World of Tanks... at least they can do Sov warfare right... and admit that giant fights aren't possible at the time... and invest in better servers... and correctly do a pay to play game.

How would you translate WoT Clan Warfare into the EVE persistent world? Address the issues of manufacturing capital and supercapital ships, planting Cyno beacons, jump bridges, territorial upgrades.

CCP does not take criticism well and often ignores retrospectives. Criticism is considered to be a negative attitude and is severely frowned upon. A lot of effort goes into maintaining a good morale with a lot of internal PR. After all itís cheaper to print posters than pay an average salary to employees.

Several years now CCP has predicated insane subscriber goals that cannot be met. Naturally this is met with scepticism by the employees but it falls on deaf ears. The result is that the company is suffering because we cannot sustain the development of EVE, DUST and WOD. EVE is not creating enough revenue which means that solutions are sought, solutions that CCP was vehemently against a few years ago.

Career progression is nonexistent unless you become friends with the right clique of people and use the right corporate buzzwords. Hard work is not something that will set you apart, most people work hard until they become so disillusioned as they realise it makes no difference and slack off.

Combine this with the below average pay (CCP pays 30% to 50% less than other companies) and youíll often hear a lot of frustration when work is discussed outside of the office by people who have been here for some time. The longer you stay the less you start to care about the game you develope, because no one else does.


Sounds like just about every programming job I've had. The pay sucks and the company has no ability to attract customers, the management is bloody-minded, there's very little employee satisfaction, and staff work too hard and blame management :)

For the moment I have a comfy job where I program about 12 lines of polished code each day. I'm not happy, but I'm comfortable.

Now take the usual scenario of programmers being younger people with fancy ideas about how much money they're worth, recast the opinions expressed in Glassdoor in that light, and you get to understand that things at CCP must be just about the same as most other programming houses. Amplify that by the butthurt felt by the young programmers heading off to Iceland with stars in their eyes about how wonderful the country is and how lovely it would be to be paid to program a game, only to find out that programming a game is really hard.

Yeah, Glassdoor is about what I'd expect to hear from people who are disillusioned enough to feel like venting about it.

Can I get a crimson smoking jacket and long cigar-holder to go with the monocle I ridicule yet secretly covet?

A month (and change) later and what have we gotten in response to legitimate customer outrage at a colossal failure by CCP to be honest and competent? A non-apology apology and a bunch of lies from CSM that they've already reneged on.

I'm curious why SWG's playerbase had a spine (when NGE hit) whereas EVE's playerbase doesn't (when Incarna hit.) Any thoughts on that?

I'd speculate that a big difference is that NGE was only 2 years post-launch whereas Incarna+P2W is 8 years post-launch. Incarna+P2W is a greater betrayal, in that sense, but the customers are that much more addicted already so they're less willing to tell CCP "Yippee ki-yay mother****ers."

Would you PLEASE go play with yout "No More Tears" Barbie and quit whining.

If you hate this game so much, PLEASE leave...

It's VERY sad.
