Babies are bad, BAD.


That is why more than 1 guy should be balancing the ships, not that Tallest isn't awesome :D


We actually have three people dedicated to it now, the other two are just working on other areas (titan tracking, anyone?).

i hope both are male or both female. Otherwise eve could lose the whole balancing team because of babies!

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

Perhaps CCP Tallest refers to something else too....

Congrats on the kiddos Tallest, hope we see them replace Sundwave someday! He's getting kinda scruffy and old anyway.

it's 9 months
3 for the mom
3 for the dad
3 months they can split however they like

but then you get more when you produce more than one baby at once, I don't know exactly how much more

now be nice and let Tallest enjoy the time with his super cute little dudesBig smile

Damnit Punkturis, you have to take on his mantle of the saviour of the Gallente people, then. Get into that source code, change a few values and be hailed as a hero.

"We will create the introduction thread if that is requested by the community. Also, we will have an ISD Seminar about the CCL team in the coming weeks in which you can ask your questions about the CCL team and provide some constructive feedback to us." - Countless pages of locked threads and numerous permabanned accounts later, change is coming.

To be fair if one perosn goes on leave for an extended peroid of time, important parts of the game should not be neglected becuase of it especially when it was a focus for the new expansion, that is poor corporate organization and planning. That said CCP is honestly the most interactive and engaging of the playerbase of any mmo publisher i have seen to date. You guys have a sense of humor that i love, and you seem to treat your people well from my point of view.

So congrast to Tallest and good luck with the double work load at home ;)

That is the drugs talking. Babies, which are ugly, mentally weak, smelly, blind and noisy; give off chemicals which hot wire us into liking and wanting to protect them.

Just be sure to distinguish between GM, who read, write, have some professional social skills and Devs, who do actual programming, image muckery (while using illegal substances i.e. camouflage paint), meshes and database administration. Although, a lot of it is playing with programs that make games, such as 3D Max. P

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

If you balance it so everything is highly biased towards the gallente, you'll be fine.
