So yesterday I got an email from CCP, titled “Totality Realized”. Even though I’m well aware of what’s been going on with all the Trig invasions, I figured ‘Hey interesting, wonder what CCP has to say about this new stage of the game?’.
What does CCP have to say about this interesting new phase, you ask?
Nothing. Zero. Zilch. Nada.
The email has a Trig logo, and buttons to Download, Recover Account, and Download some Apps.
Not one word about what Totality means, who Trigs are, changes to the game, exciting new phases of the invasion. Not even a link to an interesting video.
I mean, I get that CCP is so out of touch with the reality of today’s gaming market that they think everyone is completely clued in to their game at all times and breathlessly awaits the release of each new bug-fest of code. But seriously, CCP - your game is a tired old backwater. You’re bleeding players and subs, game participation is dropping, and people just don’t have the time anymore to waste hours on EVE trying to get something interesting to occur.
Next time you have an entire new game phase to announce, maybe you should consider paying somebody for a couple hours work to actually attach something interesting to the announcement email.
