Excelent article, well written and captures all the major aspects of the current troubles within Eve.

Eve is, and will always continue to be, shaped by the actions and the will of the players. We are the story writers of this Universe; any attempt to remove that power will kill the game.

A very good read, especially the closing line.

One thing is clear: EVE is currently deadlocked in the greatest battle of its history, and if either side loses, no-one wins.

Good article.


"Rightly or wrongly, there is a sentiment within the community that the developer would be foolish to ignore - that CCP is merely the caretaker of a hard-knock school that the players built for themselves. The subscriptions may belong to CCP, but the world belongs to its community." - John Bedford, EUROGAMER.

Excellently written article! Thanks for the link Arias!

"A driving factor in the success of Eve Online has been the trust that binds a developer's uncompromising vision to an audience desperate for a unique and compelling experience. An explicit acknowledgement that the developer sees that audience as "a golden goose" has damaged that relationship."

Definitely worth reading it. I find myself in complete agreement with the author.

An interesting thought occurred to me while reading that article.

How did the bean counters at CCP not realize that there is a reason why EVE is called Spreadsheets in space?

And that perhaps people who are willing to play such a game might be a bit more aware of where their money goes than some little tweenager paying for power-ups in BFH with their SMS.
