Hey, the dev blog is back again!

Anyway, I look forward to these changes. I hope you are able to pull it off!

Is this going to lead to lots of smaller changes in each category or several large ones at once?

That really depends on what makes sense as the development team look at what will make the best release along with player and CSM feedback.

This is a pretty huge change to the way CCP operates, and there should be some more details in the CSM minutes, which should be out tomorrow. CCP Unifex is awesome, FYI.

This sounds promising. And given the track record you guys have been building with the last couple expansions, I'm already excited. Smile

Good blog, Unifex. Now I'm more eager than ever to see the minutes.

Above all though, I'm truly glad to see you talking the language of ambition and vision again. The last 3 "fix focused" expansions have been really excellent, and EVE as a game is massively more polished, reliable and playable than it was before Crucible. But now is the time to build on that solid foundation and really expand EVE. Many older EVE players will be gun-shy of the "vision thing", but CCP has shown that ~iteration~ isn't just a cruel joke any more, but something you can and will genuinely deliver.

What made Apocrypha great wasn't just that it pushed all the "PVE/PVP/Exploration/Industry" buttons, but that it offered us new things to do, and new ways to live life in New Eden. I hope that "new ways to live" will be your watchword going forward: polish, bugfixes and UI improvements are good and necessary, but they're only 1 axis of the graph that chart's EVEs rise.

In a weird way I believe that 2013 marks the end of the longest live beta in the gaming industry's history. And now we're ready to go live.

Somehow I think IA may have an issue with that.

It was a great CSM summit so I hope you like the minutes. As for 2013, we are certain in a different place as we enter Eve Online second decade. Bring it on!

"no major drama" in 2012?

Unifubar Inventory anyone? (that still isn't quite right b/c it lacks the promised "persistence" still) Then the "weekly fixes till its as good as it was before" that persisted for a whole of two weeks then seemingly the entire staff went on vacation for 2 months...

Fix what you've broken this year, make it all actually work as good as the previous system (ie, atleast maintaining the same level of functionality, it currently still has LESS), then you can look at making new things, so long as you finally decide to not push broken things onto TQ b/c thats what your time table demands. ("we honestly thought we were ready" line is complete BS)

Looks like you didn't really learn anything if you think there were no dramas this past year, so sad to see such a legacy of a great game being slowly killed by pride and arrogance of those working on it.
