Noah was fired, and that is a pretty good start.

I'm sad, angry and drunk right now. This game has been an emotional roller coaster to say the least.

Also, fire Hilmar.

And Torfi.

And Zulu.

Hire the people from FHC. Make Eve truly nasty (in a good way).

hey CCP i hope for you that the new guys that will do the community stuff will be good, and won't come in months.
your actions make no sense.... you don't fire the community team when you promise us to communicate more...

and i suppose the guy(s) who choosed the nex items prices and others ****** ideas are not on the list ?

Sad day hearing about Zymurgist and Fallout being gone.

Made even worse to hear my friend, and the entire web team out of Atlanta got the boot as well.

Cry

I think I'll let my guns fall idle, and give them the moment of respect they deserve.


Then I'll go right back to blowing **** up in their names!

And then they fire what are basically eve celebrities, in the same stroke? Thus making the community angry? Maybe we don't have the whole story, maybe those 2 quit. I can't believe anyone is that dumb.

edit: wait Wrangler too? ok fallout and zym i can almost take... but Wrangler? **** OFF CCP. I joined back in 2007 and he was there helping me on day one. This is BS.


Pretty much this.

What an appalling bunch of stupid from CCP we've had this year.

And after some excellent devblogs recently too. My hopes were building again, and my trust in CCP was somewhat restored.

Now??? Pfft.

WoD team I can understand, it may have been inevitable anyway - that's the sort of unfortunate accident that can happen, company has big plans during good times, circumstances change and the "expansion" of the company is now "overstretch". Nobody's fault really, just unfortunate.

But the community guys who are well-loved by the community at a time when CCP needs the community on its side?

Yeah, I say heads should roll at the top. This is getting beyond a joke, it's like a ******* Benny Hill farce.

Yeah they screw over EvE for years then fire the very people that helped keep us from giving up on the game.

BRILLIANT CCP. BRILLIANTLY STUPID THAT IS.

If its true they fired those folks that basically took the bullet over the summer, then they have lost all faith from me.

You don't **** on guys and girls like that, esp as they are the ones communicating with us and are very well liked.

Even if CCP bring him back they just blew away any sliver of trust in them going forward. CCP just killed all hope for respecting them every again.

Depends on who's idea's they were or who was in charge of managing the teams. Clearly hillmar wont fire himself.

Did those guys deserve it? I dunno.

Cutting the fat isnt always a bad thing. So lets hope for the best. Until then speculation as to the outcome.

I see the word "RogueOperator" and all I can hope is your job in RL is not a clown giving out Carousel rides at kids parties. (or maybe it was so that's why you're here all day)

Man you are sooooo negative. If everything is soooo bad in Eve, why are you even here?

Cuase they dont give refunds on prepaid subs.

You see i used to have faith in CCP. They blew it with incarna. And made it worse almost every decision since. Even the bit of hope i had about winter expansion was crushed by the realization CCP has not in fact learned a damn thing from all of this.

How many need to be laid off until Hilmar is added to the list?
Always ... Never ... Forget to check your references.   Peace out Zulu! Hope you land well!

Yeah, telling in a "which direction is this game going in" kind of way

youre thinking them laying off 20% of the company is a good thing?
