You were hooked from allot of moments, meight.

Edit: People who come with story's like these, how they love(d) eve, but quit because of some NEX store... that's the most silly thing I've ever read on these forums.
Eve has become a stranger to you. Yeah sure, that NEX store changed the ENTIRE game man! We can't PvP like before anymore, for instance... those monocles... DAMN THOSE MONOCLES!


I think its less to do with the NEX store itself than the direction EVE's devs are taking it, everyone who has quit an alt or all their accounts each have their own unique reason or twist of reason in why they did it imho. Theres no real way of summing up every single 'nex quitter' due to the unique shift of perspective from each player.

Personally, i'm less worried than I was to start with about the last patch contents or 'lack of' as it were, and even the direction or tactics of CCP, and more preoccupied with finding a replacement electronic hobby. EVE will do until something better comes along. :)

Eve still has the biggest potential of all (space)MMORPG's, they way they keep updating their game keeps amazing me. Just look at eve 7years ago, the game massively changed for the better. It's weird to see that people loose trust in CCP all out of sudden just because they add some NEX store. (They think that the general direction is going the wrong way)

Still, all of that doesn't remove ANYTHING from the game that I love, I just don't understand how it does for all those angry people.

Sure, CQ is a bit of a disapointment as is, but I'm sure it'll be awesome when they release the full thing. And I personally think that it will be great for eve in the future, it will just apeal to a larger public. Which is good, it'll bring more people to the game for me to blow up. (Or for 'carebears' to compete with/sell stuff to)

Also, the cross-platform thing that's coming up is quite revolutionary. I'm just really exited about what the future holds. And I don't find myself a CCP fanboy, I see damn well what they can do better and aprove on etc.

o7 Falloot.

It's a shame to see more and more 'Vets' taking this route.

No wonder he's leaving. Look at all the sorry ass people left in the game saying "Can I has your stuff"

I think this says it all about the EVE playerbase, way to many lazy leechs who are only interested in what they can scam from others, rather than actually play a game.



So very true, also these forums have become filled with EPEEN trolls as well.

It really enrages me that CCP constantly ignores the players. With concise information like this, it baffles me that can't just create a universe that everyone will love.

We will miss you OP. And thank you for making me a little bit richer by you leaving. I won't be needing your stuff after all.

PS see you at the WoT gold ammo store.

My subscription expires Sunday, Aug 28, at 2:54. This game was such a rush at the beginning, and I was fascinated in the extreme. I would play so long transfixed to what I was doing I'd later wake up with my eyelids literally stuck to my eyes as they dried out staring at the screen.

My eyes would burn terribly but I would slowly heal and be back at it. I learned to get expensive eyedrops and protect my peepers from laser/explosion overexposure.

I, too, feel Eve and CCP is changed for the worse and I, too, vote with my wallet to leave. The forums have been invaluable in providing wisdom and information, and I give my heartfelt thanks to all who have answered my queries and endured some of my more sarcastic moments.

Goodbye all, and I recommend Refresh Liquigel for those late nights missioning.

You can please some of the people all the time. You can please all of the people some of the time. But you can never please all the people all the time.

Goodbye and I hope this is the last "I've been playing since 1999 blah blah.." thread.

The man has been playing the game for 6 years. I think he is entitled to a good bye thread.

15 minutes later, I saw my first combat. In my rookie ship heading for my first jump gate. A guy in a real frigate locked me, so I locked him right back. I turned towards him and full power to engines. He fired, oh flashy red, what the heck is going on!! I fired my little starter gun and he exploded!!! I remembered thinking, wow weapons are really powerful in this game he must have missed. LOL, took me a couple of days to realize Concord got him. But I was hooked on EVE from that moment.

I remember my first Corp War. Outnumbered 3 to 1, out gunned, out skilled but I singly handed ended the war with out firing a shot. All of my Corp mates were in the euro time zone so I used my solo time to book mark the snoot out of the hostile corp home system. Next day just my mere presence, and I guess the Geddon helped a bit too, I locked them in the station and prevented them from mining, traveling, having fun. Next day I log on and the war is over. But I was hooked on EVE from that moment.

I remember the first time I lost a ship to another player. Birdog was his name in a Caldari Battleship in low sec space. He locked me, I figured I could take a torp hit or two and make it to the station. I was wrong!!! I remember being so mad, I used all my isk and put a bounty on him!!!! I was so stupid!!! But I was hooked on EVE from that moment.

I remember seeing the 3 year old players in Battleships doing missions, back in the day all missions happened right out in the open by jump gates, stations, etc., and deciding in 2 years I was going to be just like them and trained my heart out. I made a commitment to EVE and was hooked from that moment.

I remember going on 0.0 roams in interceptors, blowing through the gate camps, trying to decided what loot to take back. I was so hooked on EVE.

Over 5 years later, today the game I once so loved has became a stranger to me. With the coming of the latest update and the nex store, I made a commitment to vote with my feet and cancel my accounts, 2 accounts 209 million experience. That time comes in a little over 5 days.

I would like to thank the following:

Sergio Montoya my mentor and friend who so helped me learn the game mechanics and profit.
Maric Abair the CEO of my first corp and friend who gave me a home for 1.5 years.
Zippy Pinno friend and I am still sorry about the testing weapons incident.
BrotherGrim who pushed me out into 0.0 living for a time.

Good bye all, Friends, Enemies, and the occasional in the wrong place at the wrong time, I salute you all.


You can transfer your character over to me now. Will only believe you until you do otherwise your not leaving and is just another troll post.Razz

This is a really good post. No vitriol. No demands. No insults, but the truth of it is an indictment to which game developers who have gone corporate can only pretend to be oblivious, and they will.

In a sense it's a farewell to an era when true gamers and true game designers engaged in an intellectual clash of historic proportions. Alas and alack, only to be rained upon by the profiteering logic of the inscrutable corporate mentality.

The passing of purity. It's worth a moment to shed a tear and recall...those who are old enough to remember...

The man has been playing the game for 6 years. I think he is entitled to a good bye thread.

not if he leaves "because of NEX". I really not believe people with 6 years of game experience left just because of 1 so little thing. He simply got bored and found "nice and loud reason to leave".

I can make thread "2 years old account is unsubbing because of jump bridge nerf". Will you say that this is good reason?
