  • Four fan-designed battlecruisers built to deliver swift and effective destruction to the opposition
  • Over a dozen stunningly remade nebulae, changing the look and feel of EVE's universe completely
  • Other fan-favorite graphical improvements such as engine trails, warp tunnels and shadows
  • Time dilation in fleet flights - adjusting time itself to keep fairness alive when hundreds of players face off against each other
  • Three new factional captain's quarters with unique, artistic looks
  • A significant ship rebalancing effort, to bring greater diversity and balance to large and small scale conflicts
  • A lot of small changes - from fonts to UI to Doomsday devices to PvE tweaks
Crucible is the first major expansion since the storm of controversy surrounding the game this summer, which ended in a candid public apology from CCP's CEO and a wave of job cuts at the studio.
