Best of luck to you in Iceland, Kil2. I hope your knowledge of solo and small gang PvP proves valuable with your new job. Not to mention your overall knowledge of the game. Your videos will be missed.

Thanks to CCP for hiring players as well.

Well.... guess we can't use the old "do you people even play your own @#$%ing game?!!" whine anymore.P Good to see more great players making it onto the development side!

And make some vids of roaming null solo in a Polaris frigate (or any of the other bizarre things they have)!

Well Kil2,


EVE used to feel like a space game. You could go systems without seeing anyone. You knew where pirates used to camp, and where large alliances called home. Now a days when you can traverse 50 systems in a matter of minutes..... where every system has multiple people..... where titans can bridge you lightyears travel in a matter of seconds. EVE no longer feels like a space game. Theres no big black abyss to it. It has grown in population, which is great, but hardly grown at all in reguard to its size. Im not talking a new region, like the drone regions expansion. Im talking like doubling the size of the map. Or hell even open up a second server so that some of us can choose to leave the overpopulated blob of eve and maybe get back to some elite style fighting.

Worst suggestion ever. Large areas of nullsec and w-space is totally empty. I can often go 10-15 jumps without seeing anyone. Lowsec has also have tonnes of regions with very little activity.

Are we even playing the same game?


And what have a space themed game to do with the numbers of ships around? You saying that, the more ships you see around the less space game it feels?

If you want "leet" pvp just move you lazy ass to a region with less people then.

Man you suck on so many levels.

Oh, great addition to the team. Hopefully drones will stop sucking.

Gratz man.

I got mixed feelings about this, because I really enjoyed your vids and podcasts.

On the other hand the views you presented on the new "1-role pr ship"-direction, in the recent bringing solo back (21), almost made me sprinkle white pearls of joy all over my car seat on my way to work. Those views needs to get closer to Iceland.

Well Kil2,

I am actually really dissapointed about this. Not because we are going to lose one of our famous faces and vid makers, but because I feel that this company isnt going to last til your retirement age. I like you and I liked our chats about all things eve. I didnt feel like I knew, James w, Raivi, calmdown, ifni, (the list goes on) so I didnt care about their decisions to take a job with CCP. So by no means do I wish ill upon the company but I do have some fears for you.

I hope that came accross as me being concerned and not scorned.

Anyways with that said. I hope that you can bring as much good change to the game as Raivi has. Its been impressive whats happened recently and I only hope for more of the same recent changes. I will ask that if you will try to keep this in mind and maybe bring it up to the company....

Okay suggestion box over and I know this really isnt the place for it, but I felt I would have one last say as we wont have any more for the forseeable future. Take care my friend. Ill miss our chats, and I wish you the best in your rl endeavors.

I agree with you on the relative "size" of space and the ability to go anywhere quickly via titan projection.


However, there is so much empty null and w-space it'll blow your mind. Get out of empire.

Not a diplo.

So I'm not clear on what exactly you're disappointed about here, unless that it's that Kil2 is likely to do work that will attract & retain more people to EVE rather than drive away 80 or 90% of them as you seem to want?

Kil2 has been one of the most worth listening to members of the Eve community for some time. He has a Youtube channel, a Live stream (and helped a great deal putting Live Eve streaming on the map), podcasted, commented at the Alliance Tournament and more. Even more importantly he has flown the flag for solo pvp, the idea that you don't need to sit in a blob to pvp that you can just grab hold of your courage, take out a ship and go find fights.

I'm delighted to see that he's joining CCP as a developer. This guy has a great understanding of the fun of Eve pvp and will be a huge asset to the dev team there.

I wish him all the best in his new job and hope he enjoys living in Iceland. Oh and pretty please CCP, let the archive stuff stay up please - it is still some of the best information available for players who want to learn more about pvp.
