I have watched this debate since it broke with a slight smile on my face, don't all the people who freaked out feel a little embarrassed ? I would say you need to man up mate if you want to make it in real life ! ffs it is a game !

1) Who cares if you can pay to advance in the game? It is only a game and superior tactics and gameplay outweigh any advantage over a % more dps

2) you can already buy implants, ships et all from isk bank ! A titan costs about 1K ( and incase yo didn't realise that is what the DRF and PL do)

3) I would pay for gold ammo !

4) if you notice it is a small Minority of player who are freaking out and if they do leave the game as they keep saying they will then the problems solved isn't it? so we shouldn't see any replies to this thread from them should we ? ( but we all know they will bit because they cant help it and live to troll )

Just so we don't get a slew if these beating up in the knee jerkers type threads popping up, just note that although they were wrong this time, doesn't make their desire to keep the game true unwanted.

now, about the golden ammo, as long as long ad that stuff drops, whoever paid to magic it into existence really doesn't much matter. If however it magically reapears in their hanger instead of dropping then no thank you :-)

People put years in to EvE and lavish hundreds sometimes thousands of dollars in subs and plex and everything else on their characters. A few people think this entitles them to 'more' than just customer status. They are wrong.

However: The idea is that there is a covenant in a subscription based REAL TIME skill training game. An understanding. If that understanding is declared 'old hat' by the developer they risk alienating customers.

That is what happened. Although a lot of it was hot air and paranoia it did suggest that a lot of people would not tolerate their investment and very un-ironic emotional attachment to their characters and the game at large being fscked with.

Ultimately nothing matters in a pretend world but obviously people will be extremely worried and prone to over-reacting when there are blatant trolls/leaks/statements hinting at or directly calling for MT and P2W content in a game as uniquely enduring and complex as EvE.

There's more to it of course and more perspectives - many of which are just plain stupid. But for my money, that's the crux of it.

LOL

No Im not embarassed at all. Im quitting, taking my millions of SP and billions of ISK with me locked up in my account, and never returning to EVE. Through this fiasco CCP has lost 4 accounts. $60/mo may not be a lot to them, but its a trickle that will turn into a flood.

Bottom line is, they dont respect you,and they dont respect me. They have miss-treated their customers through their blatent attitudes and disdain. This company is falling apart.

I was hoping that this issue would give them pause to re-consider their actions and correct their course, much like the mass protest of a year ago when something similar happened. The player base was very angry then about new shiney content being added all the time and fundamental issues not being fixed, and that didnt jive with Hilmar's desire to get new subs so he could develop other games and pay down his debts. They promised then to listen more and do more, but it didnt result in much, and its obvious to me their attitudes have NOT changed.


Well too F'ing bad. Hilmar is still a douche, and CCP is a very problematic company. I'm putting my money where my mouth is. I said I was done with CCP, and I am.

Fool me once, shame on you, Fool me twice, shame on me. And this is certainly twice, so the responsibility is on me to take my business elsewhere.

It's all about money stupid. I don't like being screwed over.

Does your PR firm charge CCP an hourly fee + MTs by the word? CCP would never pay you MTs by the word.

If you read anything that was put into the post Wilko you'd know that it isnt over-reacting. The fact that you cant see 1/2 a kilometer down the road isnt my problem. In case you dont understand that metaphor, Ill break it down for you.

The continued Trending in EVE Online (and CCP) is decidedly negative, and will continue its downward spiral.

I do believe however you are trolling, otherwise you would have actually READ the responses.
