I call upon Pearl Abyss to be an adult and take charge of their company. CCP right or wrong sold themselves to Pearl Abyss. I am hoping pearl Abyss will guild CCP that frankly appear to be lost! Valkerie, World of Darkness, Dust 514 and the legendary 60 dollar virtual pants mistakes!! Do I need to keep going? Now I want to congratulate CCP in making a great product!!! Have confidence in doing what you do best! Creative content !!!
Why do you insist on having a group of well meaning amateurs guild you? I am talking about the CSM!!! Great chefs create many tasty dishes for a slew of customers! Usually your most passionate/demanding food customers are vegetarians! No chef would ever go speak to a vegetarian about a complaint about a third customer’s complaint or requests for a different type of steak!! The vegetarian will simple tell chef well he/she needs to not eat meat anyways so they would advise the chef to send them a plate of tofu and call it day! The third customer looking at his/her tofu will turn their nose up at it and walk out the door!!!
Now what the hell does this have to do with EVE?? Well substitute CSM for vegetarian customer and third customer as new players or lone individual high security players!!! I would also throw in adults who work 40 hours a week who cannot live the dedicated null security life style!
This why EVE cannot keep and retain new players.
I also would like to see a resurrection of new level 4 missions. I would like SCOPE type news reports weekly. Again these are things passive solo players can follow and get involved in. I also think without the CSM input/approval a SURPRISE or two can happen in the EVE Universe!!
On a personal note, I respect all current CSM and past members. But I want my steak!!
