'backend stuff improved'



call it a preparation-H patch.

Money at its root is a form of rationing. When the richest 85 people have as much wealth as the poorest 3.5 billion (50% of humanity) it is clear where the source of poverty is. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jan/20/trickle-down-economics-broken-promise-richest-85

And I may add that there was other stuff in the patch, but none of it you guys will ever see, because they are all internal changes.

[Falcon, maybe a silly suggestion, but in cases like this, a 'patch note' with a single line saying 'backend stuff improved' would help greatly, because even if it's a 'non patch' patch, where nothing gets changed that directly concerns players, having a note telling them nothing has changed for them would be very communicative ;)



It's anything but a silly suggestion but it comes down to CCP doing some sort of communication and from where I sit it looks like we're back pre-incarna and communication being in the same sentence with CCP equals to an oxymoron.

Take for example this thread, a question about CCP promising 10 year old vets a station of their own:
https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=284509
CCP responses to that, zero.zero and it was not the first time there was a polite inquiry to this fanfest promise with no response.

Another example is a two year old thread in the Macintosh section which hasn't seen a dev response in over a year
https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=1533341#post1533341
And if one of the posters is right CCP isn't even spending any time at fixing this 2 year problem simply since there is no-one put on the Mac client.

And I can go on but why bother, no one cares at CCP at the moment. Sad

10 year vet station, to do what in?
I'd rather they worked on content thanks.

And Macs suck, so who cares?

That's really strange!
On my screen it says "Responsibilities include:
Implement game features based on designs using our internal tools and Python"

I imagine you're looking at the bit that says strong programming ability required. I don't think the job is actually C++ related as that's not in the job description at all.
Plus it's WoD...

Patch tears are the best.

They're so sour tasting - you get that bitter-puckerface that helps you imagine how self-wrongteous the OP must be feeling.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.
