They may play around in eve a little. But if any of them REALLY played eve they would know what a cluster f*ck it has become and fix the god damn thing alreadyEvil or Very Mad

Actually I see many have played as long or longer than I. Not to surprising but if you've been here you'd know that EVE is far from the disaster that it so painfully and regularly gets painted as by disgruntled forum monkeys.

Sadly the thing most holders of bad ideas seem to cling to is that their minor complaint is somehow worlds ending for the rest of us.

Anyway I always suspected that the devs played, how could you not, it's EVE.

If thats it 15/250 CCP employees its a very poor showing TBH. I bet CCP doesnt listen to you guys either because there busy listening to the majority who dont have a clue.

talk about pessimistic. If you're assuming that every ccp employee who plays replied in this thread you fail at common sense

I've been playing since early 2004. I've done everything from mining to get everyone in my corp into a battleship to alliance warfare in 0.0, merc alliance/corp running empire contracts, running my own corporation. Recently I have been running reaction POSs.

Just stealing the thread here.

Okay, so now it's been proved that you guys are playing the game along with your customers. But how about identity? I know your not allowed to reveal yourself as CCP Employees (Or are you) - But are there some that know about your characters? Have you ever just been found out? And what to do then? Do you delete and make a new or what do you do?

As a part of our internal rules then CCP staff is not to engage in grief play of any kind and stay firmly away from any 'gray areas' in their game play.

I find it really funny that while many of you seem to have experience from 0.0 alliance life, none of you clearly stated that you're currently involved in real 0.0 alliance life.

Would explain a lot if that was the case. ^_^

Oh come on. Yeah, sure the CCP devs are totally gonna pipe up and say "Yeah 5 of us lead a major 0.0 alliance in Fountain". Rolling Eyes

Been playing since early 2004. Small, medium and large scale PVP (from pirating to fleet battles and everything in between). I've never done any industry stuff though so between my 3 characters I have 750sp in industry total, out of a total of approximately 200mil sp.

I don't really have the time to actively play anymore but I do keep up with skilltraining religiously and once in a while I'll go and roam a bit, but not as much as I'd want to.

Pfffft. You might not be on the official ccp payroll but you will always be a ccp employee to us. I mean at least your web services run flawlessly unlike a certain official forums I sometimes poast in. Razz

Jee wizz, I love how many of CCP are carebears. Either have to be carebears or not play to not realize how ****ed up nullsec is! amirite or amirite? No wonder the CCP pewer's rarely play or quit.

Also, C/D That Devs/GM's aren't allowed to have Supercaps pl0x

maybe some of these GM's that 'apparently' play the game should answer petitions, or at least put a petition in when something with the game go's wrong and read your reply

I've been playing since early alpha, some 10+ years without a break. I've tried almost every aspect of the game and love to chop and change my play styles when I get bored. I've done the whole large Corporation/Alliance 0.0 stuff and the Empire Missions/Industry, so yeah I play ;) every day with my 3 accounts.

Started playing in May 2004 mostly just doing carebear stuff before moving to Curse and beginning life in 0.0.

Former CEO of two large corporations which were both pretty much 0.0 entities and part of big alliances. My main was retired when I joined CCP in 2007 but since then I have trained three other characters to 40-50 mil SP and nowadays I hang around low sec areas or run an odd mission in Empire when needs must.

I much prefer going around in smaller ships (Curse, Ishtar, Vagabond) and seeing if I can have a bit of fun. Win sometimes and lose other times but that is the way of the world.

I still log in pretty much every day.

I've been playing since 2006, I do wormhole exploration, nullsec PvP and then earn all the ships I lost back with my carebear chars. I love small fleet fights in nullsec.

In a thread that proves many CCP employees play and have played for some years, I now want to reference the majority of whiners that complain about the issues in Eve.

Think about this. They are aware of issues as they have experienced them. They are in fights where the lag monster as caused problems and they do work with the really crappy UI as we do. No doubt they have CTS (carpal tunnel syndrome) as some of us do cos of PI and the main reason they love eve is because of the people.

At times, dear reader, your comments are not the most productive.

I would love it if you became more of the solution - constructively

That is all

Hell yeah I play EVE. I've been addicted since 2006. One of the reasons I came to CCP was because Fallout threatened me with bodily harm if I didn't, er I mean because I love playing the game Laughing. I usually spend a few hours after dinner in front of the PC probing down exploration sites or running through low sec running away from fights I go there to find.

<shamelessplug>I don't know if you are on Twitter but you can follow me there, http://twitter.com/CCP_Zymurgist, as I will sometimes tweet about my adventures while playing the game.</shamelessplug>

who is ur toon cos i wanna shoot him!?
