  • Its been a few weeks since my friends & I quit. I met up with them after work today & the topic of eve didnt even come up. Goes to show how little impact this game actually had. I would recommend that anyone having second thoughts, do something about it, you wont regret it.

    Just felt like rubbing that in, after all it cost us $15 /mnth for how long? lol no game is worth 150 a year.

    I counted 8 people in this thread who claim to quit EVE. Mass exodus indeed

     lol no game is worth 150 a year.

     that's 0.5 a day. 2 cents/hour. I'd say it's pretty good. Not like you actually payd out of pocket any of them thx to PLEX...

    EVE is not "pay to play". What are you talking about lol? Since when does buying a virtual shirt = pay to play? You sound kind of...delusional and hyperbolic. (this is not meant as a personal attack, it's just an honest observation)

    Sounds like MMOs aren't for you ($15/month is incredibly cheap entertainment, actually), and perhaps you even had an unhealthy relationship with the game to begin with (inferring from your words, I get the impression that the game was like a monkey on your back).

    'm glad you met up with your friends and didn't talk about EVE. There are certainly so many other things in this world to talk about. But in no way is your lack of game conversation an indictment of the game. The fact that you noticed that you didn't talk about is more an indictment of your inability to let it go.

    For everyone whining that is "EVE is going in a bad direction and I am qutting in protest", check out the interview with CCP Soundave.

     

    Great interview, and sheds some light on issues that are causing people to rage uncontrollably.

    I erased EVE from my hard Drive today. It wont be coming back.

    CCP no longer cares about its player base,its true! Especially after the comments CCP made.

     

    When you have a game that ignores its player base all for the $$$$. Its time to move on.. As such I did. Along with some friends.. Goon,BCINC, RF, .. yup.. we are all leaving.

     

    Thanks CCP!

    come on, be honest, you couldnt cope with going back to highsec cause of the cool guys taking over the north...   :)

     

    dont use the excuse of ccp for introducing vanity items.

    lol, the OP for this thread is a bit old. But most of us"cool" guys left for another game about three weeks ago. Nothing personal. I do see a advantahge  if you are a newer player to EVE. Lets say the past couple years. Plenty of space to move into. Just not as populated.

    Wish you the best ! Happy gaming!

    It is just corporate damage control. They are going to present a story to put out the brushfires. I find it hard to believe anything CCP says after the years I have witnessed.

    I'm definitely in the "looking at what they do, not what they say" camp at the moment. On the other hand, I have enough PLEX to last my accounts until the next expansion, and Curse is still a fun place, and CCP have not as yet introduced power MTs.

    So I'll keep burning PLEX, messing about in NPC 0.0 and see what winter brings. At worst, I'll have added a few more million SP to my accounts and thereby increased their ebay value proportionately.

    Well then as I understand it is only you left in Perpeetum as the rest of your cool 'friends' resubbed to defend VFK.

    Heh, your cools 'friends' did not leave in first place.

    I'm so broke. I can't even pay attention.

    ive subbed on and off since 2004 (the game's beta). im done as well, probably forever. RL is busy and my precious free time will be spent on sick games like Deus Ex, ME3 and GW2. ive been a part of some of the best pvp corps in the game, seen and done all there is to do. most of the people i know are gone. there is nothing good on the horizon (broken feature fixes, revamps, anything pertaining to pvp and balance), and  nothing to look forward to until late 2012 at best.

    i would have kept one account to train skills if i didnt see the true colours of CCP's management. they are liars, and players are nothing but statistics to them. they dont deserve our money.

    Goodbye, hyperbolic drama queen. No one will miss you. EVE will continue on, as fun as ever, and your lost sub will amount to nothing more than another vet's entitlement tears. Have fun in those other "sick" games, and enjoy complaining about them.

    Can I have your stuff?

     

    You're soooo done with this game that you ressurect a 2 week old threads so you can post the exact same trolling you post in another thread. :)

     

    Balancing supers doesn't balance PvP and isn't something to look forward to?

     

    Guy above me nailed it - Drama queen!

     As far as I'm aware, not a single Goon left. 

    Mittens gave us all monicles to stay.  You must be thinking of someone else.

    And "defend" implies VFK was ever under any kind of a threat. 

    The mass exodus is a lie.

    the whole mass exodus thing might have been a lie.. but it did get peoples attention.. now.. more people than ever.. are aware of just how bad a game perpetuum is.. now thats a result ... probably not the one they intended though image

  • SraikSraik Olympia, WAPosts: 23Member

    I actually did the exodus thing and like Perp just fine thanks.  I will probably keep an eye on EvE to see how things shape up, but have no plans for resubbing barring some miracle.

    about time somebody took this game down. Good job perpetuam or whoever it is

    Good luck, Sraik. Things are shaping up great in EVE, by the way. ~45K people on every night, plenty of battles, no gold ammo, etc. Even though no one misses you after ragequitting, EVE will always welcome you back. No "miracle" needed.

    Are you referring to lulzsec? That's the only way this game can be taken down. It's rockin' right now. I have nothing against Perpetuum, but its 800 concurrent users really haven't had any affect on EVE, despite the drama queens on this board who feel obligated to announce their unsubbing.

    They can adjust a game all day, but they can't help the issue between the keyboard and the chair.

    This game is still alive and kicking. And it's still the biggest singleshard game out there. All other games are split into a ton of servers.

    I left recently because the last three expansions were just completely unexciting. Whatever great vision CCP may have for what eve will be, I felt they've neglected what it currently is for too long.

    Off to Perpetuum forums to count the number of FOOM recruitment scam threads.

    I made the fucking mistake to resubscribe :mad:

    Now i only login to update my skill-queue! The game isn't that good...and the last addons didn't bring anything cool new.

  • StrafingmirStrafingmir Ballwin, MOPosts: 24Member

    Anyone assuming this has anything to do with SOny is a total Tard, ahem, OP. Dust514 is releasing for PS3 only because of Microsofts horrible and shit quality control bullshit for Xboxlive, which is the same reason Portal 2 players don't have crossplatform. To put it simply Sony has nothing to lose by allowing open content to flow freely, and what would be rival competitors to release applications for their system Such as CCP and Valve because Sony's online support sucks.

    My experience has been the opposite. This game *is* that good. I'm having a blast. I've enjoyed the free expansions and look forward to more. You know that you can do more than just update your skill queue when you log on, right?

    Have fun in Perpetuum and the 800 concurrent users. I just logged into TQ with 42k+ pilots to pew pew with.

    The number already dropped just below 500...
