CCP!! You already know how we feel, it's all over the internet. Meeting with CSM achieves nothing.

Thanks Zulu. I really hope this puts an end to or at least calms the riots.

Also, people should not speak for others. I really don't mind vanity MTs. I encourage them.

Posted - 2011.06.26 18:48:00 - [123]

This is a great step forward and I'm very happy to read that the tone has changed. I very much support CCP's decision to consult the CSM before making any snap decisions and saying things that have to be taken back afterwards, just like it happened this weekend.

Looking forward to the CSM meeting

Thankyou for the blog and the appology.

Let us hope that the CSM and CCP can address the communities concerns.

never have been plans to sell "gold ammo" for Aurum.

Look, all most of us want is no game changing stuff in that aurum shop. You can charge 1000 dollars for a monocle, see if most of us care. BUT DONT GIVE OUT ITEMS THAT ARE NON VANITY IN THERE! that is the main problem in your plans.

Another problem that gets people fervored up is the idea of offering painted ships without the need to have a produced unpainted ship.... that is much easier to handle add a rigged paint slot (if it is taken out it is destroyed, to avoid not getting your money for the product.) or just require a item to make that item a painted version.

Why didn't you say:

"We are not going to sell any Non-Vanity items in the NEX store" !!!!!!

We know they had plans for ships for aurum, so we already know ships aren't covered by that statement.

It's a non-statement. We won't get coloured ammo. That's about it.

A more concilitory tone this time, for which most of us will be grateful but why is it so difficult to answer a simple question? Will there ever be non-vanity items sold for AUR? That answer doesn't require a CSM meeting.

This issue goes WAY above CSM interaction.

This is a perfect non answer, slyly deflective.

You people buying it never even understood the real root issues and their implications.

You people buying this just got caught up in the forum rage, and like good sheep everywhere, you go where you're told.

Classic CCP Stall tactic.

The question was on non vanity MT's not "gold ammo". By only answering the gold ammo part you leave yourself the ability to still put in MT's.

The CSM are in a skype channel with you. Web conferencing is a common tool. Phone conferencing has been on the go from the 70's. There is zero reason to have a face to face meeting.

Unless you want to stall for 6 days and let things quiet down.

"Gold ammo"

Replace that with "in game advantages." Add "never will be" to same sentence. Then you are good to go.

Otherwise this is just weak stalling tactics. Arrow

This blog is better, not great, but better. Its not enough to keep me from unsubbing one of my accounts but the other one will stay up until I hear how the csm meeting goes. I really hope I see some signs that there will be significantly improved communication with the players. Maybe then you can admit that there are serious issues with your current direction for the game and this patch in particular/


PS if you guys have problems with leaks internally you should probably consider that the people leaking stuff are ****ed with your ****ty communication issues the same as us players... just saying

I feel like gold ammo here is an analogy for all Non-vanity items. Good job CCP.

**** the CSM, like they speak for the players of eve. They are the same lemmings that run the alliances, BOTS and RMT.

Bring on MT and give me more bling.

I don't know how much I trust CCP's word right now, I asked for actions, not words. It seems you are trying to make good on that. You didn't try to set anything in stone, rather you are flying our representatives out there for a face to face meeting. I'll still be waiting on the results of that meeting, but I think this is a step in the right direction.

I'll try to refrain from any instigating posts in the coming days and give CCP the chance to listen to the player base and hopefully make some changes. I know some people will yell "too late!" but I think better late than never. If we don't give them the chance to listen to us now, then they'll never have a reason to. We demanded to be heard, and they are hearing us. Let it happen and give things a chance.

CCP, I'll be encouraging the CSM to not only bring MT to the table, as well as other problems with the expansion (which, I've said repeatedly, was not all bad, in fact, I like the direction most of it is taking), but to address the letter Hilmar wrote. The wording in it makes me wary when you say you'll listen (actions not words), as well as your intents behind MT (...communicated our intention... Fearless newsletter...). As I said, this would all be pointless if I weren't to give you a chance now, but I wanted to let you know my feelings, and what's on the table for me. There are the problems that started all this, and there are problems from the actions afterwards.

Goodluck at the summit everyone.

@CCP Zulu

Good dev blog. I will wait and see what happens in the next couple weeks.
My 4 accounts will run out in 8 days. I will watch and see what happens in the feature.

I love EVE and i will come back when things are sorted out.

I have also noted that the CSM does not seem to be inline with the community on this, and have no faith that they will hold the line for us.

How is the CSM out of line? Please explain what you want the CSM to bring to CCP that's different from what they've already publicly stated.

Therefore we have asked the CSM to join us in Iceland for an extraordinary meeting June 30th and July 1st to discuss the events of past week, to help us define and address the real underlying concerns, and to assist us in defining and iterating on our virtual goods strategy.

The result of this meeting should be mutual agreement of how virtual goods and services will evolve in EVE. Other issues may be brought up and we urge you to contact the CSM with your comments and concerns so that they may be addressed at this session.

Absolutely the correct way to handle this. While I may not always agree with everything the CSM says, I do believe they have the best interests of EvE at heart.

I look forward to the results of this meeting.

"gold ammo" is too vague, and you know it.

He used a well-established metaphor. No gold ammo means there will not be game mechanic relevant item sales on the NeX. That is part of the answer we wanted to hear.

No "gold ammo", doesn't say anything about ships, SP enhancements, implants, consumables, modules, so on and so forth. I don't understand how "no gold ammo" should be placating so many of you because it's still not a complete answer to "No non-vanity items".

They're so hard pressed for cash it seems, if they need to pull out this Money-trade, then why are they wasting even more money paying for plane tickets during the expensive summer season to fly the CSM out there when web and phone conferences have server so many other corporations very faithfully for so many years?

They won't repeat the promise because they know their word won't be trusted, anyway. Instead, they decide the best way to handle it is to try and meet, in person, those who are supposed to represent our interests, the CSM, to discuss this matter as solidly as possible, and let what results from that speak for itself.

Personally, I think that those who are the most ****ed off won't be placated by anything, even if it is exactly what they want to hear.
