You mean the same devs who have made so many errors in judgment to the point where lovers of the game got so disgusted that they up and left?
I wouldn’t put a lot of stock in people who have a great game with more then 60k concurrent players and manage to whittle that down to 15k players.
At this point, any fool can realize that what the devs have said during the past 10 years is BS.
So they say.
You can continue to wear your pink-shaded glasses but as far as I’m concerned, these devs are just okay to code, not make policy.
PS: At this point, PA should take away CCP’s abilities to make policy on EVE. They clearly are incompetent to run a game like EVE. They should just sit in cubicles and code. Period.
This is true but this is also relative to the universe size, even 200 players can be enough if the universe was only 50 systems.
If the Eve universe was 1/4 the size everything would be thriving and players would not feel the emptyness at all.
We still have 14-20k players mostly online during prime times most other mmo’s operate at around 1k-4k players per server and at 4k it feels ridiculously full but that is because their landscape is way smaller.
Eve was at its best at 60k players its now 1/3rd so to get the same feeling even 1/3rd of the universe would feel great.
I like the map, sov, alliance and highsec safety changes. But I would not like all the other changes. ship durability, less star systems,value from idle ships and extended skills beyond the pilot skills. Those changes kind off destroy the current eve gameplay if you ask me.
Spot on, I think. With lower numbers on Serenity, and with similar complaints as we have on TQ the dire question is “how to at least maintain critical social mass or, preferably, surpass it”. From what we’ve seen since 2019, the game’s owners do not know the answer for EvE Online (any server).
While ignoring the facts that have been painfully repeated again and again since the introduction of Black Out, Scarcity and the rest of it, namely that they are driving players away while failing to attract new long-term players (resulting in today’s PCU), someone somewhere has dreamed up a marvelous solution: “Let’s make a new game based on what we (CCP) accept as legitimate complaints”.
If you go through the translation carefully, you will see less and less of the sandbox, and more and more of the themepark (e.g. bonuses from challenges, bonuses from tasks, even bonuses from ships collecting dust in a hangar). And paying a “fee” to get back a lost ship, wasn’t that a EvE Echoes thing that created a row because of the (real cash) cost ?
If one can never be wrong, one is bound to make the next big mistake.
Why you are you trying to get along with me? Can’t you see that I just want to be enemies?
I just want to fight with people, and all these guys keep trying to find ways for us to coexist without conflict… it’s a waking nightmare. What has this world come to? And then, if that wasn’t already bad enough, they won’t even return my animosity and hostility when arguing with me.
Cats have better hearing overall. A dog’s hearing range is 67hz–45khz. A cat’s range is 45hz–64khz. (More hz means higher pitch. Humans hear 64hz–23khz)
Dogs have 18 muscles in each ear. Cats have 32 (humans have 6). Cats can rotate their ears independently 180 degrees. They can turn in the direction of sound 10 times faster than a dog’s.
Dogs are more prone to ear issues because their ear canal is L-shaped. A cat’s ear canals are self-cleaning.
In short, cats are more awesome than dogs
