CCP started something, told us all they would see it through, and stopped working on it halfway finished.

... this is new to you?

when noah did it 2 years ago he answers every question on his own and produced 10 pages of answers by himself.

He limited it to one or 2 questions per poster. That's is exactly what they should of done this time.

Well in some update they promised to still answer to every single question, but take timeout and do it when they got time again.

So... lets just give 'em few more weeks.

If the op hasnt noticed, we had a huge patch last week which broke everything and then some. Now what would you like the devs to do, answer all the questions or work on fixing things?

1.) they need days off too.
2.) yes, it's E3 on Monday (tomorrow morning)
3.) coffee imports have slowed down some. (this is a false statement)

If you missed it... here's a pretty good place to ask your questions about FW.

I have not in fact forgotten about this thread (I gaveth my word!), but hopefully the above (which I knew was coming) will get some answers I can repost here for you.



Originally by: CCP Manifest
In case ya'll missed the "ASK EVE" thread response...there's no need to bump. It'll come shortly after Soundwave returns from Russia and we can sit down together. I told you I can't quit you!

You've been patient for this long...just a week or so longer please.

They got busy.

And it probably takes a good bit of time to research some of the answers. If they get an answer wrong, they'll be lambasted for not knowing their own game.

Personally, I think they bit off a bit more than they realized by promising to answer all the questions. However, I'm still glad that they're doing it, and I do appreciate the effort involved.

Some more answers were posted last week; we're working on getting the rest for you.

The CSM summit and the two recent patches took quite some time from the team working on the answers, but we'll provide them, as promised.

See now that's how you do it. You don't write a paragraph for a question about what kind of beer you like. He answers every single question in just 2 pages.

Yes it was nice to see the real issues covered by CCP Abraxas in last weeks update like RP Stuff and are you allowed to drink beer at work.

These are the questions people want answered, the ones with no effect on future gameplay. Neutral

Edit: Well the Beer thing kinda effects future gameplay, but still!

Well Abrax´ is kinda the RP guy, so not really as bad answers as you make them.

Though I REALLY hope these damn beer **** questions WILL be ignored by the next dev.
What ****ing fanbois ask this **** anyway?

The problem is, if CCP take too long answering all the questions, they will all be outdated anyway and people will have a whole new bunch of questions. It has already taken over a month...

I would hazard a guess that the big flamefest, (which involved burning down the forums weekend before last), might have had something to do with it. That and the release of Incarna.

Everyone is waiting on the minutes of the May Summit to come out so they do not say something difrentTwisted Evil.

Plus the last week everyone has been on lock down.
Hopefuly we will see something later this week.
When it happens I see like 3 pages of answers at once. They are probably all stuck in a inbox some whereSmile.

You're grasping at straws. The devs have pretty much stopped answering the questions long before the crap hit the fan. This became just another symptom of the situation that led to the player revolt.

Looks like we have to bump this to the front page like the second ship design tread until they get cracking on answering those questions.

So here it goes (again), hope it won't last 72 days as the earlier mentioned thread.

Bump.Neutral
