Since they have made a game that has kept me playing for around 6 years they are clearly not incompetent.


That CCP is not This CCP.

Past is gone.

edit: btw they did try to sell but as you can imagine the game is more a liability then an asset.
Too little money and too much work for it, with a bunch of hassle attached.
Result was laughter.

This was the turning point when CCP decided they needed microtransactions and more before they'd be an attractive buy.
Once microtransactions are in and there are avatars so they can say "see it's like WoW and they made money" then be looking for the sale announcement.

The hell with selling eve, sell white wolf. Since CCP merged with WW, the quality of eve online has only gotten worse. Instead of focusing on basics, they give us random shiny add-ons that amount to just another pile of **** on the side of a rotting corpse.

Still want the industry expansion.

Still waiting on the other 60% of dominion.

Still waiting on you to actually balance supercaps.

Still waiting on you to fix Faction Warfare.

Still waiting on T3 iteration.

But hey, the CQ and New characters look shiny. I guess I can meat spin for 2 years while I wait on CCP to iron out the ships in space part of eve.

why do people keep comparing black prophecy to EVE?!?

Yes, I'm in the beta. No, it is not EVE.

Twitch shooters in space =/= massive open sandboxes. If you wanted to play a multiplayer instanced flight sim there's plenty out there.

EVE is living in space simulator. black prophecy is not...

When exactly did all this happen? (and, "in a dream I had" doesn't count)

cant agree more, i just wish the current CCP realize that EVE is a space game and not a walking in space game.

CCP has great devs, just imagine if they had consultation from a company like Bethesda, Valve, Rockstar, or Epic Games.

Just sad isn't it? Hilmar tells himself that cosplay with vampire girls will be worth killing Eve for though.

They all left in a mass exodus years ago mate, since then the devs have very little understanding of Eve.

They're pretty crappy.

But so is every alternative
Valve.
Maybe. Valve certainly produces good content, but they also seem to have the worst case of developer ADD in the business (when CCP gets weird ideas, at least they stick with them for one, or maybe even two iterations Laughing)…

I don't think I'd trust them with driving continual progress with a single game for years on end.

Jumpgate and BP? I don't think so. But Guild Wars 2 is a possibility, its certainly gotten me interested and I'm not usually the swords and fairies type.

Dear Forum,

this thread is a joke, CCP is one of the few gamedevs who have vision. Do really wan´t that EvE will be selled to one of the non-innovative publishers and gamedevs ? Look at Crysis 2, nearly any innovation killed. CCP risk something a have visions like the vision trailer provides and that is why I am except some server problems sometimes. Because those guys are really a island of ivision in the ocean of dead brains.

So before CCP runs eve into the ground, i believe they should sell it to a competent company and walk away, before EvE turns into a ghost-town in the face of numerous new competitors (jump-gate, black-prophecy etc). Its already happening, so CCP should really think about this..

You have no idea how bad an idea that is... EA would probably buy it and turn Eve into SimSpace.

1. You are wrong.
2. You are talking about CCP from 3 years ago not WhiteWolf the new CCP.
3. They have already tried to sell and failed, hense all the candy being added to the game.

SLOW JOE, WHADDYA KNOW? Maybe he actually took the plunge and quit? Nah, I doubt that. Half the people whining on this forum are only doing so because they have empty little lives and feel the need to fill it with something. The other half are just trolls.

The people who honestly care about this game aren't here whining, they are off doing something about it. On the test server trying out the next patch and helping to try and improve it, or they have applied to work for CCP's volunteer staff, or they are making non-whiny constructive posts somewhere other than on GD.

The choices are clear.

I asked about this earlier in the thread and he chose to ignore it, presumably because he's just pulling nonsense out of his ass to try and stir up some trouble. Which he doesn't really seem to be doing.

My question is, at which point does CCP have to deviate from their 'vision' of EVE and start listening to our 'vision' of EVE?
Surely some involvement of the community (CSM?) is warranted or even needed to keep this game interesting for it's subscribers.
But where is the balance between what CCP wants and what the community wants?

I for one think that the whole walking in stations expansion doesn't quite fit the eve that I play, but others might not.

People constantly cry for more balance in the game (supercaps?) yet this game is supposed to be unforgiving.
training time + cost = power, seems like a pretty good formula to me, I am not a supercap pilot, but I could be if I wanted to.
I am not in a big powerful corp in nullsec, but again, I could be if I wanted to.
Power is all about the willingness to go out and get it.

Things would be unbalanced if only certain (groups of) people could get into a supercap, but in reality everyone can.

Not in the least, it's your deliberate mis-interpretation and taking the word out of context that's terrible.

Actually with the way ccp is nerfing missions, and any way to make a quick buck I think I might actually try Black Prophecy. It looks like it could be fun, although I'm not counting on it. Of course my loyalty to ccp has gone downhill due to their ever increasing nerf bat tendancies. They have the nerf bat, and I am the pinata. Rolling Eyes

Well if you will insist on clearly anti-social PVE hermit-like behaviour in the largest online multiplayer game, I should say so. Your pinata-form must be a completely smooth pebble by now, given all the grinding you must have done.

Shocking attitude to have, truly shocking.
