Inquiring Minds want to know - why did you pick a door as the static screen for ppl who disabled CQ?
Was it just an insensitive pick or a pun, pointing people who don't like the feature towards the door, expressing something like "We took your money for the last 8 years, but if you don't like Barbie-Mode and badmouth our microtransactions, don't let the door hit you on your way out"?

c/d?

Actually, I was serious - it's not like some devs hadn't displayed some amount of trolling in the past.

They could have kept the old hangars as an option.
They could just have displayed the contents of the CQ Screen.
They could have used anything from CQ, but no - out of all things they could have picked from the 'vast' amount of 'interesting' objects in CQ, they have to ~show ppl the door~.

CCP occasionally drops hints like that for those willing to look.

Take for instance the examples evident in POS warfare, which nobody has ever liked.
Player Owned Structure/Starbase = "P.O.S."
Player Owned Outpost = "Poo"

And less scatalogically, what do you use to shoot structures? Dreads. As in, structure warfare is something you dread.

AHAHA nice. I too thought the door was a not so subtle message.

I was wondering the same thing this morning.

What - The - **** ? Why ? Why a door? i'm pretty much sure it's basically a way to insult us people who dont want their crap...

You didn't want to enter the station, I suppose they could have put you out the airlock without your pod.

In fact I bet there are a few devs right now who wish they had Razz

was i the only one who found it easy to imagine glenn beck speaking this? asking a question to a person who can't exactly respond, giving two equally mean reasons for why ccp chose the background, then giving an hyped-up reason that only points to ccp being a tool. man, you might as well draw this on a chalkboard.

1. How can CCP not respond on their very own forums?
2. Please go ahead and tell me why CCP has chosen this background above anything else they could have picked.

Maybe Mitnal is trolling us on his alt.
