It's hostile because people get cranky when they can't play their game.

Its hostile because there is a HUUUUUUUUUGE disconnect between those that actually pay to play this game and those that actually make it.

oh the irony...

For 10 months I used these forums as a cure for my "Want-to-resub-to-eve-itis" ... then about 50 days ago, I was getting a flare up and I came by to see the flaming .. in order to lose interest in eve again.


What I saw was much worse, it was compassion and intelligence, and almost NO flaming... I was shocked, I read more threads, more intelligence, little flaming... how it has changed in just 50 short days.


What gives? Well I played eve for about 7 months the first time, I cringed at the bugs, but people said don't worry CCP will fix em, I saw new content delivered, I liked it, then there were new bugs, and people said don't worry CCP will take care of it... they persisted, there were imbalances and things that seemed so EASY to fix, things that if they were in any other MMO I would quit, as I would think they didn't have their shi*t together, but NOPE CCP did, they cared, they were working hard to make sure the old stuff got fixed, and I don't mean updated, but actually fix ERRORS...

Well then at the last CSM meeting we found out that CCP doesn't think they need to fix the errors and well I think it shocked the hell out of people... I believe many people thought that CCP was going to one day just fix the stuff they said they would, that they would add meta levels to list view, that they would... the list goes on and on ... screenshots from 2007 released from CCP show an AMAZING HUD and layout of weapons and targets ... we thought we'd get it someday we didn't ... why? well it looks like they think we'll just keep playing their amazing game while they make it even more amazing, and who really cares about those little things...

Wall of text crits you for 10,000.02 <<< don't forget that 0.02 is VERY important to display, ccp hot fixed that when it stopped showing up

The eve forums have always been hostile. There is alot of rabble rabble at the min due to ccp not going about things the right way and that has caused alot more QQ threads than normal and rightfully so. Other than that tho that is just how eve-o is ingame and out of game and thats how we like it.

now **** off and die(ingame)

I don't think there's a giant disconnect, and I pay to play this game.

I understand the angst over fleet lag, but I don't think it's accurate to say they don't care about it. Not when they're working on their 'fleet fights in a can', and hosting mass lag tests, and optimizing things in Tyrannis, and assigning multiple people to the issue, and giving updates on what they're doing to address it. You don't do these things if you don't care about an issue -- especially when it comes to having people work on the issue. People cost money, after all, and businesses don't devote money or people to something that they don't think affects them.

This forum is increasingly reminding me of the Everquest Gameplay forums from years back, which were notorious for the rage spewed there (admittedly, I participated in those forums, though I like to think I wasn't as bad as some were!). If I recall correctly, they shut down that forum at one point -- it had ceased to be productive to have it open, and it didn't really represent the bulk of the people playing the game, even if there were some real issues at stake.

Whatever issues people might have with the game, the overheated rhetoric and hate just doesn't help anyone, and doesn't help move this process forward. I could understand putting some pressure on CCP if they were pretending a particular issue doesn't exist, or insisting that, say, fleet lag doesn't need to be addressed at all, but none of those things are the case here. I mean, really, do you guys and gals think that these endless hatethreads are actually helping CCP find the source(s) of the lag issue?

People keep saying, "Yeah, but this didn't happen before Dominion!" Maybe not, but if this was as simple as pulling out a change or two to make fleet lag go away, don't you think they'd have done that already, and saved themselves the trouble of all these lag tests? I doubt that they'll revert Tranquility to Apocrypha 1.5, either (I doubt they even could at this point). It really sucks that a new patch would introduce issues -- very frustrating, since normally newer versions of software are supposed to work better -- but they are where they are, now. They know they have an issue and are trying to fix it. Constructive criticism, fine -- but I don't see what purpose all the rage serves.

Its advertisement really. We advertise our profile for ingame purpose. Alot of Eve is about being a yarr, a hard ass. So you advertise that way on the forum.

Shut up man, his name is awesome. He took a word that had an I in it and replaced it with a Y and that's roleplaying gold right there. Like vampyres and blood wyne.
You just don't understand how awesome and original it is.

Pretty much this. 20 prissed off players can seem like they represent all of eve on the forums once you get the alt brigade into play.

When people can hide behind avatars they think they can act however they like, and unfortunately most of the time they are right.
