Can't wait to go to space. I only wish I could be there to see it.

Really hoping FW is going to FINALLY be fixed with a theme like "War."

Sad to see you go, Zulu, despite unpopular decisions attributed to you. At the very least, you catalyzed one of the most impressive expansions to date.

Welcome, Unifex, and here's hoping you make decisions that are both popular and (more importantly) good for the game.

Also, echoing previous poster: Space Balloon Thing is ******* COOL.

Wow, didn't expect this. Sad to see you go was the best of times, and the worst of times for Eve and it couldn't have been an easy job being in the hot-seat. I sure hope you still plan to stick around CCP, whatever your new role.

That said, with the MASSIVE change in direction that is ongoing at CCP, it's good to have some fresh meat in the hot seat. I hope good things will come of it for all in New Eden.

And yeah, my character in "space"?? Wow, cool arse. I hope it will be broadcast in HD as part of the Fanfest pay-per-view this year? You are still going to have that, like last year, right? That was one of the highlights of my year...getting to watch the Fanfest in HD glory from halfway across the world.

Zulu, you were an awesome dude - you had it rough. I liked your antics. Cool

@ new SR Producer -

1 - Fix Faction War
2 - Fix Sov War

(New war themes work well with this!)

3 - Get Incarna on track please - (Winter)
4 - Fix "Shooting at Structures"
5 - Make EVE Feel Bigger! (New Style for Local, Homesteading)
6 - And Little Things!

Where I am.

That’s right, the character names and images of every player character subscribed at the end of this year will be placed in an expertly crafted EVE Pod during Fanfest 2012.

All of them? Even... ? ??

Will we get some love too?

We solo players?

We hisec dwellers?

We WiS hopers?

On the balloon thingie: don't do it live. It's gonna take a good while until the balloon reaches up there, so, keep people entertained between "launch" and "hit the sky". (The exact time may vary with volume and payload, check with the balloon guys, but it's not unual that those beasts take most of an hour to reach their ceiling... be warned)

Goodluck CCP Zulu, try not to listen to everyone on here. While some of your decisions may have been unpopular, you were still behind the wheel for Crucible, which I have to say was probably the most epic expansion I've been around for (or at least a close tie with Apoc). Best of luck to you wherever you go.

CCP Unifex, best of luck to you too with your new position, I can't wait to see what you do with it (dev blog about plans please?).

Because MMOs put solo players as a top priority.

Would like a synopsis of how " WAR " fits the behavior exhibited in allowing dec shields, allowing for unchecked exploitation of incursions and still broken aggression mechanics that have been wholly confirmed only to be dealt with in a biased and lopsided manner.

Good luck staying true to your newest catch phrase, I look forward to this actually being the case for a change.

The advantage of a bad memory is that one can enjoy the same good things for the first time several times.

One will rarely err if extreme actions be ascribed to vanity, ordinary actions to habit, and mean actions to fear.

Its always sad to see people go, but when they were the person behind the wheel during the car crash that was Incarna, it's a little hard to feel sympathy.

I'll just add that his previous blog entry titled 'Give me monocles or give me death!' was aptly named.

Personally, I hope that it involves a handbasket.

This is my signature. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.

Someday, this signature may save my life.

Unlike others, I will not blame Zulu for being the senior producer in charge while upper management was snorting coke and wearing expensive pantaloons.

So good luck Z.

And hello Unifex.

Good god y'all, War! Huh! Yeah!
