Wow! Just Wow! Seriously? Is this some sort of practical joke before you answer the questions? If this is a real response from CCp and you believe this is going to help....... then you might as well pick the filth off the floor and smear it in your custommers faces.........


Are you going to introduce anything other than VANITY items in to the game for Aur?

Answer that...

If you wont answer that.. Can I have the years subscription back that I paid about a month ago?

That blog was Sooooooooo Insulting........ You come across so damn smug.. so superior... I better not type what I'm thinking.. you'll just ban me.

So this is CCP's answer?
You took all this time to more or less tell us to f**K off and accept it?
It's an absolutely shocking display of arrogance and disregard for your customers. Have you ever seen your player base so angry and motivated? You have a chance to be motivated or crushed by it - wht do you think the response of the wider gaming community will be as this leaks out through new media and word of mouth?

Zulu, if you need to talk, email me, I'm sure you can find my email address. You can even do so anonymously.

I know you're being forced to write this by the management, and that it's not your real opinions.

I'm on your side.

Posted - 2011.06.24 21:19:00 - [396], where's the apology in that blog? The tone was the opposite, he was angry at us for raging (we were raging rightfully). this wont do.

I change my mind, It's a big "**** you" to playerbase. you didn't had to wait 4 days to write that.

You know what? Next time dont bother writing anything, Seleene and other CSM guys handles your PR mistakes much better than you do.

You don't get it do you? it's not just about "Fearless newsletter and Monocles", it's about COMMUNICATION.

You go to great lengths electing the CSM, talk to them. Because they do a much better PR job then you guys do, and they're not even get paid.

oh and btw, unsubbed my alt.

I am honestly not sure how stupid someone has to be to compare the price of a virtual good to a real one.

When you get $1,000 jeans they're nothing like $50 ones. you're paying for materials, construction quality, and design. You're paying so for every instance. But in Eve, a $5 pair of pants and a $50 pair of pants are made of the same "material" and took the same amount of time to make as well as being able to be spawned ad naseaum.

Shall I keep saying this until you figure out that, due to your PR-Leak and fiasco, you need to reassure us of this?
And not some half-assed promise...

If so, i'll happily repeat it:

As a psychologist with focus on conflict management in organisations and a special interest (which I don't tell my clients) in shooting down carebears, I congratulate you CCP to successfully escalating the conflict and creating more hostility.

A trick in all conflicts is to listen and validate not go on the offensive or defensive.

ETA on real dev blog to address concerns? Maybe something with actual content and some official CCP statements about what they are going to do to address the multitude of issues brought up in this longer, player written post, not to mention the almost 200 page forum thread.

This week has seen quite a controversy unfold. In almost the same instant as we deployed Incarna - which by the way is one of our more smooth and successful expansions, not to mention absolutely gorgeous - an internal newsletter with rather controversial topics addressed leaked out.

Basically patting yourself on the back, while we are ravaged and upset about the same exact expansion????. Wow... those some balls CCP.

People have been shocked by the price range in the NeX store, but you should remember that we are talking about clothes. Look at the clothes you are currently wearing in real life. 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? For some you will look like the sad culmination of vainness while others will admire you and think you are the coolest thing since sliced bread. Whichever it is, it is clear that by wearing clothes you are expressing yourself and that the price is one of the many dimensions that clothes possess to do that in addition to style and fit. You don't need to buy expensive clothes. 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.

I think far more people buy clothes for the cost, rather than the expression. A pair of jeans is just a fricken pair of jeans, while a pair of virtual jeans costing more than what I'm wearing at my desk is outright robbery and theft. Your system is a joke, and your ego is too big to see what real life is to your gamers. Virtual or not, we are not your cash cows. You're a joke... and you lost 2 more accounts.

I hope Ive addressed your concerns and cleared up a lot of the issues youre having. Well continue monitoring the forums and other communications channels and pick up and reply if there are concerns not covered by this blog.

It took you over 24 hours to produce that blog? Really?

Posted - 2011.06.24 21:19:00 - [405]

You haven't addressed ANY concerns.

Because you're clearly not attempting to read the BIG YELLOW FONT that others have been using.

I thought it was excessive, but it's clear you have made a decision to introduce RMT and non-vanity items into the production line, because all you would have to do is re-iterate what you said in the past about non-vanity items.

