Honestly, does anyone in CCP even try to do their jobs?
I guess we got designers that cant read...or count in this case, or cant be bothered to follow simple game lore. It says quad, can a designer or whoever QA the god-damned thing see anything wrong here? Reflection not counting.

CCP Fail

I wont even go with how ugly some weapon icons are, half the time i dont know what i have fitted on my ship, so much for visual identification (design 101 maybe?) At first i was kinda sad launchers dont get some love, after seeing how much CCP cares....now i am happy they got postponed.

Amarr ships? Kinda following the golden hull doctrine and everything...so who the hell colored the Maller? Dark brown looking crap?
Other cruisers...Arbitrator, Augoror and Omen have "gold" paintjob/hull/whatever. Than we got a redesigned Maller that when targeted looks like we got a turd in a little image box.

Honestly CCP, what the hell?
If i did a job like this at my workplace, that goes against everything already established, my employer would ask me if i am mentally ill, tired of my job or pure stupid.
Depending on my answer i would get tazerd by security and thrown out or taken away by some strangely tall guys in white uniforms while wearing a jacket that is zipped up in the back...

This!

The Icons are just pure fail. I just dont understand how they passed any kind of testing or management signoff...

Its not about a little error. Things like this keep piling on.
If you are asked to design a car, and you draw a bike... any your higher-ups dont give a damn, they say its ok, screw it. QA department, anyone?

They already shown they dont give a bloody damn about the game lore. New weapon icons look blurry as crap, good luck learning the weapon differences based on the new icons.

Not to be a complete jerk to CCP here, but OP does make a point (or two, remember kids: scram ship parties are the best kind of parties because scram ship parties dont stop... until everyone is dead).

I'm sure theres more than just that linked case too, I mean, there's a certificate for Harvesting Comptrollers afterall (it's actually spelled like that ingame!) despite the fact that I didn't know you could harvest computer trollers. Wink

On a constructive level though, CCP... The community is the best development resource you could ever have. Sure, a lot of people are egomaniacal jackasses who couldn't care less, but thats where your job as game devs and designers come into play. Ideas are cheap, anyone can come up with them - your job is to find the few useful and briliant ideas and somehow pack them into EVE in an acceptable way. If the art department is your biggest bottleneck, hire more artists. If you lack the funds to do so, maybe developing 3 games at once isn't the brightest idea. I remember a time when all 3 studios around the world co-operated to bring us the Apocrypha expansion, and that thing is widely hailed as the best expansion to ever be released. It had lore, new content, fun gameplay, and most of all, it was rewarding and required a perfect blend of teamwork. Best of all? It only took you four months.

Downside to that? Now we expect that kind of quality in all future releases. Embarassed

My suggestion: Trust your employees. CCP has a policy regarding it's employees not being allowed to join any major corporations/alliances, most likely as a result of the T20 incident. This policy is complete bull as you're showing that you do not trust your employees with their power. Worst of all, you're preventing your very staff, the people who develop FOR this game, from participating in it at an optimal level. From what I understand, most CCP employees have non CCP characters, but they cannot even have these characters play normally - because there is the remote chance that the CCP dev would abuse his powers and say... supply an alliance with T2 BPO.

CCP: your employees are not your enemies, and neither is the playerbase.
Players: The devs are not your enemies, if they cannot play the game, you should play the game for them. I know it's a bit like guiding a blind man - except it's more of a cluster**** than a subtle guidance. Everyone is trying to guide the blind man in the way that they want to take him, regardless of where the blind man wants to go himself. You see the problem?

Aaaaand, I'm textwalling again... So I'm just going to stop this post right here. ugh

EDIT: What I'm trying to say is that CCP devs probably don't have a huge incentive to play the game if all they can ever do is log on, and well... do nothing. A game stops being fun if all you can ever do is play admin. Sad

Basically, the accountant in charge of accounting practices, or something like that.

By the power of Akita T, I stand corrected. Still... Harvesting Controller (or Accountant) might have been a less confusing choice of words.
It makes for a good pun, but thanks for the free vocabulary expansion!

Many men have spent their lives hoping for CCP to do stuff correctly, they went insane and killed themselves. Incoming piece of **** winter expansion "fixing" (more likely ruining) spaceships as well and not just all the **** around them in 3...2...1...

Hello Leana Akachi,

Thank you for the bug report. Please note that there is a [url=https://bugs.eveonline.com/newbugreport.asp"]bug reporting form[/url] on our website, which might be more convenient to use than the forums.

Moving this thread to 'Issues, Workarounds & Localization'.
