CCP Navigator;
This wouldn't be as hot a topic if we could get an explanation as to why CCP Abathur's very well received ideas were discarded two and a half weeks before Dominion, without announcement (somebody noticed it on Sisi), and have been replaced by CCP Nozh with very.... different... ideas.


You got that answer between the blue lines some time ago in a previous feedback thread to a previous devblog.

Players do not decide game design changes.

In a way that is correct, but since CCP adopted SCRUM it might be an idea to get the manual and look up the concept and impact of the stakeholder group in SCRUM development.

Effectively speaking what you see here is clear display of CCP not implementing SCRUM except for the little tasks, once it hits the big picture level they are still bumping into the old syndrome of little kingdoms making the kind of arbitrary decisions which in the past have already led to major upheavals.

This entire Dominion patch is the definition of "Excellence." The type of excellence that SOE would be proud of, but in this case you've taken changes that the playerbase were generally happy with, then 2 weeks before the changes completely redid them. Even when SOE pushed out NGE they could at least say it was a bad idea from the start that killed their game, whereas you've taken a lot of good changes and turned them into garbage to try to torpedo your big expansion.

This is now shaping up into an excellently horrible update in which you overpromised and apparently are going to way under deliver, what with pushing assfrigs back as well and nerfing the titan bonus changes which actually would have had them on the field in big fights. Everything Nozh has done has been excellent if your goal is to throw away every positive change you made with super caps.

Oh no... at least please give the Motherships the HP boost and leave everything else intact until CCP finally decides about how to improve it! Mad

Many people have payed years on this game for specific accounts to run motherships on top of their other main accounts. They cannot take these characters, leave their ships and go off and play around in a recon ship or battleship. Now CCP is releasing a patch where faction ships are superior to motherships and titans can go up to motherships and go BOOM to them with their giant lasers.. And we are supposed to just stick around expect to pay our sub fees for 6 months while CCP pays this? No CCP should be offering mothership owners free subscriptions for the next 6 months or however long it takes for them to fix this since CCP is now making their accounts/ships totally useless in the in-game environment. That or refund refund peoples sub fees for their super capital characters entirely as well as the isk invested in the supercapitals themselves.

Over the years SOE and CCP have always had two things in common: Incompetence at game balance and cheating developers.

This is just keeping the trend alive.

At fanfest, CCP made a big production about how their new corporate rallying cry for this year was 'Excellence'. They showed videos and even had that delightful little rap-rock "HTFU" thing proclaiming their solidarity as a company and the quality of their work.

Does someone who does not comprehend basic aspects of capital warfare - or even ewar mechanics - being in charge of the capital dev portfolio represent CCP's 'Excellence'?

As much as I'd like to simply post lil dude and talk about how wonderful - or shall I say 'excellent' CCP Abathurs changes were - how delightful it was to see a transparent, two-way feedback process between devs and players on Sisi - this blog forces the question.

Where's the excellence?


An excellent company would sit down, put a team on capitals and work every night until dominion to give motherships a role this patch, give titans a reason to exist, fix capital missiles, and figure out how to not break the naglfar.

Lets see what ccp does. I hope it doesn't involve target painting.

He and you missed something.

The "excellence focus" was the "post Dominion" focus, when CCP starts to develop more products within the EVE universe, interconnected yet seperate commercial products, leaving less time and resources for EVE, and thus the switch to less large expansions with less extensive feature sets but with a higher focus on the quality of those feature sets.

This was the manager talk about "EVE Forever". EVE will continue, but since they will expand on product lines it will receive less attention and focus then thusfar. To compensate for that they will continue to deliver free expansions, just smaller ones, with less stuff, but small pieces of good shiny which will be introduced "perfect".

"During the development of Dominion we have been looking at the whole of capital ship warfare and in particular the Motherships--reviewing their place on the battlefield and our goals for them as designers. We're unhappy with the role they currently occupy in practice and after much deliberation and testing we aren't happier with the direction we were taking them as anti-capital Supercarriers. In too short a time we've redesigned a ship class that doesn't have a unique enough role or serve a diverse enough purpose. These are massive ships that require amazing amounts resources to produce. They are part of the power equation of EVE's unique and important Alliance Warfare. As designers we need to do is take a few steps back, deliberate more (with your help), go through more testing (also with your help) and really perfect the Mothership redesign."

There. Underlined the important parts. That explains all your questions, just not in the way you want.


Wow english as a second language failure.

Do you see answers in there? Is it like one of those magic eye things where you have to stare at asteroids in empire long enough before you see it?

What I get from that is ...

"We're * inappropriate text removed - CCP Ildoge unhappy with motherships past, present and future"
<audience demands to know why>
*shrugs and walks off the stage*

Go back to your mining in empire and let the big kids discuss this important aspect of our game.

Dear CCP,

First off, I am interested to find out whether or not this post gets deleted because someone deemed it unconstructive. Let's find out, shall we?

This expansion of yours is not going well, is it? I mean, things get cut, developers out of their official league and a united playerbase opposing the new shiny.

