I'm assuming there's some sort of information control thing going on here where CCP wants to have a steady pace of devblog releases, rather than throwing out a massive pile of them now and then having nothing to say next month. Since WiS development is a long term, low-intensity development process and there's really nothing being released for a while, the WiS blog gets bumped down the schedule, to make way for articles which need to be released urgently as they discuss things imminently coming out in the next patch or which are available to try out on Sisi already (as the last few blogs have been).

I expect it'll be out after the Inferno 1.2 release when CCP need to fill a quiet patch.

Too bad there was not a kick starter program for wis.

Allow people to put there money where their mouth is.
We would find out how much push there is for wis

Just a dumb idea to shoot around......

I already thought about it but probably wouldn't work; it would be a kind of a bad precedent.

(But then after the CSM election, for a couple of weeks I fantasized with the idea of financing a CSM so he could travel to Iceland on my expenses -which i would ask to recover from player donations-, if CCP was willing to have a WiS-sponsored 8th guest in the CSM meeting. Was just some speculation on how to deliver a strong message and have our voice listened to, but i eventually decided that it all was a bit crazy, and also Issler misfired as a "WiS candidate")

CSM is just a bunch of 0.0 pilots. I don't expect from them anything new.

I've actually thought about real money investing in the WiS team. And i think i will, if my little project still be alive in summer 2013...

in 2007 i've thought it's a sci-fi simulator, not an "e-sports" game. I'm not a teenager, how would i like it much?

I proposed such an idea in this thread.

But like Lost True says, it would probably set a bad precedent.

That said I would still pay AUR for that key Pirate

So far, I think that there is no way that CCP changes their mind on WiS unless DUST 514 floods them with millions and they can double their staff... and maybe not even that, crowd inertia is a mighty force.

Now, I've been figuring what could be done even if CCP didn't implemented WiS. Question

Theoretically, the right people could edit the client and modify the client side of CQ code to make it load a custom made environment outside of the "door". Likely it would not be possible to create a multiplayer environment running on TQ, but they could implement a limited mutiplayer on a custom P2P network running parallel to the TQ link. This way, some players could have as much 3D environments and WiS as they wanted.

Of course, doing that without CCP consent would be ilegal and completely against the ToS and i don't suggest doing it in any way.

Dunno, never interested myself in that game(?). EVE already provides chances to meet with players, WiS would beef them up.

EVE is a sci-fi simulator, not just space strategy...
It's includes walking.

In EVE, as in RL, many people blinded by constant money need.

There is a lot of things that we can do in EVE. But WHAT IF you have enough ISK for the rest of the EVE's life? Well, this is impossible to do in game, because it's designed to keep the players busy(busy, not entertained). But it's possible through $>PLEX, legally.

So the question is: What you will do in this game just because you LIKED IT, not just because it's has some proffit... A few things.
The more real monet you spend for game the less things is there for you to do. Interesting :)

okay Inferno 1.3 has been released.... do we get to see a WIS dev blog soon.. the CSM minutes got super hot dropped by NDA so there was not much information in that.

Someday I will have the time to play. For now it is mining afk in High sec. In Cheap ships

Short answer, we will not see any devblog anytime.

Long answer:

CCP Bayesian wrote:
I've got bad news about the devblog we promised. It's been swallowed by the black hole of corporateness and won't be seeing the light of day for the foreseeable future. The team have been as vocal as we can about the merits of putting it out but to no avail. We're continuing to try and work out a way of showing you work we're proud of and think you will like but for now our hands are completely tied.


My current guess, for what is worth, is that ETA for WiS has been delayed to 2014 as soonest and that's not granted.

Well I guess we can talk amoungst our selves....


I was wondering if anyone would like to join me on a Podcast where we can discuss the Moving avatars

Topics we would hit would be
- The Creepy Gap - why did CCP decide to Jump it- (Second Geration Avatar
- The importance of Realistic characters vs a Character drawing style
- How much money could a person really make via Peacoks only
- Ratio of Mechanics vs Graphics, What short cuts CCP as enjoyed by only rendering Space ships

- what specifics did FIS zelots hate about Incarna

This will be the first cast.
I hope that the second ones I will get some Questions from CCP and/or Team Avatar we can discuss, or dig some issues cover in the multiple threads produced but the eve public.

This podcast will provide entertainment for players and also Team Avatar, as we pretend to know what we are talking about and tell CCP how we think the direction of WIS should go, or include

So we won't be covering anything covered by NDA so Bring out your tinfoil hats if you like. It is

Arydanika from voices from the void has offered to help with the pod cast taking on the roll of that person who does not know much about Wis

I plan to do this in a couple of weeks any one else beside Lost True would like to join. One more person on top of Myself, lost true and arydanika would work well

Someday I will have the time to play. For now it is mining afk in High sec. In Cheap ships

I'm not a WiS hater, though I'm very much against certain visions of WiS, so could be up for this.

Never been on a podcast before though!
