Let's imagine a situation: you have flown all the way to Iceland, gotten some ISK souvenirs and got urself drunken. The next day you got to CCP and meet a dev of your choice.

...What would you say/ask?

Did anyone else read up to this point and expect the sentence to end "you wake up next to a CCP dev of your choice?"

I don't know about a developer but here is what I just said in a good-bye to corp mates:

Hey guys,

I didn't know the core NoX guys too well but spent a good part of 2 years with the 5th guys so wanted to wave on the way out.

The CCP moves and statements make it clear to me that game design issues are going to be decided around maximizing MTs... its not really the Pay2Win issue to me... I don't have a problem with people buying ISK and the stuff isk can buy in a game designed around players earning isk with game play.

The thing is they're making game play design choices like how many fittings you can store, and maybe ship balance, and supply of faction quality modules , and what sort of CPU use you're forced into in station etc. based around how much extra MT. they can sell. They've also stated they have limited development resources they chose to devote back into improving EVE vs other of their games and they'll be using a fair portion of those limited resources working on those things.

On top of that, I think the Captainís Quarters sucks. I hate the way the characters move.. I don't like their design choices...i'd by far prefer a far lower resolution and the ability to dance around doing silly things to taunt people or just clown around... and don't have a clue what the purpose of an Avatar is if I can go around shooting things like i could 17 years ago playing wolfenstein (the doom precursor ) in 1994. Dumbing down Agent standings, and removing the social interest of seeing those for other players is another personal peeve.

So, I'm not going to stand by and be a part of supporting a company making those kinds of choices, even by playing it much for free and adding to the buzz around the game, .

I've got over 100 billion isk and, hell I might come back to the game at some point. I do like an awful lot about what they(CCP) founded and they might re-grasp their core ideals

or.... there might ust not be anything better to play. I'm going to try Pertpetuum for a few months. I'm in a corp with XXXXX guys ...using the name Sundance22 .. They've hooked up with some more experienced players... mature guys (but a bit inclined to monty python jokes)... but they still have some swagger and of course XXX does.

I'll keep logging in , updating skill cues, farming data cores, and maybe spending a few hours trading here and there to make a few billion more a month if its fun to do so... if you got some special ideas or game needs that catch my fancy I could see parting with some billions here and there if it was interesting or funny or you just caught my ear.

...but if i'm inactive, its probably best to drop corp to keep the emo complaints about "100 guys in corp and we can't turn out 15 for a fleet) from happening.

See you guys in the future back in EVE or in other games... (I'm going to mostly be using Sundance22 as a game moniker these days but I can see using Shander places too),

Cheers

Though granted, I would probably get fired within the week for yelling at everyone there to do their jobs properly too much.

I'm sorry you work for CCP...

I know if I did my faith would be shattered in my own company and Iceland is NOT a good place to be stuck as a game developer without a job - or a developer working on something he doesn't care about or enjoy. There are few professions in this world that you can actually be proud of what you do and really enjoy it - social services is one obvious field, but entertainment is another - and games build communities that last far longer than any LotR movie club.

Confirming that 400 DPS at 80 km with 80k ehp is not good enough.

Confirming Drakes are hopeless and no one uses them also everyone flies Amarr because of scorch and Gallente have no ships worth using especially their frigates and capitals.

For an entire line up, they got ECM, Drake and Tengu yes but a whole host of Rail Ships.

I will give you a minute to break down the mental barrier you put up to force yourself to forget about the Eagle.

It takes a minute.

Never said they were useless, I was refering to the rest of the rail lineup. How good would Amarr be without Scorch.

I'd tell them that its unlikely their pay will go up when Dust and WOD launches, since its apparently part of corporate culture to under pay staff.

There is always going to be an excuse to pay you less than you are worth, and when there are proper processes to do things and the lions share of the load has been carried by you, you will be less needed, not your contributions valued more.

See the people that get the good pay, the WOW phantom cats, etc?

Theyll keep getting them.

Not you!

Its not a problem of cash flow, or revenue, but corporate culture!

Hybrids are bad. Not caldari ships. You specifically mentioned the drake, so I addressed the drake.

Drake is great, it's my favorite ship mostly for astetics but love the versitility almost as much as the Cane. Thats why I said not a Drake, they are your go to PVP Caldari while Hybrids get the shaft.

I think I would hand the Dev a beer and ask him if he was as frustrated by what is going on with CCP management as we are.

How does saying Drakes are useless have anything to do with Rails? Or are you just making poorly written statements.

Amarr would be worse off without Scorch so your quick implication that it in itself is as good as all Minmatar ships is short-sighted and ill-fitting. If they nerf scorch they had better do something to look at the ships as a whole.
