Living in the NC was probably the least fun i've had in EVE. Napfleets and hac roams 80 jumps away to avoid ruffling blue feathers was absolutely obnoxious. Ofc, anyone who wanted to war with someone interesting immidiately felt the wrath of the drama llamas who spent 23 hours a day running sanctums and *****ing into intel channels about how the lone cloaker scared them awawy from all the isk they were making.

I got podded by a smartbombing Hyperion today, in my High Grade slave set.
All up nearly a 3 bil loss.

I'd say that was one of my worst experience so far Confused

Not really "worst", as this is a part of EVE too, but probably the most humiliating one.

I went for this or that reason somewhere in a shuttle, Rens to Jita I think. I found I can cut my route by some 10 jumps by going through lowsec. Lowsec has no bubbles, so I should be pretty safe, right? Well about halfway through the journey someone in a battleship with smartbombs proved me otherwise. Well, there goes a +4 clone...

I don't know if I was half asleep or only half awake or what, but I decided to immediately take the same route again in a pod. Without even thinking about updating my clone. Embarassed

I still have Weapons Upgrades IV and Advanced Weapon Upgrades IV. Smile

After reading the entirety of that dev blog I still cannot see where you're coming from.

Would you mind actually confirming your argument with quotes etc. that show that CCP have abandoned Eve for 18 months?


If you insist.

Some gems from the last CSM minutes :

It was mentioned by CCP that the data does not seem to support that polished quality sells better than new features.

CCP stated that once Incarna and planetary interaction with its link to Dust are fully implemented, focus will probably shift far more towards improvement of existing features.

The CSM suggested a dedicated 'polish team' to be established, with players being informed as to what they intend to work on during each expansion. CCP´s answer to that is that there will be no polish patrol team for the next 2-3 expansions even though players feel there should be.

CCP stated that FW is not a priority and no FW-related changes will be considered until after Incarna and Dust.

A specific Low Sec expansion is not on the 18 month plan

The winter expansion will focus on polish of existing features, mainly planetary interaction, and preparation for coming expansions. The aim is to include new character modeling, which involves new technology and new artwork.

CSM remained unconvinced of CCPs commitment to excellence, even after Nathan's arguments were heard.

CSM firmly stated its belief that CCP is on the wrong track in directing their development power into new things that the players have no faith in while acknowledging that the old things need attention.


Regarding the 'damage control' Dev Blog :

Thinly disguised team working on stuff for another MMO :
Incarna (9 teams, approximately 70 developers)

Stuff I couldn't care less about :
Dust 514/EVE link (1 team, approximately 7 developers)

EVE Gate (1 team, approximately 10 developers)
I had planned on using them to fix fleet lag but was talked out of it - Epic Damage Control Fail Shocked

Total : 87 devs working on useless crap

vs REAL EVE stuff

In-space features (3 teams, approximately 22 developers)
The others! (4 teams, approximately 15 developers)

Total : 37 devs working on EVE proper

I've read every blog since then and the (few remaining) devs working on EVE do fine work.
But nowhere does CCP say they will allocate more resources to EVE.
If more than half your devs are working on Sims X, Farmville Y and COD Z instead of your core business, i.e. EVE I call abandonment a fair description.

It's CCP's money so they can do what they want with it.
But I paid it, so I feel justified in expressing my opinion on how they use it.

Lost a dramiel. Thanks to blackscreen. LOGS SHOW NOTHING! Thanks, CCP. Like it's MY fault YOUR pos-game blackscreens.

I knew I was followed to a station but then trying to undock...blackscreen and death.

I would say ****poor customer service.

While I agree with you on the annoyance factor there is one thing I wanted to point out,

"EVE Gate (1 team, approximately 10 developers)
I had planned on using them to fix fleet lag but was talked out of it - Epic Damage Control Fail Shocked"

That part was actually a joke taken out of context. That team is a web development team and having put them on fixing fleet lag would have resulted in some nasty side effects... Seeing as they don't actually have any experience in that sort of development/code.

That part made me flinch when I first read it as well until I read further info on it and the statement was clarified as a joke.

Given the situation it was a pretty tasteless joke, that most people would have took at face value (especially given the "**** ccp" mindset that was rife at the time).

The first time I read it I saw "I had planned on using them to fix fleet lag but was talked out of it," I had to read it twice to see they were web developers.

