What annoys me the most is when corporations use the cash from garbage like this to pay 'forum guides.' Forum guides are trolls, paid by the corporation to disrupt discussions. It's standard practice now for game developers to have a couple of paid shills on their books, looking for negative comments on forums and disrupting them with posts justifying the corporate line. If you look back though previous posts you can tell who they are.

I wonder about this sort of thing, too. Given CCP's astonishing lack of ethics and professionalism, it wouldn't surprise me at all that they employ such people. Yet another issue for CSM's to-do list.

But how do you differentiate the ccp paid shills from the ingame corp paid shills? Razz

Thats ccp's biggest problem tbh. They made a game that is very attractive to the less morally inclined and were suprised that the players would actually extend the same ruthlessness and conniving to the metagame too. Very Happy

If the goal of this games development turns to lizzard mode and maximum profit will get top priority, it will be really sad day for the content and future of entire product.

So... wait... getting content you'd WANT to spend money on because it's worth spending RL$ or ISK on (otherwise why buy it)...
... that is a sad thing ?
Laughing



Well I was referring to development which is focusing on making things what people are forced to buy. In other words things you can choose not to buy if you also choose to give really unfair advantage to those who will.

Perhaps I didnt say this clearly enough :)

CCP, I'd like to know where to send in my resume/application to become a corporate shill. Will gladly be paid to support and defend CCP's stances, no matter how ridiculous.

You're referring to the part where they specifically state they'll be offering this type of transaction, I assume.

99.8% sure I'm the only paid corporate shill, and I don't even do the best job at it sometimes. Maybe you should apply to replace me?

Hey kids, todays Sesame Street is brought to you by the whining babies at the EVE-ONLINE forums. These forums are a magical place where you can pull an idea from your rectum, tout it as a set-in-stone fact and then whine about it. Here you will find people who get their panties all in a knot about things that don't exist, have never been considered or are outright idiotic and then complain that these imaginary ideas from the land of butt-tastic are ruining "Their" game.

Be warned that these "butt-tastic" idea touters are resilient to all known forms of intelligent thought and discourse and can not be swayed from their anal-dwelling prophecies of impending doom. Enter at your own risk.

Sesame Street takes no responsibility for mental harm and or anguish caused by exposing yourself to such blatant nubtardery.

In other words folks, there is enough for us all to be worrying about with the development of this game that we love, so lets not make another rod for our backs eh? Failing that, perhaps try and realise that the game doesn't belong to you, it isn't your property and you have no rights other than those granted to you by the OWNER of the game.

TL;DR STFU, HTFU or GTFO

Heh, or you just wait the 30 min it'd take for someone to segement the stream nicely and upload it; you'd even get to avoid all the horrible buffering that whatever terrible CDN CCP will use this time, no doubt suffers from.

I guess we'll also be paying for Alliance Tourney HD? I guess it's a good weekend for me to set up a little '50mil per ip' stream proxy/s eh, cover my costs.

Caps lock ftw Hilmar Razz

EVE is hard enough to watch in HD stream, I certainly won't bother with the lowres stream when I can watch Firefly in HD instead ugh
So I won't be watching as I'm too cheap to pay for something that used to be free and encouraged community creation and participation.
I'm taking bets we won't be breaking any viewing records this year.

So when the HD stream has problems and keeps crashing etc (which it will do) Do we get our plex back or are your logs gonna show nothing?

All the presentations will be available on our YouTube channel within a week of Fanfest in HD, this includes all the presentations that didnít make it into the live show.

Yeah, but what about the microtransaction crap you get with the HD stream? I've seen this happen before. T shirts are the thin end of the wedge. Once people accept this garbage it will be multicolored ship hulls for 20 bucks, exculsive microtransaction boosters and implants and other such garbage.




What about it? Exclusive stuff, through an online store, it's a great addition to the game. For most people it's no different than ordering that pizza or picking up that case of Redbull, it's a choice *you* make.

And I guess years and years of free expansions means nothing to you, right?

Good luck with that.

Of course everyone would still be paying for this game every month if it hadn't been upgraded since 2003.

Good luck with that.

Microtransactions are the work of Satan.

If you need the isk that bad CCP, just raise the subscription prices ffs.

That's not Hilmar, silly.
...he didn't say AWSUM once.

Now, sounds like you just want an excuse to watch Firefly. It's okay - Firefly is great. Go watch it now, even, instead of whining on the forums.
Btw, for the most part you won't be watching EVE. You'll be watching people and listening to them speak. People are still pretty easy to see in lowres.

I'm tempted to pay for the HD version (with PLEX bought with ISK) and not watch it.
Why ?
Because I sure as hell can afford to Twisted Evil
...and because I'll be watching it for free on youtube later on anyway, since I'm busy doing something else when stuff happens live.

I'll be watching it free in hd on youtube so I can fast forward past all the stuttering morons when they ask their silly questions.

(this is in relation to the people whining about getting cosmetic items)

I don't know why I read these forums anymore. Every thread you have someone crying about something they don't want or don't like, mostly because they're terrified of change.

Guess what, if you don't change, you get left behind.

And to reply to the main topic at hand, Blizzard has been doing this for years.

Seems to be all the time "omg why are you changing anything, its the end of eve" and then when the expansion/whatever it was has arrived... guess what.. eve still here.. people still playing and if CCP wants to change what they just did.. "omg why are you changing it.. we like".. dude you *****ed about that earlier.. *facedesks*
