long-term road-map. They don’t have to give specifics but the 5 year plan and general priorities should be open to the public. Eve players are older and more mature and engaged than many MMO players.
    This should be done through the CSM (to avoid some direct heat), as this long term strategy could influence CSM elections and voting blocs, depending of the priorities the player-base wants CCP to work on.
    Currently the voters are in the total dark, stuck on local issues and not being informed about the greater picture, while only the greater picture will player retention in the long term.

    Great show and keep the great work

    • Thanks for listening, we appreciate it. You touch upon an interesting balance of power between the CSM and CCP; the question really is how much influence should CSM have over CCP’s game design decisions. You’ll find a full spectrum of answers to that question but time will tell I think.

  2. Hey Ninja Turtle.

    I used to do Incursions. I do recall an instance when there was an Incursion on a hi-sec island. A couple of things happened. Someone probed out a hi to hi WH – which enabled pilots to get their ships to the island. Plus there was an organised blops effort to bridge into the adjacent low gate onto the island. I doubt its common, but the effort can and has been made even by the risk adverse.
