Eve has changed. Eve is going to continue to change in a very distinct direction - CASH SHOP MT Game with Spaceships theme.

Theres just no way around it anymore.

EVE is in the early stages of becoming a full blown CASH SHOP MT Game.

I think CCP did what they could to try and hide it, sugar code it, sneak it, play Crafty Iceland mans.... But it failed.

And so now, we are in the "Ok, but its happening anyways" phase.

I thought possibly they would sort of compromise, put some effort into trying to keep this playerbase around. But its painfuly obvious now, they have already come to terms with loosing this playerbase in exchange for a casual Cash Shop playerbase.

Its kind of insulting knowing they have written off this playerbase in favor of some future potential playerbase.

Here we all are, the loyal fanbase, the people who made VE what it is today... and CCP literaly just said @#$% you guys, were gonna destroy the game you guys like in favor of attracting a different playerbase.....

Serious, who knows if casuals even want to play a Spaceship Cash Shop game, etc etc.

Yet that decision was made. Its kind of offensive.

I unsubbed x3 accounts but I'm under no illusion that Eve will fail. My accounts mean nothing to CCP in the long term. As long as they have enough $$ to crank up the marketing machine they'll probably be fine.

I've just always hated games that have MT, subscription based or not. It just isn't for me.

Good luck to those that are staying, hope it works out for you.

And to think. All of this so they can sell monocles? wtf

Think about it.

On one side you have this whole playerbase. People who have been with CCP/EVE for YEARS. Multiple accounts. All those memories. Massive Alliances. Stations. Friendships. EVERYTHING that is EVE.

And its all been flushed down the drain so someone can sell monocles.....

Its disconcerting.

Well, now I really believe some intelligent people saying they are forced to do this (but it seems they genuinely like to do that at the end anyway).

I may sympathize for them even, but the end result is all they managed to do is to stick their middle finger through my wormhole. And then I realize I'd better start sympathizing for myself.
