Dear CCP, this is a rant, so I'm sure some ISD minion is going to lock this thread as soon as he sees it, but no matter.

I've spent the better part of the last decade playing this game, from the little pubbie in provi to the raging FC who ended up on youtube for all the wrong reasons.

I have met some amazing people in this game along the way. Many of them I talk to on a daily basis even today. Most of them just like me have moved on to bigger and better things in life, partly because it was our time, but largely because you took a great game and turned it into what it is today.

I will not rant about the supercap changes and the total obliteration of endgame content that you have brought along over the past two years in hopes of driving away the bitter old vets and retaining the younger crowd. You have achieved the former quite well and have managed to fail miserably at the latter. However seeing a 4 day old char with 470 million skill points is frankly an insult to the people who have spent a decade training their characters to perfection.

I will spare you any more of my thoughts on you being a cheap sellout.

So long to all the friends and enemies who I have met along the way, it has been an honor.

Enormous gratitude and respect to the original developers of eve and people who have made it one of the greatest games out there.
To the current crew, I hope you learn from your mistakes and make better decisions in the future.

So long,

o7

Bla bla bla... However seeing a 4 day old char with 470 million skill points is frankly an insult to the people who have spent a decade training their characters to perfection.

More bla bla bla...

I feel it's a greater insult to keep "the people who have spent a decade training their characters to perfection" and are bored to death instead of rejuvenating the player base with a younger crowd.

And you should thank "the people who have spent a decade training their characters to perfection" because this IronBank character belongs to a bitter vet who pilled up Trillions of ISK for this day to come... It's not CCP who ruined this for you, is the vanity of "the people who have spent a decade training their characters to perfection".

IJS...

Just so you know... there is no endgame content....its a sandbox. Its not meant to have an endgame...because to have an endgame you must have an end...to the game. And there is no end...cause its a sandbox.

Supercaps and caps were getting ridiculous. Sov warfare turned into who could blob the biggest cap fleet... boring.

Injectors actually remove tons of SP from the game. What isnt removed is just redistributed. Its not a big deal.
