Peoples class, intellect or place of origin should be a factor, in the real world your feedback makes a difference, but at the moment your voices are just echoes, maybe the Mittani was right for CSM?
Did CSM vote him off or give him a warning? The voting system is a game mechanic and should be implemented into the bigger picture.

Your confusion seems to stem from your belief that the CSM tells CCP what to do, and that this should be carried over to the population at large directly by means of a voting system. This is not the case.

The CSM collects information on what the EVE community would like to see happen, if technically possible, and presents that information.
CCP then lets them know if it is a possiblilty, and if it conflicts with other design goals that they have.


CCP presents idea's that they would like to impliment and gets direct (and most importantly, informed) feed back on those concepts from a players point of view... in a controlled environment where an NDA can be in effect to protect thier business interests.
The CSM supplies that feed back in a confidentail setting.

None of the above would be possible (in any form of constructive way) in a community wide voting situation, and would put CCP at a severe disadvantage in the gaming industry.

This game is CCP's baby, and I think they do already go the extra mile to try and include players in the development process.

Look around at Blizzard and Bioware...they don't do this at all.

That’s a great point and I voted at the last CSM but I must have failed to check the box where it allows me too receive their newsletter with recent communications and results.
I should correct that asap

Or check the appropriate section of the forums.

Much of what the CSM is asked to look at can not be openly shared with the EVE community. That which can be shared in advance often has to be done in very general terms.

CCP is a business, not a democracy. Like any good business they employ mechanisms to gauge what their customer like/dislike/would like, and this is becoming more effective as time goes by... but any business in a competetive industry (espcially the game industry) can NOT reveal too much before release.

If they did, we would soon not have EVE around to enjoy.

As a business owner I understand your point and I’m sure Mcdonalds would agree with you too, its all about customer care and welfare, CCP are A-ok in my book, that’s why I subscribe Big smile but alas not every one agrees

I was surprised that the Lego rifter only just scraped the 10k votes required maybe it would be another cash cow for CCP to get their games out to a wider audience but it seems that nobody knows how to vote!, my vote counted, I’m guessing the large customer basis of CCP wants to remain sedentary.

For the Blues CCP keep on making game mechanics and decide the future of the game with out a ballot box, all changes to Eve can be decided with out consulting Eve clients.
CCP can do what they like.

For the Reds: To further CSM, Eve clients help write the rules and how the game mechanics work with a ballot box, so that any changes from CCP need the correct number of votes from clients, so that every body gets a say just like an Eve corporation or Alliance this would help the game evolve completely into a sandbox situation where anything can change maybe even who gets to be a Dev or Gm.

... because voting on game design will ensure that no-one is ever disgruntled again. Just like in real democracies. And that's why so many successful companies are run that way.

Most brilliant games I can think of have had no player influence whatsoever. By pleasing everybody you take away the meaning of a game tbh

I vote that people with years of experience creating enjoyable and challenging video games should design my video games.

Edit: Thought you said companies.

You've never spent any time in Valve obviously.


Valve is completely horizontal. No job descriptions and no bosses.

As long as anyone who goes BLUE understands that I'll be hunting them, it's fine by me.
Because we all know it all comes down to either Red or Blue.

Wait.... it's not an RvB thread. Meh, shoot em all!
