This is not a flame.. pls do NOT use this thread TO flame. Just give your honest oppinion to help CCP direct their limited resources at the most important issues in the game.

1) Game play stability (ie... those pesky crash to desktops)

2) Game balance (ie... pirate drops, gallente vs amarr ships, market items, etc...)

3) Story development, and player involvement in the story

4) Production and marketing problems

5) Agent problems of ALL kinds (ie finding them and running buggy missions)

6) Any other ONE item you can think of.

Personally I say that game stability is the single most important thing CCP needs to focus on. They have a TON of incredible ideas, and great content, but ALL of this is worthless if the game is not worth playing due to crashing bugs that make us lose ships and gear and god only knows what else.

Again pls no flaming. This is designed to aid CCP in deciding where their income (the customers, you and I) is most concerned about with the game.

I do see your point, but it's likely that CCP have teams that work on different objectives. Having the content team fixing bugs isn't going to help, since that's not what they do...

Posted - 2003.08.03 22:29:00 - [3]

Yes but it will show them where they need help.. and maybe encourage them to hire that help.

Most definitely "1". Include in this all crashes *AND* things like the local chat bug, cap bug, modules sticking on bug, i.e. get things that ARE in the game and sometimes broken working.

Definitly Game Stability, all the content in the world or Balancing won't be worth crap, if you can't stay on, there are niggly little things all over that need addresing and I'm sure the bug reports are stacked a mile high, ( the mere fact that I must go to the fitting room and re online my modules every time I logg in is frustrating) Focus on Game stability is the Priority!

Number one for sure...

I've kept my cool and streched my patience, but this is getting ridiculous.
Seems that every patch brings the ratio of bug fix vs new bugs in favor of the later.

CCP, dont let EVE be like Neocron.. Another game that promised alot of potential, but hit the bottom of barrel with endless new bugs and attempts at game balance.

CTD MUST be fixed for the survival of EVE.

Posted - 2003.08.04 08:39:00 - [9]

1. Definately. It's stopping me even PLAY Eve. Grr!

Having worked Closely on a Major UO Freeshard, running it's own server software I add, I know how hard it is to avoid bugs whilst improving Balance or gameplay. Unfortunatly, it's nearly impossible to do. I hope CCP can sort out it's bugs, as i predict that eve could easily outstrip SWG and all the other space type MMORPG's, perhaps even others Like UO.

CCP : Keep at it
players: Keep playing, keep reporting the bugs! :)

Game play and Stability is very important, but also people are getting fed up with the lack of input to the game, the balace is all wrong and theres not enough stuff int he game to keep all but the most dedicated player intrested.
CCP NEEDS TO GET THIS SORTED. FAST!or they can expect as mass exodus of players, very, very shortly.
Amacor, I have Beta tested games, both online and in house, but not everyone has experienced beta testing games, and even less people have alot of patience to play such an unfinished game. CCP should have known as soon as they went retail minor glitches in the game would become major issues, after all we are paying for the priveledge to beta test this game now. and that is unacceptable. 3 months into the game and none of the important issues have gone away just altered or lessened, but with every patch comes a heap of new problems and theres a ton of old ones that remain.

The playing publics patience is wearing thin

Posted - 2003.08.04 13:34:00 - [11]

Alright.. good responses so far.. but we need them to keep piling in.. and hopefully we'll have enough responses to catch CCP's eye.

Maybe they'll even sticky this so that it will stay visible to all players.

Posted - 2003.08.04 13:58:00 - [12] fix list

1) CTD bug that was introduced with 1128.....this is clearly a server side issue and seems quite similar to the old node gone offline problem
2) Local channel filling up with players from ALL the systems I have travelled thru....which also causes nasty lag.

I will add more but these are the 2 that can cause weeks of work to be lost.

The CTD really needs fixing fast, before anything else. I've only had about 2 CTD's myself, but have seen loads of players dropped simultaneously out of the game over this weekend.

Tke map/autopilot still gives the occassional problem on a return journey.

The can contents not updating is a real pain if you're an indy driver. Also you still get errors when moving stuff from can to can, sometimes it takes a number of attempts to move the item, or sometime you get some weird number error.

Items stuck in an "on" state which wont turn off (eg afterburners).

The "local" bug is a serious problem and IMO needs immediate attention after fixing the CTD problem. The others I can live with.

Well I have latest drivers and my puter will sometimes ctd and other times just flat reboot and I did not have this problem before the last patch. I have checked the forums and all I seem to find is others with the same problems.

8 to 10 boots a day its a struggle just to stay online. Don't dare do anything dangerous 2 minutes of my ship there and me not could be a pod waiting to happen. I would hope that someone would either reverse what they screwed up or give us a positive answer to fix it. And its not just me my address friends I see green red green red all day long.

With This Said ..If the CTD cant be fixed no sense fixing anything else. The other bugs are of no consequence if you cant stay in the game long enough for them to be a bother.

Oh and I forgot to mention I have 3 puters in my computer room and 3 eve accounts all puters are different ...and new... and all ctd..

Since friday I have had (Er August 1st) crashes to desktop whenver I fire up my afterburners. Try spending 4 days unable to turn on MWD or AB's...

I CTD constantly, and on occasion have been blue screened. CCP has to stabilize first, before they do anything else. Don't spend time building in content (Which is admittedly missing) if everyone leaves because they can't use the game.

I'm to the point where the lagg, crashes, and instabilioty are keeping me from playing. They need to focus 100% of their effors on making the platform stable. After that it's all gravey.
