You can trust Arkanon and Morpheus from IA to watch over this quite carefully indeed.


But who watches THEM!?!!!??!?!?!

Glad to see most of you still play tho :)


They watch each other like two Illuminati bent on controlling the world. Like Randolph and Mortimer from Trading Places.

Or, kinda like Night Owl worries about Rorschach and Rorschach worries about everyone else. Yes, they are definitely like Rorschach...

In all seriousness they are super professional Tech 4 warriors for the sanctity of EVE's sandbox. They have the respect of everyone around them for a reason.

It seems like the majority of the dev's/GM's do enjoy playing the game, I'm sure they also have issues with it just like the rest of us. One question I would like to ask is what are some of the dev's/GM's opinions about Incarna and DUST514? Do you think its a good idea to devote so many resources to these two things, when resources could be spent elsewhere fixing issues in game. Personally I can't wait for Incarna, walking in stations sounds like a very good addition to what EVE currently is. However I don't like the idea of DUST514, EVE really isn't meant to be invaded by the masses of 14 year old Call of Duty players.

Better to sell two different products to 700,000 people than one product to 350,000.

Is this the tread that ever had more CCP people posting ?

If not I think its near the mark.

As so many important issues normally dont have a single CCP post one must wonder why.

Is it for PR after letting us know that the game wont change for at least 1 and a half years?

Are you guys felling guilty somehow about it or was it management that felt it was good for you to show how much you love the game?

Bol*ox. If you guys actually played the game you promote so well, you would have told the Management how much of a **** up there making by pushing for additional content before fixing the many issues in the current build.

CCP are going to hire team players not primadonnas spending 30% of the time ranting, 30% banned, and the rest e-peen warrioring.

Also if their recruiters are good, they are going to look for substance first, not for titles. Most titles are worth trash outside of the country they are released in, plus some professions are new enough that some guys are working without any title.

I.e. I have ZERO degrees in computer science yet I am programming for a living since before the '90s and keeping constantly updated about new technologies (that are not just marketing vaporware ofc).

What The Flying Frack ???

CCP officially condoning/supporting what is considered by many of the low sec denizens to be an "exploit" Are you fracking kidding me ??

First we get to hear from the CSM CCP isn't gonna be doing any devolpment or improvements to the game it self (including low sec, which by their own admission is borked and has been for whatever deity you subscribe to knows) for over 18 months, next we get a dev no-less condoning or even promoting questionable tactics, that could be considered exploits (by some)?

Really, i mean what the flying frack ?

Tbh he is inded correct, if u wanna move a "large" ship safe in 0.0 and you donīt have standings with people you will indeed need a MWD and a cloak, or your certainly screwed.

But still you might get unlucky by a fast (closeby) ceptor pilot that decloaks/bump you and then point you.

Lowsec people don't decide if something is an exploit or not....
You could see this as a confirmation that it is NOT an exploit :D

Not necessarily :D

Considering the high quality fittings used in the live events, I really don't see your point Wink


Probably because if they would have a real fit people in this thread (and forums) would go 'waahh CCP giving free goodies to pirates waahhhh!!' and 'waaahh!! CCP killed my pimped faction ship waaahhh!!' every time someone would kill or get killed by actors on those live events.
So to avoid the inevitable baby cries it's better to fit those ships cheap then deal with whiners at every turn, hell don't think I've ever met as much whiners about game play (or features) issues except in EVE-O forums. Rolling Eyes Evil or Very Mad

He wasn't talking about using faction loot. To use a real fit you don't need to use faction goodies.

You just need to be competent.

The CCP fits were not competent. :P

Wasn't aware this was considered an exploit. These low sec "denizens" you speak of, are they per chance teed off gatecampers thinkking they're entitled to masacre everything that passes through their gatecamps?

lol united.

As a "low sec denizen" I want to make it clear that you don't speak for me. Further, you are in position to declare what is or is not an exploit. MWD+cloak trick has been around for ages, it's been widely documented, and the one time it was nerfed it was recognized as a bug and re-enabled in a few days.

Besides, it's about as hard to counter as it is to kill a stabbed smartbombing battleships camping a pipe system. Would you consider that an exploit too? Thought as much.

I can't say for sure that they're incompetent, but the fits damn sure make it seem that way. So, +1 to Intigo's ranting again. Dammit. IMO events should be difficult - throw some minor faction on the carriers, fit them properly, and make a serious go of ****ing people up in a highsec carrier!

Tbh, and I am not trolling, this was one of the more interesting post's I've read in awhile. Gives an insight into CCP and the mindset of the people working there even if it is an incomplete view.

Good Read Very Happy
