EVE Online discusses installing and testing new server hardware

Gotta go... well, mostly just away.

Server technology is definitely some sort of black alchemy. The new EVE Online server technology is being installed and tested at the CCP Games home office, and you can tell that all of the arcane patterns woven into server structures are just creatively cropped out of the pictures. You just know it. Still, it’s good news for players, not just because they get to play around on better hardware but because they’ll get to have a pretty great test event with full skill points.

Starting on December 4th, the new server technology will be up and running for players to test, albeit with a slightly higher ping than some players may be accustomed to. All characters on these test servers will have full skill points as well, as the developers would love to really test those servers with a gigantic space battle. Really, every piece of technology should be tested via space battles.

Tongle So who gets to make choices for everyone in this non-stagnated existence?

And i don’t think that’s a fact. WoW has been expanding on their initial offering and added a ton of features and improvements that has carried it forward without stagnating the game. You may disagree with the direction it’s taken, but that doesn’t mean it’s not progressing. EVE on the other hand has its own niche and does it well, if you’re into it. 
Neither of these mean that they are stagnating the genre, as they are only 2 games in a sea of other MMOs that do things “differently”. Death of either of these games will do absolutely nothing for the genre, in either positive or negative connotations.

If vets leave due to WIs that’s fine. The game is in a form of stagnation that needs new blood.

Because they both represent stagnation in their perspective genres.

Oskiee Came here to say exactly that.  EVE’s dev blog has been lacking in it lately and it’s the bit I love to read.

More precisely: Alchemy, Thaumaturgy, Demonic Summoning, and Linear Algebra.