The price is ridiculous, and frankly I expect the MEDIA TO LAUGH AT YOU for that.

But the promise of non-vanity items is over the top. You are going to literally crush your community. You just don't have the guts to say it.

You think this will blow over, it will not. People have been protesting in Amarr, Jita and no Dodixie for over 2 hours, and you think it will go away?

But am sure if you would adress the concerns formulated here on a point by point basis we'd all be treating your blog like less of a joke.

CCP is hopeless, the important questions were ignored again. It's a shame.

Posted - 2011.06.24 21:19:00 - [412]

Seriously CCP, a very big part of the users that put bread on your table are mildly put angry with you because they are under the impression ( rightly so imho ) that you have given them the finger.

A blog was promised and I personaly had my hopes up, but not only do you give us another finger to go with it. No you poke them in our eyes while kicking us in the groin and laughing straight in our faces.

This blog is a joke and if you don't see it for yourselves I only have on thing to say:

"Shame on you!"

Posted - 2011.06.24 21:20:00 - [413]

People don't want MT and subscribtions fees. You tell us you add more expansive stuff...erm...

Also, your internal dokument are just the ideas your developers are implementing, that has nothing to do what you will do ... erm...


You are really stupid
You think we are really stupid
You want to destroy the game

Btw, the problem is, we want a sandbox. You want to do a cash-shop in it. Then it's no sanbox anymore.

While its perfectly fine to disagree and attack CCP over policies or actions we take, we think its not cool how individuals that work here have been called out and dragged through the mud due to something they wrote in the internal company newsletter. Seriously, these people were doing their jobs and do not deserve the hate and ****storm being pointed at them.

Their opinions are worthy of this ****storm. I'm sorry. The whole sarcastic newsletter seems to underline that CCP has forgotten who pays their checks. Players DID NOT ASK for microtransactions. Players DID NOT ASK for Aurum. But we got it anyways. Of all the MMO's that needed microtransactions EVE needed it like a hole in the head.

I realize that after the angry element leaves, you may manage to lure enough new players interested in monocles and virtual clothing stores to keep making money, I wish you luck. Because from where I stand, this looks allot like what SOE did with Star Wars Galaxies. EVE is not LoTR, EVE is not DDO, EVE is not Allods Online, and you're fools if you think it's players want the same things.

You may laugh on the way to the bank, but not with my $15.

Posted - 2011.06.24 21:20:00 - [416]

What a complete and utter pile of steaming horse manure. Someone at CCP seriously needs to pull their head from their arse and realise that a significant proportion of players are extremely annoyed that they are being ignored and condescended to.

$1000 jeans? what frigging planet are they living on? I won't spend that on a damn car let alone a pair of jeans (unless they can carry me home whilst extremely drunk and spawn nymphomaniacs on demand)

I've already unsubbed both my accounts and with that pathetic excuse for a blog CCP can go and take a flying **** at the moon if they want my hard earned cash in their pocket.

So.. this blog explains a bit about the Newsletter.. thats good.. and yeah.. MT is something that needs to be talked about.
This what happens when you pull something out of its context.. we are not in the loop about CCP internal dialog.. and now we see this and we go all ape **** on it..

But I'm afraid it wont help.. i was in the mass-protest channel and ppl are not listing.. they already made up their mind..

If you love this game.. then calm down and let CCP have a couple of days to process your rage.. they already said that this nothing they are thinking about right now.. and you only have their word on it.. lets just take one step back everyone and lets open up a dialog.. or we wont come anywhere.. and if ppl keep jamming up Jita and Amarr.. i say ban them all..or use game masters to blow them all up. CCP are aware of your rage.. now let them work their brains on howto solve it. Jaming up Jita and Amarr or whatever like a ****** wont get us anywhere.

But this new store is way out priced.. even CCP have to see that..

Simple, no response to hundreds pages of complaints is a clear response. Be prepared to a new way of shopping in Eve.

CCP Zulu speaks on the Fearless newsletter and Monocles in this dev blog.

I have never seen anyone take so long to write so many words and say so very very little.

If anything this response proves that the individuals you feel are being unfairly criticized deserve every single comment they've received.

CCP you are well and truly out of touch with the people that love your product. HTFU admit you were wrong and set a new course before you run a ground.

Really, you take all this time and that's all you got, you answered nothing you addressed nothing. Your game is burning in front of you CCP and you just threw gas on the flames.
