Really, this is a bug list that really annoys me. I really have a hard time deciding which one bothers me the most. I will not get Eve until the following have been addressed to some degree:

1) LAG! Granted this is better, but now I'm not sure this is due to the lack of people or they actually have a handle on it.

2) Dropped nodes. It is really annoying to work your butt off only to loose it to a pirate (NPC or otherwise) just because your node drops off.

3) Factories and Research blueprints go missing. What is the point of being able to plug something in and go away for the night in the hopes of coming back in the morning to finished products, only to find that your blueprint is no longer found?

4) Cannot repair your ship. So I fly around and get knocked off because of lag and a pirate hurts my ship - now my damaged ship will remain so or get buggered up all to hell.


I would like everyone to add your list of bugs/pet peeves about Eve. For those that end up playing it, let us know if they have taken care of them.

Not a bug, but #1 on my list is:


The need for a privacy mode or filter mode, regarding chat. People can spam you and attack.

I've already bought it, just awaiting it.

the LAG was the killer for me. It just wasn't fun to sit and wait for the damn server to catch up every time I wanted to do something.

The lag wasn't that bad the last week - but I still noticed a few "reverse warps". I seem to have more dropped nodes than lag problems (not sure if they are one and the same).

They try a different approach (NPC police) to take care of the griefers, but I think they are probably a little too light for those that really want to grief.

It was very annoying to me to see the final(?) stats for the ships the day before it goes live.

On the lighter side, does anyone else find it funny that Innom, Frog and Rollio are playing a point-n-click game? :p

Kinda all irrelevant for me, since I have a pre-order, which should probably arrive today.

I can't recall a method to search corps, but I'll keep an eye open :)
