I don’t believe in or do roleplay. That being said, the loss of the Captain’s Quarters, an extra option not forced on anyone, was a mistake by CCP.
If left, even with winers for it’s lack of completion, CQ would have done no harm to anyone and would have tailored to the actual romance of space, ships, and people. CQ’s removal even cost the loss close to 12% of the game’s actual population over the last year. (that means a large loss of PLEX sales. The amount of time and energy put into creating the captain’s quarters justified just leaving it in without bothering to do more than to make sure it stays accessible. The beauty alone justified more than that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjdqPiBvTBE
In a game where you cannot trust your corp mates to not use alts to steal from you, play as moles… ETC., and the lack of ability to reap true justice without sacrificing ; the lack of a place of respose leaves one’s mind outside and alone at there computer rather than in game where one is separated from their spaceship/pod avatar that they spend more time dressing up than their characters.
The question is, "Why can CCP not understand the human need to rest, as one would from any rat race in game or out and without having to stare solely at the space ships that limit you. That fail you. That you don’t understand why they fail you so easily. That are too expensive to fly like they should be flown. With the bell curve so high and the risk variables so ridiculously manipulated for plex sales, EVE Online is but a ball of stress without the true romance of a space faring society, the human element (note: We are human before we turn on our computers CCP.), that allows one to lose themselves in the game and forget the mundane world.
Since most of one’s time is spent in space and in hanger examining the enormous variety of ships, the CQ suffered the “lack of use” excuse that would have been fixed with the ability to interactively meet with corp mates at station bars or viewing areas with the ability to see outside the station while docked and examine those camped outside at war with you. The lack of ability to see and plan keeps most noob corps staring at ships they both can’t afford to fly and don’t know how to fight with. A major deterrent for noobs staying long enough to see how great life in EVE can really be.
Trunover is just too great as it is. CCP has one more problem. Players with personal ethics, the ones that will do anything to make things right. An option not available in eve. Financially or otherwise. There is more to it than an eye for an eye.
Thats it for this windbag and no I don’t expect CCP to change anything, I just pray.
