If they want to buy ships from the current player base and sell them to new players - by the way they claim it leads to higher retention of said ‘new players’; and I support retention methods - then perhaps to appease the current eve community and add a p2e aspect they should offer a ‘kickback’ to the player base supplying the ships. Give us a percentage of the sale price for supplying the ships. For the slow to comprehend, that means give us some of the real money $-) (Not isk)
That’s not how it works. Loonatics are running the asylum.
Disband and dissolve the CSM.
What Eve needs is CCP to engage with the player / developer base directly via surveys and feedback otherwise, shut down their Github issue trackers, opening tickets there is a waste of time now it seems.
It seems their Github is basically a PR landing page.
CCP will do what’s best for CCP.
CSM will do what’s best for CSM.
If their interests intersect with your interests, it’s random luck.
People log in with multiple paid accounts…surely they only do so for some kind of advantage…yet they complain about ‘pay to win’.
People who pay zero towards the game complain when their source of free ISK gets diminished. Like, er, someone is paying for those ‘free’ ISK believe it or not. Yeah, and the people paying absolutely nothing at all moan loudest about ‘pay to win’.
People trade skill points, indeed farm them, buy entire characters…and they too moan about ‘pay to win’
The only thing missing in Eve is mirrors…for people to look in.
Seems to be the problem. They say they represent the players but where are they? I’ve only seen two so far, Brisc and Mike. Where are the rest? What are they all supposed to be doing to claim that they “represent” ?
Isn’t that what the CSM is supposed to be doing or do they just attend meetings through webcam? Whose interests do they represent if they have no contact with players, even players outside of their respective corporations or alliance?
gees, what did they do to you? Sounds like you’re ready to pod them and sell their clone carcass to the highest bidder.
I can’t say that the CSM represents or not at this moment but it seems they had something to do with this
so it’s not like they’re not doing anything for the game and its players. Perhaps more involvement in the EVE forum would help but seeing how Brisc gets treated in here, I don’t really blame them for limiting exposure.
They could do it like their economic reports. Though I don’t think CCP would likely publish any unfavourable results, at least a chance to submit survey feedback regularly would be an improvement, direct from the players.
P2E would not result in Eve + some people getting paid for playing. It would destroy Eve as we know it. The resulting game will have the same name, lore, graphics, and other trappings of Eve, but it won’t be Eve. P2E will dramatically impact player and developer incentives, and cause a massive shift in player demographics as the player base shifts from P4F to P2E.
Anyone who suggest Eve go P2E either doesn’t understand the ramifications, or doesn’t care, and just wants to get paid. Either way, they should not be listened to.
