CCP, it is obvious to me that your upper management is making mistakes. I read about it on the forums every day. I propose that You let the players manage the company. There are several hundred professional business managers with years experience managing MMO's right here on this forum. You need to just post a sticky for the positions and be done with it.

/sarcasm.

Of course some people are going to come here and say that I am trolling for posting that. But I would like you to think for just a moment about how many people are actually doing what I said, only without the sarcasm. Coming into the forums and making assumptions about CCP's business decisions, and then claiming they could literally do a better job. That is absurd. If you could manage an MMO, you would.

I completely respect peoples right to say absolutely anything they want. However they must respect my right to take what they say with a grain of salt.

I am not saying CCP is perfect, as 'lapdog' accusations and 'dev alt' accusations apply currently to anyone who supports them in any way. I am just saying that if you are posting in this forum they know more about their business than you.

Anyway, naysayers may now continue to throw every name in the book at. Just remember who the troll is if you genuinely think you can do abetter job than CCP but aren't.

Reminds me so much of the CEO email quote that's been misquoted well over a thousand times now.

"We don't listen to our dirty ****ing trash cash cow golden egg laying ****tards of a player base."

Again, when someone else misquotes the email to make a point its legit...

It's paraphrasing, not misquoting. Rolling Eyes

Currently we are seeing _very predictable feedback_ on what we are doing. Having the perspective of having done this for a decade, I can tell you that this is one of the moments where we look at what our players do and less of what they say. Innovation takes time to set in and the predictable reaction is always to resist change.


mis quoted?

Oh I see what you did there

Bull****. Every single person that says CCP doesn't listen to its players is a direct misquote.

Some things are much more profitable and interesting to manage than an MMO. Just FYI...

But they watch what you do, and not listen to what you say. So this thread is useless.

I guess you could call it an alternative to thinking.
