CCP checks and balances

To make sure CCP does a wonderful job at expanding or patching Eve Online in the future. It would be a good thing to make it mandatory for Eve Devs to actually play Eve 5 - 10 hours a week. This would include everyone that touches Eve, even if thats just posting stupid stuff on the forums. When I say play Eve 5 - 10 hours a week, that would mean they would have to UNDOCK and actually play the game, instead of sitting idle in a station.

This would help CCP in the long run. They would see what is wrong with the game and not implement great ideas for new players that only hinder vets game play, ie. Tool Tips.

They already play the game in their own free time...

I'd imagine some dev flying a ship and thinking "I made this"

To represent playerbase activities they'd have to spend 80% of that time levelling up their mission running raven in empire.

But OK.

Tool tips are mildly annoying but hardly hindering my play.

Sure, they could even form a corp (much of how people play EVE) and they can call that corp... oh I don't know, Band of Brothers?

oh wait... Pirate

I'm in it for the money

So... make playing Eve literally a job? And I thought CTAs were unfun. Blink

In light of recent events I think it be a requirement that all management do this.

Especially since the main devs that actually work on things tend to play in their free time anyway :D

assuming they don't already do this, nothing would change. Seriously.

No matter what the devs do they will always have some person who is angry or upset at what they do (gotta love human nature). And we will always have people claiming that the devs have no idea what they are doing.

That is all assuming the devs don't play the game enough, which I highly doubt.

also, I have not encountered any issues with tooltips. For the most part I barely notice their existence.