Oh trust me.. I completely agree with that considering when it was stated. It would be one thing if everything was golden with no issues. But another thing entirely under these circumstances.

The worst experience in Eve?

I'd say losing my 1st ship ever :) Yeah, it seems to be really funny now that I look at it. Basically I knew very little, since I just started. I still kind of ignore missile skills because of that. At least in comparison to my gunnery skills they are pretty much ignored. In short: I am given a nice shiny Breacher and it took me ages to compile some “kick-ass” fit for it. Then I fly into a lvl1 mission and start targeting things and shooting, w/o realizing that my rockets do not reach anything (didn’t know anything about missile mechanics involving flight time, etc), so I just aggroed whole room which proceeded to pummel my fail-fitted death machine Breacher, lol
Hell, that was quite a blow to self-esteem, well, after playing games where one doesn't lose anything upon “death” that is..

Now, I just have to comment on the whiny part that some people never fail, or should I say - they do fail to restrict themselves from plugging it in every bloody hole on the forums, whenever they seem to get the urge to vent and moan. Yes, “experience in Eve” thread doesn't really qualify for that.
Saying that, I'll admit that it made me reply in the end, and all I have to say is:

1) People should be glad that CPP as a developer still supports the game running Eve cluster in the 1st place. How many small niche games like this exist anyways? If one takes in account how many alt accounts exist in Eve – how many people play realistically? And CPP still finds it worth it.

2) Old and well-established players basically can pay with Plex provided by newcomers who decide to give Eve a shot. New expansions will bring in new people (“oh noes – wowplayers are coming” next argument I hear). Dust, Incarna – whichever, those will bring new people to this stagnant pool of “hardcore” old-timers, and some may actually cheer and say “yay, fresh meat, hooray for cannon fodder.” Then if Dust is a console only, it still may interest the console players in Eve itself.

3) So-called “unnecessary” shinies (i.e. Incarna)… That’s very subjective in the very first place. Hmm, I think walking in stations going to beat the crap out of spinning ships in your dock, don't you think? Plus nobody knows what released version going to bring into the game, but people still love to judge based on FW and then they toss unresolved lag and other issues on top. In the end – eye candy is another way to bring new people, and to keep people playing. Other companies release new games while abandoning older projects pretty much, but they profit from sales of new products or expansions, etc.

Before I get labeled as a fanboi, I'd like to mention that I have plenty of issues with the game myself, yet I try to look at things realistically. Basically, whatever service you get for your monthly fee (that is if you even pay anything now – if you are an OK player - it is a free game pretty much. Why the obvious should even be stated?) is way less than what CPP probably spends to maintain it after this many years.

Kinda like you pay taxes and you don't care how your government spends it...you're the idiot, my good sir.
Which makes you an idiot to believe that your opinion matters again - government really cares to ask you how to spend the taxes, amirite? ugh

Would have to go with asking my youngest to keep on eye on the retriever as the wife wanted to to relocate a wall hanging...and to repair the previous installation damage!

Now it wasn't his fault for responding to the theft of ore....as I told him if it's red shoot it - he took it for granted to shoot the ore thief too....unfortunately. Lost my 4year old Erin for that... loved that module Embarassed

You don't like how they spend it ? Vote them out of office.
You don't like the game no more ? Cancel your account.

Of course, the analogy might be a bit too complicated for your ******ed brain...

Well, it's too complicated for me too, care to enlighten me?

The only similarity I see is that your voice alone won't be heard in both cases. Which enforces mr. Tanthalassa's point.

Anyhow, maybe it would be nice to get back on topic, it's funny how most threads turn into OMG FIX LAG whinefests

My worst experience was losing my first Ferox to a single BS gate camp. Had it fitted with heat sinks and whatnot, everything I could find I put on my beloved Ferox.

I loaned the money for the ship from a friend, took me long enough running L2's in my caracal to pay him back and buy myself a new one, only to find that flying an unrigged Ferox with my skillset at that time into a L3 wasn't such a great plan Sad.

Oh man now you've brought back a memory of nearly an identical situation that happened to me on my first Ferox with an alt. Right down to having bought it with loaned ISK. ;)

And before anybody asks why I was flying a Ferox instead of a Drake -- Well drakes didn't even exist then. And besides I actually liked the Ferox. ;)

Well Drakes already existed when this happened to me, I just didn't know Drakes were better Sad... Plus the Ferox did look better. I still fly the pimped up version (Nighthawk).
