EVE Online spawns third dev team, CCP details next patch

The next EVE Online update drops next week, and addresses a number of small annoyances.

In a new EVE Insider post, CCP Soundwave revealed that Team Best Friends Forever and Team Pink Zombie Kittens had been disbanded due to an influx of members resulting in groups too large to manage effectively.

Three teams were formed from the developers, rejoining in the appellations of Team Super Friends, Team Game of Drones and Team Five 0.

This news served as an appetiser to a lengthy list of proposed changes, expected in a January 24 patch. Some of the highlights include rebalances to assault ships and null ammo; buffs to Crucible modules (CCP invites you to whine about how overpowered they are); and shift-click to overheat, a small but important change indeed.
