Abandon Pervo WiS !

These forums have gone to ****.

I can't believe the crap that is being permited.

CCP has lost all control of it's game and it's forums.

If you think these forums are bad, go check out Wildly Inappropriate's forums.

Taiwanastan might be able to tell you if they still make their daily porno topics.

I wouldn't be surprised if goonswarm have those either...

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

A CCP survey is up, provide useful feedback of WiS to them. Go!

Nice survey...hope it's legit.


It's legit.

In fact, it's included with the December newsletter.


I wouldn't put much faith in that survey due to the fact that it isn't linked to active accounts. That means it can be easily exploited and manipulated allowing a player to complete it multiple times.

If CCP was serious, the survey would load up right after the log in page and could only be completed once per paid account. After it was completed, then the character selection page would load allowing access to the game.

It's a good idea for CCP to do survey's but they need to be implemented in a much more secure way to insure more accurate results.

No Hilmar, we don't want more spaceships. We want you to fix the current ones ! You may even want to release the promised ones.

And then we want you to walk over to your marketing department and tell them to stop telling everybody that "walking in stations" has been finally released until it really is ready to be released on TQ.

I saw Torfi walking a character through a bar and playing a cool game ... Now go and make that happen ! That's when you should start marketing WIS.

Also, I'm very surprised (although I shouldn't be) that it took you until NOW to figure out that PI could be used to make low-sec interesting ... really CCP ? After all those years ?

I wonder why I keep paying.


"More spaceships" in this context means more focus on the spaceship part of the game, the core gameplay. So it's not to be taken 100% literally :). There have been a lot of fixes and tweaks lately and there are more coming.

lol maybe CCP Guard has been given the thankless task of going through all the posts in this thread Blink Either way it's good to know they are paying attention, but on the other hand it doesn't look very promising as this shows that they are actively choosing to ignore us.

In all the time since WiS was announced I have yet to see anyone say exactly what there would be to do that would add anything to the game.

Normally I get mumbles about smuggling, gambling etc, which are minigames at best and so far Ive heard nothing suggested that warranted all of the work involved in getting it workng.

When someone tells me of something interesting that it will do, other than an Eve Ironforge where you /dance I may change my mind, but at the moment see no purpose in it.

I think you are confusing players with developers. It is not our job to design the game we play, just complain about it if things don't turn out the way we want. Smile

I could list a bunch of things we could potentially do in WIS but what good would that do?

Hopefully you do more than just complain, like also give positive recognition for good work.

Referring to the Ambulation video, that was just the first of many steps. WiS could bloom into full fledged game play content over time if given half a chance.

There's been a lot of good ideas for potential new game play content pertaining to WiS posted in this thread. Nothing wrong with that.

C'mon man...if you don't have any information that you are able to or allowed to divulge to us on the core issue of this thread then say so. At least a "I am sorry but I have no more information on the future of WiS at this time." is all it would take to keep people from getting annoyed with a reply that really only applies to one comment in a thread over 120 pages long that doesn't even really relate to the topic at hand.

It is nice to know there are more bug fixes and tweaks coming though. I like hearing that info too. You are one of the better devs that actually respond on the forums Guard. Keep up the good work...but please...get us more info on the future plans of WiS if possible.

everything is an game within game... And everything added is added to the game.. The fact that you and many others dont see it as "needed" "relevant" "improving" is quite frankly irrelevant.

If they add curtains to "THE DOOR" it will be something added to the game.. technically.
And the whine about it will be hilarious... People raging about CCP making curtains for "THE DOOR" instead of working on "spaceships" Big smile
I bet it will hit 450 pages in two days.. Hilarious.

Granted the whine about the curtains would probably be a lot less if CCP was more proactive about bug fixes and there were a lot fewer of them in the game but there would still be a lot of whine from idiots that seem to think CCP cannot devote a single Dev to anything other than FiS.

Maybe he is trolling you guys. Or, maybe like they have already stated there is no information, because there really aren't any concrete plans they can share yet. Maybe they know anything they say here that isn't in-line with what you guys want to hear is going to be creatively re-interpreted and misconstrued ad-nauseam and twisted around to appear that CCP does not care about you.

That's exactly the problem, there is a specific forum area for doing that, and for some reason you and others incorrectly think EVE GD is the correct place. Scattering suggestions all over the place isn't helping you or CCP. If you or anyone else wants things to remain on topic for making WIS feature suggestions, try keeping it all in one thread in the correct forum area. By posting the same stuff here in GD over and over, you are just begging to get trolled over and over.

There's a million angry citizens looking down their tubes..at me.
