The Day After
The day after Inferno was pretty low-key from what I could tell. I think most everyone was worn out and just wanted to relax.
When I logged on, some of my corpmates were already out plexing trying out the new system. They had a neutral alt carrier in system with plexing ships. Already adapting to the station lock outs, it seems.
I took out a navy slicer and joined them for a plex or two then roamed a bit just to see the contested bar in various systems.
I love getting LP for plexing, absolutely love it. I started out my EVE career plexing like mad, having plexed all the way up to Divine Commodore (before we had FW missions), so that was a lot of plexing for no reward other than useless VP. Now, every time one is captured tada! LP. I don’t even mind the LP rate because I rarely did a FW mission so I never had any LP to begin with. I’m loving it, really.
After you capture a plex, you get rewarded if you’re within range of the timer. I don’t like this, really. Last night, Almity and I were in a small plex and a war target came in. During the fight, Almity got out of range of the timer and he missed out on the LP.
If plexing is supposed to inspire pvp, and LP is your reward for plexing, then you should get the LP by being inside the plex, not just within range of the timer.
After you close a plex you will now get an EVE mail stating how much LP you received. I have mixed feelings on that. I do like knowing how much LP was rewarded, however, I do think getting mails for it will get tiresome after a while.
You also get mails for pvp kills against your war targets with your LP payout. (I got a little over 8k LP for this KM)
You get LP for war targets but not against neutrals. I would like to see LP for killing neutrals who come into your plexes.
At one point I took a Drake into a major plex- absolutely loving the new missile effects, so, so sexy.
I really like the new paint jobs, especially on the vengeance and the bhaalgorn. Yummy.
I have mixed feelings on the new hangar system. I was fine with the old way, but I’m trying to have an open mind and hopefully will get used to it. Jester Trek, a popular blogger, has written an informative article about the new inventory system, check it out.
Speaking of blogs, I’d like to point you guys to a new FW blog, Galdornae’s ‘One Man Blob’, here. He has a write-up about the battles of Kourm and Kam that’s pretty interesting.
Also, check out this video from RobekPL, it features some highlights from the Kourm and Kam battles.
So, that’s my thoughts on Inferno for the most part, what do you guys think? Comment below!
