I hope that the people losing their jobs in this difficult economic climate are able to rebound quickly.

Although as an EVE player I am happy to see CCP focus, it is still a difficult thing to see people lose their jobs.

~~~ CCP ATL EMPLOYEES: ~~~

The software shop I work for is looking for developers, and we have positions open in Atlanta (Duluth / Suwanee area), as well as Southwestern Virginia (about 5-6 hours from ATL).

We're primarily interested in .NET, Java, Python, and PHP devs. I think it's possible we may have some design positions, but not in any 3d space (no animation, motion capture, etc). We compete in the cloud industry.

Message me with inquiries; I'll make a point to check gate.eve throughout the day. On second thought, I set up an email alias: [email protected] so that you don't have to use work resources to inquire about employment. Heh.

You rock!

heheheheh...

keep posting this, keep it on top. :)

I've seen a few people say that EVE is having financial problems. I this true?

If so i find it strange that their solution to this would be to focus on old content. Don't get me wrong, i'm all for improvements to the existing game but i also want to see the game move forward.

I tried to get three friends to play EVE in total but they all say pretty much the same thing; the UI is horrible, missions are boring, everyone is way better than me, i don't want a second job, when is this door in my CQ going to open? etc.

I'm glad that resources are being reallocated to improve the game i'm playing for but that will not see a significant increase in revenue. I very much doubt that Dust 514 will be the savior of EVE either.

The one thing that had real potential to inject some life into the game was Incarna and now that's being shelved?! The the idea of incarna is the reason i subscribed to the game and i think new content would have allowed new players to operate on the same level as the vets. Now the only future for me in this game involves doing the same old stuff i've been doing for the past year and a half but oh look, we now have new nebula and turrets.

How lnog do you think it will be before another developer comes along and improves on EVE's formula? You know that a Mass Effect MMO is already in the works right?

Your focus should be:

Arrow Improve/fix all the little things people have been complaining about for years (e.g. FW, bounties, POS mechanics, UI overhaul etc.)
Arrow Redesign Incarna to be a game within eve. (I'm not opposed to micro transactions in incarna either, as long as you don't take the ****)

(Posting as the last alt that is still awaiting sub expiration)

Losing 20% of your employees hurts. Best wishes to those out to find new jobs. Perhaps you folks should bring a good alternative to EVE Online? (It could probably be programmed in flash and be competition.)

The CCP hilmar interview looks like any CEO interview. Stick to his actions, not his words is all I say.

Firing well known personell that in my opinion did a fairly good job for the community is another step to the end of New Eden. Until I am confident the content has been fixed and gameplay is again as entertaining as when i started playing a couple years ago, I won't return.

Good luck CCP, I don't think you are quite on the right track yet.

This is the best news I read all year. Thank you for keeping EVE going and investing in our future. I've been here nearly 6 years and EVE is the only game I play (other than DragonVale on my iPhone Lol). Spaceships + Persistent Universe = MMORPG awesomeness.

I hope to be able to stay here the rest of my gaming life Big smile

perhaps the almost daily client updates and patches since the release of crucible should be sending the message that either you let the wrong people go, or you are still spread too thin to do quality work in eve online.

Perhaps you should get a better life, since you're whining about a simple hour and half update that sometimes happens each day to make the game better for YOU!! Been with Eve a long time and its the only truly great game that makes it self better and better. Good work guys. The new nebulas are blowin my mind!!!!Shocked

Wow Seewong, Leawiz's comment went right over your head didn't it? Reading comp fail. Perhaps Seewong you should "get a better life" since you seem to not be able to handle criticism of a game you enjoy. But i cannot lie the fact you missed the point of his comment completely then proceed to flame on a faulty premise there by revealing how you can not understand simple concepts is well... quite enjoyable, almost as good as tearz. Thank you.

ClusterFook you have no idea what your talking about. Yes please please dont talk bad about EVE to me on forums for i get MADDD!!!. I understood leavwiz comment completely, I just disagree wholeheartedly, its short-sighted and naive. Some simple updates is not a valid criticism that CCP doesnt have their cajones together. Any time you do a big update for a software program your going to have issues, especially one as complex as EVE. So someone whinning about some patches and then another person defending he/she with nothing but mindless banter baffles me.

Incarna demonstrated that the Carbon engine was barely capable of displaying a single avatar sitting on a couch and scratching its ass without causing your PC to burst into flames. Even if CCP went full speed ahead with avatar development, you'd be waiting a long time, and CCP can't afford to keep their playerbase waiting that long for content.


I know it's probably impossible to do. But do you think I care? IT WAS PROMISSED. It should be possible to do in some way - maybe limiting the number of players walking around in one station or place. I dont know. It's not my job.
