  • Descent Underground - kickstarter launch. in EVE Communication Center

    Rather disturbingly the amounts have slowed.

    Given they plan to do an awesome single campaign as well I really hope this makes it.

    Looks so good.

    Huh, wait a minute... did I miss a memo? Weren't those guys working in Star Citizen? Why are they making another game? Question

    Chris Roberts moved most of the teams to Los Angeles and Wingman (Eric Peterson) did not want to go, Viewmaster (Michael Morlan) was let go when they stopped making wingmans hanger and he has just gotten back from a shoot in Indonesia and Designopotamus (Rob Irving) also decided not to go to LA just recently.

    Frankly Star Citizens loss is our gain, I am hoping this community will manage to capture what is now missing from the Star Citizen community, that friendly atmosphere SC had at the start that seems to have gone now. You go to the forums and there are so few people on there from 18 months ago that still bother to comment.

    With the team they have assembled this is going to be a cool game, they have over 100 years of combined experience in space games.

    I will admit I have backed Star Citizen, Elite: Dangerous and now this. I love to play elite when i get a minute, I havent bothered to play SC because the magic really is gone but this one really rekindles the hope.

    They have the IP for decesent, it is a prequel so no story line redos and they are doing VR with the unreal engine Big smile

    Oh Steve that has to be one of the funniest statements I have ever heard.

    They like corporate roles have been on schedule to be looked at for, hell so long it really does not matter any more.

    There have been so many times that it has been promised to be fixed, CCP makes politicians sound honest.

    Lets be blunt, it will never happen, they will talk and talk and talk, oh and then they will promise, then explain why they have to break that promise and then talk and talk and talk some more. And just like the creation of this thread shows, when it comes to breaking the promise CCP will use the CSM as a bus road bump.



    Something to remember:

    I'm not PR for CCP. I have a better idea of what CCP is working on than a regular player.

    Steve you are not PR...but you seem to forget how many times us regular players have been told this was going to be fixed.

    And lets face it talk is cheap and frankly CCP have even managed to cheapen that phrase. Until it is actually done that is all it is cheap talk.

  • Descent Underground - kickstarter launch. in EVE Communication Center

    As the Title says The Descent Underground Kickstarter just launched.

    This looks like a brilliant game it is an updated version of the old descent game. A lot of the original Star Citizen team is involved with this one and I think it looks great. Big smile

    And happy birthday thread.

    2 years have now gone by.

  • POSes: I am a small portion of the community in Council of Stellar Management

    Two Steps post is dated 17th of January 2013, it is now December 2014 and all CCP have done is talk.

    This problem has been around for a very long time, we have been told time and again that it will be fixed and all we ever get is talk. Now you get a survey to go with the talking.

    CCP had a great game on its hands will in front of anything else and what did they do, blow the cash on developing other games that never went any where.

    Glad I stopped paying for this game a few years ago.

    Well those that remain, have fun.

    Well given what Seagull's job is, I'd say that she's in a position to know.

    If you're determined to believe that everything CCP say is a lie then I can't stop you.

    What a strange word for you to use. Lie.

    Are you saying that CCP has lied to its customers before?

    If your allegations are true, we would be pretty stupid to take their word for it again wouldn't we?


    No, that's something you decided to invent. To the best of my knowledge, CCP were completely truthful during my CSM term. Obviously they immediately didn't say everything they know, because that's the business they're in, and some of them said a couple of things that they turned out to be wrong about or changed their minds on later (eg: freighter rigs). But no deliberate deception that I am aware of.

    With specific respect to Seagull's plan, if it's a deception, even a self-deception, then it's a pretty elaborate and well supported one. I think it would probably be less effort to just do what she said than to fake it to this extent.

    Strange, I re-read the posts and it was you who used the word lie, not I and you seemed to use it an awful lot again in
    "Malc: They're working in structures, look they even made a picture to make it easy to understand

    Frying: Lies, all lies! Every piece of good news is a lie because I'm literally addictde to drama and I need a scandal like a junkie needs a wrap of ******

    Malc: No they're not lying, I have every reason to believe they mean it.

    Brooks Puntai: herpa derp that must mean they're lying because I'd rather biomass than ever admit any piece of good news into my cramped cerebellum."

    As I said strange choice of words YOU chose. No one chose them for you. This time round you brought up TRUTH, you really must have a trust issue with CCP, that you are refusing to acknowledge.

    Thank you for that, that is what happens when you write something late at night like I am again.

  • When Will CSM/CCP Realize There is More Than One Type of Player Base? in Council of Stellar Management

    Thank you to the CSM for a very funny read.

    This thread and the why the CSM thread.

    Players come along and state an opinion, the CSM or in the case of the other thread CCP comes along and attacks them for their views. Rather than finding out more about their view point.

    And CCP and the CSM wonders why no one bothers to vote and that they are now below 10%
    And EvE subs are dropping.

    Some very funny stuff thank you.

    finally you're starting to consider our true needs

    it's not too early to hire frying doom as your campaign manager for your csm10 candidacy

    I only work for truck loads of cash. Big smile

    Honestly the best campaign to run next year is not against the null sec blocks, it is against CCP.

    If you listen to what the CSM has stated in the last few years, We did not want to rock the boat, because we might lose access and CCP frowning on the CSM having pet projects and the various other things the CSM has said about it being on a CCP leash.

    That is why people are sick of the CSM, it is their as the PLAYERS representatives but it is just not anymore.

    So the best campaign next year is an attack at CCP.

    And to comment on the low amount of Votes :

    - 1 Announcment in Launcher, for most of the time second/thrid slide, so not really effective
    - 1 News at mid-election to inform that Elections were opened, quickly overshadowed by some DevBlogs
    - No "In game Login Screen Announcment" like there was every single year before
    - No Candidates who actually reached out in Game to High Sec. I remember having at least 1 or 2 CSM candidates sending Eve-Mails to as much people as they could, this year around no one did it.

