Fair enough. Very Happy

If I could tell my former 19 year old self anything, it would be to not take everything so seriously, there are few things that truly matter, and none of them are video games. While I do invest myself emotionally here to a degree, I know that at the end of the night, it is just a game.

I was just curious whether the OP was one of the numerous people posting on General Discussion these days that seems to have distinct lack of perspective or sense of reality, i.e. they take the game way too seriously, as if their lives will be irrecoverably altered by CCPs design decisions.

OP has yet to show which side of the fence they are on either way.

Just because you think video games don't "truly matter" doesn't mean that it is so.

For somebody they might "truly matter" and they might think the things you think "truly matter" don't matter at all.

Make sense?

I have no doubt that the OP reflects the sentiments of a lot of CCP employees. It's easier to be resentful and lazy than it is to be competent, productive and ethical. Just look at the EVE Vegas 'presentations.'

OR you can accept that it's just a game and decide if that game is worth $15.00 (+/-) a month. If it is, then make lemonade with the lemons. If it isn't, don't resub and find something new to play. Something else will come along, and you shouldn't pay for something you're not satisfied with.

It's not a flame, that's the power of being a consumer. Wink

re: 'just a game' FFS, at the end of the day, life is just a game. We've each got a finite supply of waking hours to play with. If any company pulls the bait-and-switch that CCP has and causes many of their customers to have squandered hundreds or thousands of those waking hours, then of course their customers will complain.

Well, the only things that truly matter in life are health, love, friendship and filling your time doing something you love (or at the very least, something you don't mind too much that brings you money Very Happy ).

But other than that, people are passionate about all sorts of hobbies. Who are you to decry what strikes someone else's fancy?

For my part, I'm into games not for competition, but for immersion's sake. I want to be transported to somewhere that's not here, not now, to somewhere more interesting and more marvellous than even this interesting and marvellous reality we live in.

A virtual world; a "sandbox".

Sandbox games like EVE are rare; successful sandbox games like EVE even rarer. I think a lot of the passion that keeps this issue alive is the fear that EVE will lose that rare quality and become more of a bog-standard affair.

For many, that fear must have been awakened when reading the leaked Newsletter, and the leaked Hilmar email. This was not a company that seemed dedicated to preserving and making better this rare type of game, but rather a company that was much more focusssed on monetizing the game simply to fund their further adventures.

Which is perfectly within their right. But I think it's what caused some non-negligible number of players (and "pillars of the community" at that) to suddenly lose interest in the game.

Time will tell whether EVE took a big hit or not; it's unlikely to "die", but it may simply gradually, insensibly, change into another, more mundane, more commonplace type of game - like the kind we see littering the MMORPG landscape today.

Oh I don't disagree with you in that regard... I just have a rather unique outlook as a philosopher and historian.
I guess the better question is left unanswered as I do not have the heart to ask it.

To each his or her own. Watching people squabble over such things is interesting at least, for the time being.

I'm in one of those phases at the moment where the forums are more fun than the game. Happens every now and then with EVE, I find Very Happy

Heh, I think the only time that was true for me was shortly after Dominion came out when there was all the uproar over lagfest, etc.

I did have a question for you though, why look behind the curtain if you want so hard to believe in the Great Oz?
I do love a good escape myself, and I can do so in EVE when I want to, but I have always found that single player games, books, movies, or etc. are usually more... conducive to such things.
