So CCP will give everyone a painball gun... that way when fanfest comes and we freak out about some new feature we dont like we can riot and shoot a monument in real life.

Sounds like a troll.
Sounds like a way to squeeze the more money possible out of inactive players. Otherwise you would've put the registering of active players this week end, and not in a month.

It didn't desserve a countdown.

Meanwhile we are still waiting for CCP to produce real content.

Well the counter was really trollish, but we deserve that.....

I like it. You have my thumbs, toes and nipples up! :D

The way I'm seeing it:

Wedge structure = Caldari
Dome structure = Amarr
Mirror = Gallente
Steel plate on the bottom = Minmatar

Also people going to Fanfest should take rubber bands so they can shoot the monument.

I think it's pretty cool.

Thank you for honoring your player base, CCP!

Great idea, I even like the style of the monument. not sure the count down timer was the best way to deliver this info, but non the less I've always thought I deserved a monument with my name on itShocked

So how do I make sure that my other character "Sir Captain ButtsMcFart" is the main character to be posted onto the monument?

So the sub numbers are dropping and you need a way to give them a temp boost. Once again CCP being run by a EA marketing guy and a guy in $1000 Japanese pants are more manipulation and marketing rather than substance.

10 year anniversary was a money grab to start with (All the new stuff being tied behind the collectors edition) and a money grab at the end (Sub now or your name wont be on a rock most of you will never see)

I'm not even mad, the sad thing is this is business as usual for CCP nowadays.

How many precious CCP resources are being thrown at this statue?
How many coding-months dedicated to fixing / overhauling legacy code could have been purchased for the cost of this monument to the hubris of some people?

Eve is a virtual world.
What is the point of a statue that the vast vast majority of the player base will never see, and most will never even hear about?
CCP would have been better off coding this monument into the game and placing it in Jita.

It would have more value to more of the player base.

It will be interesting to see if some of the... unique... names of the EVE playerbase end up on that plaque.

One of ours, ten of theirs.

why should I care that a monument is erected in Iceland?
if you'd put in on the moon, maybe...

Nice work. I'd love to see it in person one day (brazilian here) :)

I also love these "time capsules" stuff.

10 years and counting for a video game is really remarkable. Keep your roots strong CCP !

Hm, not complaining really.

Just a question: when are you planning to stop celebrating your first years of accomplishments (the last 4 for sure are not to count)?

I'm eager to see you swinging the whip and doing something great again, not resting on your past accomplishments. Yes, you hurt yourself with Incarna, Dust and WoD (all failed as of now). You decided to GIVE UP the dream of a fully integrated game and split up your projects into different games/platforms. Thats just what everyone else does too, nothing special about that tbh.

So, the monument is nice for looking back, but when will you start locking ahead again, and letting us know about it?
