if yes...hahahaha...best read in a long long time, its like back in business school again (aka how to ripp your customers off without them noticing).

if not, still very funny, enjoyed the quotes and persona-descriptions.

Linkage


Quotes i liked:

"Right now you can store 50 personal fittings..., thats more than enough for the average EVE player..., why not be able to add more storage for a small amout of money?" - EVE Lead Game Designer

"We're going to face an uphill struggle, and the reason many of us never talk about this publically is that we'd be burned at the stake by the players" - EVE Lead Game Designer

"...i think that's prett goddamn cool, and i'm not entirely sure why that makes me ****** to some EVE players" - EVE Lead Game Designer (a tip Mr, if you feel noone understands you, maybe its you)

"Giving people small amounts of micro-currency for beeing loyal subscribers, or even as a reward for high level gameplay like taking sovereignty..." - EVE Lead Game Designer (lol this quote made my day, you wan't to pay me for taking sov, like the russians do?)

From plain text: "...: we give players the means to buy stuff in addition to their base subscription, offering things like new "nano-paints", that allow one to customize ships while docked; new articles of virtual clothing, tattoos, and other avatar customizations, tokens for customizing Captain's Quarters and so on."

"Not all virtual purchases will focus on customization, some will simply be new items, ammunition, ships, etc. that can be purchased outright."

"First, we don't want to glut the virtual market with too many items...instead we want to provide a steady stream of digestible goods and services over a long period of time..."

"One other service we're looking at is selling faction standings. We want to offer convenience"...(hahaha)

"Incarna cannot be considered a product distinct from other parts of EVE. Incarna and flying in space are merely aspects of EVE...in virtual sales we must all adopt this way of thinking. Thus we will not and cannot focus on virtual sales only within the Incarna evironment, nor build that evironment around such sales, rather we will effect a universal strategy of micro-sales throughout the EVe experience.

Dust: "...to offset the cost of freeloading spectators Dust will have a nominal cover charge..." (i love it when you speak dirty)

Dust: "With no subscriptions in DUST, we have to be careful about selling permanent awsomeness, as there's a danger of saturating the market. When everyone has everything, there's no reason to buy anything anymore. ...(obsolescence referring to the deliberate shortening of a product's lifespan)"

Dust: "Selling 'weapons' for real money is very tempting. ...we are planning on doing so...but the real reason is that we have strong evidence that selling performance enhancers, in moderation, works."

"At a more detailed level, virtual goods sales give a direct, unmistakable line of feedback into what players want....this puts preassure on uns to develop things players actually use, in a way that a sub-based model doesn't" (yes, and thats why you will focus on MT items and not other features anymore)

WoD: "...there are three main areas that virtual goods sales will focus on in the game: cosmetics, items of convenience and items of power."

WoD: "Merit-driven items are locked from purchase until the player achieves specific criteria, hence having to earn the item as well as pay money for it" (this is just great, haha)

Quote: "The question of virtual goods sales is not 'to do ore not to do', rather 'how do we do this' (yep, we know by now, thx for confirmation)

CCP has confirmed, its real

If not fake, at least I know my subscription will end soon enough.
Islandic morons

Ok I read it all, and it definitly looks legit and real.
Kristoffer Touborg, you'd deserve something really, really bad happening to you, and firs of, being banned from CCP for being such an idiot. Dunno which business school you went too, but my guess is you were smoking weed way too much during your classes.


What an idiot I was to actually think CCP was still concerned by the quality of their gaming experience... They care about money, nothing else.
Time for me to look for another game.

The thing about it is that the quotes coming out of this are exactly in line with what's being said and done by CCP for the last little while... it has to be real?



Ed: Turns out the full unedited version has been released: Full unedited version from CCP

It's pretty rude to discuss/quote a CCP leaked document on their own forums.

Just sayin'

CCP can you comment on this controversy?

Edit: While I never open any leaked documents the things posted on this thread are rather disturbing. Especially considering the recent actions taken by the biz department.

That PDF contains what may be the most obnoxious font I've ever encountered, anywhere.

That said, it is probably the all new CCP font that they'll use everywhere in game.

If it were real it wouldn't have so many horrible spelling and grammar errors. (the article in the link)

Virtual goods sales are a hot topic these days, and more and more companies are moving toward them, CCP included. If handled well, virtual goods sales are far from a grey money-grab that impoverishes the players.


Well, that's a pretty big if. Spoiler alert; you failed right there and then.

Since it's pretty much in line with what we have witnessed the past two years or so, I'd say it's legit. Furthermore sources close to CCP have confirmed this to be the real deal.

EN24 are known for not proofreading their articles. The question here is whether or not the .pdf is genuine or not.
*Why* it had to go in a passworded .RAR file I don't know. No-one has time for this cloak and dagger crap anymore.

that depends entirely on what country he/she resides in. not everywhere in the world law is as bad as in the us.

So all those typos, grammar errors, spelling mistakes in skills, ships, drones, ammo, all these years was fake too?

As to the authenticity of this, who knows. CCP will likely never confirm outwardly.

Mynxee said on twitter she's glad this has gone public. Sounds to me like she believes it is real - maybe for a reason. If this is a fake it is an extremely labor intensive one. It's a real eye opener if it's real.

This is fake, CCP knows as well as we do money for non vanity items has killed every game that has ever tried it. No amount of creeping it in has worked either.

make sense that it would have grammar errors if english is not there mother tongue but used as a universal language within the company for email notes etc.

Kristoffer makes a ****** reference. He should therefore have a 3 day ban placed on his access to the eve servers.
