"Here watch as we show off all of this prototype stuff for the DUST-EVE connection like last year and the year before but never gets implemented"

Seriously though . . . uhh . . . **** . . . I'm just a GD troll I cant come up with any serious thought.

CCP reps will use words such as: awesome, new, exciting etc, folk in the venue will clap and cheer, then come to the forums to complain about how bad CCPs awesome, new and exciting ideas really are.

CCP will also talk about DUST 514 in the present tense, when it should be spoken about in the past tense if the numbers of folk playing the game are anything to go by.

This is not a signature.

My only issue with this is when eve started it had around 4k player a day. And people kept saying it was going to die. I personally have a bit more faith in ccp, but they do screw up at times.

OMG Comet Mining idea!!! Comet Mining!

CCP will announce Valkaryies launch date, not beta. (one can dream)

We will get more info on the type of play Valk will have

We will see new Dust stuff.

We will get a lack luster presentation of the next expantion.

Troll:

CCP will announce they have sold Valk to facebook.

CCP will announce that they are closing eve and focusing 100% on Dust.

OMG Comet Mining idea!!! Comet Mining!

CCP will announce player build jumpgates which will rely heavily on POCOS coding and null sec refining buff. Gates can be built in known null sec space and will land you in a random unexplored system. A return gate can be built in the new system and be linked back to original gate. Also new gates can be built in new system that will jump you to either a new uneplored system or back to known null sec.

1) Scrapping dust entirely and reintegrating it as part of the base EVE client, so that we can justofy the integration we should have had all along

2) Rebalance of SOV and force projection, so that the little guy can not only take live in hostile SOV, but the owner has to physically be present to make sure their towers arent getting attacked

3) Old Armageddon being given back, and a new 4th hull being given the bastard bonuses that the current geddon has




1) CCP finally admits EVE is not profitable, and will be shifting focus to themepark F2P, with levels, level caps, bigger is universally better, and a bonus to players switching from WoW

2) CCP admits they never cared in the first place and dont want EVE to ever be anything truly innovative or amazing

3) CCP is releasing more deployables, calling them "an innovation in gameplay dynamics"

CCP will announce it's delivering a DoTa2 type MOBA

It will allow you to have 250 vs 5 games and cite "the sandbox makes this fun"

Puzzled looks abound

There are good ships,

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

But the best ships are Spaceships

1) https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=229521 will be not announced and may be trolled by seagull.

2) new :
- ship skin (pedobear titan anyone?), skin are very important but dont dream for you corp logo we dont care
- new mobile struct (mobile counter surveillance, mobile counter cyno inhib, mobile counter 'xxx', x=insert what you like here).

3) POS revamp, still being on study, no one can read the original code...so we still fxcked

4) SOV mechanic cant be reworked, the original coder have prob left the boat in the past month...we still fxcked

5) nothing will be announced for AFK cloaky, AFK station. afk still +1 for stats....yes we like fxck you

6) Introducing CCP Mitrens, CCP Chaddoo and CCP Drunken, massive improvement will follow (+1%,-2%, set range to 30 and not 32)

dont know if must continue....

summary : nothing new, nothing cool.. "shutup and give us your money".

there's so many thing to fix in eve.... and they fix forum ! GJ! but ok i like it !

CCP Fozzie : AFK cloaking, however, is an entirely social form of power

Rainbow drooling glittery CGI'd prettiness will be showcased as 'upcoming features', with an open ended delivery date.

Something something DUST/EVE interaction something something, applause, something open ended delivery date.

Something something something, more applause, something something another open ended delivery date.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

If CCP is smart, DUST announced for PC and integrated into the Eve client. If CCP has the same ridiculous business sense it has shown up until now, DUST will be announced for PS4.

Predictions:

  • A long, dry presentation about industry changes will be made. I won't understand it.
  • CCP will, for the 7th consecutive year, acknowledge POS's need to be fixed. ...soon™
  • We will see mention of Stargate construction, comet mining, and maybe T3 Battleships. We'll see a prototype of a ship skinning system. The original T'Amber will get no credit.
  • A major Sov overhaul will be announced.
  • New wormhole space will be announced.


Trolls:

  • WoD will replace captains quarters in stations (which I would personally love...)
  • A total EvE TQ server reset will be announced. Everybody starts back at 0.
  • There will be a 10 year vet presentation for characters over 10 years old only. It will be a circle jerk.
  • A PC release of DUST 514 will be announced. Nobody will notice.
  • Pets for captains quarters. Also: Hats.

Signatures should be used responsibly...

Once the audience are packed into the main hall, the lights will suddenly go out. The few nervous murmurs from the crowd will be silenced as the big screen lights-up with the CCP logo.

The screen then shows a character, a Caldari female, standing in her captain's quarters. She makes her way towards the door and it opens with a clunk. A gust of air caused by the pressure difference makes her hair blow around a little as she begins to walk down the new corridor before her.

Looking to her left she spots an open door and walks through to find 3 NPCs busying themselves with various complicated-looking devices. She walks up to the "official-looking" NPC wearing a Caldari military-style uniform and engages conversation. The audience cheers as they hear the voice of the NPC (performed by none-other than CCP Guard), along with the usual text dialogue.

The NPC explains that they're testing a new way to fly ships, which will cut-down on the cost of constantly making new clones for capsuleers. It is done through a VR system that allows you to remote-control disposable ships intended for battles where death comes quickly, and often. After accepting the mission given by the NPC, the character turns to sit down in a chair, the view changes from third-person to first, and a pair of VR goggles fall into view which the character puts on.

A choice menu comes up on the big screen:
- ENTER VALKYRIE
- ENTER EVE VR

At this point, half of the audience have wet themselves from excitement and too much beer, the hall is becoming slippery to stand in and the cheers are deafening.

It is announced that Valkyrie will be a standalone game available for PC and PS4, and those who have EVE installed will be able to directly access Valkyrie from within the game. Accessing Valkyrie from within EVE will allow the EVE character to gain standings, ISK and kills from Valkyrie.

The best thing, however, is that you can use this system to fly through EVE itself, in any ship you own.

The character then puts down the goggles and leaves the chair, the view changes to third person again as she exits the door and turns left. As she makes her way down the corridor, the faint hum of music can be heard in the distance, growing louder as she gets closer to a door ahead of her. Just as she reaches for the door controls, she looks to her right just as another character, Minmatar in appearance, lunges at her with a knife. The screen goes black.

The audience are now swimming in a mixture of urine and beer, unable to clap, they shout and cry tears of joy. Then someone opens the door to the main hall and everyone gets washed outside.

TL;DR - My wet dream.

Actually it is, if you consider the meta too.

But is it meta 1, meta 2, meta 3, or meta 4?
