You blindly defend CCP
If you blindly defend CCP then you are a fanboi

You are a fanboi



I am very humored by this, do you have something similar for people ******ed enough not to keep backups perhaps? Asshats playing internet spaceships included.

Oh, and what about those that cry their lungs out for the sake of the 'whine'?



*sigh*

Again this logic is just dumb, as we've gone over and over in this thread. You can't hold people responsible for not knowing how to fix the boot.ini issue or having a back-up.

First of all, it doesn't matter. The files downloaded by CCP should never ever delete sensitive OS files. When they do CCP is responsible plain and simple.

Just as it doesn't matter if I know how to fix my car, if a mechanic installs the wrong part (even if it would have taken me 5 minutes to do myself had I known how to do it) and that part explodes my engine, its the mechanics fault not mine.

Was it actually CCP's fault? For all you know it could have been a really obscure piece of Windows code that when called tries to do something with boot.ini.

irrelivent, thats what there QA dept is for.

And they missed one of the biggest bugs in gaming history, I worked for EA for 2 years testing games and I saw some crazy ****, but this ranks up as the worst ive seen

Yes it was without any doubt CCP´s fault. And a very noobish one at that.

First they named files in their program directory EXACTLY like critical system files. A big NO NO in programming. Normally you learn that rather early on, like first semester. There was no need to call an eve file boot.ini in the first place.

Then they allowed a simple and stupid typo to get through QA. They tried to delete their own boot.ini (which should not have existed in the first place) with the installer and instead deleted the one windows uses to boot up.

Incompetence on its highest level. Besides that, the error in the installer was recognized by a player on SISI before patchday and reported on the forum. CCP managed to ignore that warning too.

Good point! I can't hold people responsible for being complete asshats or plain stupid. But lets swing the argument in a different direction then: If you have no intent of knowing anything, then you have no right to complain about it either.

I think that's fair logic as anything else would assume you can't wipe your ass clean on your own.

Of course CCP are responsible for it, I know it, you know it, and I am pretty sure that they know it too. But why do you and the rest have this need to keep pushing it? Because its easier to thrive on negative criticism?

CCP might be responsable for deleting BOOT.INI, but getting ripped off for a 30 sec fix for installing EVE on business computers is all them...

Don't be stupid, it costs you money.


I'm waiting to see how many people had to call tech support within the company they work for (after hosing their work laptop), and then get fired for installing a game on their work laptop... Rolling Eyes

Then we'll have people coming here demanding that CCP also owes them jobs or permanent consistent income as well ;P

I had to completly reformat my HD

My boot.ini didn't get deleted, but over written, causing it to crash as soon as it logged onto my desktop, over and over and over. I tried fixing it, only to have windows tell me that it was currupt. I do demand comp for wasting 12+ hours reinstalling EVERYTHING.

Thanks for wasting my weekend..........

I agree
some sort of compensation to at least say they care that they costed some people money for their screw up would be nice
That's what a responsible company would do anyway.
