Yes, CCP are now using Eventbrite to manage ticket sales.

Makes sense, really. Outsource the management of that kind of thing to another party, for whom it's a core competency, rather than something they threw together themselves.

Woo! CSM XI!

CCP IS using, IS using. CCP is singular. It is ONE corporation. CCP "are" using is incorrect usage.
The people at CCP "are" - is correct.

Long live subject/verb agreement. Down with modern revisionists! Literacy is elegance!

CCP has published a Dev blog on it in which is stated why they moved to Eventbrite for ticket sale.

Surely it can be either since in full their name is pluralised?

Oh and ugh, does this mean I now need to sign up with eventbrite, thereby stick my email address into another third party website to be bombarded with mails telling me about rubbish all the time? What was wrong with the old system? Seemed to work well enough up until now.

Its one of the few places my genetics work great for and lead to me happily carousing a city drunk and in less clothing than a Katey Perry photo shoot.

If you read along stressing the capitalized words you will discover to your amazement they are far from random.
Unlike yours, I might add. Double quotation marks don't exist, unless you're from England or some similar backward land. We call these --- >' apostrophes in civilized nations. " <---- these we call quotation marks.

I can give you some details about this past year if you would like... which reminds me i need to send feedback to the fan fest team, wife was a tad miffed. but meh.

SOE ticket gives your wife/so/friend/whatever a tour on Friday, they did the peninsula near the air port this year. You do not get Thursday access. You do however get all day Saturday access and access to the party at the top of the world.

What other info would you like?

collective noun - a "pride" of lions; a "flock" of birds.. If there was one for corporations - a "bevy" of CCPs...no, then it would be a bevy of "corporations." There's still only one CCP. There are many corporations. There's only one Big Bird, but there's lots and lots of birds. So no. Collective noun is no excuse for this habitual misuse which has only recently begun, I might add. There are some of us who see this as a plague that's suddenly descended upon us from who knows where? That's why we notice it so readily.

I think it's English teachers (the group) too lazy or undisciplined who find it easier than to hammer home to the poor student what the differences are in subject/verb agreement. Then again, and this should give folks cause for pause, it may be these English teachers became certified despite having a flimsy handle on their own language. That wouldn't surprise me a bit.

"If you can't say what you mean, how can you mean what you say." This snake will bite you one day,
so I make a fuss about it now and again. It's 'cause we loves yah.
