Dear ccp,

I've been a loyal customer of your services for many a year.
Now I feel, I can't think of a better word, violated by your insanity.

Please remove the blue aurum counter from my gui. Also stop being ****s
and polish your game. Blizzard is your mentor.

Blizzard is business savvy, and Blizzard knows how to make money. Lots and lots of money.

The same cannot be said for CCP.

Awesome, awesome post nunkhead. Blizzard has been in business nearly 20 years now and with how many successful titles under their belt?

Yes, CCP could learn a few things from them. If CCP isn't already sitting down at a table with Blizzard begging for their recipe for success then EVE and CCP are doomed.

Failing that CCP could always talk to Bungie. Look how well that worked. Halo a success. Myth II sold for ransom. Which will EVE be like?

And not being Buisness savy, knowing how to make a good MMO (and no the current CCP did not make EvE, most of the originals devs are gone or shuffled to nowhere impactful *tomb*) is better? They also in the process of degrading a good MMO to make it more appealing to stupid people, and usually making more money but they're pretty bad at both ;/

Tbh Bungie struggled to recover after Marathon 2. Halo was great for its time but Marathon and Marathon 2 is still what really made them what they are. And holy **** you can download it to your Xbox. ♥

I know there will be many people who will disagree with me on this but Blizzard have actually managed to get things right on the work ethic side of things, no I don't agree they're particularly business savvy because they actually think they need DRM to sell games.

The reason they sell their games at all is because they take their time on games and treat them like an art form as opposed to the opposite end of the scale like Rockstar who follow stringent deadlines and are probably the most uptight *******s in the whole of the games industry and it tells in everything they do.

It's just a shame that Blizzard are money hungry and will go around banning people for using game trainers offline or feel the need to make people stay connected to the internet for singleplayer.

Its not even that. Its that they dilute the quality of their games by making them easier to appeal to a "wider" audience and make more money. Whats worse is they think by doing it gradually over many years that people wont notice. When Cataclysms was released me and 500 of my closest wow friends left the game because it got to the point where it wasn't playable. I'm sure we weren't the only ones.

Nope, because they fail at doing so. They tried, sure, but the eve community just doesn't seem to buy it. Blizzard on the other hand... they release this winged guardian lion pet thing, and at the release date it raises some 13million dollar. How much did CCP make with their monocle's? And how much subs have they lost because of it? They can learn something from blizzard, I suppose.

I like how, in this forum, it's the norm to label a user as a CCP employee alt if they oppose the constant whining. That is what you're implying, right? That I work for CCP or something? I won't deny that there are definitely some large portions of the game that require fixing and/or tweaking, but the amount of whining that you see on this forum is simply baffling. I see threads like this one and it's no wonder that CCP doesn't listen to the majority of users who post here. If the majority spouts nothing but impulsive requests along with caustic and nonconstructive remarks, why should anyone listen to them?

Dear CCP

The lack of high quality boots in the Nex store is insufferable

While the bleeding heart liberal majority may have prevailed in providing the peons free boots ..... enough is enough

I shudder to think what will happen if these "eve is real" free gifts continue ... pod pilot tradesmen trying to use the front entrance because they can afford "locksteps" will be next ....

I demand swift and decisive action
