Okay so let’s address a few points.
- Eve is not dead.
Eve Online’s play base is far to loyal for this game to ever “tank”. It would be pointless in the extreme to assume that simply adding a “loot box” (which it is not) is going to fail cascade Eve Online. Micro Transactions are apart of gaming business now. Get used to it, Fortnite, Apex etc is no different.
- Low sec is not dead.
The issue here is simple, you are trying to take large cruiser/logi battleship/logi gangs into low sec looking for a fight when the majority of pilots fly Frigates and destroyers in these areas, if you want the first listed kind of fights. Take your fleets to null and pick on the big boys. Stop trying to score easy, campy gate kills and then complain when an area has gone dead because you have been camping it for weeks on end, of course people are going to move. Use your common sense.
- Eve is not “P2W”
Skill points do not make a skilful pilot, it is that simple, you can go to ebay and buy a 150mil SP toon (starting fresh yourself) the first ship you get into with no knowledge of the game or how it works, you are dead, Injector are not “p2w”. Plex is not “P2W”. So let’s stop this "eve online is P2w nonsense.
- Faction warfare is not “dead”.
Faction warfare is very much like the market game, in the fact is, if the sides hold a “stalemate” non stop then all LP i.e faction items and ships become worthless because the market becomes saturated with them. So you have to understand that FW needs to swing back and forth non stop. Of course you could just put some effort into running a corp, recruit a crap ton of players and wing it your way, hell the content would be good no?
- CCP & Pearl Abyss
CCP is not “controlled” by PA, it was an acquisition. Nothing more. CCP Games is a FULLY independent company operating in it’s own parameters. PA does not and will not tell CCP games how to govern Eve Online, the statements were very clear on this and to accuse CCP of being under “PA control” is absolute rubbish. Read the released statements before you make stupid posts based on your opinions.
- Loot boxes
Definition of a “loot box” is an item that can be brought for IRL cash to further you in-game and or give you an advantage over other players. This does NOT exist in Eve Online and if I know CCP, it NEVER will
These do NOT exist in Eve Online, so this new event hands you rewards in a “box” - So you go into an uproar and accuse CCP of loot boxes? You what? You remember that thing we had, where you had to match the wavvy lines (can’t remember the name) you remember the stages and then the rewards we got? What did they come in? Boxes, space boxes, not one person in Eve accused CCP of “loot boxes”. So just stop it. just because a reward for completing sites and killing stuff comes in a box doesn’t make it a “loot box”.
The bottom line is, Eve Online is perfect the way it is, so what if CCP want to “shake things up” - You are not required to like it, at all. If you don’t want to buy injectors, skins, plex, then don’t, don’t come on the forums making post after post about it. It is what it is, Eve Online is not going to “tank” at all, not now, not in 5 years, it 15 year’s Eve Online will still be here, it will you, the whiners and complainers who will have moved on because CCP Games is a company that does what it wants for it’s dream of how the game should be, their dream, their design, not yours.
So how about as a community we turn “general discussion” about Eve Online, not a discussion on what you “perceive” CCP Games flaws to be.
Thanks for reading, see you on the field!
