Greetings fellow Capsuleers,
I’m playing this game from 2014 with breaks between my “seasons of eve”.
I’m currently considering of ending all my subscriptions, and would like to get your input to my decision of winning eve or not.
First of all, I should describe the kind of “Capsuleer” I 'm.
I like to multibox and have 10-12 accounts subscribed. If you would like to know as to why, it’s very simple actually. I’t keeps me more engaged with the game and I can organize more possible game-play scenarios in the game. Don’t get the impression that i’m a isk printing Capsuleer because i’m multiboxing. I pay normally with irl. money, because it’s a hobby. There are occasions that i can plex and I will do it, but it’s more like a reward for my achievement in the game than i feel that i’m obliged to achieve it.
Here we go, my problems with the game;
Game is being catered to people that are mostly alpha or just began the game and expect it to be a theme-park game where they can just reach “max level” in 1-2 months and be able to kill all and everything in the game with their small gang of couple friends. This mentality of CCP is killing this game and it’s aspect of being a sandbox. You just accept that a game like this is not meant to people that have goals that can’t even stretch out as far as 1-2 months and expect an end game in just couple months. I think new players are very important to the game and that it should be welcoming, but screwing over your player base that played for years and years, it’s not fair in my books. The talk about to much capitals or “the problem of being to strong” and again same people and same mentality. There isn’t to much capitals but you just need to understand that this game is existing already 14+ years and it’s normal that people will reach the ships that are here from the beginning and are here as the only ones still. But than again the people that expect this game to be like wow and want to get their daily dosis of instant gratification with killing a capital with just a kitchen-sink fleet that’s 1/5 the worth of the capital ship. Amazes me how a company can be like this and allow it’s long term players being in such and disadvantage and now what happened ? There isn’t anyone to shoot right ?
Scarcity, what should I complain about ? I think it had the goal to boost plex sales but nobody thought the effect of it on industry and just everything in eve. You want activity in a game and people being able to do it and not something like this. It’s also bad for people that play to plex and I think that should be possible and not be a mission impossible.
Catering to small group that consist of short term players mostly!
This game is being advertised as a sandbox multiplayer PLAYER EMPIRE BUILDING game.
If people (thousands of people) go together to create their own empire in a lawless place. How can it be thought as it’s cool that some people can come in as they wish and just kill the residents on a free basis to have content ? And than ask to make it also easy to kill and not to get killed ? How can a company that is right in management level cater to people like that, how can a person with common sense demand something like that, i just don’t get the thought process. You complain about people warping off and call them bot always but you know, most time it’s just people that don’t want to be your free content for that day, like how can you feel so entitled to kill another player when he doesn’t consent to the engagement. And than the most absurd part is that they really dare to ask to make it even more profitable to them and easier. It’s beyond my imagination that a company follows that people (a minority in the game) that are mostly in alpha free to play state and imagine that couple frigates should be able to take on an empire…
Bad management of the game. This game is going in a very bad direction, decisions are being made that are for very short term gains, is the impression that I get with the course of the changes. Another ship class is made useless as in regards marauders. They are now a free content for just couple frigates and the short term players. Screwing over their long term players again and again and again.
I actually made my mind and i’m 100% winning this game when i was writing this made me damn more aware that as long term player i’m just not taken in to consideration in any game-play. People asking for delayed local and all that useless junk ideas, i hope that ccp follows all of them and just puts a big strong NAIL ON THE COFFIN. And I invite all of the people to #holdforchange and please stop all plex transactions, let the plex drop in the deepest hole that ever existed in eve and just stop all your supply-chains. Make them feel it, make them understand that the players that they really dishonor and abandon are the people that make this universe run. Just a shame of a management that’s most likely leading eve to it’s death.
Thank you for reading and be safe o7.
I mentioned in here about free alpha players and I didn’t mean in any bad way or form or make them seem insignificant in general. Because they are also Capsuleers and are a very good part of eve that gives it more live and hopefully if any can not pay because of irl. I wish you best luck and hope you can afford as much as you want and because of that people should be able to plex their account with a reasonable effort. But I think as I said, it’s wrong to cater to that player base as if their the only people playing the game and in the broader spectrum of the meaning of ‘free to play alpha’ that I ment, as also new people that expect this game to be a wow a like theme-park game and reach “end-game” in couple months and are actively campaigning to turn this nice game that is EvE SANDBOX in to a theme- park with just goals that will be completed in an time frame of 1 month and just be played for 1,5 months. The typical theme-park player… Funy / sad part is that EvE is really turning in a game like that .
