By making this thread I'm not presupposing the people at CCP are alcoholics. I'm just putting forward the issue so that the situation can be discussed and developed. So I'm not going to make a case that they are or aren't

Suggestion that they are -
Chronically late, development seems to be abnormally delayed on all things. Example- WiS

Potential cause of alcohol abuse -
They live on a volcanic rock and survive on rotten sharks washed up from Japan

Rotten shark and Brennivin are for the foreigners / tourists

The natives are living it up, drinking fine wine and eating Whale steak daily!

What´s the point? Half of the population of eve behave like being drunk/on drugs (in game and especially on the forums), so why should the developers be so much different? Could be wrong, though. Or not.

Now I feel like moving to Iceland.

I need a few vital questions answered first, though:

Hákarl, what does it taste like? Is it anything like Swedish Surströmming or Norwegian Lutefisk?

What are the main differences between Brennivín and Brćndevin? I like Brćndevin, and assume the transition will be rather smooth.

"Compulsive and repetitive use may result in tolerance to the effect of the drug and withdrawal symptoms when use is reduced or stopped."

~From the Tubes

So two things.

1 They aren't relaxing enough due to the built up tolerance.

2 If they stop the shakes will overtake them and nothing will get done.

Solution: Stronger booze.

No it's not I don't think. But the page says it's associated with alcoholism and often drank as a chaser after eating putrefied shark flesh.

So if the CCP dev's gave you this it adds a lot to the discussion.

You should check that map again.. if that thing travels north and through the bering sea/bering strait/arctic ocean it's not that far Wink

The level of craftsmanship that CCP shows with their flagship product should give you all the answers you need.

Its associated with alcoholism because its exceptionally cheap in iceland, at least compared to other sources of inebriation. Something to do with it being a traditional drink, its not taxed so heavily. Its also alcoholic enough to effectivly smash your brains out with a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick. I'll have to get less tattoos next year so I can drink heavily without bleeding like a squeezed sponge and actually try some.

Also Hakarl is by far the worst thing I have ever put in my mouth, I swear I can still taste it and I had it like two months ago Crying or Very sad

Since most Western corporate management is afflicted by severe cases of "steamboat mouth, rowboat arse", CCP should be considered no different.

On the contrary, the reduction of downtime to an almost clockwork 30 minutes daily is a boon I'd thought I'd never see.

So, analysis of CCP's performance as a result of personal behaviors of its employees is specious Organizational Psychology, to say the least.
