EA enabled that game. Without a lot of cash up front, it wouldn't have been anywhere near as big as it was.

With that said, their recent expansion did a very successful job of multiplying the number of "I'm unsubbing RAGEQUIT!" topics. TL;DR version they made a lot of changes which made a lot of the game's most social players mad, and "cash grab" rightly comes up quite a bit.

The first change they would make in eve would be to remove the full loot pvp.

Please excuse any grammatical errors and sorry for any misspellings. English is not my native language. I'm from brazil.

Nothing is forever. I also play Atlantica Online. The company (NDOORS) sold it to Nexon and now its being sold to VALOFE.

Truthfully, I can't see any company doing justice to this title.

EA would gut it and probably make the current Alpha Clones looks like gods (they ******* removed actions bars in F2P SWTOR, ffs)

RSI would slowly push this game into Star Citizen, which wouldn't be bad, but I HIGHLY doubt it would keep the same PVP ruleset

Trion Worlds would cash shop the hell out of it

NCSoft would give us ridiculous loli crap

Perfect World would also cash shop the hell out of it

Ubisoft would...well...uPlay DRM this and we wouldn't be able to log in half the time because 'the uPlay servers are experience connectivity issues'

ZeniMax would switch to a pay per DLC (aka expansion) model unless you stayed sub; and would subsequently change PLEX from being transferable to 'bind of purchase'.

Jesus...I've run out of game companies. Most of the ones that have been listed as well are owned by one of the above. So the buck (and decisions) would stop with them.

I dunno, maybe Amazon? They were looking to get into video games. Well, here's one that's setup and ready to go.

I really can't see Microsoft's game studio (343 I think it is or do they have others?) or Sony would buy up. Sony's had financial troubles too and is reportedly only making money because of the PS4. And Microsoft wouldn't want to support the PC venue since that won't push Xbox One sales.

Facebook might, but they seem more focused on the hardware that interacts with the games over the actual games themselves.

I am of course joking, but that is slightly similar thinking to me.
Interesting tidbit for you.

In the U.S., you are more likely to die from being hit by an asteroid than die from a terrorist attack. By a large percentage.

Just one of those little things we students of statistics find interesting.

That would be me, and I'll say it again: EA don't invest in or make games, they only do nutritionless candy.

I just want my non-"darkandgritty" ship skins, don't care who buys EVE as long as they put in the bright colors already. Lol

But, god damn, is it not the best tasting (if you think of the graphics as the taste not the content; that would be the nutrition) candy :P

Careful, if Daum Games gets ahold of it...those skins will be ~$30 a piece and only one skin per ship (meaning no more skin packs)

Its an MMO and they get sold eventually. Get over it and get used to it. I wouldn't mind another company owning this game, maybe they will put more content into it other than allowing trolling and griefing by aholes. Oh and I got no problem with the bounties that will be put on this character now that I posted that, its my alt and I never use her. Have at it B---hs! I hope this game is sold to EA or Blizz and gutted into a real game.

Hopefully they won't screw up my little niche, but if they do then I'll have to find another game where three, home-built rather high end gaming computers (Well, three years ago) can find a place to waste time in a creative sort of way.

The first rule of corporate philosophy is "Maximum Profit, No Matter The Cost" so if they can realize a percentage point or two more profit by attracting the airhead, instant gratification bunch rather than the cunning, scheming, feral and bats**it crazy players who spend time and effort creating ever more innovative ways to blow stuff up (the current crew), well, then that's not just the way the world works but also, if you stop to think about it, the way Eve works.

..bury EvE.


Once I read this line from some chat/blog or whatever, that went like this: there are personalities/groups that
have been trying to kill EvE for some time now. I thought at that time it referred to a certain null group, because
of the other things the text was talking about. But now, having read much more eve related stuff, I guess there
is truth to what that line said.

I was in an alpha char last week, chatting up some new players and this guy suddenly starts spouting about
'playing eve (for the time being) while waiting for Star Citizen'. He wasn't really badmouthing eve but the bittervets
in the npc corp suddenly _erupted_ at the comments of the guy about SC (quotable: how it was a game
designed for computers of teh future! The future he says!)

O'course I egged him on, kept the flames high and much entertainment was had in an otherwise boring night.

I thought then, was this guy actually ADVERTISING SC on EvE? With an alpha account? You know the way
he talked and how he claimed he was '..from the industry.'.. I was thinking he worked on SC itself, LOL.

So you wanna bury eve online? Get in line, people have been trying for the past X years..

edit: huh, reading some of the posts here.. must be part of that personalities/groups mentioned..

We aren't. Disney outsource gaming licenses to EA.

Oh I'll get over it and get used to it just fine, by moving on to something else. This is as much a real game as any other, and you wanting to turn it into a carebear's themepark dream is entirely your problem. If this game, as is, is too hard for you, then play something else.

The news said the investors are thinking of selling the company CCP which includes Eve, Valkyrie, Gunjack and Project Nova. If someone wants to buy CCP, he is probably paying his attention on the intellectual property of VR, not the old game Eve.
