Dear CCP Zulu,

The tone of your blog-post is 100% fail. The content of your blog-post is virtually worthless, but I will stubbornly respond, nonetheless.

1. No one cares about how smooth or not smooth Incarna's release was. Way to pat yourself on the back while Rome burns.

2. "Fearless" - 1st of all, most people are ticked off that you even felt the topic of 'more microtransactions' was worthy of discussion. We thought you were better than that, and our disappointment knows no bounds. "Everyone else is doing it" is the excuse of a 12 year old kid, not an A-list game developer. 2nd - perhaps CCP Soundwave was just following orders. Fine. Fire whoever told him to write that column. It's quite simple - if you want to keep making ANY money from us, someone needs to take responsibility.

3. Pricing structure... yawn. This is just a stupid issue. You chose to introduce CCP-spawned, permanent, indestructable objects into a player driven, 'everything-else-is-destructable' economy, so yeah - I understand that you either have to charge a ridiculous price for those objects or they will almost instantly saturate the system. Many other people don't understand this, but you know what - you did a crap job of explaining that to people.

You have done nothing to placate the masses. I strongly suggest that you and your co-workers look up two important events in MMO history:

1. The Star Wars NGE

2. The Blizzard RealID fiasco

In one case, SOE got greedy and wanted to broaden their playerbase by restructuring the game. Their players cried out, SOE did not listen, and now the game is dead. It's a joke. You should be glad they screwed up, cause SWG was your only other sandbox competition. But you should certainly not try to one-up their mistake.

In the other case, Blizzard got greedy and wanted to inject the Facebook craze into WoW. Their players cried out, Blizzard listened, and a disaster was averted.

You need to get conciliatory quickly, you need to take responsibility, and you need to prove to your community that you have learned your lesson and the direction of Eve has been re-aligned. Good luck.

Way to miss the elephant in the room, idiot. You totally neglected to answer whether or not you plan to add in-game advantages for $$$. That is what the 200+ page Threadnarok is all about, and you blithely ignored it.

Even worse than I expected.

this is a giant "F U" to the playerbase.

Shame on you for ruining EVE, CCP.

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 -

It must be dangerous to backpedal with your leg in the chain and your head up your ass.

Good thing Zulu didn't even attempt it. What a **** blog, way to bring nothing to the table.

Confirm posting in comments thread of a failblog.

All most of us really want to know is, ARE YOU GOING TO ****ING DO SOMETHING OR NOT?

so in fact he does not address the issue at all. WILL AUR BE FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN VANITY ITEMS? This is insulting. This blog is pointless.

Thank you for making it very clear you don't want my support or subscriptions, I'll be keeping my three accounts canceled. Good luck pilots, you are going to need it.

You have still given us no reassurance on the actual MT policy.

Say it loud and clear what you are planning for MT!

Give us a concrete promise that this BS Aurum will only ever be used for vanity items.

So, all we get is an annoyed critique and a "price are fine, HTFU"?

This is strange, I bought a premiere brand game DLC expansion at $4 and it was not even discounted.

$68 for a "micro" transaction in EvE anyone?

I have been playing EVE since 2004.

You've guys have had amazing ideas that have made it in game, questionable changes, some pretty big screw ups. But I've loved you all throughout it.

I promised to play through EVE unless you guys majorily ****ed up. I thought the day would never come, but here we are.

We are screaming at you as loud as we can that WE DONT NOT WANT THIS. Yet you do not care.

As of now my subscription is cancelled. You can get it back if you want it, you know what you have no do. But if you continue like this you'll be right down there with Activision.

TL;DR CCPs gone full ******.

WTF -- we talking about the same thing? You where offline longer then expected and messed up a ton of things ... this is success in ccp's eyes?

also -- do not mistake this protest for one issue, it is the PRESISTANT lack of listening to players, and also teh very poor gm's, and the policyies they us, that has brought us here.
