All lvl 5 skills on Singularity for a 24 hour period (after a fresh mirror)


Aralieus beat me to it!

This! : )

In general though Tanis - maybe you could make this a permanent feature of Sisi if you don't mind. I know I for one and a few of my corpies would be much more inclined to get on Sisi if we had this option. It would just be nice to see what these skills do since it will be years before we fly stuff like a Titan, etc.

Hmm tempted to say, customersupport so maybe something would be answeard by a human and not a macro.
But the effort, you can just take a random system now and monitor it. You dont need 500 players, 4 is enuf atm Laughing

The ideas came from the EVE Content and GM teams. I'm not sure why they're so fixated on me being in a dress, but who am I to question their insane desires? Wink

Feel free to suggest your own as well. If I lose, we'll add the most popular suggestion (assuming it's feasible) into the options for voting at the end.


Nevermind the dress. Sit in an Ibis in hi-sec with a small bounty on you, and let newbs blow you to pieces all day long!

I will bet you that you will not fix the server lag or anything else until after you release the final versions of PI,DUST and WIS. I will return in 36 months to collect. I know one of your fellow CCP employees said 18 months, but 18 months is really 36 months in CCP time.

As humorous as a 30-something male in Woman's undergarments and a wig would be, I'd much rather have some videos, pictures and some dev blogs on the Incarna/DUST 514 developments. I absolutely loved watching the videos and reading up from all the goodies from last fanfest and being that there isn't to be one this year, why not shovel over some tasty info on your (CCP's) latest work? I'm very excited to see all this new content that I'm sure you've all been working diligently on for the past 12 months. Obviously it's a long shot, but figured I'd request it nevertheless.

How about this bet: If we get more than 1000 players turn up to all 3 events, you do the following:

Fix the game killing lag.

Yeh ok obvious troll is obvious but heh, I would turn up for fleet testing myself if it wasn't always scheduled at about 4am australian time for me.

Maybe something like a small skillpoint award for those who log into singularity and show up in X system. Then battle royale for lag testing.

Was a fleet fight notification filed for this current fight?


Hi, welcome to Eve. Name 'T20' mean anything to you?

As far as I'm aware, it's really quite difficult to predict if people are going to turn up on the field of HONOR and even more difficult to consider filling out the paperwork to notify someone that it's going to happen. Plus that whole 'T20' affair made people really suspicious. Again, not to put too fine a point on it, the sharpest tools in all of Eve, the ISD, have been reporting on that particular handbag fight. I'm guessing the logs show absolutely nothing, though.

I would like to help out if it aided towards getting some of the many issues fixed.

But since I cant even log into singularity due to the fact my account is not old enough I'm more or less out of options now aren't I.

Keep holding them during the USA Work day, during the week, keep getting no input from a large part of your player base...

Provide 100,000 SP for each account that takes part in the fleet battles and you'll undoubtedly meet your mark.

Offering us pics in a kilt as an incentive is pretty insulting to what I figure is a pretty intelligent community. You really think we love you so much that we will say "oh yes gosh what fun a dev in a kilt"?How about GTFO or offer a real incentive.

Yet another wonderful foot in mouth moment from CCP.

You guys really dumb where PR is concerned.

Hey CCP,
I'm pretty sure the reason for the bad turnout has nothing to do with wether or not people want to get on Sisi and help.

the typical gamer isn't computer savy and does not know or have the patience to be bothered learning about computers, Not enough to clone sisy and pobably loose their last bit of confidence when they run into the warning message telling them not to F### it up.

That being what it is. If you really want to keep the general public out of sisi most of the time except when you need their help then you are going to have to leave a link in their news that links them to a patch that will do everything they need.

After your test is done go back and make it incompatible, and remove the DL genie from the news.

After your professional patches crashed both my wifes and my own PC's. (Can you say FUBAR!! It's kind of like HTFU only it cost 3k) yeah she won't let me touch HER new laptop I replaced her junked, won't even turn on PC with.
You might understand why I was terrified the first time a friend lead me through the sisi patch. (on MY new laptop) I made him help me the next 2 times the auto update failed before I got comfortable enough to do it myself.

The average gamer is used to playing a game not running a computer.

Just my .3k Cents.

Chopps



P.S. Can you fix the lag? It's murder on laptops.

Step 1: Ask for our help (completed)
Step 2: Make sisi work with the regular client for mass tests
Step 3: Reward a small amount of SP to participants for their time
???
Step 4: PROFIT!

oh I don't know... maybe because testing with the actual client in use first is considered good practice ?

But then it's not like I spent years doing QA or anything Rolling Eyes.

After that, you add a simple non-intrusive way for people to automatically generate a sisi setup from their regular one (here's a though place a "help us test!" button on the login screen to run the script) RATHER than requiring people who may not be computer savvy to perform folder operations. Add to that a tiny bit of incentive like skillpoints, and you can go try out some fixes.



P.S. Also please note that I am agnostic, and I find your insinuations of believing in a man in the sky offensive.

Maybe they have done enough testing with the actual client and these patches are to test the changes in the client to see if the fix they made works or not.

Just sayin.....

None of the above stupid and childish idea. This is Eve, not WoW; your player base is about 20 years more mature.

Give everyone who participates in the mass testing a SP bonus, say 10,000, to be distributed as they see fit.

Simple, easy, fair. Mature

I guess you didnīt want that mass test participation anyway.

What he said. This does seem to be a particularly epic amount of effort to go to in order to avoid dressing up for a day...
