To which one of my alliance-mates replied...
No, they just touch all the things that people like, and make them worse....a comment that got a lot of laughs. ;-) The comment was flippant and off-hand, but the more I think about it, the more I think there's a lot of truth to it. Other than rockets, can anyone remember any existing in-game feature that CCP has buffed since the release of Dominion 1.1 in January 2010? Ratting space is worse, sleepers are much tougher, mission loot got the crap nerfed out of it, drone alloys were savaged... I can't think of anything that's been buffed. Of course, the Noctis and PI have both been introduced in the last 18 months, but those were new features, not existing ones.
There were a lot of buffs to existing in-game features in Dominion 1.1... but I think the devs would like to have some of those undone. ;-)
Anyone think of an in-game buff since January 2010 that I'm forgetting? Or has every major change CCP has made to existing in-game mechanics been negative since that time?
