Dominion has arrived!

What I love:

  • Awesome looking planets, moons and backgrounds.
  • The new in-game browser and all the people on the forums yelling "OMGOMGOMG I'm posting from the IGB!"
  • The new and improved Fleet interface.
  • The new and improved EVE-mail.
  • The new look of the UI which is a lot easier on the eyes, IMHO.
  • An arty-fit Tempest with meta3 guns hitting for over 10000 HP damage O_O
  • A faction-fit/rigged Dramiel going 9850 m/s.
  • Seeing tons of people in some of my usually quiet channels and actually chatting for a change.
  • The fact that as the new sovereignty system takes hold there will be more people out mining and ratting in 0.0 than ever before..... >:)

The only thing that bugs me:

The Jukebox. Yes you can now play your own playlists, but getting to them is a bitch (no browse button). And anyway, I'm sure CCP wasted a lot of time there that could have been spent elsewhere.

But all in all a very good expansion. Thanks CCP for your great work!

Not sure tracking can keep up with that. :-)

Oh I had no intention to take it into combat; I just built it cuz I'm a speed freak :)
