Spaceships is what I'm referring to as focus.

So you're basically just a man-child, is that it? Grow up. Do your job. And take a class in customer service, ffs. Here's a hint - being a douche to your customers is counter-productive.

Plain-speaking is what is required at this point in time. Not your childish attempts at being an internet coolguy.

Also, this.

[u]The nerfs to supercaps will cause more super pilots to join the largest alliances who can properly "support" their deployment, further concentrating firepower/wealth in EVE. The end result will be fewer "fun" fights, and will hurt EVE in the long run.[/u]

None of it matters much or deals with the major complaints we have had.As for a new focus from CCP? Excuse me while i step around that new pile of bullcookies. When i see new t3 ships and see the aur system along will all the space babrie clothing removed then i will believe that CCP has gotten back to business.Otherwise this is all nothing but CCP trying to figure out how they are going to inject the rest of the crap into the game without losing another 30% if its player base before christmass.Twisted

I for one am pretty pleased with the devblog Shocked

Yes there are no definitive plans or announcements made and its sparse in detail, but for me that's not as important as the overall change of tone and fact that CCP is saying they are listening to feedback and are refocusing their efforts to try and give us what we want. That surely has to be a good thing.

Start wide, expand further, and never look back

Excellent PR and communication skills. Congrats.

Statement on behalf of CCP from Arnar Hrafn Gylfason, Senior Producer for EVE Online. Good communication and trust between CCP and the EVE community has always been a fundamental priority for CCP and will continue to be so.

I am hopeful that CCP will get things straight. They SHOULD continue with the plans for Incarna but put at least 75% of resources into improving and correcting existing game play. less big new shiny and improvements on existing content.

... a promise...

you guys should consider to not use this word the next few month/years.

that is just like when a new mmo comes out and everyone who plays the beta says "it has potential". if someone says a new mmo has potential that usually means the idea behind this game sounds nice but atm its a unfinished, buged piece software and will fail if it is released in this state.

if ccp say something that is somehow linked with the word "promise", that can usually translated in to "blablabla".

EVE has some of the most cynical, scheming and suspicious players in all of gamerdom.

EVE - and occasionally CCP - made them that way. (or certainly helped, in any event)

And yet it appears CCP is continually surprised by the biteback from vague, buzzwordy and desperately optimistic announcements...

Look, everyone wants action over words, but words will always have to come first because that's just the nature of how things work. Why are you guys so naively bad at it?

CCP really needs to hire some PR people to help manage their messaging.

Perhaps those monocle sales can help pay for them?

since I'm still subscribed on account of foolishly long subscription choices, I'll take a liberty of coming here and letting you know my opinion:

I do not trust your words any more.

Convince me with your actions, or I'm out.

Thank you.

Just a suggestion for CCP Z. Please do not post or blog again until you have something to say with substance about what you are doing. I was expecting a lot more detail.

I would like you to spend resources primarily on fixing current FIS features and not on new exploding planets or flashy graphics. Balance (Hybrid guns), UE improvements, industry all need attention. Exploding planets sounds like you are thinking about DUST and not EVE.

I'm very much of a believer in the idea that the forums are "the vocal minority and rabble brigade" but anyhow, just have to let this out.

CCP Zulu, even if you believe that there's too much rabble, you really shouldn't say anything like that to any customers... that's customer service 101.

Customer is always right, it's the companys job to find out what people really want statistically, then make an educated decision on how to deliver best value and then move forward with production and implementation.

Of course you need to communicate with the customers but please do so professionally (The customer community can't be expected to do that, because well... it's internet spaceships, everyone is an individual).

To finish off, I liked the blog and I still trust you CCP! Just remember the devil is in the small things like this thread. If any of my fellow capsuleers agree, please sound off!

The blog has no information for me to comment about. Keep up the good job.
