Not that we really saw much of him.... but

this must have happened very recently. He wrote a dev blog on 22nd January 2016

https://twitter.com/pthorarinsson (note ref to former lead designer in about section)

did I miss this news ?

so EvE have someone else now ?

I'm not saying those people were not important, or didn't work hard, or their work was bad. Let's consider, though, there is room for improvement and other people could possibly perform their jobs better? The quote assumes this is not the case.

Don't forget this is the EVE for which we have just as many gripes as praise.

Basically I'm saying that if all the "faces" left I'd have some hope that maybe we'd start getting mainstream, logical, fun game design.

I mean COULD you imagine it worse.

I am inclined to believe that people have been leaving CCP for a few years now because they want a few jobs between them and CCP before the company implodes.

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.

Agree to some extent. CCP Arrow lead the new icons effort. (and all the UI/UX stuff)
I hate the new icons. When he left I was hoping the UI/UX stuff would chill a bit... but then we got the camera changes...

I really think CCP is adding way to much UI. I want to look at the space and the ships and not have everything covered up by UI. (but im getting a bit off topic here)

I always imagined game industry as very fluid work market and you have to change often the projects in this business.
When I see how long people can stay in CCP, I think its something unusual.

Agree but when its the lead designer.. Its more of a big deal.

Eg CCP Scarpia was the new CCP Soundwave in EVEs hierarchy.

Well, bringing mainstream talent to Iceland is difficult... you could argue that any talent willing to trade anywhere on Earth but Brussels for Reykjavik, is not exactly normal.

(But then, if CCP opened an office in my home town, things would be quite different... P )

So...this star status...these guys are keeping the ship from sinking...or, seeking new horizons to conquer?
Recent events negate the latter, and I'm not so convinced of the former. If a "dev" speaks to someone,
that dev is now the hero holding the thing together. I'm not ready to confer Richard Burton Movie Star status
on a CCP dev. Sorry.

PS I reread the subject line and it struck me! GOOD NEWS!!

My couple of minutes of looking into this turns up that he is now the co-founder of http://www.solfar.com/about-avenue/

Given how much CCP has been working with people in VR, this actually isn't a terrible surprise.

I wish him the best of luck on his new venture.

People come and go in companies all the time, sadly it sone of the things that happens. Sometimes this is a sign that a company is going under, sometimes its a sign that the company will now improve (if say the person who bailed was the one dragging it under) and sometimes, its nothing.

CCP seems to be on stable footing atm, though we really dunno. But who cares? He was a guy doing a job. End of story. Good luck Scarpia, wish you could of made a mobile eve CCG but meh