I am impressed the basic DENY, DENY, DENY is still in existence. Historically, book burning is not viewed as an impressive fiat. (Yes, I did, thanks for wondering.) Is this expansion roll out locked in? Do you absolutely have to do it? I mean, by my admittedly terrible understanding of this game, all the positives in Dominion have been culled and idiocies thrashed in to replace them, to take their place alongside all the other idiocies.

Bluntly, at this point, you have nothing positive to show for your expansion. Nothing to point to and proclaim, "WE FIXED THAT!" Are all your current developers tenured? Are your offices awash with golden handcuffs?

This expansion has been blighted by ideas that bear no resemblance to current or projected playability. I can only surmise that you want to be the laughingstock of MMOs. Truly, your ability to make the same mistakes over and over again leaves me astounded, astonished, bewildered and impressed. Even I'm not that dense and I have a whole pile of breathtaking stupid to call my own.

Ideally, you should delay the expansion while you sort out elbow from anus. Maybe that isn't possible, we all of us have restrictions. Good God though, you can certainly manage to swap out Nozh for someone with a basic understanding of capitals and above and the way they are used.

Take a quick look back at your eve history - has deny, deny, deny worked for you?

I can only hope that there are people in the company who already pointed out the flaws that we, the playerbase, are pointing out and being censored for. Feel free to censor or fire those employess as well, unless you are determined to add hypocrisy to censorship. This is an internet game, after all, it's not like this might spill over to other parts of the internet that you cannot censor.

Above all, LEARN. You keep seeming to learn and then you go and do something like this.

Honest question, would you, theoretical employee of CCP, put up with this treatment?

Explain why should we?

Hello everyone,

While we all appreciate that this is a very hot topic item...


This is not a "hot topic". Hot topic implies a topic with two strong sides like, say, abortion. What you have here is more like the topic of pedophilia or mass genocide. You have almost everyone fervently against it, and then you have the few people that are very misguided/messed up in the head.


Also, if Nozh really wants to work on moms more, how about he gives us his word he and his team will start, immediately after Dominion hits, working with us in a well-communicated, transparent fashion, to get them "right" by, say, the new year. If it isn't done by then, ok, but at least we will have been working on it, not having every mom pilot in eve logged off until the mystical date when CCP decides to look at them again.

P.S. I'm still waiting for you to "look again" at the Deimos, the other highly problematic ship that had buffs dropped at the 11th hour.

No, you have to punch through the marketing and executive talk.

They will maintain EVE, deliver expansions, but those will be smaller but better (although just going by features of Dominion that truly survive I wonder how small yet shiny such new expansions will have to be).
Excellence has nothing to do with the expansion, but all with the marketing. Call it painting the house shiny, but it's just an appartment so it is easier and quicker to paint.

What have we learned today?

The angry voice of the EvE community was heared and granted motherships are shelved for 3-12 months but, they are still a symbol of pride and elitism.

Of course now every mom pilot is going to run and hide from titans, unless there is another hp buff that we miss.

Personally I would rather have them shelved rather than being butchered.

I do have mixed feelings though about this decision, I am sad that we wont to see scarey moms of doom out on the field, but I am also glad nothing was taken away from pilots honor from this.

just scrap Dominion or even Eve-Online. Every time ya'll have some oen that know what they are doing you change personal and make this game more like SWG or WOW. At least let some one how starts something finish it and have it implamented before you take him else where and scrap all the good changes he is amking and leave all the have thought through ones. CCP has been up untill this point found ways to make eve better to keep ppl comign intot he game and playing and enjoying the game. now it looks like it is goign to be another yr before they might as well shut down because of hte incompadence and idiocy of a NEW Dev.
With the lack of thought going into these changes and implimenting some and not others and makign things usless after tons of isk been put into them. Time, ISK and resources drive eve online. You make changes that make it not worth ppls time to build pilot nada use things in eve the eve econamy is goign to slow down to crash and what then? Blame the pilots caues they are not flying ships ect.

You have taken ships that were powerfull and nurfed them to useless chunks a ton of timesa nd I think ppl would have figured by now ya'll would have learned something but apaently not.

I could care less about shiney. I care a million times more about gameplay. Drop us back a few pretty levels, and fix the multitude of bugs/errors/balancing issues. I remember reading 50% of devs are devoted to developing new content. Here's a crazy idea..put 100% of devs into fixing the current system WITHOUT ADDING A SINGLE NEW FEATURE. Make your internal code pretty, make it easy to expand and understand. While you're doing this, have your developers spend 1 hour a day (minimum) in a top 15 0.0 alliance as a line grunt. No dev powers on those toons, have your IA team watch them, and have them play the game we all do.


You want to know why Visual Studio became the IDE it is today? Microsoft had to use it on a day to day basis when they restructured their engineering department. It went from being a steaming pile to what it is today (half way good) in very short order. Play your own game if you're gonna develop for it, so you know what is actually going on.

The initial part of your post is flawed, where you mentioed mom pilots even logging in. There is zero point to them even trying to now, since they'll still be fragile and useless ships in dominion that they are today, only now with a new predator--as if they needed even less motivation to log in.

Personally, I'd be surprised if those characters were even subbed after this.

