I would thank them for developing the game for eight years. Ask them how the company was running and what to expect coming out soon. And leave them be...

It is their job to make this game. I can un-subscribe and play lots of other things if I don't like it.

I'd say, "What kind of name is Dev, anyway? Seems there's a lot of people here named Dev. Is it short for something? Maybe 'Devoid' or something?"

Maybe listen to Q&A and test feedback before a release?

Also, if you are willing to then work for me and make EVE a better game without resorting to lazy MT schemes then you are hired back.

How current is your resume?

Are you going to put CCP on it?

I would threaten to kill him/her if he didn't give me a fat ransom. Just kidding.

Company's that put themselves on pedestals have a long, long way to fall. Your going to leave a awful mess when you go splodge!

What I would say:

If you're going to add new content, make it worthwhile. CQ is pretty and all, but it does nothing.

If you're going to release an expansion, wait until it's out of the beta-stage before putting it on Tranquility.

You made turrets pretty, now it's time to make missiles pretty.

If you ever want to integrate Eve and Dust, you're going to need to make defending PI worthwhile.

Presently, in PvP, there are some ways in which smaller ships are occasionally better than bigger ones. Why then is it true that a larger blob is always, unfailingly, absolutely better than a smaller one? Why does blob warfare not suffer from diminishing returns, as everything else does?

Why do pants cost more than faction battleships?

"Hi! Nice to meet you.

One thing bothers me: Do you also have the feeling there's too many of you and some lacking true dedication? Does it sometimes come to your mind as well that the game might get developed too fast and without enough second thought?"

met a few in my time, I pretty much said the same to all, hey!

Always met them in situations were banter was all go, so alot of fun things were said, and often teasing at them (and back!)

I'd ask why they started developing DUST and vampier online at the same time.
Then I'd ask if it was true they were in econical problems.
Then I'd ask if there were a link between money problems and the DUST vampier combo.
Then I'd ask if that is why they developed NeX.
Then I'd ask why they couldent do this instead.
Then I'd say they handeled the riot very professional.
Then I'd ask if they aint afraid people would give CCP a bad rep.
Then I'd say bye.

I'd tell them to HTFU and start improving gameplay and quit releasing gameplay that doesn't work and is full of bugs.

Most of all I'd advise them to take some courses in game design /concept design and actually have a plan or a clue what they are doing rather then floundering from one poor design concept to another.

If I worked like they do I wouldn't get to work in concept design, maybe I'd get a job in HR or IT support.

I'd also tell them whoever originally designed the basic game concepts was a genius and to listen to him/ bring him back.

I met a dev just a couple of weeks ago.

Here's what I said to him: "John Turbefield, thank you for understanding what Eve is all about and for standing up for the interests of the players."
