Veritas, don't be sorry, the jokes are super OK (and do them more often!)


I don't mind that I pay for the game and patch notes are funny.


If you love the game and the company, there is a word for it - loyalty. I dont even have to use it - loyalty - to accept these jokes; on the contrary. These jokes actually making the relationship between the player & game studio.


Well, that's my rather philosophical view on the issue and Veritas, dont even think about to stop being funny! Smile

I used to think the CCP jokes were a bit cute and/or mildly entertaining as well.

But considering their last few years fuckup in this game, Soundwaves ego and bashing on players, Hilmars ego and bashing on players, CCP's utilizing CSM for whenever it suits them for propaganda purposes (and ignoring them rest of the time), CCP being stupid enough to balance the game for a minority in unbalanced super-income sov null and actually listen to blobpropaganda, CCP stating internally they don't care about players and this games origin as long as they can get more customers, CCP rushing out the latest "make-up expansion" a sellout to win voters rather than actually making sure it has some proper balance, etc..

It all adds up to CCP not being funny, and they deserve every smack they get on the forum. Even tho the OP is pulling it off quite bad, and I sound like a stuck vinyl player, there's absolutely no reason whatsoever to laugh and encourage CCP's jokes, until they give us any reason to like them again. I stopped years ago. The core of the game is still good, and there's just no better alternative on the market (I keep trying to find one), but the current CCP doesn't deserve any encouragement, only insults.

If anything, laugh at me and other angry players, but don't be a tool, think longterm consequences and.. see what CCP actually do, not what they say. Twisted

1) I for one like when CCP can show us they're humans too by adding - bad - jokes in their patch notes lol



Quoted for truth.

CCP Dev's are human too (yeah, who would have thought that, eh?). Nothing wrong with some humour, no matter in what context.
It's like that Grandmother who sent a text to her old friend "I heard your husband passed away - LOL"
She thought "LOL" was "Lots Of Love".

Point is, humour is humour, bad taste or good. In this case, CCP Dev used it to good effect and in good taste. It certainly brought a grin to my frustration.

To long; didn't quote :P

I would agree with you, if this were a year ago (or whenever that was) and CCP was still touting the monocle, and etc and etc or whatever. Really though, they have turned all the way around, starting with Hilmars mail, and the talks with the CSM. Yea, talk is one thing but actio... OMG CRUCIBLE! <3 CCP! and remember crucible was started very late in a release cycle as a way to show players they were taking complains seriously. I say they did a damn good job of it.

Now, if that changes in the future, I'll be right back on CCP's case because I have high expectations of them and for Eve. In the mean time though, even since Crucible 1.0, I've seen major changes and fixes to the core gameplay that helps everyone (brackets were pretty nice in the 6oy fight!, thanks whoever is working on those). For that I think people are willing to cut them some slack if they want to be funny in patch notes, troll the forums (awesome post CCP Punkturis), or whatever keeps them happy as they code away fixes to my spreadsheets :)

This isn't about you, Veritas! Go to bed! (good job on the patch BTW )

It's about community self moderation, and talking the OP's "old jalopy" out for a spin apparently...

OP I found your old girl a bit rusty under the hood...I greased her axle a bit and now she purrs like a cougar.

Oh and I put 2 cents under the mat...

Am I doing this right?

Seriously. Walk outside and get some fresh air you "paying" customer.

We're a community, and that includes the Devs, so yes, they're allowed to have a sense of humor - play around and show that we're going to enjoy the game we play.


Oh wait, it's a FREAKING GAME, WE PLAY, TO HAVE FUN.

You sir, are taking this game way too seriously. If the game was so broken that it is unplayable it would be one thing, but I've definitely played games that were much worse, and they even had serious patch notes!

Internet spaceships is serious business. (and CCP has finally re-realised that).

One of the bitter points of a good bittervet is the realisation that all those SP don't really do much, and that the newbie is having much more fun with what little he has. - Tippia

Although I get your meaning, I'd say it is more accurate to state that CCP has realized everyone (including themselves) are a lot better off if our internet spaceships are a little less serious business and a little more fun.

I don't see anything wrong with the Patch Notes...

Well since it is more a case of the kid brother giving his own hand built custom hot-rod (which he kindly lets you use) a tune up, then joking about it afterwards, I'm perfectly fine with it.

dude, there are two things in life that you can't lend to anyone: your wife and your car.



no, your brother isn't exempt from this rule.

Huh, you learn something new everyday. I gues I'll have to go ask my brother if I can have her back then.

Maybe you should take an extended break or get a sense of humour. Either is good for the Eve community
