Simple request, we’d like in-game bios to be restored their previous storage capacity. Part of the reason for the “lag” created from the bio’s earlier in the game stemmed from the necessity to click on pilots in local to see their standings. Now that is automatically displayed in local and the clicking isn’t necessary. Now people click on pilots because they actually want to know something more about them rather than just checking to see if they are hostile or not. So simple request: can we have bio length restored to initial capability on eve release please.

This also goes onto a request to see maximum length of Eve-mails increased. Can we have this upgraded to a more usable facility? (Perhaps 2-3x the current limitation in text.)

And can we also look at maximum character limit in chat dialogues? Again it would be good to have this increased by 2-3x the limitation.

Eve is a social game and communication between players is the lifeblood. Enhancing communication between players by revising these limits on text inputs will help promote this aspect of the game.

Potential Solutions

If there are still issues with LAG coming from Bios – how about allowing players to upgrade their bio capability by paying ISK? Make having a larger bio a premium (in-game) service to the capsuleer and let them pay ISK for the service. ISK sink + ability to players who want a larger bio to have it.
