That blog is a ****ing joke!!

That blog give no information about the real issue here!!


Seriously, answer this simple question.

That dev blog does not address any of the real issues.

It seems the 'deliberately playing dumb' is also a CCP motto.

Whoa.... that was supposed to be helpful?

I wasn't exactly mad before, just disappointed in CCP for going all EA games.

Now I'm a bit offended, honestly and for the first time in Eve.

Please, please stop dropping the ball and show a little bit of the old CCP spirit.
Come on now. CCP was the company that bought themselves back and did it there own way and was amazing successful.
Please, please don't keep going this way.

I don't even really care about the MT. Sucks, ugly, everything but the CCP I thought I knew could have done a hell of a lot better than this.

Who exactly did you hire recently?
Did the dev's all go to MBA classes or something?
What went wrong?

"We will gradually introduce items at other price points, definitely lower and probably higher than what‘s in the store today"

What I'd like to know is if there will be golden teeth?

Seroisly though get real and adress the issue at hand this is a sidestep from what the real issue is.

1 tiny expansion (incursions)
2 terrible expansions (dominion/tyrannis)

and 1 big F U to the playerbase expansion (incarna).

I think it is safe to say that Zulu's blog did nothing except make blood pressure a bit higher. Don't you have a PR person with a clue? Shouldn't you be running blogs by them first?

Was waiting for an honest reply to actual concerns this is not it unsubing 2 accounts, not waiting around like I did for the SWG NGE to see if things got better.

Perfect response.

At least he knows the saying:

Never argue with an idiot, they'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Too many idiots around at the moment.

Stop drinking so much alcohol. I know it is expensive there in Iceland. You save money and at the same time do you spare us your drunken ideas.

worst CCP response I've read, possibly ever.

You have until August to get your house in order or lose my 4 accounts.

Wow his was your big chance to calm some people down and put out some of the fires... instead you added more fuel by not addressing any of the concerns of the player base.

Good luck to the community managers in facing the even worse **** storm that is going to follow.

THAT was IT? What "concerns" did you actually address there? I must have missed them. I call that attempt to justify the clothes prices and compare them to ACTUAL clothing in real life hilariously inept. You just made things worse by a quantum leap with that chunk of corporate fluff and dribble.

Look: Are you going to sell ammo and ships via MT, yes or no? That's what we need to know.

CCP, your arrogance and ignorance is breathtaking.

Your customers asked for a one word answer to one simple question. You evaded it completely and utterly.

You have one of the most loyal customer-bases of any online service. Whether your customers may like the answer or not is irrelevant, you should at least respect them and give an answer.

Quite astonishing. Good luck with your Farmville in space - I won't be renewing my sub.

you open a devblog with
Incarna - which by the way is one of our more smooth and successful expansions, not to mention absolutely gorgeous

and then expect anyone to take it seriously?

Seriously, these people were doing their jobs and do not deserve the hate and ****storm being pointed at them.

Altrough i agree that many people on the forums have overreacted a lot, if the opinions expressed in the letter were the actual opinions of those people they deserve a good spanking.

Do you have any specific brands? Did you choose it because it was better quality than a no-name brand? Assume for a short while that you are wearing a pair of $1,000 jeans from some exclusive Japanese boutique shop. Why would you want to wear a pair of $1,000 jeans when you can get perfectly similar jeans for under $50? What do other people think about you when they see you wearing them?

No. No. I wouldn't buy jeans for 1000 dollars. I dont wear jeans for 1000 dollars because i wear same for 50 dollars. other people think that one is a spoiled money waster.

We hope you enjoy them and are as passionate about them as you are of the current items that are for sale.

you hope every expansion will have a massive rage-quit and threadnaughts? are you purposely attempt to run yourself out of business?

seriously, wtf was that ?
Answered none of the issues of almost half a million posts today.
Your company is a joke right now. you are gonna lose a lot of players over this.

Posted - 2011.06.24 21:15:00 - [319]

You could have just said:

Dear Eve Community,

Go **** Yourself

-End Dev Blog

Posted - 2011.06.24 21:15:00 - [320]

It took you an hour to write that boilerplate?

Hey guys. This is where you step up and have an honest conversation with your customers.

Posted - 2011.06.24 21:15:00 - [321]

CCP, you have done absolutely nothing to address the multitude of topics that we are angry about as players. Most of them are compiled quite well here:

I hope you have something much more effective and to the point coming soon, or this WILL be the NGE of EVE.

This devblog only served to highlight the extent to which you have grown out of touch with your player base. It addressed none of our concerns, and I'm quite sure will only add more fuel to the fire of protest burining throughout New Eden.

If you want to (slowly) gain the trust of your players back, address the issues in the above link. And do it quickly!

I didn't join in on the rage earlier but this dev blog really baffled me. You pat yourself on the back for doing an awesome job, tell ppl they are being mean to CCP Soundwave and say that prices are fine.

Are you ****ING insane?!?! Really, I expected some back peddling and a more humble tone but this is just a punch in the face of the playerbase....

okay guys.
i was sure this devblog wouldn't answer anything... but AT THIS POINT !
my feeling are back to when i opened the nex tab for the 1st time on TQ and saw the price : i'm totally stunned by something i can't understand.
which by the way is one of our more smooth and successful expansions, not to mention absolutely gorgeous

seems you didn't listen to us
you already forgot all the technical issues ?
you already forgot all the gameplay issues ?
not even a "we're working on it" ?!
They are not CCP policy nor are they a reliable source of CCP views as a company

remember you asked you a pretty simple question : will you stuck to vanity items ? YES or NO ?
and if you want to answer "no, but..." then say it. but SAY SOMETHING !
Seriously, these people were doing their jobs and do not deserve the hate and ****storm being pointed at them.

only point i do agree, but that's the tiniest of the problem here.
In fact you don't need to buy any clothes. Whatever you choose to do reflects what you are and what you want others to think you are.

we're not raging about how high the price are so we can't buy them, we're raging about how the price are high so you won't sell much ! your pricing is ridiculous ! divide the price by 10 and you'll have 50x more sales ! divide by 50 and you'll have 1000x more sales !
I hope I‘ve addressed your concerns and cleared up a lot of the issues you‘re having.

Swing and a miss...

People aren't ****ed aobut the cost of monacles...

Eve gameplay is all based on self regulating markets, and fairness between players.

What everyone is ****ed at is the concept of people being able to pay real money and gaining an advtantage.

This could potentially destroy the game for everyone who does not purchase items.

Haven't you paid any attention to what has happened to other games which introduced balance related microtransactions?

Correct me if im wrong, but you stated in the past that you would never introduce microtransactions correct?

Finally, people are SUPER ****ED about you pathetic responses... we aren't stupid... trying to pretend we are isn't helping your case.

I hope I‘ve addressed your concerns and cleared up a lot of the issues you‘re having. We‘ll continue monitoring the forums and other communications channels and pick up and reply if there are concerns not covered by this blog.

I think that line will be of much use to us, thank you, looking forward to utilize it Smile


Hee hee, I was thinking exactly the same thing: this really takes the biscuit!

Will you EVER sell advantages in eve online? This includes special ships, ammo, skill points, implants, faction standings, ect...

Answer this satisfactorily and the ****storm will go away!

If this is CCP's idea of community communications, then it's goodbye EVE. It was fun while it lasted.

Omg, CCP is more stupid than I originally thought. I guess they really do think Greed Is Good.
