Just got the latest Eve news letter, and the first article is naturally the meeting with CCP and the CSM.

Here's the text:

accord reached at ccp's special summit
reported by CCP Navigator | 2011.07.02 14:19:17 | Comments

CCP Zulu published a dev blog on Sunday, June 26 which talked about an upcoming summit with the CSM and CCP to "discuss the events of the past week, to help us define and address the real underlying concerns, and to assist us in defining and iterating on our virtual goods strategy." During the last two days the CSM have discussed these issues with CCP Zulu (Senior Producer for EVE Online), CCP Soundwave (Lead Game Designer, Flying in Space) and CCP Flying Scotsman (Lead Game Designer, Incarna). CCP and the CSM have produced statements below which reflect the main talking points of the summit along with a video featuring CCP Zulu and The Mittani, the current Chairman of the CSM.

The CSM departed Iceland today and many of them will be in transit for quite a few hours. We are confident that they will want to answer your questions and reply to your comments but this may not happen until they are back at home.



Statement on behalf of CCP from Arnar Hrafn Gylfason, Senior Producer for EVE Online

Following the series of events surrounding the launch of Incarna, CCP invited the Council of Stellar Management (CSM) to an extraordinary meeting in Reykjavik to discuss and address a variety of topics ranging from ship spinning to performance to virtual goods strategies. The discussions were very productive and both parties came to an understanding and agreement on key topics. That meeting has now ended and a firm resolution reached by both parties.

CCP acknowledges that the reaction following the leaked internal communication could have been handled better. Good communication and trust between CCP and the EVE community has always been a fundamental priority for CCP and will continue to be so.

It is CCP‘s plan that the Noble Exchange (NeX store) will be used for the sale of vanity items only. There are no plans, and have been no plans, as per previous communication and CSM meetings, to introduce the sale of game breaking items or enhancements in the NeX store.

The investment of money in EVE should not give you an unfair advantage over the investment of time. The CSM, under NDA, has been presented with CCP‘s plans for continued evolution of the business model and agrees that nothing they saw breaks this principle. CCP has committed to sharing their plans with the CSM on this front on an ongoing basis.

CCP acknowledges that communication surrounding the launch of the virtual goods store should have been better. To address that, we will write up dev blogs that explain the pricing strategy of the NeX store and the price tiering system. We will also communicate that we intend to put the focus on further fleshing out the lower price range and give visual examples of upcoming items.

The CSM raised concerns with performance running multiple clients after the Incarna launch where the minimum hardware spec will only support one client logged in when in a station environment. CCP will work on creating a minimum hardware spec that supports multiple clients, but wants it to be clear that the current minimum specification aims at single client with low settings.

The CSM helped CCP understand the emotional connection players had with „ship spinning". They vehemently demanded the return of the feature, which CCP committed to introduce in some form at a future date. Until that functionality is added back in, the option to load station environments will remain in the Settings menu.

We are very happy with the results of the meetings and appreciate the commitment to EVE the CSM members have shown by attending the meeting on short notice.

Senior Producer of EVE Online

The fact that CCP forced an incredibly flawed expansion down our throats, and then didn't anticipate that the player base would go nuts, speaks volumes about the future of Eve.

I bet it means "I haven't been paying attention the last few weeks and I also didn't see the date on the very thing I copy pasted, showing that I'm like 2 weeks behind with this massive intel leak which I just posted".

Apply to PL, they could use people with the intel gathering powers as fierce as yours in their spying department.

Nope, more like I posted the text when a link to it was sent to me via the then latest Eve Online newsletter.

Not my fault is CCP has released it before then. Razz
