Okay, I have one other thing to say.

CCP, I could seriously do a really good job. Dammit, I'm going to have to apply for this next one in Sept. I'm energetic, enthusiastic, and know a lot about all facets of eve.

Oh man :(

I can already predict their coverage on events

Beefy Fiddler : Okay. He's webbefied. You can tell his webefied by graphical effects. Webbefiers are used to web people.

Fangtooth Kasumi : Right you are Beef, he may also be scrambled. Its common for people to fit both webbers and scramblers here in EVE. I webbed a lv1 misison drone last night. It was great fun.

Beefy Fiddler : Oh I bet you are good at it too (flirts with eyes)

ffs, it was bad enough to see that Ifni was the "expert" in the tournaments...

Looks like eve-tv is going for "soap-opera of the year"

I think I missed something here.


I think he's trying to say you're sexy.

Sweet! I thought he was bashing my e-honour. Turns out, he's just caressing my e-peen!


Iffers is the queen of Eve-Tv, I'll have you know.

Doesn't really matter though, If Masta Killa isn't back, I'm not watching even if they put Stephen Hawkins, Brian Blessed and Jessica Alba on the panel.

Can you make them in game items that I can horde in my station hanger?

I think I'd enjoy playing with my exotic dancers and StevieSG XD

What I actually want to say is that EveTV is now I joke, and I doubt I'll bother watching even the first episode for free.

Good luck to CCP getting the playerbases respect back for this.

Overtly corporate game devs ftl, you'd think 200k*10 a month would be enough.

wow, some people need to put the e-rage down and step away from the keyboard... Eve TV hasn't even started yet and people are already bashing it hard Shocked If the concept of having presenters who aren't vastly knowledgeable offends you so much then there is a simple solution: don't watch it (you may want to stop watching televised news as well while your about it, if you haven't already). Personally I'm going to give it a chance, it should be pretty entertaining. Though why Eve TV feels the need to hire extra eye candy when they have Spiral is beyond me Razz

Yeah, people who have no idea about what they are talking about pretending to know what they are talking about.

What can possibly go wrong?

That sums up pretty much any televised news program and they've been doing it for years. A presenter is not the same as an analyst.

Anyhow, like I said, if the idea is so unpalatable to you then don't watch it. It could well be crap but equally it could well be excellent, give it a chance before you dismiss it.

Thats not the issue most people have. Their issue is that they would have to pay first, before dismissing it.

isnt that why they always invite "experts" to talk about subjects? and then they ask uber unlogical questions and the "experts" are like "ah .. yeah, offcourse?"

sounds funny Smile

Aren't we the welcoming bunch of players? lol

But seriously, I love introducing noobs to the game, especially in 0.0 space Twisted Evil, but to host a TV show about a game - 1st priority: trained actor or passion, love and experience of the game about which the TV show covers?

    Sounds like CCP is listening to producers and not consumers.

    Classic formula for a canceled show.

    Eve TV should have ingame player personas. Real people. A TV show about an MMO should have community involvement.

    Seeing 4 strangers that can ready cue cards with a smile while talking about gaming while probably never having played a game in their life?

    That's what Tech TV is for. They do it well, I seriously doubt a show about a niche game that can't even fill its ranks with people who know the game, the politics, the humour and the going ons within the universe will be very entertaining for long.

    Almost as entertaining as these Eve "news" bulletins about stuff that never happened. How about some 'real' ingame news. Like a new Alliance taking over a piece of space, or interviews with successful anti-pirate corps and how they are cleaning up the system. Reports on ingame economy, or player run events.

    Never seen a "player-run" MMO want to become WoW so fast.

    We're not sexist!

    Btw, remember that thread about "whats the most evil thing you've done in Eve"? One guy scrambled some miners who couldn't pay the ransom and forced them to mine Veld for him for some hours.

    So ... send the Eve-TV girls my way and I (wait for it ...) make them mine.

    (Yes, this one requires some thinking) Laughing

    To be quite honest I think Farjung should be doing some hosting work, need to get some alcohol in him first to loosen him up so he's not all quiet like last time I saw him.

    Of course none of our suggestions are really going to matter at all.

    However, I'd watch it religiously if it was like this.

    spiralJunkie and Farjung as the main hosts.

    Military segment - Ermey doing his Hartman bit.
    Piracy - Geoffrey Rush doing his Captain Barbossa character (Sorry Johnny Depp fans)
    Science, Manufacturing, etc - Bill Nye
    Trade - Donald Trump
    Carebearing 101 - Stephanie from Lazytown.

    So it could go like this.

    spiralJunkie: Yadda yadda,
    Farjung: ...
    spiralJunkie: *witty joke*
    Farjung: *muffled schoolgirl giggle*

    Then the military segment, which I've already give an example of earlier.

    Piracy segment,

    Barbossa : First, the return of your ore was not part of our negotiations nor our agreement, so I must do nothin'. And secondly, you must be a pirate for the Pirate's Code to apply, and you're not. And thirdly, the EULA is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules. Welcome to low-sec ye damn carebear!

    Science segment

    Bill Nye: Hey, thanks for dropping by, I see you can see my datacores of SCIENCE! *trumpets blare* Datacores are useful tools when inventing new and useful products for the world we live in, it's science! *trumpets blare* Ahh..ahem, here is an experiment you can try in your own station, you'll need the help of an adult..

    Trade

    Donald Trump: If you want to make it big in the world of business, you're going to have to skimp on the frills, you're going to have to pinch every penny, see this hair? Wal-Mart hair salon, see these shoes? Stole them from Payless.


    Carebearing

    Stephanie:
    It's a piece of cake to fly through Amamake, if the way is hazy
    You gotta do the warping on your own you know you can't be lazy
    Never use an autopilot see, the trip will end up crazy




    Freaking Win.

    Sorry, I didn't read any of the thread after this post. You actually had me laughing so hard at work that I got in trouble. Well played.

    If Farjung was a host they'd have to charge at least twice the amount of Jalipo credits per episode, to cover the cost of his hair conditioner.

    I would pay triple what they're asking for 45 minutes of low quality streaming if Gary Busey was doing commentary on the action.

    They should get R. Lee Ermey (The drill instructor from Full Metal Jacket) to do a segment on proper fittings for PVP.

    "YOU LITTLE scumBAG, ARE YOU TRYING TO FIT SMALL AUTOCANNONS ON THAT KESTREL? HOLY JESUS, TO THINK THIS HAD TO HAPPEN TO ME!"

    "If you ladies leave my island, if you survive recruit training, you will be a weapon. You will be a minister of death praying for war!"
