Albeit slowly.... I'm getting there. I got drunk, laid & took a 3 hr bath. Whaddayouknow? I'm feeling better.

I don't really care about my SP amount. Or, I didn't care before. It's more about the challenges both in-game and out that one has to overcome to achieve every small goal while you accumulate SP that's going to be missing. Those small victories are what drove my retention and now I'll need to find a new hook... quickly.

My biggest problem is that there isn't another game I want to play. I love EVE. Even if we're now playing EVE's slightly less-attractive, overweight cousin Bernice.


BERNICE ONLINE: You know you'd hit it.


BERNICE ONLINE: Drink until she's pretty enough to take home.


Maybe some new tagline options there for CCP. HTFU is out.

The bottom line is that I will be heartbroken this was allowed to occur for a while. It fundamentally is not EVE... but if BERNICE is going to have PTP (I have to call it 'pay to progress' or else the semantics warriors will attack) I only have 2 choices: quit or learn to love PTP.

I don't really wanna quit. I unsubbed on principle. There's nothing else you can do. Realistically, there's a lot going on in-game I DO like. I'm excited about citadels (though I think they should have some sort of automated defenses - what year is this) as I suggested player-built hub cities years ago. I like the new camera options. (I think you should be able to look left & right while flying in first person though) as I suggested that years ago too. SP trading sucks but there's a lot happening that's good and on many fronts I DO like the direction the game is heading.

If I stay, I'm not going to ride in the slow lane while everyone else passes me by either. So I'll have to learn to love ridin' dirty.

It's just such ********. I shouldn't even be in this position.

Hell, I might become one of the best NEX customers CCP has. In fact, my first new suggestion RE: BERNICE ONLINE will be if you buy x skins (100? some ridiculously high number) you should get an account-bound ship skin that looks like a spinning ball of light. **** yeah! Look at me! I bought so many skins I don't even fly a ship anymore. I fly a ******* ball of light! Thanks BERNICE!


"The only way to achieve the impossible is to believe it is possible."
-- Alice in Wonderland



I'm goin fix myself a stiff drink. I'ma need it.


Hey BERNICE, wanna get out of here? I have money....

This sounds like the opinion of a mature, emotionally stable individual with sound, nuanced opinions worthy of consideration.

Do you believe that there is a hell and CCP will burn in it?

You do not have to buy the injectors. Try to start playing Eve now and compare your toon to someone else's toon from 2004.

Capsuleers used to link their sp amount, and time trained from the character sheet and feel proud, not so more now imoRoll

Eve online is :

A) mining simulator B) glorified chatroom C) spreadsheets online

D) CCP Games Pay to Win at skill leveling, with instant gratification

It would be an option, you can leave it if you like :-)

My plan is still:

  1. Vote for Xenuria
  2. Stop paying CCP
  3. Burn through my ISK
  4. ??? probably quit for an indefinite time.

CCP - Building ant hills and magnifying glasses for fat kids

Not even once

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

I cannot remember for the life of me who I voted for last time, apart from Mike and Steve Ronkuen (?)

But I would like to know where any of the CSM from last year who are standing again, stood on the cash for skills - err, thingy.

Thank you.

I'd love to see some CCP Quant stats at the end of Feb showing how both ISK and SP distribution has shifted in response to skill trading.

I love the change - thanks CCP.

And a dozen younger players will be very happy to buy it from you.

Yes my comments appear apocalypto. I love/hate this game. Well - disgust/disappointed rather.

And I bet CCP forgot about all that thousands of aurm that were just laying around when you gave it out like candy. Now we have an Iron bank character with 100% five level skills and people on twitch handing out loads of skill extractors as raffle rewards.

I am also starting to have those conversations with people about how about you just buy some injectors so you can fly x.

I now have to compete with those people who are willing to drop big amounts of cash in a game because all you have to do now is buy a bunch of plex to turn it into sp.

I could go on. You broke the game the damage is done and now the game is in a very unhealthy place.

You didn't listen to anybody, and as usual you just did whatever the hell YOU wanted to do. I hope you enjoy your quick cash.

I guess we will just have to wait and see how this goes.

Im very disapointed in you CCP.
