/r/eve is the absolute worst partner CCP Games could ever have.
The subreddit is what initially attracted me to Eve Online but it has recently become an enemy of the game. Anyone searching for information about Eve Online is likely to be directed to /r/eve and instantly be discouraged from ever trying the game.
Why does CCP continue to list /r/eve as a partner considering the level of RAW HATE that spews from this pit of toxicity?
I would hate to think you’re rewarding anyone for it.
CCP - Please remove /r/eve from the partner program.
I just feel sad for all the complete noobs that go there and see all that bitter hatred and start asking the sub if they should even play this game.
I know the sub always tells them in the comments to just play the game and enjoy it and do whatever makes them happy and they are supportive there but the actual state of that sub is just sad sometimes.
Still some good memes though can’t deny that.
yo, Vinne, I love your videos man thank you for the like. You are my favourite Eve content creator. Much love.
You can try and counter that by creating newbie initiatives. Go help newbies in Rookie channel, talk to newbies, show them the game and show them that instead of doom and gloom and “forever newbie” they can do well and be prosperous, even an as alpha.
Interact with and support newbs. Don’t just only nuke a newbie in a Heron but also contact him afterwards.
You get what you sow. If CCP continuously releases bad features, even the friendliest of communities will eventually turn into a hateful mob. I remember times when the forums were called the cesspool of the community and r/eve the glorious hub of supportiveness for EVE. If that has changed and reversed, then I would be very worried in your case.
I am just glad that more people started to see just how bad of a developer CCP really is and stopped blissfully ignoring all the glaring issues and started to give them flak for their bad quality. The more people realize this, the sooner we can have a better game again.
These criteria are still met on r/eve simply by virtue of the Stupid Questions thread and the Nice Friday thread every week, as well as responses to newbie topics. Here, though? Newbie questions remain unanswered for hours.
Do they? For a time, CCP actively tried to stifle any kind of conversation with the Slow Mode for every topic they created. This led to situations where trolls could just flag all kinds of posts that they didn’t like and the post would not be able to revert the hiding of their content even though it did not break any rules. And where’s the accountability when you cannot even flag a CCP post for the sheer stupidity that was posted because you receive a warning or temp ban if you do?
No, /r/EVE is not an enemy of the game. It’s the only place players can actually post freely about the state of the game without their posts getting Basterloded. People on /r/EVE don’t hate the game, they hate what CCP is doing to the game and the direction things are headed. Which is indicative of the fact that they love EVE Online and care about what happens to it. Otherwise why would they be upset?
Actions – consequences. Dev makes stupid choices – angry player base.
I’ve liquidated all my industry related assets and trained all my toons for combat. Just gonna grief until the servers are turned off.
CCP playing stupid games, CCP winning stupid prizes.
12 years in the game, 10 on this character… I’ve done it all. Can confirm: don’t get attached to whatever you do in EVE, CCP will come along and ruin it completely.
You know what’s especially funny? You’d sooner get in touch (exchange feedback, report bugs, and so on) with a CSM member or even a CCP employee using the /r/eve reddit channel than trying to do it here on the official game forum.
