It is clear to me that CCP management has taken a page out of SirMolle's book and when faced with a failcascade tackles it with the head in sand approach.

They know of the question, CCP Manifest went through most of the post in the megathread in general he would have seen it in yellow about 30+ times.

They're choosing not to answer and by posting this thread when they did they're still choosing not to answer the question directly. Indirectly they've already given the answer, which is yes!


If they refused to reply, then we all need to ask in a louder tone.



They've given the answer already.

Look at it this way if they had no intention of introducing items that had some benefit ingame, then they would have told us and saved all this aggro.

My hours for plex will soon be over...

So I repeat one more time, The only way to make them reconsider their non vanity RMT shop is

Unsubscribe and do not login



If you do anything else the MIS graphs will show you approve of Eve NGE.

I bid you farewell and good luck

True but if they realize almost everyone on the forums are not wanting it to go past vanity they might not, who knows, if you dont try you will not get anywhere.

"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."


CCP needs to eat their humble pie, protect their 'bird in the hand' money generator that is EVE, kill WoD and accept the consequences of the position they've placed themselves in. It will go FAR better than trying to save everything and ending up with nothing. A consistently profitable sub based MMO is a valuable resource that many other companies would kill to have.


There is video of that on youtube.

Hilmar walks into each room and yells "The new subscriber target is 600k!"

One room they all look at him like "WTF you ****head we're working on stuff that actually matters here. Go away.".

CCP, instead of hiring economists, you should hire some people who actually have a degree in Communication (and know how to apply it).

This dev blog is insultingly bad and lacking in content.

(Not that you care about this or any other opinion anyway.)

CCP,

One of the keys to good communication is the ability to understand your audience. Fundamental to that is the ability to listen.

Unfortunately the post above does not address most of the critical questions your audience has been asking over the past several days.

The most critical question being asked right now is quite simply: Will non vanity items be sold through microtransactions in game? (where non vanity items are defined as items that could be be used by one player to gain an advantage over another or to directly impact the game world).

The blog above does not address that issue. Given it is the fundamental one for the player base, your silence on this issue becomes more and more damning. People are asking this question because they want to know the answer - it will inform the decisions they make going forward. Without it, you force them to make decisions based on the information they have available to them. And at this point that information is fairly damning.

While you have explained that the Fearless Newsletter is an internal document designed to prompt discussion, I note that if that was its purpose it came from a fundamentally unbalanced perspective. A good discussion, like any good communication, requires all sides to give their input. With the exception of the "against" comments for MT put forward by John T. every other article around MT presents a pro MT slant. By my count that is nearly a 90% to 10% slant in favor of MT in Fearless. A truly fearless perspective would have given equal weight to both sides.

When you couple that with open discussion in that newsletter of non vanity items sales, an area that your players thought had been already fundamentally ruled out, you can see how your defense of Fearless as a discussion peice is questionable at best. A truly balanced debate about MT would have read as such. Your Fearless newsletter is not such a debate. When you couple that lack of balance with a quite frankly demeaning portrayal of your player base in the articles you can see why, from your player's perspective that document must be read with suspicion.

If you really want to put this issue to rest, answer the question that has been put to you.

No more evasions, no more half answers, no more delay. At this point your silence is only damning you. Give your players the ability to make a fully informed decision on this issue. Over the past number of years, your player base has given you their trust, their respect and their hard earned cash. We deserve an answer to this question.

HTFU CCP - Listen to what we are saying and then step forward and answer the question. The player base that has trusted you for years deserves your respect.

Fearless my ass. You don't even have the guts to come out and say yes, we are planning on expanding MT beyond vanity items. All you can do is hide in a corner and avoid directly answering the big yellow question hoping this problem fixes itself.

Fearless? More like Cowardice.

Does anyone know where the bathroom is?



That is all I need to know, 'cause I really didn't want to $1tt in the CQ.
But it seem that I don't really have a choice now, do I?

And I'll have to buy a new computer, so I can run Incarna, just to see in the mirror my soiled pants.

Or would they just let me FLY a freaking SHIP, since that is why I joined this game to begin with?!!!

Wake up CCP!

Maybe if CCP repeats it'self enough times they will believe their own bull****. Repetition is a beautiful thing... Really? A ..deal with it attitude? Gotta love your mentality at CCP offices. What a crock of ****. How about you stop dancing around the issue and face the hard facts..You ****ed off the fan base and you fail to admit that you are in the wrong. For once do a mea culpa right.

Please note that I'll take no answer as a "Yes".

Thank you.


This is my question as well, I could careless about vanity items but if you start adding things that impact game play and little Jimmy can use his mommy's credit card to get an leg up then I am out of here with my 3 subs.

P.S. That jeans example... bad choice and way out of touch with what we are upset about. Also if those were just the opinions and ideas of high ranking employees that have a direct impact on the direction of the game why the hell are you surprised we took their comments to heart?

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.


I would have to agree here with Zulu entirely. I honestly couldn't care less about NEX or CQ and i am not happy that the Hangar view is gone, but I agree that its not cool to "attack" CCP over this.

p.s. I do love the new turrets though. They make frigs look very badass!

Jesus, what a fiasco.

Originally by: CSM Seleene
Based on the devblog, and my impressions from the conversations I have had in recent days, it is my opinion that CCP has decided upon a strategy with respect to virtual goods and Incarna, and that they are going to fearlessly implement it regardless of feedback from CSM or the players.

Our words, and yours, on this issue seem to be worthless. Only our actions have any weight.

I am carefully considering what to do next as I mull all this over.



And I lol'd at CCP Zulu bragging about how well Incarna's launch has gone.

Well, this is what happens when you make a product without checking to see if there's a market for it first. If soeone had come up to me and asked "Hey, do you want a GPU-destroying, spaceship-based chat client with $60 micropayment pants for your character?" the answer would have been "Nah!"

...but they didn't, so they built it, and what's more they built it in such a way that it *screws up a perfectly functional space combat game I *wanted* to play. Oops!
