lol.

Who cares if I am or are not? (although I'm honored to be called one). I want EVE to return to it's sandbox mode, which this thread seems to at least halfway try to do.

I also realize personally attacking people isn't going to get anything accomplished except (if you succeed), a gaping hole which is going to be filled by... who? Another micro-transactionist?

Again, this is a direction problem, not an employee problem.

He made Soundwave his *****
and he spoke for the poor.
Stood up to the man
and he gave him what for.

Our love for him now
will forever live on.
The hero of Iceland,
The man they call John.

Please stop resorting to personal attacks. It's not helping your cause if you are permabanned from EVE for using CCP resources to carry out a personal attack.

I don't like micro transactions at all, in any way, shape or form either, but this is a CCP direction problem, not a personal one.

VIVA LA SANDBOX!


OK OK, I'll just post pics of our saviour from now on!

Turbefield for CEO!

Naw, not trying to toot my own horn here, but the previous thread I saw bashing a specific CCP employee was locked.

This thread is a perfect example of everything that is wrong with some of the people that play this game.

It's a sociologists wet dream.

Let's get this straight.

One guy has one opinion that a portion of the players care about (believe me, a much larger portion are unaware of this man's existence)and right away, they deify him. Using not only, modern cultural references (that even I will admit are mostly clever and funny)but also imposing him into much more serious and real tragic world events (which, like it or not, does give some credence to the theory that many "hard core" MMO video game players have a tentative grasp on reality and an inability to understand or to behave by accepted societal morays)they have elevated this poor man onto a pedestal he cannot possibly hope to ever, comfortably sit.

I feel sorry for this man. If this community has demonstrated anything, it is their ability to devour that which they profess to love.

Micro-transactions for anything other than vanity items suck. We all know that. This thread makes us all look demented.

Power of the meme. It's not actually though, epithets and such have been around since forever. It's the idea that's relevant.

A very well written, and quite interesting statement.





I can only speak for myself here, but not for one second during this did I take any of the statements about the coming saint hood of our man seriously, I mean this is more about an expression of peoples emotions. This is a weird time where things seem to be going crazy everywhere you look, I wouldn't be too shocked if I woke up tomorrow to find that the hill people had come and taken Eve in the night.

This looks more like people have found a simple image and message that they can latch on to, so they can express how much they are hurting at the moment whilst also having a lot of fun.

It's about the message not the man.

(Aside from that hail our new leader, your great-grandchildren shall tell stories about this day around a roaring campfire ).

No, you didn't get it straight. Your post is what happens when a college education gets in the way of common sense.

In light of all the rage and anger I've seen on these forums the past 24 hours, the fact that we can still find some levity in it makes me wonder if you're not taking things way too seriously. Stop trying to over-analyze things Freud. Not every psychological maladay was created by adolsecent sexual trauma or an overbearing mother.

Now, fire up photoshop, grab a paint brush and have some cultural reference fun.

And no, I don't think anyone here expects anything from John other than to keep expressing his opinions, which we all happen to agree with at this point.

Its fairly standard policy for CCP to lock and delete all negative feedback from the forums after major patches. Usually they wait a day or two for the rage to die out as actively cleaning up while people are in full rage mode usually just causes more rage.