Quote:
The new version of the Citadel Torpedo follows the same trend as other unguided missiles. The explosion velocity is slightly higher than that of the Citadel Cruise Missiles (or 2250) which means target painters will have to be utilized in many situations to achieve full damage potential. They do considerably more damage than their missile counterparts, with reduced range and velocity.


22 pages almost and I still can't stop laughing about that logical argument according to Capital Ship Warfare.
This is like someone who harvested apples and is selling them as peaches at the market. Only the dumbest will fall for it.

Please, explain me please please please what did you think when you wrote up that dev blog? Did anyone revise it? If yes, blame him too.
For extra clarification:

Target Painter + sieged dread = no go
Target Painter + triaged carrier = no go
Target Painter + Mothership = no go
Target Painter + Titan = no go

Target painter + moving dread = less damage
Target Painter + moving Carrier = less damage

Mind explaining when Target Painters actually help me in Capital ship fights?

And ever brought into consideration when you have a ragnarok with the capital fleet which reduces the signature of capitals by up to 37.5%?

Please, explain!

Thank you in advance

cheers

P.S.: Free Abathur! He knows what he is doing...

not to nitpick but I find it pretty questionable that any alliance... well at least in the top 5-10 could function properly and survive using only the tools that CCP provides and can monitor.

Serious post: Did nobody kind of look over this thing and say, "Hey, man, you can't targetpaint POS modules or sieged/triaged capitals." I mean it isn't like Nozh is running a one man show here, somebody had to bring this up at some point, right?

Unless this is really just a big troll like I was saying before.


Obviously you don't realize how ******ed CCP is....


i must have been a sleep here i was thinking we where in november not april. no its not april 1st. we're not having our leg pulled.

ok ccp i would like, no i think the word should be we would like to know the following

Q - why did you allow months of testing to go on and giving everyone all level 5 toons just to say nope not going to happen?
A - cos it was a PR stunt you could claim you worked with the player base to make these change to keep players happy
Q - take a ship that was useless and give if the buff it needed the once the player that fly it where happy change it back again
A - once again started off as a PR stunt that went wrong i bet there is a ton of ms in the build process atm
Q - what do you think to the player base ideas
A - there only good for money why wase time on there ideas, we know what we are doing and how target painters work
Q - why is there so little reply from you guys is it cos you dug a whole you can't get out of?
A - once again all the players are good for is money we don't care about them
Q - why did you post a dev blog after a week with so many mistakes
A - cos we could it not like the players are worth anything.

with the above in mind i am happy that the changes nozh made will not hit TQ this is twice he has changed the carriers and or motherships and failed due to the player base 1st time being with zulupark.

also a video for you nozh a video for you to watch Linkage yes it is old but i coud find more but i like this video, once you watch this video you will notice they are all with in about 10km of each other.

to ccp nozh why did you make the changes and not do a dev blog??

btw i don't think i'll get a reply i think he will just stay away from the forums cos he know that it was worng.

ok now time for what ms should be

1 - hp incess yes to counter the titan dd
2 - jump range incress good idea allows movement with fleet easyer
3 - 20 fighter/drones 15 fighter bombers would be ok
4 - none docking this give carriers a role
5 - none triage this is due to the ship now being a dps ship

i personal feel the best way forward if you are to keep the mother ships the same would be to talk yes telk to the pilots of these ships easy way is to do this would be an eve voice you could do it 1 group at a time maybe 30-40 at a time and see and publish what each group details to you. you could also add in the builders to this. i'm sure you have the tools to do this.

as to the other capitals changes how about this players vs devs, devs must agree no cheating inc no spamming faction/office mods all t2 and implants that can be got on tq are ok, and to fraps there side and publish it i am willing to put all standings a side and work with goons just to show you how capitals work. this can be on sisi if you like.

also you can't targetpaint POS modules or sieged/triaged capitals nor super capitals

i can't belive this once again i'm agreeing with goons. eve is ending

Having spent my time reading the drivel in the latest dev blog, I sit back and stare vacantly at the screen for a minute.
I struggle to comprehend how someone with the knowledge of a chipmonk about caps and supercaps gets placed in charge. He has basically dropped his trousers and taken a great dirty dump all over the hard work and excellent ideas that were originally proposed and later balanced on the test server.

"My limited knowledge of cap fights, i see they dont happen at short range often" HELLO! Please go back to school and learn to read again you gigantic ****. Ask the alliance formerly known as BoB at what ranges they dropped! Ask Nync from RoL what range he hotdrops at! Ask any of the large cap flee alliances what range they attack other caps at and you will get pretty much the same answer: POINT BLANK!!! Any child could have done some simple research before opening his mouth and spewing out garbage about cap fights not happening like this.

Currently, motherships are abysmal piles of crap. You can kill one with a dozen BS quite easily. Even you admit they need a lot of work! Well, guess what, someone put some serious thought into it. At the bare minimum, you NEED re-add the HP buffs to TQ. The other changins including fighter bombers could wait until you develop some better ideas or a brain capable of some logical thought.

In fact, take this idiot away from caps and supercaps as he obviously has no idea what is going on. I am surprised he even plays this game. Implement the hard work abathur was paid for.
