CCP Eris Discordia

Posted - 2007.06.22 13:10:00 - [1]
 

All the girls at CCP have had power meetings at the coffee machine and set up a plan of action to get some fun stuff to happen at Fanfest for the women attending. Some of you may think no women will be at a game meet up but we expect to see a lot more of us this year. For one, all the female devs are attending. With CCP recruiting massively, we gained a lot of female devs in the last year.

Plans are contingent upon how many women EVE players are attending, so be sure to indicate in your registration that youíre female. The more the merrier and the more activities we can plan in advance. If you know a few girls who play EVE, let them know that there will be a lot of other women at Fanfest and they will be made welcome by everyone, especially by all the ladies of CCP.

Iíll keep this thread updated and answer any questions, but itís too early to spoil or hint at what we are planning, but take my word for it, itís going to be fun.

Now now, keep it clean. We all know that, aside from Eris, there are no girls on the intarwebs. I like the idea of lots of fun at Fanfest, it's just too bad I can't go this year.... Crying or Very sad

Please no hired actors at Fanfest posing as "Gamer girls."

Also, make the EVE TV crew more representative of the community? Three chicks, who are probably communication / art majors in college somewhere right now, desperate for a job to get on their resume, doesn't exactly convince us.

REAL gamer chicks! Please!!!

*EDIT* I'm not convinced about Eris yet, but here's your proof.

As far as I know there are no plans to hire girls to say they play EVE, we just want to the girls that do play EVE to know that they are welcome by all of CCP, especially by all the girls working for CCP.


From the comments here it looks like some of you are volunteering to wrestle eachother in mud and bikini. You do realise its a bit cold in November he?

You have my sympathy Eris. I know what you are trying to accomplish and I wish you the best. It's going to be a real pain to pull off and win the trust of the women out there.

While I realize that most of the posters here are responding in a tongue-in-cheek manner. I see that things haven't changed since I started online gaming back in the Quake 2 days. Anytime anyone purported to be female, the unwashed minions would either hit on very blatantly and stupidly or make crude remarks about women in general or specifically at that woman. You'd think we'd be past that 12 years into the online world but I guess not. Instead the second player post is calling for a bikini contest. :(

My wife is a gamer, has been for as long as we've known each other which is about 15 years now, married 13. She plays COH and WoW. (She doesn't want to play Eve to complicated she says. Truth is she's a cuddly carebear. <3) She gets harrassed in games that are more friendly to women than anything out there. The level of misogny in those women friendly communities is bad but it's not nearly as bad as it is here. Then again the level of maturity shown on these forums by all parties, players and devs, at times reminds me of the stereotypical "Animal House" fraternity.

Anyhow, enough old man grumping from me. Here's to the hope that some more maturity shows up and that your event at the gathering for the women of Eve goes well.

They have bikini's in Iceland? Brrrr!


Iceland has volcanos, thus warm water, thus bikini.

Gads, the number of horny little boys posting would guarantee I'd not attend if I was female. No wonder so few women play these games, or at least don't play openly as women.
