Kristjan Tuxford is the man responsible for turning up the Heat in EVE Online, and he and CCP working to improve this underused game mechanic. Heat, a system designed to allow more advanced players to essentially overclock modules for greater performance at the risk of a random assessment of damage due to cumulative heat, has gotten very mixed reviews from EVE players. At present, players can only repair heat damage by docking at a station – impractical especially for players doing the dirty work deep in null sec. With the stipulation that nothing's been decided on yet, Tuxford presented a series of changes are coming that may make Heat a more attractive option for all players.
