This new experience your having, you know, communicating and get involved with the players on the forums, is good and a refreshing change from the years of silence. Be nice to see more of those blue and red icons on more posts however, see we dont bite, dont be shy, we welcome you into our family.

Keep it up...

Chiming in for support. Keep it up Devs, the forum is your daily stop! Communication is like pussy, the more you get the more you want and the better life is.

The reality of Eve is that, if you don't love it like it is today, you should probobly go ahead and unsub.

I can tell you that this is one of the moments where we look at what CCP does and less of what it says.

You can bet we will be keeping it up and we will bring you information on what is going on just whenever we can. I realize a lot of people are concerned that there are a lot of blue bars but not very much information. Like CCP Zulu states in his blog, we are changing a lot of cool stuff here in CCP and that is down to making sure we listen to you guys and aim towards providing you the best possible EVE experience.

The Community team, along with other developers and GM's, will be here on the forums reading your questions and trying to get answers to those we can. It is important to note that we cannot answer every question or spoil big announcements by posting too early.

So how are you all doing this fine Friday?

my concerns arnt about teh blue bars, its about the lack of actual information, your not even talking to the csm about your blogs.
so what are these changes? thats what we want to know, not watch this space. details are what is needed.
if i had a euro for everytime one of you guys posted soon or it will be awesom, id be rich but we still would have a broken game

OMG when can i get a pic here

Fantastically Fabulous, since it *is* a Friday.

Also, I will echo the sentiment that it is great to see devs posting a lot, and giving what (little) info they can.

Talk is cheap as promises, by their nature, do not actually deliver anything of value, they only create expectation of valuable delivery. Actual work has to be done to provide worth. But interactive communication is the path to a better community as well as a better EVE. There cannot be much meaningful communications between on us an issue we do not give you information on.

It is rather hard for us to juggle those two sides of disclosure at the moment. Say too much too early and we cannot deliver everything we promise, at least not at the time promised, if we run into unforeseen issues. Say too little and we look like we're hiding something or that we're trying to bury issues and discussions as well as it robs us of valuable time to react to community input. I'm not sure if there's a proper way of going about this but that's cool: I'm a programmer, my job is the database.

As for my code-monkey opinion: I hope we're not going to start promising anything until we know what we're delivering or at least that we take it slow and don't promise the world to start with and then start cutting corners. I am confident that I am both not the only one of that opinion nor is that the only opinion. I'm also confident that there are people of vehemently disagree with me but that's bound to happen whenever I post on these forums.

In closing I'd like to wish my coworkers that actually have to solve this conundrum the best of luck.

thanks for a straight view point. can i get my euro for each past promise now? pls

its the end of september, expansion is what 3 montsh away. and not knowing what you can for sure produce in that time is a worry, but its a side worry really. my biggest worry is the state of the game currently. pos's, corp interface/roles, sov, scaps, etc etc etc. to many of my eve friends have left, i worry more will leave or worst still the ones that have left wont come back.

what ever you have up your sleeve, it better be ******* AWESOM

And what is the problem with failing to deliver something you have talked about? You're going to get hell from some (read, a lot of people) but its not something your playerbase is unfamiliar with.

I'd rather have you failing to deliver promised content like "Dominion II" then have you deliver something which was not discussed with your playerbase like the $80 monocle, new turret icons, removal of ship-spinning, and other ideas that would have been shot down in a ball-o-fire if talked about. Now CCP has to spend resources rectifying most of that.


Want an example? The new overview icons. You proposed them, we saw them, they sucked, you scraped them.


I understand that some things might still be at the planning stage and you haven't showed these things to tech people like Prism X to know if they are doable or not. But as soon as you get the "Yeah, we can do it" you should talk about it BEFORE commiting resources to actually getting it done.


It IS as simple as that.

The world is a community of idiots doing a series of things until it explodes and we all die.

Excellent feedback.

Its really a debate between "Under Promise and Over Deliver" or "Over Promise and Under Deliver". As PrismX said, they both have their drawbacks, and with how the EVE community is (well, the forum community is mostly whining and complaining, interspersed with some intelligent sane thoughts), you're kinda screwed both ways from CCP's perspective.
