While I'm *all* for WiS, and can envisage many many cool things that CCP could do with it, i quickly realised that while the concept of having an auditorium for your pilots, and someone perhaps talking over battleplans (like the end of Star Wars) is nice, how do you create an environment (let alone a game engine with such fidelity!) that could easily handle as many players as you'd find in a massive alliance fleet? Not to mention the load on the graphics cards - CCP would end up having an awful lot of people complaining about melted cards i think ;D


No, odds are about 2/3rds of your pilots would not have the computer capable of rendering a full station interior + pilots. So, you'd have 1/3rd in the meeting hall, and 2/3rds spinning their ship listening to boring details of a fight that might not even happen....Cool

I am not, nor will I ever be...Nicky Yo.... The question you should ask is.....When will they release the NICKY!

Forget about World of Darkness.... sell the damn rights to that twi-hard emo crap and let some other wannabe gaming company run with it.

Give us WiS!

Eve is about Capital ships, WiS, Boobs, PI and Isk!

I would pay CCP double the normal sub rate if they would get rid of WiS forever.

IMHO it is a complete distraction and waste of resources Server resources as well as CCP paid employee resources.

WiS has no purpose in a space combat game.

It is simply a ploy to get the FPS players into eve.

Next thing these FPS players will want are guns to shoot at each other in WiS.

CCP this is wrong for eve very wrong. DO not go here no good will come of it.

WIS got shelved because it was not possible to implement nipples for the exotic dancers.
Thats all.

WiS is a great opportunity for EvE, even implemented as simple social envinroment has a great grow potential for Eve. And a large playerbase is willing it since ages and would be silly for CCP to give it up.

However I don't think anything about this (as about any other "strategic" feauture) can/will be said or evaluated for now. Eve is keept on a manteinence releases level since more than one year now; and I thinki will be so till everything with Dust release is ok and stable.

I've locked this thread as there is another one on the same subject here which includes a pertinent post from CCP Bayesian regarding the current status of Team Avatar.
