What's that brown stuff on your nose..?

Might I remind you that if you walked into a store and got the service from a clerk behind the counter as CCP offer up (namely in their petitios) you'd punch them in the throat.

Might I also remind you that we're paying (a lot) for this 'Revelations Beta' nonsense.

170k subs @ 14.95 = $2,541,500/month

Forive me but, appreciation's due when things get fixed. As it is, EVE is broken in MANY ways.

To some, it isn't broken at all. And some, don't go assaulting rude clerks either.

*lifts hand*

Though if i don't appreciate them, will they spank me? Very HappyVery HappyVery Happy

Anyhoop, please don't use the "your subs make THIS much money" when you neglect the cost of keeping the game up, free expansions, free client, content developement, office rents and so forth.

well truely ccp do a great job. You people out there that whine really don't understand how hard keeping a huge game like eve goin is. I do computing at college and just debugging a simple calculater is flipping hard and takes along time.

CCP have to debug and develop an entire mmo with less then 200 people on the payroll. Its goin to take along time and the code would be as confusing as hell.

But yea CCP really do a good job with the resources that they have.

Expansions are not free. Unless they're using elves to make their content, CCP will be paying their content staff using this thing we call money. Money that they get from, shock awe, our subscription fees.

Also the client isn't free. The first time you pay for a new account is more expensive than normal - this is the cost you'd normally pay if you went into a store and bought a copy of the client on a cd off the shelf.

Also also, you can't seriously believe that staff salaries, rental fees and server costs really cost them anything near 2.5 MILLION dollars a month? Expensive, yes. That expensive, hell no.

/me salutes CCP. And it's the polite, formal salute, not the rude two-fingered one which I am currently directing to the the whingebags with my other hand.

AND WHINGE IS A WORD, before anyone comments... Mad

Expansions: Well, they are free compared to other MMO's. Subscription is a MMO standard.
The client fee: Well, it's quite minimal if i remember correctly. Compared to say, Guildwars box.

Now, the cash thingy: LEt's start with 200 employees who would get a 2.5k sallary on average(might be high, might be low, but around that). There's a good .5 million allready. And on THAT, you have to add the vats, healthcare, whatnot fees. It's counted that one employee costs about 1.7 of the fee he's paid. So, around 750k is about right for pay alone. Office fees, well, don't know about iceland, but i think housing 200 people and other stuff would require, well, let's say a good 150k a month for rent. How about food or drinks for those 200? Company moral fees(like company days out)?

I worked for a smaller company, around 30 people, and they spent, on simple company management(sallaries, rent, whatnot) in 6 months, a good million+ euros.

It's amazing how high it amounts, if you saw the figures, you'd agree.

And like any company, they can't feed us ALL of the money. It's a business, not a charity.

Oh also forgot to mention that companies pay taxes from income too. That 2.5mil ain't that accurate a figure.
