Tactical Destroyers have been a great hit since their introduction. Not only do they dominate small-scale warfare (with Svipul by far the most popular ship), they brought the new exciting mechanic of mode switching. This allows T3D’s to be used in a wide range of interesting strategies and uses. However, as much praise and joy these new hulls bring, there are also a lot of concerns.

Are these ships too powerful? What about assault frigates and their role?  Are they too cheap? The unintended insta-warping after switching from speed mode to other modes? These and many more questions CCP wish to answer and they are asking for the communities help. On the 1th October CCP Fozzie posted this annoucment on the EVE forums:

FozzieHey everyone! We’d like to try out another way to gather specific feedback, and we’re looking for your help!

All four Tactical Destroyers have been out for a little while now and we’re of course planning on making more adjustments to the class over the coming months. To help with this task we intend to put together a focus group on T3Ds that will help provide feedback (especially subjective feedback) on the current state of these ships and on potential future changes.

  • We will use this forum thread to accept applications from players who wish to participate in the focus group
  • The decision on which players are invited to the focus group will be made by CCP
  • This focus group will not receive any secret information, and therefore will not be required to sign any NDAs
  • We plan on making the logs of the focus group chat public for everyone to view. Everyone can see what is being discussed, but only focus group members and CCP devs can actually talk
  • When selecting focus group members, we will be looking for people who can demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively and provide reasoned and calm feedback. We also want the members to have significant experience flying the Tactical Destroyers and to have strong knowledge of EVE gameplay, fittings and balance
  • The focus group will take place in a Slack team, so members will need to be able to use Slack

We are hoping that using a focus group of this type will allow us to quickly and easily gather feedback from players who have a strong breadth and depth of experience with the ships. If this group goes well, similar formats might be used for other focus groups on other topics.

Focus group members will not be forced to attend any meetings or to pass any minimum activity thresholds. People in any time zone are welcome.

If you’re interested in participating in this focus group, please post in this thread with an explanation of why you feel that you would make a valuable addition. We’ll provide a list of members and details of how players can observe the chat logs before we start inviting people to the Slack team.

Thanks!

This is a whole new approach from CCP side for communication with player base. Let us a hope those who are sucsessful in their applications will help to bring interesting and objective opinions to help CCP with their never ending quest of balancing the PvP Ecosystem of Eve.

  8. Expert shares 20 pitfalls and 5 ideas to help you up your game

    What makes a good internet dating profile? Acclaimed photographer and dating profile expert Saskia Nelson shares her wisdom on selfies, Clichs and how flash photographs can add SEVEN years to your faceBeen there and done that: Saskia’s expertise has been widely praised and her tips are brilliantGet the best daily news stories by emailSubscribeSee our privacy noticeMore newslettersThank you for subscribingWe have more newslettersShow meSee our privacy noticeCould not subscribe, repeat the process laterInvalid EmailRemember when asking someone out was a minefield? comping up to the courage to approach them, And eating your fear of being spurned (However tactfully)?Then came along the advent of online and app dating. While technology enables hubs that weren previously possible, It also comes with new and various neuroses.Selling oneself in a way which attracts a) Mostly positive energy b) incredibly least ridicule whilst c) Also being true to firsthand and d) Looking nice getting too try hard is TOUGH.Londoner Saskia Nelson knows all on this,of this. She used online dating services on and off for seven years before meeting her boyfriend, And in 2013 she set up Hey saturday, An effective dating photography business.Aware of how people struggle to get their profile right for them, And the pitfalls thousands of people have fallen into, She shared her 25 dating shape commandments with Mirror Online.Photos Three or four photos is the magic number to draw people and not put them off. People are put off if you less than that. And too many photos means you opening yourself up to more the possiblility to put people off.1. Selfies studies suggest it OK for women to have selfies, Whereas with guys it’s contemplated a turn off.Avoid pouting looking too sexy natural, Genuine smiles are best avoiding showing too much skin (until you in for hook ups of course).I wouldn recommend having more than one selfie though, As it will begin to look like you have no friends.We testing a new site:this article is coming soon2. Mirror selfies So young women might just get away with this, But it unlikely guys are going to think you seriously interested in finding love.most of these selfies suggest you into hook ups. If you actually dating with a view to finding love, Then drop these in the profile.Flash photography is said to add SEVEN YEARS to your face so there a reason right there to escape the mirror and head outdoors.3. Messy backgrounds These tend to distract people and they do not know what they looking at in the shot. If too distracted by other things to see your face, You seemingly lost them.4. more than one person in the shot Supposing they like the look of your friend more or they don like the look of your friends? Another wasted the chance you have lost them again.5. Pictures with children Whether people want to have children or hot latin women not is a sore point for some people for various reasons.Having boys in shot (it is not important whose children they are) Just puts the issue on the agenda way ahead of time.6. Studio portrait shots i am hoping people aren still using these, But they certainly were in my day. These shots are too posed and formal.
