Preliminary Draft

I have had much positive feedback (including outside this thread) and so began a preliminary draft. You can find it above! There is no massive change, merely explanations and expansions to the key notes.

In the interest of preventing conflict of interest from occuring, it will be assumed at as the draftee, Azelor Delaria is in support of the petition. The characters Quendishir and Anya Klibor will be prevented from offering support in this, as they are one-in-the-same.

This won't gain any traction, but I agree with the fundamentals. The CEO is the centerpiece for a given company and represents the measure of its ability and the scope of its vision. It really doesn't matter how noble the exchange of ideas can potentially be if the leadership has an iron lid on customer respect and service. The buck stops at the CEO and so does the responsibility for what CCP is doing to the customers it needs to keep.

EVE Online is a dying mmorpg, but I don't mean that in the sense that most people are going to take it to mean. EVE is dying because it is becoming more and more obsolete as time moves forward. It is only a matter of time before a serious SciFi mmorpg contender displaces EVE as the sandbox space game. So I can understand CCP's progressive moves in a direction that will diversify the IP and compliment the current playerbase with an even broader market with a distinctly stable history of loyalty.

But, as with anything, how you handle change is the marker by which the viability of your future is handled. You cannot disrespect your current player base for the sake of future proofing, because that will have the effect SOE already tested and failed at with SWG. EVE and SWG are two completely different games, but the base concepts of the coming changes are the same: appeal the product to a broader market than originally scoped. The problem is that you have to consider the current integration of the product with the market you already have.

Yes it is true that a company will never grow without new transactions and that accounts on the books are earned income. But keeping that earned income is paramount to maintaining a black bottom line. Perhaps CCP is taking a calculated risk with the loss of accounts vs the gains of the NEX, but it is a risk that is completely unnecessary and is only going to hurt the most important facets of the community: the credibility of CCP and the viability of EVE as a marketable product. All things stem from those two factors. You can't have a solid and loyal customer base without both of those things being maintained entirely.

Some of us love this game so much we invent new reasons to play or generate ideas to improve it, some of mine you have used in the past. But not even the most loyal customer can truly overcome losing one of the two aforementioned critical elements of the business foundation.

Do I know the magic fix for this? Possibly, but without all the relevant data on it, neither I nor anyone else is truly qualified to make the hard decision.

You can Mr. Pétursson. You can save this relationship with one paragraph. Many of us are waiting to see what happens, but you can be certain that you will lose more subscriptions if things are not resolved.

People are ****ed off and grieving because they think EVE is dying now, from a cause that can be completely averted with liberal application of the phrase "No, we are not."

I +1 this not for the fact that I believe it will oust Hilmar, which it will not, but it will shake his confidence in his vision and he might look towards a new way that is more in line with the players.

Even tho I have already stated my account (this one BTW) will be allowed to expire on July 18th, my reason is for the technical part of running the game period. I also am maintaining a neutral stance until such time that results will come out for the better of the community at large.

I also support the Vote of NO Confidence.

LOL.. you are so banned.

This is completely dis-respectful.

Are you a share-holder? Do you own a significant part of the company?

We are players/customers.. we don't run the company and it's completely up to the company with how they deal with the game. They own the game. You pay for the privilege of being able to play in THEIR world that THEY created. You don't own jack and your word don't mean jack.

To suggest such a thing is ridiculous!

(and i'm not saying I agree with everything CCP does.. i'm merely saying what an idiot you are Laughing)

It's a mutual agreement. I pay so they can provide. They disrepect me any way and I walk away. CCP was a company who caught me as a customer because they provided client-service. As in they provided an alternative to buying game changing items.

They are doing something wrong if their player base is constant as I got at least 5 friends to play EVE because of me. If they mess my EVE experience as it was and should remain I'm sure I will have support from them when leaving. Now consider how many others did the same as me, what will happen if CCP will upset groups of friends because of this.

We as players asked for improvements and bug killing. They would have won more subcribers if they did that as I was an avid lobbyist for EVE I am certain many more were lobbyists aswel.
