WiS has to come eventually otherwise everyone who bought Aurum-priced boots for their character got ripped off

No, little space trollette. The moment CCP laid off a significant portion of its employeеs and switched EVE to life support/ship stat rebalance mode, we all lost. You just don't understand it yet. Maybe, in 3 years you will.

Мауbe, you'll even get into an alliance big enough to build a player-owned stargate to the brave new Goonspace™ that is supposedly the new jesus feature, but you'll still log in into the same game with 10-year old POS system, abysmally idiotic NPC grinding for isk, the same sov mechanic, the same wonderful "epic fleet battles" of brackets and spreadsheet overview in time dilation. Because CCP won't touch most of your "myriad of things" with a 10-foot pole for multitude of reasons.

What is dead may never die, little forum warrior with a big pitchfork. You can only beat yourself. Again.

When you're done playing WoW, try and take the time to read at least some of the thread....

Why can't you just wait 3 years? It's not THAT long, really.


However, the last line I will consider answering. So... let’s see… Eve has been in existence for 10 years. It’s now been two years since CQ was released. But you ask us to wait another 3 years? Let’s do the math here. So you’re basically asking for pro-WiS people to wait more than a third of Eve’s existence (by that time), before they even begin work on it, to add any real content to WiS? Apologies if I just don't find that favorable.

Don't get me wrong. I won't be surprised if I'm still here 3 years down the road. I've already invested 6 years of my gaming life to this game, 6x longer than any other game I've played, and I enjoy Eve the way it is now.... but that doesn't mean I can't desire to see more from WiS now rather than adding more nullsec real estate to the stacks of already "claimed" but unused real estate.


I wasn't trolling. No, really. I was just poking fun. You are welcome to reciprocate, no need to get mad. Althought that is also funny.

You missed point c) which was the most relevant. Summer of Rage was not just about MT, altho some of you want to desperately revise it. We saw the proposed WiS, and tbh, all a lot of us thought was. Hid yo wallet. Our game, our fwiends, for this crap. Also, my graphics card buhuh. Mass unsubbing. Never forget.

So we shouted, and raged and waved our pitchforks. And ye know. We won. You lot lost, and you only just realised. You could at least take it gracefully. Or, ye know, consolidate together and create a coherent, relevant, immersive plan that doesn't just appeal to perverts or people with a short attention span.

Again.

There are more of us who like Eve as it is, than those who basically, want a completely new game. HTFU or move on.You lost this argument a long time ago. But the whining is exquisite, do continue.

2/10 imo. You were obviously having too much fun as you were writing. Just way too over the top and blatant, but the amount of text you vomit is surely worth 2 points towards making your posts seem legit.

Which if they were would mean you're a little rusty on your history there, Ms Mallow. Ugh

"You'll next visit character creation. Several years ago CCP reconfigured the character creation to make it some of the best in the business, but many players became upset that any emphasis was being placed on systems other than on combat or spaceships. There was a perceived uproar (at least from this permanent newbie's perspective) that many EVE Online players thought that creating what is essentially in-game housing for avatars to walk around in was a useless and silly endeavor. There are many players (and I am not exaggerating) who would be happy with a series of spreadsheets to play with so they wouldn't have to mess with silly spaceships. Don't listen to some veteran player with a super-mean looking avatar: There were and still are many, many EVE Online players who would love the ability to socialize and explore outside of their spaceships. I am one of those people."


Quote:
"When we look at it from the brand-newbie's perspective, the character creation and in-station time is essential. It gives the game some life, something that is often missing from the game. You can always find plenty of life within the chat box, but either you understand the appeal of social environments or you don't. It's a real shame that a new player walks up to the exit that will bring him into the social area of a station and it remains locked, even after all of this time."


Good to see this still gets some coverage in the news these days. Smile Yes it's joystiq so who cares... still, nice of them to post something about it. Even though we can't agree on what sort of WiS content should be added, it's good to keep the conversation going. Smile

Yes, good article. Massively is probably the best MMORPG blog around and the guy writing EVE reviews is intelligent and generally on spot.

Beside, ehe weakness and aspects in EVE are in need of attention sound obvious to any experienced gamer.

Just saw that article and came here found this.

So has anyone from CCP noticed this thread at all? Seems like one of the biggest threads (in a short time) must have some important information about what players are up to?

no?

Also sounds obvious that adding more nullsec toys on top of "fixing" nullsec sov is not going to make noobs queue to try out the game.

I'm pretty sure it's to the point they aren't looking for new people. Just trying to control the leaking.

Probably.
But it doesn't matter, the response is always the same.

"Blablabla .. we would love to...
Blablabla ... but currently nobody is working on it
Blablabla ... because *insert any statement, mostly something about current development*
Blablabla ... and there are no plans to change that in the foreseeable future."

A post like that pops up from time to time, just dig through the other WiS threadnaught, you'll finde some of them there.

The responses are always the same too. Stuff like "it's okay they are fixing things, but they should start in ~2 years". Guess what most of us said, two years ago (;

I thought i read an article a month or so ago on a MMO site that mentioned CCP was going to make an MMO with heavy Avatar interaction. Can't remember if it was for EVE. Has anyone heard anything about CCP plans?

The "plan" for World Of Darkness seems to to be "expend as few resources on this contractually obligated white elephant as we can get away with, in the hope that somebody out there is as dumb as we were when we bought White Wolf and wants to take it off our hands. Anybody? Please?"