    I would also say that each year players who are involved feels that the CSM is less and less meaningful and more and more of a "advisor" than anything else, which dosen't help getting people to actually read and vote :)
    The Mittani raised awareness of the CSM, but it's slipping back to the way it was in his absence. Never before did highsec have as much power in the CSM as when the Face of Goonswarm rose up and let the galaxy know just what a CSM candidate was capable of.

    CSM 5 was nearly as dry as any before it, but The Mittani still made excellent and largely unknown strides forward. This was noted by several, and he used this leverage to gain popularity for his phenomenal landslide victory in CSM 6. And CSM 7 saw an unprecedented number of fresh highsec candidates running and even being elected.

    CSM 7 did great things, but without a flamboyant showoff to let everyone know about it, it mostly went unnoticed by the majority of the playerbase. People went back to playing the game, satisfied that everything was looking good and they didn't have to think in order to have fun in the game. Bugs are low as ever, new features are getting properly tested, and game balance is at an all-time high and steadily improving. Anyone who has been around for at least 2 years knows the great strides made by CCP. People became complacent. Fast-forward to today: CSM is still doing well, CCP is still doing well, and people are still complacent.



    TL;DR: Everything is fine. If anything starts to go downhill, people will barge onto the forums and the CSM will matter again. But until then, chill and enjoy EVE.

    Part of the problem is that the word "communication" is broad and vague.

    If someone expects that greater communication means that someone will finally give their idea about AFK cloaky campers bumping their tugboat Q-ship the respect that they believe it deserves, then any communication from, say, mynnna, is going to be disappointing to them, not least because of the tremendous odds that the communication will contain the word 'idiot' at least once. The latter is not ideal, but there's not much to be done about the former. "Better communication" does not mean "embracing every idea posted to (the wrong forum in) General Discussion," and it can't if the CSM is to have any value as a curator of player ideas.

    I should have been more specific, when I say communication, I mean active communication. The ability to actively listen to the community and respond appropriately to them. To be both a broadcaster and a receiver of messages.

    And no not implementing every hair brained idea. Personally I feel the community has spoken as far as how they feel about the CSMs ability to communicate their ideas to CCP.

  • Dev Blog: CSM 9 Results! in EVE Information Center

    Honestly Mike if you still don't get how the CSM blocks communication with the games players and how every other game does it even though it does use developer/staff time.

    You never will.

    Good luck representing less than 10% of the player base though. I am sure they will be happy.

    I thought we covered this.

    There are so many avenues of communication that all the CSM covering ALL of them would be redundant, repetitive, and redundant.

    So I am the forum person for the moment, the others drop in if the mood takes them, as you have seen CCP Leeloo also may stop by, especially if I point something specific out to her.

    What you don't see is the number of forum links that are brought up in our private chats. Or you don't see when a discussion between the forum and devs is ongoing (but not about something you are interested in) like in this discussion with WH folks https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=4558809#post4558809

    But don't let an isolated example distract you from your narrative that the system in place to be the conduit between players and CCP is actually the blockage.

    You won't find all the CSM here, you got me.

    You won't find all the devs here, they are off devving. If, like LS in the example, above, you can present a well reasoned argument then a conversation may ensue. If you throw up your hands and declare yourself to be unsubbing or that Eve is dying then do not expect engagement from busy people.

    This started as a thread about the CSM results. You voted or you didn't. If you didn't then you are in the majority of Eve players. Doesn't really matter to me, I got elected and I plan on trying to take your good ideas and comments forward and considering the rest before moving on. Rant, I'll read it. Argue persuasively and I will show it to others.

    Unsub? Yer stuff, can I haz?

    m

    Ok how a bout an easy example for you.

    I talk to you, face to face.
    Now I talk to someone else face to face and then they relate that message on to you.

    Which is the better communication?

    Or a more relevant example
    Hundreds of people ***** in a forum thread and CCP responds to the thread and the complaints of the people in it
    or
    Hundreds of people ***** in a forum thread and the CSM says we will take this up with CCP and due to the NDA this is never heard from again.

    EDIT: As to the argument that CSM is a barrier between CCP and the players: How does that argument survive the simple observation that the lines of communication between devs and players have greatly broadened and deepened since CSM 7? There weren't always lots of stickied blue topics in Features & Ideas, you know.

    Good communication, good communication is not a one way street. CCP has less to do with its player base than any other game I have seen. Lets us take F&I
    [Kronos] Mordu's Legion 17 pages 3 developer comments.
    First is the announcement

    Second is the statement "Adjusted OP to reflect that missile damage bonuses are all per level.
    Fozzie putting together a blurb on where the BPCs will come from and I'll update OP with that soon. Short version is that they will be available for Mordu's Legion LP as well as off new NPCs in low sec."

    Third is "The lock range limitation on the Garmur is very intentional. It may actually not be enough to keep it from being too powerful but it was a tradeoff that helped justify how strong the ship is otherwise.
    OP updated with details on how to get these things."

    The third part might be considered communication, just.

    Yes the CSM does act as a barrier from CCP actually having to listen to its playerbase and respond appropriately, not just in actions but in basic communication skills.

    But they do not really communicate, we have not gotten to the point that for all intents and purposes they are now communicating with the representatives of less than 10% of their players. And why, because the CSM has proven its self to be a poor communicator of the actual players wishes and desires, as well as more often acting as a mouth piece for CCP and not the players it supposedly represents.

    Hell look at Malcanis, he went into the CSM to get 0.0s problems fixed but nothing can be done because of the road map and this is what the 4th different road map so far and they only ever seem to do up a new one when it has been shown they are failing at introducing the last one.
