Not sure about that.


What I do know is that when WoD was still being worked on, there were a lot of EVE players moaning about EVE not getting much attention and blaming WoD as well as Dust514.




But then what's the point in worrying about what might have been. Should be looking forward not back.






I remember that too. But then again, EvE player are always complaining about how EvE isn't getting enough attention. Smile

I honestly feel like I just read fifty shades of dumb. --CCP Falcon

It's actually very reasonable for a company to stick to one niche or product. It gives you a very strong strategic edge over newcomers invading your niche. Michael Jordan was a great basketball player, and basketbal was his niche. When he branched out into baseball, he got killed. Stick to your niche. It's what YOU ARE GOOD AT.

If CCP had reinvested Eve's profits back into Eve, there may be no Star Citizen on the horizon. All those millions of dollars burning in Chris Roberts' pocket would've been in CCP's bank account.

Instead here we are.

So you are saying ccp should have never made eve then?


I'm saying that you have missed a clause of the sentence, one that changes the meaning entirely. "CCP should have made no attempt to diversify... all so that we can walk in stations?"

Funnily enough, that sentence doesn't actually mean that I believe ccp should have made no attempt to diversify, quite the opposite in fact.

I think I'm owed an apology.




The above post likens star citizen to a particularly nasty form of spaghetti. You are being too generous to scam citizen, at least bad spaghetti exists.

You know, if CCP had used the time/money/resources they threw into a fire with World of Darkness, Dust514, etc on EVE instead we could be up to Tech4 and be walking, gambling, fighting, and screwing in Stations by now.


Now they throw money into a fire with Valkyrie and we still have a million 1/2 implemented or outdated/broken features.


WIS, FIS and Errr SIS is an ideal that sadly physics has consigned to the trash can, you simply can't get past that speed of light barrier in this day and age, Tiresome I know but there it is, My guess is some wig in CCP thought it a good idea to troll the players over it, after all the server load alone would send them into meltdown and consider the heat generation to be had from so many players simply trying to open that door in QC, Global warming or what, Bad enough as it is currently just trying to jump a 100 man fleet though a gate what with the idiotic graphics associated with it.

World of Darkness...DUST514.. My best guess here is those associated with them are currently very nervous indeed. VR will join this list once the Mug Money dries up.

Humanity is the thin veneer that remains after you remove the baffled chimp.

dead, live in a pod, can't walk, don't have genitals, no nookey, no little pods................

you live in a pod, if you need your dead bodies virtual mind to start shagging go find Lounge Suite Larry, I'm sure they must of covered that at some point.

as for what CCP do with their money, at least they aren't running off with it all and leaving us with a crap game like (name your favourite company here). or selling out gaming rights to a movie company (name your favourite Hollywood company that has destroyed your favourite MMO by neglect here).

This post is so bad. Comparing an individual to a company. There is a reason why most companies try to work in more than one market. You can't control everything and the market you are playing in could crash even if you have the best product there. If it's the only product you have, it's game over.
