CP will be launching each and every one of our subscribers who have a paying EVE account as of 23:59 GMT on December 31, 2011… into space itself. 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. That pod will then be affixed to a high-altitude balloon during the event and released

And before tha launch some reads every charactername on the back side of the picture and puts it in the pod. Big smile

I think I speak on behalf of a lot of the Eve community when I say thank you, Zulu, for the effort you put in. Will you be staying at CCP in a different role?

13 years and counting. Eve Defence Force is recruiting.

That is the kind of person who should be getting this kind of position.

I'll be following the future with interest.

Any idea where CCP Zulu is headed or what he will do now?
Personally, I hope that it involves a handbasket.

Don't be too hard on Zulu, he initiated great communication with us in CSM 5, attended all the meetings (first time a Sr producer did that), and most of the shortcomings associated with his "tenure" are due to the focus on InCarna, not because he personally sucked.

The end was rough but overall I like to think we're better off for his presence.

@CCP Zulu

Good luck in your future endeavors.

@CCP Unifex

Welcome to the hot seat. Good luck. Is part of 2012 going to be the first inklings of how you're going to introduce DUST 514 into the EVE universe and let us finally see the form of interaction we're going to have between the EVE players and the DUST players?

I mean one of the reasons you guys got into the jam you're in is that you were a 1 game house trying to develop 2 new games while supporting the existing one. You'll be a much happier house once the 2nd one is out the door and providing revenu to support the development of the 3rd game. So getting that 2nd game out the door IS kind of important in the long run.

Also is the dust beta going to integrate with Sisi at some stage?

I am glad we're going to see some refactoring of the old code base.

Will we have the opportunity to shoot down the balloon, or are you going to wimp out and launch it from an undisclosed location?

Stepping down doesn't mean anything negative, it means that CCP Zulu is trying to bring about positive change for the collective universe of eve online and giving producers with potential a chance to surface and keep delivered content on the cutting edge.

I respect that sacrifice and I hope that this move will be as significant for the eve universe as the change of hand between Zulu and Unifex was.

Hi guys and thanks for the kind words. It's going to be one hell of a ride and whilst I know it is going to be tough, I'm looking forward to the challenge.

I'm sure Zulu will pop in here soon. He is a key part of the plans for 2012 and I'm very, very glad he is on the team.

Well, Zulupark did an excellent job on the first Q&A forum quest (to streamline contacts between players and CCP|). All on his own. If you remember the second one that got aborted, you know how an immense task that was, with a hand full of devs not being able to complete it at all.

Nuff said. Zulu, hope you can focus your sometimes fury temperament onto something you like to do and being worthwhile for others.

To the new owner of the 1000 dollar pants, it is EVE.
Not the EVE, just EVE. Thank you. Smile

Also we get told time after time about the new tools and how amazing they are and how fast, in comparison with the past, they are now going to make life easier on the developers. Like for example how great they new mission PVE tools where, and all we have seen are just drops of new missions while back then the dev blog even mentioned the new mission could be uploaded just during any normal downtime.

So if you mention these new tools, being so great, could you please give some evidence that they actually work.
Because to be honest, I never have seen those old/ new PVE tools really in action.

Oh hey Zulu, don't stop poasting. We don't hate you. Only like to pod you. Blink

So you want to be a Hero
