Another CCP Interview about Fanfest, Blockchain and Events

The topics of the interview are rather stale by now, but one thing jumps you like a facehugger: The quality of the text and the number of typos are so bad that one has to wonder if CCP requested to not run QA over the text after the first iteration.

Another fun bit is this:

2021 saw over 24 million active users in 2021, spurred on by both the new new-player experience, but also launching the MMO on the Epic Game Store and opening the universe of New Eden up to even more players.

Last year, CCP claimed that EVE in its entire 20 years of existence had 20M life time characters, but now in 2021 this number was surpassed in just one year, more than doubling the number of life time characters? :thinking:



So they can finally stop re-implementing the NPE over and over and actually make the rest of the game worth playing again?


I envy your hope, mine was lost sometime ago.

Yeah, sure!

Yeah, no, I wasn’t seriously counting on that

Cooking the numbers?


Since the text has a number of other typo’s, the writer probably meant (or was supplied with data) about 24m lifetime “users” — which could be defined as the slightest possible interaction with EVE — but any “facts” may have passed through a “marketing fluff” filter, and came out as if 24m were gained in 2021.

It’s like the way our government reports c0vid cases.


Buy Plex,

It is clear CCP is gonna allows us to trade plex at their commision.

It is nice to see that CCP is finally accepting their liability to unfulfilled subscription, allowing RMT will obliterate that debt overnight.

They prolly want to paint a better picture of themselves to catch the Xbox eye. It’s no secret that after dropping near $10,000,000,000 for the ZeniMax group and then ponying up another $75,000,000,000 for the Activision group, that MS is on a spree and have no problem overpaying for game companies.

Heh. Just about anyone could write the press release:
“We determined that Pearl Abyss is uniquely positioned to help us engage with the Korean and other Asian gaming markets, notwithstanding their EVE Online property, which boasts 24m users worldwide.” — MSFT

I’m asking myself, why would anyone make a claim that can easily be refuted? In this arena anyway. The average Eve player has 10-20 tabs open with Google® being at least 1 of them.

Is it a disorder or merely a symptom of a delusional mindset?
