Question for previous CCP employee: In your best estimate how soon would they deploy game-changing MT if they wanted to, how fast do they move from changing mindset to changing policy?

Also CCP less than a year ago said "NO PLANS FOR MICROTRANSACTIONS" when the free skillpoints were given because of down-time. How fast can things change there?

Would seem the newsletter would address relevant ambitions.

How often are the newsletters released?

please address other issue like direction of eve, and poor responce time of GM's, and the USELESS expansions that CCP has been doing..

DJ funk -- its about more then JUST real money transfer for items, it is more then that!

To me, not answering the simple question of no non-vanity items for AUR is answering it. No response is a response. It means that it is an option, they haven't ruled it out. Otherwise it's a simple NO. That to me is a VEEERRRY worrying development. :-\

How about a few comments on: "Perception is Reality" and how that applies to the current events?

Honestly I'd be fine and happy if they just allow me to use the Old Hanger/spining ship station view. And only get out of my pod/frolloc in stations when I choose to.

Bearing in mind Skype limitations, I'd personally love to hear Mittens' take on all this.

I'm hearing Seleene bite his tongue quite a bit, Is he holding on things he think might inflame the situation more ?

Are there things he CANT say ?

I keep thinking he's worried about straying into what he knows that's covered under the NDA.

Yes, one of the issues is items being created out of thin air.

Obviously we can already purchase power items for real money, but those items are created by players. However, the main point of PLEX system is that we can choose to not support the PLEX system ( and bazaar ). We can choose to earn the items in game.

With the AURUM system, if they create power items ( and they will HAVE to be more powerful than earned items ) then we will be _required_ to support the AURUM system.

Also, AURUM is a one way conversion. Which means you can NEVER break even. I bought PLEX late last year, sold it, and later earned 350mil and "sold" the isk back by applying the new plex. You can't do this with AURUM.

Also, AURUM uses a bull**** marketing driven conversion rate. You are only allowed to buy a $20 bill, but all the items cost $20.01 so you have to purchase $40. The point of this system is to disassociate the RL value of the currency so consumers will spend more than they want (see MS points or Zynga bucks or w/e). This is compounded since you have to deal with at least 2 currency conversions and possibly three.

Guys, awesome radio show so far, this really shows how deep the dissent goes. CCP needs to really wake up and look how much damage they have caused by greed, blind ambition and audacity.

Bumping as per Radio!

The mac patch was anything but smooth, near disaster imo and was a throwback to over a year ago. Dark days back then, this patch was a complete rerun. I should also mention that many mac users found out the shader 3 support wasn't all that in their shader 3 compatible cards and are completely out of the game now. I'm not one of them, but nasty, nasty surprise.

CQ gets old fast but what sucks about it is it's as if they've never played a FPS. The camera/char control is weaksauce.

Anyway. Keep going... good stuff.

Thanks for this Eve Radio, good interview!

Posted - 2011.06.25 01:52:00 - [108]

How similar do you think this potentially could be compared to the NGE Fiasco in Star Wars Galaxies?

Odd that today they have announced the shutdown of SWG.

Alright yeah, expanding on my point above, where do we go from here? Where does CCP go from here? The remaining trust in CCP has been pretty much destroyed by this past couple of weeks.

Is this the NGE moment for Eve?

My question:

Mynxee thinks that personal attacks on CCP employees are too harsh. Does she think that a person who believes in hiding CCP's true agenda from the players, who believes that breaking the game and then charging players MT$ to 'unbreak' the game should hold the job at CCP that Soundwave does? (Or does she feel that this is an unfair question somehow?)

On a side note: Mittens, apologize to Mynxee you douche!

Question for the CSM, if CCP continues to avoid the mt for in game advantage question will the CSM walk out. I personally think they should if CCP continues to ignore you guys.

Questions if I can be so cheeky
Think you guys will get a reply from ccp tonight?


Do you guys think ccp will introduce aur for ships and so on that would damage the economy?

What was the original analogy CCP was going to use in their dev blog?

The Scope
Posted - 2011.06.25 01:53:00 - [114]

these guys had their chance to make ammends, if there was ANY chance of salvation for them, and to rebuild trust with the community, it was in that dev blog. Zulu ****ed that up. It was a gigantic F*ck you, deal with it, we are going to do what we want.

That is more unprofessional then any attacks that were made towards any individuals from ccp. While i believe being mature, and simple, about the situation is productive...the dev blog showed everyone that civility didnt work. Even you guys said you gave suggestions to the dev blog before it was posted and it was posted anyway without even acknowledging any of your ideas.

Listening to this via Jita Cam, good discussion. As a player who actually likes CQ I don't necessarily agree with everything but the MT issue is massive. If we allow them to cut out eve player industry/markets via MT we allow them to ruin a game that is dear to all our hearts. No one should have to pay more than the subscription to be on the same 'playing field' as anyone else.

does ccp currently respect the older players or is this a focused move to cultivate new players and just let the old players complaine because they take us for granted?

Plain and simple, in light of the memo and their actions leading up to this interviewl, keeping in mind the hugely negative reaction: how can CCP go forward with the expansive MT agenda?

In other words: Will they sacrifice this huge portion of the subscriber base to reach the potential audience they might tap here?

You know, "The truth will set you free"

I like Soundwave, I really hope he doesn't believe what he wrote. If it was simply a let's RP what we can do with MT then they should say that.

If they are going to introduce MT then level with us. Does CCP understand how much we love this game... We want Eve to succeed, and because we think that this approach will lead to Eve not being the best game that it currently is.

I've never subbed to any other subscriber based game, I don't even subscribe to cable, I subscribe to Eve I love this game and want it to succeed, MT to non Vanity items breaks what makes Eve great...


Nice timing on Mr Troll...

Three questions for the Panel if you please

1) Is the recent "GPU darwinism" a sign that we might have to end up replacing our computer every year or every 18 months?

2) Is the PLEX sink that NeX is essentially a way for them to "patch" a broken PLEX system?

3) (Jokingly): What do you think of this John Turbefield?

Blade Xander
Posted - 2011.06.25 01:53:00 - [120]

quick question, as there are alot of ppl that have unsubbed, do you think CCP will really care or are they just going to ride it out until WoD is available?

and since there is prepayment (mine runs out in 3 months) will a unsub really matter until i'm actually gone?

Thanks Eve Radio
