2005

Sony and Verant Management:
No one is going to quit the game due to these changes. They've invested too much time in their characters. Stop worrying. They'll accept the NGE.


2011

CCP Management:
No one is going to quit if we move Aurum toward non-vanity purchases. Our playerbase has years invested in this game. They are not going anywhere. Stop worrying.

ahhh, but you forget that SOEs next boneheaded statement went on to call those people the "vocal minority" and deemed their departure as acceptable losses for the good of SWG's future.

those who don't know history are truely doomed to repeat it Neutral

Disclaimer: This quote illustrates the overall perception of former Star Wars Galxies veterans who have migrated to EVE. We know our history, and any MMO company should learn from it.

That said, SOE didn't listen to us. Is CCP listening to us? Belatedly so, perhaps they are. It remains to be seen if they will take their listening skills to action.

I moved from Galaxies to EVE.

I don't know anyone else who did personally, but at this point, everyone has heard of that debacle ... or should have.

It took me all day to decide. But I finally cast my five votes with my wallet. I see EVE going the way of NGE in six months, or twelve, so why waste the time in between? I'll just play something else until they prove me wrong.

I'd at least wait until The Answer™, which was promised for today.

In true style the answer will not cover the actual issue, nor will it be satisfactory. And whatever the answer will be, it certainly won't be believed as that would require trust (unless the answer is "we're going full MT").

Probably. But benefit of the doubt and all that until I actually see and read it. And their plans are relative ... vanity is a who-cares item for me, adding in additional UI features (such as extra fittings) is concerning but won't make me quit, full-on play-to-win items being sold (like ammo) would cause me to move on.

A major concern is that Dust and World of Darkness fail and CCP is sold to a company like Sony or EA.

I fear that after all CCP has invested in Dust 541 and World of Darkness, that if either of those games fail, CCP will be forced to sell ... to a Sony or an EA. And then that will be the very end of EVE as we know it.

I did as well. 6 years ago. I even carried over my character's name to my main.

I canceled all three of my accounts last month.
