I believe that's something that's already been considered, obviously.

Fozzie, just killed the game.
Put an update to its head,
Pulled the trigger, now it's dead.
Fozzie, sov had just begun,
but now updates take all day.

Fozzie, ooh,
didn't mean to make Eve die.
If it's not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on, as if you're going to get free isk.



its not a biscuit - this is hip hop you nit wit - learn to deal - or step back and kneel - you might find you can feel!
Blag the POS - scrape the ISK - paw at some free SP? not me im free. puffing on a splif - take a long Bio and puff on a splif it'll be back in a bit - until then sont talk s**t :P

While waiting for the servers, I got onto witcher 3 to pass a few rounds of gwent, It hit me then that I would like to see an eve version of the card game.

Is it daft to ask for compensation when befouled by CCP? I am glad I don't just accept crap in life like some sheep, who knows the EU might take over and treat us all like shite..... Oh yer they have already. Think it's time to move to Aus..



Generally it's considered pretty gauche and ill-mannered to demand compensation in situations like this. I was brought up better.

"Company X, this thing happened and I'm unhappy."
"Ohh, we're sorry Customer Y, please accept this compensation in apology."

That exchange is cool.

"Company X, this thing happened and I'm upset, gimme something!"

Yeah, that's pretty rude. Don't do that, kids.

To the creators of EVE ...

Don't want anything free instead just wanna say thanks for creating an awesome game ! Servers go down from time to time and I honestly can say I feel your pain if I could I'd send ya some advil and Timmies !

PS: DONT CLICK THE UPGRADE TO WINDOWS 10 ICON !!!!! Eve would self destruct the servers would never work right and we would all be stuck playing minesweeper !

There are 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don’t.

finaly the did it .... FOZZIE SOV

Dying is not scary, It's almost like we've been prepering for it our whole live's. But it was very sad. I didn't want to go. I love my life. I no longer try to be right. I choose to be happy.

And no I haven't asked for isk....and haven't kissed a£^&e of someone for stuffing up (heard of testing?)
How about being sure before you release a patch into game, like say have a test server.

Oh wait..!!



The trick that they seem to have missed is using identical hardware on the test server as on the production server.

Or they forgot to roll this patch out on the test server.

Has to be one or the other.

I've been in similar situations, it happens when devs get overconfident in their programming abilities.

Generally it leads to a CTA among the whole technical staff.
