Who was her predecessor?


CCP Soundwave was.

The seat was empty for a long time, with CCP Pokethulhu filling in as needed.

Proud founder and member of the Belligerent Desirables.

I thought this was CCP Unifex's old job she was taking, not CCP Soudwave's.

I don't have a Reddit account, however I do have an honest question.

CCP Seagull has taken EVE in the direction of several smaller updates vs the standard 2 larger updates, and I'd like to know how CCP can support bigger projects such as the POS over hall under the new release structure? I know several of these major projects can not be completed in a small time or by only a handful of individuals. Would putting teams on such a large project over such a long duration impede the ability of CCP to still offer meaningful updates as often as it plans too? Also will you still be planning to put focus on major overhauls of current systems that the Eve Community has rallied behind?

I think I can tackle that. If I recall this was covered at fanfest, I dont recall exactly where I heard it but I do remember hearing it. The idea is that a team like that may be working on a big project, like for example POS structures, for a long time. Maybe two, three or ten releases will pass by while the team works on it. The nice thing about the small releases is that when the team DOES finish it, say a week after a release, they only have to wait 5 weeks for it to go public instead of 6 months. If a feature is supposed to go out in a certain release and its not ready, no big deal, it will go out on the next one in just 6 weeks instead of trying to rush it to release because they wont get another chance for 6 months.

I guess you picked the wrong game then if you are looking for single player content.


Yes, because you need to talk and fleet up with everybody every frakking time you log in Roll

"We will make changes to nullsec, add new ships, balance and revamp ships, modules and structures, add new missions and new kinds of dynamic content, add new invention gameplay and continue to improve industry. We will take the next steps towards our vision of player built stargates and, behind the scenes, we will start work on next generation structures and big changes to corporations and alliances."

Thats some really big promises for such a short time and boy do I hope you can deliver!

There is nothing wrong about well-designed "single player" content (which almost absolutely absent from Eve). I quoted it because there is no such thing in Eve, and usually saying something like that ppl imply "PvE in general" or "solo-oriented PvE". Those who GRRRR about it remind a baby crying that no one want to play with him. Usually those are the same people who adhere to 3l1t3 3V3 PvP style which implying ganking helpless targets while staying out of any fight which will endanger their KB efficiency. Those pesky carebears GRRR, why why they won't wish to be ganked all the time by such magnificent daredevils as we are!

Btw, I ninja edited my post to clarify definitions.
Do you have some s3cr3t l33t PvP Order, handing out propaganda brochures to its agents? Because those cliches, like "kindergarden", "Hallo Kitty" etc surface all over the forum and became sort of vanity words. No one hurt by them or offended anymore. As for main point, there hasn't been one mmo game in the world, which profited in any way from badly implemented PvE. And in Eve PvE is awfull.

Their is no such thing as PvE in EvE Online, every single activity is PvP competiton. Even logging in can be PvP, if you have a keylogger on your computer.

You can juggle sophisms as much as you like, but all that time someone shooting crosses in empty/blue local with nothing happening, not even awoxing incidents for days, he is pretty positively attend to almost pure PvE content in Eve. And it happens actually most of the time, because PvE is actually only source of ingame currency, aside from FW, may be; if it wasn't that way, no one aside from PLEXers whould have had isks to pay PvP bills. Thats basically means that those ppl have to spend many hours attending to crappy, boring content before they will be able to PvP again. Even in case if SRP program is in place it simply means that some other poor fellow in Empire did this for them, because, you know, moons can't be mined for isks, only for moongoo.

CCP doesn't condone the act of account stealing. It's in no way allowable PvP and account theft is not something CCP has ever promoted as PvP.

Furthermore non-depleting resources like missions are in and of themselves effectively not PvP as doing them itself causes no isk or LP competition (those only become "PvP" later at the market level) and since doing them itself causes no reduction for others their is no competition in the act itself.

In EvE Online, everything is releated with PvP competition, including missions.

I've demonstrated how they aren't, so unless you have reasoning to back it up, your words are a little hollow.
