Recently, Eve Online introduced an ongoing event where some form of evil outside force is combating the world, and the players can join in and fight for either side. This happens in PVP areas especially, driving a lot of conflict. This supposedly has permanent ramifications and consequences for the world. Honestly, that's where I thought the whole cabalists sieging towns and cities was going, in this game. Instead that was never completed, was dumbed down, and is now trivial. When we're talking about changing direction of the game, that's what I'm hoping for. Not more decorations, or classes, or minigames.
