Working as intended. Released half finished to be abandoned for years just like any CCP feature.

At least grinding L4's you have the remote chance for PVP interactions.

In the station? Not so much.

We don't need a PCU full of Barbieworld fanatics. That's my 2 ISK.

I hear you.

However, the cancer is already here and can't be cured, so why not give the bears something to shut them up even for a short while?

Because it will hurt CCP's bottom line in the end. Those people would be taking up connection sockets that actual players could be connecting to - and enriching Eve.

I do not see any benefit coming from this development that would not be far outstripped by developing Flying In Space content instead.

Unless CCP can come up with some very compelling reasons for us to interact in stations...

I agree. The problem with Incarna was its complete and utter uselessness. Giving us avatars but no way to interact. Ha, ha! And starting with the most depressing looking CQ on top of it.

Anyway, common rooms should not be that hard to implement. Though I wonder how they will look like in Jita. Perhaps a queue!?
And corp/alliance separees. Perhaps an offical-looking meeting room where the managers can be important and show off their NEX clothes along with live feed to the regular corp-grunts´ CQ.

More socializing certainly isn´t wrong in a MMO.

WiS is there, so why not finish it by giving it a purpose (a possibility to meet/show off your avatar)? That does not mean that the spaceship aspect becomes irrelevant or that CCP should not concentrate on in spaceships.

Let's just assume there are a finite number of sockets available for connection to Eve.

Now let's assume that a bunch of people glut those sockets for this worthless content that adds nothing to actual gameplay.

Then let's assume that other people who actually want to play Eve can't connect due to the sockets being glutted by Barbieworlders.

Finally, let's ask those players' opinions of this scenario.

We want the majority of our PCU to be active pilots in space, not cybersexing isolationists completely divorced from the real game content.

I wonder, how does PLEX give you anything that isn't achievable through gameplay, again?

Wheres the BPO for a monocle drop?

Just what CCP needs: Bandwidth being taken up by players who aren't even playing the game.

In larger numbers than what already happens.

The number of players online means nothing if we can't shoot most of them and they aren't buying spaceships.

Confirming that the Nobel exchange is dead. I cannot trade any of my Nobel prizes for anything in eve. The Noble Exchange on the other hand, is probably not doing terribly for something that literally gets no work these days.

Ah, the "No, you!" defense.

This works well at juvenile levels of the qq mocking game.

I think it runs out of oompf around age 4 though. Maybe 5 for late-bloomers.

Because it will hurt CCP's bottom line in the end. Those people would be taking up connection sockets that actual players could be connecting to - and enriching Eve.


But if CCP's aim for EVE is to build the ultimate s-f sim, then people doing that "useless" (in your eyes) content will be "enriching EVE."

And that's their stated ultimate aim, as shown even in the video that Hilmar linked in his "apology" letter.

So yes, they've sensibly re-trenched and are concentrating on FiS, but that's not going to last forever, and they'll be revisiting the avatar-based content a year or two down the line.

So you must be in the wrong game.

My sense is that even "hardcore" players would enjoy WiS content - so long as it's multiplayer and has a point. IIRC even Mittani was looking forward to it being good, and a needed new element for the game. The fiasco about Incarna partly arose because it was neither.

People doing whatever doesn't destroy eve. What does destroy eve are those people who attempt to strong-arm CCP into fundamentally changing the game from its ruthless, cutthroat roots.

I'm willing to bet that if players can't connect to the available sockets due to cybersexing in stations (CiS) content, that the subs would probably take a pretty serious hit.

Tell yourself what you like, though.

My bad, I didn't realize we were talking about FiS (******* in Stations) that would probably hurt eve to a point.

I doubt CCP are unaware of the problems improving the game might bring - and yet strangely, they still hew to the idea of the "ultimate s-f sim".

They may say so.

I don't think CCP had sexual deviants in mind when they designed EVE.
